‘Hate’ is a strong word and I do not use it very often. Regardless of my stance, I have to make use of it now, for I hate saying ‘Good bye!’

Melodramatic

As a matter of fact, I try to avoid saying it to people I like a lot, since I am convinced that you see each other at least twice in life if you sense a special bond. Without wanting to sound too corny or melodramatic, I may convey the fact that such a bond exists between some of the people I met in the last six months during my internship. And although it is a silly and almost pathetic thing to admit, but I am certain that I will miss each and every one of them! (more…)

Hm... lekker!

 

“No way!” “Yes, of course!” “Nooo, I am sure that not!” “Hey guys! What’s up? Why the screaming, San?” Ellen looked first to Joost, then to Alex who shook his head and then turned to me. “Ts. Joost here, says that the song ‘Eins, Zwei, Polizei’ continues with ‘Drei, Vier, Bregadier’. That is non-sense.” “Ok, what is it then, Miss Pukler?” “Well, it is  ‘Drei, Vier, Grenadier’, of course!! Ts. I mean really, Joost, who is the German here?” “Nah, ill go for bregadier!” “Oh yeah?! I bet you that it is GRENADIER!” My eyes started to get that wild slightly insane sparkle that they always get when I am faced with a thrilling challenge. (more…)

Box Fox!! Yes you can, San!!

“Goooood morning, Saaaan! So, where exactly are you sitting at?” “Heeey, good morning Foxy, my compartment is directly in front of the kiosk this time!” All of a sudden, I heard a heart-warming giggle behind me and Foxy came to sit in the seat next to mine, followed by many partly amused, partly sleepy looks from the other train passengers. “That was easy this morning. The guy behind you pointed you out, haha!” “Haha, box Fox!!” “Yes, you can, San!” And again, we were unintentionally in the center of attention. Yes, that was definitely an indication of Foxy and my communication style.  (more…)

Is it 10 yet, Rick G.?

I admit it. I am a bit of a hypocrite, because although I love adventure, I also strongly appreciate sturdy routines. I find it a nice combination: Although you find contentedness in your structured and controlled comfort zone you get the exciting opportunity and exposure to the thrill if you want it. In a way it is like having the pie and eating it as well. In this regard, one of the company’s routines is “Birthday-Cake-At-Ten”. Although it is a routine, I am highly thrilled about it. It starts in the morning when I open my outlook and secretly hope for a certain standard message to pop up with its distinctive sound. (more…)

Nice five-star hotel up north...

Finally! Everybody, especially all interns had waited for this special event to come for months. It was time for the Procurement Meeting! The company had organized two days with the entire European procurement department in a little city up north in a lovely five-star hotel and we all were impressed when we finally arrived. After we freshened up (some of us took the advantage to do so in the luxurious swimming pool) we all met for a nice ‘borrel’ before the company dinner. Amusingly, the latter was accompanied by Karaoke, which was hosted by our big boss Rick himself. (more…)
