The Age of Pandora days are getting a bit blurry, as we reached a chapter that took several days to complete, so from now on I'll refer to the chapter instead of the amount of days. So much for a "60 Day Challenge"... *huffs*
Behind the cut are all the work-outs I did in the past week. I also included a Jeff/Jensen treat at the end, because why not.

CHAPTERS 38-43 (spoilers for exercises and story) )

I'm gonna pack for my trip to London now. Hope to be able to do the work-outs on the ferry and in my hotel, but I'll also be doing a lot of walking through town, so I'll get enough exercise in between theatre visits and soaking in bubble baths :-p

Will tell y'all all about it when I get back! *waves*

beelikej: (Voted)
Okay, so: elections! This is a long text post, but with all that's going on in the world, I thought it would be good to write down how we do elections in the Netherlands.

Tomorrow I'm going to vote for a party that I want to be represented by in parliament. In the Netherlands we can choose between 24 (TWENTY FOUR!!) political parties, from conservatives (which we call liberals) to democrats (who call them selves liberals) to socialists (who are apparently called liberals in the USA) and many many in between (we have an animal party, a pirate party, a party for people who don't want to vote (sarcasm much), a senior citizen party, and so on and so on, 28 in total over all, but some parties are not on local lists)

There are 150 seats in parliament (Tweede Kamer, or the House of Representatives).
The party who gets the most votes will get the first chance to form a government and to do this they will work with as many parties as needed to get a majority in the House.
Currently we have a government of VVD (conservatives) plus PVDA (socialists), so all is not lost if the right wins ;-) Compromise is what our political system is all about.
The leader of the biggest party will become Prime Minister, the different minister posts will be divided over each party in the cabinet. (So for instance right now, we have a social minister for education and a conservative for housing, a social minister for finance, a conservative for defense, etc.)

According to the polls the conservative VVD will still be the biggest, but there is a extreme right wing politician who became very popular in the past year, who's right behind them. Fortunately the Green Left also has a lot of supporters and they too still have a good chance to gain a lot of seats.
Turn out for the most recent national elections was 75%, they're expecting a lot more people to vote this time, because it's such a close race. (there are 13 milion people with the right to vote)
In the Netherlands you are registered at birth and after you turn eighteen you will automatically get an invitation to vote for every election.
You also receive an example ballot with all the candidates and instructions, so you can study it at home. At the voting station there will be a huge poster with the ballot, so you have another chance to look at the names. We vote with a red pencil, filling the circle in front of the name of your candidate.

Here's my example ballot and invitation )

I don't think it's a secret I will vote for the Green Left (litteral translation of the party's name:), the only choice I still have left to make is which candidate I'll give my preference to. I would usually vote for the first woman on the list (there are three parties with a woman in the top spot, for most of the major parties the number 2 is a woman, except for the Christian Right (SGP) who don't allow women on their list, well they do now, since they had to go to court over that and lost, but they don't have any eligible women on their list anyway).

BUT! Choosing number 2 will not result in more women in parliament, because candidates will get a seat based on their place on the list and the amount of votes the party gets. So number two on the list will definitely get in. This year there was a campaign explaining that in order to get more women in parliament, we should vote for a woman who is near the cut-off point of seats for their party and might not get in, unless she'd get preference votes. So I'm gonna try and find out who that would be for my party, based on the dreaded polls...

Why do I vote for a woman? Simple math, the group of candidates has 34% women and 66% men; I want our parliament to be representative of our population, so to restore balance, my preference vote goes to a woman.

Polling stations are open from 07:30 until 21:00, I'll go and vote after work, on my way home. For my own sanity I will try not to spend the evening watching the news;) Mom's coming over for dinner and I hope we will distract each other with chatting and DVDs...

It will be a stressful evening though.

(FYI: our conservatives are really not that conservative; issues like women's rights, gay marriage and healthcare for all are not up for debate to the point of fearing for our life. But the rise of the right is a cause for worry, especially for non white people. Let's hope enough lefties turn up to vote and even out the hate with sympathy at least...)

I'm very distracted at the moment by our national elections: we get to vote for members of our parliament on Wednesday. I plan to do a post about it tomorrow, just so you know;)

Hey, remember that design project I got at work two weeks ago? The bosslady showed the result to upper management and they were so enthused they now want a poster of their own and they want it FAST. So that's the rest of my week at work planned...

Got a little behind on work-out updates due to fandom fun, so before I catch y'all up on the exercises, here are links to my recently posted artwork!

