My summer of boredom...

Not that anyone cares, but I know it's been quite awhile since I've written. And it's not because my summer has been full of exciment and thrill, trust me. I think it's just that I got in the habit of not writing after many months, and it has just stuck with me. I wish I had something interesting to write about, like summer trips, new story ideas, or book reviews (I've been rereading the Harry Potter series--I'm on the third book now, hooray for Lupin! Hooray for Sirius Black! Hooray for butterbeer!), but I don't. All I have is an old story idea I've been working on for what seems like ages (and I'm only 9 pages, not even 5,000 words into the story!), some bored hours spent shelving in the Dewey Decimal system at my new job at the library (I know--I stopped working at the bookstore and switched to the library, my aren't I adventurous. Actually, when I found out I had the job, I had this ridiculous notion that I'd be facing dangerous monsters and tricky enchantments in the lower levels just like Lirael; ha, I have never been more wrong in my life, unless you consider the Dewey Decimal system to be a monster).
Anyway, I have absolutely nothing good to show you, so I thought I might include a picture from my travels in Amsterdam last summer (instead of doing one big post on my trip, I'll include one picture with every post I write, including a description of said picture).

This is the view from the kitchen of my cousin's apartment in Amsterdam, Netherlands. I just love love love the apartments in Amsterdam (well, okay, I could do without the ankle-twisting dutch staircases)--especially if they have those cute little garden houses in the back like this one does!

More later,
Sookie :-)
