Is it too late for some good old new year's resolutions?

Is it? And why not just call them resolutions? Things we tend to live by, no matter the time of the year?
It's been awfully quiet here, I know. And I am not going to apologise for that. Been there done that. It's been a rough couple of months and this is the first time I felt confident enough to actually write something here.

To give you guys an update on what's been going on, here's a short summary.

1. The house
We have been cleaning and painting our asses off and I think we've come to a point in the process where we can live here for a few years before turning it completely upside down. We just finished the bathroom and nothing in the world makes me happier than taking a shower in the morning in a clean, nice, all white bathroom. Plus, gigantic selfie mirror, what else?

2. The job
I've been without a job for quite a while now and I'm not yet at a point where I'm able to talk about it without bursting into tears. However, I got the opportunity to turn my hobby into something that hopefully one day will pay the bills. I got the chance to work at an all vegan specialty coffee bar in the centre of Ghent and I couldn't be more grateful for that. I learn so much every day and I work with people who are so kind and so generous. And just recently I got a call to combine that with teaching one of my favourite subjects. So all in all, all is well.

3. The reading
I've read more books the last couple of months than I've read all through high school. And I love it. I started my own bookclub and the first couple of meetings were an absolute succes. Plus, it actually awoke something inside me and I've started writing some things on my own as well. And you know, maybe one day I'll publish them, we'll see.

4. The blog
As I've said somewhere last year, I really want to turn this blog from being a vegan lifestyle blog to a more personal blog in which I get to tell my story. I've started this blog to help me in my transition towards being a fully grown pain in the ass vegan and I honestly believe I managed to become that person, if I want to be that person. Just kidding, I still haven't managed the being a pain in the ass part of being a vegan, instead I still let people tell me that it's not my place to annoy them with my views. Any tips and tricks on that front, leave them in the comments below. Thanks for reading.
