What I do (a #personal #blog piece)

What happens to me at work:

'Can you work for me next Friday?'
-'To answer that question I need more information: Where is it? What are the working hours? What do I have to do? How much does it pay? Does the pay include travel expenses? Should I bring a costume? Do I go by public transport or will you arrange for a ride? Will there be food and drinks or do I bring my own? Is there a dressing room? Is it a private party or a business venue or just a night out? A birthday or a bar mitswa? Just give me some basic information and I'll give you my answer.'
-'Why do you want to know?'
'I like to know what I'm getting myself into.'
-'Why won't you tell me right now if you'll do it?'
'I want a bit more information than just a date so I can see if it fits my schedule and if it's worth it for me. Why do you want to keep that data a secret?'
-'I'm not keeping it a secret. I just don't want to let you know.'
'That's the definition of 'secret'. Do you understand I need the info?'
-'Yes, I do.'
'So why are you reluctant in giving it to me?'
-'I'm not.'

It appears some people just don't get it...

On my LinkedIn page (click) I post things about productivity and writing. Mostly. It's also where you can find my resumé.
Google+ (click)I use mostly to share my love for movies and news for nerds. (Still trying to get the hang of working with Google+.. I welcome any serious tips. Even not so serious ones)
On Pinterest (click) you can find most of my selfmade 'lolcats',
My Tumblr (click) page simply reflects my Instagram posts.
On Twitter (click) I share all of the above...

As some of you may know I'm an entertainer. As such I get to see many different people, go to many different places and sometimes do things I started to consider normal but others would love to put on their bucketlist.

I also work at a beer brewery (click): incoming and outgoing invoices and social media.

For a couple of years I worked with children: afterschool and summercamp. I have even been a councilmember (for the Dutch Socialist Party). Yes, I once was a politician!

Next to that I worked as a volunteer for half a dozen foundations and groups. These days I scaled that down to one: the neighboorhood commity. I have three kids (that I know of): my daughters (15 and 16 now) live with their mother. My son - who's 21 now - moved out just a couple of months ago to live near the university where he studies to become an engineer. My girfriend had a business in bamboo homedeco products. Check it out at Rataplan Design (click)!

I also love to write: blogs, columns, working on a novel and a lot of short stories.

Here's me:

So, now you know a bit more about me.
