Happy holidays!

27 Dec

Merry christmas guys! I love winter: family, the decorations, the food, just about everything! And yes, I know today´s december 27th, sorry for being a bit late.. Anyway, we had diner with the whole family on the first day of christmas! Everyone was there, which doesn´t happen very often :/ It was really nice talking to and laughing with everyone even for just one day. Got to know a little more about uni in Leiden, my cousin studies there, and she said they have an excellent exchange program. Leiden +1 🙂 My other cousin who got married this summer told us about her being pregnant! Which means my grandparents are going to be great grandparents in just a couple of months; they couldn’t possibly be happier about it. Grandpa made a little speech at the end and his eyes were a little watery as well. You rock grandpa!

Oh and might you every come across him: never ever challenge him at playing cards! Man he sure kicks ass lol. Him, dad and I saw a package of cards lying on the table last weekend and we couldn’t resist the temptation.. Final score: grandpa 550, dad 470 and I had -50 lol. I’m getting a little better at it though, there’s still hope for me haha.

As I told you in my last post I love volleyball. We were supposed to have an end of year tournament today at this very moment, but it was cancelled :(. There weren’t enough people who joined, just like last year.. And there’s no match till the 12th of january, which totally sucks! I guess I’ll have to find something else to enjoy myself then, like taking more photos and posting them on my blog 😛 I just checked and I haven’t uploaded a single photo yet, I should do something about that in the coming days.

I hope you’re all having a lovely holiday wherever you are. Hopefully it’s snowing there right now, because there is no snow to be seen here..



Another blog…

13 Dec

Hello there! This is my very first personal blog and I’m rather excited about it! Now this is going to be about my life, so I might as well introduce myself. My name is Richard and I’m from Holland. English is not my mother tongue, so please correct me if I make any mistakes 🙂 I’m still in high school, in my fourth year, with two more years to go after this one! Not really excited about it, it’s very boring. Lots of homework and tests.. :/

But enough about school for now. One of the things I really like to do is playing volleyball! Our team consists of boys and girls and we’re at B-level. As for volleyball in Holland you go from level 1 to 6, than C, B & A. It’s a lot of fun but we’re not super good at it. There are seven other teams in our competition and we’re currently 5th. We train for 1.5 hours every tuesday and we usually have a match every saturday or so.

There are of course lots of other things I like to do. What I remember doing in the past two years is just a lot. First of all, there was drawing, at which I really suck lol. Then there was a time when I was really into 3d: modelling, compositing and programming were my main interests back then. You could say my laptop isn’t really suited for this kind of work as it crashes every hour or so lol and so I gave 3d up as well. As you can see my interests shifts every couple of months, so it might be Korean until the end of this year and something else after new year’s eve. Although I’m pretty sure I’ll keep Korean for a long time to come. I’d love to go and study there and maybe even live there…

That’s my life summed up, at least the most important parts. Oh and there’s only one week left before the holidays! Woohoo haha. I’ll write something about it as the whole family is going to gather on the first day of Christmas. I think I’m going to write something on here every week or so, with some photos of course! So stay tuned and please subscribe to my blog!
