Yesterday I grabbed a banana from dining hall and ran through my unit pretending it was a gun.
Although I can be pretty headstrong I would of course, get to the hospital as soon as possible and apologize for whatever argument lead to the fight!
Positive, all people who love each other should be able to marry. I think it is really good that it is allowed now the state of New York
First Tumblr post in a while but I refuse because then I would have to either describe more than one person or make a choice.
Someone is after my horcruxes
Speaking strictly in monetary value that would be my Macbook Pro, the smartest thing I bought in 2010! Perhaps also my moped a Honda Dax replica which I love, but I think it is worth a little less.
I have about 6 friends who I am really really close with and consider my best friends, but I know I will have to describe them in a later post so I won’t do that right here. I really thought this one through and, although I tell all of them a lot of personal things, there is only one person I can tell everything to. I know you read this and want an whole epic story but I will just post that we can really be ourselves around each other.
Ha I looked forward to this one.
In one of my first Tumblr posts I wrote that I wanted to visit Svalbard and I still want however it is more the arctic areas in general that greatly appeal to me ever since I heard my aunt’s stories about Svalbard and Edmund Ofner’s stories about the North Pole.
I also really want to visit the United States since every since I was a child I felt like being drawn to that country. I would love to do a road trip there, of course in an old convertible and from photos, movies, books, stories etc, I can almost already decide I want to be living there some time in my life. Preferably a townhouse in New York City and/or a beach house in California.
I also really want to travel through Africa and volunteer for an NGO there, simply for the life changing experiencing and feeling good about doing well. Perhaps a little selfish but still, I think everybody gets the point deep down.
I think happiness is achieved when you are perfectly satisfied with the moment and state you are currently in.
Ill answer this in general, from what I heard they remember me for being very difficult to handle but always being honest and cheerful.
Hell is other people.
Really? The English title is ‘No Exit’? Pretty much summarizes it though!
I can’t really come up with a passage right now, I now that ‘How I Live Now’ by Meg Rosoff really touched me as a whole. This is really strange normally I can come up with something like this easily. I may get back to this.
I think love is the time when you care more for someone else than you care for yourself even when that means putting someone else their happiness above your own. I think this is what the band Yellowcard means in their song ‘City of Devils’ when they sing “Boy, you gotta love someone more than yourself”
Ps. Although this may sound like I am very experienced in what I am talking about, I only had this feeling twice and I often find it very hard to even just ‘like’ someone.

It is really funny that I get this one today because my day pretty much only consisted of running errands. Still I’ll tell the story in great detail. Here it goes.
My day started with not being able to sleep, for more information why you can read my last written post. Despite the lack of sleep I woke up at half past seven in the morning, grabbed my Macbook and started reading Google Reader, NRC, Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. A little morning ritual of mine.
At 8:30 am I found it time to get out of bed, I did not really feel like showering so I just put on my favourite pair of old Nudie jeans and a grey hooded sweater and my glasses to go grocery shopping. I uploaded some new music to my ipod, brushed my teeth and cycled to the Albert Heijn in the city centre with Martin Solveig’s Ready to Go on repeat, great song to start your day. Pretty much listened to it all day actually.
When I walked into the Albert Heijn, bought some nectarines, minneolas, an olive bread, a honey nut bread, three cups of light quark, pesto, mandarin juice and cherry tomatoes. I went back home and made some breakfast and watched an episode of the OC, something in season 2.
When I finished my breakfast and the episode I went to the police station to report my wallet as stolen so I could get a new driver’s license (AM) at city hall. The woman who helped me was very kind and everything was settled pretty quick, only had to sign some forms. After that I went to city hall, when standing at the counter however, I found out that I needed new photos for my new driver’s license so I went back home to look for them between all the pieces of furniture and packed boxes. Lucky me, I have the strangest place for keys and photos so I never lose them, they are always in a cup which is filled with condoms.
