I really like taking pictures, especially concert photography and portraits.
Back from our graduation vacation in Amsterdam - a city that will definitely see me again! It was an amazing week incl. friends, friendly people, good food, nice weather, museums, pancakes with bacon plus syrup, meeting Mylene, train rides, a trip to Rotterdam, Albert Heijn, beer, grachten, trams, uitchecken, bikes, bikes, bikes & a lot of other things… :)
Because it’s so much more than just coffeeshops - the Netherlands were the first country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage for example.
Van Gogh, Gouda - Gulia over and out. ɣ
Just did a little coding and updated my tumblr page, you can now like and reblog posts directly from my blog! :)
Remember the load of MSN emoticons that made your conversations either funnier or more annoying? We all know Windows Live Messenger is gone by now, but the Facebook chat on mobile phones is soon going to feature something called stickers. I wouldn’t be surprised if you could add your own ones as well. ;)
If you watch The Vampire Diaries, you sure know Rebekah, one of the originals. Well, I always kinda liked her in the series even though she’s playing a shady role, but she reminded me of someone…
Just today I came across H2O: Just Add Water on TV again and noticed: Mermaid Emma looks just like Rebekah! To get a confirmation I looked it up and indeed both roles are played by Claire Holt.
While watching the episode I told my sister what I found out and she mentioned that mermaid Cleo is Hayley from The Vampire Diaries and in fact both roles are played by Phoebe Tonkin.
Isn’t it quite interesting and funny that both are Australian actresses who played mermaids on the teenager fantasy series H2O: Just Add Water and now make appearances in The Vampire Diaries? ;)

This semester has already come to an end, the marks are fixed. Now there’s another week of school and then I have semester holidays for another week. Of course I’m always happy about having holidays.
But as this is my final year in this school, the second semester is going to be even shorter and more intense. Loads of tests and exams ahead. Then the big final exams - to which we refer as the Matura - that consist of taking written exams in the three main subjects and oral exams in another three subjects. Note: Each written exam is five to six hours long.
My bad habit of last-minute studying that has become standard won’t get me anywhere, I guess. In order to pass these exams, get my diploma and start doing what I want to do:
I need a plan.
End of July last year Microsoft introduced Hotmail’s upgrade and soon replacement called Outlook.com which comes in their new Windows 8 user interface style named Metro. For now, if you’re using Hotmail, you can decide whether or not to switch.
Now if you receive and open an e-mail from someone who is registered on Facebook or Twitter with the e-mail address they sent it from, it will appear on the right just like in the red box in this example:
Regardless of whether or not that person is in your contacts on Outlook.com, Facebook or amongst your Twitter followers, no matter what, if the person that send you the e-mail is is registered on Facebook or Twitter with this e-mail adress, Outlook.com will show that on the side and you can even click it and go to their profile.
Then there’s this page under “Inbox > Options > Content from third-party networks” where you can see the social networks Outlook.com could find that are connected to your e-mail address:
The thing is you can’t really stop Outlook.com from showing a link to your Facebook or Twitter profile when sending e-mails and the recipient opens it with Outlook.com other than disabling the function “let others find me by e-mail” in your privacy settings on your Facebook and Twitter account. If you let others find you on Facebook or Twitter by your e-mail address, that’s already what’s “public information” in their eyes…
What do you think about it?
Since a couple of days, the New MySpace is officially out.
I guess it’s hard to not be better than the old new MySpace and I think I’m quite liking it so far, but it’s seems a bit confusing at first...
Remember when they changed MySpace from the all-customizable original site to what now is the old, or as the people at MySpace call it, the Classic MySpace? Back then MySpace was THE music network and it was the network that allowed you to connect with people all over the world. It was MySpace where I discovered a few musicians that I’m still listening to now.
However, with the rise of Facebook MySpace was clearly struggling and in 2010 they decided to completely redesign the whole page. Not in a very good way in my opinion. The radical changes in combination with the new social network Facebook sure were a reason why more and more people stopped using it and so did I.
Now there’s the New MySpace, I’d say we should at least give it a chance.
I’m wondering though why they still insist on keeping the old MySpace…
What do you think?
