I just don't wanna miss you tonight

Hello again. I'm surprised I ended here after only one day since my last post. Funny.

I'm still way too tired. And as it seems I won't get enough sleep tonight either. I guess we never learn. But, I had a nice day today. I saw a few friends, ate delicious homemade gingerbreads (not by me or anyone in my family, though), did schoolwork, prepared our trip to Dubai, dreamt of my Interrail-trip and watched a movie. Though I didn't have time to finish it.

You know, watching Love Actually is like one of the best Christmas traditions ever. It's just one of those movies you have to watch once a year, just before Christmas to get the feeling. Love Actually + chocolate = Perfection! Seriously. Better than anything.

Though I'm kind of sad 'cause I missed my chance to chat with my crush. I sent him a message but I thought he never answered. Actually he'd answered right away, but stupid Facebook-chat didn't work and I only noticed it half and hour later. By that time he'd left. Sucks.

Anyhow, tomorrow I get to sleep late since school starts late! Yay! I have to pack though, and read physics, but still. It's a late morning. Then it's school and work, home and sleep, school, work, and departure! Can't wait. This is going to be so cool!

Anyhow, see you. Probably after Christmas. Maybe next year. And I'm going to be an adult then!

I know I tend to get so insecure

Hey. A lot has happened. Well, actually, nothing has happened. I'm feeling really confused and weird right now.

I've been really busy with work for the past two weeks. I've had time for school and work and that's it. Not exactly something to jealous for. I've been stressing about all the things I should do and feeling I'm drowning in everything. And my life really isn't that bad.

It's just that I've got way too much work for school. We've got the final exams coming in March, and studying has already started... Hate it. And I haven't had time so I'm already falling behind. Yay. I've been really tired and feeling hungry all the time (though that's pretty normal for me...). I've also got my driver's license tests coming in two weeks. I should go to the bank and finish all school assignments before Tuesday. But then it's finally holidays! And we are heading to Dubai. That's all I'm looking forward for right now.
I've been feeling so tired. All I want to do is dream about my future (i.e. to figure out what I want to do!) and watch TV and do absolutely nothing at all. I watched an episode of Glee last week, and seriously, I almost cried. It was one of the best ones ever. Seriously. I wish I found that guy some day. I got over my teenage-crush. But still, whenever I hear that "bling" on Facebook I rush to see who sent a message. And smile goofily or get disappointed.

This is honestly one of the best romantic scenes in TV. Ever.


Anyhow, I think I'm going to bed now, as I haven't been sleeping quite enough lately. And I should've gone to bed quite a bit earlier in order to do that tonight.

P.S. Maroon 5 - She Will Be Loved. An oldie but a goodie. Been on repeat lately.

Straight through my heart, a single bullet got me

I need help. I feel like a thirteen-year-old. And that's somewhat pathetic, even for me. I have a huge crush on someone. Seriously. It's been a while since the last time. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that it's been a while since I've met new people. Now I have.

We were on this school trip on the Canary Islands (!!). Anyhow, I don't want to brag about the trip since all my friends are bitter about it, and I don't want to annoy people by telling what an amazing trip we had! So, there were ten people from our shool and ten from this other one: nine guys and one girl. And I can tell you the week there was one the best ones ever.


Sadly, it was only after the trip that I started to realise how wonderful this one guy was. But he lives 400 kilometres (around 250 miles) away. You know the feeling when you're sitting in front of your computer every night waiting for him to come online? Well, I suppose girls do. At least. Pathetic, yeah, tell me about it. I'm almost eighteen and I act like a thirteen-year-old teenager giggling everytime a guy walks past. Alright, maybe not that bad, but still.
I can't wait for the weekend when four of them come visit us. I've been dreaming every single possible incident that could happen while they're here. As if any of those would happen. But still. It's actually a somewhat nice feeling, having a crush on someone. Yeah, it might be silly, but it brightens up your day. So I'd say it's actually quite healthy. Haha. Really.


And the title: Backstreet Boys - Straight Through My Heart. And I don't care what you think about them. Cause they're the best! There's just something about the Backstreet Boys I've always liked.

P.S. It snowed yesterday! Just a little but it did! And yes, I am waiting for Christmas.

A silent kite against the blue, blue sky

Heello everyone!
It's been a while. More than a while. But I got some great news: I finally got my own computer! So I hope this means more posting in the future. If I have time. And something to write about. I'm planning on starting from a fresh table, but I'll continue in the same old address and so. So you'll find me when you want. Haha.

