Dirty but smooth!

There’s never been any denying it: my sense of humor is an acquired taste. Mostly because it’s crazy, the things I find hysterically funny, and because it’s a tad too dirty, dark and direct for the tastes of the bigger public. My family, friends and exes have always, in my memory, laughed more ‘about’ meContinue reading “Dirty but smooth!”

#IdowhatIwant

People like patterns. Routines. Set sequences of activities in hierarchical order executed at expected times during mapped out time-spans. We’re creatures of habit that way. Which is fine. It’s fine. Totally fine. Until it’s not fine. Until it becomes an imposition on the way you fill your days and the way you distribute your energy.Continue reading “#IdowhatIwant”

Home Office Dangers

First of all let me get this straight (#unpopularopinion incumming):This whole C-business forcing us to be cooped up at home – I don’t mind it one bit. YAY for the home office! Seriously. I had to work in the office yesterday. Do you KNOW how (after a 6 month detox) UNBEARABLE it is to wearContinue reading “Home Office Dangers”

A series of unfortunate (pet-)events

Disclaimer:Before you start reading this: know that I am a true and honest petlover. I love the fluffy, the scaley, the scruffy and the slimy all in equal measure (except for wasps and jellyfish cause they freak me the fuck out). I cuddle puppers and have fostered loads of kittens and I volunteered at theContinue reading “A series of unfortunate (pet-)events”

Winning over Justice

One of my core values is, and has always been Just- or Fairness (‘Rechtvaardigheid’ is the much broader Dutch word that suits me better). It’s what drives a lot of my behavior and it’s what has the most profound influence on the way I’m getting through my days. Obviously, since that’s pretty much why it’sContinue reading “Winning over Justice”

Meditational Disaster

Please, on an average day – do NOT come and talk to me about the concept of ‘feeling’ energy. Or aura’s. Don’t preach to me about prayer, or mindfulness or *gasp* meditation. That whole floating bubble of illusion (or hallucinations), feelings and ‘getting in touch with your inner warrior’ is not my cuppa tea. AtContinue reading “Meditational Disaster”

Lights: 1 – Zoë: 0

Today was going to be my day. Today was going to be my victory. My coming of age as a strong, self-sufficient and capable woman. It would mark my entrance into the world of crafty handymen and DIY-goddesses and bring about a new era of enlightenment. Or, at least, actual light. Sadly, the fates sawContinue reading “Lights: 1 – Zoë: 0”

Personal Blogging: Listless

Lists have always played a big big role in my life. Mostly because I like the level of organization that they bring into the mix (and because they are, like myself, very goal-oriented) but also because they provide a (false) sense of safety. I mean, you can’t go wrong if you’re following the list, right.Continue reading “Personal Blogging: Listless”
