This week I finally met up with Annemerel (after not seeing her for a year!) and she told me that she thought my blog was more like a scrapbook. She’s right of course, because when you look up the definition of “blog” in the dictionary, I bet it doesn’t say “a website that gets updated three or maybe four times a month”. Whoops. SO YES, welcome to my scrapbook then. And scrapbooks tend to get a little crazy, with glue stuck everywhere between the pages, little stickers, lots of pictures and impromptu captions, so you better get used to the weird long posts about nothing ;-) This one is about my month of september (because let’s face it, the next one will probably be posted in october anyway).
Annemerel took good care of me when I visited her! Delicious food and a spontaneous hair makeover; fun! Before that I visited the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for a class I’m taking and it was AWESOME. We listened to a reading from the head of the Asia department who just got back from N-Korea (Mind. Blowing.) and got a little tour. I could probably bore you with it for hours.
A pretty view at the beach ♥ I’ve been eyeing these shoes ever since Kim
bought them a few years ago and I wanted them sooooo bad. Long story short: I finally got them! Yay! ♥ Listening to Keane (and Coldplay!) is autumn to me. ♥ Ever wonder what the hell is keeping me so busy these days? This is the answer! Studying studying studying. It doesn’t end!
This saturday we went for a hike along Wieringen and we took a lot of pictures. Unfortunately I don’t own photoshop at the moment (a friend of mine installed a new hard drive in my macbook last week -YAY- and I still need to re-install all of my software) which sucks and forces me to use a shitty online editor, but is also the perfect excuse for giving myself pink hair.
BECAUSE, WHY NOT?! It’s still blonde in real life though, I’m too big of a wuss to take that plunge.
WINTERRR IS COMINGGG! This week I spent my first day in bed due to the flu (blegh) and also took my winter wardrobe out of storage. I missed my booties! ♥ The black binders you see are from my job. The “office administrator” bought them after I requested them and I took a whole sunday morning to arrange them. LOVED IT. On instagram I asked if I was the only old fart who enjoyed this kind of stuff. Turns out there are a lot of other organising freaks out there! ;)
Hmmm, what else?
I’m working on a give away! I just can’t keep it a secret any longer, because I’m so excited. I love giving away presents! It won’t be BIG (I’m buying everything myself and am therefore limited by a budget, boooo), but I think it will be fun anyway. I’ll keep you posted ;) 2.
Everytime I go to the dentist he tells me how awesome my teeth are (although it sounds like I am, I’m really not kidding). So, smug little me took a seat and waited for the lovely rain of compliments to befall upon me. Instead I got a new appointment for fixing a cavity and a letter to give to the surgeon who is going to take out all 4 (!!) of my wisdom teeth. I’ve got a feeling there’s a moral to this story… 3.
I FINALLY saw The Bling Ring. Sofia, you slayed again gurl! And one of the most interesting parts about it: one of the main characters (Alexis Neiers, played by Emma Watson) is apparently just as crazy in real life as she is being depicted and the evidence is all over youtube. My favorite craziness? “There’s many things that I read in here that were false, like you saying I wore six-inch Louboutin heels to court with my tweed skirt, when I wore four-inch little brown Bebe shoes!!!!”Here is an article
about it. Watching this film won’t make you very optimistic about the future of (american) youth… let’s just put it that way. 4.
ONLY 3,5 weeks till I get to see Fleetwood Mac! Can’t wait! 5.
No book recommendations this time, sorry! I have to read a lot of study materials every week and it is kind of taking up all of my reading time.
(Confession: I’ve also sang along to Wrecking Ball more times than I’d like to admit…)
This post has been lingering in the draft section for over 1,5 weeks and has taken me 3 hours today to finish up and post (my wifi connection rocksssss).
Have a nice week everybody! xoxo
