Life of an IT student | November 2018

Hello readers,

The month of November was a busy month for study, a normal month for work and the last day of this month is always my birthday! 🙂

The beginning of the month started with a theory exam for the minor ‘Crossmedia Journalism’. An exam about the basics of journalism, thinkers, media in several ways and crossmedia. Nearly the psychology of very interesting!

Another task was to do something original, different, or challenging to present eight journalism pieces you had to write. Several journalism genres ‘passed the revue’. Such as a profile, several interview, an analysis about Instagram feed and the 6 key factors, a behind-the scenes, a review of ‘Babe you got this’ and a live blog of a hockeymatch I’ve seen real life this summer at the Champions Trophy in Breda.

Are you curious for my personal own created magazine with my view and interests in several subjects? It is completely in Dutch… I am curious though for your view on this magazine 🙂 Please leave a comment or note with any advice for it :). Please do not share this file further except for when you have my written permission.

.NET Core application exam

For my regular study I had an exam about writing an application in .NET Core. I passed the theory and for the practicum exam I had to download an exam package and run and debug it to solve the ‘problems’ in the application. Sadly enough I discovered an error which had never occurred to me before: I couldn’t debug the application because I installed .NET Core 2.1 and the application was written and only debuggable by .NET Core 2.0 or lower. I didn’t know how – or the exact commands – to downgrade the software and was not allowed to search for a solution on the internet So everything by head and some assumptions I couldn’t check. Next time I’ll be prepared with a sheet with instructions on how to downgrade or upgrade to meet the package requirements of the teacher.

After my exam period I had several meetings, presentations and stuff to do for the different projects that are going on related to the minor Crossmedia Journalism. Excited for the final sprints in January 2019! Curious for the results of the teamwork and if we accomplish fully what we would love to achieve.

Birthday!

At the end of the month it was my birthday! Yeey still a twenty-something :). Very thankful for the kind birthday wishes from colleagues at work and with family and a couple of friends I had a lovely dinner and a bowling evening with a couple of drinks. Loved the day!

How has been your November month?

Dit moet je gezien hebben op Glow Eindhoven 2018

Afgelopen week was het weer tijd voor de 13e editie van het lichtkunstfestival Glow in Eindhoven. Bezoekers uit heel het land reizen af naar deze stad om de verschillende unieke, innovatieve, inspirerende maar ook vooral mooie kunstwerken te bekijken gemaakt door zo’n 35 lichtkunstenaars uit zowel binnen- als buitenland. Zelf heb ik ook een bezoek gebracht aan dit evenement en heb ik veel mooie dingen gezien. Maar wat zijn nou de 5 beste, mooiste of juist meest inspirerende werken die je echt gezien moet hebben?

Timon Lobeek, 17 november 2018

NR.1 Tower of Light

De Tower of Light is toch wel het hoogtepunt van de gehele route. Op de Lichttoren, de voormalige gloeilampenfabriek van Philips, wordt een magische show afgespeeld door middel van licht, geluid en schaduw. Het laat op een indrukwekkende manier zien wat allemaal gedaan kan worden met licht en de bijkomende schaduw. Persoonlijk vond ik het heel gaaf om te zien hoe er door gebruik te maken van licht en iets simpels als een gebouw een verhaal kan worden verteld en dingen heel anders kunnen worden neergezet dan ze werkelijk zijn. Zo gaf het op sommige punten in het verhaal de illusie dat het gebouw veranderde. Het draaide, opende, ging weer dicht, de muren verdwenen of deze kwamen juist als blokken op je afvliegen. Ook liep op een bepaald moment het hele gebouw vol met water en ondanks dat dit natuurlijk allemaal een projectie is voelde het toch wel erg realistisch. En juist dit vond ik erg fascinerend om te zien; hoe projectie de illusie kan wekken dat een statisch object zoals een gebouw ineens kan bewegen, verplaatsen, veranderen en deze uiteindelijk een heel verhaal verteld.

NR.2 Confluence

Op de gevel van de Catharinakerk is het project Confluence te zien. Confluence is een project dat door Glow omschreven wordt als een “originele videomapping geïnspireerd op de samenvloeiing van rivieren en beken in Nederland, zoals de Dommel in Eindhoven, die symbolisch wordt verkend door de combinatie van licht en schaduw tot vorm”. Kinetische kunst staat in dit geheel centraal en komt duidelijk naar voren. Daarnaast wordt er goed gebruik gemaakt van de totale oppervlakte van de kerk en is deze van onder tot boven verlicht wat het erg grootst en indrukwekkend maakt. Bewegende dansers helpen je als bezoeker door het verhaal heen terwijl er verschillende kleurrijke, abstracte projecties getoond worden. Deurtjes klappen open, objecten vervormen en de dansers gaan de kerk in en uit. Door de grootte van dit project in combinatie met de visueel erg aantrekkelijke projecties maakt het er zeker eentje om te bekijken.

