Far away from home

This week has started really early for me, as I got into my car at 05:45 this morning to go to Groningen. For those wondering how far that would be for me: pretty far! Grotere kaart weergeven I’ll be here for three days, and two nights. All I can say is that Groningen is a pretty city, I hope I

Sports in Waddinxveen

This weekend, I’ve competed in a A,B,C,D-tournament at Conquesto, Waddinxveen. It is one of the nicer tournaments. Well organized, nice accommodation and nice people. I”ve played single, men’s double and mixed double in the C-level, with pretty nice outcome. I lost the semi-final in the single’s competition, and the same holds for the men’s double. The mixed double (with my

New job, no more car

To my dreading, it has become that time in the life cycle of my car: it had to go. No more *vroem-vroem*, or rattling, or flying low. No more noisy and loud acceleration, no more old Charade. Too bad it had to go, it was my very first car. I now have a decent substitution for it though, yet I’m

Whoa, that feels nice! I’m (finally) done waiting for the approval for my graduation! I’ve set up an appointment to deal with all the bureaucratic hassle that has to be dealt with at the university, but I’m not going to change a single letter of my thesis anymore. Done! yay! *celebrates* Update (2008-04-07): I’ve had to reschedule the appointment to

Being AWOL

As of today, your most favorited blogger is back. I went AWOL last week, to rest a bit and generally do a whole lot of nothing. So I did, and today I returned to the daily business of travelling to and from Nieuwegein. I’m really nearing completion of the thesis, so I’ll be posting updates soon!

Home shopping

There is a point in your life, when you and your partner decide you want to be together each and every day of the week, or at least as many days of the week as possible. This decision often is referred to as ‘living together’, which is the decision Kirsten and I made a little while ago. Yesterday we went

Mobility rocks

This morning, I got into my car, and went on my way from my home to Nieuwegein for work. After succesfully reaching the Rotterdam Ring, I took the southern route as the northern had 1km queue on it. Nothing bad there, and all’s well. Then, without previous warning I heard a somewhat muffled bang and saw quite large clouds of
