Day 31

Today I smiled because:

  • I got things done today. It’s nice getting things done.
  • I watched ‘Volver’. It left me wanting more. I adore movies that leave me wanting more.
  • I helped a friend with a math problem. I miss the playing with¬†trigonometry.
  • My cat laying on the carpet, with her paws underneath her. She’s so cute when she does that.

Day 30

Today I smiled because:

  • A part of my plan arrived! I love opening packages…
  • Awesome conversations are awesome. Especially if they’re with awesome people like B, A, K and C!
  • I got a free tie-keychain. I’ve been playing with it all day.
  • I discovered some great music, yesterday. You can find it here and here.

Day 29

Today I smiled because:

  • It must have been noon when I got out of bed. I love sleeping this long.
  • I had a great time yesterday at the Light Festival. Too bad I had to leave early because of the train schedule.
  • My lamp shade is finished! I’m looking at the colors all the time. They’re soooo briiiiiight!
  • Boredom unexpectedly leaded to some interesting conversations. Hurray for Twitter.

Day 28

Today I smiled because:

  • I had a long bath.
  • After my bath, my hair looked a bit like ¬†Mystique‘s hair. Only not red, and maybe a little shorter.
  • I removed the lampshade from the light in my room. To do that, I had to remove the lightbulb first. So now I have to paint my lampshade. Or I have to develop night vision.
  • I got some support from an unexpected corner. Thank you, F.

Day 27

Today I smiled a hell of a lot. Mostly because:

  • I fell in love with a dress. And it’s mine now. Ooooooh how I love that dress!
  • Along with that dress, I bought more presents for me. I’m pampering myself, and I’m lovin’ it!
  • I ate chocolate mousse at the station, sitting outside in the sun.
  • You would be smiling too if you were listening to The Beatles. Don’t you deny it!

Day 26

Today I smiled because:

  • I had a great afternoon at De Dikke Kat. Really great.
  • Sandwiches with Nutella. Nutella and Kwatta Puur are the only types of chocolate spread. Everything else is rubbish. Also: if you can still see the structure of the bread, you need to add more chocolate spread.
  • I helped Ca with her photo album, by putting little sticky things on the corners of each photo. I actually enjoyed the mind-numbing part of it. And I like that I helped Ca.
  • A part of my plan will be delivered tomorrow or monday, according to my mailbox. I’m VERY excited about that. Really. It’s like I’m bouncing up and down all the time. But only in my mind, of course.

Day 25

Today I smiled because:

  • I unexpectedly met my boyfriend from kindergarten at the station. Apart from my being a socially awkward penguin, it was nice to see him.
  • I picked up my developed film from the store. It’s awesome to see that, even though the film was expired, most shots seem to be quite good. Now I need to find some one to print them.
  • I’m freeeeeeeee! No more exams! (at least for now)
  • Vacatiooooooon! Now, what shall I do next?

Day 24

Today I smiled because:

  • A new plan is forming in my head, thanks to A. Thank you A, you are supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.
  • I have a new accomplice to help me with my new plan. Thank you very much, C!
  • Did I mention tomorrow’s the last day of the exam period for me? I guess I did… Did I?
  • I love it when things are going according to plan. Even more when everything goes according to plan and all of a sudden this song is on. I also like the cover KT Tunstall made.

Day 23

Today I smiled because:

  • Two more days and I’m freeeeeeeeee! Well, at least for a week and a half. But: freeeeeeeeeee!
  • I found a Scrobbler-extension for Chrome. Finally something that will scrobble from YouTube to
  • Making new friends. Awesome.
  • I went to the store to have my film developed. I’m very curious to see how it turns out, even more because the film expired in 2010.

Day 22

Today I smiled because:

  • Things are starting to get calm here. I sure hope it’ll last.
  • I cleaned out my wallet. I always leave old movie tickets and train tickets in it, so every time I clean it out, I think of the memories. There were a lot of beautiful memories in it this time.
  • I feel like I’m finally getting things done. Some things that I maybe should have done a while ago.
  • This still makes me smile and cry at the same time. Whom the cap fits, let him wear it. In Dutch: Wie het schoentje past, trekke het aan.
