In retrospect

April has been enormously hectic – beautiful, yet exhausting! Things are busy over here & I have really been struggling to find the time to blog between other things in the past few months. But I have found a moment to create words & I’m here to share them with you. ✨

It had been raining a lot these last weeks & it was so pretty. I love the relaxing sound of rain on a roof, which is comforting for no particular reason whatsoever & all the more beautiful because of it; the smell & the way the wind rises before a storm. Rainy days have tiny magic moments.

Gap year

For me, 2016 has been incredibly fast, demanding, & full of accomplishments I could only dream of the year before. I never thought any of these things would happen within a mere year. And one of the best decisions was definitely, taking a gap year.

Finishing high school is such a great accomplishment, but before you’re out the door you’re bombarded with college applications & constantly pressured to jump right into college after high school.

Life lessons

How ridiculous it feels to be 18.

tumblr_o7bpntjIaX1uhuqz4o1_1280I think it’s wonderful the fact that I can benefit from other people’s experiences & the lessons they have learned over the years.

I find myself reminding them daily because life is motion & change but the experiences & lessons remain  ☁️

Autumn walk

October has been pretty busy & has just flown by! 🐞

What I love about those rainy autumn days is walking through the fallen leaves, sun rays, embracing the smell of the wood & thinking about life. However, autumn is slowly coming to an end – & also 2016. But that’s insane, like wasn’t it April just a few days ago?

So I’ve used these lovely walks to think a little bit about the month/year so far & the good moments in this Autumn x

I’ve always been a shy person. It’s something that has been a big part of my personality since childhood. Even though I’ve come a long way over these past years & I improved a lot, it’s still something that I deal with sometimes.

Of course, I am not going to become a social butterfly overnight – & I don’t even want to. But I challenge myself & I am learning to gradually step out of my comfort zone everyday.

A work in progress

Here I am sitting down on a late afternoon, writing after another looong week. ✍🏼

For the past 3 weeks I have had my exam period. Right now, I’m feeling so calm + happy. Time moves slowly now & that’s possibly due to the fact I have no commitments holding me down.



I have finally escaped the shackles of exams & my summer vacation has officially start! All these weeks of hard work & no sleep have paid off. My final grades were pretty good, I’m so happy it’s over & I’m looking forward to 2 months of sleep + fun.
