"Wallen van hier tot Tokyo", literally translated as "bags under my eyes from here to Tokyo" in other words: I'm flippin' tired! Correction, I was very tired until last week; I had the chance to escape the uni life and head to Austria. You can expect some footage from that week soon!
The first two months of this year have flown by, literally. Deadlines are piling up and I'm still my lazy little self, which implies that I don't give a shit and don't do a thing either. Okay, it's not hundred percent true. I'm studying quite hard, spend little time home, but I try to plan some free time as well. Due of lacking time and also some creativity, I decided to pause this blog, taking a break. So, I'm now starting fresh with some pictures I took mid-february. So much footage is waiting for me to edit and post online! I will be posting more personal posts like these, because these are my favorite indeed. I hope you like it!
@ Markthal Rotterdam: Visiting this lovely market building made me wish I had a little restaurant/bar/shop myself. It was buzzing with people, because it was the carnaval weekend. My sister was not really pleased with the people next to us. That guy was way too touchy touchy; PDA has it's limits youngish gentleman!
This view of Rotterdam is one of my favorite ones of the city. Arriving by car you will probably pass this part of the city, the beautiful scenery with the water, the old warehouses, the skyscrapers: where new meets old.
@ de Lange Muur, Rotterdam: If you ever can get your hands on these munchies – mini bapao wrapped deep-fried oysters with a honey glaze - I would definitely give it a try! It is one of my favorite dishes. The stickiness, sweetness of the honey with a bitter undertone because of it's caramelization, the crunchiness of that glaze, the softness of the bapao wrapper, the freshness that the parsley gives the dish breaks through that heaviness, one word: yummy!
@ Het Arsenaal, Leiden: the uni building of the South-East Asian Studies, my hangout 9/10 of the time I spent at the uni. You may have seen these two pictures on my Instagram feed, but I wanted to share it otherwise. The last one is my favorite. It has a bit of a depressive vibe, don't know why, maybe because of the people you can vaguely see, maybe it's because it's in black and white. Anyway, I could not not take a picture of this, the inner Asian really screamed to take this picture :p
I present the goofy, after having the most boring classes-me. I make weird faces when I eat, I know.
So far, so good, I guess! I'm still loving what I do plus I have found some balance between studying and my free time.
"Just keep on stimulating yourself to do better, greater, more awesome things", I say to myself everyday. It really works for me, it may as well work for you!
Dream big guys and enjoy every single moment of life as long as it's going to last!
So emo/weheartit, lol. Take care guys! Aufwiederschnitzels - I'm hungry.
