Are you more likely to avoid conflict or engage it head-on? It depends, but if someone`s being treated in an unfair way, I can`t help but feel it so much. Unjustice is not something I can just watch happen right in front of me. I think it`s important to not create unnecessary conflicts in life, but I also think it`s important to be able to engage in a conflict when it`s needed.
Do you have a whole lot of acquaintances or just a few very close friends? Why? I have a few close friends. Sometimes I catch myself wishing I had more friends, but then I realise that I just got so many new friends in Maastricht. I miss them. Weird how we`re all back home now and doing our own thing. Why I have a few close friends? That`s kind of what it has been like the past few years. I guess you could say it`s because of things that have happened in the past? I don`t know, it just feels that way. At the same time I think it`s better to have friends whom you actually really know, instead of having a lot whom you don`t know where are at.
What’s your all-time favourite town or city? Why?
AMSTERDAM!! I was there four times during my exchange semester and I can`t wait to go back soon. Next time I want to have more days in the beautiful city. The streets, the canals, the roads, the atmosphere. I wanted to visit Amsterdam so badly for years and I finally got to summer 2017. I was super excited and it`s odd to think that I`ve spent some time there five times by now. I waited so long and within two years I`ve already been there so many times. I`m glad that Amsterdam isn`t that far away. Ah, a big reason why I want to work so badly this summer is that I want to get away from here again and just the idea of travelling makes me so happy. My exchange semester definitely made me more addicted to travelling.
How difficult is it for you to forgive someone who refuses to apologize?
It`s not difficult. I don`t know if this is going to make sense, but I don`t feel like I “have” to forgive someone because I`ve “already” done it. I don`t get so mad or angry at someone that it gets to that point, but I feel very disappointed, frustrated, sad and let down. It is even more frustrating when the person in front of you doesn`t ackownledge that they might have hurted me or doesn`t even want to listen. On the other hand: an apologize isn`t always enough, for me actions speak louder than words.
To what extent do you trust people?
At the end of the day: quite little. It`s not that I`m not nice to people or that I never believe what they say, but at the end of the day I get quite sceptical to people and wonder what their true intentions are and if they realise how much harm little things also can do. I keep believing in the good in people, but trusting has become too difficult.
What do you think about more than anything else?
Right now? My future. I wonder what it will be like, what my career will look like, who I will be friends with and what my situation in general will be like. Sometimes it worries me, sometimes it excites me.
