June started on a high with the performance of the piece ‘Much ado ’bout nothing’ from Shakespeare by my student union. I was part of the decor-team. It was hard work, but it went soooo well and it gave a huge burst of adrenaline.
Right after that I spent the weekend with my biblestudy group from that same student union. We made a biketrip to a beautiful castle, where we had a tour and walked around a bit. The day after we had a creative afternoon: with the assistance of some nice, relaxed music we painted. It was really great and made a big mess with the paint all over my canvasses. But the result is pretty ok.
After all of this fun, there was still the thing called school. Right after the fun weekend my exam week started. 3 exams that I didn’t prepare that well. Luckily I passed all of them and the week after I also presented and finished a project very well.
And when all this learning and project stuff was done: summer vacation! Time to relax, enjoy the free time (no alarm waking me up!) and do anything I wanted. I had an indoor picnic with a friend, visited a silence festival in Breda and went geocaching with my sister. The weather wasn’t that great, but I really enjoyed almost 2 weeks of vacation at the end of June.
And now that it’s July, I started with a fulltime job during the summer at the laboratory of the hospital in Utrecht. Lovely job, but I’m curious to see how I will deal with working fulltime… More about that in the next diary. First: June and it’s delights.
Crafts: I made a knitted banner in baby pink and after that I picked up a crochet scalloped scarf I started somewhere end of 2014. It took some time to figure out the pattern again, but now I’m back on track.
Books: Still reading ‘Bagage’ by Emily Barr, haven’t made so much progress though. When you see the stuff below, you’ll understand why
Movies/series: When I finished Downton Abbey, I moved on to New girl and then The Returned, The Missing, House of Cards, 3rd season of Orange is the New Black and now I’m watching the Swedish series Arne Dahl. Now you understand why I haven’t made so much progress with reading books…
Favorite moment: passing all my exams and projects. I won’t make any more exams at my school, since after summer I’ll study in Sweden and after that I’ll do my final internship and my thesis. So with that, I’ve passed all my exams at my school in one time! Big celebration time!
Suckiest moment: I wasn’t selected for a room at one of the campusses of Stockholms Universitet. So that means I’ll have to find a room myself. Fingers crossed.
