Summer holidays

First, sorry for not updating for so long!
The people with which we used to surf on with the internet probably have left so I don't have internet anymore back home.
But now I am at my in-laws residence and luckily they do have internet! So I'll give you a little update :)

Last week I've had an test week. I was really nervous about it but it went pretty good though :)
I scored a lot of 8's and 9's out of 10 so that's pretty nice :)

But the most important thing...
Two days ago my summer holidays started!
I'll be having an eight week (!) holiday this year, and we are planning to be leaving on 19 July to Spain for two weeks. I can't wait!

And as since I passed on to the next grade at school with really high marks I have bought myself an Ipod classic to celebrate :)
I also have new phone now, the Samsung Pixon because my supscription to my old phone ended.
It has an 8 megapixel camera on it and I love it! (L) :)

So now I'm entering my holidays real happy with a new phone, a new ipod and some sunny weather! :D

Old photo's Part I: Ticous

After spending some time on my fathers computer, I found some old photo's I've been missing out lately. So I thought I'd add them to my blog, before they'll get lost again.

This time, I'll be uploading the cutest photo's of Ticous :)
Ticous normally is a real timid cat, really scared of people. But when you're alone with her and she starts to trust you a little, she is a real sweet and playful cat :)

The Hague

Yesterday me and my boyfriend Marc went to Den Haag (The Hague) because I had to make photo's of the Peace Palace for a school project I have.

About the Peace Palace: This palace, a gift from the American, Andrew Carnegie. In this palace houses the International Court of Justice, the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the International Court of Justice and a splendid library. It is decorated with gifts donated by countries all over the world.

And there were a lot of Japanese people there!

After that, we wanted to go back home (or at least get back to Utrecht) but an accident had happened and the train had to go back to The Hague and stay there for a few more hours.

So we decided to get some food.

After a short walk we saw a group of people all standing there and taking pictures.
And as curious as we are, took a look too.
Guess who was visiting The Hague at the same moment we were...?

The Dalai Lama! He looked so old and wrinkled, but he waved us goodbye :)

After that, we decided to get some food at the Burger King and then move on to the train station checking if our train would be leaving again. It finally worked again, at least we thought.
The people couldn't attach the two trains together, so we had a delay of another 30 minutes.

But we did come home safe after all :)

The Peace Palace.
The sign in front says: "May Peace Prevail On Earth".

Steal this.. Project

In art history class we had to make groups and think of our own streetart project.
We could make graffity, print stickers or t-shirts and all that stuff.
So I formed a group with Stefan and Mark and we were thinking of all the thefts in big cities and so we came up with this idea:
We are going to print stickers and attach them on, for example, a brick wall. The sticker will say then "Steal this wall".
But we also want to make t-shirts which will say "Steal this shirt" and hand them out to people.

We came up with this idea beacause there are a lot of thefts and we want to make clear that stealing is useless by telling people to steal things you can't steal (like a brick wall, a building or a shirt someone's wearing).

Photo's of the designs will be uploaded soon :) is our website, it is in Dutch though :)
