Working at a theme park as a socially anxious introvert

I love working at a theme park. Every time my position is elsewhere; controlling the rides, welcoming visitors at the entrance, selling ice cream and drinks… There are various things to do, which makes it so much fun to work there. And when the kids are smiling and waving at me, my heart melts. There’s no other side job I’d rather do!

The only obstacle I have to face, however, is my social anxiety.

Travel Nostalgia: Athens, Greece, 2016

Hey readers! In the series “Travel Nostalgia” I look back on the travel adventures I’ve had with my friends (and parents) in the past.

Happy Father’s day

To all the dads with big and small families; the dads who work and stay at home; the dads who have a partner and those who do it alone; the dads who take care of their bonus or adopted children, and the dads who have lost their own; and lastly to the fathers I’ve forgotten and of course my own dad,

I wish to say:

Happy Father’s day!

We see you, we appreciate you. Even if we don’t always show respect or life is so hard that we express our frustrations out on you, we love you.

My friendships with social media platforms

Social Media can be very complicated. I’m probably not the only one who thinks so. They are great for connecting with others, but OH they are so addictive! When I noticed what it was doing to my mental health, some platforms had to be left. Some friendships are just really toxic; if they’re not making you happy, say goodbye! And that’s what I did. Here’s my journey through all the friendships with social media platforms.

Waiting for that last exam… (and an update on my blogging)

Before the start of the statistics exam, I felt so much stress. Hmmm… I hadn’t written anything for my blog yet, so who knows, this situation might be really interesting to write about! I wanted to keep myself busy, so enjoy me ranting about how stupid I feel (and the future of my blog).
