Duh…

…I see myself falling in my old scheme again… but I have excuseeees.
The past days I was struggling with studying for my upcoming Intro to Research exam.
Our lovely school library decided to close due to moving, right now when people start having exams…
They said one could pick up books that were ordered from other schools, though.
So I did that, received an email on Friday that I could pick it up, went all the way to school just to hear: “Oh, this book actually comes from Ikaalinen. That’s not a different school, just a different campus. You can get the book on Monday.” AYFKM? I don’t need it anymore on Monday, the exam IS on Monday.
So I will pick up the book tomorrow, have it lying around for a while and then return it, cause if I don’t pick it up I will have to pay a fee, cause they ordered it there for me. -.-”
Anyways, I got the book from Aurelie. I HAAAATE reading books for exams. It is impossible. I read two pages and forget what was written on the first of them. :(
So, yeah, very much looking forward to that exam tomorrow.

Today I went voting.
For the first time in my life ever.
In Finland.
Funny, somehow.
I had thousands of discussions with people about how I can dare to not vote in Germany.
The answer is simple:
I have no idea about politics in Germany.
and
Frankly, I don’t live there at the moment, so what do I care about what changes or not?
And before I vote for someone, just to have voted, without knowing what I am doing, I just don’t do it at all.
But probably would not vote in the “big” elections in Finland either, but luckily I am not allowed to anyways.
Only the municipal elections, once I lived here for one year.

Also, I carved a pumpkin.
I don’t remember when was the last time I did that, but it is at least 11 or 12 years ago, I would say.

Ugh, that’s it.
Already too much written considering how unmotivated I am.
Wish me luck for that stupid exam. -.-

[dogs]

Yeah, I had a nice meeting with one today.

I was walking to the local bus stop to go to the gym when suddenly something tackled me from behind.
At first I thought for whatever reason that it might have been one of my friends, who wanted to surprise me. I do not have black, furry friends though, so: no.

It was a dog, rather big, black, quite beautiful one actually.
I had no idea where it came from, there was no potential owner anywhere in sight, I assume it ran away from a garden or through the open door of a flat in the neighborhood.
Anyways, it kept jumping on me, from all sides and snapped after my sleeves, backpack and jacket.
It took me a few moments to sort out whether it actually tried to attack me or just wanted to play. I came to the conclusion that it actually was not aggressive at all. It was not barking or anything, just waving its tail and probably thought I was an awesome friend to play with.

Don’t get me wrong, I really like dogs, even though I am a cat person after all, but I don’t really feel like playing when it approaches me in that kind of way.
As I have lived with a quite playful Finnish dog for a year (even though I highly doubt that Chili would ever randomly jump on strangers on the street!) I tried all kinds of Finnish dog commands that came to my mind. “NO!” “Stop.” “Sit!” “Don’t jump!” “Bad dog!” – It could not care less.

Finally a little girl came, maybe 8, and pulled the dog away on its collar.
The father of the girl came right after her, took her, dog and left to one of the houses.
No apology whatsoever!
I am quite tolerant, I know things like that can happen (even though they really, really shouldn’t!), but the least one can do when their dog jumps on a stranger is to say they are sorry!

Just imagining it would not have been me walking there, but a small child! The dog would have easily pushed it to the ground or even on the street.
Also if there would have been an old lady walking or someone who is really scared of dogs, as I was myself some years back. They would have gotten a heart attack, especially cause it really wasn’t obvious in the beginning what the dog was up to. For some seconds I was just waiting for it to bite.

It just makes me sad and angry at the same time, because it is like with children: if they are too wild, aggressive, don’t listen, don’t have respect it is never their fault, but always their parents or in that case owners!
Surely to some extend it is also the character, but even wild and playful dogs can be trained in the way that they do not immediately jump on people who walk past. I did not run or anything that could have signalized the dog I want to play.

Sometimes I think people should have to go through a test before they are allowed to have an animal or get children, just to make sure that they are able to take the responsibility!

