Wat voorafging...

Om jullie als lezer alvast een beetje bij te praten in hoe de voorbereiding verliep, volgt hier een stukje met in het kort de nieuwste ontwikkelingen, zodat dat bij het lezen van volgende berichten geen misverstanden of onduidelijkheden oplevert.

De studie


Om het maar even mild uit te drukken: plannen is niet mijn sterkste punt. Een uur vooruit lukt nog wel, een dag kost al moeite, een week gebeurt zelden, dus een paar maanden leek toch onmogelijk... Vandaar dus dat ik niet in september begin met m'n studie, maar in januari 2010. Dat geeft me wat voorbereidingstijd in de maanden daarvoor om te zorgen dat alle documenten in orde zijn en me te kunnen inschrijven op de University of West Florida.

De studie die ik ga doen heet IIT, wat een afkorting is voor Interdisciplinary Information Technology, met als specialisatie Human Computer Interaction. In Nederland heet die studie simpelweg informatiekunde. Als ik de vier jaar succesvol doorloop, ben ik als het goed is een Bachelor of Science. Of ik dan nog doorga voor m'n master? Wie weet...

In de drie maanden voor aanvang van de studie, zal ik mijn oude baantje bij Tommy Hilfiger weer oppakken. De eerste paar maanden zal dus veel lijken op wat ik in mijn trip vorig jaar heb gedaan. Echter, wel met één groot verschil: ik heb een auto!

Auto


Waar ik vorig jaar alles noodgedwongen op de fiets deed (ik vond het zonde om voor een paar maanden een auto te kopen), heb ik nu een iets 'Amerikaanser' vervoersmiddel: een auto. Begin augustus ben ik "even" heen en weer geweest naar Destin om daar vast een auto te kopen. Omdat ik nu de contacten al had, was dat betrekkelijk gemakkelijk. Een zeer behulpzame ex- én toekomstig collega van Tommy heeft me twee dagen lang door het proces van het kopen van een auto geloodst. Uiteindelijk had ik de avond voor ik weer naar huis vertrok (goh, wat typeert mij dat weer) beet: een Mazda Protegé LX 2.0 uit 2001 is nu voor de volle 100% van mij. Foto's heb ik helaas nog niet, die volgen zodra ik mezelf daar weer gevestigd heb. In ieder geval heb ik vast een auto, en dat brengt, zeker in Amerika, een behoorlijke vrijheid met zich mee. Ik weet nog niet goed of mijn eerste Road Trip als bestemming Las Vegas or Orlando heeft, maar ik heb nog even om dat te beslissen.

Dat is hoe het er nu, zo'n twee weken voor vertrek, voor staat. Zo langzamerhand kan ik ook gaan beginnen met de zoektocht naar een onderkomen. Ik weet al wel dat Rodney, van wie ik vorig jaar een kamer huurde, sowieso nog ergens plek heeft, dus dat zit ook wel snor. Het is nu tijd om de laatste documenten in orde te maken, de vertalingen daarvan te ontvangen en dan ben ik helemaal klaar om de plas over te steken.

Scot-tie... Vanavond ons afscheids etentje. Ik zal je missen, VRIEND. Deze vader is buitengewoon trots op je. Je gaat nu voor real life in een fantastisch land. Hoewel ik helemaal en voor 100% achter je keuzes sta, zal ik je missen. Ik kijk er nu al naar uit, om je straks in je nieuwe home country op te komen zoeken. Zonder enige twijfel ga je het allemaal plooien daar, maar just in case: het vangnet is altijd beschikbaar, dat weet je !

Enjoy, succes en tot over een paar maanden.
I love you, big guy.

Yeah Cheap Michael Kors Tote Bag but don't Moncler Sale you Adidas Originals Sale think you might Adidas Shoes Discount Marketplace go to your death-bed wishingyou'd spent more time with Vanessa Pak?


Van was part of my team. She went to nike sneakers a モンクレール レディース private girl's Pandora Style Beads school in the EastBay, but I knew she'd ditch Hogan Outlet to come out and run Yeezy Boost Sale Online the mission with Pandora Store me.


Darryl has had longchamp bags on sale a crush on her Kobe Shoes Nike literally for years — even before pubertyendowed her with many lavish gifts. Darryl had New Nike Shoes fallen in love with Nike Kyrie hermind. Sad, really.He looked Air max dam at me and shook his head. Then he canada goose jackets on sale nodded. adidas outlet I winked at himand set to work getting in touch with Air Max Kopen the rest of my team.


