Remember? I used to do these coffee shares on a weekly basis for quite some time. This morning, I thought that maybe I should join in again. In a year, where virtually meeting with friends and family has become the new normal, I no longer know how to welcome you, my dear reader into my … Continue reading If we were having coffee – 26th September 2020

Truth – T – A to Z Challenge 2019
Earlier this year I mentioned on my blog that I want to change professionally. From time to time I have had posts in a self-analysis style. In a way sharing these thoughts, makes me feel less lost. So the truth is that there are quite a few truths. I wrote a guest post for Gulara … Continue reading Truth – T – A to Z Challenge 2019
Journal – J – A to Z Challenge 2019
Journal Jessica opened her journal. Without reading the writing on the pages she flicked through to the first blank page. Today, she didn't want to write about what had happened in recent weeks. She wanted her creativity to kiss the page. She wanted the darkness of the past few weeks to evaporate. "You are beautiful," … Continue reading Journal – J – A to Z Challenge 2019
If we were having coffee (on the 4th of November 2018)
If we were having coffee today, then you'd tell me that I don't look fresh. I'd reassure you and tell you that I am a whole lot better. But I have been sick for over a week, therefore I did not have you over for coffee last week. You'd probably ask me what I have, … Continue reading If we were having coffee (on the 4th of November 2018)

Such as cleaning the bathroom (something I really do not enjoy doing), or pre-write … Continue reading The art of avoiding
When things become clearer
Since late August, I have a new student. And with this new student came a revelation. Things are getting clearer. Why did I want to become a journalist? WhWhy was I drawn to my parent's friends, teachers, professors, older kids? Why am I so emotional? Why do I have a hard time finding motivation? Why … Continue reading When things become clearer
where to start?
I don't know what to write today. That's why this post is going up on a Sunday and not a few days ago. Actually, it is not that I don't know what to write, it is that I have no idea where to start... Should I be writing a story, a little bit about my … Continue reading where to start?
When LinkedIn fails you
LinkedIn has the tendency to send me job opportunities. It can be quite annoying, especially as most jobs don't correspond to my profile or interests. Being an underpaid "happiness officer" for a French dating-app never really appealed to me. Still, I never turned off the notifications, as one never knows if something interesting might come up. … Continue reading When LinkedIn fails you
