One of the only material memories of Rome which is left: some good, colorful and strangely formed pasta. No, hold on. It should be ‘which WAS left’, because now this delicious meal will be in my belly for quite a while.
According to my friends, today was ‘it’s-too-damn-cold-I’m-never-leaving-my-bed’-day. At least that was what I could conlude out of their photos which had been sent via snapchat. Consequently, I took their advice to heart and replaced my desk for the comforts of a very warm bed. Surrounded by books, pens and my laptop, I felt warm for […]
When I walked into Dutch class today, I was confronted with a different set-up: the tables were forming a group of four or six, spread around the room. The last time since I have sat like that was six years ago. The same teacher, same classroom, same groupmates, but a different year.

My friends faces were radiating joy, happiness and beauty, which were perfect to capture the atmosphere of the journey. Don’t get me wrong; the buildings were beautiful […]
The snapchat obsession is back, since the company has decided to add certain filters to the app. Normally, you take a picture, add a fliter and send it to a friend for 3 seconds, more or less. Now, you have the ability to add filters which deform your selfie to an animation. First thing that […]
I am a person who gets distracted really easy, which is a well-known fact of me. As for today, during my last class, when I thought the shadows created a beautiful pattern on the wall.
