Week (end) Agenda | 21st – 27th Nov

Today I didn’t feel like writing. I felt blocked, slightly irritated, a little bit guilty as well. But I knew I need to do it. I knew I need to keep on going, I knew that commitment is everything in what I do. I knew there’s currently no space for ‘ifs’ and ‘maybes’ in my life. Even when nothing seems to make sense we have to go on.

After some careful self-examination, I understand these feelings have their roots in fear. A lot of what I do makes me have to put myself out there, and oftentimes that is scary as hell. Fear of ridicule, fear of judgement, fear of failure. It is as if all the old ghosts are going loose and making a damn party in my head, out of my fears. And the more I postpone certain tasks that feel difficult to me, the more the seed of insecurity grows. When you find yourself entertaining self-doubt, it is time to change the game. Because everything you feed, grows.

I went to a Yoga class, I went for bike stroll, I had coffee at a new place, and I’ve been trying to connect with myself. I know that if I can get back to this sacred space of truth within me – where there’s peace and trust – I can perform any task, no matter how demanding it is.

So I’m back to the uplifting stuff: this week’s cultural events. Don’t forget that every event includes a link to its website, and free events are signaled as well. To get updates please like Amsterdive’s Facebook page. And if you did it already, you have a place in my heart, of course.

Week (end) Agenda | 14th – 20th Nov

A follow up on the winter blues situation: things are going better! I don’t feel exhilarating but for now I got accustomed to the weather conditions. Truth is: the switch to the cold season made me panic. I’m no winter person but the only way to go is actually valuing this season for what it is, instead of wishing it away.  This means, looking at the things the cold season allows us to do, and embracing them. Being inside of a cosy pub drinking genever and talking to strangers. Getting a shot of adrenaline from the freezing cold outside, while you walk in the park. Observing the autumn colors carefully – writing about them, photographing them! Afterwards, going inside and drinking hot chocolate or glühwein next to a fire. Overdecorating your house for Christmas. Baking more cakes than you are physically able to eat. Inviting friends over to take care of those cakes. And most of all: dedicating yourself to doing whatever it is that you love. This last one is what really makes me go through the winter without getting all depressed.

And for all means, go outside. Go to parties, museums, cultural events. Here are my two cents for that matter. Don’t forget that the names of the events include a link to its website, and free events are signaled as well. To get weekly updates of selected events, please like Amsterdive’s Facebook page. And if you did it already, you have a place in my heart, of course.

Week (end) Agenda | 7th -14th Nov

I’m feeling the winter blues hitting hard. And it is not even winter. It was a sudden change in my exalted flow, and it frustrated me. I was not expecting it – every year I think, “this time it is going to be different” – and I was sure I could trick the biological change-of-season-reaction. As if I could be smarter than “the thing”. External conditions having such an impact on me made me feel silly, like I was not in control anymore. Is that even possible, being in control of life? Anyway: I’m dealing with it. I cry more often, I eat more, I might make use of alcoholic beverages regularly . I’ll keep you updated.

And because we are not here to discuss my winter blues, let’s back to business. Don’t forget that the names of the events include a link to its website, and free events are signaled as well. To get weekly updates of selected events, please like Amsterdive’s Facebook page. And if you did it already, you have a place in my heart, of course.

Week (end) Agenda | 31th Oct – 6th Nov

This week starts with three main intentions: eat in a balanced way, move more ( outside whenever possible), and go see more theater. I was assaulted by a cold last week, and therefore was limited in what I could do. So the idea now is boosting my general health situation the most I can so that not only I feel better, but I also can accomplish more. Which is highly necessary when you wear a lot of hats in your daily life.

As for the theater intention – it really does make me happier, it really does bring inspiration to my life, it really uplifts me. It couldn’t be simpler than this. And I want to cover more of it to the blog. And, without further ado, let’s get to this week’s cultural menu.

Don’t forget that the names of the events include a link to its website, and free events are signaled as well. To get weekly updates of selected events, please like Amsterdive’s Facebook page. And if you did it already, you have a place in my heart, of course.

Week (end) Agenda | 17th – 23rd Oct

Dear all,

Amsterdive is currently being written from a new laptop. Remarkable news because this new machine was in 75% sponsored by Amsterdive’s readers – who happen to be friends as well. More on this story will follow soon. But yes, I’m exhilarating.

And now let’s get straight to this week’s agenda, which is all about music because Amsterdam Dance Event is right there, and the anti-ADE events are there as well. Now, I’m no electronic music expert ( and most events are already sold out anyway), but I’m an expert at good alternatives. Don’t forget that the names of the events include a link to its website, and free events are signaled as well. To get weekly updates of selected events, please like Amsterdive’s Facebook page. And if you did it already, you have a place in my heart, of course.

Week (end) agenda | 10th – 16th Oct

Here am I, one year wiser, and struggling with party blues. Nonetheless, heel veel zin in, which sort of means looking forward to it, in Dutch. Looking forward to daily life, let’s put it like that, which is for sure a sign I’m living one that excites and suits me. And these agendas add on to that excitement. So let’s check the cultural menu for this week.

Week (end) agenda | 29th Aug – 4th Sept

One of my favorite months starts this week. As much as it can be a cliche, September means a fresh start for me, and for Amsterdive that will be no figure of speech. What’s more, I have the feeling this month can really set the tone for the upcoming year, so let’s make sure to start it in the best of spirits, with uplifting events. And, what’s better, most of them are entrance free.
