Day 120

Today I smiled because:

  • I had brunch in bed, after having slept over 8 hours.
  • Went to watch Tyrannosaur. It’s a good movie. Moving.
  • A lot of talking with one of my best friends made some things pretty clear for me. Thank you for helping me see through the fogginess, V!
  • Having a nap on the train home with this song on repeat and sunlight through the windows.

Day 119

Today I smiled because:

  • Once again, singing class went very well. B and I have learned a lot today.
  • Gerard, my orchid, is doing very well. He still has a lot of flowers, and is not looking sad or withered or anything.
  • Chocolate milk at De Dikke Kat. I had a nice talk with Iz. She’s the sweetest!
  • Ice cream with friends I haven’t seen in quite a while. Such fun! (For those who’ve seen Miranda: pun intended)

Day 118

Today I smiled because:

  • I had a very nice evening with some friends.
  • I finally started using my Polaroid-camera again. My Precious!
  • Chocolate gin. That doesn’t really need an explanation, does it?
  • Pink Floyd. I should listen to Pink Floyd more often.

Day 117

Today I smiled because:

  • My hair was still smelling of the conditioner I used yesterday. And I like the way it looked today.
  • Some fellow-Wolves and I went on a mission tonight.
  • I ended up writing my favorite poem by Jotie T’Hooft on two beer coasters, and putting them in the drawer of a table in a bar. The drawer was already filled with secrets, which were interesting to read.
  • I finally heard back from a relative I’d lost contact with.

Day 116

Today I smiled because:

  • Someone called me ‘pluisbol’. And that made me giggle.
  • I took a long hot bath with lots of foam and music and some gin. Bliss.
  • I read the words ‘camping rules’ somewhere. I immediately thought “Camping rule n° 1: There shall be no camping! Damn Campers!”. And though I’ve never played Call Of Duty or anything like that, it still brought back some good memories.
  • One of the girls in my building was playing her violin today. And she’s very good at it.

Day 115

Today I smiled because:

  • My laundry (which I left in the dryer at the washing salon last night) was still there. I was really worried about it.
  • Interesting conversations.
  • I went dancing! The music was wonderful. And I love it when people make me twirl around.
  • A and a friend of hers went to the Boombal with me, and we had a lot of fun.

Day 114

Today I smiled because:

  • Taking some steps. Big step for me, small step for the human kind.
  • This song. 90% of the time, the acoustic version of a song is the best one.
  • Also: this song.
  • I received a long but sweet e-mail. Food for thought.

Day 113

Today I smiled because:

  • R came to visit, unexpectedly. My sofa is a nice place for talking, it seems.
  • Experimenting with couscous, mushrooms and tomatoes. I like going into the kitchen without knowing what I’m going to make or if it will taste good.
  • Thanks to today’s me, tomorrow’s me and the day after tomorrow’s me won’t have to cook. Because I made an awful lot of couscous.
  • Today I lit some candles at my place, for the first time. C-c-c-c-cosy!

Day 112

Today I smiled because:

  • Riding my bike in the sun. Blissfulness!
  • A friend of mine was doing a more than awesome project for his birthday, and took pictures of me and 29 other people.
  • Singing class with B went VERY well. And we sang a cheerful song.
  • Chocolate milk and Nutella sandwiches at De Dikke Kat, at last.

Day 111

Today I smiled because:

  • I got to wear one of my favorite dresses again.
  • I had a nice evening with an acquaintance.
  • Reading a book V gave me. There’s lots of beautiful words in it. Like ‘schaloos’, ‘twist’ and ‘blijmoedig’. I love it when someone uses words that most people have forgotten about.
  • I’m looking forward to tomorrow!
