Weekly diary #100: waiting for my thesis result

Hi there! Welcome back into my weekly diary, number 100! I can’t believe I’ve been doing this for one-hundred weeks! I enjoy it (and I hope you do too) and so I’m planning to continue this for a while! In this weekly diary I want to show you what an eco-positive lifestyle looks like on a daily basis. The past week I got back to the gym, mended some clothes and waited for my thesis result. Want to read along? Lees “Weekly diary #100: waiting for my thesis result” verder

Traveling to Albufeira by train: the return

This post is a follow-up from the post from last week. I’ve made the decision to ditch the plane because it’s not sustainable at all. Last week I shared the outward journey by train from Haarlem to Albufeira. Overall conclusion: easier than expected. This week I’ll share my return. I went from our apartment in Albufeira to Weesp in The Netherlands. So, how did that go? Lees “Traveling to Albufeira by train: the return” verder

Documentary about positive impact: Life in the Doghouse

It’s holiday season and that means reading a lot of books and watching documentaries for me personally. I love both! Last week I shared a book so today it is time for a documentary I think you should see. This one is one that will make you smile from ear to ear, it’s mostly positive! It’s about a dream life I think, a life in which others are helped and I think that’s the most beautiful and meaningful life. I’ll tell you more about Life in the Doghouse.

Book about minimalism: Minimalism

Yes, the cover of this book tells you exactly what to expect. This book is about minimalism. The core of minimalism really. It’s quite a short book I’d say, which allignes exactly with their message: focus on the important things. This book is written by Ryan Nicodemus and Joshua Fields Millburn, also known as the Minimalists. I’ve written a post before about them before, about their documentary and podcast. Back then I hadn’t read their book but now I did and I needed to share it with you. This book is amazing!
