This tumblr serves as a digital diary which exposed a part of who I am.
It helps to me inspired to try my best, be happy with myself, and to love my friends and my family. At the same time, it allows me to explore my interest, my hobbies and my passions.
I blog about my life occasionally, and I’m not restricted to anything in particular. But I can tell you know, expect: Witty humour, Aviation, Architecture and heaps of random things you didn't want to hear about my life.
Have a lovely day! :D

"The house consists of two volumes, of which the head volume is divided into three different levels; one level for the children, one habitable level and one level reserved for the parents. The second volume contains both the kitchen and the basement.
By using a splitlevel organisation, all three levels flow over, causing the children’s floor to be halfly submerged and the habitable floor to be lifted up halfly, to advance the privacy of the habitants. Next to the masterbedroom, which is oriented on the east, the parent’s floor offers a study, connected to the hall and providing a view over the Belgian border. The children’s floor counts two individual stairs, one connecting to the hall, one connecting to the kitchen, offering the children a choice of which route they’ll take. In contrary to the back facade, which offers big open windows and thereby connect the building to the garden, the windows on the front facade are made of reglit to create a distance between the habitants and thepassenger. However, all windows are chosen both to inhale daylight and offer view.”
Here’s the mini I made for Genghis Con! It came from a joke I made on twitter a while back about dogs and wi-fi.
I still have some physical copies of the book left so if you’re interested in buying one, send me a message or email or something. There are a lot of ways to contact me.
1. It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.
2. Chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken.
3. Risk comes from not knowing what you’re doing.

Tell someone you love how much you appreciate them. Tell them today. Tell them how much they mean to you, what they mean to you, and how having them in your life has made you feel. Tell them how much you care for them, that you miss them dearly when they’re gone, and how you…
