To be exact, it’s still another 17 days till we move out but I’m so super excited. As most of my followers know, Piper and I used to live in a cute apartment in Amsterdam. I fell in love the first time I walked in and I thought I was going to live there forever. I always think long therm with everything in life. Also that time when I thought I would never lose my job.. But yeh, life happened, still no job but definitely working every day and I wasn’t able to find a cheaper place.. so here I was, leaving my comfort zone..
A huge step, not as big as what’s coming in 17 days, but I moved out and didn’t go back to my mom. My mom lives 1,5 hours away from Amsterdam and for work/meetings/shoots I have to be on the west side of Holland so I moved to my boyfriend’s mom. At first, I couldn’t sleep at night.. A new home, all my stuff were in boxes and my mom took Piper with her. I lost my job, I was so lost with my life for a bit. Damn, it sucked so much. We had a few viewings a week at houses in Amsterdam but since I didn’t have a job and our income wasn’t high enough, we weren’t able to get any of them. It was pretty upsetting. But as soon as I started to focus on myself again, things started to roll..
After a month, several people sent me a story of a girl who was leaving her place. AND YES, WE WERE SUPER LUCKY! AND GOT THE HOUSE! Right now we are shopping till we’re dropping. I’m actually the biggest loser. I buy stuff we don’t need but soooooo love. For example, this KAWS TOGETHER in grey.. and brown.. Yep, not my fault. Kaws’s website crashed and I ended up buying two.. A well, after 24 hours I was able to sell the brown piece (for retail because I am that nice and the price with shipping and duties was already ridiculous).
So my boyfriend and I bought it together, yaaaaay! It symbolises us living this journey called life together. Naaaawh, cute right? I think it is! Don’t you think the piece is awesome tho? It will suit my KAWS SMALL LIES – yes also didn’t need that one but someone sold it new in the box for 250 euro.. What a deal.. (please slap me in the face)
Oh and what I’m trying to say is, it is not a bad thing if you have to leave your comfort zone for a bit. I’ve been there while traveling but this is also an example. I’ve learned a lot again in such a small period of time and like one of my friends said to me: “Trust the timing of your life”. Saying this, I’m glad I didn’t take the job at this other place cause right now, I’m creating my own job!
