new things in new surroundings

I'm right now sitting on a train on my way back to Helsinki and I should be studying, so of course I figured that now would be the perfect time to "restart my blog" haha. I've been living in Helsinki for about a month now and these next pictures are from that period :)

from a weekend when I travelled back home to celebrate my grandma's 75th birthday

Helsinki University Opening Carnival on the 31st of August

i spent the first few days in my new apartment living from a suitcase and sleeping on a mattress before my parents brought me my furniture from home #minimalism

i started to make coffee and when it was ready i realized i hadn't bought any milk, so I quickly went and bought some. Then, when i was ready to start drinking my coffee i realized i hadn't bought any cups (and i didn't have any of my dishes yet) so i grabbed a plastic cup from my room mate's cabinet. Worked just fine :D

first proper meal in my new apartment (of course i wasn't the one who did the cooking cause i'm a lazy ass).

it's pretty great that the lectures don't usually start until noon, but it also means that every evening i plan how i will get up early next morning and study my ass off, but then every morning i wake up an hour before the lesson begins and i hurry my ass off just to make it in time to the university.. :D

this past month has included more partying than any other month in my life. And I've come to notice that many times the next morning, heh.. :D

I visited Turku last weekend and I was happy to notice that it actually looked like a fall there (unlike in the centre of Helsinki :D)

And this weekend I visited my home where I took some nature pictures. Today before heading to the train station we had coffee at my grandma's place, yummyyy.

Let's see if I'll start updating this blog more often from now on. That is the plan at least ;)

long time no see

Happy June everyone! Apparently it has been over three months since i last posted, oops :D I feel like many things have happened, and at the same time like nothing much happened since I've basically been studying ever since January to last week; first for the matriculation examinations and after that for the uni entrance exam. I'll write a quick summary of these past three months at the end of this post, but first, let me take a selfie some pictures:

During these past three months, I have..

..passed my matriculation examinations.
.. reached a decision of where to apply for next year.
.. studied and avoided studying.
.. made two trips to Helsinki, two trips to Turku and one trip to Tampere :''D
.. gotten a new camera, which I am - needless to say - very happy about.
.. celebrated May day with my friends and Easter with family friends.
.. struggled with the search of a dress for my graduation.
.. taken my entrance exams (and now i'll have to wait for the results until July, ugh).
.. graduated from upper secondary school and had a great day celebrating it with friends and relatives 
.. all in all, been very happy! I feel like it has been one of the best periods in my life, which is weird because it has mostly consisted just studying. I guess it's because of the freedom of not being at school anymore and not being surrounded by the same people every day #introvert :D

That's all that comes to my mind for now! Today is my first official day of summer vacation, and it's probably the first time that I haven't really thought about summer as much as the next fall. The thing I'm looking forward the most atm is hearing the results of the entrance exam, even though I try my best not to think about it :D Anyway, I think it's gonna be a great summer filled with friends, work, relaxing and hopefully with some traveling and music festivals. Hope you will all have a great one too!
