The first day of the rest of my life

Posted by walterheck

After coming home from Barcelona I had roughly two weeks before I would be off to the states, so I had to make the most of my time. I filled my first days with working and preparing all kinds of things to be able to leave the EU for 3 months.

I also just started working with Arjen, a dutch MySQL guy from Oz, so I spent quite a bit of time getting to know and organise the systems we use at Open Query.
Beyond that I visited Paul and Aldo for some beers, my old house for a quick dinner and my friend Maarten from Den Haag.
On friday, I was off to Enschede to visit my very good friends Ewoud and Irene. I spent a wonderful weekend there, and it ended up being life-altering: I finally cut my hair!
I have had long hair for the past 14 years, so it was a really big deal for me to finally cut it off. All the signs were right though: I had been thinking about it more and more (this means, more than once a month 😉 ) over the past years, I always wanted to have it done by very good friends and I wanted to go out with a bang. This weekend, there was a nice concert with two bands I love: Amon Amarth and Obituary. I also saw Obituary in Belo Horizonte and Amon Amarth in Vancouver. The circle was complete 🙂
before we went to the concert I told Ewoud and Irene that i would be getting drunk but they had the go-ahead to razor my head.
After the concert we almost forgot. We ended up doing it in the middle of the night and while irene was cutting (and feeling guilty 😉 ), Ewoud was making pictures and videos. Luckily he has been through the same thing, so he knows exactly what it feels like. I was kind of shocked with the result, but also pleasantly surprised that my head without hair doesn’t even look that bad 🙂
