The first step (pt 3)

1 year ago, for day 76 by Leonie Jonk 💘

Read the previous bit here. If I'm being honest with you I freaked out a little bit after that. You can't blame me for that, you'd freak out too if you suddenly realised you were stranded in an alternate reality that you weren't sure how to get back from....

Stars inside

I saw her walking through the park on my way home. I didn't often use this park at night as it had a reputation for being used as a cruizing spot and I didn't want to be mistaken for an interested party. She walked upright, her shoulders squared, her head...

The first step (pt 2)

1 year ago, for day 74 by Leonie Jonk 💘

This is part of a longer fiction story (I guess?). Stepping isn't my concept but inspired by the Long Earth books by Pratchett & Baxter, but instead of stepping to a new earth, you step to a parallel version of this one. Sliders meet Long Earth, so to speak ;)...

The first step

"Tell me about the first time." "We've already talked about this, I don't understand why I-" "Humour me. Tell me about it again." I sighed. He didn't have the white coat on today, there was no more need for that kind of posturing. I knew he was the doctor and...

Imposter Syndrome

"Why don't you go to a design meetup or something some time?" He asked before shoving a spring roll in his mouth. "Nah I can't do that" I shook my head and dipped mine in the chilli-sauce to avoid facing him. "Why not?" I shifted in my seat, shrugged and...

Only the best

1 year ago, for day 64 by Leonie Jonk 💘

There's a strong conviction, a long-held belief amongst the tribe I count myself a part of. The tribe of designers. The belief I'm referring to is the belief that whatever we use must be the very best there ever was. That nothing short of perfection will be good enough to...

Wants vs. Needs

1 year ago, for day 63 by Leonie Jonk 💘

The things I want and the things I need are rarely in sync with one another. What I want is to get better, to create things, to work towards a future in which I am both able and have the opportunity to work again. As an illustrator or a designer....

Decisions, decisions

1 year ago, for day 61 by Leonie Jonk 💘

I am not, one might say, the best at making decisions. I'm sure worse decisionmakers exist, we have plenty of examples to remind us of that, but none exist in my general vicinity. Although I can competently make decisions in the professional arena, decisions that involve my personal life are...

A trip down memory lane

2 years ago, for day 51 by Leonie Jonk 💘

I never spent much time wondering about what kind of child I was. I don't remember it very well, besides being teased a lot and loving comic books, there really wasn't much to contemplate. But over the past few days, I've been thinking about this topic a little bit more....

Ride together

2 years ago, for day 47 by Leonie Jonk 💘

Sitting on the back of the bike with one hand on his thigh and the other wrapped around his waist I feel in tune with him. We're a chatty couple, yet despite being unable to speak to each other I feel close to him when we ride. We signal each...
