Dear 2016, we're done .




We all have something to say about 2016 and I won't gush about everything I disliked about this year. Instead, I try to remind myself of all the good that took place despite the setbacks and disappointments.  

This year's favourites:

Movies:

Places:
Cape Town, South Africa.
Steilneset, Norway. 
Copenhagen, Denmark.

Music:
Solange - A Seat at the Table
Anohni - Hopelessness
Christine & the Queens - Chaleur Humaine

Books:

Small victories: 
This book. Two years in the making.
• Our TED-Ed was published.

Writing.

2017: Love conquers hate.




On Blogging:
I'm blogging less and less so I had to ask myself if there was any point keeping this blog at all. I've always thought of it as a visual diary, an exercise to make sure not a single month goes by without some form of recording. However, I had to do something to simplify the procedure. I removed all comments, I reorganised all labels, I deleted two-thirds of this blog's posts, I also deleted two old blogs of mine. Google doesn't make it easy for you to erase parts of your past online. It took hours, but I won.

[ September + October ] Is there such a thing as being creative in the morning?




Five things I'm very happy about:
• I went to Vestfold and can now proudly say that I've visited all 19 counties of Norway.
• I received this book in the mail. Two years in the making.
• Our TED-Ed was published!
• I wrote about gender in the Nobel sphere.
• And I spent four days in Copenhagen with Anaïs.
