There are moments your life will be on a roll and everything will be great. But that might not be the case all the time.

You might be in a moment in life where not everything is great and on a roll. That are the moments it might be difficult to realise you can not control everything. So is great to have control over some things that you can control. You how neat and organized your own house is.

There will be those moments you need to feel incontrol of something. andthen something as simple as a clean house or reorganized house could be a solution. No need to change he whole house but just keeping it clean and keeping it organized can help.
It give back that sense of control that you feel you have lost.

These are spaces that can easily be clutterd with a lot of unused stuff that fills the space. Even though it does not give you any joy. If that is the case the item should go. Do not keep things just to fill a space in your wardrobe. It is better to have a wardrobe that is a lot more empty but all the things in it give you joy and you love to wear and use.

  • When you haven’t used it in a long time

How does Gardens by the bay improve life in Singapore?

The park opened in October 2011.

Gardens by the Bay is a park in Singapore that helpt with the strategy to make Singapore a garden city. A city in a garden. The goals is to improve the quality of life. The want to do this with the flora and founa in the city.

This park has futuristic trees that are incredibly high and made out of metal.

Everytime I look at this it makes me want to go back. The gardens looked great during the day. But during the day it was to warm to walk in the sun.

Amongst the high buildings, the trees are sometimes hidden. Which is incredible to do that with such a height.

Humans are also animals which we tend to forget. We started to live in high buildings amongst other high building. We forgot to implement nature into our cities. I think it is absolutely wonderful that the government in Singapore is trying to bring nature back. The city is also incredibly clean which made me feel great to be there. I live in The Netherlands and here is quite a lot of litter on the ground and next to the roads. If I am honest to myself and you, I am a bit of a germophobe. It does not affect my daily life so it is not so bad. But that is a reason I love Singapore. Even with all the cars and people, it felt really clean.

Explore Breda

In the first few weeks of our first year, we got the task to explore Breda. And make a 2D design of 30cmx30cm about it.

So I took a few photo’s of the lovely art that you can find in Breda.

While I went through the city I noticed that the city was quite clean for a city of this size. But it was mostly clean in the parts that people see. When I went to the parts where people live and you only go if you need to be there it is less clean.

After that, I found a site which showed soil quality in the city. I found out that the ground that our school is on is potentially serious. I can hear you wonder what that really means. (I still do not know this.) To find an answer I send an e-mail to the municipality which sends me a file with information about the property. Unfortunately, it did not really help. So I worked with what I had and made the following illustration.
