Hello and welcome back to Jorn’s blogging extravaganza !
What have I been up to in the past month ? We’ll start with the work related things. At the end of June I went to Ukraine again for work. It was a very productive (but extremely busy) trip. For once we didn’t have our schedule filled with interviews but we could work a bit with the people there so that was nice. We also did a team building event where we did soccer and volleyball. I scored my very first soccer goal in my life, I managed to get past the last defender (Kristof) and scored. So long sucker ! Afterwards we had a great barbecue with the team, with excellent meat. Yum !
The only other thing that remains to be said about work is that currently I’m on vacation until the end of July. So yeah, that’s good news also
First thing I did in my vacation was visit Valery. It had been since before Finn’s birth that I was over there so it was great being back, we had a lot of fun. We went to see the last Harry Potter movie which was pretty awesome and went to the Japanese restaurant again. Good stuff We finally started playing Portal 2, I had that game laying around for 2 months. It’s pretty awesome in multiplayer, really something up our alley. In the end I stayed a night longer than forseen, was having “fun” with shrinking and extending partitions
The rest of the vacation looks to be rather calm. The weather here sucks and will continue to do so for the next 2 weeks, nothing but rain. Nice. Tomorrow I’m going to the festival of Ghent for the first time this year. I’m going together with some people from work. I hope the raingods will smile upon us and stop for an evening, but I guess we’ll see.
In the past month I’ve seen 2 other movies as well, X-Men First Class (which was awesome as well) and Transformers 3. The last one, while spectacular, wasn’t really all that great in my opinion. I am a big fan of the franchise (cartoons) and well, they could have done better. Since this is the third movie I knew this going in, but there is always hope If you’re looking for pure action, this movie will not disappoint though.
Looking forward there is one other exciting tidbit I’d like to share, in 2 weeks we will book the camper and flights for our epic USA East Coast Road Trip Adventure. we are getting a great price through Thomas Cook so we’ll be able to come home with even more gadgets ! I wish it was March already !
Well I’m off to enjoy the rest of my vacation … cya on the other side !
