December 2009


And hasn’t it been a looooooong time since my last blog? Yes, it has. Of course it has. And I must say I’m not surprised or disappointed in myself, because I’ve known for well, my whole life, that I’m a very very veeeery lazy person ;). But let’s not talk about the stuff I didn’t do these past few months, but about the things I did do!

It all started this thursday. When the Netherlands suddenly became victim of a heavy snowfall. Or well, victim…, not everyone sees it that way, but I do! Because of the snow I can’t go anywhere on the bike or I’ll have to take the bus, but I’ll bet there’s a lot of traffic >.<. Anyways, the snow. I decided that if I had to stay at home because of the snow, I’d better do something with it too! Which is why I made a Snowman! ๐Ÿ˜€ And in a closet somewhere in the attic I also found: ‘Snowman in a box’. Which contains everything I needed to dress my snowman with; A black high hat, red scarf, black buttons, a wooden pipe and of course a carrot! And here you can see the result! It’s not very big, but that’s because it was already very late and cold :P.

And now on to the next goal! This saturday I had a Christmasparty with my friends. (And we had so much fun!) We had decided that everyone had to buy a gift for everyone and because we were with six people, it meant you had to search gifts for five people. We had also decided that you had to make a poem or a story for everyone. And then I had the idea to fold those up as ORIGAMI! I actually wanted to make a different origami figure for everyone. But in the end I just made for everyone the most popular origamifigur: the crane. I had already made this crane 10 years ago (when I was still in primaryschool! Wasn’t I a little genius? xD), so I knew I could do it, but I just didn’t remember hรณw to do it. But luckily internet exist! I really have to thank Google and Youtube for helping me out with this.
So, if you want to learn how to fold the origamicrane, just take a look at this little movie. ^.^

Well that’s that, for now then. I’ll really try to work more on my goals from now on and to be less lazy. And I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Edit: But the Crane isn’t the only origamifigure I made! I also made the swan and the penguin, but those weren’t for the party ;).

This goal isn’t only about the buying part, but also about making the decision which cd’s I want to buy. I’ve always listened to the radio and I didn’t really have my favourite genre or artist. So this goal is about me finding my style when it comes to music.

I’ve bought two cd’s:

As you can see, these are The Same Old Blood Rush With A New Touch of Cute Is What We Aim For (who broke up! Why?!) and The Summer EP of Never Shout Never. The last one has only six songs on it, but okay, it’s a cd. The whole packaging of The Summer EP is made out of recycled paper, how nice? ๐Ÿ™‚ And about the other one: I listen to it all the time, it’s amazing! I want their other cd, that’s Rotation, too. โค
