Day 363 – Scared

I don't like to admit it, but I am scared for lots of things. Scared to get seriously sick. Scared to share. Scared to fail. Scared that I am not good enough. Scared of what will happen next. Scared of being lonely. Scared of lossing people I love. Scared to quit.  This blog. It's almost... Continue Reading →

Day 361 – Midway point

I still remember the first week I was here in Uganda. Hosted by a wonderful family. Felt at home pretty quickly. Sat on the same couch as I am sitting on now to eat my first home-cooked meal. 6 months in Uganda already. Halfway through my year as trainee PGA with ZOA. Time flies. It... Continue Reading →

Dag 358 – Einde in zicht

Day 356 – Colour my world

Protests in downtown Kampala yesterday. Tear gas. Police. Demonstrations. Political unrest is not uncommon in this part of the world. Yet I don't really notice. It could just as well be on the other side of the world. This city is big and I don't really know about these political tensions. I don't have a... Continue Reading →

Day 353 – PJs and soup

One of my favourite moments of the day. Curling up on the couch with a bowl of soup made from fresh veggies and in my PJs. 'Huismus' is the word for it in Dutch. Yesterday I wrote about everyday days. Because not everything and not every day have to be spectacular. And you know, I... Continue Reading →

Day 352 – The every day days

It just kicked in. How is it 18 September already? Time flies. Sometimes it feels like days are flying by like frames of a movie scene. If I could choose, I would love to be in a drama, a bit of suspense, romance, some fascinating character and an exciting plot would definitely satisfy me. But the... Continue Reading →
