QUEENS DAY, HANGOVER DAY (not me actually, just everyone in holland, generally), AND PING PONG DAY.
pippi on queensday.
appeltart for breakfast, homemade by dutch tweens.
this city is crazy looking. so good looking always.
non-drunk punks. (vitamin x is a straightedge band.)
the city was trashed.
hung over and making cupcakes. mandy (actual dutch friend), chelsea, laura.
you couldn't sell those tiny ass cupcakes to americans if you wanted to. everything is smaller in europe, especially the cupcakes. the frosting was called 'princess frosting', though and tasted like gummi bears.
at the pepper (de peper) where i volunteer, also my favorite place in amsterdam.
another non-school friend, elena , who i helped train to work at the pepper.
sometimes (always) we have dance parties to hip-hop. everyone else who lives in the building probably hates us.
buncha friends singing 'no scrubs'.
played ping pong today. gloria and danielle.
ping pong is hard.
victoria and laura. a lil more low key.
me and victoria. ping pong slam.
