#2278 – A Long Weekend!

ENGLISH We are currently in the middle of a long weekend here in the Netherlands, as this weekend is the Easter weekend! Yay! 😀 But here in the Netherlands, the public holiday is on Monday, i.e. tomorrow, instead of this Friday. This is also why I use the word “middle” above, haha. So this Monday…

#2276 – Finally, A Weekend!

#2234 – Photo Tales (53)

ENGLISH Photo #116 My new Nike shoes are white (well, “beige” actually, but whatever, you get the point I guess, haha 😛 ), a color shade which I have been quite into in recent months. One thing that I had in mind, before finalizing my purchase was my “worry” of the shoes’ “tendency” to get dirty…