Many dog holders will say “Don’t be like that, it just wants to play!” or something. Well, fair enough, but please take into consideration that some people might not like your little Bello, no matter how cute he seems to you.
Personally I have no problems with dogs walking free, also in domestic areas. As long as they are calm and listen to their owner! It happened a few times that some dog came to me and sniffed to check out who I am. That’s totally fine for me, but even that might be too much for other people.

I just don’t get why people get dogs without being able to handle them at all.
Think about it beforehand! Your daughters big blue eyes shouldn’t be the only reason to get one.

Well, I have a jeans and a shirt more to wash now, because they are pretty dirty of course.

Oh, well… no can do. :D

Now it would like to share some music for a change…
I heard this song already a while ago, but didn’t really pay attention.
Today at the gym the song played on TV while I was on the treadmill and I was somewhere between crying and falling off that thing…
It is really the most beautiful, touching and breathtaking song I have heard in a while.
And the discussions about the sexual orientation of the singer are annoying and senseless! It’s the voice that counts and that is awesome.
Here you go, including my own translation of it.

“Jesse Kaikuranta – Take Me Home

Come to buy me,
I am for sale.
Lots of good love
broken inside a pocket.
You get it for free.

Come to get me,
I am ready.
Memories in plastic bags,
the heart in a suitcase.
Ready to change.
Take me home.

Take me home again,
put my head and heart in their places.
Touch me in a way that will keep me from forgetting
who is the one that owns me.
Take me home.

For what price do you get me to your side?
I don’t ask for a lot.
I ask for a piece of heaven
and a few kisses.

I don’t give any guarantees, now just take the risk.
Love might hurt.
Remember, you aren’t allowed to change it
when it begins to cause remorse.
Take me home.

Take me home again,
put my head and heart in their places.
Touch me in a way that will keep me from forgetting
who is the one that owns me.

And I will do my best and more,
so you will never be disappointed,
I swear.
You fixed me again.

Take me home again,
put my head and heart in their places.
Touch me in a way that will keep me from forgetting
who is the one that owns me,
who is the one that owns me.
Take me home.”

Winter. Big time.

What happens if the winter recognizes it has been late for over one month already? Exactly, it hurries up as much as it can to get all the stuff done that it missed in the past weeks.
We had some poor single snowflakes in the end of last week already, but Monday it really started. Yesterday the world looked already quite white and after it was sunny here the whole morning today, now it started again. And it doesn’t stop. There’s so much snow at one time falling down, that you can barely see through it. This is gonna be so much fun, cause even though Finns are (of course) a million times better in dealing with it than for example Germans, it will still cause a slight chaos including delayed busses in the first days.

But at least it is not that slippery anymore.
It was earlier today, so I decided to buy new winter boots – in which I can walk without falling. I found quite nice, warm and water-proof ones for a reasonable price. The problem occurred when I went to K-Market with them and the alarm of the scanners went off. Great. :D Apparently there is some metal thing inside them, unremovable, which causes this.
The cashier and shop detective tried together to get it out, but they didn’t. :D Well, at least they deactivated it at the cashier, but I am not sure if this problem is solved for good now. It’s fun when everyone stares at you as if you are a criminal. Except the cashier and shop detective, because they seemed to know the problem already and apologized many times that I had to wait and everything. :D Anyways, there was no problem at Lidl, so I might just go there for the rest of the winter. X’D

Yesterday there was the Finnish Independence Day, it’s 94th birthday to be more exact. And to quote my classmate Janne: “She looks good for her age.” XD True.
I went to see the speech at the city hall, where they also played the national anthem and some other national songs and finished with a great firework.

I still think it’s a bit sad that Germany has problems in showing national pride due to its past, because everyone would call Germans Nazis if they did something like that.
I think it’s nice to show a bit of “love” to your father’s land as long as it is not too much. And I kinda felt like a part of the Finnish people, even though I am not Finnish and all “true Finns” would kill me for even thinking this. ;D

But now I will go back to my assignment. I managed already quite a lot of the stuff actually, even tho the deadline is next week. I’m very advanced. This is so not me. But I just really need to get it out of my head.

