Time travel 101

By Maarten van Sluijs - Theme - 4 October 2023

As much as we try to do things right, making mistakes is inevitable in life, and while we try not to, it is hard to live without regrets. So, what if you could go back in time and stop yourself from doing that one stupid thing, or maybe more interestingly, do things you otherwise wouldn’t have. Time travel is a concept that while probably impossible, has enamored mankind for millennia. In our modern-day culture, it is quite a common appearance in the media. Of course, movies like “Back to the Future” spring to mind, but also in music like “Tijdmachine” by Dio, and books like the “Harry Potter” series. To help my fellow Intermaatjes I’ve decided to take a deep dive into the concept of time travel and share with you some of my results, so that hopefully in the future you might come back and live regret free. So welcome all, class of 2023, to Time Travel 101.

Sander Schepers' Spectacular Social-media Support

By Sander Schepers - Committees - 3 May 2023

We all love to travel right? Because you can learn and see new things, enjoy the weather, try amazing food, or because “you want to find yourself”. Well, in reality, this is not true. The only reason to go traveling is to make the perfect Instagram picture. People can like those pictures and that is very cool. If you are a Gen Z you can also make a BeReal which is even cooler. The problem with those pictures is that you might have to travel far to make them. This can take a lot of time and it can also be costly. Although it is absolutely worth it to go to the other side of the world for some likes on social media, you can also stay closer to home! Therefore, in this article, the KiekCie presents the top 3 best places relatively nearby to make a picture that will definitely impress your friends and followers.
