Hi, my name is Thinkie, welcome to my blog!
I'm a student in cultural studies, a museum enthusiast, a scrapbooker and an art journaler. I love to travel within Europe and I enjoy photography. You can read more about me on my homepage.
And in Dutch I enjoy:
I live, I love, I create, I capture, I learn, I enjoy.
Words for 2010 / Woorden voor 2010A year ago I figured that after a year of 'finish' I would be ready for 'simplify'. But I'm not ready with finish! Finishing projects results in simplifying; when I finish certain projects there are less things on my mind and there are less stacks of stuff aroun the house that require some sort of action. So 'finish' is moving with me into 2010 and I'm adding 'simplify'.
To me, 'finish' means finishing projects (which shows in my 28/29-list.)
'Simplify' to me means to make things easier and more simple, working on less things at the time so I can focuss well on a few things. Finding easier ways to do things. Tackling the mess in the house (getting rid of things that have become redundant and finding the best way of storing everything else). One of the things I'll be doing when it comes to simplifying is stop keeping seperate diaries, photo-albums and scrapbookalbums and combine them into one. This will save me effort, money, time and space since I won't be doing the same things several times. I will be keeping a journal for things that are to personal for the album and maybe an inspirationjournal. If we will be travelling I'll keep a traveljournal that I can integrate into the album when we come home. Another way to simplify is to use what we have well. That means we will have to buy less new stuff and less idle stuff taking up space.
Een jaar geleden al had ik bedacht dat ik na een jaar 'finish' (afmaken) klaar zou zijn voor 'simplify' (vereenvoudigen). Maar ik ben nog niet klaar met finish! Het afmaken van projecten leidt wel mooi naar simplify, als ik bepaalde grote projecten af heb heb ik minder aan m'n hoofd en liggen er in huis minder stapeltjes met spullen waar ik nog wat mee moet doen.
Voor 2010 houd ik dus finish nog even bij me en ik voeg er simplify aan toe.
