A little later than usual, but it’s still Wednesday, so I’ll allow it: another weekly! What have I been up to? Well, all there is to know will be said in about the next 400 words. So, if you’re interested, and I know you are, just keep reading. Or, press continue reading on the bottom right of this page if you haven’t already. HERE WE GO!
After last week’s holidays, it was time to go to class again today. But it didn’t go as planned. While I was at Haarlem station, the intercom said something about an incident, but he didn’t know the specifics, so we had to wait until he did. Five minutes later, he apologized, but the train wouldn’t be continuing to Amsterdam Central Station. Someone thought it was a good idea to jump in front of a train. Asshole.
Well, fuck. Luckily, in this day and age, I have a smartphone, so I could look up my alternatives. Trains were a no-go, so I had to take the bus. The first one was entirely full, so I had to skip that one. I snuck into the second arriving bus, and made my way to Amsterdam Station ‘Zuid’. I had to take Metro #51, but the only arriving metro on that station was #50. I had to take that one, go to the next station to switch to #51 and go to Nieuwmarkt.
But ofcourse, I didn’t go off the metro at Nieuwmarkt. No. I decided it would be faster if I got out one station before that, Waterlooplein. But what seemed like a good idea, turned out a 15 minute walk. It would’ve been faster if I exited at Nieuwmarkt, I know that now. Now I just have to remember that for the next time. I finally arrived at the university, a full hour late. Luckily I had sent my teacher an e-mail in advance notifying him of the situation.
Anyway, that was my trip this morning. The way back went smooth.
In other news, I had to work at my new job last monday for the first time. It was quite enjoyable, the computer system they use is severely flawed and outdated, but hey, if that’s the worst thing… Anyway, I have another day to learn it tomorrow, seeing as I have to work again tomorrow. Already looking forward to it. Nah, not really. I’m looking forward to my first paycheck.
By the way, have you seen the new header? Awesome, right? I think I’ll keep it this way, at least for a while.
Well, that’s it for this week. Didn’t like it? GTFO!
