My name is Rowie, after a certain doctor from the Australian series The Flying Doctors. Not that I’ve ever watched that show, but it’s what my parents told me. Rowie is also a ‘scottish delight’ you can buy at the bakeries. It’s also a name they gave to a drug that guys like to put in girl’s drinks, or so the internet told me. Great. But I digress.
In all of my twenty years I’ve always been a dreamer. My dreams are what caused an introvert to study Journalism. One day I hope to be able to live off of my writing. Give me a pen and I’ll try to sketch the world with words. I remember the words I wrote on my first day of the Bachelor Journalism. “I’ve always been interested in history and I feel like journalism is the history of the future. I want to be able to write history.” So there’s that.
Besides writing there are numorous of other things I enjoy greatly. Actually, I’m hardly ever bored. My main hobbies are: reading (most of the time it’s fantasy, but I also enjoy other genres), working on my story Intertwined (okay, this is writing, but I had to mention it), watching asian dramas (I especially have a thing for South-Korean ones), watching anime (Japanese cartoons), reading manga (Japanese comics), listening to music (Alexz Johnson, Maria Mena, Bruno Mars, LIGHTS and many more) and I like to play a game once in a while (Guild Wars 2 all the way!). I’m a bit of a geek.
You’re probably still wondering why this blog is called The Cardigan Collection? Well, my friends, I’ll try to explain it. Now and then I like to go shopping. I’m a girl after all. For some reason whenever I’m in the store, the first thing that grabs my attention is a cardigan. Some have come home with me, others I have had to let go. You can say I have a thing for cardigans. They’re a great layering piece for every weather and you can style them with any kind of outfit. In my book, a cardigan is always right.
This blog is something I’ve thought about for a while. I have started other blogs, but they never really lasted. All of the sudden I thought about naming it The Cardigan Collection. It was more of a joke, but it’s stuck with me.
Can you guess my nationality by looking at my picture? Polish? Turkish? Italian? German? English? No, no, no, no, no. All wrong. You would not be able to tell by my looks, but I have been born and raised in the Netherlands.
