My self-summary
Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.


(Couldn't have said it better myself.)

I'm a sweet, innocent girl, that's often too shy an often too blunt, often too big mouthed and often too curious.
I'm just trying to keep up with life and wondering what it's all about, like anyone else. Trying not to hurt anyone and failing miserably too often to my liking, like anyone else too probably.
If I have to describe myself, I'd say that I'm sensitive, intelligent, clumsy, spontaneous, emotional, deeply caring about animals, introspective, serious, lazy, enthousiastic, euh... I could go on for a while... :D
What I’m doing with my life
At the moment I'm studing General Linguistics at the university and Speech Therapy at the university of applied sciences (hbo in Dutch). I want to finish my Ba this year and start with the Ma Speech and Language Pathology in Septembre next year. Doing 2 studies is quite hard, but I don't it mind that much, because I love my studies and the combination of them is very interesting.
After finishing my Ma, I probably want to work with children with severe speech disorders or hearing impairments. But next to that I'm also very interested in children and adults with acquired speech disorders due to an injury.

Next to my studies I will be doing a painting course and a ballroom dancing course this year. I hope I can also take a Jiu Jitsu course. In my spare time I like to visit my friends, to read, to solve puzzles, to play (board and card) games, playing stupid girlish computer games like 'the Sims' and at the moment 'Rune Factory', I sometimes go jogging (preferably also with my dog), I like to do Pilates and to dance. And if I have some time left I want to practise Pole Fitness again.

To me the best way to spent the weekend is to take long strolls with my parent's dog. It's one of my dreams to one day have my own dog and walk to Santiago de Compostella with my dog.
I love being near animals, so I'm always wondering whether I should give up my academic career after getting my Ma grade and go work with animals. Maybe there will be a day that I can combine those two ambitions.
I’m really good at
Putting people and animals at ease.
And that means a lot to me. I think it's an important part of who I am. I don't mind telling people when I think they make stupid mistakes, I like laughing at people and that's not something you should be offended by. Life is too ridiculous to pretend it's not. I don't expect you to be perfect. As long as you try not to harm others and try to learn from your experiences, you're safe with me. I judge actions, not persons.
The most beautiful compliment I ever got was from a friend of a friend who had just told me how he had messed up his life. He said to me that he had never met anyone that was so honest and unjudgemental at the same time. I do my best to keep that up.

"An' it harm none, do what ye will. Blessed be to thee."
The first things people usually notice about me
Hmm, I wouldn't know. Probably my clumsiness. I tend to drop things on the floor, struggle with my skirt and the wind while riding my bicycle, trying to hold too many things in my hands at the same time and most of the time I'm laughing at my silliness. I guess I'm not very gracious. I'd love to be, but I'm not.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I always forget the names of the books and films and music that really moved me.
But I like most of the work of Arthur Japin, Renate Dorrestein, Harry Mulisch, Annie M.G. Schmidt and Terry Pratchett among others. I like children's books and verses, folklore and psychological books.
As for films... I like films that have a bit of fantasy to them, like Big Fish and Up. I like European films. And I like costume dramas. I'm not very fond of most horror films, thrillers and chick flicks.
I don't listen to music much. I love the silence. Some of the music that I do like is Pink Floyd, Queen, Lily Allen, Nick Drake, SOLO and music from the musical Hair, Hairspray, Phantom of the Opera, Jesus Christ Superstar.
Food.... Now were talking. I love food. I love to cook, which I haven't done properly for a long period of time due to lack of a proper kitchen. And I love to eat. Eating good food is heavenly. All the subtile flavours, the structures, the smells...
I love dining, but my every day favorites are spaghetti and mash pot.
Six things I could never do without
1) Animals.
2) My little sisters.
3) Conversations.
4) Laughter.
5) Sexuality.
6) Cuddles.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What moves people and what moves me.

And at the moment where I want to do my internships. I'm not very good at choosing. I wouldn't want to miss out on anything.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home or with friends playing games/chatting. I don't go out much.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that I have a very low tolerance for stupidity. I know, it's not something to be proud of, it's even very useless, but dumb people really get on my nerves. I get the urge to bang people's heads against a wall until their brain start working, but that hasn't worked out for me (yet).
It's not that I find intelligence a very important trait in people. I have more respect for compassion and kindness. But talking to someone significantly less intelligent than I am, bores the hell out of me.

On the other hand, I love talking to people that are smarter than I. That means I have an opportunity to grow, to learn to think better. I really get a kick out of a clean theory or a nice argumentation. I rather be wrong than be bored.
You should message me if
you have (a) passion(s).
you are sensitive.
you are smart.
you are sincere.

But only message me if:
- you respect that I won't give you my MSN-address, photo's etc. until I really like you and want to be friends with you 'in real life' (and that can take a while...). Don't worry, I'm no monster, I just like my privacy.
- you message me because you think you'd like me and not just because I'm a woman and you might score.

Please don't be disappointed if I don't message you right away. I tend to forget things that are not "in real life". I try my best.
In the past I tried to answer every message, even the not-so-special-oneliners because I think people can be quite different from the first impression they make. But I've learned that my intuition is often right. So if you really want me to answer, be creative!

I'd love to hear from you.
The two of us
