  1. The metaphor of the horse

    Imagine an animal that you are not interested in owning and taking care of (let's say, for example, a horse). One day, two random people give you a horse without your consent. You resent those people because taking care of a horse is expensive and physically exhausting. When you complain about having to take care of the horse, the people who gave you that animal tell you that you should stop being immature/selfish/ungrateful, that you need to learn to love your horse, that your horse is your responsibility, ...

  2. Cleo died

    Hello everyone, I am writing this blog entry because Cleo, my mother's oldest dog, died yesterday. She was 15 years old. My PXR username comes from her name.
    Cleo had serious breathing problems, so the vet euthanised her. I think that's better than dying of suffocation. Although I'm grieving, I'm glad she is no longer suffering and I'm thankful I got to know this kind, lovely and adorable dog. She will always have a special place in my heart.

    Rest in peace, Cleo (February ...

    Hello everybody! Here is the third (and final) part of my travel journal (I am posting it on PXR sooner than expected because I purchased in-flight Wi-Fi) :

    Sunday, July 28, 2019 :

    Spoiler:
    For breakfast, I ate coconut yoghurt, some bread with Vegemite and a banana. It was delicious. Then, I explored the Internet for a while, I got ready, I bought a sandwich at a Subway and I took the train at Flinders Station. On the train, I wrote letters for my Aussie friends.

    Hello everybody! Here is the second part of my travel journal :

    Wednesday, July 24, 2019 :

    Spoiler:
    For breakfast, I ate almond yoghurt, some bread and an apple. It was delicious. Then, I explored the Internet for a while and I got ready to go to Xanthe’s house.

    I left the apartment at 10:30 AM and walked to Flinders Station. On the way to go there, I stopped at a Subway and bought a sandwich there. As it was loud in the station, I used my noise-reducing earplugs.

  6. Preparing for jet lag

    Hello everybody! As you already know, I'm going to Melbourne soon and I really look forward to this trip. :D
    However, I don't look forward to the jet lag. So, I'm going to start shifting my sleep schedule a few days before my trip in order to reduce the jet lag.
    I thought I could write a blog entry about this, so you won't be surprised if you see that I'm online on PXR at unusual times. :)

    Here is when I plan to sleep (in Brussels time) once I start shifting my sleep ...

    June 25, 2019 :

    Spoiler:
    Shortly after I landed at Bordeaux-Mérignac airport in the afternoon, the passport controller called me by my first name, which I really appreciated. Then, I took the bus to Bordeaux-Saint-Jean train station, where I happily met up with my friend. I recognized her immediately thanks to her Angry

  9. My Innovation & Change class

    Hello everybody! Today (April 24), during the Innovation & Change class, I had to talk about a positive change in my life, one that I am proud of. So, I took a deep breath and said something like :

    "Two years ago, at the beginning of 2017, I wanted to improve my English and to make new friends. It is easier for me to make new friends online than in real life. As a result, I joined an English-speaking Pokemon forum because I love Pokemon. I didn't know anyone on that forum ...

  10. Second update about my semester in Ghent

    Hello everybody! Easter break has just started for me and I thought that it was time for a second update about my semester in Ghent.

    All my teachers are really nice to me, which is great. One of them (the accounting teacher) even distributed dried soybeans to the students a few weeks ago, which is very kind of her. The soybeans were delicious. :D
    I would also like to say thank you to everyone who replied to the survey for my Innovation & Change class. Your answers were ...
