Your (not so serious) Horoscope for spring 2018

Hola everyone!

Last night I had an epiphany. Late at night I was watching this terrible fortune-telling programme —and I actually may not have told you all— but it’s possible that I might have a sixth sense.
So in this programme, people call to have their near future get foretold. This particular bright woman that they’d call would not only let them speak with passed away persons, but also give them some sort of vague prediction for what’s in store for them in the future based on their star signs. And I swear to you, by the end of the show, 90 per cent of what she was predicting, I was thinking the exact same thing. It’s almost like these shows are total bullshit. Huh.  🤔
Anyway, I figured I might as well try it for you, so today I’m going to predict your futures based on your star signs! Here we go, hope you enjoy! Continue reading “Your (not so serious) Horoscope for spring 2018”

Music #5: ☼Sol Pereyra☼

Hola everyone!

Today has been one of those days. It’s still super cold outside and I’ve had a lot of school-related work to do. One of the things that I like to on those days is working on my laptop with warm tea and put my headphones on, listening to Spotify. So today I was working when this artist suddenly played on my phone. I had forgotten about her, but she inspired me to write this post today nevertheless.
She’s actually one of the few non-English musicians that I like to listen to, and—even if you don’t speak Spanish—  is definitely worth the listen.
Without further ado, featured today: ☼Sol Pereyra☼ Continue reading “Music #5: ☼Sol Pereyra☼”


I had a one way ticket to a place where all the demons go
Where the wind don’t change
And nothing in the ground can ever grow
No hope, just lies
And you’re taught to cry into your pillow
But I survived.

I’m still breathing
I’m alive. Continue reading “Alive”

Starting from scratch

One week and one day ago I was called by an unknown number. It was still early in the morning and I wasn’t fully awake. When I picked up, it was silent on the phone. I figured it was probably nothing and I went back to sleeping. A little while later I was called again– by an anonimous number this time. I declined because I thought it was some kind of prank and I really wanted to get some sleep. Five minutes later however, I was called again, this time by my mother. I picked up the phone. “Bryan,” she said clearly in distress “your dad is not doing well.” Continue reading “Starting from scratch”

How it’s like being black in the Netherlands

*I am fully aware that this is a very senstive issue, especially in these times where heated discussions about everything are everywhere, with everyone. This piece is a representation of my own opinions, it is in no way the truth. I am not purposefully trying to offend or attack anyone. It is something I am still discovering for myself, so consider this more of a personal journal. * Continue reading “How it’s like being black in the Netherlands”
