Well, well, it’s been three days since I returned home. I’m slowly trying to reacclimate to the materialistic lifestyle we have here in Holland. Let’s face it – it’s all about material possessions. Quite different from life in Suriname. I can’t help but think that people here in Holland, and maybe in other European countries, get upset about the smallest things while there’s so much more to think about. You know what I mean? In Suriname, everything is so relaxed. The country may be somewhat poor, but people there are still happy! There’s a lesson to be learned from that. I’m sure that after a couple of weeks, I’ll be back to our materialistic world.

I’m still enjoying my days off, not wanting to think about work. I’m in Tilburg right now. Yesterday, I visited Francois, hung out at his place, watched the movie ‘Saw,’ which I hadn’t seen yet, and had glasses of wine! ‘Saw’ was quite disturbing, and I’d love to see part two. Afterward, I met up with Gisela and Marthe and had dinner in the city. I’ll be heading back home tonight.

My left and right arms are completely messed up! Due to the sunburn, my skin is peeling off. It’s quite disgusting! I keep applying lots of lotion to keep them moisturized, you know!

What else is new? I’m gradually trying to catch up on all the Madonna excitement happening right now! I really want to see more shows from her tour. I’ve already got my tickets for the first Amsterdam show on September 3rd. I’ve had my days off approved for the end of August just in case I’m able to get tickets for Germany and Paris. You never know, right?

Two nights ago, I was a bit tipsy at home, and I decided to give my cousin Melissa in Suriname a call. I really don’t want to see my next phone bill. It was good to chat with her for a little bit. I also said hi to my cousin Romario and little Rochivan. I miss them so much! My loving family!

Anyway, I’ve already transferred all my holiday pictures to my computer. I’ll upload them to the photo album as soon as I’m back home. I think I’ve said enough for now. I’m considering a website redesign, but I’m not sure where to start! I hope I come up with something amazing while I’m still on my break from work. Redesigning and creating everything again is a lot of work. Oh well. I hope you had a great weekend, and I wish you a wonderful week ahead!
