Weekly diary #7

Hi, great that you’re back to read this weekly diary again! Here’s weekly diary #7.


My intentions to get up at 8 AM and work out have faded a little the past few weeks. And so I got back on track again. I also had to work straight after and so I felt fresh at work. They say you feel better in general when you exercise regularly and I truly believe that. I feel more energized. After work I packed my bags, I’m going to Mysteryland!


At 6 AM the alarm ran and jee, that’s early. But it was for something exciting, I was going to the Mysteryland Festival in Hoofddorp (in The Netherlands). It’s about 3 hours by public transportation. I had to be there at 10 AM because I am volunteering at the festival this year. I knew what to expect because I also did it last year! Today the plan was to set up my tent, welcome the first camping guests and party at night!


Camping at a festival isn’t really my thing this way. I must tell you: never ever buy an inflatable pillow. It seems convenient, but don’t do it, I speak from a place of experience. I woke up fresh, #not. As a volunteer, you get free access to the festival and camping for 3 days. In return you work a 3-hour-shifts on Friday and 6-hour-shifts on Saturday and Sunday. I was on the Green Team, which means that we keep the festival clean. But we are mostly there to bring across a message: please recycle your waste and don’t throw it onto the ground! It suits me just right.


A new day, a new shift and so a new party. Lovely! The weather was amazing this past weekend too. By the way, you get styled just before your shifts too, which is amazing. Then you’re really a part of the Green Team! Today my boyfriend and some friends also came over to the festival too. After my shifts I had a great time with them. ‘Vunzige deuntjes’ was my favorite stage! Did you know that Mysteryland is one of the most sustainable festivals? They even won prices.

Mysteryland is over and I’m going back home. With some help I managed to pack up my tent again (which I borrowed from a friend). That was a real challenge! When I arrived at the train station my train was delayed. On the app it said that I therefore couldn’t make my transit. But, I don’t give up that easily! I felt like Usain Bolt haha, and I did make it! Luckily, because I had to work in Enschede. After work I went out to eat some sushi with friends, I loved it! Sushi is my absolute favorite food.

Another business meeting! Currently, I am working on a business plan, because I want to become an entrepreneur. I had some questions and so this meeting was great. I feel good, I’m almost there! Afterwards I went to Het Rutbeek in Enschede, a lake, where we swam and spend some time in the sun. I love these summer days! Then it was time for work again. After work I had another goodbye event, just like last week. A friend of mine is moving to Groningen. For me that isn’t much fun. The party was fun though. In the middle of the night I picked up my boyfriend from the train station, he is coming over.


A day off! Sleeping longer! Today I could get the day off because I do have to work the rest of the week. I went into the city center to the Broodbode (a sandwich bar). That’s because I had never been there and so we went to try it out. I had a lovely vegan salad and smoothie. At first I was a bit scared because it was a spinach smoothie. A while back I tried a carrot juice at Bagels & Beans and I didn’t like that at all. But this smoothie was amazing! Probably because it was a smoothie with multiple things and not just a juice. I ordered it without a straw and they didn’t give me one, great! Besides the napkin, a zero waste lunch.

Yours sincerely,
