Weekly Photo Challenge: Pattern

Pattern. Well there’s a pattern in almost everything.
For this week’s challenge I’ve chosen pics of animals, because their skin/fur is so beautiful.

My fav? The peacock!

I took the pictures of the baby crocodiles and the turtles in Mexico when I went on an ‘eco-tour’. The baby crocodiles were crawling over each other; freaky but cool!
The turtles made a nice pattern by laying down in a circle.

The peacock, zebra, tiger and giraffe can be found in the Zoo of Barcelona. I love zoos and this one was very nice!
Oh, and the poop-picture? I thought it made a nice pattern 😉

Perfect Life

.
Yes I am smiling.
Can’t you see how happy I am?
I’m living the perfect life.
 
I got no reason to be sad.
No reason to cry, to scream, to hurt myself.
I’m living the perfect life.
 
Fuck my life.
I hate myself, my world, the way everyone is.
I hate my perfect life.
 
I’m alone.
I can scream if I want to, no-one will notice.
They think I’m living the perfect life.

 

*I set the shutter really low so I was able to move in the picture (it’s just one shot).

What’s your number?

Last night I wanted to watch an easy movie. Didn’t feel like paying much attention so I obviously chose for a RomCom. My aunt had suggested What’s Your Number, a movie about Allison who has had sex with 20 guys.

After reading an article in a magazine Ally realizes she can’t sleep with more guys, because the love of her life should be one of the 20 she already dated. Her neighbour Colin helps her to find all of her ex-boyfriends. Unfortunately, none of them is the one.

(not so) Exciting part: She ends up with Colin. Of course the bitch does. Why wouldn’t she? It is a romcom pur sang! After 10 minutes you already know how the story is gonna end. However, the movie isn’t boring. It’s predictable but funny. I’m a perv so I like the sex scenes, they’re really funny!

Directed by Mark Mylod. Written by Gabrielle Allan, Jennifer Crittenden and Karyn Bosnak. And starring Anna Faris, Chris Evans, Ari Graynor and others!

I’d give this movie a 6 out of 10. But I’d definitely recommend it if you’re in for a nice romantic comedy!

Bye Bye Queen Bea, Hello King Will!

The Dutch don’t really show any kind of nationalism except on Queen’s day and when the national soccer team plays. Queen’s day is one of my favorite holidays. We all dress up in orange, our national color, and enjoy the day off. This year I went to the Kingsday Festival in Amsterdam. Yes, Kingsday. Because for the first time since 1890 the Dutch kingdom will be ruled by a king!! King Willem-Alexander is the firstborn son of our former queen Beatrix. He’s married to the beautiful Queen Máxima. Together they have three cute daughters: Amalia, Alexia and Ariane.

Beatrix ruled for 33 years. She’s 75 years old so I think she should start enjoying her life.
I really like Willem-Alexander. He’s more modern than his mother and seems so friendly towards the people!
He’s not very handsome but the argentinean Máxima is beautiful enough for the both of them 😉

I’m sure our King and Queen will do a great job together. At least they make a nice couple.
Here are some pictures of the Queen’s/King’s/Coronation day:

Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above

So… This sucks! I always use pictures I really like for this challenge, but from above? Pfooo, tough shit!
I did find two pics that I kinda like… I took them in Leeds – England last year. I don’t really remember what kinda building I stood on, I guess a church or something. What I do remember are those stairs. Fkkk, my poor little legs could hardly bear the climb.

Anyways, my entry for this week isn’t really exciting. I guess I should go out more often and take pictures especially for this challenge. Maybe I will.

My Queensday 2013

I’ve been slacking on my blog. Last week I had finals and this week a friend of mine from Mexico stays at my house, so I don’t really have the time to post. I’m sorry 😉

April 30th: Queensday in the Netherlands. It’s a national holiday and everyone dresses in orange. There are flee markets everywhere and you can basically hop from party to party. It’s one of my favorite holidays since it’s like the only time the Dutch are showing some kind of nationalism.

I posted about the Kingsday Festival in Amsterdam before, the party my friends Isis, Puck, Fabian, Merlin, Alberto and I were gonna go to.

I woke up in Delft and was gonna meet Alberto in Schiedam. Alberto is a friend of mine who I met in Mexico during my internship 1,5 year ago. He’s been studying and living in Montpellier and decided to travel around Europe for a while. Of course he could stay at my house and it is amazing to see someone back after such a long time. It was so cool for him that he could enjoy this typical Dutch holiday. So if you ever wanna go to the Netherlands you should go around the end of April!

The Kingsdayfestival… It was nice! I had a lot of fun because of my friends but the festival itself wasn’t that good. The music wasn’t loud enough and worse: They ran out of food. How? Yeah good question. Besides safety and drinks, food is one of the most important things at a festival. The party started at 11 am and was gonna go on till 10:30 pm. We arrived around 3 and really wanted to eat something around 7. Wasn’t gonna happen. We decided to stay for a lil longer and then left early.

I guess the music was good. I don’t like squeezing myself into the crowd so I relaxed in the sunshine. The party itself was nice; no incidents. I had a lot of fun and so did my friends, but next year Imma go to a different party (:
