My Experiences with Getting Off The Birth Control Pill

About 11 years ago, when I was about 12 years old, I started taking the birth control pill. My doctor recommended it to me and my mom, while we were at her practice. She recommended it because I had quite severe acne and that made me very unhappy. After some years the acne went away but I stuck with the pill as a contraceptive. In December 2021, last year, I started doubting it. Was the pill still right for me? I decided to test it and quit taking it. Today I’ll tell you about my experiences with getting of the birth control pill.

Mainstream news in The Netherlands is depressing. It has to be shocking, sensational and topical. This way news gets negative and people feel like the world around them is changing for the worse.

The 9 Planetary Boundaries

The past 3 years I have followed a pre-master in Earth and Economy and a master in Environment and Resource Management. And up until now, I mostly wrote about sustainability and an eco-positive lifestyle in the personal sphere, as I believe that we all have a share making the earth a happy place for everybody. However, as I gained my master in science, I feel like I can also share more about sustainability on a global level. Today I am starting with the ultimate base, the 9 planetary boundaries.

Life Update: I got my Master of Science!

This past February I started my thesis. I was very nervous about it, because when I wrote my thesis for my bachelor Facility Management I failed the first attempt. This time it went very smooth, a little too smooth sometimes, because that’s what I experienced during my bachelor too. So I got worried. But on July 13th 2022 I got the news that I passed my thesis. And so I have a major life update: I got my master of science!

Why neoliberalism does not work

Neoliberalism, also called free-market capitalism. Ever since communism has fallen in the 80s and 90s, there has been only capitalism. It has caused a lot of problems, but it has also done some good things for humanity. I don’t know whether I am against capitalism or neoliberalism (yet), since I don’t know much about the alternatives (but maybe I will in the future). But I do know that neoliberalism does not work, here’s why.

7 Charities to Support Nature

Donating money to charities is something I think everybody who has the resources should do. For me personally, I live at least eco-neutral, meaning that I live within the boundaries of the planet. However, eco-neutral is only the base**. I want to live eco-positive. I want to actually contribute something to make this world a better place. You can do that in different ways. A relatively easy way is by donating money. But which charities actually contribute to a better world? In this post I want to elaborate on research I did to find out. Here are 7 charities to support nature.
