oh april

Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old Time is still a-flying;
And this same flower that smiles to-day,
To-morrow will be dying.

Oh April, how you made it feel like summer.

Het is een onwijs gek idee dat ik aan het begin van de maand nog in Keulen zat. Gek hoe alles in een maand tijd zo kan veranderen. Maar wat hier wel het mooie van is, is dat ik de tripjes en vakanties die ik heb kunnen maken nu meer begin te waarderen. Nu alles wordt afgelast zie ik in hoe bijzonder het is om wel die uitstapjes te kunnen doen.
Thuisblijven is voor een huismus zoals ik geen grote opgave. Wel vind ik het eng en schokkend en bijzonder hoe veel impact dit alles uitoefent op de wereld en op mijn wereldje. Ik kan het niet goed onder woorden brengen. Maar vooralsnog was maart een maand om op terug te blikken. En daarom een kleine notitie over mijn maart in deze post 🙂

what i did on christmas break

First of all, happy new year! I hope you all had a lovely first two weeks (already!) of the year 2020. I certainly did, but last monday the uni-life kind of exploded in my face and I was reminded of the fact how much I still needed to do before the end of the week. But everything went well and I’m feeling this great energy to start this new year!
Over the two weeks of my holiday I took a few snaps of what I was doing & loving. I always love to read weeklogs, but if I were to do them they wouldn’t be very interesting. (“So… I went to school. Again.”) That’s why this recap could be a bit more interesting, since I had the time to do some things else than school 😉
