Since I've been exceptionally lazy and exceptionally tired for the past week, I come up with a fresh journal only now.
For those who read my slightly hysterical journal about the EEYP over a month ago, I'll start with that
I came back home from Rotterdam about two weeks ago, late on Sunday evening, and I was supposed to go right back to school the next day. But in the end I spent the whole day completely passed out in my bed, restoring the energy I had lost the week before
Because seriously, the week in Netherlands was intense. We usually spent our whole day working, from like nine in the morning or so, until nine in the evening, sometimes even later, writing resolutions about a certain topic - my comittee's was European defence and foreign affairs. It would make an intersting topic for a discussion over a cup of coffee or something, but it lost all of its interestingness completely, when we had to keep on talking about it for like four days, trying to come up with ideas we could present and defend at the General Assembly at the end of the week. So, in the end, coming up with the general idea on the first day of working together was fun, but later, when it became all about financing and managing and all this specific and, honestly, quite boring stuff, I was at loss of ideas to add. Which greatly frustrated my comittee's chairs. I did feel bad because of it, but one can't help but kind of lose their motivation, when some of their workmates have the ability to whip up an almost perfect resolution all by themselves in one day if they really wanted to. So, all in all, I felt a bit useless
And then, at the General Assembly, when it was our time to present our resolution, I was nervous like never before. But I did manage to come up to the microphone and answer one of the questions. Even though I said like three sentences
So, if I were to wrap the week up and say how I liked it, I would definitely say that I enjoyed the evenings the most - we always went to the lounge, had a couple of drinks at the bar with all the other delegates, and then lead drunken conversations with each other in at least five different languages
That was definitely the best part. Oh, and then our trip to Amsterdam, after the EEYP ended.
Alright. Now that I described how well I had fared on my great journey abroad, and how happy I am to be back, I am going to inform you about another great journey abroad I am about to make
I am leaving for The Bahamas next week, together with my grandma. I've never been to such an exotic place before, so I am really, really excited to know what is it going to be like. I know from pictures that it looks heavenly, and I am of course taking my camera, and especially my new ultrawide lens with me (but the question still remains whether I will be able to take decent scenery shots
Well, we'll see.
So, for now, see ya, guys!
