The wonderful world of Rene Descartes


When I was 14 years old, I was sitting in a classroom listening to some teacher rambling on a Dutch past tense and somethign rather interesting caught my eye. There was this big poster saying “Corgito ergo sum”. I knew a little latin, but my attention was moslty caught by football at that time. Let’s be honest, it still is. It was a quote by the philosopher Rene Descartes and I knew nothing about the man, except that he sounds like someone who would make cards. 10 years later I would be confronted with the blessing that’s called philosophy and I finally got to know Descartes.  Bekijk bericht


5 football apps & websites to analyse matches

I’m really into football and I love following it as much as I can. I used to watch a lot on the television and then went to a lot of football matches myself over the past few years, because I enjoyed the overall atmosphere in the stadiums and grounds. Now I find myself interested in different things like tactics, analyses and formations. So that’s why I listed my top 5 apps and/or websites I use to make an analysis. Bekijk bericht


Dealing with the big, black dog

I used to talk a lot more about my mental health and mental health in general on this blog. For various reasons I now talk about it less, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t important to me anymore. If anything, it means more to me and perhaps that’s why I’ve taken that conscious desicion to talk less about it. However, I felt that I should write about this certain topic again, because there have been a few things on my mind about it. Bekijk bericht


My fascination for Cymraeg

Languages are actually great. It’s true that sometimes they give us difficulties, because there are so many of them. But I do think it’s great that there’s such a variety of languages on this globe we call planet earth. We learn about different languages in school and/or from our families and friends, but some languages are on another level. This is where I get really interested in languages and linguistics. When it’s out of the ordinary. I guess that’s why I’ve been and am so attracted to the Welsh language
Cymraeg. Bekijk bericht


Life update: I moved to Rotterdam

We’re halfway through September and I’ve not blogged yet this month. I’m terrible at blogging these days, but I’ve also been quite busy to be honest. All this has to do with the fact that I’ve moved to Rotterdam and it has been awesome so far. Bekijk bericht
