I am a music loving language nut who teaches at a college in Amsterdam at the department for education. I teach aspiring English teachers about linguistics, sociolinguistics and English language skills. I graduated for the Research Master in Communication Sciences from Tilburg University in 2013 and hold an MA in English Language and Literature as well as an MA in English language education.
My main hobbies are dancing, going to the gym (I mainly do yoga and cardio type classes), blogging, shopping (clothes, shoes, CDs, make up, books, gadgets), cooking, reading, watching TV series & movies, and traveling. I listen to more music than the average human being. Wherever I am, it is likely that I am listening to music. I love going to live concerts and I love discovering new bands, artists and music. Be it old or new, if the music is unknown to me, I love finding it, listening to it and going to a show if possible.
I love to learn new things. Whether it’s through school, every day life or the people I meet: I have a hunger for knowledge on a wide variety of subjects. I don’t drive and use public transportation to get around, or I simply walk. I love hanging out with friends and family. I like to visit museums, especially exhibitions on modern art and fashion. But I am also a homebody. I love being at home, cuddled up on the couch with a big mug of my favorite tea. It’s when I am by myself that I fully recharge my battery and get the energy to live this thing called life.
I blog about all of my different interests, but some more than others. From which songs I dig most, to beauty product reviews, to an overview what I have been eating, to outfit posts: I blog about anything that pops into my head. There is no guideline to this blog other than me and whatever tickles my fancy. One week it can be nail polish, another it’s books, movies, or a shoplog with the occasional personal update thrown in the mix.
All that rests is wishing you an enjoyable and interesting read! Feel free to browse around and leave a comment. If you have any questions feel free to contact me. My contact information can be found under the contact tab.
