Life is not a journey to the grave with intentions of arriving safely in a pretty well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming … Wow! What a ride!
I just wanted to let you know that I am on my way to Veerle’s memorial service. If you want me to tell you know it went, just inbox me (preferably off anon, as this is not everyone’s business, just didn’t know how to get in touch with you otherwise). I hope you don’t mind, that I used the “if you feel small and like you can’t make a difference, spend one night in a tent with a mosquito” proverb, it just sums her character up so well.
Have a nice day (or as nice as it can get after this) x
Yes that definitely sounds like her! She had the best comparisons, weirdest ideas and craziest stories. Thanks for sharing this with me, it made me smile. The first genuine smile in a long time
Hey, I am so sorry you had to find out this way. She meant to much to all of us that I can fully relate to what you are going through. I spent the first week crying all day, even on the way to the airport and the plane home, just couldn’t keep it together for longer than the time it took me to say “please leave me alone” to any stranger offering help. I know people say “it gets easier” but I honestly haven’t gotten there yet, so I can’t be of much help. If you want to talk about her, just come off anon and I can reply privately? I would love to find out who you are and what you guys talked about :) She was a great friend, and inspiration and a role model to a lot of people, and it makes me proud to having had the chance of being one of them. We are the Veerle-Elite. Lots of love and stay strong! xxx
These days are not getting any better. Excuse me if I go MIA for a few, but today my world decided to stop existing the way I was used to…Adjustments and amends are in order but that will take a while.
So if those few followers I managed to gather decide to check up on me, I will reply eventually, but not immediately…
One thing that makes gloomy days pass by faster is music. I spent 1 hour today in front of my tutors closed office door listening to music and it felt like 10 minutes. A tiny bit of promoting: Check out trebuchets, awesome music got me through the day. But psst, those guys were in my class today and they have no clue…I’m not a creepy stalker!
Anyways! Have a nice life, get drunk for me, go out for me, get bad/good grades for me and most of all enjoy life for me, until i get back. Thanks x
