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.

I don't really like * Greetingcards / handmade cards (not because I don't live receiving them, but I have no way of storing them. So I have to throw them out after a while, which is sad :() * Brown and orange * Sticky notes (just because I have too many lol)


  • Bare in mind: in the Netherlands mailboxes get emptied at monday, tuesday, wednesday, thursday and friday (so things I post on friday evening or Saturday, could receive a postmark of monday or even Tuesday).
  • Second: our mail gets delivered on tuesday till saturday, nothing on sunday and monday.
  • Third: I mostly rate on sundays.
