It’s summer break and this girl just graduated as a graphic designer!! It’s time to enjoy every single day, make memories, earn money and spend it again. Last year I didn’t make a summer bucket list because I decided to have a boring summer, meaning that I was working all day (and almost) every day.

Next school year I’ll be studying ‘entrepreneurship and craftsmanship’ to perfect my graphic design skills and become more independent.

For summer 2018 I made a list of things that I want to do/learn before school starts.

  • Go to Antwerp
  • Go to Portugal
  • Visit a museum
  • Go to the Humanity House
  • Design something (African clothes)
  • Create a small book
  • Study the Bible
  • Roller skating
  • Bowling with the homies
  • Go to the movies (4D)
  • Try spoken words
  • Beach day
  • Visit a graphic workplace
  • Perfect online portfolio
  • Go through my ‘Graphic Design School‘ book
  • (try) Learn how to code
  • Learn sign language (Dutch and/or English)
  • Earn some money

Let’s hope that most of these things will be crossed off the list this year. Have a great summer!

The Art School Tragedy

The Art school.jpg

For months I forced myself to work on something I wasn’t sure if I was capable of continuing in the future. I produced many ‘artworks’ while I had no clue of what I was doing. Teachers seemed to see my personality in the work I made. They found my work interesting or naive and honestly; I just thought they were crazy.

My teachers convinced me to sign up again for next semester to a class I followed. It’s a class where you’re free to experiment new ways of producing art, expand your portfolio and get feedback from teachers and students of different art schools.

Great opportunity, but the idea of entering a new semester with a ton of stress and sleepless nights left me worried if I was even able to do it. I was ready to let go of this opportunity until it felt like I might make the biggest mistake of my life if I didn’t sign up for next semester. Continue reading

Crushing Into You

diana simumpande

Slowly becoming a grown-up made me see the world and every person around me differently, I also see myself differently.

The Bible taught me that I’m special, fearfully and wonderfully made. My friend also keeps reminding me this and that no one can tell me otherwise because I AM fearfully and wonderfully made.

Psalm 139:14: “I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.”

When I was younger I was fine with being the only one in my friend group who didn’t have a boyfriend, dating or ‘messing’ around. But at some point it also made me feel left out. There were days that I thought I wasn’t going through the high school experience with the handsome prom date you see in movies, or guys drooling over Continue reading




13 days in and I’m not late or punctual either. I didn’t bother to write the highlights of 2017 because I was simply too lazy, maybe lazy isn’t the right word to label it. I refused to write something on the traditional timetable, where everyone posts their highlights on social media before the clock strikes 00.00 and the highlights of that year have lost its meaning. I refused to do so before 2018 began, but here I am behind my laptop typing down the highlights of 2017 anyway.

I met new people & I got hurt by some people, both of these events have changed my perspective on how I view the world and the people in it and how I see myself when I look in the mirror. I used to feel like a victim being accused of not having the right to call herself a writer, singer, and artist. I have learned that sometimes Continue reading

Dear no one


Dear no one,
This is not your love song.

We never ended, we were just on a break. And not even a ‘break’ is the right word to describe the time we spent apart while we never truly (actually never) been together. It was never the ‘I love you’ you hear in the movies, it was more of a friendship that couldn’t tell which way it was heading. Some spins and turns, tears and confusion.
I wouldn’t dare to think more of it then the image I was getting, I wouldn’t. I couldn’t. Because you became my friend, my know-it-all.

There were times when you asked me: “What would you write about me?” I said I didn’t know to spare my own feelings, I needed time and no pressure to see where we really stood. There was a part of me wondering if Continue reading

Dear Reader

Dear reader,

I write this letter to you in the hope you look forward to the future. That your tears may be whipped away and your heart may be glad you let go of the pain.

Beloved reader, don’t fear the things of yesterday, use today as if tomorrow is going to be your last. Enjoy the laughter of your friends, the rain, and the storm. Support those who have little, be a light to those who need it.

