Ce'st ne pas une Failure

4 days ago, for day 23 by Leonie Jonk 💘

I find myself back in my periodic "omg social media is horrible and nothing ever works" phase again. It's a recurring theme that fades for a few weeks or months as I focus on other things and then promptly pops ups again with renewed vigour. Usually, the feeling is reawakened...


2 weeks ago, for day 7 by Leonie Jonk 💘

Lately, I haven't been able to make writing a priority. Or rather, I've chosen not to. Every day I think I want to but I wake up and find that there are so many things I want to do more. Things I want to do first. So I throw myself...

Book Review: The Republic of Thieves

2 weeks ago, for day 6 by Leonie Jonk 💘

I'm sure this'll be a great book for some of you and perhaps it was wonderful to write but boy did I NOT enjoy it. I found it a boring slog to read, this may be due to the fact that I'm not interested in reading passage upon passage of...

The fire

3 weeks ago, for day 365 by Leonie Jonk 💘

Tomorrow, in about 2 hours, it will be exactly twenty years ago that a sudden flame shot up in our local pub. It was set off by handheld sparklers. A little spark caught on the old Christmas decorations and in an instant, it was so hot inside that skin literally...

Grumpy non-break

1 month ago, for day 357 by Leonie Jonk 💘

Dimitri has been off work since December 14th and I'd hoped to join him in something of a holiday break. This has only partially ended up being the case though. First I had a commission to finish. Then client emails to sort out and answer. And now I still have...

Press conference # who knows

1 month ago, for day 343 by Leonie Jonk 💘

We had another press conference tonight and after a long time, this one felt like a punch in the gut again. Not because of the regulations, because they are staying the same. (Bars, restaurants and group activities and sports are closed. You can invite up to three people over in...

Achievement unlocked: Gift Sets!

1 month ago, for day 341 by Leonie Jonk 💘

A few months ago, when it looked like I might create my first ever series of paintings, I started dreaming these little dreams. Things I wanted to accomplish, maybe, if my health and life would allow it. When I joined up to the Collective soon after (not the borg one,...

Small victories

1 month ago, for day 337 by Leonie Jonk 💘

While I know I don't need to apologise for my lack of entries here, I am sorry that I don't write here as much as I'd wish. Mostly I'm sorry to myself but also a little to my friends here. Because I like seeing how they're doing and I like...

Aren't we all copycats?

2 months ago, for day 318 by Leonie Jonk 💘

There's something I've been thinking about lately. I've started using Tiktok recently and although I've spent hours swiping away and taking in content, I've only recently started using it more actively myself. It occurs to me that whenever a social media channel has matured a bit (and don't be fooled...


2 months 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...
