Hi, pleased to meet you!
Thank you for stumbling upon my personal blog. 00:23am [twenty-three am] is mainly intended for my own recollection, though I like the idea of sharing things with friends, family and lovely people on the internet. As a rather forgetful and nostalgic person, I made this blog about the things that make me feel the feels. But it also gives me a platform to share my own adventures through amateurish photography. I’d like to think that this blog is my love letter to life.
You can call me Louise, which is a pseudonym because I like being a bit mysterious whenever I can. I’m a travel enthusiast, art aficionado and fan of food. During uni I studied Cultural Heritage and it has been my soft spot ever since. I’m intrigued by cultural differences, aesthetics and things that other people would probably call “old junk”. Japan has captured my heart and I am forever dreaming of going back. One day however, I’ll own a country house in France and open it up to receive guests from all over the world.
I am a believer, prone to negative thinking, eager to learn about anything and everything and an INFJ with growing pains. Most of the time I feel a little lost in life. Currently I’m in the midst of actively creating a life I think I love. You could say I’m a bit of a geek and friends know me as a bit of a weirdo, but I’m also a firm supporter of being your own person nonetheless. You can always make me excited to go for a gin and tonic, or carrot cake, or sukiyaki — oh, who am I kidding… any food except the spicy stuff. So if you’re ever in the Amsterdam or The Hague area: don’t be shy, even though I am. :)
Every photo on this website is mine, unless otherwise stated. If you’d like to use anything, I’d very much appreciate it if you’d drop me a line. Please do link back at me at all times.