Not to be a hypocrite; I lack in doing these simple things myself. But each day God surprises me with a new day, a new change to better myself. A new day to forget about yesterday, to help those who have little and laugh with my friends.

It’s going to be okay, your imperfection will be perfected if you continue to try with a heart full of love and faith.

Although I myself forget these things, there are days when I talk to the Lord and remember how much he does for me.

This letter will be your reminder to smile a little brighter and not to lose hope.

Dear reader, God bless your beautiful soul.

It’s you, not them


For years I have walked around like beauty didn’t apply to me, you cursed me with the words you spoke and broke every bit of confidence I had left. The worst part is that I blame you for everything that had happened because of course, it’s easier to blame the world instead of bruising your own heart with the truth that you’ve ignored for so long.

‘Don’t go there’ but I went anyway, it slapped me in the face, I had it coming.

Don’t get your hopes up when it comes to trusting in the words that come out of a humans mouth. It hurts when promises don’t stay promises, or simple ‘I call you backs’ turn into nothing and ‘I love you’s’ that vanish. But what hurts most is when we’re told not to trust in man but take refuge in God, and we just. Don’t. Listen

Psalm 118:8: “It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.”

Neither am I this perfect person who (always) follows up on everything that she says, and that also hurts. What is the point of saying ‘I promise’ when the obvious thing that you’re thinking about before you even said those words is; ‘this is never going to happen.’

I took some time to reflect on these thoughts and words we Continue reading



The perfect sundress; California weather and loose hair, the wind dancing gently around her hair treating her like the princess she is. She knows what she wants and she knows how to get it, it’s like a magic trick, you must understand it. Kissed by the sun and praises by the wind, it was clear to me that she’s the woman I need to be.

Don’t mind me using the lipstick you like on her, painting my face with the extras that make me seem beautiful. Kylie Jenner lips and Beyoncé ambition, copy past to realize your vision. My hair is a mess, 4c hair is making me depressed, I look so awful in my African dress. Don’t mind me wearing that perfect sundress. Should I cut my hair or let it loose, so someone else could catch it and make their own image of what looks good?

I stare in the mirror and all I can think about is: “Am I even beautiful ?”

The summer is here which means it’s time to workout because all my weight is slowing you down. Can’t seem to catch up with your vision in life my body isn’t shaped like ‘the genie in a bottle’ to make your wishes come alive. I ran and ran but Continue reading

My Diary 

Used to have a diary because I needed a friend. Wrote down what I needed to say, it felt saver on paper because my diary would never answer back or look at me with disappointment.

“You’re ‘sentence’ will be all over the paper..”

Kind of sad but this diary had the only right to ignore me and still give me comfort.

My mom once said there is no one in this world you can trust but your family and close friends. I took that with me since the very day I heard the words flowed from her lips.
It’s personal; something so easy that trees have to die for. Glued together to make it strong so their dead won’t be unnecessary. You’re ‘sentence’ will be all over the paper, the tears you cried marked on the wrinkled spots of the paper. Signed with your very own signature of writing. My Diaries turned into that unfinished business named notebooks. It was a series of stories that never reached the last page, but lingered on the lines of page 105. It was time to leave that chapter behind, a fresh start; a blank paper. I wasted lives of many trees because I wanted a new skin, so badly.

An unpublished creation left in the corner to be passed on to the next generation, to read the pain and the joy of ones past life. But that unfinished business turned out to be the inspiration to a future piece of art, whose  heart has been shattered once. Unfinished + unfinished became one finished piece. It’s amazing what you can gather together from the present to the past.

The things we experienced, stone cold hearts that turned into springs of water became a new cover of accepting who you are. My diary was the closest thing I had to God, that way he could easily read my thoughts.

It’s been a great summer, and I got to do most of the things on my summer 16′ bucket list. Lets walk through it.

