Suddenly 30


Suddenly, 30.

Some day you wake up and realize that you got there: suddenly you are 30 years old.

Yes, I also had nightmares about this day.

Ten years ago I thought about how I would be now. I could see myself working very hard in a worldwide known company, earning tons of money, living in a beautiful and huge place, buying everything I wanted and spending the weekends sailing around the world.

In those last ten years, however, I dreamed much more than I actually did; I messed things up probably thousand times more than I did them right and as a consequence, no, I am not that person who I supposed I would be.

Meanwhile I knew some worth people and many others who showed me that not everybody is worthy!

I have no idea of how many times I changed my mind and because of that, many people called me crazy. I carry no hard feelings about them. Really.

I worked with enthusiasm in order to earn enough; Maybe I failed on keeping focused sometimes. People also call me lucky. Of course I am. And I am glad I am!

Yesterday was my 30th birthday. I took the opportunity to thank life for all my successes, but the truth is that I am even more grateful for all these things that I have not accomplished.

Well, I had an amazing day boating in Amsterdam Canals with some lovely people who are also important part of who I am now.

Thank you for all of you that spent a while in order to write me a message, make a video or phone call.

I wish I could thank you all in person, but unfortunately the teleportation project is one of those many things that I left behind!!!

Nieuwe taal nieuwe ik

Door het leren van een nieuwe taal heb ik een "nieuwe ik" ontdekt. Bijvoorbeeld, met betref tot netjes spreken, zou mijn moeder (als ze Nederlands kon), heel trots zijn. Ik ken en gebruik in deze taal