Papier-mâché and papercut art for the Reverse_Bang

Paperporn for the SMPC!
an NC-17 scene between (human) Jeff/Jensen/Jared as a sexy follow up to the above shifter story.
(Also includes a making of *grins*)

Last but not least: I opened another round of the MatchMakerChallenge in the [livejournal.com profile] quicky_bang artcommunity in which I hand out short surprise fics to art for. Come over if you want to play: pick a date in March and choose to art with a 1, 2 or 3 week deadline...

Right, onwards to the Age of Pandora:

Spent Wednesday evening at my mom's after doing Ch. 26 of Age of Pandora at home first;).
On Thursday I suddenly got a deadline at work for that design project they'd asked me to do, which was little stressful, yet fun in the end and I got enthused praise from one of the top bosses, so yay! Had planned to do Ch. 27 immediately when I got home, but got a call from brotherdearest and we chatted for quite some time *grins* It was hard to get started after sitting down for so long, but I did the whole thing (bloody hell, 10 sets?!).
This afternoon I had a massage appointment right after work, which left me all sleepy and snuggly for the rest of the afternoon. Since Ch. 28 was pretty chill, I was able to do it though.

Chapter 26-28 (spoilers for exercises and story) )

I signed up for the [livejournal.com profile] smpc for March 5, so I'll be arting tomorrow! After that, I plan to pick a date in the [livejournal.com profile] quicky_bang MatchMaker Challenge...
(IF THERE ARE ANY ARTISTS OUT THERE WHO WANT TO JOIN IN, COME OVER!)

Will try to catch up on RB artwork and start replying to comments.
Gosh, where did this week go?

J.
beelikej: (Quicky Dean)
banner age of pandora.png

I totally did the thing yesterday, but had so many social media to catch up with, that I was too exhausted to post about it. (I had to fill the queue for the NicknGreg Tumblr and was almost a week behind with my Daily Dutch Blog, which is now up to date again - link in sidebar;)

I also had to postpone commenting on new art in the [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang until tonight and still haven't had time to respond to comments on my own RB artwork and other post from last week. I'll get to that as soon as possible (which is probably Thursday, because tomorrow night I'll be having dinner at my mom's and we usually end up hanging in front of the TV until late;)

Chapter 24+25 (spoilers for exercises) )

I really miss ABS work-outs in this challenge, so I've decided to collect a couple of Darebee Core sessions to add to the Age of Pandora sets in the weekends. If you want my selection of work-outs for that, let me know and I'll share a pdf:)

Last but not least: a promo for my [livejournal.com profile] quicky_bang community for SPN/RPF artists: there is a new MatchMaker Challenge! You can sign up with any start date in March and get a surprise short fic to art for in 1, 2 or 3 weeks. Come on over and pick a blind date, a speed date or a double date!

Last weekend I traveled to Amsterdam for two days of fangirling with [livejournal.com profile] sillie82 and [livejournal.com profile] bflyw (who flew in from Norway with her daughter A.). On Sunday evening I took the train to Schiphol airport to pick up B. & A. and accompany them to their hotel. I spent the night at my brother's.
On Monday S. joined us and we hung out in the hotelroom to chat and watch Supernatural before strolling through town until it was time for the Station Breaks concert (Check out [livejournal.com profile] bflyw's glorious photos!).
On Tuesday we watched some more Supernatural together and explored Amsterdam a bit more. I had a great time:) Here are some photos of our walks...

Day 1: Rembrandt and Concert )

Day 2: Chocolate and Canals )

Speaking of fangirl meet ups: I'll be in London at the end of March. If you're in the neighborhood for tea, let me know!

Pfff, what a week. I had planned to keep up with my work-outs while I was in Amsterdam on Monday and Tuesday, but the floor of my brother's third floor apartment started creaking as soon as I showed him how to do a half jack and I'm pretty sure I felt the floorboards moving along too, so I figured it was safer to not do any more jumping. I did walk all over town with [livejournal.com profile] sillie82 and [livejournal.com profile] bflyw though: according to their trackers 16000 and 9000 something steps respectively, so I'd say I did get enough exercise. (I'll post about our fangirl get-together more extensively later;)

Wednesday and Thursday were crazy days at work, as I was still working on that extra design assignment and I found my stresslevels went up like woah; I'm glad I managed to have fun with it eventually.
At home I caught up with Age of Pandora. Even though I first had wanted to skip the Chapters I missed, I decided to play properly after all and did Chapter 20 and 21.

On Fridays I only work mornings and I spent my whole afternoon plus evening coding my Reverse Bang ARTPOST! I was pretty stiff from sitting down for hours and my body was acting up hormonally on top of that, so I gave myself permission to skip the work-out.

I got back to it today with Chapter 22. Behind the cut a review and possible spoilers for the story...

