Spinning 

I’ve always used writing as a way of expressing my feelings, a way of coping. By writing down how I felt or feel, I could see clearer and often move on… Which is why most of my poems aren’t the happiest ones, but at least they’re real… Here’s just another example… ^^ Continue reading

25. Tell people (i.e. friends and family) about my YouTube channel

2016 has just started and I already completed one of the goals on my 30-before-30 list! I still have 6.5 years to go to complete this list, but yay! ^^ Marilyn and I had been planning our ‘grand reveal’ for a while now, but actually doing it had not happened until now. We filmed a crazy video around Christmas and added lots of drama (on purpose) showing how scared we were to do this. We have had our YouTube channels for almost a year now, but never told our family and friends. A few friends knew, but they were sworn to secrecy. Continue reading

Happy New Year! =)

Happy New Year everyone! I hope all your dreams may come true this year! I’ll be working on mine in the following years to come through my 30-before-30 list… ;) And I can already cross one item off the list! Yesterday (well, technically it was after midnight – so this morning) I told my family and friends about my YouTube channel together with Marilyn. We made a video and shared that on Facebook, so everyone could see it… We’re so scared now for the reactions!!! Anyway, I’ll make a more elaborate post about it later, because I want to dedicate a short post to every ‘goal’ I fulfill on the 30-before-30 list…  For now, I’ll leave you with the video we made. Excuse the drama, but this is a really big step for us!

I’m scared…

Not one of my happiest poems, but these thoughts keep running through my head like crazy and I just had to get it all out… As the song below says: “If I get it all down on paper, it’s no longer inside of me, threatening the life it belongs to. And I feel like I’m naked in front of a crowd, cause these words are my diary, screaming out loud.” It certainly helps getting it all down on paper, it’s at least a start. Even though it’s still all very scary to me and the words seem to yell right back at me…
