To ‘block’ or not to ‘block’ – There is no question here

It’s block-time in Belgium! Exams are coming up soon, many of us are starting next week with their first exam(s). The lock-down and pandemic don’t stop us from getting a degree – but they make it so much more difficult … Now with the lock-down going on, you’d think technically we’d be at an advantageContinue reading “To ‘block’ or not to ‘block’ – There is no question here”

After the Great Realisation

A few days ago I wrote a post on the poem by Probably Tomfoolery, and if you guys thought I was able to get it out of my head since then, I can assure you you have thought wrong… The poem is incredibly well-written. It takes you, of course aided by visual representation of realContinue reading “After the Great Realisation”

Must-See Shows/Movies for Self-Growth

I know, I know, this is the most stereotypical blog-post you can think of, besides (baking) recipes. And we’ve already done the mandatory post about baking-related things. But this one is really more self-development and -realisation inclined than your standard “yo watch this Netflix show, it’s DOPE”-post There’s a lot of ideas regarding how moviesContinue reading “Must-See Shows/Movies for Self-Growth”

Regarding The Great Realisation

Have you seen this video yet? It’s a poem about the world-wide pandemic, our lives and society before that, and what good could come out of this. And I can’t stop watching it. Seriously. I don’t know about you guys but I have spent the past two weeks feeling pretty well adjusted to this situation.Continue reading “Regarding The Great Realisation”

If You Walk For Long Enough, You Will Find Answers

On Monday, after posting the previous blog post, I went for a very long walk on the outskirts of Heverlee, I saw a surprising few amount of people, and discovered new, grass-covered and bush-surrounded roads. I was gone for two hours, and the only thing I used my phone for was Spotify-ing my new favouriteContinue reading “If You Walk For Long Enough, You Will Find Answers”

The Sun Is Our Friend. And Right Now, We Need Her Desperately.

I might be the whitest person around here (Scottish roots show through the almost translucently fair skin, face full of freckles from 10 minutes out in the sunlight, and ginger-red hair), but I can’t be the only one celebrating the arrival of late spring and warm weather. Now of course I don’t know just howContinue reading “The Sun Is Our Friend. And Right Now, We Need Her Desperately.”

So This is Easter. And What Have I Done.

If you’re anything like me, which again, do your now-self and future-self a favour and try to run away from that possibility as hard as you can, you probably forgot both that Easter was coming, and what Easter was actually all about. For years and years, it meant a family-get-together, lots of food that wasContinue reading “So This is Easter. And What Have I Done.”

I’ll come right out with it: I lied

For the past blog-updates I’ve been (at least trying to come across as) positive, enjoying this lock-down, making the most out of it, and generally not very phased by having to remain indoors. But guys and gals and non-binary pals – I’ve been struggling. Tomorrow marks the first day of week 4 of lock-down andContinue reading “I’ll come right out with it: I lied”

On the Importance of Self-Care

Okay so it’s been… a while. Counting down what day we are on right now really doesn’t work for me, does it work for you? If you’re feeling very bothered by this whole lock-down, going around and around inside your own room, not feeling well, finally understanding how animals at the zoo must feel –Continue reading “On the Importance of Self-Care”

Keeping Mentally (In)Sane Right Now

Let’s get right down to business and talk about some things that will help keep your head in the right place and stop spiralling into the questions, the oh so many questions… Alright! So we’re still not feeling this whole lock-down situation all that well, are we? It’s still kind of boring, lonely, annoying, andContinue reading “Keeping Mentally (In)Sane Right Now”
