T’es la moustache de mon Trotski

And just like that, it's Spring! So now I feel like I should be outside constantly, doing things, enjoying the sunny weather while it lasts. Tomorrow I'm going to get my ears pierced for the first time (yes, at the ripe old age of eighteen), and I'm quite nervous!

Voor de Nederlandstaligen onder ons: er staat een schrijfsel van mij op VPRO Dorst. Leesleeslees!

I think there's a certain charm in how random objects strewn across a room can somehow seem to form still lifes, when photographed. While there's not always an apparent reason for these things to be where they are, they still form a unity once you capture them in an image. Leave it to the human brain to always try and create a whole out of unrelated pieces. I went about my room to photograph all of my collections of random stuff.

facing a dying nation of moving paper fantasy, listening to the new told lies

hair - let the sunshine in

Today was a pretty good day. Me and Lisa (she has just started a new blog! here) snuck out of the most boring class EVER to have lunch. The sun was shining (though it's still so cold that I constantly feel like my face is being bitten off when I go outside), I voted for the first time ever, and I wore my new jeans. Let me just make this clear -  I hate jeans. I hate how they sag off your butt, how they never seem to fit properly, how they always seem to get wider no matter how tiny you buy them, how they're always too small in some places and too big in others. But I instantly fell in love with these when I saw them in Monki. They're so retro, they fit perfectly because of the high waistline, and they don't make my legs feel like a pair of sausages.
