I’m so tired.

1 year ago, for day 70 by Freya πŸ’Ž

Trigger warning. Like many people today, I woke up to the horrific news of Sarah Everard’s potential remains found in a forest in southern England. I opened my Instagram to hundreds of posts, mostly from women, reposting ways of setting off an alarm so loud on your phone that it...

Where are the women's bathrooms?!

1 year ago, for day 65 by Freya πŸ’Ž

This is a strange subject today - but hear me out ;) One of the things that I don't think I've ever really thought about, that I've just kind of assumed is the norm from a young age, is the absence of women's bathrooms in public spaces - Amsterdam specifically....

Cooking for the soul

1 year ago, for day 64 by Freya πŸ’Ž

A running joke a girlfriend and I have is documenting our so-called 'depression meals'. Depression meals, or meals you make when you're feeling absolutely worthless, require absolutely no creativity, enthusiasm or effort, which are three of the things you usually lack when you're in the midst of a depression or...

I May Destroy You

1 year ago, for day 58 by Freya πŸ’Ž

Trigger warning - SA There are some TV shows which get so hyped up that I end up staying away from them - I think it's the high expectations that come along with it, the disbelief and then incredulous gasp that people give you when you admit that you haven't...

Meat is murder? I mean, yeah.

1 year ago, for day 57 by Freya πŸ’Ž

Growing up with German, French and British influences all around me, meat was pretty much secured into my everyday diet since I was a small kid. Bratwurst, roast chicken on Sundays, SchwarzwΓ€lder Schinken in sandwiches when we went hiking. It was in every meal - you would never have a...

A month in - nearly

1 year ago, for day 54 by Freya πŸ’Ž

The company I work for has scaled up by 113% in the last year, which means that there is a constant stream of HR emails welcoming new team members, onboarding and introductory sessions via Zoom. I myself was one of these newbies not even a month ago - in fact,...

More notes on the internet city

1 year ago, for day 51 by Freya πŸ’Ž

continuous notes on the internet city The internet as a city Web design as architecture Personal websites as homes Websites are places Corporations dominate the internet Standen, on the other hand, sees this as a corporatization of web design. β€œThere are consequences, both social and aesthetic, of a...

Trend forecasting during the anthropocene

1 year ago, for day 49 by Freya πŸ’Ž

This week, my teammates and I drafted, cut, created and published 16 creative clothing categories for our platform, from the sorting of clothes to the copy and to the ads. When we create the categories, which is usually a week in advance, we look at some things for trend forecasting:...


1 year ago, for day 47 by Freya πŸ’Ž

The last 48 hours have been a bit off for me. I woke up on Monday morning with a feeling of dread in the pit of my stomach, and I couldn't quite figure out why. Everything in my life right now (touch wood) is stable enough - apart from everyday...

Moving out, up

1 year ago, for day 45 by Freya πŸ’Ž

Today, for the sixth time in the last five years, I moved apartments in Amsterdam. Over these last years I've packed my things, despaired at the volume of shoes I own, thrown out old papers that I thought were important and bribed a friend to drive my stuff to the...
