And seeing as I have to take the train to both my workplaces (yes, I actually now have two jobs besides school), my public trainsport annoiances has grown significantly.
My first hate has to be eating / drinking in the train. Yeah, I do it as well. But does it ALWAYS have to be smelly fast food? And omfg. Please eat with you mouth closed. That also means with chewing gum, you are not a freakin' cow. If you just have to have that immensely big milkshake, I am telling you this: when nothing comes through the straw it's empty. STOP SUCKING IT. Oh, and no, drinking a beer is not okay when it's 8.30 in the morning.
Secondly, music. I listen to music in the train, simply because I need something to drown out all the annoying chattering on phones or eatingsounds of my fellowpassengers, but when your music actually manages to pentrates through my headphones in to my ears then I must say you are either deaf or have a wish to be. Or perhaps you think to be kind by letting the rest of the train enjoy the bass of your music, that, my friend, is very unneccesary.
The most annoying this is offcourse when someone doesn't even have the decensy to use headphones, oh no..! If you have a cellphone which can play music, why even bother with those pesky things..? Everyone loves "gangsta rap", don't they?
Thirdly, when it is rushhour, I would greatly appreciate it if you would take your big ass bag from the couch, pull in your legs and make some room. That way we don't have to get all akward when I ask if I could please sit next to you, nor will you make kick you in the shins or throw my bag into your face as I stumble over your feet.
And, I'm almost done, then runny noses. Yes, it's winter, we all get a cold. But could you be so kind as not try and snort as though want get the snot as far up as to your brains? Oh same goes for the flimsy snorting, every three seconds. Just use a handkercief, it's okay to use one.
A minor annoiance: do not think I am actually so kind as to look after your bag while you go to the toilet. One: you did not ask me to. Two: I do not know you, so if it get's stolen then it just sucks to be you, it doesn't affect me at all.
The are just a few thing to keep in mind when you travel by public transport. It is fairly simple: just sit down, read your free newspaper and be quiet. That's all I'm asking for.

My favorite were the pink elephants (but the orange horses and yellow bears were cool as well).

Plus some quotes:
Blair: I've been thinking about changing my signature scent. I've been trying out a new one, I can't decide if I like it. Would you mind? Chuck: [sniffs Blair] Smells a little like desperation.
Chuck: Did you have a reason for coming to see me? Because if it was to insult me, there's a website you can go to.

Ah yes. Christmas is going to be too awsome, as I will be spending it in Paris with my beloved family..!
That also means I'll have to save up to be able to do a little shopping there.. But seeing as I don't have regular work I'm on a serious budget till the end of December. But the issue is, that it's Paris! I dont want to look a twat in my shabby (highly comfortable, but not very elegant) clothing in the one of the most stylin' cities I know.. So I've been desperately going through my regular blogs to get some inspiration, seeing as my shabby gear will just have to do (but perhaps there might be some cool new combinations possible..).
An update with my latest inspiration will follow!

A bit of a shame was the lack of showers.. Seeing as I shower at least once a day, not being able to shower for three days (especially after working at smoky fires). But plenty of deodorant and rose scented make up remover did the trick. We slept on the floor of a classroom with 20 others, quite cozy and close together (very interesting with people you don’t even know) sometimes getting an elbow or knee in my back but that didn’t really bother me. The ridiculously loud snoring kind of did.. > <
Oh and the highlight was that we did a workshop in forging! Three proper blacksmiths (was secretly hoping for an Orlando Bloom a la Pirates of the Caribbean or Kingdom of Heaven, but ah well) taught a group of us to work the fire, heat up iron and working with the iron. The hammers were crazy heavy and the fire was bit scary in the beginning, as well as the iron itself as it got really hot (even when it wasn’t glowing anymore it was hot, so many times I had to remind myself not to touch it) but as time passed the heat didn’t bother me one bit. It was great fun, even though my hands were really sore by the end of the day. I made a nail and two free forms (better described as “curly shaped things”). Pictures will follow! ^^
Oh and I forgot that playing musical chairs with a large group was such great fun!
Katrien, thanks for the invite! LOVED IT!

Besides that I kind of think I would rock at being unemployed, having loads of casual sex, getting stoned and protesting against war. Plus not having to worry about shaving the armpits. So anyone know a good time machine (or some sort of time and space bender such as Hiro Nakamura will do as well) so I can go and leave this boring ass life behind?

I can't focus. On nothing. I actually managed to take the wrong bus TWICE this week, that meant I went completely the wrong way and it took me over half an hour longer to get home. I mean, can someone please wake me the f*ck up? So I can finally finish my report for school which I should have finished today, but isn't even close to it. Every time I try to work on it my brainactivity turns down to zero. I haven't got a clue where my mind is at lately, but has got shitty timing. I have things to do. So if you happen to find my brain, please return it, there will be a fitting reward.

My hair is actually going straight.. I mean come on! I finally started to appreciate my curls and now they are vanishing.. I’m going back to the hair I had when I was like 8 years old, not really straight, nor curly. Oh and best of all; frizzy. How annoying. Apparently it’s not even that strange, it has something to do with hormones. Perfect! Like having hormones constantly affecting my mood isn’t enough, now they have go and to spoil my hair!
I’ve decided to now finally take the plunge and cut my hair short. Really, properly short. Oh and bangs. Yes. Bangs. Those sideways asymmetrical bangs. But I first have to wait until my usual hairdresser get’s back from her 3 week holiday. I need her to give me the green light, I think she may better know if it actually suits me.. Until then, I’ll just have to suffer stupid hair.
Look at these girls, isn’t short hair just really cute?
And I adore her color.

My girlies from my former work and I skedaddled off to the Efteling last Tuesday. For those who don’t know the Efteling, it’s an amusement park with sort of a fairytale theme. Check it here. I have plenty of childhood memories of going to this park and still gets me all excited and giggly when I get to go there. Especially the Droomvlucht (freely translated: Dreamflight), it’s a ride in which you go into this cart which swings you around this fairy world, trolls and glittering castles included. I desperately tried to take pictures of it, but unfortunately the cart when too fast so I only got odd photo’s of limbs of the fairies.. > < Pardoes, that made me go a little mad. But what place can you better scream on the top of your longs, break out in random dancing and pretend to lick the bum of a statue than an amusement park. I mean, don’t they kind of expect you to go nuts?
Well one thing is for shure! I enjoyed it fully!
The Goose Herder
Frogs with the golden ball
The Dancing Shoes
Distracted by the pretty flowers..
The Troll King, when he woke up this plate thing in front of his throne started vibrating, standing on it gave reason for plenty of giggles.

Little Red Riding HoodOn thursday I went to Utrecht with my mum and sister for some retail therapy. I wanted a new wintercoat and some proper flats, but off course I could not find them. Well I found plenty, but none that either looked good on me or fell within my tiny budget. Adding a little p.m.s. to the frustration of not finding what I wanted made me go all irritated. (And I do apologize for my erratic behavior mummy!) But still went home with a rather lovely deep v-neck cable-knit sweater and a pair of new pajamas. So it wasn’t a huge waste.. ^^
I also visited my great aunt with my grandmother yesterday, which was fun even though the cabdriver was quite the idiot when his navigator did not understand the road was blocked due to maintenance and he got all confused..
The rest of my time I wasted with watching Firefly, refolding the contents of my closet (which took me all day, how sad is that?) and trying to work on some reports for my internship. Ah yes, just one more day of my fall break and then I have to get back to real life. *Sigh*.