Chapter 20+21+22 )

I'm gonna sort out some photos of my time in Amsterdam; I only made a few of The Station Breaks concert and they are blurry, but I WAS THERE and had a great time plus I know [livejournal.com profile] sillie82 and [livejournal.com profile] bflyw made photos and vids, so I don't mind;) What have you been up to?

beelikej: (ReverseBang!)
Years ago I had a pink deerhead standing on the shelf above my toilet. One day it broke (I'm not naming names) and ever since I've been looking for a replacement. I couldn't find one anywhere, so finally I figured I could try and make one myself... and that sparkled the prompt I created last November for this year's [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang. Jensen is a deer, I turned Jared into a pink unicorn and of course JDM is a bear. *grins* I don't know, okay, I just imagined lots of furry snuggling;)

My prompt was turned into a fluffy fic, woohoo! Find out below if my dreams came true. I was inspired by the story to make additional art and yes, I created papier-mâché animal heads (no pink deer though;). May I present:

Now I'm gonna get dressed and finish packing for my three days of fangirling in Amsterdam. I will meet up with [livejournal.com profile] bflyw and her daughter and [livejournal.com profile] sillie82. Tonight I will pick up BflyW and A. from the airport and escort them to their hotel. I will sleep over at my brother's and tomorrow we'll all meet up to explore Amsterdam. At night we're going to a concert of the Stationbreaks (with Rob Benedict and Jason Manns!) and on Tuesday we'll do more touristy things (and possibly watch some Supernatural *grins*) \o/

An exciting day today. I spent the whole day arting, messing with paint and paper in my pajamas, woohoo! Colour teasers in my Instagram: White / Pink / Brown (All will be revealed next week!)

Unfortunately later in the afternoon the day took a shit turn, when I heard a disturbance at the neighbour's apartment. Cut for domestic violence - everyone is okay now )

ANYWAY... this put me in a GREAT mood for today's work-out session which was 10 minutes of non-stop fighting moves. I decided to not do the random exercises in Chapter 18 of Age of Pandora, but did a boxing session with my Moov-activity tracker...

Short workday because I had an appointment for a lung-function-test since I can't seem to get rid of my cough in between those extreme colds I've been having. I don't think this was the right test for that, but I have one of those doctors that prefers to check off a list instead of actually dealing with the problem straight away. *sighs* As I expected I don't have astma. Duh. No idea what's next on the list, we'll see.

Ehm, also: before the test I had to get on a scale and as I didn't have a clue about my weight I didn't know what to expect, but I've been feeling really great about myself ever since I changed my over-eating habits and started daily work-outs last year, so I shouldn't really care anyway, but I was rather shocked and disappointed to find out I weighed over a hundred kilos with clothes and shoes on, djeebus fuck. BUT, even though my first instinct was to go to the store and gets loads of snack food, I resisted that urge and did my regular groceries. *beams with pride* So there.

(I considered not posting about this, but I decided it was important to write it down.)

So. Age of Pandora. Whoa, all new exercises today! I chose to do 10 repeats of both X-moves (Level 3), did 3 sets (Level 1) and I was dripping sweat for real even before I was finished.

Meant to do the thing right after breakfast (a light meal: 2 beschuitjes with cheese and a glass of orange juice with pulp) but then my Twitterfeed filled up with reports from the Saturday Night Special at the Las Vegas Convention, so I got distracted;) I always get so giddy when my friends are having fun and from the looks and sounds of it, this was one of those unforgetable concerts.
[livejournal.com profile] dugindeep shot some marvelous vids, here's Ruth doing a beautiful version of Bang Bang; and here's a Jensen singing for his Brother <3

After the concert, I could finally drag myself away from the screen and do my Chapter 12 Work-Out. There were two choices, I decided to go with the one that I would like to imagine myself choosing in a post apocalyptic world....

Okay, I'm using too many things as an excuse for not having time to keep up with fandom. Today I finally checked out this week's [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang artwork and I was appalled at the lack of comments all over. As a participant I always hope this long running fandom challenge pulls together at least all artists to rejoice in the celebration of fanART, but with one or two exceptions (ONE or TWO, as in that's the amount of comments on each piece of artwork!!!), it seems like everyone is too busy to compliment fellow artists. Or maybe everybody is simply ~hearting~ things on Tumblr? That's good, because I ain't doing that, so I hope art that's only posted there gets some attention too.
I'm going to focus on all the RB artwork on LiveJournal every day for the next few weeks. If you are still involved in the SPN fandom, I recommend you do the same. Support content creators, people!

This means I'm gonna cut down my Age of Pandora posts to simple check offs as soon as I've done a Chapter. I'll also keep updating my videolist for each next work-out, just no more long reviews for a while.
