After which I got straight back into being a Poké-addict, even putting my friend code in my footer and joining a PokéGo-forum? Doesn’t matter!! Because noContinue reading “Pokémagic”

#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”

Tinder Tales – Why ARE we here?

“En wat zoek jij op Tinder, dan?’Translation: ‘So, what are you looking for on Tinder?’ It is THE most seen line (by me, anyway) on Tinder that tends to come up in pretty much ANY conversation I have on there (there’s quite some data available).

Obviously, since that’s pretty much why it’sContinue reading “Winning over Justice”
