Eindhoven bores me, making as many trips to Amsterdam as possible. Gaypride and my wonderful friend Loikie.
One day I'll have a winterhome in Amsterdam, something small and cute with a roof to sit on and a wooden floor. Today I decided that living in Sweden during the winter won't be good for me, so I'll live there during spring and autumn, summer is for england, winter for amsterdam.
One can dream, right?

Don't hurt yourself on the slippery iced streets.

(last two are views from the window in my room in Eindhoven)

Autumn with it's fallen leaves and warm(ish) sunny afternoons, has left us. It's getting too cold and only getting colder. My skin is constantly itching. I only like winter when there is snow and I only like snow when I don't have to go outside if I don't want to and when there is a nice sun shining to make everything look beautiful.

So let's just skip to spring, shall we? It's my favourite season.

Snaps in the Academy with my olympus x-a1. I like how it can be big and empty one moment and small, cosy and cluttered the other. It's the place that I feel most at home at, here in Eindhoven. Even more so than in my own house.
Last picture is my friend Lotte. We share a love for Sweden, among other things. She's sick now, I hope she'll be better before tomorrow because we had a little potatoeprintparty planned out. Sausages on sticks and nicelooking words.

069 - 19

Today I turned 19. I think it's an ugly age.
I spend the weekend at my parents house to celebrate with my best friends and some family. My mum made me this beautiful beautiful cape and I got a bamboo tablet, a map for my drawings/pictures/paintings and a tubething for drawings as well. And I got two books and a t-shirt and a vibrating duck and a selfmade hat, a selfmade brooch and a bottle of sprite. I also got money for a kånken bag :)). So I definitely had a lot of nice presents.
We ate amazingly good desert.
Today was the first day of the new period in school. It started out really good. We got to take pictures in the studio. Studios and lamps and good cameras make me excited.

A friend is coming over in a bit. Lovely.

Yep I passed LAB, I'm really happy.
Now finally some free time. My birthday is on monday so yesterday I had an early birthday party in Amsterdam, which was really nice (and I got photographed for vice, so I felt loved again, in eindhoven they just stare at me when I wear something weird). Tonight friends are coming over and sunday some family and monday the second half of the first semester starts. Quite excited.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend and week.

Oh and something else:
If you maybe want to exchange packages with me, just let me know :) Now that I dont have to be in school from 9 - 10 anymore, I'd like to make more personal stuff and keeping it all to myself is boring, so I could send it out. That's even more fun if you receive something nice in return. Anything will do.

Some of the things I made this week. Wooden chair, Aluminium (metal) chair in horrible quality because there was no light today and some 3D tiles (made it out of clay first, then made a mould out of that, then made these tiles from clay again using the mould).
Tomorrow is the evaluation. I still need to do some stuff tonight, but then I can go to sleep. I really hope I made it. I'm doubtful, but we'll see.

I feel like I'm re-living my childhood. Doing the same things. Note the birdhouse in the topcorner.
That was an amazing house we lived in, I spend my entire childhood making stuff. We would make a dollbed, or a birdhouse or skateboard ramps or just loads of paintings. We had a huge workshop (my dad was still a furniture maker back then) where we could hang around in our old clothes and there was always something to do. I'd like to have a house like that when I'm older and when I have kids.

This is my last day of LAB, then tomorrow I should be finished. I'm glad. Looking forward to dressing normally again, watching movies, seeing my friends and sleeping.

Got one chair finished, you can actually sit on it. I'm proud. I'll show pictures later on. Now finish this bean that I am making.. And some more stuff. yay.

Lots of love,

Sometimes people draw me. I like it. The last one is by me because I forgot my studentpass once and you had to give them a pass with your photo. I wish I could draw better.

This is me by Martin (flickr / blog) in his room in Sweden.

This is also the outfit I've been wearing pretty much nonstop. My new motto: as long as it doesn't smell and it has pockets, it's fine by me. It's funny how I've changed. Last year I wouldn't dare to go out without a perfect outfit and my hair and make-up done, while now I just don't care anymore if I'm covered in dust or plaster because it's bound to happen anyway and everything that comes into the mechanical workshops (where I spend my entire day from 9 till 10) will come out dirty anyway, so it doesn't make sense to wear something clean every day. hihi. Also, these Zara pants are the most comfortable thing on earth. I love them.

These days I listen to: Palpitation, Fleet Foxes and Warpaint.

Finished today: Birdhouse.
It's called 'Huisje in 't Groen' which is literally translated as 'Little house in the green'.

I've successfully made my way through Activity and Mobility, now hopefully I'll make it through Lab as well.
See how this blog slowly turns from a fashionrelated blog, into a blog about nothing, into a blog about the things I make at school? I don't think many of you like it, but I can't really be bothered by that, I like showing what I make.

Back to work now. It's cold here and a big big mess.

Chairs are all I think about these days. Taking a day off today to work on my birdhouse. Only 1,5 week to go, wish me luck. After that: free time and my birthday (22 november)!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

I just came back from Malmö. It was lovely. I love Sweden to pieces, everything (most things) is so cute. And Martin was really really lovely as well, so it was good. Now I'm back in the Netherlands and I miss it already. I will move to Sweden one day.
I didn't take many pictures because Martin is an amazing photographer and I'd feel just stupid if I did. So hopefully some of the pictures he took will appear on his blog some time in the future. (Oh and once you're there, download his mixtape. I've been listening to it for days and I love it)

(for the halloweenparty on saturday, we dressed up as toiletpaper and plastic)
