Whenever I meet up with a friend and they ask me what I’ve been up to lately, I have to think really hard to try and remember how I’ve been spending my days. It must be so annoying, but I really can’t help it. Nowadays I have little to no structure in my life. Sometimes I even forget what day it is! Yes, I do have a job and I’m also taking driving lessons, but other than that the past month has been one long vacation: taking out the canoes when the weather is nice, reading books, watching an episode of some mindnumbing tv-series during a bubble bath, going to the movies, cooking, spending time with friends, taking long walks, enjoying the town and it’s public events, working out… Everyday I have been busy with fun stuff. Obviously I’m not complaining!
Most of all, it is awesome not having a school-deadline annoying me in the back of my head. Around this time last year I just came back home from my semester in Sweden and at the same time I was busy finishing up my thesis. SO MUCH STRESS. To everyone who is going through it now: good luck! You can do it! I myself am treasuring these last few stress-free months. Only three left till september…
My “year off” is not over yet, but I think I can already conclude it has been a success. Like a quote I found on the web: “There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm.” And although the past year has not been exactly calm (trust me: moving twice is no fun at all y’all), I did have the time to “stand still”. Sort of. Because I do not feel like I’ve been standing still AT ALL. I’m not going to go all “I NOW KNOW WHAT LIFE IS ABOUT” on your ass, because that is certainly not true, but the past year did give me a chance to catch a break. A welcome one indeed :-)
Anyway, like we would say in dutch: let’s go with the goat. I’ll share some ~objects of my affection~.
And here is a playlist of my fav songs of the moment. It turned out to be a bit of a weird and nonsensical one. Oh well.
Have a nice weekend everybody xx