NR.3 TGIC

The Great Indecision Council, TGIC, is een installatie gemaakt door Romain Tardy en geeft bezoekers een weerspiegeling van onze netwerkmaatschappij door gebruik te maken van real time zoekopdrachten op Google. Deze worden omgezet naar visuele- en geluidssignalen en vertelt de bezoeker zo deze boodschap. Het is een installatie die je haast een soort hypnotiserend, angstig gevoel geeft maar ook zeker aan het denken zet. Afgezien van dit achterliggende idee is het natuurlijk ook een erg gave installatie om te bekijken. Door zijn verschillende patronen van licht in geluid die elkaar afwisselen terwijl ze in een cirkel om je heen staan, krijgt het een vrij mysterieuze sfeer wat het erg interessant maakt.

NR.4 Something Blue

Something Blue is een project dat eigenlijk niet te missen is. Zelfs als breng je geen bezoek aan Glow, maar wel aan Eindhoven, dan kom je nog in aanraking met dit project. Something Blue zijn een serie blauwe lampen die samen zorgen voor een doordringend blauw licht dat heel Eindhoven kleurt. Het licht is tot op zo’n 2 kilometer hoogte en 20 kilometer ver nog zichtbaar wat aangeeft hoe krachtig deze lampen zijn. Overal waar je loopt is de lucht blauw gekleurd wat een hele magische sfeer geeft. Eenmaal aangekomen bij het gebouw is pas echt goed te zien hoe blauw het is. Het concept is vrij simpel, maar door zijn grootte maakt het dit wel een van de mooiere projecten en is het erg indrukwekkend om te zien.

NR.5 Gibson

Gibson is een lichtinstallatie bestaande uit 20 hangende lampen. Het is geïnspireerd op het werk van J.J. Gibson die ontdekte dat waarneming meer is dan het zien van de zaken die aanwezig zijn. Waarneming zorgt voor een soort uitnodiging tot actie in de wereld waarin je je begeeft. Deze waarneming en het aanzetten tot actie is wat deze installatie laat zien. De lampen helpen niet alleen met zien in het donker maar ze kunnen zelf ook zien. Ze volgen bezoekers en scannen de omgeving. Je kunt het licht wegtikken, ermee spelen of juist vermijden. Wanneer ze jou als bezoeker zien veranderen ze van vorm en komt er een soort bloemachtig patroon op de grond om je heen. De combinatie van deze lampen, het geluid en de diepgaandere boodschap maakt het tot een erg interessante installatie.

Gibson - Bart van Overbeeke fotografie

Tijdens Glow Eindhoven zijn er nog zo’n 30 andere projecten te zien die ook allemaal erg mooi zijn om te zien, maar deze 5 springen er voor mij toch wel echt uit. Juist de combinatie van licht, geluid en eventuele achterliggende boodschappen maakte dat ik dit de 5 interessantste werken vond om te zien. Glow Eindhoven duurt nog tot 17 november dus mocht je nog tijd hebben is het zeker de moeite waard om een bezoekje te brengen.

Life of an IT student | September 2018

Hello readers,

Before the astrological summer ends, the time of studying or back to work – or both – has started again. New challenges ahead and a new full 10-month journey of duties in study and the challenges in your life to keep things rolling. Oke maybe I sound a bit cryptographic right now, maybe duties isn’t the best word or at least it is not the only important word in this yearly 10-month life journey. You feel you have a duty because you have goals you want to reach, achieve and want to try. Challenge accepted!

The start of the month

September started for me as usual. The first lessons of the study year of a new challenge part in study. The minor Crossmedia Journalism. What has that to do with you as a software engineering student? 

Desire for Crosstech Communicating

You might think. Well, I love to talk, I love to write, I love to inspire people and I love to explain digital stuff. Digital stuff is a broad term but so are my interests. Explaining software or how to use it more efficient. Explaining social media, the know-how behind it, the effects, the different way of using for different purposes. But also closing the gap between the developer and the other creative with a digital product idea. Or between the developer and the end-user. Closing the gap by being the bridge where it’s needed for more happiness between all the people involved and more efficiency in how you spent the time of your life (of which most is work). How shall I call this then…?

