You won’t see me around for a week, because I’ll be in Rome . We’re going with school, and I’m all set and ready to go:
- Aisling is safely tucked away in my suitcase to be left somewhere in Rome.
- My suitcase is all packed, and weighs less than the 20 kilos we were allowed to take (only 10 actually).
- My hand luggage is packed, and weighs only slightly more than it was supposed to (6.1 kilos), but all my food’s in there, so I suspect it’ll weigh less by the time we get to the airport
- my phone is charged, I have enough credit (prepaid).
- Both my camera batteries are charged, and my card is totally empty (loads of pictures )
- My address list is complete, and I’m going to send cards to about 16 people, including Rachael en Amanda.
I’m scared shitless that I’ll lose my money, or that it’s going to be stolen, so *crosses fingers*, wish me luck!
See ya in eight days!

Tonight the first instalment of:
*ding ding ding*
How to annoy your little sister!
Though I’m sure many of you already know how to do this, I wanted to share my methods with you anyway.
One little sister (or multiple if you prefer, but I think one to start with is enough, other wise you might get overpowered!)
This is pretty much all you need .
Little sister tells all about how she has a crush on someone but he doesn’t have a crush on her. (Blablabla). Then she tells you about how this guy has a crush on her and she only likes him as a friend. There’s your cue: start singing My Boo by Usher ft. Alicia Keys. (you know, the one that goes: There will always be one person.. etc.)

As I was cycling to the store this afternoon I encountered some kids playing on the road.
(I really like the fact that I live in the kind of place where kids can actually do that without getting run over)
Anyway, they were happily playing away with some balls, some were throwing them, some were playing football (or soccer, as the Americans say), when I came towards them I thought they were being polite by going out of my way. (After all they were playing in the road, and I believe a bicycle’s still privileged over a bunch of kids)
Except they weren’t. Yes, two of them disappeared onto the parking spaces with their ball, but they emerged seconds later, right in front of my bike.
And I said: ‘Out of my way. This is a street after all!’ They just looked at me, and went: ‘Nahnahnahnah’.
Even though I was completely within my rights to make them go out of my way, I still feel I crossed a line. I’d have been so pissed had a grown up said something like that to me.
I can’t believe I’m actually that person.

If I had the time I’d:
- Introduce all of you to my cat. I took some lovely and weird pictures of her over the past few weeks, and they are burning a hole in my harddrive. They can’t wait to be shown to someone.
- Write an amazing blog post on the most idiotic thing ever produced in The Netherlands. Just so you know. I loathe Geert Wilders, and do not agree with this film, and the majority of the people in The Netherlands don’t either!
- Tell you guys all about school, disappointments, and surprises. For instance my 90% on my Economics test. Decide for yourself whether I think it’s a disappointment or a surprise .
But Alas, I have work to do… My classical studies project need finishing, and my other homework has been neglected because of that..
