Hi, my name is Thinkie, welcome to my blog!
I'm a student in cultural studies, a museum enthusiast, a scrapbooker and an art journaler. I love to travel within Europe and I enjoy photography. You can read more about me on my homepage.

And in Dutch I enjoy:
I live, I love, I create, I capture, I learn, I enjoy.
In March...Polare, a large chain of bookstores, went bankrupt. They had a big sale of part of their stock. I filled several bags with books (they charged 5 euro a bag). I only bought two books for myself, the rest will be birthday presents and such. Later that day I had tea (tealess tea for me, off course ;-) ) with Roeland and his neighbour R..
It was starting to look and feel like spring. I had a nice afternoon walk in Zoetermeer with my friend F..
Later that day I visited Wilma and Fred to celebrate Fred's birthday (Maarten was ill so he couldn't come along). We had Greek take-out for dinner.
At Meermanno I started entering the Doeve collection into the collection database. We had a farewell reception for G., who had been sacked due to cut- backs. And at the end of the month, I worked with L. to get the digital newsletter ready and out the door.
Fran and I attended the Salon de Museologie. This month's topic was: 'what can museums learn from commercial blockbuster exhibitions?'
The monthly Friday night's drinks night in Leiden was fun. I learned a new trick using beer coasters.
I attended a study day in Amsterdam for city planning. Teacher Irmin herded his flock of students all around the city center. He had appointed each of us a building about which we had to give a 5-minute presentation on location. I got 't Aepgen, one of only two historical houses with a wooded facade left standing in Amsterdam. We got nice, sunny spring weather.
I caught a bad cold that kept me in bed for a while. Even using my laptop was too much for a couple of days, so nothing left to do than rest and read some light fiction. This happened shortly before my city planning exam, so I had to postpone it :-/
When I was feeling a little better I attended a monthly gathering with some friends and acquaintances. Still spring!
I met up With Jannet a couple times.
I walked around in Leiden with Bram.
Maarten and I went to see 'Her'. Kinda sweet.
Maarten and I attended B.'s birthday party. I ate too much chocolate profiteroles and shared last place when we played Boonanza.
Roeland and I went to see 'The Grand Budapest hotel'. Weird but all right.
My wallet got stolen. Thankfully my passport and my chipcards for public transport weren't in it, and I was able to block my bank card and credit card before the thief used them.
I attended the third James Bond-marathon at B.'s. Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton and good company, and waaay too much chocolate and potatoe chips. And some cheese and berries.
I went to church with P.. The religious aspect isn't for me, but he had convinced me that attending a service was a good way to experience a church the way it is meant to and get a look around. And P. doesn't go to church just anywhere: he goes to the historical Westerkerk in Amsterdam. As he promised, the organ music was good, as far as I could judge. It was an interesting experience. We had drinks along a canal afterwards, the weather was nice and sunny. After saying goodbye I walked around town for about an hour. Then I took a train to The Hague, where I met up with Maarten. We shopped for clothes for him and visited granny-in-law, who has recently turned 90.
