Moving to The Netherlands and Building Ikea Stuff

avatar

IMG_20220711_162129.jpg

Here I am again! It's been a busy month, mainly because I just moved from one country to another, that being from Suriname to Netherlands. Don't worry, I made this move because of a new job, and not because I was escaping from @tanjakolader. And with moving come some practical things like setting up a new living space. Well, finding a living space can also be a challenge here, but I somehow got really lucky. That being said, I received a whole bunch of stuff from Ikea and this is what they looked like.

Yes, you've guessed it. All those boxes are my new furniture. Which you have to put together yourself. Time to use my hands, and brain.

Luckily these things come with clear instructions. Usually. So it should be a piece of cake.

So far so good. Identify all the pieces and put the connecting parts in their place.

Halfway through and I got a visit from one of my new neighbors who I knew in Suriname. This was very helpful for flipping things over and picking up stuff that is better picked up with 2 people.

And before we knew it we were done with this one and I had a new desk for work.
One down, a lot more to go.

And to finish the post, here's Jamaican in New York, which seems very appropriate for my current situation.

Tanja should be here pretty soon. Finishing up her studies first.

Lol, I'm not in Amsterdam (close though), so I'm safe from the red lights. xD

Nice looking desk. Contrats on the new work & life bro.

Hahaha I hope so and besides with technology nowadays we can speak/see each other daily, whilst family of ours had to have been months or even years apart. Always trying to be positive 😅.

All the best at your new location. I’ve been off hive for a while. I’m catching up. Big move!
Well, absence makes the heart grow fonder, right @tanjakolader. 😃

Definitely makes the heart grow fonder, but also refreshing to have a living space of my own for the first time ever. It's getting boring after two months though.

Hahaha I'm comforting myself with the knowledge that we can speak/see each other daily with the technology nowadays.
