Dealing with Stress

By the time this post goes up, I'll hopefully be done with thesis writing. For now, as I sit on my couch desperately trying not to think about that gross feeling in the pit of my stomach, I'll make a list of ways that I've de-stressed in the past. I know a lot of people [...]

Stages of the Thesis Life

The day is almost here. Which day? Doomsday. The deadline for my thesis submission is exactly T minus 1 week. And my head is spinning with all the anxiety and stress. This is actually my second thesis in the last year. Crazy, huh?! I'm currently doing a Masters in Linguistics, which requires a minimum of [...]

Tips for Healthy Lunch Recipes!

Living in the Netherlands can quickly trap you into the eternal loop of having just sandwiches and mainly bread-based meals for lunch. How European of me, eh? Especially considering our schedules nowadays (uni-students holler at me!), resorting to the easiest option - a simple old sandwich - can be quite tempting. Oh, all the possible [...]

Knick Knacks from the UK!

Autumn Decor

Well hello! It's just another day in the lovely season of Autumn.. Is it just me or am I the only one who gets urged to clean and tidy up everything in my studio apartment? I could be lying in my pig-stein of a dump all week(s) but the minute I make plans with someone [...]

When Life Spins Out of Control

You know that feeling you get when you're at that point in life where everything is just spinning out of control? When you don't know what to do because you can't even remember what's right and what's left? Life's struggles aren't unfamiliar to anyone (except for babies) but at one point you feel as if [...]