But yeah, I'll go now. Hope you'll here from me soon!
And the title: Nightwish - Storytime.

This is seriously awesome. (And not to mention, Finnish! Really, listen to it. There's just something.)

Baby you light up my world like nobody else

You know what's been annoying me lately. I'd like to go to different gymnastics exercise -thingies. You know, like BodyPump and spinning etc. But. Why do these always have to be arranged in the private sport centres, where you have to pay 700 euros a year to be a member and be allowed to go to the classes. Well, you can go as a non-member, but then it costs something like 20 € per class so no thanks. Seriously. Twenty euros!
I'm so tired with running. I can't wait for snow and winter so that I could go skiing! Cross-country just to let you know. But, it's October and still very warm. Like right now 7°C. Way to warm. I want to find a new and interesting sport, but can't figure out what it could be.

But, to somewhat happier things. Or not. I just realised I have a math exam tomorrow. But that's not what I meant. I meant, that I heard about this band yesterday. I know, they're not very new or anything, but doesn't matter. They're not that old anyways. I'm talking about One Direction. You know the boy band formed in the British X-Factor a while ago. Don't know exactly when. Last year I think.
But, I heard their "new" single yesterday. The song is not that great and unique. It's good though. I like the lyrics and it's catchy. Well, the lyrics are so typical and go over the top, just like always nowadays. I mean, yeah, I wouldn't mind if someone sang that to me, but. Why do the girls in the video have to be so beautiful and secure? If they're singing about insecure girls, then, for god's sake, use such girls in the video. It'd give much more credit. Now it's just another "oh you're perfect just the way you are"-song. It has potential for more. Argh.

But. The boys. I mean, seriously. My heart missed a beat when I was watching the video. Take a look:



The first guy, I think he's called Liam. He's 18. My age. My god how cute he is. And I love the way his voice goes in the part "what for". And the second curly head. Harry. He's younger than me. But. Just look at him. But my favourite, the blond guy. Niall. My age, too. Why does he get so little screen time? Well, waiting for they're album to come out. I think these guys could be my new "celebrity" crushes. Haha.

That's that for now. Guess you don't have to guess where the title's from.

I'm slowly getting closure, I guess it's really over

I had nothing else to say except that Harry Potter was awesome. It was so cool. Really worth watching! Good night!

And the title: Daughtry - Over You. And don't get it wrong, I'm not that big a Harry Potter -fan. I didn't cry at all. And I always cry. To me it all ended when the last book came out. Can you believe it really was four (!!!) years ago? But now I'm going.

Monday, 11 July 2011

That's more like it

Sorry it's been a while. And it's going to be a while. But it's summer and I have so much to do (which doesn't mean I'm actually doing anything). But I'll update when I have time!

But I just had to logon to brag about the Harry Potter premiere tomorrow. Well, for twenty minutes still the day after tomorrow but still. Simply can't wait! I know it's going to be incredible. But now I'll have to go prepare myself for tomorrow, the movie ends at 2.30 am... Crazy, huh?

But everyone enjoy your summer and have fun in the sun and so on. This is summer, or more like it at least. Haha.

And to go with the title (and the sneaky last reference...): Selena Gomez & The Scene - That's More Like It. It's really catchy you know. But listen to the song from Spotify or so, the Youtube-versions suck.

Young and sweet, only seventeen – having the time of your life

You know what? This time I have lots of stuff to tell you! Finally.

I've had a busy few days. We spent the midsummer in Åland, the island in the middle of Finland and Sweden. We had fun, we cycled and enjoyed the holiday. Though my bicycle tire (Or do you call it a tire in a bicycle? Well, anyway.) went empty when we were leaving and I had to walk my bike to the ferry. And when I got home I had to take the bus with the bike. Quite an experience.

On Monday I had to take my sisters bike to work as my parents were away and I didn't know how to fix my tire. But, as I was adjusting the bike I sort of broke a screw and the saddle didn't stay up anymore. Oops. Then I had to take my mum's bike.

