A Year of Projects revolves around inspiration. Inspiration to live your life in the best way according to you. Inspiration to live mindfully and live it to the fullest.

My name is Kimberley and I am the owner of A Year of Projects.

Follow me on my path to self- improvement, finding my true passions in life and finally doing the things I love to do, not the things that are expected from me by the outside world. Follow me on my path to happiness.

When you ask my family and friends about me they will tell you that I am a dreamer. I have always loved stories and tales so it’s no surprise that one of my biggest (and already discovered) passion is literature.
Collecting and reading books are two things that are always on my mind and whenever I find a brilliant book it’s hard for me to let go.

School & Career
In 2010 I graduated as a Facility Manager at the Mondriaan College in The Hague. In my opinion Facility Management is something you either hate or love. Count me in for the first part.

After my graduation I’ve worked as a sales woman at a jeweler and as an Assistent Storemanager at a shoe store.
Both jobs were far from ideal because of my colleagues so I decided to quit. The stress was too much for me.

In spring 2012 I decided I want to go back to college. In September 2012 I am going to fullfill my longing and become a student at the HvA in Amsterdam.

I have signed up for the four year course International Degree in English and Education. This is an HBO+ course and during the entire course we will only talk and write in English. In my third year I will be going to an English university for one whole year to study literature and the culture from upclose.

I am currently 22 years old and I live in the Netherlands.
In my free time I like to read books, go out for a run, watch movies & tv- shows, cook & bake and write blog entry’s.

  1. this is incredible! i feel like i met my happiness project twin! i look forward to reading all your posts as you embark on a wonderful journey! : )

  2. Agreed, its quite strange how much like myself this sounds… I dream of opening a bookstore/writing…. I very much look forward to following your site.

    • After signing up for WordPress I finally realised I wasn’t alone in my dreams. In my surroundings people don’t dream of becoming a writer and books are things that need to be burned because everything digital is much more important to them. Great to hear that there is still someone out there that shares love for the printed word.

  3. Hey, I have nominated you for the Versatile blogger Award. Congratulations! http://tothebalcony.wordpress.com/2012/05/27/the-versatile-blogger-award/
