I've been so focused on school the past week. Despite only a couple hours of class scheduled per day, I've been there for a solid 8 hours per day. I'm really trying to work on breaking my habit of procrastinating and it feels great. I've just had this kind of inner calm the last week. It feels great to be on top of things and not just play catch up all the time. After summer I'm taking a block delay to resit the courses I haven't passed yet from phase 2, and I'm determined to not build on to the pile of resits. I know that I have the capability to pass, I just need to focus and put in the effort. So far, so good.
You know what else is great?! Spring has finally come back to Amsterdam. It's been such a shitty spring so far, cold, rainy and gray. Put the last couple of days the sun has been shining and the sky blue. Yesterday afternoon when I got back from school I texted Carlotta to meet me down at the park, slipped in my Birkenstocks and packed a bag with a blanket, fruits and picnic necessities.
We sat down next to the lake, our toes in the cool water and our faces turned towards the sun. Put on some chill music, sipped on some rosé and just enjoyed the moment. When we started getting hungry, we ordered some Indian food to my place and got on our bikes. Afternoons like this is what I live for. But, I'm gonna put away my laptop now and get on my bike again to the gym. Now that I'm getting school routines in order, it's time to get back to moving my body regularly again. I've missed it.