Well on Tuesday we were fixing the tire all day, as it didn't turn out that easy. First we had the wrong kinds, then we tried to patch the tire, but it didn't work out either as I broke it again after five kilometers while biking to the city. I took pictures for my driver's license. Horrible ones. I seriously almost cried 'cause the picture is so bad…

After work, at around 9pm my brother called that the others (as in my mum, my dad and him) had gone kayaking and I should go too. And so we did, and it was so much fun! It really made my bad day. When we returned home my parents drove to the city centre to a grill kiosk and we bought this thing that has french fries and sausages, and then cucumber salad (you know?) and then mayonnaise and such stuff. It's so good. There are just no words.

Well today we were again fixing my bike, and in the end when I came back from work I noticed now my front tire is empty. Just my luck. Well, but today I went swimming and then to a picnic with a friend. I also burned (again!) but tanned too. Now I have stupid tan borders (I don't know, again, whether that's what they're called, but you get the idea) though. But I'm not complaining as long as the weather stays like this.

But now I have to go, I have to make a card to a friend of mine who's turning eighteen. Yay.

A random picture but I love the Finnish archipelago.
And the title, as life really feels good now: ABBA - Dancing Queen

I'm so excited and I just can't hide it

Hi. I'm so excited. Haha.

I bought the Harry Potter -premiere tickets today! Yay. I'm not really that crazy about Harry Potter but for once in my life I wanted  to do something stupid (and yes, I do reckon going to the movies at midnight is slightly stupid). And well, how many chances I have left to go to a Harry Potter -premiere?

Also, it's midsummer this weekend. Well not exactly, but I believe that's what it's called. And I'm going with a friend of mine and some of her friends to Åland, the big island between Finland and Sweden, just so you know. I can't wait.

That's pretty much it for now!

Bonfires, yay.
And the title, as if you didn't know: The Pointer Sisters - I'm So Excited.

How can we dance when our Earth is turning

I've got a huge problem. I reserved tickets to the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows premiere!!!! Haha!

But, the server had problems during the day and I didn't get the seats I wanted to, and now I ended up having five different reservations to both 2D and 3D-shows, and I can't choose between two different seats in the 2D-show or three different seats in the 3D-show: a big hall (or whatever it's called, can't be bothered thinking at this hour) or a small hall? How does 3D-look like in a small hall. I'd prefer a 2D-show though.

Anyhow, these are my big problems. The title: Midnight Oil - Beds Are Burning. It's supposed to explain how I'm excited and can't concentrate on anything. But it really doesn't. But who cares.

You look like you're lots of fun

Hello again. Once again, I won't have much to say.

I just pulled an all-nighter the other day night. It was fun. We had this big competition thing which went over night and we stayed up all night following it. It was cool: it wasn't raining and not too cold! It was darkish (or close) only for an hour or so around two, and then the day began lightening up. I love the summer here as it is barely dark at all. It's definitely something worth experiencing.

So on Sunday I went to sleep at 7.10, slept badly for about three hours, then we left home and "slept" for ten minutes in the car. I can never sleep in the car, which is pretty annoying. Soon I'm off to work, can't wait for the rainy weather to end so I can do something.

I've been dreaming about an InterRail all summer, I'm actually planning on going next spring. Can't remember whether I've written about that before. I've been staring at maps and reading books of where I want to go. I've planned to start from Portugal, then head to Madrid. I'm not really that much into big cities but you'll get the idea of where I want to go. After Madrid I'd like to head to the eastern coast, catch a ferry to Ibiza (just a quick stay) and then a ferry to Barcelona. From Barcelona I'd head, following the coast line, to Monaco. I'd also like to visit Lake Garda in Italy, and then via Austria to Prague, then through Germany, Denmark and Sweden back home.

Anyhow, I gotta rush now so. I'll be writing again soon, hopefully with something to actually write about.

Here's a random video, but the song's so cool. It's so 80's and lifts your spirits. Try.



Yeah, and the title: Dead Or Alive - You Spin Me round (Like A Record). Another 80's song. But still. The video is hilarious.

California here we come

You wish. No, I wish.

Hey. Nothing much up here. The weather has been bad and I have nothing to do. So I've been watching TV. Season 3 of Gossip Girl started on Sunday, and the re-runs of O.C. on Tuesday. So that's pretty much it.

Yesterday I had an idea what to write about but now I don't remember it. So. A few pictures instead.












I want to go somewhere. Seriously.

