There’s a Dutch man asking for Coke

The first vacation I took without my parents, was to London, with a couple of friends. Two guys, two girls. We must have been all around 17 years old and were pretty excited about the trip, especially because we also planned our first night out ever. Yes, we were a bunch of Goody-good kids. We… Continue reading There’s a Dutch man asking for Coke

Honesty

I was raised in a country where "Freedom of Speech" is a very natural occasion. We are allowed to throw our honest opinion out in the open air. I never made much use of this privilege, however. And I will be "honest" with you, I am a bit skeptical. Freedom of Speech is often abused… Continue reading Honesty

Culture thing

I haven't been traveling much around the world as I would like too. However, I have been very lucky to meet expats within one silly hostel in Denmark where I lived in for 4 (!) years.

When English is not your first language

Some years back, I was at a course together with a colleague. We were waiting for some time for the teacher, when the receptionist told us "The teacher is gonna get late", she informed us.

"Forgiveness means no more feeling the need to take revenge". "Forgiveness means closure" . They say. So what does that entail? That you will be able to tightly hug the "enemy"?

I used to do Yoga. Not the "get into the tiger position" type of yoga. It was a meditation of some sort, maybe even therapy. One day we got the assignment to draw Mandala.

Feminism

For years women have been underestimated. Luckily some strong females have improved a lot for us living in the 21st century. Yet, still on today's days, women get paid less, don't get to management positions as easy and are expected to stay home when children "suddenly" pop-up. But, is it really only men who are… Continue reading Feminism

If you dislike Monday mornings even more because of this question, you're talking to the right person. So let's do this together. We're going to stand up straight. Give them a glazed look. And say:  "Absolutely nothing". And just walk away. Confidently.
