This week is project week at our school, no regular lessons, just workshops, bks (you have 20 minutes to teach a band 2 songs, at the end of the day a commission picks 1 of the 2 and you have to perform that one on stage) (I chose Florence & the machine - Kiss with a Fist, and Regina Spektor - Folding Chair) (they eventually picked folding chair and except for 1 mess up it went well I guess! I actually had people coming up to me saying they liked it! That's so, ooo warm fuzzy feeling on the inside ;-)) (no but really), and you had to pick a project. Options were Studio -record a song in the studio, promotion -learn about wordpress/social media/etc, and songwriting -write a song in a group of about 4 people, then perform it on thursday.
I chose songwriting, and though, while at first it was a bit .. funny because I didn't know any of the guys I was in the project with, I knew the other girl though, she's my homie Lisa and it's really nice to work with her like this!
But, we have a song! And I really like it! We wrote it all together, everybody had something to say and I think it went really fair and all. The theme was (kill me now) Big Dreams! wohhhh BIG DREAMS! How poetic.
So, we made a song about a man, Andrew, he's a rich rich business man, but actually all he ever dreamt of was to be an average man. Ah well, sounds better when we sing it I guess.
So anybody in Enschede today, come and watch us in Jansen en Jansen at 20:00, all the groups (about 5 or 6?) will perform their songs! I'm so excited about all the other stuff!
But mmkey, so, tuesday was writing day, we had a room reserved for the whole day (10 till 5) and at about 12 o'clock we went to eat something downstairs in the cafeteria.
After a while I realized nobody locked the room, but at school it's such a nice, homey environment, everybody's seen everybody, and most of the people even know each other, so I thought, well, we'll be back in 10 minutes or so..
So, when we went back, we started working, when after about 15 minutes I wanted to look something up on my trustworthy ol' white macbook.
I couldn't find it anywhere.
So my first thought was, somebody saw it and thought, well the room isn't locked, I know it's Anne-Fleurs I'll keep it safe for her, look her up in school and give it. Or maybe, somebody pulled a (helluva) joke, or borrowed it for a sec. Then my fellow songwriters and I started asking (because the whole 2nd floor was busy writing songs and all the rooms are next to eachother), have you seen a laptop, in a pink case? Somebody said he noticed a pink case in the mans bathroom (one on the right of the building where we normally don't go to a lot) so immediately we went there, but it was gone.. I went to the other bathroom on the same floor, where the cleaninglady's cart was out side.. with a pink laptop case. Se said she'd found it in the bathroom where we'd just looked.
And I guess that's when I started crying because, well, if you find your case thrown down in the mens toilet... it's pretty certain it's stolen.
Well after that I went talking to lots of people, janitors, the lady by the reception, the people at the other reception.. they were all so sweet, helping me in every way they could.
I spent 2 hours sitting at the entrance reception watching footage of the camera pointed at the entrance (but no body with a white laptop carried under his arm ;-)), I changed all my passwords and eventually I got a laptop from school (a very oldskool black macbook to borrow until I have a new one. Sweeeeeties they are!! Daaamn) and reported to the police online..
The upstairs reception even sent out a mail with the subject "stole a laptop? Return it anonymously!" but I guess that didn't work since I haven't got it back.
Damn, I made some back ups, but that was a while ago.. so all my new stuff is gone, and really a lot of my music, photo's (luckily I can get a lot of them back by stealing them of my own blog again ;)) but I'd also lost the living room reservations.. luckily I knew most of it, and the things I'd forgot where on facebook or in my gmail. Yay.
Pfff I just really can't believe someone would do something like this.. especially to a fellow student!!! I mean, lots of people have macbooks at school, and literally EVERYBODY know how fucking expensive they are and how poor of a student we all are, especially being musicians and all ( 8-) nerdy puppet). So damn.. fucking wanking motherfucking idiot.
Weird right! Not to have an image on top of the blog!! ... well I could go find one on the internet of course, but it also feels good, as a sort of.. silent protest. Take THAT you motherfucker!!! That's what you GET of stealing my goddamn laptop! yeah!
Haha mmkey. Well, at least I had to laugh about that.
Sooo now it's almost time to take money of my savingsaccount and buy me a new one. I've been wanting to buy a macbook pro for a while now.. but I never wanted to get one this fast.
Well, ah well. I'd rather lose my laptop than one of my family members. Perspective Anne-Fleur. Perspective.