And the title:

Maybe it's all around to see if we try

Hello again! It's summer and I have nothing to do. I'd love to go traveling and so but I have to work. Though my work only starts at 5 pm so I have the days time to do whatever I want but I can't really go anywhere. Besides, I've already manages to burn my back, lips, nose, and now my thighs and legs. Yeehaa.

Anyhow, I has nothing much to say (as always) and I just wanted to share this. The third season is starting tomorrow (!! finally) and this came out today. It's probably one of my favourite scenes ever, and believe me, I have seen a lot of romantic comedies.


And as Blogger ruined to quality I'll link the video too here.

That's all I have now. See ya all!
P.S. The title: Shiny Toy Guns - Season Of Love. What did you think?

Wednesday, 8 June 2011

Look at you tonight, so beautiful under these neon lights

Questions... I'm bored.

If you could live in any home on a television series, what would it be?
Ahh, I really don't know. No, I do. As lame as it sounds I'd switch houses with Hannah Montana anytime. I love the house!


What's the longest you've gone without sleep?
I can't say exactly, little over 24 hours I'd guess.

What's the habit you're proudest of breaking?
Not stressing about school anymore. I'm so proud I've managed to get my mind in state that I don't care anymore. And it doesn't mean my grades are any worse than before.

What's your favorite website?
Again, as lame as it is, I have to go with Facebook. I don't use it that much and never talk to anyone there and it never works properly but still.

What's the best bargain you've ever found at a garage sale or thrift store?
A few times I've found shirts with original price of 30 € for 5 €. I'd say those.

Where were you on September 11, 2001?
At school. I was only seven at the time and I remember my dad coming home and switching on TV saying I heard this from the radio. I didn't exactly get it at the time and it didn't really affect me in any way.

If you had to be named after one of the 50 states, which would it be?
Texas. It sounds so cool.


If you could travel anywhere in Africa, where would it be?
Anywhere. I'd like to go to South Africa.

Have you ever been stung by a bee?
No, actually I haven't. Lucky me.

What's your favorite form of exercise?
Varies from time to time. When I haven't done something in a while it feels good but soon I'll get bored again.

Are you afaid of heights?
I used to be, but I'm over it. Not completely, but I'm not that afraid anymore.

Have you ever taken dance lessons?
I've done folk dancing. Haha. But it was actually quite fun. The team spirit is really great.


If you could go to Disney World with any celebrity alive today, who would it be?
Aah, I don't know. Taylor Lautner.

Do you prefer baths or showers?
People don't really bathe here. So yeah, showers.

What's your favorite breakfast food?
Pretty much anything goes.

If you could have a super power, what would it be?
I've been wondering this from time to time. It's really hard to decide. But I've ended up that if magic counts as a super power that'd be it, as you can do pretty much anything with it. But if not, then I'd have to probably say teleporting.


Name five songs to which you know all the lyrics. (Better yet, sing them.)
There are many. I have a good memory.

What's the longest you've ever waited in line?
For around a few hours, like in amusement parks.

Have you ever taken a picture in one of those little booths?
No I haven't. I really, really want to though.

What does your name mean?
Means "wisdom" in Greek, according to this.
Uses "both eyes to see" the world and a wifey type that can make a man satisfied. Cook good, look good and feels good, according to the Urban Dictionary. So yeah.

How old are you? How old do you wish you were and why?
17. I want to be 18 so I could do more stuff. Wouldn't always have to miss everything for not being of age.

Where are you now?
On the computer, surprise surprise.

Do you like it where you live?
Yes, in fact I do.

What is your natural hair color?
Blonde.

What color is it now?
Slightly blonder due to the sun. Haven't dyed it.

If you could have any color of hair in the world, what would it be?
Red. I love naturally red hair.

Biggest crush ever?
Well certain occasions. I remember once, five years ago I had this huge crush on a guy three years older than me. I used to stalk him in school to use every chance I had to get near him. Now I just laugh at it. I was so young and stupid. Haha. But I've had crushes, some of them have lasted for a long time.

Are you teacher's pet?
No. I'm good at school (I'm not bragging but I'm not going to pretend I'm not) but I never participate in class or anything. So I'd say no.

Are you popular?
Not really. I don't know anyone who's actually popular.

How would you describe yourself?
Difficult. I'm a dreamer but never do anything to achieve my dreams. I'm a romantic but not on the outside. I just dream about romantic dates and so but in reality I don't know if I'd really enjoy them. I want to be cooperative but in fact I just want to do things my way. I want to be independent but I always ask for advice. And I'm not going to continue, I suppose you got the point.