The first week I immediately got the change to work, at KFC. Yes right I got to enjoy the fresh chicken, delicious burgers and amazing staff members. It was hard at first but worth it, not only got paid for having fun, I also got to bring home some experience and self-knowledge. I had to work almost everyday, but when I had a day off I tried a different Ice cream flavor; Watermelon and watched a movie in the backyard with my little brother (Think like a man) while also looking up to the open sky full of glowing stars, it was beautiful. And not to forget, Cotton candy at the carnival. But that wasn’t all, that was just the beginning.

While working at the KFC I had a nice conversation with a stranger. That worked out well, because I had no idea how I would talk  to a random person in the mall or something. The same work place but a different person; I complimented my colleague on her glasses and it made her really happy. I love what a simple compliment can do to a person. Since we are ‘writing’ about strangers, I got to hug a stranger at my aunts wedding this person was so sweet she just gave me a hug and I hugged her right back, check.

But what were you wearing that day on your aunts wedding? Glad you asked, that galaxy dress from Monki! I bought it the moment I saw the pink sale sticker and I was the happiest girl ever, that cashier even laughed when she saw my face. But the purchases was a month before summer, I just saved it for my aunts special day.

Still on the subject of spending money, I finally got my first salary and started to get really fashionable all of a sudden. Yes, It was then time for the SALE  (like every summer)because who doesn’t want to buy new clothes after working their butt off and feeling good about it. I bought several things, mostly t-shirts, a pair of Skyblue Oldskool Vans and the skirt of my dreams I always wanted. And that’s when I realised I found my style, sort of.

I like vintage clothing and my family sometimes tell me that if I was born in the 80’s I would fit in perfectly. I don’t see myself fitting in completely because my taste changes over the season. I describe my style as Gely, I am unique. There is no other label to give yourself than your own name. Unique might be a cliché because we almost dress the same, we choose our clothes based on Tumblr posts and magazines, but the way we decide to wear it with our own faces, body shapes & personality makes the way we dress (our style) unique.

A couple of scrolls up, you read about my cotton candy at the carnival. On that day I made a friend that I am seriously thankful for, we can talk for hours about God and what he has done in our lives, you know that moment when you are so happy with someone or something in your life that you can just cry tears of happiness? I had that and we confessed our friendship-level love, that I now would like to change in Confess your love to a sisters in Christ. 💕 

Moving on, As you figured I got the chance to hang out with my friends, the oldies. Unfortunately  not all of them because of work and other activities we had planned. So when nobody could hang out and I had another  day off, I starred on my t-shirt update, turning my white t-shirt from the H&M  into a Cry Baby printed shirt.

I think you’re a contra for not believing me when I write to you that this album made me make goofy  dance moves in the kitchen. My favorite track  on the Contra album by Vampire Weekend was ‘Holiday’, this album is really old and I never listened to Vampire Weekend until I heard one of theirs songs as a soundtrack in Paper Towns the movie.

So here we are, at the end of my summer. Ended it with a BBQ, Trying an item I normally wouldn’t wear and visited the church in Rotterdam. I wore a African printed dress, as they draw much attention I intend to avoid anything that turn heads into my direction to understand the colorful spot in a park full of people. Not to forget I captured some moments to look back at this summer as mission accomplished, but unfortunately not enough! (other pictures will be added to this post very soon!)

It was a great summer and I was really happy when I saw how much I did on my bucket list. Unfortunately I didn’t have the change to buy a helium balloon or make a message bottle, which were the 2 thing I really wanted to do at the end of the summer. But there is always next year if it’s Gods will.

I hope you guys also enjoyed your summer and made great memories, lots of love!

Dear Rosy friend

Dear Rosy friend,

It was 5 years ago, I guess when we met. We don’t see each other that much but we talk enough so I know I can call you a friend. I remember the day you told me I was one of your few friends, we don’t meet people by accident. You encourage me to do things out of my little comfort zone, you help me seek God when I don’t feel like praying. You are always there on the other end of the phone supporting me, a sister in Christ that I thank God for most of the time.

