So, first of many days away from home.
I got to wake up late, which was wonderful. Spent a few hours after cleaning up my room, packing for the week, and just relaxing. Got a bus to Turnhout around 4, bought some phone credit (last time!), and bought Jenna's going away present. Which was an American flag scarf - she absolutely hates it when people wear them, or when people mistake her for an American, so it was only appropriate :P
Walked around for a while, got some food, and then got the bus to Mol. I was just going to hang out in the station, but there was this creepy drunk guy there (he wasn't dissuaded by me speaking Spanish - which means saying the few phrases I know and hoping he doesn't speak Spanish - and pretending to not understand English or Dutch) so I left and went to a pub to hang out. Jenna's friend was going to meet me there, but he didn't show, so I just chilled by myself until she came (she was in Brugge).
Hung out there for a bit, gave her the gift (she was pissed but said she loves me so it's okay :P), and then went to meet her friend at a pool bar in a different part of town. Hung out there for a while - I just watched because I know I suck at pool - and then walked back to her house.
Then, the packing began. Not counting all of the clothes that are getting washed right now, I managed to fit all the rest of the clothes + chocolates + gifts + books + shoes + makeup and bathroom stuff in her 2 suitcases and a backpack, and she fit all the papers and other things in her laptop bag/carry-on. There's still about a collective 8 kilos she can still fit in the two suitcases, so she'll be more than fine for the weight limit (I hope - I don't know how much she has in the wash). I'm such a master packer~
Anyway, probably going to eat or just chill out a bit more, and then go to sleep. Slaapwel everyone!
And to whoever asked what a Bicky is (I assume you're an American), it's a fantastic burger. It's got a lot of different toppings that made me hate it the first time, but now I absolutely love it. It's hard to explain - it's not really hamburger meat, and I don't even know what's in some of the sauces. But it's delicious and I eat it entirely too much.
