You should start a blog, they said. It’ll be fun, they said. Sure… But what to write about? I’m no fashionista nor am I a talented photographer. I don’t know anything about make-up or DIY, can’t cook to save my life… I have no real niche I can share with you. But then it struck me. Why not write about what makes me tick, what I can do, what I love. So this is it. I’ve always loved writing. As a child I would make up stories with my Barbie dolls. As a teenager, I wrote movies in my head, starring myself of course. I have filled up many a diary about my life, my loves and my travels. I loved it and still do. So I love writing and I love travelling. I’m also crazy about theatre, the English language, Robbie Williams, polka dots, strawberries, Pop Art, Gin, Dr. Seuss, 80’s music, vintage inspired stuff, Britpop (is that even a thing anymore?) and films. So I will be sharing these passions with you. But also some of my hardships and the lessons I have learnt from them in the hopes of helping others survive them. This is me, this is So Sassie. Enjoy!

Going to college when you’re 40 can be just as scary as going to college when you’re 20. We all ask ourselves the same questions: Will I fit in? Will they like me? Will I be able to follow all the classes and get good grades? And then one especially for those older students: how will I combine student life… Read more →

Life doesn’t come with a manual, it comes with a mother, and sometimes she could really use a manual

It’s been a while since my last blog post. I’ve written most of my posts this summer during Hypnagogia. Which means none of them made it onto this blog. It’s been an emotional summer, and therefore hard to concentrate. But here we go. Hold on, it’s gonna be a long ride, this one. Today is the last day of summer… Read more →