Proverbs 17:17: “A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.”

Your like the flowers of the field, smelling like spring and shining like the sun. You make people melt for God’s love, you are the wife someone is praying for. You capture every moment just right, a book that can’t be finished, a story that is already written. You speak like a wise woman, that you became to be in the last moments. God is using you for a great purpose and molding you into a greater person. We’re only humans working to be perfect like the son of our heavenly father.

You always show me the coolest clothes, tell me about the most beautiful songs and encouraging video’s. We plan awesome trips and make master plans to travel for a good prices.  I am really thankful to have a friend like you.

Thank you God for my rosy friend, she smells like the flowers of the field and shines like the sun. Rosy friend, I can’t wait to see you again.

Dear Future Husband

Dear future husband,

I love you.

I’ve been thinking about how we met

I get all exited when I see cute colors all over the place, I hope you don’t mind that I get all jumpy because of this.

Do you indie pop music and do you have any brothers or sisters ? Dear future husband it’s kind of crazy but I’ve been thinking about you a lot lately, I hope to meet you in church or in a book store one day. You make me happy without even knowing you’re doing so, you make me go sane even though I haven’t met you yet.

I like your smile already, the way your eyes sparkle when I’m  around. The way you praise the lord and thank him every day, the way you talk about Jesus. I am amazed.

I never thought to meet a man like you, so nice, so patient and full of truth. You’re there when I need you the most and you’re there when I’m ready for an adventure, so close. We make crazy adventures, we share crazy thoughts, we are different and at the same time so much a-like. I understand why God put you in my life, you are just right.

When you get to your knees and ask me to come close and do the same to pray, I melt because you want me to understand. You want me to stay focused and pay attention to who’s really important. Or when you read me the bible before we go to sleep and we start our arguments on what we think. Sometimes you work allot but that’s okay, because God is taking care of our hearts, it’s not much about us but the holly spirit working through us, you are still the most precious person in my life.

You are into clichés; buying me roses and telling me how much you love me.We speak the same langues and you like pepperoni pizza, I’m not sure if you like Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough ice cream because you always complain about eating too much sugar. In the weekends when we finally have some time to rest our bones, you like to see me bake banana pancakes, reaching for the cabinet on my tiny toes. Your smile is just amazing, you light up my world. Did I mention when  you purposed? It was wonderful!

Urban Infinity Magazine


Urban Infinity in magazine style ? Why not?!

I have been working on this magazine since January I guess, and now it’s finally done! I’ve been working so hard on this project and I’m proud of the results. This magazine is full of my favorite UrbanInfinity posts and most viewed! I want to thank each viewer for keeping up with UrbanInfinity. It started out as a fun project to keep for myself, but then I got catch up in loving it so much I wanted to search this piece  that belongs to this blog. Here by UrbanInfinity’s magazine.

#3| What is love ?

yes1 Corinthians 13:4-7: Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

In the last 2 months I’ve learned a lot about loving others, ourselves and about how to be patient and it’s time to step up my game! Not just me, all the beautiful ladies in this world.

Love is crazy, “we love because he first loved us”

That moment when you feel like you’re not good enough, wrong. When you don’t feel beautiful, wrong. When you feel useless, wrong!

You are good enough for God but you can always be better, you are beautiful enough because he created you and you are never useless because God has always something for you to do or learn.

As a lady we have to know and do certain  things before we get married. We need to learn how to cook, be independent, take care of the house hold, children etc.

A friend of mine send me a ceremony: No More Sheets by Juanita Bynum. The most beautiful thing that stayed with me was “you need to treat your man in the way you treat God.” (not exactly in those words) I never thought of relationships in that way; loving someone the way you love God. It makes sence but I never thought about it.

When you’re single, in a relationship or struggling with a break up or divorce, listen to this ceremony even if you’re not. It can open up a whole new world for you, I know it did for me.

