Life is so fucking epic right now.
I’ve made a ton of (local) vegan friends in the last few weeks. I also made it a point to join in on activities more.
This sunday we went to Haarlem (near Amsterdam) for a vegan meetup. We took a few electric boats out for a ride through the canals, there was sushi and small wraps to eat. We had the discussion boat because vegetarians. The weather was amazing despite forecasts being negative.
Later there was a bbq in the park (with speed dating for singles), after that we went to a salsa night thing and did a workshop. i actually did the thing. I’m fucking amazing ok (i’m alright). Never danced with that many men, so awkward.
We stayed the night and had epic brunch, during which i had the idea to organize a ~workshop/lectures/??? in which we focus on better activism. Things like non-violent communication, media training, assertiveness, shit to help you talk to others basically, lots of people get hella frustrated and flustered (I do too). Later on, during the train ride back to Eindhoven we had more ideas for it and got pretty excited to organise it. Not for a while though, since I’m gone until september, and Geesje is studying. We’re hoping later in the year.
Thursday I’m off to have dinner at Janneke’s (one of the locals), she is sosososo nice - she actually lived in NYC for a couple years with her (now) ex, so we hella relate right now as that’s where I’m trying to go. She’s just started making and selling chocolates that are sosososo good. She’s all around lovely is what i’m trying to get at and I look forward to thursday.
& Friday I go off to NYC.
Apart from all this, I’ve been doing a workout plan thing, I’m in the last week of four, and I’m gaining hella strength and stuff, I’m really excited. They’re tough as fucking pulling teeth sometimes but I’ll be damned, I’m finishing every workout, feel like a vegan warrior when I’m done.
So yeah… just had to get that out because I’m so pumped I need to fucking share, I hope you’re all having an amazing summer also. x
