Dig a little deeper
So… my name is Jolanda, but for the past 6 years I went by the name Jade on the Internet because I got tired of the way people pronounce my name in other coutries. Eventually I got over it and started going by my own name again. I’m 100% Dutch, although my father’s family has roots in Hungary and France.

I studied Educational Psychology and graduated in July 2016, so I have a title (Master of Science) of which I’m very proud. Currently I’m working full time at a company that develops e-Learning for Syrian refugees and other foreigners, so that they can learn Dutch.

I’m that type of girl that usually likes some alone time with a good book, a Disney movie or TV series. Having some alone time is pretty hard with a fiancé around the house, but it’s lovely to spend time with him too of course. His name is Rick, we met in September 2015 and it was love at first sight. He is a mechanic, and just about the funniest and sweetest guy you will ever meet. A little hyperactive at times, but then again never boring. We got engaged on July 26, 2016, in Walt Disney World, Florida.

And oh yes, I’m probably the biggest ‘Disnerd’ (Disney nerd) you can think of. Movies, books, CD’s, even some clothes and two pairs of Mickey ears (purchased in the parks), I have it all and I’m never ashamed of it. I even have my own little section in the house filled with Disney stuff that Rick can’t touch, haha.

When it comes to music, I have a few artists and bands that I will always adore. Ayumi Hamasaki, Koda Kumi, Kalafina, and Michael Jackson are my absolute favorites. Depending on my mood, I also enjoy music by Imagine Dragons, Demi Lovato, Phil Collins, SHINee, 80s music, and general music you hear on the everyday radio.

  1. Hi Jade. How do you get in touch with Japanese music like NamieAmuro. Is there a Japanese community in your neighbourhood? I am from Malaysia, also listening to Jpop, but I don’t understand the language. Do you read Japanese?

    • Hi benjamin, so nice of you to comment^^ I got in touch with Japanese music while searching for good music downloads about six years ago. It started with Ayumi Hamasaki, then I discovered artists as Koda Kumi and ofcourse Namie Amuro. There is no Japanese community here, I don’t even know a single Japanese person. So I discovered J-Pop all by myself^^
      I don’t exactly read Japanese, but I think the language is beautiful and I can understand (contexts of) certain phrases and words because I listen to J-Pop. You learn while listening =)

  2. It’s understandable how you started with Ayumi. Everyone goes thro an Ayumi-phase when listening to Jpop but eventually arrives elsewhere. Can I recommend Chihiro Onitsuka esp her ‘This Armor’ CD of 2002. It’s online somewhere. Very musical stuff.

    • I will certainly check it out, thanks!

  3. Hi there! I discovered your website a few days ago when I was searching for reviews for Kumi’s albums as she’s my new addition to my playlist. I must say that I like very much your reviews ‘cuz you’re one of the few reviewers that don’t go on a dramatic tone such as:”This song is a complete mess” or “this album is terrible”.You tend to give every song even the smallest chance.Wish you luck with your posts!
    P.s. – by the way, I’m also 18.

    • Hi! Thanks for commenting, I never thought people would actually notice the fact that I try to hear the best in every song haha. But it’s true just like you said ^^
      I see you made Kumi a new addition to your playlist, I hope you love her music like I do! If you ever request an album or single review that isn’t on the blog yet, I’d be happy to write it 🙂

  4. Hi again! I was just thinking to ask u if you could review Kuu’s Kingdom (as it’s the only album that you didn’t review) and Ayu’s Rainbow & NEXT LEVEL (these two are priority)? I’ve already listened to them, especially Ayu’s for a long time now but I always like to hear other opinions about music that I like.
    Changing subject, I’m really glad that u love so much LOVE again from Ayu because it’s such a solid album from her ‘cuz I’ve noticed that a lot of people dislike it because it’s too “safe”. Just like a lot of people disliked Party Queen because it’s too experimental.My opinion is that both albums are very good: Party Queen for its versatility and the latter for its huge emotions and epicness.

    • Ofcourse I can review those albums, I love them so I’ll hop to it asap ~ :3
      And it’s great to hear your opinion about said Ayu albums, indeed I love LOVE again (I even think it’s one of the strongest albums of 2013), and although I didn’t really adore Party Queen I must say it has grown on me 🙂
