Amaryllis by Eszies-Eszie
Amaryllis
My family in law has some little game they do every year. Grandmother buys the bulbs for the different househoulds. In short, if I'm right, my sis in law, mother in law and two aunts in law have these bulbs too. And the winner of this game is who can grow the most flowers. My mother in law is first now, she has six of them. Secretly, I'm hoping for more ;)

Jeez, I don't go on dA for a few days, and things change around here. 

At this moment, I don't feel well and I've been at home the whole day *boring* Before you ask, no I didn't finish the next chapter, but I got a little bit futher than before. 

We don't have a Christmas tree yet, because they are all too expensive according to my bf, so we have to wait some times. 

What did I do those times? Working, voluntary work, getting back in touch with people from my old study and more work. And gifts. The few last weeks, Holland had some extra gifts to give. On Dec. 5th, we celebrate Sinterklaas. (more about the guy found here:  Sinterklaas and Santa Claus Can you hear the difference?
Here in Holland, we have some kind of 'extra' holiday. It's on the evening of the 5th December and it's called ' Pakjesavond' (giftsnight). This is part of a huge holiday which starts at the 14th of November, when Sinterklaas enters The Netherlands. This holiday has everything to with a man called 'Sinterklaas'.
Sinterklaas is an old man, with a white beard, a long red cape, wears a white bishop's dress and red mitre, a bishop's hat and holds a crosier (a long gold coloured staff with a fancy curled top) He carries a big book that tells whether each kid has been good or naughty in the past year. He traditionally rides a white horse, which is called 'Amerigo'.
Maybe this man reminds you of somebody and when you're thinking about Santa Clause, you're absolutely right. I'm not going into detail here, but as far as I'm concerned is that Santa Claus comes from Sinterklaas, although they are both considered as based on a Saint called Nicholas of Myra.

) So that meant the Dutch people and especially kids can get more gifts, it depends if families do exchange gifts with Christmas or not. (My family for instance didn't do that, because it wasn't really a Dutch thing back then)
So, I got some gifts too :) I got a rendeer whose neck can be enlarged (So it's like a giraff-rendeer...) It's cute ^^ I got some scratch-advent-calendar, a LED-candle (it changes light when you lit it up) and some more little stuff. 

But about the title of my journal. 

I did some thinking the last weeks and I decided to make a bucket list. I thought "Why not?" Things I always wanted to do or see or something like that. I got my life ahead of me, so I have some long time to do these things. 

Here it is: 

1. Get married to the man I love (plan in progress ;P
2. See 'War of the Worlds'-musical live with Jeff Wayne. (too expensive at this point in my life)
3. See the biggest movies from Tom Hanks (he's exactly 30 years older than me :) ) (I've seen the Green Mile, Cast Away, the movies from Dan Brown and a few others already. But I don't think all of them)
4. See the biggest movies with Morgan Freeman (He's such a good actor and yes, I've seen the Bucket List, needed a lot of tissues)
5. Meet Stan Lee in person (I know I have to hurry since he isn't the youngest anymore)
6. Go to America
    Go to the Smithsonion
    Go to the Kennedy Space Center
        See the Space Shuttle for real :woohoo:
7. Be a voice actor (just because it can)
8. Get something published (either a book or a poetry book)
9. Get some serious money (again, just because it can)
10. Getting back the job I dearly love: being a guide for a space museum (or a comic museum, I think I would love that too)
11. Go to Athens
12. Drive an old car (like a VW beetle or an old Ford)


That's all I have at the moment, maybe more later.

Hiya!!!

Just had some time to give you an update on my life. 

It's still kinda hard, but I'm getting through. 

Still not having the job I want, hopefully it will happen soon!!!

My bf and I are doing great. I'm still kinda getting moved in, not everything has a proper place yet. (I finally got a dresser for my clothes!!! ^^; )

My bf's birthday is coming up, so time to hide the gifts ;P

My in-laws are still awesome (I'm going to help my mom-in-law to create her own facebook account :lol:)

Of course, I have still contact with my own parents (they're at least an hour of travelling away, so I don't see them that much) And next week, they come and visit (and I still need to clean everything ^^; )

And no, I still haven't finished the next chapter... I hope to get some time this week, although I don't think so

More... Erm... It's late now here so I guess I go to bed anytime soon...

(Plus, I'm very excited, because Jeff Wayne and his War of the Worlds musical will come to Holland soon. But I don't have the money to get to see them real life... *sigh* If you haven't seen it or heard it, you should see this: 

It's the old version, which is my favourite version. And those first seconds of music, they are stuck in my head forever, I guess. And yes, my bf and I have the same interest when it comes to this. At our first date we discovered that we both knew Jeff Wayne and his musical... which is really weird. (It's like finding a man who also loves The Secret Show or something like that. It's like that rare)

So, that's all, basically. 

Lots of love and xxx'jes
Eszie

I sent an angel to watch over you last night but it came back.
I asked, "why?"
The angel said, "angels don't watch over angels."
Twenty one angels are IN your world.
Ten of them are sleeping, Ten are playing, one is reading this message.

Send this to ten friends including me.
I guess if I don't get it back I'm not one of them. As soon as you get five replies someone you love will quietly surprise you.
Please read, not joking. God has seen you struggling with something. God says it's over. A blessing is coming your way. If you believe in God send this message on. Please don't ignore it. You are being tested. God is going to fix two things BIG tonight in your favor. DROP everything and pass it on. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Don't break this chain. Send this to 14 friends in 10 minutes. It's not that hard
