Joyful summer

Finnish summer  is probably the happiest day of the year. It comes and goes without you even noticing. After seeing all the drastic changes of the temperature I surely understand that statement. In some areas earlier this week it even snowed to be more precise. What a joy to be in Finland! I start to miss those summers I used to spend in Greece unable to move my little finger because I was too terrified to face the amount of sweat a simple body movement could cause. Not to mention the burning when I would put Greek yogurt to cool it down ( it actually helps by the way). God bless yogurt!
Even though I don’t like extremely hot weather summer still should be summers and winters, winters. I really cant feel the summer fever yet! I curse the day I didn’t pack more warm clothes with me. The coldest it got yesterday was 6 degrees which is like a Greek winter to me. Despite the bad weather though we still celebrated midsummer. This year our fire was significantly smaller than on previous years ( click here to see pictures from last summer's midsummer). It was more like a barbeque-type-of-thing which I found cosy enough. As long as there were enough sausages I was happy! A million mosquito bites later though I decided to give up and went inside to warm up.
the sun decided to come out for a second
 The trashy novels I read while on holidays. I am the kind of person who can't stand books with a big meaning that take me a week to figure out what it was actually about. This instead was quite the oposite...I probably should stop reading crap like this...oh well!
I think I will start wearing these more frequently if this rain doesn't stop! Don't they look stylish? :P I really hope this weather gets better...I really do!
Happy summer everybody! I hope I didn't totally destroy your mood :)

Quality time

Hola munchkins! It might be Friday the 13th but I haven't had any bad luck so far, phew! Not that I believe in that kind of stuff, but it's still a relief!

As to continue with my exciting life there isn't much to talk about unfortunately. I have been trying to find myself some hobbies or at least something to keep me busy so I came up with painting. I had some old paints somebody had given me ages ago so I thought to give it a try. Bellow you can see the result of my great inspiration. Before you start judging I haven't painted anything for the last 8 years, so I have the painting skills of a 12 year old (as you can probably notice). I got really excited when I finnished my moomi themed painting so I decided to show it to my mom and my sister. Immediately they told me why does nuuskamuikkunen (in English snufkin) have an amish beard? In case you wonder why he has an amish beard it's his hair!! Now I can't look at the painting the same way I did before...maybe I need to find another hobby after all :P
 To leave behind my painting I decided to go to the library and these babes came along with me.
Some trashy novels in English and Spanish to maintain my level in those languages and then some movies to kill my time.
Gladly I had the honor to have my mom visit me for a couple of days so we went to my grandfather's summerhouse to spend some quality time in the middle of nature. Even though we went there just for a day it was still relaxing and we were lucky enough to have awesome weather, yey!
Me passing out in the sun hoping to get a small tan. I think I have to accept it that that day will never come.  
Lazaros sent me this picture today so maybe it's about time to embrace my paleness.
It's bed time now!
Hopefully the rain will stop by tomorrow! Fingers crossed :)
Bye munchkins <3

Happy Sunday!

Hello strangers or friends or whoever you are! Job hunting has been keeping me "busy" for the last days, but sometimes it feels like I have had too much time for myself to think about random things. I am definitely having this phase again of "what the hell am I doing with my life?". Other days I just keep reminding myself that I am only 20 and I don't need to have everything all figured out. I am sure I will be laughing at myself looking back in ten years (that's the amount of time I give myself to gather my shit together), but for now I am just frustrated with myself.

I guess it's hard to be again in a place where I don't want to be. I miss being outside without having the rain hit my face in the middle of the summer. Now I am just trying to send as many e-mails as possible for open work positions, but the rest of the time I just feel like doing nothing. My best friend has become my computer, stalking people's lives on facebook (creepy...) and watching Plain Jane on MTV (yes, I admit it I love that show :P). Maybe I need to get a bit more active...maybe!

To end this post, here are some pictures to cheer the mood a bit ;)

Now I am going to eat some ice-cream, watch some trashy Tv show and try to feel good about my life.

Thanks for the lemonade

I am officially unemployed people! "Supposedly" I had a job interview to my old job yesterday, but it turned out that she just wanted to see me so she could tell me that she doesn't have a job for me (?@#*%!?????). The thing that makes me mad is that she let me wait all these months, when she could have told me from the beginning what's the situation.
Either way...after my little break down yesterday, I decided to pull myself together and find something else. Job hunting is on! Gladly I have amazing friends and lot's of chocolate to cheer me up! I can't say that being back to Finland started on the right foot, but things could be a lot worse I guess. On the bright side I can have some summer holidays if I don't find anything :P
 The person who has been cheering me up and sharing chocolate cake with me :D
Here is a lesson for me at least:
"You cannot tailor-make the situations in life but you can tailor-make the attitudes to fit those situations."
Will I ever learn??
