My Take on Murphy's Law
By: Alexia Radu
If you thought this would one of those overly cheerful travelling pieces (which to be honest would be in line with the Christmas spirit), sorry to disappoint but I’m staying true to the title. From time to time I might indulge some positivity but generally, it’s mostly me giving a truthful account of ‘whatever could have gone wrong, did’. It’s really a matter of perspective here and the truth can never be solely positive or negative, but still, let me complain...

STUDY SESSION #2
Coming up: On Screen
By: Sophie Dijkman & Noa Jansen
In this monthly section I will keep you up to date with new or yet to come Netflix and cinema releases. A selection will be made of movies and series that are, in my opinion, new, different, popular, not so popular and surprising to watch. Do you need a good movie tip or a new Netflix series to binge? You will find them here!
This month will be all about what movies to binge with Christmas… Sophie collaborated with Noa to give you all the must watch new, and classic, Christmas movies. Sit back, grab your blanket, sip on your hot chocolate, and enjoy!

Noa’s confessional: a place where you can spill the tea and tell all your sins.
In this sacrament, Noa can forgive sins in Off-Screen’s name. With all the crazy stuff happening within Off-Screen’s walls, it was about time for us to have a safe place to tell your most embarrassing, weird, unusual and striking stories for them to be heard by all of us. So from now on, when something special happens to you, you have something on your mind or there’s something else that you really want to share with the rest of Off-Screen, send an email to email@example.com, tell me in person or reveal it to me in a dream.
I decided that, just like in a real confessional, everything should be and stay anonymous. And remember, this is a safe place where everyone can come to terms with his/her sins, where judgement is a word that doesn’t belong in our vocabulary, and where we can all enjoy your embarrassing stories.
Check out the first confessions here!
