New theme!

Today I decided to get a new theme for this blog. I’ve been using the Pachyderm theme for the past few months and I got so many nice responses because of it. Yet I felt like I wanted some change.

I went with the Sela theme this time, but I’m not sure yet whether I’m completely satisfied. It isn’t as cute as my previous theme but the colours are brighter and I think it looks a bit nicer like this.

What do you think about it?

Safe in Brussels

I’m safe at home in Brussels…

Luckily my boyfriend left home early and walked to his work instead of taking the subway. So he is safe as well.

My thoughts are with the victims and their families.

Lots of Love

Happy 2016! How would you say it?

Happy New Year everyone! In my language (Dutch, aka Nederlands) we would say “Gelukkig Nieuwjaar”. How would you wish someone a happy new year in your language? ^^

New Year’s poem: Creaking under winter’s weight

Breakfast for refugees

Hey there ^^

Last Friday I was finally able to go volunteering at the North Station in Brussels. That’s where the department for Immigration Affairs is and every day people start queuing there around 5 am (the office only opens at 8.30 I believe). Together with an organisation and other university students we helped by distributing tea and coffee and handing out bread, biscuits, fruits and yogurt. Some other students also interviewed refugees.

Although I often sign petitions for Greenpeace and Amnesty International and I donate monthly to the Belgian department of Doctors of the World, an NGO whose vision

is of a world in which vulnerable people affected by war, natural disasters, disease, hunger, poverty or exclusion get the healthcare they need regardless of income or status. (Doctors of the world – UK)

I still didn’t feel like I was really doing something…
But by visiting the refugees last Friday morning, I somehow felt like I was helping for real. I know that serving people breakfast isn’t anything special, but I just got a really good feeling after seeing their smiles and talking to them. Their stories are unbelievable and I realized even more than before how lucky I am to be born in a safe place. I will definitely try to go and help there every week from now on (even though I’m really bad at getting up early 🙂 ) I’m really happy that my flatmate asked me to join her that day.

Lots of Love
