I think this is art...

I love things that are.. different. I guess you noticed. I read fairytales, love Tim Burton, and anything that has to do with bizarre twists of reality. That's why I love Lady Gaga also. And this guy in the video above. You could say he's crazy, but you could also say he has a vision, a passion. And you can tell he is a strong person, and I like strong people.

You might not agree with me, and pray for my crazy soul, but I really enjoy the strange.


Ps. Love Gaga's new album.


Decided to go for something dramatic. Had been feeling like wearing long skirts for a while. Too bad I just have black, so I thought; why not go all out??



Change is a good thing...

At least, I guess it is.

I never quite know wether I like or dislike change. I think I like the idea of change, and I can live with it if it's change that I started. If it's change that somebody else started, I dislike it. I like to be in control, I guess. It's a flaw, but I kind of accepted I'm a controlfreak. I'm also very curious, something that is a plus in my line of work (journalism).

Anyway, this period is a period of huge change for me, and it will be from now on. I knew this was coming. I felt stuck in my life for a long time, just going to school, mostly doing things I wasn't extremely enthusiastic about, training my ass of for hockey, and working a job that's nice but pays extremely bad.

As I said. This is a period of change. Sunday is my last hockeymatch. I quit because next schoolyear I won't be able to combine it. I thought for a long time more spare time would make me happier. My weeks would be going to school and then having things to do usually 5 out of 7 nights. That didn't make me happy.

So I figured quitting hockey (because I had to, there was little choice), would make me happy. But turns out, it makes me sad. I'm dreading the moment where the referee whistles for the end of the match on sunday. It will be my last match with this team ever.

In the beginning I had a hard time fitting in, they had all been playing hockey since they could walk, and knew everybody on the club. I had only played for about three years, and had no experience being a goalie in such a high league. Slowly, with hard work, I became more confident and better in my goalkeeping, and I won everybody's respect. Now, two years later, after all the struggles I find it very hard to say goodbye. I guess you don't realise how big of a part something is in your life, untill it's gone.

I know next season I'll be able to explore more sports (I will always be doing sports, it's who I am), just maybe not for the first three months (which will be cray-zay for me, I've never NOT played sports for more than a month). I will be able maybe to dance again, or to go do pilates. We'll see. But for now, it really hurts me to quit something turns out I loved very dearly.

There will be more parts explaining why this is a period of change for me, but right now, this is the biggest change. Only a few more days and I'm an ex-goalie. I know I'm a drama queen, and there will be things to fill the gap, but it just hurts me right now.


Ps. the pictures are of my team. We were two times champions, once in the field league, once in the winter league (which is indoors)


Thank you

To Meghan for introducing me to thepioneerwoman.com.

It makes me want to cook. It makes me believe I can cook. And it makes me think I can cook pretty things, like the pioneer woman.

Had never heard of the website before, and I LOVE it. That woman is hilarious, and I cannot wait for wednesday when I get to try one of the recipes. O my... which one???



What I wore for Queen's day..

April 30 is our celebration of Queen's day. Very lovely, with flags and happy people, and our royals going to towns and playing games and such. Nice, nice.

Our official colour is Orange. But I hate that colour, so I don't own anything in it. I decided to wear our other colours, from our flag, red, white and blue! Casual but nice I'd say.



What I'm wearing

Loving the baggy pants, and the nude colours. Had so many compliments on my shoes too. A teacher litteraly stopped right in the middle of the hallway to tell me she LOVED my shoes. Hadn't ever had classes from her, haha.




Wore this to school. Yes, I really did. Ha!



This is what a princess should look like...

Kate was GORGEOUS. I want to look like her so bad, haha.


The best kiss ever...

was not Will & Kate's. Sorry, thought it was pure romance. But it wasn't the best royal wedding kiss ever. We still own that right with this lovely couple:


I cannot put it up in my blog, so go see it. True love right there!


Ps. For those of you that didn't know. That is our Prince Willem Alexander and our princess Maxima. Our future king and queen ;)
