Birthdate:Dec 21
She's gonna dream up the world she wants to live in. She's gonna dream out loud.

Let's see. I'm 24 years old and I live in the Netherlands with my parents and my dog, called Abeltje, whom I love very much. My other dog sadly passed away, at the age of 11, on May 12, 2006. He was called Dribbel. I've recently finished my study to become an art historian and am now working on getting my master degree in the (Dutch) Golden Age.

I love music. A lot. I go to concert as often as money and time allows, both big names and recent gems. I recently noticed that I apparently talk a lot about music in this journal as well. Just a fair warning ;)

I like to see myself as a collector. I've been collecting comics since the ripe old age of 5. Besides comics I currently also collect books, things that keep my interest for longer than 30 seconds, jewellery and bootlegs.

I really like spending my free time reading, taking photographs, making plushies, surfing online or bootleg hunting. I'm passionate about lots of music (especially Radiohead), the Dark Tower series, comics &snooker (fanatic supporter of Ronnie O'Sullivan) and some other things that you will find out while reading ;)

And there it stops. I never know what to say in these things anyway... I'm highly impressed that I've gotten so far in the first place! o_O

Narrow-minded people (that's an obvious as well, isn't it?).
The less you know, the more you believe. - Bono

All God does is watch us and kill us when we get boring. We must never, ever be boring.
- Chuck Palahniuk

That's the difference between me and the rest of the world! Happiness isn't good enough for me! I demand euphoria! - Calvin (from Hobbes)

The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair. - Douglas Adams

The Dutch have mastered the deadpan reply. That's the one where they make you feel like an incredible asshole. No matter what you ask, you will be answered as if someone is reading to you from a book on Russian history. The more energy you put into a question or breathing, the more you will be halted by slow, measured speach, which often contains better grammar than you will ever possess. And if you make a joke, the Dutchman will retreat ten big steps backwards into the hallway of ultimate infinite cool. - Henry Rollins

You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world, and you believe you are living. Then you read a book... or you take a trip... and you discover that you are not living, that you are hibernating. The symptoms of hibernating are easily detectable: first, restlessness. The second symptom (when hibernating becomes dangerous and might generate into death): absence of pleasure. That is all. It appears like an innocuous illness. Monotony, boredom, death. Millions live like this (or die like this) without knowing it. They work in offices. They drive a car. They picnic with their families. They raise children. And then some shock treatment takes place, a person, a book, a song, and it awakens them and saves them from death. Some never awaken. - Anais Nin

If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned. - Tyler
