You guys! We survived winter, who’d have thought! — OK, so technically it’s still a few weeks until spring is official, but I’ve got a spring in my step and I am loving the early-spring blooms! March is going to be good.
Let’s look back onto February… the shortest month sure felt like the longest. Loads has happened, so let’s get cracking!
We started February with a full weekend of snow, heaps and heaps of snow for modern-time Dutch standards. It was cold and magnificent! Then there was loads of the usual work, long days with early evenings.
Although, I really tried to make something of Feb. — I went to see La La Land with a friend. That was so worth it. Man alive, I loved La La Land so much, Hazel Hayes made a video which described one of the reasons I love this movie so much.
February actually got by fairly uneventful… until the last bit. You see, I was planning a full-time move back to The Hague but with work being in Utrecht it was bit…well, terribly inconvenient. So who’d have thought that within a week I got myself a new job in The Hague! The city by the sea… I am excited and terrified and already started the training.
Let me explain, I resigned at the customer service desk and now am venturing more into IT. Something I’ve been terrified in doing for forever. But I need to stop half-assing things and start doing things with the entirety of my ass. Either way, I’m happy February is over.
The monthly update:
Read: My Not So Perfect Life (Sophie Kinsella) and Buffering (Hannah Hart) 4/14

Made: I don’t really remember (fail!)
Quote for this month:
“Every time you see someone’s bright-and-shiny, remember: They have their own crappy truths too. Of course they do. And every time you see your own crappy truth and feel despair and think, ‘Is this my life?’, remember: It’s not. Everyone’s got a bright-and-shiny, even if it’s hard to find sometimes.” – Sophie Kinsella (My Not So Perfect Life)
And here’s what I think is February-exclusive:
- It’s the shortest month
- Spring is finally, slowly getting into view
- Still… snow — if you’re lucky
So what am I looking forward to in March?
- Spring Forward: summertime is starting, which means longer days!
- Actual Spring: birds tweeting, tiny animals are born, blooms blooming, grass growing!
- 5th of March: wedding anniversary of my parents = family get-together (Yes, I know, the time this post goes up it’s been the 5th already — who cares)
