far out brussel sprout


í was really sick about 2 weeksd ago, coughing non-stop, and unable to get any sleep. i took a week off uni to recover, little did i know that the next week was swot week, and we had no classes either. so i skipped two weeks and turn up again, and now i'm busy apologising to the teachers, and asking them not to fail me.

i'm pretty much all well again. i think it will all work out okay.

i went to belgium on tuesday, and spent a couple of hours in brussels. it was a long train ride but it was worth it because it means i have been out of the country now. it was funny hearing people speaking french, and i went and bought a new coat and jumper. i saw the mannekin piss, and some church, and the magnificent square, and lots of poor beggars as well. i also had a royale with cheese at mcdonalds, like in Pulp Fiction. saturday i went to amsterdam. it didn't seem like a very interesting place from what i saw. it was nice to be in a big crowd of people again though. i had some "space chocolate" which did nothing except make my stomach warm. we went to a sweet cocktail bar, and then we went home. i got a army surplus russian army style cap that looks ridiculous, but is very warm


anyway, i'm still here. halfway through term now as well. hopefully i pass, otherwise i'll be spending another semester at uni...
there's some random photo's i've taken as well, now on my flickr site, HERE!!! mostly they're probably pretty boring though, there's not much of interest. i seem to have spent a lot of time indoors, in the student apartments.
