It's December, which is my favourite time of the month. It's December, which means it's time to dream of snow, to dream of Christmas and Santa visiting. It used to be a very special time, I used to get actual visits from Santa, and actual snow. But times change, and so do I. The past two years have been crazy, surreal and incredibly difficult. Being a teacher in the midst of a pandemic, where we constantly swing from home-teaching to classroom-teaching, where students aren't well has been the hardest job I've ever had to do. Supporting students online is so much harder, and often, it's not enough. I see students slip, and there is nothing I can do. But aside from that, being a human in the midst of a pandemic hasn't been easy either. I've struggled, and I still do. I'm exhausted, and I am scared. I am done with the uncertainties we're constantly facing, and I hate that, due to my health, I am constantly at risk and I've had to isolate myself and keep my distance from everyone for the
Hi there, my lovelies :heart: I hope you've all been doing well, and I truly hope you've all had a wonderful holiday season. I've once again been a bit on and off with my activity on DA, and to be honest, I am not entirely sure if that is something that will change in the foreseeable future. Offline life has been incredibly busy the last several months, and now that we're in the middle of February, I am finally starting to get some breathing room, which is very nice, and most of all; much-needed. I think I told you guys back in November (or somewhere along those lines) how busy I was with uni-stuff and teaching. I've been simultaneously working on my Bachelor's degree for English language, my Master's degree for English Language Teaching and next to that, I was also teaching the most delightful students how to use and understand English. I am still doing all that- minus the teaching. That was a temporary thing, and while it was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed my time there, I am
Bye, 2020! Hello, 2021!
As we say goodbye to 2020, we stand at the beginning of a brand new chapter. While I am glad to make the symbolic new start, I also need to remind myself that a new year won't magically fix everything that is going on in the world. In this journal, I plan on having a look at 2020, and try to focus on some good things! They will be in no particular order, simply in order of what pops into my head. I released the first book in the Bubs' Adventures series After a few years of taking photos of Bubs, this year I finally achieved something I've been wanting to do for a long time: I wrote and illustrated a books about one of Bubs' Adventures. I love that I was able to share some of his adventures with you this year in both in written form. If you haven't yet, and you want to, you can get the book through one of the channels on my website. We celebrated one year of @GuidingLightProject This year, my dear friend @LadyLincoln and I got to celebrate the one year anniversary of
I'm still alive!
Hi guys, As I am writing this journal I am thinking of how long it's been since I've spoken to many of you. And you now, that does suck. Because I love hanging out with you all and talking to you, but lately, I just haven't had the time or energy to be online a whole lot. I have a lot going on these days. I'm back to teaching, back in uni and aside from that I'm also working on my Master's degree in English Language Teaching. Next to that, I'm working on the next book in Bubs' Adventures series, and I have plenty more things to do. This leaves little time to hang out online, unfortunately, but it also makes me cherish the time I get to spend with you even more. I have been posting some things that have kept me busy these days, though. A little while ago I posted a wedding photo I took of some of my close friends who married last month. I also shared the cover to the first book in the Bubs' Adventures series, which is out and for sale by the way! You can click on either to full
