Pinterest | Top Five Today | Motivational Quotes

Theme: Motivational Quotes

This weekend is one of the last study weekends of the year and the weather is really good, except for studying inside. The sun is shining and it is circa 28 degrees all day; predicted for all week! These quotes remind me of staying strong, going outside for a walk or the necessary groceries and further on study on…right now I am finishing my internship report.

Accompanied by my laptop, Chromebook – multiple screens that way -, iPhone (quick little researches), a bottle of water and cereals for breakfast, bread for lunch and a salad for dinner. And my desert: well it is e pre-desert, a lovely ice cream cone with an ice cream scoop in the afternoon. Every day a different flavor, but only for this weekend, only this time when I am gathering the scattered pieces of heavy lead to become one piece: the final internship report.

Life of an IT student | May 2018

Hello readers,

The month of May was quite a month of opposites. From the daily work at the internship and traveling a few hours a day, to several travel days, day trips and events. Lots of little different things came by this month.

For the internship my final few weeks of work started since December 2017. It feels good to have a little break in the work rhythm right now, but all the stuff I have learned at the company feels even better. It was an incredible journey and my first real external internship for more than half a year as a student Software Engineering. I am still writing my final report on it and will finish the whole subject completely at the end of the month of June.

The month of May also started with a visit to the famous ‘Keukenhof’ or also known as the ‘Tulips Garden’. I have photographed a lot on this beautiful sunny day and this year the ‘Tulipa Denmark’ is my favorite. It was a lovely sunny day in spring.

Halfway the month I visited the city ‘s’Hertogenbosch’ in the province of Noord-Brabant. Except for a stop at the train station I had never been there before. A lovely town for shopping, some drinks, food and cultural events. Every Sunday around noon is a concert in the local theatre and the cathedral of this city is wonderful! When I was walking around as a  ‘tourist-for-a-day’, people were enjoying the sunshine on the terrace and at every pub and restaurant where little festivities going on. It felt like I was walking to a little town with it’s own close but lovely community.

At the end of the month of May I had a few day off from work and went to the Belgian Ardennes. Stunning view of colors, depths, a river and the natural stalagmites and stalactites artwork inside the caves of a mountain. To a castle and hiking to the heights of the Ardennes from the sunshine in the valley to the top and a bit of thunder when climbing down again. It has been an amazing and exciting experience for a few days a nice mini holiday.

How has been your month of May?
