Pokémagic

Remember that post I did a while back on how I was super unexpectedly connecting over Pokémon Go with a colleague (jezus, was that already almost two months ago?)? 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”

No Ragrets!

Regret: feel sad, repentant, or disappointed over (something that one has done or failed to do).Mistake: an act or judgement that is misguided or wrong. Apparently it’s the week of ‘tell Zoë she’s wrong about things!‘ (which, to be fair, is not one-week-a-year-occurrence) with people feeling the need to express their wisdom to me. Unrequested,Continue reading “No Ragrets!”

#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.

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”
