Shoe boxes, painting, and coffee
I just finished a uniquely Dutch excersise. Our corridor had a meeting to discuss a few issues and boy did we discuss. Starting at 1900 we talked for about half an hour about how to divide up simple tasks and how much time it takes to clean an oven compared with a refrigerator. Then, after designating a representative to investigate what other corridors are doing, we quarelled over whether shoes need to be put in our rooms, left on the floor, or put in boxes. This of course evolved into a discussion over whether or not we can keep coats in the corridor and if that means that the idea of shoe boxes on the wall is out of bounds. But of course this would be impossible because if the shoes are in a box and not on the floor one guy will loose, and I directly quote, "20 seconds every morning." Then we moved along to painting the kitchen, to buy coffee communally or individually, to buy a wii or a couch, etc. We finally wrapped up 2 hours later. I had big plans on getting things done tonight, namely: fixing my bike, reading, writing, looking for internships, and so on.
