Hi there stranger,
Last time we spoke I just turned 23, it was freezing cold and 2016 had just began! Needless to say, it has been a while but I do have a good excuse for my absence: SCHOOL! Right after January, I started the hardest part of my whole academic career thus far & I just couldn’t add anything to that. Le monde d’Alida, amongst many others, got put to the back burner & for six months I slept, ate, breathed school. It got to the point where the university library became my second home. Luckily it was all worth it & I’m back! By popular demands 😉 Does this mean school is over? Well for now it is. Which implies that I have all the time and energy to fully commit to LMA (Le monde d’Alida). With that I have made some changes.
First of all LMA has had some overhauling, starting with the lay out! You like?? Because I do! I also made some changes to the content. During my absence I had some time to think. Yes, yes, though school took up most of my brain capacity, some was left for me & I realised: my world, and the love in it, consist of much more than poetry. Now this doesn’t mean I’ll stop sharing my latest creations. Simply that in additions, I’ll take you along the rest of this ride called LIFE!
For example, besides writing poems, I eat! So it shouldn’t be a surprise to read that I love going out to eat! This too will become a part of LMA, alongside some of the books I’ve read, event’s I’ve visited, the music I listen. Furthermore I’m contemplating sharing a bit more of my personal life with you guys. Hence the new Real Life menu. There, I’m thinking of sharing some tips and tricks when it come to school. I don’t have all the answers, but I have acquired some information along the way & some of which I would’ve liked to know years before. As I mentioned I love to eat a lot and though I wished I could have all my meals prepared by the best chefs of the world. I’m not there yet, therefore I am responsible for most of my diet & this too will make its way to LMA.
Finally, the greatest and biggest news of all: ‘I’m taking it up a notch‘. Instead of posting once a month, I am going to attempt to post at least once a week. Yes, you’ve read it right: At least once a week. This means that I’m committing to a post each Wednesday at noon and sometimes more. I’ll make sure to notify you through Instagram and Facebook so you will not miss a thing. All you have to do is follow me!
Lastly a MAJOR shout out to the photographer of all the amazing pictures you see Meredith Wielingen and Amanda Tamara for introducing me to her as well as coming up with the idea for a blogger meet up which led to these beautiful pictures. I appreciate having fellow bloggers to lean on when needed and I really recommend taking a look at their blogs itsfashionilove.com and amandatamara.nl. Promise you won’t regret it and this will not be the last time you’ll see me mentioning them.
Thank you so much for your patience, you support, your love & I ecstatically welcome you back, with open arms, to the new and improved Le Monde d’Alida.
