3 days ago, for day 302 by Leonie Jonk 💘

Can you be considered a workaholic if you work 2/3 hours a day, max? Does it count if you aren't working fulltime or more? Because, if the number of hours doesn't matter... I think I may be. I was thinking yesterday about why I do some work almost every single...

How do you retain that vacation chill?

4 days ago, for day 301 by Leonie Jonk 💘

We spent a few days away last week and it was so great! Honestly, we didn't do very much at all, but we managed to leave our cares at the door and managed to relax entirely. The first day we just hung out in our hotel room, ordered room service,...

When it rains

3 weeks ago, for day 281 by Leonie Jonk 💘

Not long after I wrote yesterdays entry, Dim got an email from education services. Apparently, he made too much money in his last year of college and he has to pay back 3,5 thousand euros by next month. That's easily a month of income for him so that was a...


3 weeks ago, for day 280 by Leonie Jonk 💘

Well, it's happened. We all knew it would happen eventually, there are too many stories floating around for something like this to not happen to me. And yet. Somehow you hope that you'll be the person that this doesn't happen too. A few months back I got my diagnosis of...

It doesn't always happen in a straight line and it doesn't even look like a curve that peaks a bit higher with every upward climb. Rather it's like a spiderweb of ups and downs laid over one another, creating a pattern that you can only read if you know what...

Upside of a rut?

1 month ago, for day 275 by Leonie Jonk 💘

Another insight I had yesterday is that my life is pretty stable right now. In the earlier phases of my recovery, my days could vary greatly from day-to-day. Every time I tried to create a daily schedule I'd fail. Although my days can still vary now, generally speaking, they are...

Emotionally exhausted

1 month ago, for day 273 by Leonie Jonk 💘

For the past two days, I've been feeling utterly exhausted. Emotionally speaking. My feelings range from numbness and disappointment to sadness and that seems to be about it. Nothing seems to make sense to me anymore and everything feels pointless. I feel desperately disconnected from my art and wonder if...

Digital Artist Alley

1 month ago, for day 272 by Leonie Jonk 💘

I spent this whole past weekend clustered to my laptop screen as I hung out in a virtual world in an attempt to sell my real-world goods. If that sounds strange, it's because it was. If it sounds potentially amazing, it's because it is. Digikomi is the digital equivalent of...

Feeling lousy

1 month ago, for day 269 by Leonie Jonk 💘

Please feel free to look away while I whine for a bit. I feel super lousy. I've spent most of the past week trying to get a lot more rest than usual and taking away the things that give me unnecessary stress. In general, I've tried to let the want...

I'm quitting Instagram!

1 month ago, for day 267 by Leonie Jonk 💘

Well... Okay, I'm not quitting Instagram. But I've decided to stop trying to please the beast. Now, this may seem like a stupid announcement to you if you are: A. Not an Instagram user or B. A casual Instagram user But anyone who uses this dumbass platform with some sort...
