  • "Hating things: it tended to tell you who you were. Loving things rarely did." / "Joni Mitchell was sitting in the doorway, placidly licking a paw, the feline equivalent of a bitch filing her nails." // Hermione Hoby's Neon in Daylight was such a good read, I thorougly enjoyed it. Hoby has such a nice writing style. I didn't know anything about the book when I picked it up from a library shelf, I just liked the cover and the blurb. Literary luck!
  • More books: Kurt . I don't know what it is about Sarah Kuttner's writing but it always hits close to home. I loved the description of the old house, the garden work. It made me want to move into my grandma's house with a sad boyfriend, watering the roses with a hose on a lazy summer evening.

RELEASE - What did you let go of this year? // I let go of a lot of weight. Quite literally. I established some healthy routines for myself like certain food rules and trying to move every day. Which made me lose 35kg and made me feel great. I learned that doing a little bit every day has so much power. I also had to sell my car which was a big step for me. Now I’m relying on public transport, my own feet, my bicycle. And you know what? Right now I wouldn’t want to go back. Sure, there are times when a car would come in very handy but I’m used to these obstacles by now. There is always a way. And not having a car forces me to lead a much more active life.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS - What were you deeply proud of doing, making, being, etc. this year? What made you feel good? // I just had a look at my 2017 and 2018 goals and noticed that I actually managed to meet most of them. It might have taken me longer than one year but that’s absolutely fine. Slow progress is still be...