Forest Weekend.

And again it has been almost a week since the last blogentry and again I wonder how it is possible that blog-post-time and life-time go in a different speed!?!?
Strange indeed.

I could start writing again what I had already written on Tuesday before wordpress decided to eat it. But I won’t. Seriously can’t be bothered right now. :P Wasn’t too crucial anyways. :D

Two hours ago I came back from a visit in Mäntyharju at my former host family’s place. I like to call it tenderly “the forest” or “the hole”. Because there is nothing…
But it is awesome to be there, I recognized it once more. When I am in Tampere I don’t really think about it. I have no time to go there, because there is something on most of the weekends and I happen to not really care. Not that I wouldn’t miss them a lot, but there’s so much to do here, that I don’t feel the urgent need of going there.
And when I’m there I wonder how I managed to be away for so long.
It’s like being in another world.

I recognized it yesterday. We watched a movie with Kukka, Tanja, Piia and Tomi and afterwards I was sitting upstairs in the living room, only with candle light and a cup of glögi and it just felt as it did when I still lived there.
I love the friends and party I have here, what I missed in Mäntyharju, but there I have the “family”.

And then there is still the phenomenon with the Finnish.
I mean I am able to speak Finnish also in Tampere, I just don’t do it, I’m too lazy, I feel stupid and lacking tons of words when I speak it. But as soon as I come to Mäntyharju my knowledge of Finnish seems to double or even more.
I’m serious. I don’t have a clue how but it is possible.
I know I could use Finnish with my finnish friends here, too, but then I am always too lazy or when I speak with them in Finnish and I would have something to tell, then I recognize that there are words missing that I would have to look up or explain or ask for or say in English and then I would have to think about how to put all the words to a sentence that makes sense and then – I decide it is actually not THAT important, so I don’t say anything at all. And then again people are annoyed or confused or wonder if they did something wrong or think I don’t speak enough Finnish or… something.
It is annyoing. And I don’t mean the reaction of the people, I can understand that. I mean the fact that it is like that.

Especially cause I recognized again how different it is in Mäntyharju. I was for a walk with Kukka and the dogs and blahblahblahing so much that I am scared her ears started to hurt. XD And I did blahblah in Finnish, not caring about missing words or possible mistakes I would make. It is just so normal, I am used to it. Mäntyharju is not a place I am supposed to speak English, at least that is how it is in my head.
I wonder if it will ever change in Tampere, but I’m afraid it won’t.

Anyways…
We have been in Heinola at Jitta’s volleyball match on Saturday. They won, of course. ;D
Afterwards we visited Kukka’s sister and her family. Was nice to see them again, too. :)

Now I am back home and I think I need to go to Mäntyharju soooooon again. But probably it’s like with the blogentries. Whooooooops – and it’s half a year that I haven’t been there. :/

Aynways, the upcoming week looks promising.
Polish party.
Dinner at Anniina’s.
No Marketing.
IKEA visit with the school and NO afternoon classes = shopping.

Niiice.

I’ll keep you posted.
Maybe.

Russia and more…

So, now I finally make it. Time seems to fly when it comes to blog posts, but not in every other sense. That’s quite weird. I don’t like it.
Anyways, I have overcome my autumn depression, I guess. No, it wasn’t an autumn depression… it’s just… there’s a lot of stuff  going on in my mind at the moment and I really don’t know where to put it, how to handle it and who I can talk to about it. So sometimes it needs just little things and everything gets too much. That happened in the last 2 days. But now there’s again so much coming up, that I probably won’t have time for it, so all stupid worries and fears are put to exile to a very small corner of my mind. Maybe I’ll give them some vodka and they can have fun on their own.