Maybe I just have a desire for crosstech communicating <- I just brought that up, no idea if the term exists and otherwise it exists now. With the goal of making lives piece by piece more efficient, healthy with enough amount of rest and happier and thriving because of the efficiency without losing the main focus on quality. Good quality takes time, good performing takes enough peaceful mind and rest too.

Follow up start of the month

The minor started with a nice introduction of theory and challenging thoughts about (digital) communication nowadays and some good examples of magazines, newspapers and crossmedia concepting brands. Very inspiring! A month in my life is rarely without visiting an inspiring talk about life, business, how to’s or just do something!

#Girlboss talk Ellen Hoog

This month I went to the #Girlboss talk from the hockey legend Ellen Hoog. Such an inspiring woman and so nice to have met her in real life! Her books with recipes about good food and exercises to live a sportive active life are one of my favorites and good-accessible to bake e.g. Healthy waffles and do some core exercises or make some energizing smoothies. And her way of doing business, her mentality of just doing and trying and figuring it out but never quit or step back because of fears. No her mentality lesson – which you also need in topsport – is: challenge accepted = challenge completed and hopefully with a winning mood and result!

Halfway the month I stumbled into a new nice challenge of which I had doubts if I had enough time besides studying to make the full commitment. After a couple of days, a meeting with encouraging and inspiring moments and a bit of luck or coincidence, I accepted the challenge: writing for a magazine!

My mind was jumping my heart was bouncing and I just sat still in the meeting with a look of being flabbergasted! Time for ideas, time for connecting the team to work as a team together and time to seriously face reality too: the printing deadline was already in four weeks! F o u r weeks! A new magazine, no format nor brand nor style nor example of previous editions yet. Just from scratch!

So this process started at the end of September and a few challenges for October were already set in the calendar. In my Life as an IT student | October blog edition will this story continue. For now this is a challenge in progress! And what a unique and amazing one!

Did you encounter a challenge in the month of September?

Life of an IT student | August 2018

Hello readers,

Time flies! The month of August had a lot of sunshine literally and figuratively and since then everything goes with a quick flow.

Challenge

August started with a new accepted challenge: working as a junior software tester at an international company. And because it was my study summer holiday, I worked a lot, getting training, getting into a work rhythm, taking part in several company events and so on. It feels like I have found the right place. Meanwhile I still hadn’t been on holiday. And work wasn’t the only challenge. I was already a bit preparing for the minor ‘Crossmedia Journalism’ I am currently following in my studies. What does it have to with my software engineering studies? Well uhm, a more unique combination? Explaining IT to a non-IT’study’ing person? Help other people by explaining stuff? And this way I am creating a combination of my previous studies with my current study and when I graduate I have a creative and technical bunch of knowledge and experience.

Holiday

Summer holiday and due to the previous months, taking rest and move on with new life experiences was the highest priority. Halfway August I started looking for a nice destination for my summer holiday. Where would I go to? What would I like to visit? Many countries and their cities crossed my mind. So much on my travel list, so much on my to-do list and I still don’t call it a bucketlist. Last-minute I decided to visit London! A city way bigger than any in The Netherlands, a history that even goes back to the Roman times. The past couple of months I have watched most documentaries about Britain. ‘The Secrets of…’ series, all seasons of ‘Great British Castles’ narrated by Dan Jones, the great historian who has written wonderful detailed books about subjects such as Magna Carta and The Templars. Can’t wait for new historical series. And during my holiday and when I am travelling anyways, I am addicted to sunrises, sunsets or light-inspired photograph moments. How many airplanes are in this photo?

London

Last time I have been in London was over a decade ago, back in 2007 at an international music competition with the school orchestra. Three days of London and we won the Silver Award of the orchestra’s and the Spirit of London award. This time I would go for a week, the year of ‘Paddington Bear’. Who doesn’t know this lost bear from Peru with always a marmalade sandwich hidden under his hat? And of course London and the Royals and politics. There is so much culture in London, more then I expected or ever imagined. Amazing!  But I won’t tell too much about London in this blog post. Special blog posts with all my notes and experiences from this holiday will come up. A series about London, just like the series I have written about Edinburgh.

