Inside It All Feels The Same  

I'm very eloquent today. 

Actually, I just update this thing when I have to study for an exam it seems. Amsterdam in the Golden Age: Art History. Not bad. I like art. (I like art, yes, eloquent.) I'm just not a big fan of 17th century art - though, looking closely at Rembrandt's Jewish Bride, studying his "daubing" and the extreme layers of paint was pretty interesting.
Just, reading and taking notes gets boring after a while.

Post-war art (that's WWII) is so much more interesting to me.

I feel like I need to turn my tumblr into some sort of art blog, just for me to remember the works I like, when it comes to things like that my memory isn't the best.

I have the finale of Homeland streamed and ready, but I can't make myself push play, the promo last week made me scared. Claire Danes and Damian Lewis both deserve all the awards they can get for this, the emotions that show has made me go through. Such a roller-coaster.
Other than Homeland this was quite a disappointing tv-season, wasn't it? 
I mean, when my favourite new show is a Swedish one (ok, Swedish/Danish collab, the Danes do know how to make quality tv) you know something's up. (And that's Bron [The Bridge], if it airs where you are, check it out!)

Revenge is actually very entertaining (I'm a cliché and Nolan is my favourite) and I'm starting to love Happy Endings more than Community, but that's pretty much it. I skipped some episodes in the middle of 2 Broke Girls (all the rape jokes, were we supposed to find those funny?) heard that it had gotten better and started watching again. It's ok, I guess, it's my horribly embarrassing crush on Kat Dennings that keeps me watching. New Girl is awful but only 20 min/week so I watch that as well.
I never did continue watching Prime Suspect and now I think it's cancelled? If not confirmed it at least seems to head that way. Quit Pan Am as well, the sisters were too boring for me to keep watching just for the French stewardess and Christina Ricci.
Supernatural is awful but what else is new?

I called Misfits a year ago, check the tag. Liked Rudy a lot as a replacement for Nathan, other than that the third season was pretty much a waste of time.

Going back to Sweden for Christmas on the 22nd, then coming back to Amsterdam again on the 29th. Spending New Years here and staying for a week or two in January, then I'm back home again, for good. Will miss this city so much, I've had a constant ache in my stomach for the last week and only realised it's because I'm leaving soon a few days ago.
I don't even want to think about it.
