Finally. Finals are over. It’s a bit weird having to remind myself and everyone I meet of the exceptional fact that 1, I am a vocational student and 2, I am in second grade. Not that it changes anything, but the situation is a bit special anyway. The backstory for the confused ones. In Finland, […]

My own apartment. Still the absolute best choice I’ve made so far in my life. After this weekends FSS board meeting I headed back to my parents place for dinner, and when my plans for later that evening got canceled, I decided to stay over. We had such a cozy evening the whole family, eating […]

Happy International Women’s day. Or not. I’m extremely torn about celebrating this day. Like being a woman is anything better than being a man or something else? I’d be totally comfortable with celebrating this day if we lived in one of following three scenarios. If we lived in a world where there was two genders […]

Eating some pasta. I’m totally done, finito, loppu, slut. But it was an awesome week. On Monday I had the English listening comprehension for my matriculation exam, and on Tuesday I had the best dentist appointment of my life. Turns out, not only are my teeth more than fine but really nice dentists actually exist. […]

I just decided to take a moment off and appreciate what I have in life. I booked flight tickets to Copenhagen and Strasbourg, so now I have at least one trip planned for every upcoming month until summer. In one and a half week I head over to Denmark for a meeting with the Nordic […]

Some days, being under 18 sucks a lot. I usually don’t care about age. And I’m not even that defined by my age. But I have to say that no one made moving away from home at 17 easy. When I wanted to sign the rent contract, I had to get a paper from the […]

I’m working from home today. My internship ended last Friday and school starts next Monday so in theory I have a week of vacation. Which we all know is complete bullshit unless I would be sent to an island far away with a good assistant promising to do my job and someone else paying all […]

Guys. Something amazing just happened. I smiled because I felt so incredibly happy. It’s past midnight. It’s the officially the second day of the new year 2016. It is also (officially) the second day that I am a Helsinki citizen. The past year has been totally crazy and upside down in so many ways, and […]

When I was 11, I remember getting in to a fight with my Mom over some random rule we had at home that I didn’t like. I packed everything I owned into plastic bags and put them in a corner to have them wait another 7 years until I could finally move away. Most of […]