End of the month

The last preparations of the new study year were made, my house got a thorough summer clean and upgrade as I always call it. Buying some improvements for my furniture, some reorganization and some stuff to help to plan things through. Because this study year and next one combining with work, social life and some sports and keeping space for blogging and challenges. Will be a challenge to plan and to manage everything. Keeping enough rest in mind and moments to read because besides news and informational reading, I have a reading challenge ahead to finish before the end of the year. The Goodreads Reading Challenge and the Hebban Reading Challenge. Twenty-five books total and at the moment I am a bit too far behind.

How has been your month of August?

Have you been on holiday?

Life of an IT student | July 2018

Hello readers,

It’s been a little while since I have written about Life as an IT student. And this month has had two extremes.

Life goes on and a new challenge! Oh happy day …

The last two weeks of July

July was finally halfway. I challenged myself. Figuring out the different disciplines I came in touch with during the past three years of studying. Figuring out a bit what I like and probably will like even more. I crossed paths with a company and they challenged me! I had my first, real, IT-related interview and a short while after even an assessment. WOW! I feel thrilled again that this challenge crossed my path and that I have been given an opportunity to help with what I know so far and getting the opportunity to expand my knowledge and help then even more! That’s what motivates me every single day. Helping others a little bit as a behind the curtains person and being proud of the product and the work you do and the people you work with. And I finally think…I started walking more precisely in the right direction on the right path. This feels so good!

The month of July in less happier days

The first two weeks

The month of July started with the leftover studyrubbish of June. And I am not looking fondly back to the first two weeks of this month. What an internship documenting for the university of applied sciences rollercoaster. So I am sorry for the disappointed tone of voice in the last part of this blog post which rarely happens, but so this event was unique. Life is hard now and then and life is as it is, so is my story. But it starts in the middle with something more happy and a thing I am proud of.

The internship document, a dreadful pain

The month of July started with finalizing my report/assignment of my internship and later on adjusted it, shortened it with a better guideline and thus I handed it in twice. Accepted? No… “too long”. I am sorry for that, I have written precisely about every process of learning during the internships that lasted together for ten months. Tried to prove everything.

I keep asking myself: why? Why feel I like if I am being punished for writing too long. Being punished for trying to do too good, trying to prove myself. Trying to learn and acquire every competence and subcompetence. I do not like to write a short brief story as if it is not real because where is the proof then? They would ask according to the guideline. “Kill your darlings” is a famous saying for writers. And I know I have to do that this weekend. My internships period lasted for 10 months, 5 more than usual. More than 1000 hours of work on location, more than 260 hours of traveling and another 80-100 hours of work in the documentation and gathering all the proof. I am sorry my internship document last around ~80 pages, but that’s my real story. That’s been me during this experience in study.

The summary, what I learned

We are all just human beings, we make good things and we make mistakes. And we are trying to be as truthfully as possible even in the most difficult conversations. But all parties should try their best. Covering things up is useless because it is no feedback so you can not learn from it.

And for students: no matter the company big or small, should fire you from your internship behind your backYour company manager should always at least try to speak to you and discuss your work before mailing behind your back your internship lecturer. And they should be honest in the final meeting or conversation. I learned that I should say honestly as well that I heard the previous conversation and that I felt like being lied too, right in my face. The trust was lost. Truth is the hardest thing but at least it’s the truth.

And the university should – as they mention in their regulations – always help you when you are in trouble. And if they don’t or a lecturer / coördinator neglects or has a lack of time – which is common now with a shortage of lecturers – fight for it! Never let you being pushed down by something you are not a cause of nor can help with it. 

In my case the university did not take their responsibility, it even costs me at least a full semester!! A full year right now even!! But I can understand it with a lack of teachers and a rare situation… I fixed the new internship myself and I am thankful – as mentioned in an earlier blog post – for the opportunity I got from my last internship company thanks to a study friend and the support of my family and closest people. It took me 4 days to organise it! And it took me three weeks to get a decent feedback and approval by the lecturer/coördinator of the university. Saying “Yes” on Monday and preventing a delay and saying “No” on Tuesday and that for three weeks in a row caused the delay of a full semester! My mentrix? She had sadly no voting right in this situation, I thought she had but it seemed only one person had and our trust in each other is gone for now.

It is what it is, but every person has its responsibility! 

Do I look back joyfully on the internship? In terms of looking back at working at and learning from that last company, yes. In terms of the university who says “It’s gonna be the most joyfully part of your study”? Well…obviously no. The worst middle and after-situation I ever experienced and still experiencing since I have to hand it in for the third time…. It’s the most saddest part of my life in study and where I have been fighting for and still am. And I am thankful for the strong support around me of close family and friends because I could not imagine to reach the finish line of this most dreadful experience in study life without their support.

