I’ve now been in Amsterdam nearly two months, and today is the first day that I’ve made it to a coffee shop to get some work done. Partly because of laziness, I think, but mostly because I’ve been trying so so hard to get into the good habit of being able to be productive at home (which, in this case, is our tiny/cozy little apartment on the canal). Well it’s been two months and that hasn’t worked out at all.

Couldn’t even be “productive” enough to post new things here.

But! Now I’m currently sitting in one of the many Coffee @ Company ‘s there are sprinkled around this city (is that right) and it’s a real coffee shop as opposed to an “Amsterdam coffee shop” (heh) and I ordered an iced Americano “with some room for milk” because that’s how I did it at Starbucks back home and… it’s so cute!! A couple sips later and I’m in love.


I’m not a coffee drinker at all. I actually really don’t like the taste. Especially the aftertaste. I don’t like that it sometimes makes me feel nauseous. But this is good stuff.

Hunter’s 23rd birthday is coming up in exactly two weeks and I’ve been deviously and very secretly planning what I want to do for him for the past few days and it’s been so much fun. I’m entirely way too excited, but also am not really sure I can actually pull off what I want to do… So. It’ll either be grand and amazing (decorations, food, presents, the whole package, all impeccably executed) orrrr it’ll be disaster. In any case, I’m sure he’s going to love it and I’m having the best time.

I FaceTimed my mom yesterday too, and she told me that my parents might have something coming this way for him too, if everything works out. Made me smile :). (Hunter, if you’re reading this, pretend like you didn’t.)

Okay since I’m supposed to be using this time/internet/caffeine in the name of productivity, I’m signing off now. Will leave you with this: http://www.demilked.com/men-and-cats-similar-poses/
