20 random thoughts on a rainy Thursday

I haven’t written a 20 random thoughts list in a very long time, let’s remedy that! 🙂

  1. It’s national poetry day in the Netherlands, That is why I have no doubt poems WILL show up 🙂
  2. If you look outside, it’s more autumnal than winter-y. I miss winter. Not the iced, cold kind, but the kind where you open your window and shriek at the snow appearing outside
  3. I have made a little To Be read books area in the bedroom and I love it so much. I smile every morning when I see it.
  4. I have been a vegetarian for a long time. I thought I might have some dairy intolerance issues, and, well, turns out I do. Am eating fully plant-based now and my body just loves it.
  5. I have a natural talent for making messes. But I make the WORST messes when I tidy up. Go figure.
  6. I’m no longer a bullet journaler. I’m more a go-with-the-flow-er. I may have to write about how I keep track nowadays.
  7. The funny thing is that I picked up a book from my shelves and in it the author says that she journals/plans the same way I do.
  8. I haven’t written one of these posts in a long time and they are my favourites to write as they are mostly effortless.
  9. Of course, they don’t feel like that when I start. The first 2 or 3 are always burdened by the constant thoughts that I can never come up with 20.
  10. I’m still fueled by tea, as one of the lines in my profiles used to say. I especially love Yogi Tea chai, favourites are throat comfort, turmeric orange and ginger orange.
  11. It’s national poetry day in the Netherlands and that means there might be a bonus poem here.
  12. I don’t write a lot of poetry here these days, too focused on publishing the poems at the moment, I think 🙂
  13. I have the weirdest early morning thoughts. Today I thought I really wanted to buy a piano. I can’t even read sheet music.
  14. We’re in lockdown and I badly need a haircut. I might grow it out now and study how to do an updo.
  15. I say the latter every time my hair comes to my shoulders and every time I cut it off.
  16. I haven’t posted about my goals yet, but I do love that I have set MANAGEABLE goals. My 21 before 21 list was mostly unfinished because it was ridiculously ambitions. Editing a novel in a month etc. (ugh)
  17. As for my novel, it isn’t on my Q1 goals. I am finishing up shorter projects first.
  18. I always listen to lofi hiphop when writing, mostly Chilledcow on Spotify. It just calms my mind down enough to write. Also, I have listened to the beats to relax/study to playlist so often that I start to recognise tracks 🙂
  19. One of the most relaxing things to do on my iPad is drawing in Procreate.
  20. I dream of one day illustrating my own picture book.
