Expectations Vs Reality

[Dutch Lock Down Day Four Hundred Ninety Five]

OMG this blog is a PERFECT DEMO of expectations versus reality.

I expected to write a lovely little blog post.

I am literally writing a few lines.

That’s it.

That’s the whole post.

Moving Back to the States: The Detroit House

[Dutch Lock Down Day Four Hundred Eighty One]

Today the money theoretically hits our Dutch account and needs to be sent immediately over to our American account after I visit the local office to raise our daily limit to ludicrous levels for One! Day! Only!

Hold it for a count of five.

Don’t Panic

[Dutch Lock Down Day Four Hundred Seventy Two]

I was totally NOT going to do another music post today cause Don’t Panic can refer to the Hitchhiker’s Guide catchphrase but it can also refer to Coldplay’s song and apparently a few other things.


But then I came across Coldplay’s video for said song and started crying cause let me explain.

No, too long.

Let me sum up.

But first the news:

And we live in a beautiful world
Yeah we do, yeah we do
We live in a beautiful world
