Happy Summer Holidays!

The day before the national Belgian Holiday (hopefully) marks the day you’ve digested your exam results (and eventual hangovers), re-registered for the retakes or next year, and have finally been able to take a week off and just enjoy! We at Pangaea have also finally made it to the point that we can throw inContinue reading “Happy Summer Holidays!”

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”

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.”

On the Execution of Physical Distancing

Now we’ve collectively decided that it’s not a social distancing but a physical one only, we can start talking about how to finetune it to maximise both our safety, and the safety of everyone we come across on the streets. Cause let me tell you people, I don’t know if you’ve noticed but it’s notContinue reading “On the Execution of Physical Distancing”

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.”

Are we Reverting back to the lifestyle of our Grandparents?

Well hello there again! This week, I’ve been asking myself one specific question, over and over again: Are we, in general, reverting back to the habits of 18th and 19th century middle- and upper-class people? Are reading and going for long walks in nature, seeking solitude and peace and quiet the new yet old pass-timesContinue reading “Are we Reverting back to the lifestyle of our Grandparents?”

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 Idea(l) of Self-Improvement during a World-Wide Lock-Down

In case you had forgotten, today is Monday. Monday the 6th of April. Is it someone’s birthday today? Remember, you can’t use the excuse of “Oh sorry, I was so busy on the day I didn’t have time to congratulate you!” when you are reminded by a mutual friend three days late, this year. IContinue reading “On the Idea(l) of Self-Improvement during a World-Wide Lock-Down”

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”
