I’ve been making a lot of online content the past few years, but how well do you guys know me? I think you all know I am from the Netherlands, but I don’t talk a lot about other things. So I decided to do a random Q&A. In this post (and video) I am going to answer 10 of them.
Get to know me a little bit better
What are your favourite shows on Netflix at this moment?
I don’t watch a lot of Netflix at this moment, I feel like there is nothing new for me right now. So I am now rewatching all of the Friends episodes on Netflix. But I am excited about the new seasons of my favourite shows. So right now, I am still following a lot of Netflix shows like Outer Banks, Bridgerton, Sex education, Virgin river, Sweet Magnolias, Derry girls and Sweet tooth, Oh and I can’t wait for the last season of Stranger Things too. I am probably forgetting something but I think these are my favourites.
What is your favourite season?
My favourite season is autumn or spring because it is never too hot and never too cold during those seasons. The temperature is perfect. I like spring because the sun starts to shine and it is getting warmer again after a cold winter. And I like autumn because it is just a very cosy season. I really look forward to reading all day while it storming outside.
How does your perfect summer day look like?
I wake up in the morning, have breakfast outside and just enjoy the moment. In the morning it is so quiet outside and I really enjoy that moment of the day. Then I would do something alone or with friends, maybe window shopping or have a picnic at the park. Just very chill. I would probably read something too. I would get ice cream and at the end of the day, if I would live close to the beach, I would take a long beach walk and just enjoy the summer evenings.
Which sport do you like?
I do work-outs sometimes, but I mostly just watch sports on tv. I loved to watch the Olympics and going to watch the Paralympics too when I have time for it. I like to watch football, hockey and tennis. Those are my three favourite sports to watch on tv. And hopefully, I will find the opportunity to go to a game very soon. I have to make time for it.
What other languages do you speak?
I am Dutch, so I also speak Dutch. In high school, I also learned English, French and German. I dropped German as soon it was possible because I was really bad at it. I still use English daily as you can see and I am still improving it. My French is not that good anymore but I want to improve it very soon. But I also want to learn Spanish and/or Italian. Those languages are so beautiful too.
What song/artists do you love the most at the moment?
I am not sure if I have a favourite song at this moment. But there are a few artists I love to listen to. I really like Dermot Kennedy’s songs a lot. I also like to listen to Billie Eilish, Sigrid and I also like the last two albums by Taylor Swift (evermore and Folklore). And most of the time, I just use my Spotify let decide what I am listening to. But this way I discover new artists and I really like that.
What movie do you like the most?
I think Pride and Prejudice is my favourite movie. But in general, I like to watch all kinds of movies but mostly those romantic movies. Most of the time they are not award-winning material, but I honestly don’t care. I just watch movies for fun. I like to have a movie night now and then and just watch movies on Netflix all night.
How many books do you read per week?
I set my Goodreads challenge on 100 books this year. Right now, I have read 34 or maybe 35 books. I still have many to go. But it is not impossible yet. So right now I am aiming to read 3 or 4 books every single week. Normally I would read 2 or 3 books per week. But I really want to read 100 books in just one year. That would be amazing.
What’s your favourite type of junk food?
I like pizza a lot. I honestly don’t think I eat a lot of junk food. I try to eat healthy most of the time. But sometimes I just allow myself to eat junk food. And if I go for a snack instead of pizza, it would probably be those sweet chilli tortilla chips. I recently discovered those and they are so good. Definitely my favourite right now. But I don’t have an addiction or something. I bought another bag of sweet chilli maybe two or three weeks ago and I still haven’t touched it yet.
What was your first job?
My first job was when I was 14 or something and I was a papergirl. I really hated it because at that time I also hated rain a lot. I was being this dramatic teenager and that job didn’t last long. But my first ‘real job was at a store and I worked there for 6 years. I liked it a lot, but I had to quit because at that time I had an internship and I also had a burn-out at the same time. So I thought the best thing was to leave the store and focus on school.