Are you shy?
Sort of yes but no. Like I said, I'm complicated.

Are you paranoid?
Yes? And no.

Do you like to party?
Not really.

Do you like to be alone?
Yup, I enjoy spending time all by myself. Really. No irony there.

Do you believe in God? Anything else?
Nope. But I like to believe there's a bigger power guiding us, and everything happens for a reason. Classic, I know, but it's true.

Yet another random pic but I love sunflowers. They're pretty.

I don't know what to say

This is going to be, for a change, a post in which I actually have something to say. Nothing important, but anyhow.

There's this one thing that has been annoying me lately. You know when people girls upload photos of them in Facebook (or wherever) and everyone always has to comment "omg you look se pretty<3<3<3<3<33<3<3<3" and then they have to comment back "no i don't i look like shit you're the one who's pretty". That's actually two things.

Why do people always have to write the youaresopretty-comments to each other? I mean, yeah, when someone actually  has a nice photo you can comment if you have something to say. But I'd think it'd get sort of annoying when someone gets like a hundred comments to their picture from their friends. It's just so pretentious. People comment when they want to pretend to be "good" friends. Maybe not always but generally that's the case.

But what annoys me even more is the people who answer back that "no i don't you're just saying i'm ugly". Oh yeah right. If you think you look ugly in the picture then why the hell did you upload it. It's just so hypocrite. All they want is more people commenting that they're pretty. And that's when you end up with dozens of comments. All it'd take is a simple "thank you".

It's random, yeah, I know.

But enough of this. I started working today, was fun. There was this other girl too who started to day and she was even more lost than I was. Quite an achievement. But it was good to have someone else to be lost too so I didn't feel so stupid repeating the same questions over and over and over again. Besides the guy who was instructing us (and will be for the whole week) was good-looking. A few (or more) years older than us, I'd say maybe twenty-two (EDIT: He actually is twenty-two, he said that today) or something and probably gay. I don't know but you know he seemed to talk only to girls and dresses well and sounds like gay. I don't exactly know how you can define someone sounds gay but, well, he just sounds.

I work so you can get your pretty letters. Haha.

That's all for now I guess. My grandparents are staying over cause my parents are visiting St Petersburg. It's really sort of frustrating. Grandma is just stressing about everything and I can't go anywhere cause I have to help her here and to stuff with them and blah. And it's only been one day. Well, three more and then I'm as free as a bird and will have that two months of freedom I've been waiting for.

Now I'll head to bed, continue my book and eat some chocolate. I missed the Gossip Girl -episode today. Sniff. But the third season is off next week. I also consider starting to watch O.C. which I've never watched but the re-runs begin next week too.

But now I'm going. The title: Taylor Swift - The Story Of Us

P.S. They've started selling Starbucks chilled coffees over here. I've only had time to taste Seattle Latte. And I don't like coffee, but I liked it. Maybe I'm growing up. Haha.
EDIT: Now I've also tasted Aztlan Mocha Latte Chocolate Flavour. Not that good.


My other project over the summer is to taste all the Ben & Jerry's flavours we have here. The range is not nearly as big as on the other side but still. We have, what, 14 flavours according to the Finnish webpage, quite a bit smaller than your over 60 or so.


And can you believe we only got Vitaminwater here only this year? Not that I'm that interested on them. But still. Now I'm really going.

Vamos a la Playa

Hola! It's summer, finally.

School ended on Saturday and now we've got two and a half months of freedom. Jealous? Thought so. I start working tomorrow. Nothing more now.

I'm going to go enjoy my holiday in the sun. And the weather forecast for the week. Almost 30°C (86°F). Haha.

And the title: Righeira - Vamos a la Playa (that video is definitely worth watching). Or whichever artist you prefer.

Don't say you love me

Aloha people!

I've been busy with school, having the last exams and summer holiday starting on Saturday. Can't wait.

I haven't really been up to much lately. Had this camp thing over the weekend, was pretty lame though. It's been raining quite a lot lately, but the weather's getting better now.

There's this one thing I've been meaning to post about for a long time, but for some reason never have. Have you people ever thought about "I love you" properly?

I've noticed, that it's much easier to say "I love you" in English than in Finnish. Even though I'd say my English is pretty fluent, things don't mean the same than they do with my mother tongue. Everything is so much less meaningful: swearing, expressing feelings. When speaking another language one easily exaggerates.

