Don’t Forget to Smile Today!

Thinking-Out-Loud-Tuesday #3


I don’t really do these stream of consciousness posts often. Maybe it’s because consciousness is so difficult to spell. But, today I felt inspired. So, here goes nothing!

I had this appointment at the dentist yesterday and I don’t know if it’s just me, but a week before the appointment I start brushing my teeth like crazy person. I make sure I get every nook and cranny. No surface will remain untouched. I think my brain actually believes it will make a difference. Cavities will magically disappear and my teeth will become white again. No such luck, but it doesn’t stop me from trying. Then, after I had the appointment I barely touch me teeth at all. I do brush my teeth twice a day but I feel like a have the right to slack off for a bit. I’m not really brushing my teeth. It’s like I’m gently stroking them. Is it just me, or do you guys do this too?

The appointment was fine by the way. My wisdom teeth have decided to grace me with their presence, but it should all be fine. Isn’t it funny that my wisdom teeth are coming in after I graduated! I got my Master’s degree in Book and Digital Media studies. Which is kind of insane, but also really exiting. I also started this new internship a few weeks ago. I work as a copywriter, which is probably why I haven’t been writing as much lately. I will try to get back into it, I promise!

So… What else?

Well, wisdom teeth don’t actually have anything to do with wisdom at all. I just thought I should mention that. In Dutch they actually have a double meaning. The word is verstandskiezen which you could pronounce as verstands-kiezen which would translate to wisdom or intelligence teeth, but it can also be pronounced as ver-stands-kiezen, which would translate to distant position (far stance) teeth. Because they’re in the back of your mouth… Does that make sense? In Dutch it does make sense. I promise.

I feel like this entire post is just me talking about teeth. Well, I hope it made you smile. Not a just barely lifting my lips smile, but a showing all my teeth because they look amazing smile! But, you know, whatever smile works for you is fine with me!

Have a nice Tuesday!

PS. Don’t forget to brush your teeth. You’ll need them for the rest of your life.


You’ve Got Mail!

MailMonday #3

Dear delivery person,

Do you really have to force my packages through our letterbox? Is ringing the doorbell really that difficult? Just because the packaging is ten times bigger than the actual item inside, doesn’t mean you can just fold the packaging and keep pushing and shoving it until it fits through the very small opening. I paid money for those items and you get paid to deliver them undamaged and in one piece. And seriously, that doorbell is there for a reason and not just to mislead the Jehovah’s witnesses.


Have a nice Monday!

A Look Inside My Brain

ThankfulThursday #10


Every once in a while I like to write a post about something that I am grateful for. Granted, the last time I wrote this kind of post was on February 2nd, but we can just pretend like that doesn’t matter. I mean, I’ve been busy people…

Yeah, right Charlotte. You’ve been busy? With what? Sleeping?

Thank you voice in my head that pretends to be my readers. I love you too.

To be fair, though, sleeping does take a lot of time.

However, let’s get back to writing this post.

This Thursday I am thankful for my family. Just kidding, this isn’t going to be one of those deep and sad posts. Although, family if you are reading this. I love you!

This Thursday I really wanted to take some time to thank my brain for always coming up with these crazy scenarios, always turning everything into a story and making the most dull of moments so much more fun.

You do know that hearing voices is not normal right?

Who cares?

I mean, the other day I was preparing dinner. (My mom is on vacation with my grandma which means I’m the house-elf for the week. Just one more day and Dobby is a free elf!) However, as I was preparing dinner I was having these crazy conversations with the food. I was complaining to the timer to stop being so loud! And then proceeded to tell the potatoes not to be so aggressive when the water boiled out of the pan. I asked the sausages that were spitting oil at me why they had to be so hot. And wondered why the knife I threw towards the sink just had to fall on the floor. It was a crazy time!

The truth is, I hate cooking. It’s stressful and never works out the way I want it to. My brain just helps make it more fun and in this world where everything always seems to go wrong, we can all use some positivity.

Hey, look at that. This is a deep post.

Have a nice Thursday.

Ps. I did make some amazing French toast yesterday!


WordWednesday #16

Are you ready? Let’s do this. Here’s how it works: No plan. No ideas. Just words!

When clouds swallow mountains
And water hits against rock
The land will turn green

When mountains touch the sun
And rocks turn into castles
The sky will turn blue

And from these dancing colours
Scotland is born

Have a nice Wednesday!
