I hear people all the time saying that living in Amsterdam changed them and, thinking about my own experience, I have to agree.
For example, I would have never thought that I`ll end up keeping an agenda and schedule my own activities. But I do have an agenda now and I must admit that it really helps. And not only that it helps, but it makes me do everything I plan. And God knows there`s nothing more frustrating for me than not doing something that it has been written in the agenda! Of course, applying the same logic, there`s also nothing that makes me happier than a red tick next to a task that I`ve end up doing!
Another thing I`ve discovered here has to do with bags. Ever since I`ve known myself, I hated bags, especially the ones you have to carry on your shoulder and somehow always find their way off the shoulder. But here, I can use a backpack and be totally normal. Heerlijk!
The same goes for high heels and make-up, which are almost unheard of in Amsterdam.
Of course, there are a lot more lessons, but these are my favourites!
