A simple sum

So about this ‘alone’ business…Do you even know how lonely it is?Having to spend each night by yourself…When there’s only one thing you miss? I mean, I am (of course) great company….And it doesn’t really take all that much to see…That when it comes to myself….I don’t mind it being just me. Except for theContinue reading “A simple sum”

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!”

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).

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). And it vexes me to no end. Seriously. This poorContinue reading “Tinder Tales – Why ARE we here?”

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”

No more golden days

As fall begins to color the world around us – I mourn the loss of color in mine. I used to have golden days. Shimmering, bright,filled with an energy that fueled my world. They used to be golden days. Then distance set in,‘Tween you, me and the world.While dark greys color the hours.And even thoughContinue reading “No more golden days”

‘You should totally write a book’-prompts

‘Why don’t you just write a book?’ They’ll ask me, when they find out I blog. And like writing. And write, a lot. ‘Well, Wanda. You go for a ten minute run every Monday. Why don’t you just go run a marathon eh? No? Right.’ I’ll reply.‘And your kid is taking swimming lessons, isn’t he?Continue reading “‘You should totally write a book’-prompts”

Personal Blogging – Out for the count

Two months to the day. It’s been two months, today. I published my first blog post on August 1st 2020: Cheers to fresh starts! It was a dreary Saturday, almost a month after ‘the break-up‘ and I felt like I needed back a part of my life that I lost when it ended between us.Continue reading “Personal Blogging – Out for the count”

Best Value Man Hunting

Earlier this year I switched jobs from software testing (and project coordination) at one of my companies clients to an entirely new field (bidmanagement) within the company itself. I went from being an external asset to swinging it as an internal manager. Quite the chance AND quite the change, let me tell you. Now –Continue reading “Best Value Man Hunting”
