A short intro…
I’m a twenty-something-almost-thirty-year-old living abroad. I’m currently working towards a PhD degree in Psychology, hoping to get a title as Dr. (but only a fake doctor, because I will not be able to deal with emergencies on a plane). Outside my love-hate relationship with my career, I am trying to explore other interests that are just as fulfilling and important for me to be happy. So I would say that is how I came up with the name Seeking Hedonia, because I am simply looking for things and experience that make me happy. Of course, happiness is subjective and has a different meaning for everyone, but for me I have discovered that I find happiness in eating good food (even more so when I can make it myself), in being creative and making beautiful things, and finally in traveling. Besides writing about my day-to-day encounters, I would like to share my interests in this blog… documenting my adventures in food, creative projects and of course my travels (perks of being an expat!).
And when I am feeling uninspired, I try to remember this:
“Live each day as if it’s your last”, that was the conventional advice, but really, who had the energy for that? What if it rained or you felt a bit glandy? It just wasn’t practical. Better by far to simply try and be good and courageous and bold and to make a difference. Not change the world exactly, but the bit around you. Go out there with your passion and your electric typewriter and work hard at … something.
Talk to me, I’m listening 🙂
I would love to read your comments, thoughts, and general enquiries. I am also available for commissioned work as I am opened to opportunities for collaboration.