To me "I love you" is something really big and meaningful. I don't think I've ever said that to anyone. Maybe my mum when I was small. It's just not our thing to say it. In movies you hear people telling each other they love them all the time. The meaning has been lost. They say it to someone even though they don't even know the other person that well.

For me it'd take a long time before I'd have the courage to tell someone I loved them. I'd need to absolutely trust the other person and have a deep relationship before I'd be ready. "I love you" is not something to say to whoever. It's something really important, and I don't want it to lose its meaning.

There's one good example (or well, maybe not that good if you look at the whole story but let's just concentrate on this one detail) in Gossip Girl. You know on season two Chuck and Blair struggle saying "I love you" to each other. That's sort of the way it's supposed to be. "I love you" shouldn't be something you tell everyone. And I'm repeating myself.

But just think of it. Imagine saying "I love you" in English or whatever language you want and then in your mother tongue. There's a difference. At least to me. Your own language is much more meaningful. Try. I can repeat "I love you" much more easily than "Minä rakastan sinua". That's Finnish (for your information).

Anyhow, I gotta get going now. It's summer soon. Aloha!

I got me a bouncy feeling

Back in business! Had a busy week last week.

On Thursday we left to a sort of a camp, we had a competition on Saturday and it was far away so we left early. We had so much fun. It was so relaxing, we didn't have too much to do and not too much people which suited me so well.

On Friday we visited Koli quickly, and what can I say, the view was incredible. Just check it out yourselves.



I was beautiful. On Saturday we had the competition. It wasn't that great but still. The forest was so cool. In the evening we cooked chicken wok with the girls. It was so good, like the best food I've ever cooked. I haven't cooked too much food though.

On Sunday it was time to pack and return home. The bus ride was l-o-n-g (we left at 9 am and were home at 9 pm). We watched Sound Of Music (love it, Julie Andrews is awesome!). It just makes you so cheerful, such a lovely movie. The we played card and such. The bus was so hot, it was like a sauna. It was such a beautiful day, it was a shame to sit in the bus but no can do.

I lost my voice over the weekend, but now it's returning. I suppose that's all I had to say this time. It's raining today, but it's so green outside! Exams start on Wednesday and there's two weeks school left! Then it's SUMMER.

And I just had to title the post with this:



I just love it. The Finnish version is better though. The video is for the Finnish song so it's sort of dubbed, that's why the lyrics don't match with what the dude is saying. It's from this sketch show, and he's making the voice really. It's not edited. My favourite part:

I got me a bouncy feeling,
don't throw me to the ceiling and
turn me into a modern painting.

Some may say I look just like an fat 'n bouncy ping pong ball!

This is what dreams are made of

Thought it'd be about time to continue my challenge.

Day 11 – Your dreams

Well, to be honest there are many. Shallow ones and less shallow ones. Right now my biggest dream is traveling. I want to travel around the world and see all the different places. I know, not so unique, but it is what I dream about. A year backpacking abroad – yes please!

I have decided (well, decided and decided, but strongly committed to anyway) to go to an InterRail next year. I've been reading all these books and everything, and it's something I could actually afford. I mean, if I won in the lottery or so I'd take a gap year and take a round-the-world trip. For sure.

So traveling is pretty much the be-all and end-all (just learned that today and had to use it here) for me. And I am going on an InterRail next year after school's over.

Apart from traveling there are many other things I dream about. I want to have a summer romance, be in a proper relationship, get an own computer, find something I want to study when I go to university, turn 18 and drive a car, find a lovely apartment (and preferably a cheap one), get a good job, travel (again), study a year abroad as an exchange student (in university), visit the South Pole, visit Africa, have a family, live in a beautiful place near the city...

The list is endless, and I'm going to kill you if I'd start listing everything up. There are so many things I'd want to do (probably the same with everyone). Some of my dreams are shallow and silly and just dreams and fantasies that are fun to play with (such as meeting Taylor Lautner near my house and become friends (or more) with him and then he'd buy all this stuff for me and pay for an extreme makeover (or not so extreme, but well you know) and clothes and tips how to do this and that to look better (in an easy way)). Then some of them are not so shallow as I really want to fulfill them. Like the traveling part. It's number one on my list.

