It’s that time of the semester again; meaning crazy workloads and deadlines and little time left. At the one hand it is the time when I am on my best (at least in terms of efficiency) at the other hand there is a serious risk of physically and mentally dying considering where I am and where I need to be.

So in times like these I need to remind myself to not go crazy or take everything too seriously. It’s just school stuff in the end. If I fail I’ll live and at least I know I tried hard. As a physical reminder I tend to wear a goofy cap with a propeller these days. I simply can’t take myself seriously whenever wearing it (sometimes I wear it during brainstorms as well when I feel blocked in my creative process).

And thankfully I have Lars to keep me company. I like having 3.30 AM coffee breaks with Lars. He understands me and my daytime distractions and nighttime working like a mad person.


I don’t know what I was thinking in that ‘chewing my cup picture’. Probably because I wasn’t thinking at all. I prefer to blame it on the time.

But for now, back to work…

    I knew a boy named Lars once. He was nice. And he was tall. Like 6’5. He talked too much though. Your Lars is probably a great listener!

    Good luck getting everything finished up!

    I’m pretty darn jealous of that cap. I don’t think I’ve ever wanted one before, but I do now! Love it!

    You are the best, the very best. So soon and you will be done. Keep the end in sight, cause we both know one way or another you are going to get there and everything is going to be done, so at least you are having fun along the way! :)

    All your comments really made me happy :) I have slept about 6 hours in the last two nights and then a simple little note can mean a lot, so thanks to you all!

    @ Mariana: Haha thanks :)

    @ Chandra: Haha, no my Lars is not that talkative. I was using an online converter to see how much that would be in meters; in The Netherlands people are really tall. All my uncles at my mom’s side are about that tall. (Btw, have you seen the movie ‘Lars and the real girl’? It’s a bit absurd but I like it; that guy doesn’t talk much either)

    @ Beckie: Haha you should get one as well! Then we can both wear one simultaneously! I don’t know if you can get one where you live, I got mine in a party store.

    @ Paula: Yes it is! I love their stuff as well (and of course it is Dutch which makes it cool ;))

    @ Sara: Thank you for your sweet words. Somehow it is really good to be reminded by someone else of that every now and then. So thanks :)

    I think it’s a marvellous idea to have such an obvious visual reminder to everyone that you are having a Crazy Time, and are most likely to react in an unpredictable way to otherwise normal situations. I might have to find one for myself, a sort of “Now Is Not A God Time” hat. Good idea!