How has been your month of July?

This has been the most sad blog post I have ever written. I am sorry if you had a lovely happy evening or day and made you a bit sad by writing a part of my lifestory. Never forget I am smiling again thanks to the challenges that crossed my path the second half of July. A day only lasts for 24 hours and a week only lasts for 7 days. Sleeping through it or being exhausted of the effort you have put in something, helps. And most of all: appreciating the small little things in life. I love animals and I love the way they appreciate every single day they are alive and live their lives.

So exactly halfway of July I went to the zoo. And a photo says more than a thousand words.

Life of an IT student | June 2018

Hello readers,

The month of June was a month of scattered pieces of lead.

The final days of my internship had started after I started there in december. That was the physical part because I also had to write on the final report. The first week of June was my last week of my internship. I loved working there and in some way I miss it and in the other way…I am just tired of traveling hours a day, walking a few miles a day, keep up the social life, be there for family matters, running a household and studying besides it.

It’s not like going to work all week, come home in the evening and running your household and social life and family in the weekends. You also need to take some rest now and then otherwise you will be exhausted.

I often saw the same people sleeping in the metro in the morning, just a twenty-minute nap. Feeling tired, looking a bit slobby in a suit and just right before they arrive at their destination looking as if they are completely energized for a day of work. — yeah right. Nah. My style is to feel energized for work and excited the moment you leave your house. And if you have not enough sleep so often, well, try to change something in your life because that way of living is not healthy.

The month started for me in the weekend with The Flying Dutch festival in Rotterdam. Supernice! I really loved the lineup the evening started with. First ‘Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano’ followed by ‘Tiësto’, ‘Fedde Le Grand’, ‘Afrojack’ and the final spot was for ‘Armin van Buuren’ and it was incredible! The jubilee edition and a decor which was very Dutch but I loved the music and dancing with friends and having fun.

The rest of the month was quite silent for me as an explorer of events or little things to do. Halfway the month I went to the Rotterdam Zoo and saw a newborn Californian Sea Lion! Again, for the third time within 18 months haha. And I love strolling through the big park. The rest of the month I am occupied with writing my internship report, studying, family, organizing partly two events which all takes place in the first week of July, or to say: in a couple of days from now. Stress? Yes partly, but I am not really a stressful person. I just like to prepare things right and be a bit organized for all the events that take place.

And the weather is luring me to go outside and live life! But first things first: finishing this year of study before I can enjoy this wonderful start of summer! Walking daily a few miles in the afternoon and with a match of soccer in the evening during the FIFA World Cup 2018, my writings days are not always exactly the same.

How has been your month of June?

Life of an IT student | May 2018

Hello readers,

The month of May was quite a month of opposites. From the daily work at the internship and traveling a few hours a day, to several travel days, day trips and events. Lots of little different things came by this month.

For the internship my final few weeks of work started since December 2017. It feels good to have a little break in the work rhythm right now, but all the stuff I have learned at the company feels even better. It was an incredible journey and my first real external internship for more than half a year as a student Software Engineering. I am still writing my final report on it and will finish the whole subject completely at the end of the month of June.

The month of May also started with a visit to the famous ‘Keukenhof’ or also known as the ‘Tulips Garden’. I have photographed a lot on this beautiful sunny day and this year the ‘Tulipa Denmark’ is my favorite. It was a lovely sunny day in spring.

Halfway the month I visited the city ‘s’Hertogenbosch’ in the province of Noord-Brabant. Except for a stop at the train station I had never been there before. A lovely town for shopping, some drinks, food and cultural events. Every Sunday around noon is a concert in the local theatre and the cathedral of this city is wonderful! When I was walking around as a  ‘tourist-for-a-day’, people were enjoying the sunshine on the terrace and at every pub and restaurant where little festivities going on. It felt like I was walking to a little town with it’s own close but lovely community.

At the end of the month of May I had a few day off from work and went to the Belgian Ardennes. Stunning view of colors, depths, a river and the natural stalagmites and stalactites artwork inside the caves of a mountain. To a castle and hiking to the heights of the Ardennes from the sunshine in the valley to the top and a bit of thunder when climbing down again. It has been an amazing and exciting experience for a few days a nice mini holiday.

How has been your month of May?

