A Sneak Peak In My Life

What have I learned today in class? Well, I’ve learned that the Russians have a song about a guy who started a revolution. Though I couldn’t read the entire translation, I saw that there was also a young bride involved. Apparently he was a brave man and stuff. All people starting a revolution are brave. But okay.
It seems as if a Flemish guy thought this song was boring though. He kept the melody and changed the words. So now here in Belgium, we sing this song as well, but our lyrics are about a frog sitting on his mother’s knees… Great.
This song is also sung at what we call a ‘cantus’. This is an event that is typical for students. You spend the night singing this kind of songs and drinking as well. Sometimes, alternative versions of a song are allowed. Especially this frog song has a lot of different versions… Before you know it, the frog is sitting there in Gangnam style. Oh yes.
If you’re not going to a cantus, you can go to the Gangnam style TD (Thé Dansant? ThursDay?) in one of the cheap restaurants. Those restaurants are frequently visited by students, ’cause if you are a student, your food will cost at most € 5,10. And it’s quite decent food as well. Sometimes.
For people like me, who suck at any form of cooking, pasta included, this is a blessing. I mean, okay, pasta isn’t that hard, but still I eagerly accept the advice of my ‘house mates’ when cooking. (‘Cooking’) Luckily they are kind enough to help me out. This evening, we’re even going to party in one of the student cafes. Beer for € 1,20; Rochefort for € 1,80, be a blessed student… This evening, vodka red bull will be € 2. Which means I’ll have to watch out.
Not that I ever get drunk. But I could start saying and doing things I’ll regret afterwards. Secretly I hope to see someone again, someone who has been a part in my non-existing love life. I wonder what it will be like to see him again. I wonder what he’ll say. I wonder if I can turn back time a bit. Have I done something stupid? I don’t know.
All I know is that I should be studying instead of partying and writing posts.

That is what I’ll do now. Or else I will get some sleep… Sounds even better. How are you doing?

  1. I can you’re descending into debauchery already!

    If you haven’t done anything stupid, I’ll be disappointed.

  2. So do Russians get upset when they hear their tune and words about frogs?
    And I don’t think anyone needs to see a gangam style frog…

    Hope your fella turns up and is a nice guy!

    • I don’t know, I’ll give it a try when I go to Russia 🙂 !
      Yes, I hope so too. At the same time I’m a bit scared. But I bet he won’t be there. *sigh*

  3. A little bit of partying never hurt anyone. A healthy, balanced university life should include some fun!

    But you must be one of the most well-balanced young woman I’ve ever known. The other one is my daughter 😉

  4. Been to any wild parties yet filled with red cups? I hear that’s all college kids do.

    • Red cups? Guess I missed that one. Maybe college kids behave differently here.
      (Probably not. We all party too much and study too little.)

  5. You have to tell us all how that party was – I mean come on, super cheap vodka+redbulls 🙂

    I haven’t had a decent drink for ages; being a fashion blogger I have almost put alcohol to its grave as I decided to choose having good skin instead.

    Does that make me boring? NO. Okay? NO.

    • 😀
      Edita, I’m chocked! I thought my cybertwin was tougher!
      No, I’m joking.

      The sad news is that it wasn’t so cheap after all… Really depressing. It was quite fun, but one of the people who would be going out with us couldn’t come anymore, and the other one was getting ill, so we didn’t pass the ‘cosy phase’.

  6. Ahhh true student life! Enjoy it. It only comes around once.
