I haven't been spending as much time on the computer as usual, but I haven't been accomplishing anything interesting either. Although, a few neat things have happened recently.
I've gone and found myself some volunteer work. It's just one day a week for three hours, but it gives me AMPLE time to practice my Dutch. Plus I was able to get lots of the signatures I need to finish up my "integration portfolio." I'm working in a verpleeghuis, which is a nursing home. The place is this enormously gigantic complex with different levels of care. I'm back in quiet little bungalow style accommodations with some residents who have mild dementia, are very very old, or have had strokes or other neurologically damaging things happen. I'm there during lunch so I help with meal prep, table setting, feeding, and cleaning up among other things. Today was my second day and it seems to be going well so far.
My amaryllis finally bloomed. The blossoms are dying a little bit now, but I wasn't sure it was going to bloom at all this year! Hopefully the tulips and daffodils will start blooming soon too. I've had enough of winter. Spring will undoubtedly be soggy, but at least it won't be so stinking COLD!
I've been trying to find plane tickets for our trip to the US this summer and I'm thinking of selling organs to fund the trip. Anyone need a kidney or a piece of my liver?
Someone made a sock monkey out of Legos. I'm impressed.
Speaking of sock monkeys, I've been working on a super secret project. If I don't die of sheer frustration before I finish, I shall hopefully be unveiling it in the next week or two. Now aren't you all curious and excited? Oh, well... you SHOULD be!