Life of an IT student | March and April 2018

Hello readers,

March 2018

March was focused on the exams of study and at the end of the month it was Easter! But inbetween I have been to a special museum night at Rijksmuseum Amsterdam with the exhibition theme ‘High Society‘. It was a really special evening with lots of portraits, stories and a walkaround at the museum. Together with a good photographer I have been to this special event and we ended our tour with visiting the well-known ‘The Nightwatch‘, painted by Rembrandt van Rijn. There were just a few people walking around in that wing too, so we had plenty of time to look at it and the other surrounding paintings. What a beauties and what a beautiful wing too with all the bright colors and details! I had not seen it yet since the museum was restored.

April 2018

It feels like I have time travelled a few weeks and skipped a few days. Life as a student has been busy, as usual, but the last couple of weeks between Easter and the first week of May – yes that is circa a full month – have been a rollercoaster full of closeby extremes.

In study I got a few more results back of the exam weeks I have had, nice :). And I arrived at the last few weeks of my internship. Writing code and code and code I have been literally doing every day, haven’t even written any blog post or word document inbetween. Writing a lot of code means also discovering some errors, trying to solve them and success or fail at the end of the day. Luckily there is always another tomorrow if I could not solve it immediately. And I have learned already so much at my internship! I still have to clarify everything and just make a list of the full workproces for the final internship report.

The next couple of weeks, until the beginning of June, will be more or less the same: code code and code.

In april I have been also participating at the Data Driven Challenge organised by one of my teachers and the KNVI (Royal Dutch Society of Information person). Together with my team Grofgemalen { } we designed a system to be more efficient with the available data and combining it with weather conditions for better predictions and making ad hoc actions possible.

I had the opportunity to pitch twice and I am very thankful to my team for these amazing chances and experience.

The result: we have won the Data Driven Challenge of 2018!

See the full story on LinkedIn:

The end of the month is celebrated with a trip to my brother to celebrate his new job – really proud sister over here. And the month ended with the typical Dutch Kingsday! Family, friends and some nice music made it a happy friday.

The weather in The Netherlands…that were extremes but I am glad spring has finally really started.

How has been your start of spring?

Technology Wearables and Artificial Intelligence

This evening I was scrolling through Pinterest in the category of Technology. Searching for nice infographics because you can quickly and easily learn from those infographics of different subjects. Text combined with images that add some value, help you to imagine what is meant.

I have found some interesting pins such as ‘The Economic Impact of Artificial Intelligence’ – presented at the end of the blog post.

But the most interesting pin is the one of the technologic wearables that are thought of nowadays. This infographic includes:

  • Bionic vision
  • Enhanced hearing
  • Vision impaired navigation
  • Toxic gas sensor
  • UV exposure monitor
  • Wearable translator
  • Smart jacket
  • Enhanced prosthesis
  • Digital interfaces
  • Asthma attack monitor
  • Artificial pancreas
  • Artificial kidney
  • Reproductive health monitor
  • Sensing VR
  • Superhuman exoskeletons
  • Tactile prosthesis
  • 3D-Printed insoles

Pinterest | Top Five Today | Watches – Special Design

At Pinterest I collect many inspirations, photographs, quotes and stuff. Divided into over more than one hundred categories in a logical order, I try to keep it simple and organised all I collect.

Seiko – Quarts Sapphire. The 7N82 version. Productname: SXDG64P1 From Seiko.nl

The choice for the Top Five Today subject: ‘Watches – Special Design’

For my 23rd birthday back in November 2015, I bought a watch from all the money gifts I received. I chose a Seiko quartz watch that is mostly silver and has a golden accents. This is how it looks like:

Lots of people have a sports watch and I would love to have one too for when I am sporting, but my daily and/or classic chic watch is this one.

And when I started with my Pinterest boards, one of the first boards was the board: ‘FASHION | Watches’, shortly just ‘Watches’ . Yes as you see I categorise everything there. Therefore today the top five of watches I like that have a special design and do not always look like a daily watch anymore. My watch would fit in the category of ‘silver’ or ‘golden accents’. So expect something different from the watches you will see below.

What kind of watch do you wear? Or is your favorite?

Additional explanation for the title of my blog post:
Pinterest (the main focus) | Top Five Today (the kind of structure (lists)) | Watches (the board) – Special Design (theme from the board)
And just my five favorites in style with and as close as possible to the theme without particular order.
When a cake is blue but has a ship as well, it is probably more suitable for a nautical theme.
