Soooo, long story short, life caught up with me and I neglected my blog. Yes, I know I do this often, but hey, there's not that many people reading it anyways :). At some point I will be more dedicated and spend more time posting interesting things, but as for now my MA is more important.

Verre van zelfs. Ik heb namelijk m'n eerste grote patroon ontworpen en uitgewerkt (de andere tellen niet, die waren zo klaar). Bij deze presenteer ik jullie:
