Today me and Seb went to an appointment with Friésland College – the immigrant department. We met a nice teacher that helped me fill out forms and talked generally about how they were teaching people Dutch. I also informed her that I do not do well in groups, I shut down – literally. I can’t think or take in the situation during these panic moments. So hopefully, I won’t have any when I start next Monday/the Monday after next week. Seb is coming with me for the first lesson at least, I will ask if he can come with me for the second one too…
The appointment went fine, during it I was nervous of course, but nothing I couldn’t handle. But now when I think about how many people she said were on the lessons I get stomach pain and I feel nauseated. It is 8 to 14! 8 TO 14 STUDENTS IN ONE CLASSROOM… I get vomit-feelings when I think about walking into the classroom on either one of the Mondays and introduce myself (I guess I will have to) because these people already know basic Dutch – that’s what she said – and I barely know any, I can’t smalltalk… nothing!
I will have two different teachers, the nice lady on Mondays and someone else on Tuesdays – can’t remember if she told us/me his/her name or not. I am looking forward to the classes as a whole – I am there to learn Dutch damn it – with anticipation and anxiety.
I drew another picture today. Keiko and me, in anime format. I used a template from the manga “Nineteen, Twenty-One” but I tried to draw it more personalized. Which might have “failed”, I see too much of the manga in it – but I am proud of it anyway, it is sooooo cute!
Plus you won’t learn if you do not practice with it and I do not feel comfortable drawing while looking at the screen and not where the pen is going under my face. So I guess it is a pretty good start to keep at it, using templates to help build up skill level.
|Fake Eye Lashes|
- Fake eye lashes from Essence, eye-lash glue with it.
- 2+2 compressed spray-deodorants from Rexona, different smells.
- Lovely schampoo from Schwarzkopf and body-shower from Nivea.
- Some knäckebröd-snacks.
I also took some pictures of the canals outside Xenos in Sneek. They are beautiful, next summer I hope Seb and I will hire a boat together and boat around there for a couple of hours.
This is one of the cutest pictures I have ever done, even from the ones I did on canvases and paper. I failed with the fur of Keiko though, but you can see her in it anyway. I see now that I also missed some red colour in the face that I was supposed to remove… bah. Well, you can’t always succeed.
I also got rid of my Facebook. DUNDUNDUDUNNNNNN! Finally! I just decided that I did not need that poisonous crap called Facebook. I keep on getting frustrated that people use it as a diary or a “person” to talk to, every five minutes. Which I rather not be a part of. Plus, now I do not have to check that garbage every day and get nothing out of it. Well, if I need to get a hold of someone there is always whatsapp and normal texting.
