I wrote this about a year ago, when life was very different than it is now. Though, come to think of it, certain things have remained the same. The core feeling I was experiencing when I wrote this isn't fully gone, if I'm being completely honest. I wrote this as one of the prompts of … Continue reading Bottoms Up
Hello again! This is the third part of My journey to the land of pork (aka China). I moved to China about 9 months ago and I decided to document my experience and feelings when I was moving. This series (THE CHINA DIARIES) will also contain my experience living in China. If you'd like to … Continue reading My journey to the land of pork – Part 3: Hangzhou (Echo agency)
Welcome back to THE CHINA DIARIES. A few months ago (well, at this point it was 9 months ago..) I began my move from the Netherlands to China. Yup. That's one big leap. Like most millennials, I felt lost. I had just finished my second Masters degree and still had no idea what to do … Continue reading My journey to the land of pork – Part 2: India
I wrote this when I was processing what I was feeling my first few months in China. I moved away for a reason, but I couldn't help but look back. Why do we always look back to what was? Even when what was, wasn't necessarily as rosy as we think them to be. It's moments … Continue reading Greener moments
It's been a few months since I've written this post. It's been a whirlwind of emotions and trial and errors. I moved to China a good 8 months ago. I knew no one here and I was as paranoid as paranoid parrot. But before I moved I went to India. This is the first post in my new blog series, THE CHINA DIARIES.
It's scandalous how long this blogger award has remained in my drafts. Thanks to thebeyoutifulgal for nominating me! I received the nomination at least a year back and I'm only now posting this. So the award might be a little outdated but my answers are not! Get yourself a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy this … Continue reading The Sweet Blogger Award
It's been a while since my boyfriend and I broke up. Although I've missed my friend dearly, I, unlike many, don't regret the past few years one single bit. It's funny how we just cut people out of our lives because it doesn't seem to work out anymore. Like cutting off a string of balloons … Continue reading Reaching for the Stars | Feelings into Words.
I know it's been a while since summer and we're well into October already. But, honestly, these books have got nothing to do with summer. So if you're looking for a good book, keep on reading! As every year, Goodreads makes me set a goal of books to read for the year. I once naively … Continue reading My summer reads (and whether you should read these too)
So as some of you may have noticed through my Instagram posts, I spent my (possibly last) summer holiday on Aruba. My parents live there so going back was like going back home. But that doesn't mean that I don't feel like a tourist.. One thing I can say for sure is that it is nothing like … Continue reading What Do You Do When on Aruba?
Coming in. Hello. Hello? You there? I'm sorry I disappeared off the face of the planet - well, blogging planet really. I took about a year off of blogging to focus on school and work. To no one's surprise, life kind of took over and I needed all of my brain power to focus on … Continue reading A year in the life of a blogger on a hiatus
