Tear drops…

25 Jun 2012

Of course this last one is an emotional one. I will miss my topic list, since I didn’t get to write about all the topics I had in mind and all of the people I met here.  I will also miss all the feedback you all gave me. Enough of that emotional stuff, for most […]

My weekend!

In: Clarissa Alberg

18 Jun 2012

This past weekend was crazy for me! Since singing is one of my passions, this is also something I pursuit next to school. If I will ever make it to the big leagues, that’s is something else, but for now I am enjoying every part of it. For the past 4 months I have been […]

Le’ Exams

11 Jun 2012

We all want these last weeks to be over with and head home. Most of us have already bought a ticket (or at least looked at how much a ticket will cost). One of the hardest things to do, is staying focused knowing that the end is near and the Euro Cup is on. Especially […]

If there is one thing I have grown to like very much in Holland it is the Dutch rap. Why I like it is basically because of how most of these rappers use their words. With my cultural background their use of words makes me feel at home away from home. The words they use […]

The sender, the message or the messenger. Which one is important? After hearing that a dog bit the little boy, who delivers the newspapers here, I was very sad this past week. Another friend of mine also had a clash of words with the boss due to a wrong message from another employee. As she […]

According to the Christian, Islamic and Hebrew Calendars, Sunday is the first day of the week. The name of Monday is derived from Old English Mōnandæg and Middle […]

I just happen to run into the right people with extraordinary stories. As I just plunged into a train seat on my way from Rotterdam to Amsterdam I planned to read through my notes and prepare my next article when I heard a deep voice asking “Is this seat taken?” I saw a slim, light […]

If you weren’t locked up in your room yesterday studying, as you should be, because that’s what we came to Holland for, there was no way you could have missed all the festivities outside. It was Queen’s day! On this day we here in Holland and also at the Netherlands Antilles and Aruba, celebrate the […]

Marathons!

In: Clarissa Alberg

23 Apr 2012

April 14th we had the yearly Marathon here in Rotterdam. Anyone who wanted to participate could participate either as in individual or as part of a company or team.   This event locks downs or changes the entire upper-ground public transportation and fills up all the subways to the point of suffocation, but everybody is […]

The campus nowadays looks like a bad jungle movie mixed with that sandy level in Mario on the very first NINTENDO (minus beautiful trees and animals, but you understand me). With all the construction taking place and all the horrible drilling sounds during class, all we can hope for is an amazing final result. Everyday […]
