As I spent the day moving an aquarium and barbecueing yesterday, I couldn’t find the time to write a blog post. So instead, I’m doing the blog mashup today!
It’s just 15 days to the end of the school year and I’m counting down. In these 15 days I have to give one presentation and have three esssays and one big assignment to hand in. I *cannot* wait for all this to be over!
The first day of summer break I’m jumping on a plane to Gran Canaria. My boyfriend and I are visiting my aunt and uncle and we are planning on doing some sightseeing. Also, I’m planning on reading and writing a lot. I can’t wait to sit in the sun without having to stress about school work! After we return from our two week holiday, I have until September 5 before school starts again :>. This means I am going to do a NaNoWriMo with my writing group during that time (November is exam-time for us students so I’ve never been able to participate in it).
Also, during summer break, there is “De Parade”, a Dutch traveling theater festival. It’s absolutely awesome and I can’t wait to go again. Last year I only went once and this year I’m planning on going at least twice.
Summer’s going to be great!
Then, September 5 Uni starts again and I get to start my bachelor thesis . I’m slightly nervous about it because it means my bachelor’s coming to an end.
Ah, but it’s good times!
