To live or not to live...


You know what the best thing is about studying in a place +-40km from your home town? No one who knows you. You can start fresh, be who you want to be and leave all your troubles at home. The other best thing about studying in college or Uni? Having new friends who don't know what you did in first grade or what embarrasing things happend to you back when you were in high school. You're a (like Aristoteles would say) a "Tabula Rasa" .. okay, you're not reborn or something but it's something similar to that experience. Am I right, Uni & College Guys & Gals? :)

Hy guys!

Wow, what an intro! Sorry about that. But yeah, it's the last thursday of the month so I thought about writing something from my own point of view.
It's my third year now in Ghent and I didn't regret one second about it! I JUST LOVE THIS PLACE. I'm finally free from the bullies in my old town and I have a lot of  new friends, friends for life actually... Friends that made me see things different. Friends that have other experiences of  life, other lifestyles, other things they like. I even met one of my best friends there. We share almost everything and I'm glad I have someone I can bother with stuff because I know she knows what I'm dealing with and always knows a sollution.

But yeah, Ghent is just one of the most busiest places I know, and the most fun too! There's always something to do and when there's nothing to do you just can chill and relax with friends in a café or at the Graslei. It's just a great town for students. And for people, like me, who are addicted to posting things on Instagram ( go follow me : az_sindriznarrvel) about the little quiet places or the things happening. For ex. yesterday. We ( my friend and I) had to go to the opening of the schoolyear and at the same time the 2Oth anniversary of our school. It was a bit boring ( because we thought it would be over by 4 pm so we had a lot of time to go to Student Kick-Off. But we were wrong. We finally got out of there by 6pm... but we both had about 4 pictures ready to go on Instagram by then. After that we went to get some food at the Wok Away and went to the Graslei to eat it. Again about 12 pics taken, a few ready to post on Instagram in the following days. Around 7.30 pm we finally got to Student Kick-off . And. We. Had. A. Blast! Yes, again 13 pics taken and ready to go on Instagram & Twitter ( yes we tweeted a lot last night, DUH).

Ghent is just the best place to take pictures and to live as a student. It has a lot of charmes, isn't scary at all ( okay, maybe a few spots but just avoid them) and is student friendly ( if you know where to look).

A few pics.. :

I'm just in Love.

There, that's of my chest :)
If you like it, leave a comment.. If you don't, well don't worry, next week it's a book post!

First thoughts on...

the new season and cast of Dancing With The Stars season 21!

Hy guys!

So, about 3 months ago, one of my friends and I did a collab on the new (fictional) cast of DWTS season 21. We got none of the celebs right but we did get 8 of the pro's.

For this collab we'll make our top 13 after watching the first episode and make a prediction on who (probably) will win, who we want to win and other stuff like that...

Our top 13
1-2-3) Derek & Bindi / Mark & Alexa /Whitney & Carlos
4) Sharna & Nick
5) Allison & Andy
6) Val & Tamar
7) Lindsay & Alek
8) Emma & Hayes
9) Louis & Paula
10) Karina & Victor
11) Tony & Kim
12) Keo & Chaka
13) Anna & Gary

A) Who's going to win? : Mark & Alexa
B) Who do you want to win? : Derek & Bindi
C) Who will be the first to be voted out? : Anna & Gary
D) Which couples will be in the last 3? : Mark & Alexa, Ncik & Sharna and Lindsay & Alek

my friend:
1) Derek & Bindi
2) Val & Tamar
3-4) Whitney & Carlos / Sharna & Nick
5) Allison & Andy
6) Mark & Alexa
7) Lindsay & Alek
8) Emma & Hayes
9) Karina & Victor
10) Tony & Kim
11) Keo & Chaka
12) Louis & Paula
13) Anna & Gary

A) Who's going to win? : Whitney & Carlos
B) Who do you want to win? : Derek & Bindi
C) Who will be the first to be voted out? : Louis & Paula OR Anna & Gary
D) Which couples will be in the last 3? : Karina & Victor, Derek & Bindi and Lindsay & Alek

There you go, that's what we think based on the first episode of season 21!
Let's see if we're right ;)
But I should be lying if I said I don't want to see Whitney & Carlos and Mark & Alexa to compete in the last dance. Would be sooooo epic!

untill next week!

Top 5 - School Edition

This is one crappy post, I know. But I don't have a lot of time at the moment. Sorry!

1) Never go to class, you could LEARN something
2) Never go to an exam on your own, otherwise you can't cheat
3) Never go to the toilet alone, the Chamber of Secrets could open and you could be killed
4) If you want to stay in school DON'T blow it up saying it was a Laistrygoon
5) Just enjoy

1) Ga nooit naar de les, je zou iets kunnen LEREN
2) Ga nooit alleen naar een examen, zo kan je niet afkijken
3) Ga nooit alleen naar het toilet, de Geheime Kamer kan zich openen en je kan vermoord worden
4) Als je in school wil blijven, blaas die dan niet op zeggende dat het een Laistrygoon was
5) Geniet er gewoon van