After watching this ceremony I realised that I wasn’t ready yet. Not only am I just to young, I have a lot to learn before I can take care of someone I am going to spend the rest of my life with. We are never finished learning new things in life but that doesn’t mean we won’t end up with the man of our dreams or an even better person that we could ever dream of. Take things slow and let God do the rest, you just keep on focusing on preparing yourself for your man. Gods time and not ours.

A simple Apology

Let’s start with a simple apology,

things are clearly going to change because of school. High school is over so it means that I’m going to start a new life, in a new city, attending a new school.

I love writing, my writing isn’t always as good but I will continue doing what I love. Going to school and having homework every day, it won’t be a 1, 2, 3  easy thing for me to do. two weeks of school and I’m already packed with homework, not because I couldn’t finish things on time just because everything is way harder than I’m used to which means STUDY.

I’m thankful for those who stick with reading my blog, refreshing my page in the hope something new comes up. I promise to try my very hardest to give you guys something you can learn from or enjoy.

I thank God for giving me this gift of writing, singing and drawing. It’s so stupid to admit that you can do something to people because it looks like your better than them which is not true everyone is good at something and that took me a while to learn so, I’ve learned that you have to stick to what you love and put all your power into it because when you stand for what you love and practise, everything will be okay. And for those who don’t know what I’m up to, I’m going to study Design for my first year and then hopefully Fashion & Trends so I can’t wait to show you guys my work in the future.

2# | Summer ’15 – Bucketlist


  • Stereo Sunday 
  • New book
  • Family visit
  • Swim
  • Youth Leader?
  • Roller skating
  • Polaroids
  • Drawing 
  • SALE! 
  • Learn
  • Disney Movies
  • Bible

Okay so summer is over (moment of silence..)

(Late on writing this post, I know..) I couldn’t do everything on my list! For one I did go to “Stereo Sunday” but the name was Zomer Park feesten a.k.a Summer Park Celebrations. (I mixed it up) It was fun but I’m never going again, haha. Going through The Netherlands its weird weather and sweating like I never did before I decided to swim more than twice this year, a new record! My lovely next door neighbors came by to swim in our backyard and it felt like the perfect moment to take a Polaroid. I couldn’t buy a new book which made me upset. My first time in Africa went great and meeting my family was the best part! Angola| Wanderlust

Everyone was on vacation or working, there was hardly any time to talk about some ideas for the kids in church and now that school started my friends and I need to plan this when we’re all together. I did something stupid this summer.. I did not bring my roller skates to Africa when I should have, there was perfect ground where my aunt lives!  Probably something to remember for the next time. But when I got back there was plenty of time to practise and it’s going better and better.

The same thing with my drawing, I’ve gotten better and I’m proud of it! It took me years to be confident enough to draw and know what I want to draw, since this year I decided to do what I want and not to be so focused on trying to draw something or someone. I remember someone telling me I should stop drawing because I’m not good enough, I will never go to England or America or even be good at what I like doing in my spare time. I know I can do it and I will learn how to be better in it, If I weren’t good enough I wouldn’t be accepted by a graphic school let’s say this school year started pretty good and I can only Thank God for this experience. SALE! My friend came over to shop and it was fun, I had my first Bubble Tea and I bought a top from the H&M not much but I did score something on sale.

I’ve learned that everything you do or say can affect your life, of course I already knew that but I never really thought about it. Once I learned this I started to be more positive and hopeful, organize things better and create positive thoughts. Instead of wishing I started acting.

Mark 11:22-24: “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered.  “TrulyI tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. “

I watched Brave for the first time! It was an amazing movie I loved it just like every other Disney movie, I also watched other Disney movies. I had a great summer didn’t do allot but at least I got to do some thing from my bucketlist. As for the bible I just read it randomly like I usually do and it is the best book ever written just like my pastor said haha (:

I hope you all had a great summer and a good start at school!

