The first month of 2013 went fast. Or should I say that I didn’t have much time. Life still goes on.

While packing my personal stuff, I discovered in a small notebook some poems. I probably wrote those poems when I was in love or brokenhearted. It’s so high school material. But I kept them. I have an own diary in which I write the poems or notes when I want to express something. So my ‘newly discovered’ poems are now in my personal diary.

While going trough the diaries, I read my poems again. I think I started writing these poems when I’s in the 2nd year of high school.  But I’ve never been that artistic with words. No rhymes for me. Bad at it. But, I let the pen go when my heart is filled with emotions.

Because the diary is now in the box, I can’t share one of my poems today. But I am going to share a love poem which is close to my heart. Btw, it’s a Shakespearean Love Sonnet:

O Mistress mine

              O Mistress mine, where are you roaming?

O, stay and hear; your true love’s coming,

That can sing both high and low:

Trip no further, pretty sweeting;

Journeys end in lovers meeting,

Every wise man’s son doth know.

What is love? ‘Tis not hereafter;

Present mirth hath present laughter;

What’s to come is still unsure:

In delay there lies not plenty;

Then, come kiss me, sweet and twenty,

Youth’s a stuff will not endure.



Getting ready

22 Oct


A new year, 2013, is not so far anymore. Just three months left for the new year.  I already started to think about my New Year intends…I think that year is going to be my Act of year or year of ACTION! Many things are going to happen in  2013.

First of all, on my 26th birthday, It will be one year of working as a teacher. Quite special for me, because in my opinion, it’s not an easy job. During this year, I’ve experienced so many things and faced many problems. But I must say that I’m lucky to have pleasant and helpful colleagues and the rest of the school team. It’s always a pleasure to have a good conversation. Since I need to help with another subject, Dutch, in three classes (now, two classes), it is not always easy to prepare for two subjects in the little time I have. Also, there were some unpleasant moments with the pupils that have affected me emotionally. Sometimes I could not easily handle the situation, because things were new for me. And that’s why I’m saying that for so far the school has been a learning experience for me.

And then, there were some ups and downs in the personal life. But you learn from it. Of the two cases that touched me the most, I’ve learned to be patient. It is sometimes necessary to let things leave as they are. And to acquiesce in the situation as it could not be otherwise. Should I say: go with the flow? Not that I’m happy with these changes, but we should accept it. What is yours, will come back.

2013 will be the year for changes, as I said before. Moving to a new place, not my kinda place, but I’m sure a more peaceful place with more spaces (I’m not talking about privacy) and another environment. But I’m going to miss this neighbourhood….Image

2013 will be the year, if all goes well, of welcoming a new member in the family.

2013 will be the year in which I’ll have a bigger wardrobe..(oh, yes!)

2013 will be the year in which I’m going to cook more.Hopefully…not sure…

2013 will be the year in which I’ll take Spanish lessons.

That’s all what I’ve thought about for so far. More will come!

But first, I’m getting ready for the month of many celebrations: December!!! And for 21.12.12Image

In Dutch we have a saying: “Ook al is de leugen zo snel, de waarheid achterhaalt het wel! (Though the lie’s so fast, the truth will overtake it at the end)”



On This Day

13 May


They say…

… That mothers are their daughter’s rolemodel

Yes, it’s true, you are my own great rolemodel

You’re the strongest person on earth I’ve ever known

You can face any difficulty

You’re a multitasker

And you spread love all the time

You pray for everyone in need

… That one good mother is worth a hundred schoolmasters

Yes, that’s also true, because you’re the best teacher I’d ever have

Since the day I was born

You taught me everything to become a good human being

You taught me eating with the spoon, brushing my teeth, combing my hair

You taught me counting on my fingers

You taught me the a,b,c,d,….

You taught me writing the essential letters

You taught me writing my own name

And also how to draw

…She’s her daughter’s best friend

You’re not only my best friend, but also the greatest inspiration, advisor, well-wisher,

And someone that could sacrifice everything anytime for her family

… A daughter is one of the most beautiful gifts this world has to give

But I say that a mother’s the most beautiful gift, the greatest blessing, one could have in her life

And someday, I want to become a MOM like you! ❤