I wasn't always into Yeezy Men ARGing. I nike mercurial soccer cleats have a dark secret: Nike Air 90 I used to be aLARPer. LARPing is Live Air Jordan Retro Sale Action Role Playing, and Chaussure Nike Air Max Pas Cher it's just about what Negozi Pandora itsounds like: running Chaussure Nike Pas Cher around in costume, talking in a funny accent, ジョーダン スニーカー pre-tending Cheap Air Max to be a super-spy new jordan releases or a vampire or a medieval knight. It's likeCapture the Flag Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 For Sale in monster-drag, with a bit of nike air jordan pas cher Drama Club thrown TOMS OUTLET in,and Nike Pas Cher Femme the best games Nike Shoes Sale Store were the ones we Moncler Outlet Online played in Scout Camps nike sportschuhe out of townin Sonoma or down on the Peninsula. Those three-day epics could getpretty hairy, with louboutin heels all-day hikes, epic battles chaussure adidas pas cher with foam-and-bambooswords, casting spells by Toms Outlet Online throwing Canada goose dam beanbags and shouting "Fireball!"and so on. Adidas Neo Discount Sale Good fun, if a little goofy. Not nearly as geeky as talkingabout TOMS STORE what your elf Adidas Superstar Sale Online planned on doing Jordan Shoes Air as you sat around a table loadedwith Diet Coke cans and painted miniatures, and more physically activethan going into a mouse-coma Bottes Ugg Femme Pas Cher in Ugg Outlet Online Store front of a massively air force one pas cher multiplayer gameat home.


23The Cheap Air Max Trainers thing Hyperdunk 2014 that got Abercrombie and fitch store me into trouble were the mini-games in the hotels.


Whenever a science fiction convention came Air Max Femme to ugg factory outlet town, some Cheap Michael Kors LARPerwould convince them to let us run a Nike Store couple of six-hour christian louboutin outlet mini-games at thecon, piggybacking on their pandora outlet store rental Billige Nike Sko of the Nike joggesko space. Having a bunch of enthu-siastic kids running around in costume lent color to the event, and wegot to have a ball among people even more socially deviant than us.


The problem with hotels Mens Nike Air Max is that they have a lot of non-gamers in Nike Soccer Cleats Boots them,too — and not just sci-fi people. Normal Scarpe Nike Scontate people. From states that nike schuhe günstig beginand end with vowels. On holidays.


And sometimes those moncler jacket sale people misunderstand the Coach Outlet Store Online nature of a game.


Let's just Discount Ray Ban Sunglasses leave it at that, OK?This chapter is dedicated to New York City's Books of Wonder, the old-est and largest kids' Jordan Store bookstore in Manhattan. nike air They're Christian Louboutin Heels located just a fewblocks away from Official NHL Jerseys Tor Timberland Outlet Books' offices in the Flatiron Building and Discount TOMS everytime I drop in Nike Roshe Run to meet with the Tor people, I always sneak away Cheap Louboutin Heels to Booksof Wonder to peruse their stock of new, used TOMS For Sale and rare kids' books. I'm aheavy collector of rare editions Cheap Toms Shoes Outlet of Alice Cheap Toms Outlet Store in Wonderland, and Books ofWonder never fails to excite Moncler Jackets Discount Marketplace me Air Nike with Nike Factory Outlet some beautiful, limited-editionAlice. Doudoune Moncler Pas Cher They have Air Max 90 tons of Boty Nike Air events for kids and North Face Outlet one of the most Ugg Pas Cher En France inviting at-mospheres Nike Outlet Store I've ever experienced at Nike Roshe Run Sale a bookstore.


Books Pandora Store of Wonder: 18 West Cheap Nike Air Huarache 18th St, Uggs Pas Cher Soldes New York, NY 10011 USA Christian Louboutin Shoes Outlet +1 212989 Cheap Nike Huarache 3270They took me outside and around the Yeezy Shoes Discount Marketplace corner, to a waiting unmarkedpolice Nike Air Sneakers car. It wasn't like anyone in that neighborhood would have had ahard time figuring Stone Island Outlet out that it was Reebok Outlet Store a cop-car, Chaussure Air Max though. Only police drivebig Crown Victorias now that zapatos de futbol nike gas had hit seven bucks a gallon. What'smore, only cops could double-park cheap uggs in the middle of Van Ness huarache sneakers streetwithout Air Max Sneakers getting suivre un envoi towed by the schools of predatory Nike Shox Cheap tow-operators thatcircled Zapatillas Air Max endlessly, ready to enforce San Francisco's Nike Huarache Womens Cheap incomprehensibleparking regulations and collect Nike Online Store a bounty chaussure basket homme for kidnapping your car.


