Hello from Drenthe

Hello, I am typing this from a vacation park in Drenthe (a region in the southern part of the Netherlands) where we have been staying for the last week. Nice and green here, only place in the Netherlands where you actually see trees. And it's above sea level! :O
We're staying in an old farm house type thing, only problem is the moths, who seem to enjoy taking refuge in my closet.
Yesterday I met this tiny girl on the playground (hey,I was playing soccer with my many siblings) who seemed to think I was her new best friend. Now she won't leave me alone. Cute, really. Funny how making friends when you are little is so easy. You just hit someone in the head with a lego block and, bam! you've made a bond for life(or at least for the next few minutes.) You do that as a teenager and you get called a creep and get a stilletto in your an adult you would probably get arrested for assault.
But anyway, having a good time here. Can't type anymore because I don't have any more coins for the internet. 1 euro for 8 minutes, what a rip-off.

MJ's memorial

Let's get this straight:

I didn't cry.
Didn't shed a single tear.
OK, maybe choked up a bit when his daughter burst into tears. But who didn't. :)

I really liked Brooke Shield's speech (I've always liked her...and of course she has a cool name, hehehe) and how she got pretty emotional. You could tell she was really missing him.
The whole feeling of the memorial was kind of clearing of MJ'S name, blotting out all the bad everyone has ever said and overwhelming everyone with the good. He has done so many good things, only he doesn't go shoving it up everyone's nose like other celebrities so he can quietly donate to lots of charities.
But no-one ever thinks of that, do they? Most people just think of MJ as a creepy kid-touching hermaphrodite, which kind of pisses me off.
The songs were really nice, and that kid who sang Who's Loving You should totally get signed. He is amazing.

Michael Jackson was the best effing entertainer of the century.
Actually, ever.
Don't you people forget that.

Rest in peace Michael.

Peace out.

Oh my gee.

I am getting quite addicted to two evils.

I know it's very sad, but once you get on there, you never find your way back out.
Sadly, it's very fun.

2. looking at for shoes
Looking at that site renews my faith in God, seriously.
He has to be a good Lord to reward his creations with such effing awesome things.

I want these shoes bad. Oh, materialistic me. I better find a way to make money pretty soon. DX

Summer has finally begun...

It's amazing how things can just turn around in a blink of an eye.
I'm over to the next grade, it's summer, and I have absolutely NOTHING to do.
And it feels great.
No obligations or responsibilities, no school, no grades to get up before the school year ends. I pretty much feel on top.

Things to look forward to:
1. My little cousin and aunt visiting from Sweden on Saturday.
2. Rotemy/Amalie coming in on the 5th
3. my piercing :) (I was allowed to get a cartilage piercing in my ear if I made it to the next grade. Well, now I have, so my mom can't say anything about it.)
4. 19 July, two weeks of vacation in Drenthe. I'm not actually sure if I should be looking forward to this, it could be dreadfully boring, because I've never been on vacation in my own country before.
5. 22 August.....of course, my own birthday.

Wish list (hopefully, some of these things I might get for my birthday):
1. a NEW CAMERA (my mama promised me this for my B-Day, I hope she follows through.)
2. posters/new curtains/calender to pimp up my room
3. an Apple iPod Nano (green)
4. a laptop...I'm not expecting this any time soon, I guess I have to save up for it with my own money.
5. a new bag for school...hopefully an Oilily.

MY BAG... *wantswantswants*
oilily green

6. a new agenda for next year....hopefully I'll be able to make a decision before then!!

Have a nice vacation, everyone!!!
