Whereas I was lamenting about how weird 2014 was, and generally not great for me personally,  2015 has turned into a major curveball so far. I may have spent quite a few days moaning and whinging about my displeasure of my current gig, I have noticed a quiet resolve within me growing. Guess it has … Continue reading

Shock and awe

No, it’s definitely not as dramatic as the correct military term, but to be fair, it is as eventful for me to be in complete shock and awe about what’s been going on in 2015 so far. A while ago I did write about going for a job interview at an interior design company, where … Continue reading

Wait. How did that happen?

So about 2 weeks ago I celebrated my 36th birthday. A Tuesday. I ended up taking that day off, simply because I can. The week prior I had a week off, not to go on holiday and visit some exotic place – no, I went back to school for a few days. Sort of try … Continue reading

Broken record

Mea culpa, I haven’t posted anything for so long, but I was starting to sound like a broken record. Tired, bored, bored beyond belief, exhausted, still very much on the job hunt. Honestly reading back a few posts and you pretty much get the gist of things. As I’ve sudden been taken down by a … Continue reading


Alas it was not meant to be. Unfortunately it did take far too long, and I had to take the initiative to  get the answer in the end. Yada yada, “we both were very impressed with you. And we certainly will keep your contact details.” Yeah, sure. Whatever. But at least I was kind enough … Continue reading

With a twist

The risk of me sounding like a broken record is very present. Still too tired, still suffering from a lack of sleep I try to catch up on the weekends. Still bored to tears most days of the week, still very much looking around for a different job. Still wondering what the hell I want, … Continue reading

Last of the Mohicans

There are days where I absolutely feel like the last of the Mohicans. Luckily though not like the survivors/protagonists in the movie of said title! As we speak I’m busy looking around for another gig, one that doesn’t require this absurd early rising for one, but also one that can offer a bit more of … Continue reading


March is approaching rather quickly, which means I’m nearly on my halfway point of my 6 months stint. And I know I can’t continue with this for a lot longer, at least not fulltime, it’s making me rather miserable, not to mention bored beyond belief. I have no doubt it would be the perfect job … Continue reading


This week I’ve been battling a nasty and rather stubborn cold, and there have been a couple of days where my head was in a fog. So I’ve mainly been busy with coughing my lungs out and sneezing my head off. All in all simply sharing the gift when out and about! Luckily for me, … Continue reading

Feeling the blues

As I find myself literally counting down the months, weeks and to a lesser extent the days, the more incumbent it becomes for me to get out of the office as soon as possible. I can handle being cooped up behind a desk and sitting in front of a computer screen for an X amount … Continue reading

Farewell! And hello!

January has once again come around, which can only mean one thing: another year has come to pass. Farewell 2014. Adieu. You weren’t a particularly good year, nor one I’ll come to miss in any shape or form and become one of those years where I will wax nostalgically about in the future. Challenging for … Continue reading

Mea culpa

My current gig is so wreaking havoc on my natural sleeping pattern, at the end of my day I’m just too tired to care. No real energy left for being creative, and let me guarantee you this: I do regret that. And as I have to get up at this ungodly hour, I don’t have … Continue reading

While I wasn’t looking

Well, guess we’re once again nearing the end of yet of 2014. The end of the year is always something that manages to spring up too quickly for me. Honestly, I don’t know what 2014 has given me at this point. Looking back I can see a very weird beginning, a certain vibe that urged … Continue reading

In retrospect

It’s always interesting to see some obvious patterns emerging when one actually pays attention. I’ve been metaphorically speaking so busy with pushing back the direction I was expected/supposed to take I’ve been at a standstill. The pushing back and trying not to lose any ground has lead me to a place of inertia, and I … Continue reading
