At first, I started this blog because I was going to pursue a second MA in communication studies. On second thought however, and right after I got accepted to the program, I suddenly realized that this wasn’t what I wanted to do at all. Instead, I set my focus on finding a job, jumping head first into the water (together with my best friend which, if we’re honest, makes the whole gasping for air thing in case you drown just a tat safer) and become … an adult. I know, I know: don’t do it, it’s a trap! I guess I like challenges. I like being on the move, both mentally and physically. For me, life is about experience. And experiencing it I will. After having seen the insides of schools and universities for nearly twenty years of my life, I decided I had enough. So here I am, on a new journey. The magnificent challenge of growing up, of finding your place in a world nobody seems to have a fair grasp of. What does any of this have to do with the blog? Well, in short, despite the change of plans, I just can’t give it up. I admit, I haven’t put up anything new in a while. But these last weeks took up quite a bit of my energy. I’m sure many of you know exactly what I mean. However, good news. I’m back. But … hang on, you ask, what is this blog about anyway? Well, it’s really quite simple. I love quotes, and they love me. No, kidding, I’m sure if they could talk they’d yell at me to please stop taking them out of context. But I won’t. Taking quotes out of context and putting them in a different time and place, to tell an entirely new story, is exactly what makes reading fun in general. Lévy calls it actualisation of content, I call it the reader’s play time. Either way, whatever it is, I sincerely hope you’ll enjoy it!
