About Me

I'm 34 years old, living with my boyfriend, working as a writer at an University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands. In my spare time I work as a music journalist, writing reviews of concerts. Music is my first love. As is writing, I follow a course of writing short stories. I love to walk and travel, but don’t go overseas often. Europe is beautiful and too much to see.


Movies

  • Back To The Future
  • Donnie Darko
  • Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
  • Garden State
  • The Lego Movie
  • Hunt for the Wilderpeople
  • I watch 200 movies a year. I love movies.

  • Writing material (pens, pencils and more)
  • Old skool Volkswagen van or fiat 500

  • Ballet
  • B&W with people
  • Illustrated Christmas Cards
  • Birthday cards

Fantasy cards, religious postcards, cards with planes and ships and tourist cards arent my favorite, but if they are the only things you've got, its fine. I like the ones with nature or maps the best :)

Notes
