I know, I have been a lazy little blogger. Last post June 23rd. Embarrassing! Anyway, I will make a short reportage of our trip to Norway, which I have blogged about before. So as said, it was a camp for young adults with OI. I was there with my friend Noora, who you might remember from some previous posts.
The views were amazing. This is from the bridge to Tjøme. It is an island you see! And now here’s some pictures from the first night. You can see the night wasn’t exactly sober.
Then I have plenty of party pictures from other nights:
We had a shopping trip and a dinner in Tonsberg, which was so awesome. The food was gorgeous, I had steak and a beautiful chocolate fondant for dinner (pictures will follow).
Then we visited the Värdens ende, the Worlds end. A seagull shat on Noora’s head!
I didn’t want to publish all of my pictures because people might not want to be displayed on the internez. So if you are my facebook friend, you can find them in my Tjøme, Norway 2012-album. Might be that you can see those pictures anyway with that link. Don’t really care.
We didn’t have any assistants, so we were kind of travelling by ourselves. There was two other Finnish girls on the camp and we were all on the same flights. We mostly hung out with the awesome Norwegian boys! All in all, it was a great experience.
So, I was in Barcelona last week, I will try to post about it sooner than I posted about Norway. I’m so brown. Maybe I’ll do some Summer in Helsinki post too.
Oh yeah, and I got a job! I started today in Sentraali, a Finnish number service. So cool!
Okay, I was at Flow Festival 2011 in Helsinki this year 12.-14.8.. No wonder some call it the Fashion Week of Helsinki. You could really see the latest of the latest trends. My friend Eric is quite style conscious so he had to have something special everyday. I tried my best too, I really loved my first days outfit:
Electric swimsuit I bought from an online flea market last year. It says Dior but I highly doubt that. 🙂 The skirt is from Zara, I really really love it. It stays in shape as it is quite stiff. The shoes are from Dinsko’s children’s department. I get sometimes lucky, because nobody wants to see a 7-year old wearing too fierce shoes, so all the 32-sized shoes are in the FINAL SALE-shelf. Original price 40€ ->> 9,95€. Nice one, and real leather too. The necklace and matching bracelets are from H&M. They were really cool but kinda annoying because the feathers got tangled all the time and tickled me.
In the pic we are at Eric’s balcony. Here’s some pics:
AND, I learned how to do french braids. Through Youtube.
Fancy vest huh?
And some pics from the evening with all the lights:
I am making all the days separate posts. Unfortunately the last gig was Röyksopp which we both really like. We were about in the third row, so very close to the stage. The show was actually quite boring, everybody said so after-wards. There weren’t really any other favorites, so we travelled back and forth to Herttoniemi to drink some booze. Quite boring, I have to try to stay in the venue next year. Even though it might mean super expensive ciders.
After that, I headed to DTM, which had a foam party. Unfortunately my phone’s battery had long died so couldn’t get any pics from the Röyksopp or the foamy gays! 😦 At least I was already wearing the swimsuit…
We had a carpe diem trip again with Eric. We decided on Thursday that we will be going to Ruisrock, the oldest annual rock in Finland and the second oldest in Europe. We had a three day ticket. My favorites included Scandinavian Music Group, Robyn and Jenni Vartiainen. And pics follow. We were quite drunk the whole two days. On Sunday Henri was with us too.
Me! On the wheelchair platform on the first day! Watching something!
Eric watching The Hurts. HOT GUYS IN SUITS.
Scandinavian Music Group, my ultimate favorite! We were standing in the front row with Eric, my sister Beda and her friend Alina! Awesome gig. With Eric, we had bear masks made of the card board box of Karhu-beer.
My sister Beda, rocking on the front row!
Eric had both of his nipples pierced AND got a naval piercing as well. I got a nipple and a tragus. Both I have had before though.
We kinda drew attention…
Jenni Vartiainen’s gig was the first on Sunday, it was goddamn hot!
There’s Beda and Henri, sipping on some “juice”…
I am red like a lobster, nice taaaaan!
Noora, drinking some booozE!
I wish I had some pics of Robyns gig. It was uber! Also Kaija Koo was great!
Last Saturday I had my house warming party, combined with a small fiesta; my friend Henri returned from peacekeeping forces in Afganistan! The party went well, even though we forgot to buy the spirits for the punch. But, Kim went and bought some ciders, which we added to the punch. It worked quite well I think. Most of my closest friends in Helsinki were here and thank you all for making the party so glamourous! ❤ I love you guys.
My fridge is still full of drinks. Too bad, I can’t buy any food (maybe I’ll lose some weight…) until I have cleared some shelves. The after party was, traditionally, in Don’t Tell Mama. I am the fag hag of the village. I think we had a good time, though I really don’t remember the entire night. That is rather traditional too. Anyways, Henri was going to Aberdeen to sort things out as he is moving back there in the Autumn with his son and the mother-of-his-son Elina. Liam is such a cute kid, I was in his 1st birthday party few weeks ago.
Anyway Eric was going to come to stay at my place for the night and I thought we’d see Henri off to the airport with Eric. We had some more beer at the airport. What happened next was that Eric and I were left to the counter with Henri’s MasterCard and we bought ourselves tickets to Heathrow too. We were there about 15 minutes after Henri and we got seats next to him on the next flight to Aberdeen. Before that we had 5 hours time before the Aberdeen flight in the Heathrow Airport. We were a bit drunk the whole time. That Bloody Mary in the next picture was really good, I bought from Mark&Spencer ‘s. Unfortunately it ended up on outside my stomach at some point. Pics related:
Our friend Sandra lives in London so she came to see us on the airport. She didn’t believe we were really coming, until Eric called her just right before our flight took off in Helsinki and the speakers said “Ladies and Gentlemen, please close your seatbelts”. We had some wine in the plane with Eric. Surprise… Two HelloKitty’s on a plane to London. Great ideas come under the influence of alcohol. We called this the Carpe Diem -trip. No luggage to worry about, how convenient.
We arrived to Aberdeen in the afternoon and I finally saw the city I would be moving to in September. I applied to Aberdeen University through UCAS in the Christmas Holidays to study International Relations & Politics. The school is a big grey Harry Potter-castle. Surprisingly very wheelchair accessible too. A very cool city, though it was raining a lot and the seagulls screaming were a bit annoying.
I don’t like rain but I guess I will get used to it…
BECAUSE, when I got back home I had received mail from Aberdeen Uni, and they gave me a conditional offer, which means that I have to do a language test, IELTS or TOEFL. How boring. IELTS costs like 175euros. Well, I will do anything I guess. I think I’ll get enough points from either test. I also have to send them a copy of my lukio diploma.
I don’t know if my mom was too happy about me leaving to Scotland for probably the next 4 years, as she is always worrying about everything. Atleast I am finally going back to school. And a university too this time. I will get a degree!!! I would have a permanent job here in Finland at the moment though. And if I wanted to go back to school in Finland, I’d have a place in HAAGA-HELIA university of applied sciences to study BBA. But…
I want my future to be in IR.
And it is a hell of a job to get in to Helsinki University to study Political Sciences.
