1. Ik denk dat het liefde was by Kathleen Vereecken
Or in English: I think it was love. This book is the best book I’ve read in a long long time. It takes place in France, 1746. I used to hate books that took place in another century – probably because I’m still a teenager, haha – but this book changed my vision. You may ask me why I even started reading it if I hate those kind of books. Well, it was a present. My godmother gave it to me, and I wanted to try something different. I have to say, I’m so glad I did. Kathleen Vereecken is a wonderful writer and she did an amazing job writing this book.
Maybe I’m the only one who wants her life to be as perfect as it can be. I don’t think so. I don’t want my life to be perfect like ‘barbie’-perfect, but I want to get control of what happens. I’ve always been that kind of girl. I hate saying perfect, I mean, I want my life to go back on the rails after a crappy period. So, I want to show you what I do when I’ve been trough a hard period.
Last christmas holiday I went skiing in France. We drove 10 hours. A few days before we left, I made a list of songs I wanted to put on my ipod. Well actually I just went to Spotify and I downloaded every song of the Indie top 100 list and the Sunday afternoon list. Those 2 lists are the ones I’ve listened to the most, the last few weeks. That didn’t mean that I knew all of the songs. I think I knew 10 of the 150 songs I wrote down. I like listening to new music. I think there was like 11 hours of music on my ipod. So, enough for the whole trip.
I have been doubting for a while now about my style. Highschool is absolutely not the perfect place to find your style if you are like me, shy. Why not? Because of the immense pressure. A few years ago I went to a school where your clothes decided your social position. I had to shop what others wore or I was fucked – Yeah, I just said fucked.
