Month no. 3
Day Zero Project

– progress of month no. 3 –
A few days later than supposed to, but here’s the progress of month 3. I have to admit, I didn’t follow up on too many goals during November and the beginning of December, but hey, let’s blame it on the darkness and cold okay?

17.   Visit five different museums [4/5]
One thing I did do in the last month of the project was visiting museums. Three museums to be precise. First, I went to the Groninger Museum with my boyfriend, because we had tickets for free that we could use until the end of the year. We had recently been there, so the only new thing was the Mundo Mendini exhibition, which I liked surprisingly much. The second museum was FOAM in Amsterdam, where I went alone. Then it still had the Brassaï exhibition (closed on December 4th), which I liked very much. Number three of the museums was the World Press Photo exhibition, which I visit every year. Impressive as always. Read more »

November 2018
ESC-diary in retrospect, month no. 3

“The next day my roommate and I wanted to go hitchhiking to Linz, so we only wanted to go for one beer… Guess who were the two people who partied until 5:30 in the morning?” This was the cliffhanger of my last ESC-diary in retrospect. I know, I know, it was very hard to guess the correct answer. For those of you who didn’t guess it: it was me, together with my hitchhiking partner.

– 1st of november, thursday –
So our plan of starting to hitchhike at 8 in the morning didn’t quite work out. Instead, with a huge hangover, we started our journey around 2 in the afternoon. Our first ride arrived within a minute of trying; how much luck could we have? The woman didn’t take us too far, then we had to wait a lot and only got two very short rides. This is when things got good again: a very nice guy with a very nice car stopped for us and said he could take us for around one and half hours in the right direction. He was very kind, but he also decided to drive over a mountain instead of through the tunnel, which meant lots and lots of curves. I had to focus so hard not to throw up. He started to joke that he would drop us off at the top of the mountain, but he did it for so long that I was actually scared we would stay on the mountain top. In the end, we made it to Innsbruck and realised it was already dark outside and no one was taking us anymore. We opted for our backup-plan: taking the train to Linz. Read more »

A trip to Galicia
October 2019

I spent the last week of October, just before starting the new job, in Galicia. It was the first time that I went there with my boyfriend and it was the first time I met his family and friends. Before going, we spent a day in Eindhoven at the Dutch Design week and we returned in Bremen, where we also spent a day exploring. This time there’ll be less stories; the photos can tell the story.

Month no. 2
Day Zero Project

– progress of month no. 2 – 
A second of the Day Zero Project has passed; I achieved some new goals and I progressed on several others. Here’s the progress I made!

36.   Start the Koala Lumpur project [17.10.2019]
So far, I wrote in the list that this goal was a secret one – I didn’t want to say anything about it before actually starting it. My boyfriend and I had this idea a while ago, to start a koala-project together. For now it’s an Instagram account with photos of the koala that I made, but hopefully in the future there will be designs and other koala-related things. Go and follow our cute koala!

October 2018
ESC-diary in retrospect, month no. 2

– 3rd of october, wednesday –
It was a strange day – the new volunteers arrived, so we got to meet them, but one of the previous volunteers left. We made a goodbye party for her and decorated the kitchen. It’s strange how you can know someone for only a month, but already feel sad when they leave, because you spent so much time together in this one month. Read more »