Booger blew toms shoes outlet his nose. I was sitting in the Yeezy Black back seat, and so was he. Hispartner Canada Goose Online Store was ADIDAS NMD SALE ON LINE sitting Nike Shoes Online in the front, typing with one Pandora Outlet finger on an Michael Kors Outlet ancient,ruggedized laptop that looked like Adidas Originals Stan Smith Fred Flintstone Nike Outlet had been its originalowner.


Booger looked closely at my ID Scarpe Air Max again. nike shoes "We just want to ask you a The official UGG fewroutine questions.""Can I see your badges?" I said. nike tn pas cher These guys were clearly cops, but itcouldn't hurt to Discount Air Max let Moncler Outlet Store them know I knew my nike sb stefan janoski rights.


Booger Canada Goose Outlet flashed his badge Adidas Soccer Cleats Cheap at me too fast for me to get a good look at it,but Zit in the Nike Free Run 5.0 Womens front nfl store seat gave me a long look pandora beads at his. I got their division91number and memorized the four-digit badge Cheap Nike Free Run number. It was easy: 1337is Air max levně also the way Official Toms Shoes Outlet hackers write "leet," or "elite."They were both being very Jordan Sneakers For Sale polite and new yeezy shoes neither of them was trying to in-timidate Nike Shox discount Sale me the way that retro jordans for cheap the DHS Michael Kors had done when I was nike jordan shoes in their custody.


"Am Uggs For Cheap I under arrest?""You've been Pandora Official Website momentarily detained pandora jewelry store so Cheap Retro Jordans For Sale that we can ensure your safetyand the Original Ugg Boots general public safety," Nike Polo Sale Booger said.


He Ugg boots Sale passed my driver's license up to Zit, who pecked it slowly into Descuentos Nike hiscomputer. I saw him make a typo and Ugg Pas Cher Femme almost corrected him, but figuredit was better to just keep UGGS Outlet my mouth shut.


"Is there Jordan Shoes For Cheap anything you want womens nike air max to tell me, Marcus? Do they call youMarc?""Marcus is fine," I said. new pandora charms Booger looked like he might adidas store be a Nike Air Pas Cher nice guy. Ex-cept for Coach Bags On Sale the part about kidnapping Nike Air Huarache For Sale me Pandora Store Sale into his Michael Kors Handbags Discount car, Nike Air Damen of Nike Air Women course.


"Marcus. Anything you cheap nike air max want to tell Nike Shoes Discount Marketplace me?""Like what? Am I under arrest?""You're botas de futbol not under Nike Air Max Cheap arrest right now," Booger said. Louboutin Wedding Shoes "Would you like tobe?""No," cheap uggs for women I said.


"Good. Toms Factory Outlet We've been watching you Hugo Boss Sale since you left the BART. Cheap True Religion Jeans Your FastPass says Nike Air Max Goedkoop that scarpe nike you've been riding to Vans Black Sneakers a lot Discount Christian Louboutin Shoes of strange places at a lot offunny hours."I felt something Ray Ban Sunglasses Online let ugg clearance go inside my chest. This wasn't about the Xnet atall, then, not really. They'd been watching my subway use and wanted toknow why it had Doudoune Moncler Femme Pas Cher been so vans shoe store freaky lately. How totally stupid.


"So you guys follow everyone who comes out of Doudoune Moncler Site Officiel the BART station witha funny ride-history? You must Air Max Pas Cher be busy.""Not everyone, Marcus. We get TOMS SHOES OUTLET an alert when anyone ugg store with an UGG BOOTS FOR WOMEN uncom-mon ride profile Boost Yeezy Sale On Line comes out Zapatillas Nike Air Max Baratas and that helps Adidas NMD For Sale us assess whether we Cheap Real Jordans want toinvestigate. Adidas Yeezy Cheap In your case, we Nike Air Jordan 11 came along Michael Kors Clearance because we wanted günstige nike schuhe to knowwhy prada outlet a smart-looking newest lebron shoes kid like converse store you had such a funny ride profile?"Now that I knew I wasn't about to go to jail, I was getting pissed.


These Cheap Michael Kors Handbags guys Nike Tn Requin Pas Cher had no business spying on me — Christ, the BART had nobusiness canada goose jacket outlet helping them to Boutique Ugg spy on me. Where the hell did my subway passget off zapatillas nike baratas on finking me out Adidas Originals Superstar for having a Canada Goose Womens Coats "nonstandard ride reebok running shoes pattern?""I think I'd like to be arrested Nike Air Shoes now," coach factory outlet online I said.


92Booger New Air Max 2017 sat Canada Goose Outlet back and Adidas Superstar raised asics sko his eyebrow Soccer Boots Outlet nike at me.
