Forever 27 Club is a name for influential artists whom have passed away at the age of 27. People in this club are: Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Kurt Kobain and many more. Yesterday it became clear that Amy Winehouse has now joined this club. Since I’ve turned 27 two weeks ago, I’ve thought a lot about this number and life in general. The passing of Amy Winehouse is seriously a wakeup call for me...

People around me often find me a bit weird and to be honest, they're probably right. You can’t put me in a box. I often dislike things that many people do like and I like things that ‘normal’ people hate. One of the ‘odd’ things that I like is to work. I don’t find myself to be a workaholic, but apparently my friends don’t agree with me.

A friend sent me this picture the other day and said that this has me written all over it. Loesje is a well known phenomenon in the Netherlands that is popular for its one-liners. ‘Troost je, ik snap meestal ook niks van mezelf’ means: Comfort yourself, most of the time I don’t get myself either.
I do understand why my friend has sent this picture to me, because I am a complicated person. Truth to be told, I don’t get myself most of the time so I how can I blame my friends for not getting me? The way how my mind works is a complication of itself so yes, this Loesje phrase has me written all over it indeed!

|I've got one year left to fulfill my life schedule!|
When I was younger, I’ve set out a whole schedule for my life: graduate at 21, meeting the one during university, getting married at 24 and pop all my kids out by the age of 28... Well, none of it came through and since I’m turning 27 tomorrow, I’ve exactly one year left to make my last deadline!

I’m in transition to make a couple of important decisions concerning my future. These are the decisions that you’d rather avoid to make, simply because you don’t know where the road will lead you. This quote is a reminder for me that everything will be okay in the end. The decisions that I’m going to have to make won’t be easy, but I need to keep in mind that everything happens for a reason.
Yes, an optimistic Bao-Nhi for a change, at least I’m trying to be. As soon as I’ve chosen my next path, I’ll definitely let you know how the outcome of my decision turned out to be!