Ps: I luckily got to see Paper Towns in theater!!  Paper Towns 4# Paper Towns The Movie

Dear lady With The Pink Bow

Dear lady with the pink bow,

You love pink as much as you love baby blue, mixing colors is your favorite thing to do. I admire your work but you’re really lazy when it comes to doing homework. You’re different from the rest, as everyone is unique you made a little plot twist. People think you’re weird because you have this secret love for dolls and you reveal it sometimes without knowing your being exposed, which makes me think of Aria from Pretty Little Liars but I’m not writing this to compare you to other artists.

You paint with pictures that aren’t even yours, you collect them and re-blog them on that one thing called Tumblr, you just love it and it shows who you really are. Sometimes soft, crazy, mysterious but also hard to read. Lady with the pink bow, you love odd things you can’t work with, like a pencil because you’re too scared to draw the world and afraid that people would judge you for your work. I noticed that things changed in the past few moths because you started to realize who you truly are. Don’t be afraid to pick up your Polaroid 600, and take pictures like no other. Because we learn from our mistakes even when they coast money, your work is timeless and goes from the 60’s to the 90’s, back and fort with a touch of modern tones. I heard that people still ask why you love old things, and to be honest I guess it’s because you’re scared for new things, you rather hold on to your memories instead of making to many new ones and forget the oldies.

People find it hard to read you, you’re not an easy person to talk to. You’re quiet in a packed room full of strangers and you barely start a conversation, even when it’s just 4 people sitting on the same table. If they want to know you a little they have to spend at least one week with you to know your favorite sweaters. Your taste in music and tea with a good book, sunsets and cartoons, movies and clothes. Why do you make it so hard for us to get to know you, it’s like talking to a wall that only cracks open when the right kind  of sunlight hits the perfect spot. But lady with the pink bow, it was nice to visit and chat over a cup of tea because after a week it was all worth it, it was really nice to get to know you.

Summer ’15 – Bucketlist


“I’ll finally see a summer breeze blow away a winter storm, and find out what happens to solid water when it gets warm. And I can’t wait to see what my buddies all think of me. Just imagine how much cooler I’ll be in summer.” –Olaf, Disney Frozen

It’s summer! Living in The Netherlands you deal with weird weather, after some rainy and barley sunny days the sun is shining brighter than ever.

So what are we going to do in this summer of 2015? I already know what I kind of want to do, here is a list of things I’m looking forward to and there will hopefully be more things to do, but let’s live in the moment.

  • Stereo Sunday, this weekend I’ll be going to a festival. It’s not really me, but It will do no harm for one night.
  • New book, don’t judge me. Reading can be fun when it’s to hot to even go outside. And this year I’m going for Since You’ve been Gone by Morgan Matson or Let’s get Lost by Ali Alsaid.
  • Family visit, Angola here I come! After 15 years I’m able to see my lovely family in Africa.
  • Swim, I’m not a swimmer and I have to do it at least once a years because my little brother really wants me to.
  • Youth Leader? I’m going to team up with some friends to brainstorm about new activities for the kids in church.
  • Roller skating, of course! I have to practice though and it’s the perfect weather.
  • Polaroids, now that I’m getting better with taking Polaroids, it’s time to capture beautiful moments with my Fujifilm Instax mini 8.
  • Drawing, some practicing on my drawing skills. I’ve been going downhill, it has been forever since I drew something with patience.
  • SALE! It’s time to score some new outfits (:
  • Learn, I know school is over but I want to least learn about something I didn’t know.
  • Disney Movies, because we are never to old for Disney!
  • Bible, I’m going to choose a topic like friends, love or family and do my research about it in the bible.
P.S. Since I’m not going to be here this summer I won’t be able to see Paper Towns in theater! No movie no review, yet. But If you guys are going pleas tell me all about it, I’d love to here/read all the details. Have a nice summer!
