The Honest Hour #11 // Moving Out

Yesterday I moved out of my student room. Even though we had already moved most of my stuff and I had already moved in our new place in Rotterdam, yesterday was the day I really moved out of my student room. Already as I was walking up to the flat from the parking lot, I saw…

The Honest Hour #10 // My 21st Birthday!

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…

The Honest Hour #9 // Happy Birthday Almost Famous Writer!

Happy birthday to… me? That’s right, Almost Famous Writer is celebrating its second birthday today!

The Honest Hour #6 // An Ode To Gilmore Girls

Probably everyone who knows me, knows I love the TV show Gilmore Girls with all of my heart, body and soul. For years I have followed the story of young and single mother Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) and her shy, bookwormish daughter Rory (Alexis Bledel). The two are best friends, sharing everything from blowdryers, pop…

The Honest Hour #5 // Senior Year

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…
