1.) Lifeguarding got canceled, but they signed me up for a second section of swimming in its place, so it's all good. Nine times a week, baby!
2.) R, H, and F (my housemates) can ALL make it to J-ville on Saturday the 29th for my one-day-early 21st-birthday dinner! This is a rare occurrence, that all four of us are free at once, so I'm really happy.
3.) I went to career counseling today and found out diddly squat. Possible careers for me, near as I can figure, are:
Have I forgotten anything? Please leave a comment if you have any ideas, or an opinion on the ideas I have. (Possible areas: travel, languages, writing, children, sports...) Yes, it is to the point where I could consider trusting a HaloScan comment box as to what to do with the rest of my life!
4.) I received a comment yesterday from Antonia, who is a Dutch speaker living in America. She thinks the non-Dutch speakers here may get confused by the dates being in Dutch (e.g. 'monday' = 'maandag'). I tend to think it doesn't matter - most of the days look reasonably similar to English and ALL of the months look the same, plus the date numbers are obviously a big clue - not to mention that the great blogging legend Belle de Jour used French dates - but please let me know if this is, in fact, confusing to you. Maybe I'm overestimating my dear readers' intelligence here. :) And Antonia, great to hear from you! I like your site, and your little boy is adorable! (Our of curiosity, where did you find my link?)
P.S. Why doesn't Blogger have a way to make it "12 januari" instead of "januari 12"? Then it would really be confusing (and correct!).
5.) R brought up the subject today of maybe getting an apartment together next year - she's been living here for 4 years now and is ready for a change. I'll be in Utrecht for the fall, but I'd definitely be in for something like that in the spring. She told me I'm the best roommate she's ever had (aww!) and I must say, likewise. After lazy K freshman year and self-centered S in Utrecht, R is a more than welcome step up.
6.) My financial aid is still not in, and I am bracing myself for a repeat of last semester. Don't know why it should be, but I'm getting that feeling. Cross your fingers for me.
