Basically I am just your average Dutch girl, with maybe a few abnormal quirks, trying to enjoy life. I used to be a botanist, not your most average job. It brought me to exciting places, including London to work on East African plants. After 5 years my contract ended and I decided I needed a change, so I retrained as a science teacher. I work on a secondary school near Heathrow, and it is definitely a chnage of scene and a challenge. MY LJ? well, a bit about my daily life, a bit about teaching 11-16 year olds in outer London, a bt about karate, trying to get fit again, loosing weight and being 31 and single.
