I'm a little bit bored

So.

My intership is starting tomorrow. I don't know what I've shared about that this far, but I'll give you a little summary.

I'll do an intership in Hoofddorp. That is pretty near Schiphol, our biggest airport, and not far from Amsterdam too. From where I live in Utrecht, it will probably be an hour travelling each morning and each evening.

Older cover of Viva

I will be in a huge office building. I guess so you could compare it to the Conde Nast building. Here it's the Sanoma building. It contains probably about 20 or 30 magazine titles, so it is HEAVEN for me.

I will work for Viva, from september 1st to december 1st. I am so nervous but I'm actually even more excited. I really want to do very well, but I know I'm there to learn. So that will work out I guess. I can't wait to write fun articles, to come up with the ideas and actually be able to work them out.

More recent cover

Viva is a weekly magazine for women aged 20 to 35. They are fun, independent and intelligent ladies. A lot of the articles are about relationships, sex, and news. But it's always very fun, and not tacky at all. It's a hugely creative title, and I can't WAIT to learn all about it.

Always bright colours

So, well, that's my planning for tomorrow and afterwards. As of today, I'm missing my boyfriend and staring at my laptop untill something happens.

XOXO

You HAVE to see this video

No, it's not Lady Gaga's new video. Even though that one is worthy of a monument.

This is Mika's new video. And somehow it speaks to my soul. I'm not sure what it is. I guess it's the different little stories that the caracters represent. Or maybe that's just my interpretation. I'm a sucker for normal caracters with their own little crazy habbits.

Besides, the song is just TOO happy and summery to be true. Since French is one of my favorite languages (oui, je parle un peu aussi) this song HAS to be my summer anthem. Check it out!


Mika- Elle me dit

Ps. The part where they all dance makes me want to jump around my room in my pyjama's.

I moved out!

Yes, the time was there. Yesterday evening my dad drove me and my bike to Utrecht (one of the biggest citys in Holland), to my new room. I rent a room in an appartment which is owned by a 26 year old girl, which is cosy. We get along good so far! I also live 5min from Ikea, which is ideal for a decoration nerd like me (I was there today, alone - so proud- and nearly had a heart attack from not being able to decide what to take home).


I also cooked my own dinner for the first time (so proud, times 2). Wasn't the first time I cooked dinner, but it was the first time I cooked just for ME. With MY OWN GROCERIES. Which I BOUGHT. With MY MONEY. That I WORKED FOR.

You see, I need capitals to express myself, so I am proud.


I made Babi Ketjap btw. And I learned to never trust pictures of meals that you will make, when you buy the box with herbs and stuff. Its another level of photoshop I promise you. Ofcourse I made way to much food (did you really think I could finish that plate?), so the freezer is stuffed with enough Babi Ketjap to feed an entire country.

As you see my room is mostly white, which I like a LOT. But I do wish I could put some pictures up, which I think I cant. I'm totally eyeing some on Etsy. (If you don't know Etsy you don't know what happiness is)

XOXO

You see that picture under this post?

Yeah, that's Pont d'Arc, a natural formed way for the river called Ardeche. I kayak'd (how do you spell THAT?) under there.

Holiday was lovely, my boyfriend has not sent me the pictures yet but we had a lovely time. Aside from getting stung by a wasp (they are demons I tell you) and getting into a car crash (nobody got hurt, just very shaken). And I'm so proud of my strong survival guy, me and my family kayak'd (?!) 8km under Pont d'Arc, and a few days after that my boyfriend went back and did 24km!

Will update with photo's when I get them.

XOXO
