Day 224 – Lazy saturdays

I like to be productive. Always doing something or planning the next thing. You can call that hard-working, but it also has a bit of perfectionism to it. That's why I am trying to teach myself to not plan stuff too much in advance sometimes. Like this weekend. I knew this was one of the... Continue Reading →

Afterwards I had to do three interviews for Camp Rising Sun. All in all, a pretty full day. In between I needed a moment to do nothing, for a long bath and watching a nature documentary. As I was listen to David Attenborough, I realised that I had absolutely no interest in writing. So I questioned myself: why do I commit to writing?

I came to the conclusion that even though I accepted a challenge to write every single day, I realised that forcing myself into it, is not going to be helpful to anyone. The only thing I wanted last night was to relax.

Day 118 – Scared to commit

Every age group gets a specific name. A generation X has this and this characteristic. A millennial will do this and never say that. Even though I don't really like generalisations, there are so characteristics I really recognize in myself. Of course you can judge any type of study (typically millennial behaviour again), but there I do see a point in trying to understand the minds and hearts of a new generation.
