Blogposts structure of 2019

Hi readers,

2019 is already a month on the go and the past month I thought about starting the new year with some new changes / adjustments / improvements . An improved blogstructure!

I bought a lovely calendar of Dutch’s most famous quotes brand: Loesje.
And I bought a agenda from the same series as well. In the calendar I organise my blogposts and make some extra notes about all my ideas. The agenda is just a agenda for the personal life and to have a good overview of all the different appointments in my life this year. Of course stuff like deadlines and presentations for study, days I’ll be working as a student software tester, days to spend with friends and family and free time for some events, blogging, sports, household and selfstudying/preparations for everything thats coming up.

The new structure I thought of kind looks like this:

  • Monday #Book review
  • Tuesday #Top Ten / Interesting Ten
  • Wednesday #Series review
  • Thursday #Travel
  • Friday #Film review
  • Saturday’s #Healthy & Saturday’s #Tech
  • Sunday’s #YouTube

Writing a blog post for every day is quite a big challenge and it takes some big effort to investigate and write down everything I have gathered since the beginning of this blog in March 2015. But I am looking forward to this challenge…

How my life in 2019 (probably) looks like?

  • Studying Computer Science / Software Engineering with a particular interest in Data Engineering.
  • Working a couple of days per week as a Junior Software Tester
  • Writing, creating and redesigning this blog
  • Reading for The Bored to Death bookclub in Rotterdam
  • Working on some smaller (tech) projects
  • Socializing with friends and family
  • Somewhere sports… yeah still have to figure out how exactly. Having a warmth-allergy doesn’t make it easy to start something and go recklessly for it without proper guidance. 
  • Travel bits because I want to keep exploring the world, start small and in a couple of years more far away travels.
  • Blogging… writing and designing and communicating

Meanwhie I am also studying, working on some (tech)projects, reading for The Bored to Death bookclub, working as a Junior Tester and developing myself furthermore in (programming) languages.

I am still so curious and feel challenged by improving my languages the next couple of years. Such as:

  • Dutch (literature e.g.: style, words, sentences)
  • English (more fluent, better descriptions of emotions)
  • German (basic)
  • French (basic)
  • Italian (basic)
  • A Scandinavian language (Norwegian or Swedish)
  • A Celtic language (Scottish Gaelic or Irish)
  • Latin (basic), it is an ancient language but interesting for it’s use in history.
  • Greek (basic) and there is old-Greek new-Greek. I’ve had classes about old-Greek, still interesting with all the history and mythology and stuff.

And of course as an IT student I am also interesting in improving in my programming languages and architecture designs.

And I’ll try to use the new WordPress block editor, which looks at first nice because you can embed a lot of stuff.

So this is the ‘Blogposts structure of 2019’ update.

Have you used the new WordPress block editor already?

And what do you think of it?

And what do you think of my new ‘Blogposts structure of 2019’?

Ice Castles (2010)

In my view…

The story of this television broadcasted film (sadly not been in cinemas) is about a young girl who dreams of figure skating and one day becoming a champion. The road to achieve such a succes is hard and she has to leave her family for a while. The beauty of this film is, at a sudden point she does not see that well anymore and she goes back to her family who always support her. From that moment on, she becomes a strong woman who makes her own decisions.

As far as I know, I have never seen acting the people of the top characters before. They fulfilled their role beautifully and sometimes a bit more simple. But this film is a remake of the film Ice Castles (1978). And in my opinion is that time difference not that clear.

The sport figure skating is beautiful! And this film shows that even with bad luck, tragedy or something negative in your life. If you really want something and fight for it, you can do it! And even better when your closests family and friends always got your back

A lovely film to watch on just a weekday evening.

I am not telling about the story – never do in my film reviews – you have to see the film yourself and make your own opinion. I hope you like the film too. It is worth to watch it multiple times.

Blogging 101: Small big update

Blogging 101: Small big update

Hi everyone,

The tasks of day three, four and five in one!
The assignment of day three: I am following at the moment 98 WordPress Blogs and through Bloglovin’ other blogs as well. And I am following the topics: Bianchi / Food / Poems / Rotterdam and Top Video.

The assignment of day four:
I just posted a new post, a new film review, which I hope will be appreciated by my readers.
The link to my post –> Beastly (2011)

The assignment of day five:
I changed my theme a few times. From building to the max in theme Twenty Fourteen, I changed to Hemmingway because it gives me a bit more rest, a bit more simplified. If my blogd would exist of only photos or if the focus would be photos as art, than I would have keep theme Twenty Fourteen. But because my blog is mainly about what I write in textform, I changed it. And integrated with some gadgets and social media buttons
Do you want to see my theme? Here is my bloglink: Sophie’s Web

Have a nice weekend!
