Long time no see!
It has definitely been a while since I’ve shared my life with you on here. And it’s not because it didn’t want to or because I’ve had nothing to tell. But I haven’t felt the motivation to write something and if I had written something it would be just for the sake of it. Maybe you’re thinking, so what, I don’t care? And I can totally understand if you feel so but with the hard lockdown it has been interesting the last couple of months.
So the Holidays have been different to say the least. I had the Christmas tree up since mid November but I did not feel the Christmas spirit. We had a nice time with the family but we did not feel the Christmas spirit at all. Which was very weird, since usually I do feel the Christmas spirit. But on another note: I worked my last shift at Jan Linders the Sunday after Christmas! I felt so weird to say goodbye to a team and place which have been part of my life for quite some time. I made friends in that supermarket for life and I am so grateful for everything I learned, especially the knowledge the job gave me on different peoples characters and their way of working.
Since then, I’ve started working full time at the EJC (European Journalism Centre). For the ones paying attention, yes that is the same organisation where I did my internship and have stayed part time as HR support. I am very grateful that I can stay on full time and support & learn even more from Nikki. The team is so much fun and I think that this is the perfect start to start my professional career.
It has been weird, these times. No graduation, no first job interview and especially the 6th Christmas without my mother beside me. I’d like to think she would be proud of the person I have become and the choices I have made in my life. I know that I am proud of myself and I look forward to the rest this year, curious for what it will bring me.
I hope you all had a nice New Years, this year will hopefully be better. If we have faith, I know it will…. Keep holding on ✨
