Spend the whole afternoon in a skybox in the Amsterdam ArenA. Started a new project at work and this was the kick-off meeting. Was nice to enter the stadium. At the entrance, the walls all are covered with dutch-soccer-heroes. Nice to spend some time into a non-typical work place. Had a nice view on the pitch. Had to think all the time about a sketch from a dutch comedian group called Jiskefet . In this sketch they act as a bunch off students (corpsballen), hanging around in the skybox at Ajax. They are completely bored and order all kinds of things including a bunch of snacks and a singer to take the snacks upstairs…
But my meeting was 100% seriousness. Discussing about what would make a (this) project a succes? What will be my role and all these kind of things.
It was original still to have a meeting at this location.
Went in time away, because I wanted to sport at work before leaving for home. Was quite difficult to find the exit in this stadium… everything was empty, no stewards or security to see. Luckely we discovered some emergency exit which was open, as it should be. Again it was mega dark when I went home.
When I got home…. aaarrrggghhh.
