Hello there!

It is time to update this blog for a change! Last weekend we celebrated midsummer here in Finland and as every year we had this big fire situation going on! It was also one of the rare occasions that I got three days off from work so I got to enjoy some peace and quite at our summer cottage. Without saying anything else I will let the pictures speak for themselves.

¡Ya veremos qué pasa!

Hello there!

A few days ago after a series of problems I finally got to send my papers to the University of Barcelona and in about three weeks from now I will know if I got in or not!

It is amazing though how complicated the whole process was and I still think that there is something wrong with the application. I must admit that my mom's help came in quite handy as I had no idea of how to do this but let's hope that everything is correct!

This is very exciting but I think that I still  haven't realized of how big this would be for me if I got accepted. It would mean that I would move to Barcelona for three or four years which isn't bad at all! But even if I don't get in (which is big possibility) my plan B would be to have another gap year. No matter what the result is I am happy and I know that I will continue to be happy! :)

A year ago I would have been totally stressed out about this but I am glad that I am not too worried about it as much as I thought I was going to be. Stress is not on option for me anymore! The level of stress I used to have was that high up that you couldn't even see where it ended! I even lost half of my hair because of the stress so you people out there...don't stress! Easy to say that but hard to control it.

I am focusing now on the things I can do and I seriously need to start knitting those shocks I was talking about on my previous post!
The sun is still shining in Finland even at 10 o'clock at night or probably even later than that! 

I feel like an old woman when I listen to this song but I love it!

Mission: Keep myself busy

Hello there!

I can't believe that I haven't written anything on this blog for such a long time. I can't say that I have been extremely busy but I needed some time on my own.

I think coming back to Finland was harder than I thought in the beginning. Now that I have had some time to figure out things and think of my life here I am not going to complain about anything anymore. Work isn't so bad after all and I get to see my friends and family here which is good! I am going to use my time the best way possible. I already lent some books from the library and I think I am going to start knitting another pair of socks just to get ready for the winter :D mmm...maybe I will knit two pairs if I am fast enough! I also started playing the flute again and I am happy about that because I had forgotten my flute somewhere for ages...hupsy!

Maybe this isn't going to be as bad as I thought...I actually enjoy more and more being here. I just needed some time on my own to calm down.

So the solution to my problem is to look ahead and keep myself busy!

Settling down


These past few weeks I have given up on blogging a bit but I will try to keep this thing updated! Lot's of things have happened these past few days that I have been in Finland ( or actually not so many now that I think about it).

First of all my first day here was quite terrible to be honest. Tears were just falling down my cheeks and I had this terrible feeling of  " OH MY GOD THIS IS THE END OF THE WORLD!". I guess I am going back to my drama queen habbits...not good!! The worst thing for me is getting used to the idea of being in one place for three and a half months. It's not a week or two, it's 14 bloody weeks!! After traveling from one place to another, staying in one place feels like an impossible task. I feel like a bird in a cage. Okay, I am exaggerating again hupsy!

Even though things are going very well for me I still find it difficult to be here. I am half Finnish but I don't feel this connection to this country anyhow. I have to force myself to be happy here and that takes a lot of energy. Sometimes I wish I was just from one country but then I wouldn't be the person I am now. Thanks to Finland I got to spend an awesome gap year and I have a job now to be thankful for so I think about the positive side. I can't salsa dance here but I can go to the library...mah, that does sound boring!

I am pulling myself back together little by little and getting used to the way of life here. Besides the future is still open heheeeee. Tomorrow I am going to do the application for the University of Barcelona AAAAA! This is exciting and scary but this is what I want and I need to get away from both Finland and Greece and start my own life. If I don't get accepted this year then maybe next year, right? There is no harm on trying at least.

There are many exciting chapters to come! grrrr
