Brief aan de NMBS

Posted in Personal / Tags , ,

Lieve vrienden van de Belgische spoorwegen. Ik weet dat jullie het druk hebben met het inplannen van jullie stakingen zodat jullie eens een midweek kunnen nemen of wat verlengde weekends, maar bij deze toch een kleine oproep.

Ik neem nogal regelmatig de trein op de lijn 53A, Mechelen-Haacht-Leuven en zou jullie graag een paar tips meegeven.

Why it’s okay to start hating yourself about now

Posted in Personal / Tags ,

Some call it being brave, others call it a hobby, most call it crazy. We know it as National Novel Writing Month.

Fresh out of last year’s victory, I was going for another clear win this year. Unfethered by, you know, having a full time day job, I figured reaching 1500 words every day would be a cake-walk. Sometimes, however, I am so wrong that I can’t even use the whole ‘I’m blond excuse.’

You better do as we ask or else… a different approach to the gay marriage debate

If you happen to be one of the lucky, o I don’t know, three dozen or so who received an email from me yesterday with a link to a video clip, you’ll probably now it by now. If not, here is the gist of it.

That masterpiece that can rival all others and ensures yourself a place in all the history books and all talkshows from now until your death – at which time the price of your books and manuscripts will skyrocket, thus ensuring a cosy live-style for your children and grandchildren. Well, you are in luck, this November you can make your dreams come true with NaNoWriMo or National Novel Writing Month.

Project Vancouver 2010

Posted in Personal / Tags , ,

If you know me in any sort of real life way, you should know that in 2009-2010 I spend an amazing year at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. During that time I regularly, or not so regularly, wrote stories about Vancouver life on my blog.

Unfortunately, after coming home and going on with my life, I may have forgotten about the blog. Not only that, because the account was linked to my student account, it was closed down upon graduating, leaving me empty handed. Until Now.
