It really happened. Like I said in a previous blog: I am not from the US and therefore I did not vote. Not because I didn’t want to but because I couldn’t. Otherwise Hillary would have definitely had my vote. Not because I loved her, but because she was the best choice. Inevitable “Trump became president” article coming up. Unfortunately there were not only too … Continue reading Ya blew it!
Watching the US election from afar is like watching a burning house that isn’t your own. You feel bad for the victims of the fire, you worry the fire will spread to the neighbours and the pyromaniacs that lit it will surely not shy away from burning down more than their own land. The US election, as for many elections, as for many “adult” business … Continue reading The Divided States of America
We are definitely open-minded and we like to dabble into the mysterious but there comes a point were you just gotta tell yourself: “It’s time to stop.”.

My interest in politics is probably just as much as any average adult: When the time comes around to vote, I look at my options and I make a well balanced choice. What happens afterwards is absolutely mind boggling, because I don’t give one little sh*t whatsoever about how politicians handle their promises or how my country is being governed. I live in the Netherlands and … Continue reading Here’s what we think about politics:
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last several days, you’ve probably noticed Mr. Elon Musk took it upon himself to make sure we get to colonize the little redhead in our galaxy. I have to say: I thought being alive to witness the birth and massive growth of the internet was one of the finest things one could witness, but it seems … Continue reading Hey Ginger, we’re coming for you!
Wether your heroes are fictional or real, there is always more to them than meets the eye. When we think of a “hero” we usually think of super heroes from the Marvel or DC universe. Super powers, capes, tights, all of that. But a hero can be anybody, a person you look up to, somebody you hold in high regard. Your heroes can be close … Continue reading We could be heroes…
I got asked once whether I had a life or not by some girl in my high school class for knowing a lot about movies. People are quick to judge you and the things you do or like. They like to criticize certain things like watching movies or playing video games for being a “waste of time”. I am a pop-culture connoisseur, I love movies, series, … Continue reading Wasteful thinking
Opinions regarding social media differ greatly. Many people are really excited about it but there are also a lot of people who are skeptical when it comes to social media. They might have fears, worries or just a general sense of mistrust when it comes to social media. Sometimes this skepticism is definitely not unwarranted if we look at some of the things social media … Continue reading Not so social media
The first time I really got introduced to stand up comedy was when I watched Eddie Murphy’s ‘Delirious’. I instantly became a fan of stand up (I was already an Eddie Murphy fan) and started watching more and I decided I wanted to become a stand up comedian. Even as a small kid I realized it’s not easy to make it big in showbiz but … Continue reading The last laugh
