Resolutionizing – July

People – HOW is July over already? What happened to the summer? I swear we hardly had any! I need more sun. Swimming pools. Spare time. Cocktails. Although, honestly, looking at the grand scheme of things – I can’t complain. Now that July is over I find myself another year older and wiser (or soContinue reading “Resolutionizing – July”

Resolutionizing – June

Oh man – How is it time suddenly flying so fast?With the lockdowns and mask-terror ending and work getting EVEN busier (when that shouldn’t be humanly possible – it’s scary to see how little time is actually in a day! Plus, I can honestly say that things are just. going. great. I ‘blame’ most ofContinue reading “Resolutionizing – June”

A jab of truth

Life… Is returning to normal. It might be slowly, but it definitely is surely. And as survivors of the 2020 pandemic (doesn’t that sound dramatic), we can definitely say that we made it through all of the 5 stages of grief at one point or another: The grief over the loss of life as weContinue reading “A jab of truth”

I should know better.

Every day – and I literally mean every single day – I do things that can only be qualified as ‘stupid’. Actually, plainly and undeniably stupid.

You should not start a sentence with I. Not only does it apparently feel like an eyesore – it also quickly turns repetitive, isContinue reading “Personal Blogging – The I-thing”

Wee smirk

Man, I’m a sucker for accents. Totally and completely smitten with people who take sounding charming-as-fuck to the next level by putting a special layer of awesome on every word they speak. It’s probably a remnant from my youth-trauma, growing up as ‘a Limburger‘. Limburg, for the Non-Dutch out there…is a province round here inContinue reading “Wee smirk”

Resolutionizing – May

Did we make it through the snow and drizzle? I sure fucking hope so!The massive sunburn I got yesterday when playing my first baseball-match (a 10-3 victorrrrryyyyy!) of the year-post-corona definitely suggests we might be on the road to better weather. And with better weather, come better moods. At least, for me. I’m a totalContinue reading “Resolutionizing – May”

Nostalgia Googling

Every now and then I get these moments where I suddenly see something that takes me back, way back. Moments where old memories come rushing in and where I’m flooded with nostalgia. Not saying that I’m THAT old, looking back on a life well-lived, but I just apparently have one of those brains that makesContinue reading “Nostalgia Googling”
