Wat zou je jongere zelf vertellen?

Een tijd geleden las ik deze post op A Cup of Jo: Here, 11 women share the warm and funny advice they would offer their younger selves, and I’d love to hear yours… Dat is iets waar je even van gaat nadenken. Op een willekeurige treinrit schreef ik deze bij mekaar. Kans is groot dat […]

How to Grow Up: A Guide to Humans

Jawaddedadde, Mark Manson: The problem is that the media (again, both on the right and the left) has discovered that reinforcing the childish wishes of extremists on each side is good for business.

Vanity Fair kreeg een exclusieve blik achter de schermen van de nieuwe Star Wars: We know things, as a people and as an audience, that we didn’t know back then. For example: back then it felt sort of O.K. to like Darth Vader, because even though he was evil he was also incredibly cool, and […]

Create a ‘Noticing Wall’ for Your Kid

Lifehacker: If you’re creating a noticing wall, a good first rule would be: Don’t talk about the noticing wall, or at least don’t talk about it too much. You don’t even need to give the wall a name. Let it just sit there and be a quiet place for thoughts, hopes and curiosities. Dit ga […]

Owen Williams: There are two things that the iPad excels at: battery life—despite a constant 4G connection—and the ways it forces you to multitask: slowly, with intent. 100% mee eens.

Zelfstandige in bijberoep

Ik ben sinds 2,5 jaar zelfstandige in bijberoep. Ik doe vanalles rond bier, zoals bierdegustaties aan huis, hobbybrouwcursussen en gidsbeurten bij Het Anker. En ik help organisaties en andere zelfstandigen rond communicatie, evenementen en campagnes. Allemaal leuk, want het zijn allemaal dingen waar je een centje voor wil vragen en op die manier kan dat […]
