Jan 4, 2011


Oh has everyone made new year resolutions? I’d love to do it, but I’m not sure to have enough courage to make anything that I wish for actually happen. I don’t like to lie to myself coming up with an endless list of goodness to do if I’m not capable of doing it…so I begin little by little introducing weird ideas into my own head and observe what happens.
From today I’m on the 2 month spending ban – I can buy food, necessary cosmetics, medicine and socks and stuff. The ban is not because I spend too much (although it goes too hand in hand with the main reason) but because I don’t need anything. I have clothes, shoes and all the rest to keep me happy. I have everything I need in my home, which will change slightly when I’ll move to my own flat(that’s somewhat a resolution number two), but then the rental truck, an iron or a pot of white paint will be classified as ‘need’. I have a feeling the 2 months will pass unnoticed.
The second resolution (as mentioned) is moving. I spent 9 months now living at my parents’ house and it’s about time to get my independent character back. I always lived alone, since I turned 18…just left home and lived as I could, and I must say it was greatest thing ever! Now I’m pretty impatient to find a new home, decorate it and feel cosy and happy again. Basically, the spending ban is aimed at saving up for the bank guarantee, hence no irrelevant resolutions, but a coherent and logical chain.
Next up is two issues of Various Sources and already the next one with international points of sale. It’s very achievable, but once again I don’t like to make false promises to myself, instead I prefer to be reasonable and work hard.
I’m sure to come up with several more resolutions in the course of 2011, I prefer so start with something positive and see it evolve… so that was my rant concerning the BIG DEAL of the New Year, which it really isn’t. I’m just happy to see a new year slowly taking over the former sorrows and heartaches. It’s a good year whatever it brings.
Today I felt like I needed to breath the cold digital winter air…I felt that my current position in blogosphere was suffocating me…I took a ride out into the infinite snowy fields and filled my lungs anew…and I felt that I needed to share.

This is a more personal and honest part of what I do. I run an image blog ± (Various Sources) on Tumblr, write a good old fashion blog .origami mon ami since 2006, and since recently publish a fashion fanzine Various Sources. All Brussels-based, I’m no globe-trotter, although I do explore the Northern part of the Old Continent with immense pleasure.

I want to share what I think, see, like, wear, buy, want, make, do, visit, love, know, discover, find, lose, keep, get, give, take, share