Places I'd really like to visit some day:

  • South Africa, and then maybe some other African countries, to see what living there is actually like
  • Egypt, to see the pyramids
  • Greece to see the temples and other things
  • Southern France
  • UK and Ireland, Scotland (Loch Ness!), London
  • Spain and Portugal as I never been there and really want to go
  • Australia and New Zealand, the Great Barrier Reef and the Pacific islands
  • South Pole
  • Niagara Falls, Grand Canyon, New Work, Los Angeles (Hollywood!), Las Vegas, Yellowstone, .......... (I want to take a road trip across the States and visit like all of the states (Texas!))
  • Tokyo, India (Taj Mahal), China (Beijing and the Great Wall)
  • South American rainforests, Brazil, Mexico
So, there are a few.











Sorry about the title. But I just had to. And the song reminds of my childhood. So forgive me.

Say "I am wonderful"

I have to share this. I absolutely fell in love with this song while watching Eurovision, and so did probably many, many others. I've heard it before but never actually realised what a great song it is.
Just listen to the lyrics. Absolutely beautiful.


The person that you were has died
You’ve lost the sparkle in your eyes
You fell for life - into its traps
Now you wanna bridge the gaps
Now you wanna bridge the gaps
Now you want that person back

And all your ammunition’s gone
Run out of fuel to carry on
You don’t know what you wanna do
You’ve got no pull to pull you through

Say “I am”
Say “I am”
Say “I am wonderful"

Say “I am”
Say “I am”
Say “I am wonderful"

If what you’ve lost cannot be found
And the weight of the world weighs you down
No longer with the will to fly
You stop to let it pass you by
Don’t stop to let it pass you by
You’ve gotta look yourself in the eye

Say “I am”
Say “I am”
Say “I am wonderful”
Oh you are

Say “I am”
Say “I am”
Say “I am wonderful”

'Cause we are all miracles
wrapped up in chemicals
We are incredible
Don’t take it for granted, no
We are all miracles
Oh we are

Say “I am”
Say “I am”
Say “I am wonderful”
Oh you are

Don’t take it for granted, no
We are all miracles
wrapped up, yeah we’re wrapped up
Oh we are wonderful



Oh well. The title: Gary Go - Wonderful.

P.S. There's the ice hockey championships final going on. Finland vs. Sweden, like the dream game ever. Too bad I'm not into hockey. Never have been. I'm thinking about going to break my principles and go watch. I don't know.

We are the winners of Eurovision

So, about Eurovision.

EDIT: Azerbaijan excuse me?????????? Not quite what I expected. Not at all. And Italy? Completely different to what I thought it'd be. Just saying. Europe, you are weird. Haha. Not seriously.

Here we go, I just have to post this.

01 Finland: I'm not biased (not at all!) but Finland just has a good song. I really like it. And, once again, Axel Ehnström (aka Paradise Oskar) is just irresistible with that smile of his.

02 Bosnia & Herzegovina: One word: boooooring. Just nothing.

03 Denmark: Like the song, but it's just all the same.

04 Lithuania: Boring too. Says nothing.

05 Hungary: Catchy song, but yet again: it's all the same. Lyrics are kinda boring, "What about my life" all over again. But it's okay.

06 Ireland: Funny, and I love Jedward. They're hilarious. And the choreography and the outfits were cool. But the song's not that great.

07 Sweden: The song's good and all, but the lyrics? And I don't get why it's such a favourite, it's so basic and nothing new. And what's with the glove? It reminds me of Hannah Montana... Haha. But Eric Saade is without doubt the best-looking singer this year. Maybe ever.

EDIT: If he didn't date, I'd get in touch with him immediately. Lucky Molly. I bet she's one of the most envied girls in Sweden.





08 Estonia: Getting better everytime I hear it. Not that bad anymore. Though the singer looked like a barbie doll.

09 Greece: There are absolutely no words. Terrible, I didn't like it at all. Couldn't wait for the song to end.

10 Russia: The beginning was lame with the saint Russia whatever. The singer was cute though for a Russian, and the rest of the song was okay. But, once again, as with so (too) many of the songs: so basic.

