Yesterday I turned 21 years old! Amidst all the craziness of graduation week – with all the parties, snacking, galas and practice walks – I celebrated my birthday. To commemorate this festive event on Almost Famous Writer, I looked back on the year since my last birthday and I listed exactly 21 highlights, including a lot of festivals, trips, press visits, finishing university and moving … Continue reading The Honest Hour #10 // My 21st Birthday!
Happy birthday to… me? That’s right, Almost Famous Writer is celebrating its second birthday today! On May 13, 2015 I published my very first article on this teeny tiny corner of the Internet and today, two full years later, I’m still writing, editing, photographing and publishing. Back in 2015, I had nearly completed my first year of university, I had an office job and was … Continue reading The Honest Hour #9 // Happy Birthday Almost Famous Writer!
During one’s Spring Break, there’s only so much you can do. Going on a holiday, having a major Spring cleaning session, retreating to the peace and quiet of your parents’ house, arranging stuff for life-changing events (such as graduating university and moving to a big city where they have building with more than 8 floors) and binge-watching Netflix.

The two are best friends, sharing everything from blowdryers, pop tarts and life advice, and live in a slightly eccentric … Continue reading The Honest Hour #6 // An Ode To Gilmore Girls
As I am writing this, I’m in the middle of my second week of my senior year at university, and I can’t seem to wrap my head around it. Maybe if I say it one more it will become less surreal – I am in my senior year of university. No. Still unbelievable. I can’t believe that only two years ago, I graduated from high … Continue reading The Honest Hour #5 // Senior Year
The first time I visited a music festival, I was thirteen years old. I was in my first year of high school and my Dad took me to Pinkpop, one of the biggest music festivals here in The Netherlands. I was incredibly excited, because some of favorite bands at that time were performing at the festival and I really wanted to see them perform live. … Continue reading The Honest Hour #4 // Music Festivals