I came back from St. Petersburg on Monday and I survived “the Russia” once more. And this time even better than before. :D I remember everything and I wasn’t really wasted even once. Proud of myself. ;D
At first I was kinda sad, because I was the only tutor going and I didn’t know many of the exchange students at that point. But still it turned out to be a blast. I made lots of new friends and we really had a great time, even though it was really different from last time.
I was disappointed by the Russian dinner this time, but then there was the canal cruise instead and it was just super awesome. :)
Also the limousine tour was great again.

On Tuesday after school I went for some 2nd hand shopping with Alisa, mostly for her birthday and Halloween party, because we needed costumes.
Oh yeah. Very important at this point: I do know that Halloween was already on the 31st of October, I am not stupid, even though lots of people seem to think that.
Yes, I get bitchy about it.
Same shit last year, when we had our Halloween party a day before, because in Finland there happens to be a normal workday on the 1st, so 31st is a bad day for having parties. “But it isn’t Halloween yet!”
Now the same the other way around. Are you really thinking I am / we are stupid, or do you just need to annoy me?
Do me a favor and give me a break!
Thank you.
Back to topic…
I planned on being a vampire, even though after Twilight its just super embarrassing and cliché.
But while shopping with Alisa I got another idea. Still vampire, but without being super cliché “I dress gothic black, draw myself evil panda eyes and put blood all over my mouth”…. no…
Sarah from Dance of the Vampires it’s gonna be.
Too be more exact, Sarah after she was bitten an turned into a vampire. In case the teeth don’t stay where they are supposed to be only bitten and not yet turned. XDD

Today we had a company visit with the school which turned out to be a lot more interesting and informative than our lectures normally are. xD
After that we went for some coffee with Olli, Anniina, Aurelie, Jaana and Jari.
Aaaaaand in the evening there was again the improv show of JadaJada and it was again superfunny… I am a fan. xD

So yeah, actually it’s Thursday so it’s supposed to be weekend. But someone really hates us, so they decided to let us have English on Friday mornings this term. Seriously?
I mean, one good thing about it: there might be some blog posts coming up every Friday morning from now on. xDDD
Haaah, yeah… xD

Ohhhh, by the way, one very important thing! ihmepensas wrote this comment on my Dance of the Vampires review, in case you didn’t see, and added a link for more pictures!!! There you can also have a look at the very differen Koukol and the awesome dresses of the vampire ensemble – check it out: HERE!

Last but not least, I want to share a picture I took when we arrived with the boat to Helsinki on Monday morning. I am sure the beauty of this moment wasn’t possible to capture in a picture, but I tried my best and I was suprised about my camera. No after-photoshopping needed…

For the Germans…

…and all other non-Finns/not living in Finland/not studying in Finland.
Of course those who do are allowed to read it too, but it might be less interesting.
Because… it’s about the overalls again.

For those who didn’t read my blogentry about them and want to know what it is about, check it here.

On Thursday is Hämeenkadun Appro, as I already mentioned somewhen earlier, so I took some time today to polish op my overalls, sew some patches and so on.
And I thought… when I am always talking about my overalls, also to those who never really get to see them, it would be kind of a good idea to introduce them more closely.
No, they don’t have a name. Yet.
Actually it’s a good idea.
Any suggestions?? xD

Anyways… I took some pictures today, so they are very up to date…

To start with… THE FRONT!

1) It’s random glow sticks I hijacked from Markus. Or he rather gave them to me. Actually there is no sense in keeping them there, but this is just the point of overalls… so they stay. :D

2) Manchester United lanyard I got when I visited the Old Trafford stadium. It’s a must.

3) It’s Pasi! (Uniklubi’s guitarplayer) On a button.

4) Anti breast-cancer ribbon. Self explaining.

5) Finland.

6) Hämeenkadun Appro, Level 1. Approbatur. (5 drinks in 4 hours.) Level 2, Cum Laude (7 drinks in 4 hours) will follow on Thursday! =D

7) CLINT City Tour. The tour through Tampere that CLINT offers for exchange students provides patches for all exchange students and tutors attending. :D

8) Finland/Germany lanyard. Thank you Basti! :D

9) Red nose! We random got it for free at a shop on Vappu and I couldn’t be bothered to get rid of it. :D

10) “Never run for a bus! Especially not when it is driving upwards in a 90° angle!” – Spongebob. :D

11) Tuutori. It’s finnish for tutor. Obviously. And I am one. Plus I really like it. ;D It’s so cute with the traffic-sign style.

