The book I read over and over again is Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie
If I ran the city of Amsterdam for one day I would make the bike lanes wider, get rid of the pigeons (I’m terrified of them!), and soak the whole city in sunshine
The quote I live my life by is “be happy while you’re living, for you’re a long time dead”
I cannot live without my Facebook account
The best piece of advice I ever got was from my high school teacher and they said “you can have anything you want, but not everything you want”
Fun – We Are Young is the soundtrack to my mind.
Marmite or Peanut Butter? Peanut Butter
And now, a few words about the disgusting weather outside… Amsterdam, get your act together!
I Am Sam was the last movie that made me cry (although I usually go through an entire box of Kleenex regardless of what I’m watching… you should see me in front of a Bollywood film. 3 hours of non-stop torrential downpour)
My failsafe joke is A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops. On my desk, I have a work station…
I’m a terrible karaoke singer
The word that best describes me is adventurous
If I wasn’t here I’d be hitting up the sales and making my purse cry
The world is about to end, you’ve got 48-hours to get the girls together, hop on a train, go interrailing, have a few cocktails, sit on the beach and watch the sun set/rise… and call my family to tell them I love them
When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I do is hit snooze on my alarm clock
I talk to my best friends every day.
I’m scared of spiders, bats and pigeons
If I could, every day I would eat a whole cheesecake/carrotcake/tray of rocky road…or all three
My happy place in Amsterdam is at Hole in the Wall on Leidseplein, having a few drinks and laughing with my friends
