Semester One, conclusion

I've learned a lot in the past few months. Not much more to add than that.
I've decided to start a company with my brother Joe, it seems like the logical thing to do. It also feels right. I can't imagine anymore working for someone.
I am too eager and curious to become an entrepreneur: building and growing a company from the ground up. My plans of world domination are becoming a reality :)

Other stuff:
I'm going to India, Mumbai to be exact, in January for a school trip. Hopefully I will get such a culture shock that I will return a changed person. The single most frightening thing though, is the disease issue. I'm just not used to being in an environment with so many health threats. And being the hygiene freak that I am, I'm likely to flip out a few times and overindulge in disinfectant wipes, iodine, bug repellent and anti-bacterial soap. I've already had my first round of vaccinations.
We'll see what happens.

The big city - ROTTERDAM!

So, i've finally moved out of my parents' house and into a nice student room in the center of Rotterdam.
I like it. I live on the 8th floor, i have a spectacular view of the river and the south shore, theres a T3 connection in the building (I love that) and my classes seem to be more interesting than my previous study.
I've started a new study by the way.
I'm doing a Master of Science in Business Administration. I'm specializing in Entrepreneurship and New Business Venturing. My hopes are to start my own business soon and I thought this would be good preparation.
So far, so good. Except these academic articles.
I cannot believe that people actually get credit for these amounts of bullshit.
In the words of Will Ferrel: Its mind-bottling.
Thats all for now.

The return to Blogspot

SO I haven't been to this site in almost 6 months.
Why would I? I mean no one really reads this and there is not much point to it..
But, what else am I gonna do at 2:20 AM in the morning when I don't feel like sleeping?

Here goes something..

Recently, I turned 22. Not much more to be added. Except that I had a great night. Very awesome birthday. During the day I studied for my GMAT exam, then I partied and got laid.
Like it should be.

Oh yea, I did a GMAT exam because its a requirement for the Rotterdam School of Management. Pompous boot-lickers. Ahwell, I don't care. I did it, got a pretty good score, now i'm just waiting for their reply. I really need to get back into school... I've been sitting around at home and it's driving me up the walls. So, fingers crossed that come September, I'll be in a new city meeting new people, learning how to take over the world.
Anyway, I'm at the training center that offers the GMAT to people, and get this: in order to verify my identity and 'log me in' my ID was checked and then a picture of me was taken AND then they took my fingerprint. THREE TIMES!
I guess my days of being 'off the radar' are over... They have my fingerprint now..

In other news; I worked as a private tutor for the last few months to highschool kids. It paid quite decently, until the school year ended..
Now I found a part time job at the local cinema. I figure, if I'm going to work a low paying job for a few weeks, it might as well be something close to what I love. In this case, movies.
I'll work a few days per week, make some cash that will pay for my holiday plans.
Wacken, Summer Darkness, and a fetish party with Margreet.

Thats all I have for now.

Tune in, toke up, and zone out.

"This is the End, my only friend...the End"

If you don't know that Doors song, you suck.

So its finally here. The end of my internship here at the Embassy. I've been keeping the boredom away with several activities, but no more.
I am soon returning to Holland, the country I am most comfortable in.
Today the goodbyes and the final sucking up is going to happen.
I need to ask the Ambassador for a letter of recommendation, my supervisor for one, and one more thing that I can't really publicize. Sensitive info, if you know what I mean.
All in all, I think it was a useful experience.
I know that I'm not really cut out for this kind of job, I'm too alive for it. I like freedom too.
Government positions are only interesting at the top. And I don't have time for that shit.
I'm too eager to start right away.

So I shall return to Holland. I have two job interviews lined up for now. Hopefully I can get one, if not, then I spend 7 months doing something at home... can't imagine what.
In September I would like to go back to school and get my Masters degree. I've found a good program in Rotterdam, at the Erasmus. Thats where the recommendation letter from the Ambassador comes in. He studied there and I would like his support in convincing the Admissions board that I'm a fit candidate for that school.
And now for something completely different.

I gotta go make a dookie.

I can be a nobleman for just 12 dollars

This is pretty cool.

And its only 12 bucks..
I'm seriously thinking about it..

I can be a Lord of Ladonia... awesome..

Not much fairness

My plans were kind of shattered.
I wanted to go to Vienna in September(2007) to do a Master study. Unfortunately, the university will not offer that program until 2009. So, I'm not going.
I'm staying Holland for another while, don't know how long exactly.
It kind of pisses me off because Vienna is my favorite city and living there is a dream.
I wonder which party-pooper is responsible.

Anyways, it looks like I will be spending the coming months in Arnhem, with my mother (yay), and doing something to keep myself occupied. No idea what that will be yet.
I need money, so I guess I'll find some crappy part time job or something.
Need money for the summer, for the festivals and concerts I want to go to.

Anyone know about a decent job?

New Blog look and a new Theory

So i decided to change my blog look, i find that it is now easier on the eyes and easier to read.
So, enjoy the new but slightly boring look.

And now the new "THEORY"
A few days ago i had a discussion with Chris, a good friend of mine, and we ended up discussing how a girls looks affects her character, if if at all, its the other way around.
Given that a girl is born with good genes and grows a nice pair of tits, will that asset turn her into a shallow whore? Or do all whores just have great bodies?
Is there a correlation?
I mean, sure there are exceptions, like some nuns. But who knows what they do after hours in the nunnery. Nunning themselves probably nun-fully.

However, I think that if a girl is of the right mental state (not necessarily the "correct" one) and she has a great body - she will end up a shallow slut. She will realize early on that she is a sex object and can get through life using that 'asset', hence dismissing any other elements in life that build a decent human being.
I'd like to hear some other opinions.
comment away.
