Time away in Granada, Spain

November 5, 2017 | holiday
Since the beginning of the 2017-2018 academic year I've been travelling around in planes, getting up at ungodly hours in the morning, all to be able to visit my girlfriend in Granada, who's currently doing an Erasmus semester there. Although it's tough, it's also quite great to be able to leave the cold, the wind and the rain of the Netherlands and go on a mini little holiday once a month.

December 25, 2016 | Sleep, Experimental
Christmas Day. 6:30am. I'm writing this because I now have an ungodly amount of time at my disposal and without too much pain to stay awake. Yesterday I started again with the everyman sleep schedule. Yes that's right; again. For at the end of last week, I came down with quite an awful cold which knocked me out solid for a couple of days.
