I've applied for a job today. It's a job serving coffee in a building that's shared by the local library, the local archives and a local inkt pressing (?) workshop. I'm pretty stoked, even though I don't know if they'll take me - there are more applicants. But the talk went very well, I was able to be myself and that's what matters. But the company I've applied for also hosts a small movie festival, a stand-up comedy show and some catering services. So that's a new, fun environment to be … [Read more...] about Applying For a Job
Somebody asked me today if I am addicted to certain substances. That's a kind of a personal question. Not many people would answer that honestly, I think. Addiction is a hard topic to talk about and there are a lot of things you can be addicted to. I, for one, think people can be addicted to make-up. What's the point of wearing make-up, anyway?

Well, it depends on the circumstances. Being nuanced is important. If you think in extremes, or in black and white, you're prone to make thinking mistakes. There are so many things happening in the world that you can't really think in black and white. There are so many colors to choose from!

Think about your morning this morning. How did you feel when you woke up? Did you have trouble waking up? Or is waking up easy to you? I hear a lot of people say: Oh man, I can't get up every morning. Waking up is the hardest thing EVER! Why do they say that? Is it because they have no motivation to get up? Is it because their work lives are boring? Those might be some reasons. But everybody wants to make the most of their day, so how come? Any work you do can be interesting, it just takes a … [Read more...] about Why eating 5 – 7 pieces of fruit is something you should do every morning.
