Sofia was a spontaneous, ultra-cheap one-day trip that my best friend and I planned during our exams. We saw the 15-euro deal (return included!), we booked the tickets, and forgot about it until two days prior to the retreat.

All my girls know the struggle of fall in this country. With the record warmth on October 16th, Netherlands’ weather remains more unpredictable than ever. One day you walk out in shorts, breaking in sweat in your commute to class and the next day you’re fretting to find that thick scarf and double-layered winter coat from the depths of your closet. All in all, it’s a big wardrobe conundrum, where every day you part for lectures leaving your room in a haphazard mess of fabric over fabric over floor.

A vibrant mess of confused thoughts who believes dogs are strictly greater than most humans, I spend my time grouping strings of words or strings of code. As someone who’s technically Indian, but spent her entire life in Belgium and identifies with neither, come along with me for a ride of reckless abandon. I’ll start more opinionated writing once my firearm license is approved.