12) Union Jack. Because I lost my heart in Manchester.

13) Haalaribileet. One of the many parties dedicated to the overalls. :D

14) Tursajaiset. The festival for the 1st year students. Isn’t the octopus just über-cute?

15) The legpart I changed with Markus. :) Embroidered it with the Japanese version of his name (マルクス) and a heart lately. I’m so cute, am I not?

…lets go to the back now…

1) Tuhkalehto. It’s a band.

2) John Deere. Thank you, Markus. <3

3) jobstep.net. Some random website for students. Why do I have it? I don’t know. It was for free. o.O

4) Anni. It’s my name.

5) Bubirundi, one club in our school that organizes awesome parteeeys.

6) Lithuania. I’ve been there.

Hah… so now I got explained some of the things.
I looove my overalls. :D

Yeah, so that’s more or less the only thing I managed to get done today. Except going to school.
We builded bridges with having nothing else than paper and scissors. No glue or anything. And it had to be strong enough to hold a toy car and one of your group had to be able to fit through under it. xD
We so managed. :D With more luck than anything else… but still :D
The class was Communication Skills. Quite obvious, isnt it? Welcome to the tourism programme. xD

Oh and today was the fourth day of my trial of dietary change, which includes to eat more regularily and smaller amounts at a time, instead of sometimes way too much and sometimes nothing at all like I did in the past months.
I mean it wasn’t anything bad, but I was kinda worried it might turn into something like a more serious eating disorder or whatever.
Additionally I try to eat more healthy, lots of fruits and salad and stuff like that. And no candies for a while at least.
I am succeeding quite well so far. =D

Sooo… enough boredom for today… :D

It’s time…

…to leave the country.
For finns.
Soon.

I saw the first snowflakes in the rain yesterday. Just for a short while, but still. Even that is way too much. Autumn has just began, winter can’t come yet!

On Thursday we went to see JadaJada’s show in O’Connell’s. It was awesome as last time.
Afterwards I went to Fat Lady with Joonas, Elli and Pasi for the overall party.
When Joonas, Anniina and me left O’Connell’s it was raining as hell and Joonas and me were completely wet when we reached Fat Lady.
But it was still nice, after we dried.
Especially to see Elli again after such a long time.
Later also Antti came… it was pretty cool.

Yesterday I didn’t do anything except trying to get rid of my hangover. XD Which basically took all day. Thank god I was fine again in the evening to go to Aurelie’s place for karaoke. :D We had a lot of fun there, as always. ;D

Oh, and I found out why everyone is so hyped about Chai Latte.
The reason is simple: it is fucking GOOOOOOD. xD
I want more. Actually I am gonna make another cup in a second. ;D
I don’t plan on moving anymore for the whole weekend anyways. xD

Autumn Sun

Sometimes it seems to help to complain.
Yesterday I was annoyed about the weather, because it was rainy, way too cold, windy and simply disgusting. All Finland fans in Germany would love that, of course. But in fact, 90% of the Finns and people who live here for longer than 6-12 months simply want to run away.
Today it was at least sunny, so it didn’t feel that cold, even tho it actually was. :D

I went for a trip to the other side today. Or better – to TTY, the technical university, which is here in Hervanta.
The reason was simple: they still sold tickets for the overall party tomorrow, which were already sold out in our school. :D Of course we could have gone there without tickets, it’s only 2 Euros more at the door and last time at that kind of party there wasn’t a big queue when it wasn’t that late yet.
The thing is that with the presale ticket we will get a patch for the overall, which we don’t get if we buy the ticket at the door. :D
But yeah, thank god for TTY, now we have tickets.
I might need some party for a change. :D ;D

