London, Laptops and Love

Monday, November 10th, 2008

I went to london and got more then a T-shirt. I got a T-shirt from Superdry, some comics, a book of Hunter S Thompson letters, Bottle Rocket and the hopfully good cult-film Alterd States. I also got to hang out with my friends, east curry on Brick lane and sit next to Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal while eating brakefeast. It was great.
The day before I left I spilld some beer on my precious laptop. I performed computer CPR on it and it pulled trough. But the space key is broken. I’m gonna haxx it open and clean it with industrial alcohol toningt. It will be interesting and a bit outside my confert zone.
Lastly there is a alpha footage trailer out for LOVE, one of the coolest independet games ever to be made. If you dont know anything about LOVE, take a look at rock-paper-shotgun.

What’s going on, Mr Intern?

Saturday, October 11th, 2008

So there have been a few weeks of hard work, and more of them are to come. I’ve grown the nasty habit of not being able to focus on work while I’m at my desk, blasted internet! But I’ve tried to make up for this by working elsewhere. Like today. A perfectly normal Saturday and I brought my sketchpad, a few markers, last two issues of Wired and Hey, Whipple, Squeeze this! to the pipe (or as it known in Dutch, de pijp) and spent a bunch of hrs slurping on a gigantic Latte or two (since I went to Coffee Company I got real late instead of the coffee verked or however it’s spelled that the locals call their latte/ou-lait bastard child) and trying my best to be the creative I still strive to be. Results on Monday when my CD will go trough last week’s work and kill ideas like alcohol kill brain cells.In other news: I still live in the cold apartment on Ben Viljonerlaan that i share with Regis. I’m now effectively forbidden for frying meat, got a warmer bedcover and plan to move out asap. I got kind of a good life in the weekends but need to find something to do to make me go outside the house on weeknights.
My regular night looks like this:
Stay longer at work, to compensate for arriving late/ being lazy during the day / not wanting to go home to the cold apartment.
Bike to AH, buy dinner, fruit and green tea and lemon ice tea,
go home,
cook food,
eat while watching TV,
clean up after dinner.
Now its 21:00 and I
A) log on to Warhammer Online to do some RvR
B)watch some more TV. Bed by 00:00 (but it often get postponed to 01:30).
Five Nights A Week!

I’m going to London in a bit for a weekend, more about that later.

Staus update

Friday, September 26th, 2008

I now live and intern propperly in Amsterdam. The guy that I’m sharing the apartment with hasn’t turn on the central heating, so it get cold at night and he has a phobia for frying things. He actualy leave the kichen if I take out the frying pan.

I’ve got the bike and now I’m biking 1,3-2 metric miles a day making my legs stiff and hopefully reducing my waist.

Work has kicked of this last week and I’m now actually doing stuff all the time. The projects are a bit hush-hush like thy always are in this biz.

Tings left to take care of:
Getting a bank account (harder then you might think, but I’ll pull it of tomorrow)
Getting people to come over and visit me. The problem with this one is that Regis, my housemate, has forbidden me to have people staying at the house.
Going to London to visit Anna and Sophia and maybe my cousin who all are living there.
Befriending some more people, right now I spend at least five nights a week in front of my computer watching TV.
Making Tribal pay for a gym membership.
Winning a few awards.

Doesn’t look to hard, does it?
