My name is Allie. Or Alexandra. Or Alex or Lex. Whatever you like.
I’m an au pair living in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Or pretty close to there anyway. More like in a village. I really like it though–close proximity to Amsterdam and Leiden, but still quiet.
I just started writing this blog because it felt right. I’ve had other blogs before, but I had expectations for them, and so they fizzled. Now I just write about myself, things I do/that happen to me, my thoughts, etc.
And my poetry and stuff is here as well. I plan to use it for my graduate school portfolio and probably other things, so don’t go coppin’ my shit.
Or, at least I was. My name is the same, but everything else has changed.
I started to feel not so happy in that village, so I moved to Leiden for a bit and went to graduate school. I didn’t feel any happier their, in fact I probably felt worse, so I moved back to America.
Now I’m living in my grandmothers house with my mother and brothers. It’s cool. I feel happier.
I still occasionally get inspired to write poetry. I have a lot of stuff I might out on here one day.
I’m still going to school and self-teaching different things, like Photoshop, FinalCut, self-discipline, mindfulness and happiness.
I can’t complain 😀
