Dating a Gym Rat: This is What Happens…

•••
I’ve been lucky enough to have found a boyfriend that is very dedicated - not only to me, but mostly to the gym, being fit and living a healthy lifestyle! I get a lot of questions about this from my family and friends. Does he eat normal? Do I also eat like he does? Does he eat strange things? How much time does he spend in the gym? What does he train?

In Maastricht the following three places are my favorite in-shop coffee spots: Take me to church: Bookshop Dominicanen & Coffeelovers. It doesn’t really matter if you like coffee or not, but if you are in Maastricht you should definitely pay a visit to the s[...]

Tomorrow, mañana, morgen: the habit of procrastination

•••
Tomorrow, mañana, morgen – an enchanted strange place far away where I can store the majority of my productivity, drive an accomplishments. Although I did learn over time to get things done (sometimes the hard way), as a student and recently in my professional life, I sometimes keep believing in the promise that tomorrow holds in my daily life.
