A day out of the life of...

I've been quite busy lately, and that mostly with college life. I thought it wasn't very intresting to keep all of you bothered with it on a regularly basis, but I've decided to dedicate one blog to it anyway. I'll describe a day out the past week, which can basically be multiplied times 5 and you have an idea of how this whole week looked/looks like (the weekends are slightly different, but include unfortunately right now a lot of school work as well). The same most likely will go for the next two weeks.

7:15 - 7:30 Alarm rings and me hopping out of bed; normally it doesn't include all too much snoozing. I'm fairlsy soon awake.
7:30 - 8:30 Breakfast, getting dressed and biking to school; stereotyping Dutch people here: I do bike to school every day.
8:30 - 12:30 Either lectures or start of project work; we have 10 weeks projects where we do research and analyse the market for a (real) hotel right now. Lots of fun, but also a lot of work.
12:30 - 13:00 Mostly about this time we take some time to have lunch; college students need to eat too right?
13:00 - 16:00/17:00 Project work; depending on how much we (still) have to do we spend the rest of the afternoon on project work as well.
17:00 - 18:00 Somewhere about here I'll be starving as I don't eat to much for lunch normally as the canteen at school is crappy expensive
18:00 - ... I'll spend the rest of my evening on working for my French classes or study for my upcoming exams (combined with fun skype conversations inbetween)

So there you have it, my currently not all too excited life. A lot of time goes into my exams right now. Next week friday I have my first one and the week after that the rest will go down, besides French which is the monday after that week. Of course, I do fun things as well, don't worry. I'm not that bad on myself. Tonight I'll be heading off to a friend for a drink as she will be leaving next weekend for 6 months to study in Spain.

P.S. I'm trying to line up some blog posts now and then when I have the time, to assure the blog keeps up and running while I'm busy with school. Any suggestions on what you want to read more about (Personal life, books, music, movies, fashion other things?), let me know!


  1. Your school days are really long! And so much work to do. I always take some food to school, so I don't always have to buy something. I really enjoy your book posts, but would like some music/movie maybe?!

    1. So far this semester has been my toughest at college, the hours we work on projects are seeming to get out of hand a little.

      And noted the preference for a bit more music/movie ;) (There's already one movie post lined up)

  2. School can really make you feel like you have no social life! :P I had a busy schedule the past couple of months as well. But I'm in the middle of my exam period, so luckily that other work has died down a little! Good luck with your exams!

  3. One blond distraction coming right up hahahahaha ;)
    no your school schedule is crazy.., and I am already complaining about mine wich is way more relaxed.
