Weeks without blogging.

Recently I’ve been very sporadic with blog posts and its not for a lack of material to blog about, I have material coming out my ears at the moment, it has, in sorrowful fact, been simply that I have had so much to do lately that I have been averaging 4.7 hours of sleep a … Continue reading

Moving Forward.

Some times when faced with adversity, moving forward seems like the last thing you can do. When things get tough as humans are usually more inclined to run and hide, moving backwards rather than forwards. And the worst thing about that feeling is that it’s usually just before you are about to succeed. So far in my … Continue reading

Feeststol and Glühwein

I’ve not written a blog post in a few days, mainly because there has been little to talk about and I don’t want to be posting “insightful commentaries” all the time. It’s that time of year again when new and experienced expats tend to feel like a roller-coaster of emotions and it’s no different for my husband and I despite … Continue reading

So here’s what I did, in an effort to find out if we’re allowed to work before Mid-December, I called the Tax office (belastingdienst … Continue reading

Words to Rise Above

Please recognize that you and only you know what is right for you. Your accomplishments and your mistakes are … Continue reading

The problem with not speaking dutch…

Today was heartbreaking. While paying for my shopping I was approached by a small child, he must have been only 6. I have no idea where his parents were, but he made a heartfelt plea for something, he looked so sweet. For all I know he could’ve been asking for an apple, a biscuit, or simply … Continue reading

This is the story of yet another British Expat.

One day to go, and then my partner and I will be thrown into expatriate life. It’s not by choice, the British Gov’t has decided that because I insist on studying I have no right to love the person that I love. You see I’m married to a foreigner. One of those terrible, migrants who … Continue reading
