Snow.

After I had a really useful *drowns in irony* discussion about my opinion towards snow, which is obviously wrong, or at least containing things I didn’t even know about, I decided that it’s a perfect topic for a blog entry.
Snow.
It was snowing all evening yesterday and we have about 5cm now.
I was amused by the exchange students, especially the Spanish ones, who are not used to that amount of snow in the beginning of November, who were jumping through he snow like little kids having a lot of fun.
No. I do NOT see myself as something better as them and neither as a Finn. I don’t know if people are jealous of me living here or whatever, but for me it’s nothing that special and nothing that makes me feel like I’m better than others. Oô But yeah…
I just thought it was so cute, because I was exactly the same one year ago!

And yeah, it starts to get annoying when you hear every German (or whoever not in Finland and without snow) scream that they want snow too – no matter if you like snow or not. I even heard it from finnish people who love snow, that it gets annyoing.
Mostly because of the fact, that 99% of those are 100% sure that their opinion would never ever change! That’s the hilarious thing, because I was exactly as crazy about snow as they are. It needed one winter to change.
Doesn’t mean that EVERYONE who is in Finland or any other snowing country for a while will hate snow! That’s bullshit and I never said that either! But it’s nothing that special anymore. And it also MIGHT change and that’s what people refuse to believe.
I know a lot of finnish people. And I know a lot of finnish people who love snow.
I know also Russian people who love snow, even though they have enough over there. xD *pokes Maria*
And I also do know Finns who hate snow more than everything else. *pokes Inka and co.*
And they are still not moving away from Finland, like I was told I should think of.
Finland is not just about snow and coldness, I thought people know that finally! -.-”
Plus also the snow just belongs to Finland and makes it what it is.

I don’t hate snow. It can just be really annoying, if busses are late, you can neither drive nor walk, you get all wet and whatever. (Note the big difference between Germany and Finland here either please! NOT comparable.)

BUT to avoid future arguments, I decided I will beginn to like snow again.
Yes.

And here are my pro-snowliking points:

  • it makes dark nights lighter
  • it looks pretty on trees, grass, etc.
  • it belongs to winter & christmas
  • it’s at least a lot better than rain
  • it’s hides the ugly brownish late-autumn colors
  • you can build snowmen named Jussi
  • you can build snowcastles with your au pair kids
  • it’s a shitload of fun to make hole-digging competition in 2m-high snowhills on the soccer field behing your house
  • it’s even more fun to try to get out of your 1,5m deep snow hole on you own
  • tobogganing is AWESOME
  • (especially down a just 2 meter long but almost 90-degree-angle hill XDDD)
  • it’s a good excuse for being late
  • you can feed birds
  • you can wear your fancy green icepeak jacket
  • you can wear your awesome Hervanta-bobblehat
  • there’s nothing better than walking on actual ASPHALT for the first time after more than 4 months!
  • it’s fun to just randomly jump into a snowhill
  • it’s fun if you want to get out of someones way while being tobogganing with your Dad, therefore step aside onto a ditch filled with snow and “crash” half a meter downwards xDDDDD (it’s YEARS ago, but I still remember that very moment. xD)
  • it’s fun if your Dad tries to stick the firework rocket on New Years Eve in the snow instead of putting it into a bottle, it explodes on the ground, your Mom gets almost a heart attack and the snow is black. XD
  • it’s fun to throw snowballs at people and then pretend it wasn’t you xD
  • it’s awesome to drink tea and eat cookies while it’s snowing outside
  • Snowboarding rocks, even though I fail.
  • the best game ever is to listen to the wheels of the cars on the streets in spring and say if they have winter or summer tires. :DDDD (not too closely related to snow itself, but still)

Yes… that’s quite a lot.
YAY for snow!!

And YAY for everyone having their OWN opinion about it.
Thank you!

What more?
ICC Skills was awesome today. I really loved it, it was sooo interesting. =D Just needed to say that…

Tomorrow alcohol testing with school. xD YAY.

And I got a lot of compliments for my finnish the last days. *.*
I was even told I sounded completely like a finn. Doubt that though. xD

    I remember this day, too. You screamed “I never had that much fun in ALL my life” (all your life was 6 or 8 years those days…)

    # it’s fun if your Dad tries to stick the firework rocket on New Years Eve in the snow instead of putting it into a bottle, it explodes on the ground, your Mom gets almost a heart attack and the snow is black. XD