Plus there is JadaJada’s show again tomorrow. An american friend of mine has this impro-comedy group. They had a show already last month and it was totally awesome.
So if you happen to live in Tampere:
Tomorrow, 8pm,
Irish Bar O’Connells!!
:D It is definitely worth a visit! I haven’t laughed so hard ever before. :D

Then on Friday we have a Karaoke party with our class. I hope there are a lot of people coming, also those who left the class. :D

So, the weekend will be full of parteeeey! :D

Yeah, and I wasn’t completely lazy today.
I actually went to the gym for one whole hour today!
Probably my whole body is hurting tomorrow, but it was worth it. xD

I don’t celebrate Thursdays…

I hate Thursdays. I always hated them.
I have no idea what’s about Thursdays, but already back in high school it was always the longest day with the stupidest subjects. Continued in Mäntyharju that on Thursdays everything went wrong and now in school again…
I’m definitely not a Thursday person.

Credits go to Jan Ammann, Lidl fruit cocktail and plain jogurt, that this blog entry is not completely full of hate.
Those three in combination kinda managed to calm me down. I’m greatful.

I mean, at least it’s weekend, I survived a superboring day at school… I should be happy about it.
Plus it’s the first weekend in like one month which is not completely full of things from the beginning to the end. Time for mememe and myself.
Means I will be horrible bored by tomorrow morning at the latest, but don’t tell me that. It could ruin my mood. Again.

I went to Sonera today to ask about changing the contract to unlimited internet. Wanted to do that some time ago already, but I was too lazy.
But now I heard that hightech-country Japan is not able to use simple SMS on their mobiles, but emails. So it might be about time to get the fucking unlimited shit.
Anyways, I went there and they told me I couldn’t change it, as the contract was not made by me.
Of course it wasn’t, Kukka made it. But it’s my phone, it (should) say my name, I pay the bill – what the heck?
Gotta love Sonera. Or phone services in general.

When I went home by bus I witnessed once again the most funniest thing (for Germans) ever.
Finns and traffic-jam(mies).
I call it traffic-jammy, cause it wasn’t a traffic-jam. It was not even a traffic-jammy. It was 1-2km stop and go on Hervannan Valtaväylä, the big street towards Hervanta, because they renew the street there or something, so there was one short point where the 3 lanes had to go into 1 lane.
I know the problem, it’s not like Germans would be dealing too well with that kind of problems when it comes to taking care of other cars…. but Finns…. it is indiscribable.
The cars from all three lanes try to get into that one lane in the middle at the same time. It seems they get blind for everything around them in that minute. “Close your eyes, push the gas through and hope to survive!”
And if one of the cars decides to stop and let others into the lane, it often enough happens that two drivers get this very idea on the same point. So they both/all three stop, then they see that the others stop, too and think “Oh, they stop! So I can drive!” and then they all three start to drive again just to brake sharply a second later because they would crash otherwise.
It’s better than cinema.
I have never seen it taking so much time to switch to one lane as here in Finland.

And that’s not the only funny thing. Even more entertaining is the reaction from the Finnish people in the bus! (And I bet also in the cars, if they are not the ones who are just fighting for the lane. xD)
There is the busdriver screaming through the bus “Yeah! This is why the bus was late at Keskustori! The street is completely blocked!!!”… yeah. This is always and the only reason that TKL busses are late. Sure. Never happens otherwise.
Then people on the phone “Hey, it’s me. I’ll be late, we’re in a huuuuge traffic jam.” or “Hi, I have no idea when I will be home, nothing is moving here, it could take a while!”… remember: it’s still the 1-2km stop and go. Nothing more. No 13-20km stop without go as we like to have in Germany sometimes.
The shy and not talkative finns, who need their private space (and a lot of it!) suddenly start to talk to the random stranger next to them, about the traffic jam of course, they fall onto the laps of the person next to them when trying to see through the aisle out of the front window of the bus.
They are TAKING PICTURES… of the traffic jam! Which isn’t one. I’m serious. I’m not kidding you.
It’s amazing!
I had such a hard time not to burst out in laughter. xD

But yeah… that was that.

