This post recaps my month, from personal life to books I’ve read & bought, movies and TV shows I’ve seen and links to posts that interest me.
I had two parties from my boyfriend’s family. His aunt and uncle celebrated their 40-year of marriage and his other aunt celebrated her birthday. I don’t have such good connections with his family, but these two days weren’t too bad.
I celebrated my 7-year anniversary with my boyfriend. We went out to dinner at a Thai restaurant and that food was DELICIOUS. Wow. It was spicy, but in such a way that it made the flavours stronger. I had a brown curry with rice, shrimps and different vegetables, yum.
I HAVE A JOB.
Ten minutes after the interview I got a phone call telling me they had a short discussion and they were so positive that they immediately decided they wanted me! So, starting January 2016, I’m finally an official Microbiological technician in a hospital on the Medical Microbiology department.
I decided to participate in NaNoWriMo with the intention of staying motivated to write. I never thought I would win it, but with 32.000 I’m really happy with myself and I can’t wait to finish the story in my own time.
I’m a big fan of Mumford and Sons, so when I heard they were coming to The Netherlands in 2016 I knew I had to get tickets. The day of the ticket sale I sat in front of my computer refreshing the page over and over again: and in the end I did manage to buy them! I’m going together with my sister and I can’t wait to see them live.
I celebrated Sinterklaas (Dutch event, my friend Debby explained it in her Sinterklaas 101 post if you are interested) with my boyfriend’s family. We always make a surprise and buy one little present for everyone else, together with a poem. It was fun and I ate way too many sweets.
I had a book club meeting. I failed to read the pick, but as you can see in this recap I didn't have much time to read at all. I have seen the movie lots of times though, so I do plan to finish it (Anne of Green Gables) Good food and for the first time not a terrible service.
Alexa officially announced this awesome news: I am one of the three co-hosts for the 2016 Love-a-thon! We are already busy with planning and it’s going to be great!
