#2433 – Hello December

ENGLISH Yeay it’s December, the last month of 2020! I am quite sure that many of us couldn’t wait for 2020 to end and for 2021 to be a much brighter year, haha. Speaking of December, as of today in the Netherlands masks are mandatory to be worn in indoor spaces (there are exceptions, of…

#2432 – Recent Tennis Stories

ENGLISH So what’s new? Well, nothing really, haha, as with all the COVID-19 restrictions my life has pretty much been in quarantine. So there is less variety and, hence, less interesting thing to write down here. Anyway, last week the extra restrictions which had been enacted since the beginning of the month were lifted. But…

#2431 – A Weekend in Wien

#2427 – Blogging, Recent TV Shows, and A DST

ENGLISH So as you may have noticed, recently my posting frequency here has gone further downhill. To be frank, it has been quite hard to find the motivation to write here; but I think this is something that a lot of us have been feeling anyway. And WordPress certainly doesn’t help. In fact, I feel…

#2426 – A Long Weekend Story

ENGLISH So this weekend was a long weekend to me. No, there was not any public holiday here in the Netherlands (it is not holiday season 😛 ), but rather I made use of two of my holiday allowances which I haven’t been able to use much this year, haha. Anyway, as my Instagram followers…
