It's OK, I'd be grumpy too if I didn't own a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles poster.

Spring Time

One thing I will definitely miss about Turkey (if we ever leave) is how pretty spring is. There are so many flowers! (Also fruit, but that’s not for another month *sigh*) I’ve been taking a lot of pictures of the buds, bugs and blooms and thought I’d share some of them. I’m not gloating I promise! I would actually trade places with anyone who currently has snow. ON TO THE PICTURES!!

Snow drops? I don't know...

Amsterdam 2015

This sign was behind the Rijksmuseum

I can’t believe that it was only two weeks ago that we were in Amsterdam. It feels like it was forever ago. I was shocked to discover last night that I hadn’t written a blog post about it, so here it goes.
We went to Holland because Dad had some work related meetings. Then oh lucky us, we got to come along, Mom, Sam, and I. We were only there for 4 days (from the 4th to the 8th) but we managed to 
see quite a bit.

Blooms on the trees the morning we left

View from my seat on the plane. 
The flight wasn't full so we were allowed to switch seats. 

An adorable car driving past our hotel

Canal and bikes (oh goodness there were a lot of bikes!)

Windmills at the Zaanse Schans

This guy is busy spinning on his head.

 Fishing village we visited

Also I made a vlog while we were there. It's okay-ish

A Random Comic and the best tea commercial pretty much ever

Thanks to Johanna, I now like Boromir (thaaaaaaaank sister, you're the best) Short story shorter, I drew this comic for all us people who sorta wish he hadn't died.

Here's that link to the tea add.

Monthly Report Cards: March 2015 Goals

It's a great day, the sun is shining, the tank is clean.
But I digress.

I’m very pleased that it’s March, but at the same time, in the back of my mind I’m saying,
“Really?! MARCH? Didn’t we just get here, like a month ago?”
But that’s not to say that I’m not looking forward to this summer. I’m just trying not to get *too* excited yet :P

Okay on to goals for this month:

Write more than two blog posts
I was shocked to log in the 26th of February to find that my latest post was goals for that month. I think I’m letting this whole blogging this slide just a little. I’m going to try to get back into the swing o’ things this month.

Work on my water colours
 I finally got some watercolour paper. Only trouble is, I’m not as good at it as I’d like to be.

Spend lots of time outside
It’s been cold. But now that it’s not I don’t really have an excuse (except that there is nothing to do outside :P )

Sew a cover for my dress form.
Not sure I’ve mentioned it, but I finally got a dress form made. I’d like to try my hand at making a cover for it.

Finish this next draft of my story
