this whole blog thing is still a bit of a strange concept to me - writing my thoughts for the public to read, judge, criticize, appreciate, relate to...? seems a bit nuts especially since i'm not one to wear my heart on my sleeve. but i think it's something i will grow to enjoy. especially while i'm away. and missing all sorts of people and places. i plan on sharing my thoughts, photos, ideas and of course general updates on my life in amsterdam here. so this is only the beginning. welcome to my life of ordinary occasions!
