Happy 2017!

January 4, 2017

A new chapter, a fresh start, or just another day. Everybody has his own thoughts about the new year. We might think the same about the first of January though; rest.


For me, a new year means a fresh start. I never been a planner in life, but nowadays I am. I love a bit of structure, even when the structure doesn’t make any sense. And even though I am “only” 24, I do feel a bit pressure as well. Pressure to do what I love and feel happy about it. It seems like enough isn’t enough and the dream to becomes bigger every year.

The “boring” January isn’t boring this year. Niels and I are moving to Amsterdam. The place to be, in my opinion and of many others. “If I can make it there, I’m gonna make it anywhere” is wat Frankie sings about New York. If he was living in Amsterdam he would definitely sing the same about the capital city. Maybe not international, but national you can. Our plan is to stay there for a year or two, and just work on that bucket list. Living in Amsterdam; check. Many plans are in my mind, but lets do it step by step.

Last but not least, I wish everyone a happy (new) year. It might not feel new for you, but maybe you can make it new. Listen to your own bucket list and work on it. Don’t take life for granted, do something with it. And enjoy even the small things in life.

The best things in life are for free, the next ones are very expensive ;-).

If your are wondering why I am wearing this pom pom dress, well, just because it makes me feel happy, especially on a rainy day. You should try it. It works!
