Long time no see

'Meeting up with friends' and 'long time no see' would probably two titles I could give my past week. On tuesday I met up with a friend from High School who I hadn't seen for about one and a half year (besides a short encounter when we by accident met each other in the bus). We always used to bike to school together and we met up at that exact same  spot where I would always wait for her (or she for me, but mostly the other way around, haha). We went to the restaurant where we both used to work, so we catched up with some ex-colleagues as well, which was really nice.
I had the most delicious goat cheese sandwich for lunch, while talked for a couple of hours (practically non-stop). One of the subjects that had to come by was the TV-serie Friends. We've both been addicted to that show and still watch the re-runs regularly or otherwise the many bloopers that have surfaced over the years, admit it, that show is just hilarious, no matter how many times you have already seen it (well I think so at least).

This saturday I had the birthday from a friend, Yasmine, who I have to admit have seen more often to fall in the category 'long time no see', but mostly it does feel like that still. The weather was fabulous so we could sit outside, which was really nice and I don't even think I got sunburned. I had already given her her actual presents when we went to Walibi, but still made a card with one of the pictures that was shot when we went to Birmingham for a Vampire Diaries convention, as it is never a bad thing to be able to look at a picture with so many great actors (in this case Steven R. McQueen, Nathaniel Buzolic, Claire Holt, Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley and Malese Jow) with yourself propped in the middle :) It was a nice day and ended with my dad and me making a lot of bruschettas for dinner (I'll make a recipe blog post of that soon).

Sunday was again a time for another meet up with friends, this time with friends from my studies who I hadn't seen for about half a year as we all had been on internships scattered over the world. We went for lunch in Utrecht and tanned in the sun for hours with food and wine and a lot, a lot, a lot of talking. Three of us (including myself) had their birthdays while we were on internships, so we celebrated those as well. I got a lovely birthday card and some vouchers to spend on books/dvds or the like, which is always spot on for me.

So basically, I had a very good week, spent time with some of my friends, got tanned, laughed a lot and talked a lot, I really do not need much more (besides maybe seeing some more friends ;) )

Talk to you all soon again!


  1. Sounds like you had a great week, seeing friends again after a long time is always great :D And I agree, no matter how many times you re-watch Friends, it always will be hilarious to watch!

  2. sounds like an epic time :D

  3. Sounds like you had fun, although I already knew that, haha! :) Friends is amazing!