I’m surprised to see that I apparently have some readers and not even that few. :D
Wheee….
I’m working on the “Worth a Visit” menu in the sidebar atm.
So if you think your blog is worth a visit, just let me know the address! :) No re-linking required. ;)

Ja yksin taas…

To start with a question: Could you, dear wordpress, stop changing things? It’s hard enough for me to post something here every now and then (as everyone can see) and it doesn’t make anything easier that you decided to hide the “New Post” button somewhere…

Anyways…
I’ve been quite everywhere the last weeks, so I might try to get it through as the explanation why I haven’t been writing anything in a – again – quite long time.

I’ve been to Hungary with my boyfriend earlier this month. We visited one of the former exchange students. :)
It was fuuuun. I especially enjoyed our daytrip to Vienna, where we met another friend.
I wanted to go to Vienna for a loooong time already and I’m happy I managed. It is definitely one of the most gorgeous cities I have ever seen and so worth a visit.

Then we went to Heinävesi and Kajaani to store Markus’ car at the cottage while he is in Japan.
We spent the weekend with his father and stepmother and I also got to know his brother and sister + their families. It was really nice, even tho I was horribly panicking before, because his father and stepmum don’t speak English so I knew I would have to speak Finnish. Which itself wouldn’t have been a big issue, but I had this phobia of speaking Finnish to Markus, wherever it came from, no idea.
But it turned out to work well. We started to speak Finnish already on the way there and it’s easier than I thought.
Even though after all the bunch of Finnish gave me headaches during the whole weekend.
Still it is hard if you have to give others (especially your boyfriend’s family) a good first impression about you, when you are not able to picture yourself like you would in your mothertongue or at least English, as the language skills just still aren’t enough (English neither, I was about to write “the language skills don’t riitä” -.-)… I just feel like sounding kinda retarded at points. But yeah, I hope they don’t think so. ;)

Last weekend we spent in Helsinki, where I met his other 2 brothers. So now it’s only his mother who I don’t know yet.
But for the first time of real “meeting your bf’s family” and then even in Finnish it went really well. At least I liked all of them a lot and felt comfortable around them. :)
We went to see some car fair in Helsinki with another friend on Saturday. It was actually really cool (no Markus, I don’t write that to impress you, I’m just not AS uninterested in cars as you think ;P), there was a lot of tuned shit and awesome paintworks and so on… different kind of cars, trucks and motorbikes.
Made me miss going to see a Ralli though… especially cause two days before I saw Aris name on TV during Ralli SM and awww it made me miss Mäntyharju even more. But I might go there soon. :) Probably in two or three weeks.

Yeah, today was doomsday then, Markus left to Japan. Or – to be more exact – he is still somewhere over Russia in this very moment. But yeah, think positively – the 6 months have started to go over today. ;D And in 85 days I’m flying there myself to see him. :D
As I was quite down I met a friend whos on a visit in Finland and we went for Kebab.
Turned out to be a bad idea, as the kebabguy started to chat with us, asked our names, age and so one and my dear Aino started to tell him everything. Paranoid me panicks. I mean, she is right, he probably does that with every girl, but still. I don’t like it in general, especially from guys like that, but after too little sleep and having to say goodbye to Markus it was just too much. Especially cause the guy wanted our numbers in the end and didnt stop being annoying until we gave them to him – even tho of course mine was made up by myself and not my real number… xD
Still… I was SO happy to get out of there and according to my friend I was white as a wall. And my hunger was gone, too. Bah. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to eat Kebab again. Scaryscaryfuckingscary.

Then of course Facebook started to fuck around once more, to make sure to ruin the last nerves I had left. Great.
And when I wanted to make myself a hot chocolate to calm down I recognized that the milk had turned bad. v_v
Life hates me. xD

Anyways… the news of my life in brief.
And now I’m going to search for a replacement for the missing hot chocolate. Meh.