Back at city hall I waited about 15 minutes before my request was dealt with, I read an article in the free Dutch newspaper ‘de Pers’ about building a mountain in the polder, still don’t know whether it was complete humbug or just a mad men’s fantasy. When my number appeared on the screen, a lady who was not really able to speak proper Dutch or smile ‘helped’ me. She kind off annoyed me, was not able to answer half of my questions or get my sarcastic remarks which I used as a, in my opinion, proper response for her lacking expertise.
The whole thing costed me 48 euros and I have to wait five days for a new license, any commercial undertaking that would sell a little plastic plate for 48 euros and keep a customer waiting in line 15 minutes just to wait 5 days would probably go bankrupt and would not receive any subsidy, however we accept this failing from our municipalities, weird, I do not get it. Just have everything that is possible centralized, provide these services online, fire those incapable people and give the money you save as subsidies for R&D, culture and higher education.
When I left city hall it was 11:15 am and it started rainy, I cycled to America Today as fast as I could because they still had to give me money for a sweater I returned because of a production error, the boy and girl behind the counter where very friendly and helped me really well, actually talked to the girl about five times this week so she already knew why I was there when I walked in. With the money from the sweater I bought two new boxershorts and a white v-neck t-shirt, simply because my old white v-neck t-shirt was to rugged and dirty to wear and one can never have enough comfortable boxershorts.
Since it stopped raining I walked through the city, just browsing in shops looking for a new wallet, still not found anything I really liked. I went home, made lunch, the olivebread with olive oil, cheese, pesto and cherry tomatoes under the grill, really nice, I ate a lot, watched another episode of the OC and started packing more stuff. Around 2:00 pm I called my tailor to find out whether my chinos were already done since I would be working tomorrow and therefore have no time to pick them up, this was not a problem so I went by.
After changing my ripped jeans for freshly tailored go-to-hell green chinos I went to an appointment with my psychologist whom I had not seen in more then a year. We talked about how everything went and had coffee, the only reason I was there was that I needed him as a mediator in a family problem, which pretty much worked out in my advantage, not that I had expected anything else but still it was good. Sometimes the opinions and advice of a third person who knows what he is talking about can bring great new insights in old situations.
At 4:00 pm I went home, packed some furniture in bubble plastic, you know the plastic with the little bubbles on it, always fun to play with. At 5:30 pm I gave a good friend a call to check if he was up for a quick run in the evening, he did not know yet and would call me after dinner. I went by the store where I bought by old wallet to see whether they still had it, they did not so they would order one for be if available.
At 6:00 pm I had dinner with my mom and watched the series ‘My Wife and Kids’ at the same time. My mom made a great salad with lychees and shrimps and oyster sauce which was really nice, the episode of the series was unfortunately not that funny. The friend called me back and explained that he was to tired to we scheduled a morning run for tomorrow and talked a bit about having new experiences ahead of you and the feelings those bring since he is going away for his studies as well, only physically a lot further, in Istanbul, hope to visit him over Christmas break. I went to Albert Heijn again to get American Pancakes for my breakfast tomorrow and jam and soy milk and chocolate chip cookies, because I wanted those.
Back in my room, deconstructed my bed so now I only have to deconstruct my closet and then I am good to go. I called my dad to talk about my appointment in the afternoon and to schedule a date to go to a little village by the beach we try to go to every year at least once. Miraculously we both have time next thursday so that is going to be fun. I hope the weather is nice or at least nicer than today. I connected my laptop near my bed, made some oatmeal and watched the movie 127 hours which is really awesome. In the beginning I did not quite know what to think, except that I already thought the camerawork in the movie is extraordinary, the plot can be summarized in three lines however, the way it was worked out in the movie was truly awesome.
and then I went to Tumblr to post something about my day in great detail.. Well you all know this part now so I am going to bed because as you know I am going out running in the woods in the morning, eating American Pancaked and will spend the rest of the day selling newspaper subscriptions.
