All the Cool Stuff I Did in Amsterdam

I think it’s safe to say that my week off school was well spent. It’s also safe to say that it was anything but wholesome (sorry, mom lol). Lately I’ve been feeling burnt out. And truthfully, I couldn’t remember the last time I had a real day off before going on my little vacation. So…
