Taking my blog in a different direction…

Hey! Long time no see.

As you guys probably noticed, I don’t upload anything anymore. And to be honest, there’s no other reason for it than just the fact that I didn’t know what to upload. I browsed the web for ideas but could find none that suited me. So I came up with something myself.

Not too long ago I found out about an app called ‘Aliexpress’. And holy hell, how did I never know about it?! It’s a damn gem, everything you want you can order, and cheap if you like.

So what I’m gonna do is review items I got from there starting…well when my last order comes in. I’ll take pictures, style the items, review  the quality etc.

So that’s all, hopefully my order comes quick so I can begin the reviewing!

Depression is real

Alright everyone, today’s post is going to be a bit…different.

On December 30th 2016, a 12 year old girl named Katelyn Nichole Davis live streamed her own suicide. The reason for her suicide was, in her own words, because she thought she was worthless, not good enough, not pretty enough and nobody cared about her. You can read about her home situation on her blog (look up: Diary of a broken doll).

Depression is something I myself have dealt with. I used to cut my wrists with a knife, and thought about suicide lots of times. With time, I got myself to talk about it with my mom, grandparents and boyfriend. They helped me get out of my depression. I still suffer from social anxiety, but I’m working on improving that also.

If you suffer from depression and suicidal thought, please, just please talk about it with someone. Doesn’t matter who, but try to talk about it with your parents first. They most likely had no idea about you being depressed, because most people tend to hide it. Do it NOW, before it is too late. Thank you.

XOXO Brigitte

Current Situation

Hey guys! I felt like blogging today so, here we go!

I would like to fill you in on what I am currently doing, in terms of school and work etc. So June 2016 I graduated from high school, and at that point I was just really done with studying. I was happy because I made it, but on the other hand I kinda felt worn out. But my mom urged me to start studying that following September, so I did…

Bad discision. Because when I had to choose my next study, I was already so busy with trying to get good grades at high school. I made the discision to start a study called ‘Medische Hulpverlening’ way too quick, and after only a hundred days I quit the study. I’ve learned from this and it won’t happen again as I’ll follow group courses to find a study that fits my talents, interest and personality. I’m starting those courses this January 16th.

My next study will probably start September 1st, because almost every study starts on that date. I want to be motivated, and in order to get there I figured that I should start by getting a job. Since November 2016 I’m a volunteer at a Care Center and I love working with those people. I usually shop with a lady who has suffered brain damage when she was born. But now I’m looking for a paid job, and probably it’s gonna be at a florist as a friend of mine works there too.

And that’s it, that is my current situation regarding school and work. I’ll add this post to a new category called ‘Work and Study’.
