(1) Work was good today. I hope that soon I will have more concrete tasks to do. In the afternoon, we went to a thesis defense, and I watched someone recieve a PhD for the first time. It happened in this very old Dutch hall with pictures of eminent scholars of the past, (dead white men with great facial hair), hanging floor to ceiling. We had to stand when the committee entered, dressed in black cloaks, and then we watched them ask this PhD to be all sorts of questions, and then ultimately hand her a giant tube with her degree inside. Very intense and fun to watch.
(2) I played ultimate here today, and it was FANTASTIC. I had found online the ultimate club team and contacted them ahead of time, to make sure I would be able to play (and so I knew to pack my cleats!) Hopefully next weekend I’ll be playing in a tournament in Amsterdam!
(3) I made some new friends at my house:
Technically, they’re not supposed to be in my room, but a little play time/photo shoot can’t hurt right? Tomy was being bad, though, and didn’t take the clue when it was time to leave. Some more funny pictures of that, later… (Let’s just say some ladder-climbing was involved…)
If you feel like it, leave comments! It’s good to know if people are actually reading.
