A Very Late Instagram Post

Saturday, February 22, 2014

I was really surprised to realize that I haven't posted Instagram posts for quite a while now. So here's a very late Instagram post, from November and December last year. I look at these pictures and see how I fell in love with Finland. It took me a while, but then it struck me as a lightning and it's gonna last forever.

Clockwise: wool hats displayed in Joensuu Arts & Crafts market; learning colors in Finnish; beautiful autumn
landscape in Joensuu; vitamin D pills called Aurinko - "The Sun"

Can You Be Happy for 100 Days in a Row?

Monday, February 17, 2014

I once read that tomorrow was "a mystical land where 99% of all human productivity, motivation and achievement is stored".

Actually, I'd say it is Monday. And chances are that you know it from your own experience.

Apart from New Year's, Monday is the time when we start dieting, quit smoking, start working out, start being hard working and study regularly... 
...or more accurately, that's what we think before Monday.
And then it turns out it's just a regular day. Starting with coffee and a chocolate croissant straight from the bakery, spending limitless time on Facebook, smoking too much, and skipping the gym one more time.

Been there, done that. A thousand times.

But I tried challenging myself one last time. I saw this on Twitter and thought to myself: Why not?! Maybe it's exactly the thing I need right now. Maybe not, but I think it's worth trying.

This Monday I'll try to be happy. And keep the happiness for 100 days

Hyvää Ystävänpäivää!

I know I’m late!
I also know I am probably becoming boring by constantly emphasizing things I love about Finland, and luckily for me, the list seems to be expanding all the time. (But then again, not so luckily when I remember that I am actually leaving the country quite soon.) One of the things I liked not long ago was realizing how Finns perceive Valentine’s Day. I am one of those people who don’t really appreciate the date. I strongly believe it is a holiday invented to make malls happy, as well as candy and silly teddy bears manufacturers. I also believe that love should be cherished and praised every day, not once a year. And last but not least, I have been single for so long that I am a bit sceptical towards a holiday that celebrates love. Not my cup of tea, definitely.


Say Hello, Wave Goodbye

I’ve been blogging for only few months, but I already experienced writers’ block. Many times. Even though I love doing this and I try doing it for myself, thinking if I enjoy writing readers will also enjoy reading, sometimes I feel I am disappointing you guys for not blogging so often. The reason is simple – it’s either lack of time or inspiration! You successful bloggers out there, how do you manage to keep both?! You don’t have to comment in public, but send me an email instead and reveal your secret to a fellow baby blogger :)
Anyway, even though it’s February and I hope all of us stopped writing "2013" when stating the date, I still feel I should raise a glass to 2013. An incredible year it was!