11 France: No thanks. Booooooooooooooooooooring. And the guy needs a haircut.

12 Italy: Didn't even remember this one. Another such a boring one.

13 Switzerland: Like the energy and the singer. It's such a happy song. Definitely one of the best ones here.

14 United Kingdom: Favourite? Why, may I ask? It's Backstreet Boys all over again, we saw this like, what, 15 years ago.

15 Moldova: Excuse me? I just didn't get it. It's like garden gnomes shouting.

16 Germany: Creepy. Another song that gets better when you hear it many times. But still, I don't know. It was scary.

17 Romania: Couldn't remember this one either. That probably says it all. It's ok.

18 Austria: Didn't really fancy this one either. Boring, too.

19 Azerbaijan: Another one I have nothing to say about. Boring.

20 Slovenia: The boots. That's all. The song's ok, again.

21 Iceland: I liked this one. Not that much, but it was better than most of the songs. It was another so called "happy song".

22 Spain: Oh please. This sounded like straight from the Junior Eurovision thing. I mean listen to the lyrics. She's supposed to be grown up.

23 Ukraine: Loved the sand artist on the background. Amazing talent. The song was shadowed by it, but it wasn't that bad.

24 Serbia: I liked this one. It's different and happy. Good one from Serbia.

25 Georgia: Like Evanescence. Boring, yet again.

My favourites are Finland and Serbia. Those are the ones I remember the best. But let's see.

And the title, just had to: LT United - We Are The Winners.

Today was a fairytale

Haudi!

Today has been and will be pretty much a perfect day. Love it.

First me and my mum went out for nordic walking, and despite the rain it was lovely. It has been so dry here recently that a little rain won't hurt, vice versa.

Then we went to this student restaurant and ate lunch, it was cheap and neither of could bother making any food home so. Then we went to the store and bought everything to keep us alive tonight (Eurovision!). Chips, drinks, ice cream etc. Can't wait.

Now I've been chilling a while, a friend of mine is coming over and we're gonna watch TV for a while (it's this  sports thing) and then go eat to some restaurant (again!). Can't wait that either.

I'm going to keep you updated how it's going.

Light a match under my paper heart

Hey. It's been a while. Once again. Surprise surprise. We had a wonderful weekend in Estonia. The weather was beautiful and we had fun and life's good.

I watched the Fast Five today. You know the newest The Fast And The Furious film. It was so awesome! Though I haven't seen all the previous ones (I've seen the third one, I think), but it was great anyhow. Loved it.

I also watched Erin Brockovich yesterday. Loved it too. I can't help it but Julia Roberts definitely is one of the best actresses of all time. She's great.

Didn't have much else to say. No wait, actually I did. It's Eurovision tomorrow! I actually think that our song Da Da Dam is quite good. Not to mention that Axel Ehnström (alias Paradise Oskar (okay, maybe the other way around...)) is p-r-e-t-t-y cute.



What I'm slightly sad of is that Latvia didn't make it to the finals. The song was really catchy, I likes it a lot. The lyrics were a little, umm, well you know, but otherwise. And to be honest you can't really hear that well what they're singing about, not the best articulation in the world. But still.



One thing I'm really surprised of is that Sweden is such a big favourite. I mean, their song's catchy and all, but it's just all the same as everything nowadays. Basic. Same with UK. Ireland's funny, love Jedward.

And one thing still. I thought we'd finally get the third season of Gossip Girl. But no. They're only showing the second one again.

But anyhow, gotta rush now. And the title: Tyler Ward - Paper Heart. Love him also.

Live your life and stay young on the floor

Hello. I'm going to Estonia tomorrow. Can't wait!

Enjoy your lives.

Tallinn

Tartu

Random. Haha.

P.S. The title: Jennifer Lopez feat. Pitbull - On The Floor. As if you didn't know.
P.P.S. I don't really like that song. It's just so similar to all the other songs nowadays.

There's more to life than just ...

Hey. It's Vappu this weekend. It's a festival (for those of you who didn't know). And I'm going to Sweden, there's a big competition this weekend.

I don't know why, but I hate it when people have shout out loud that they're going to party. I mean, there's more to life than just partying. And I just don't understand why does it all have to be about drinking and getting drunk. I never have understood it. It makes me feel like there's something wrong with me because I'm not that into it. And people treat you like you're mental unless you don't drink. I just can't explain it.

I just feel I'm missing out something, because people don't want sober people to hang around. Why? How does it bother them? I'd like someone to explain. Thankfully I have friends who agree with me and prefer hanging out without alcoholic beverages. And besides, now that everyone is turning 18 and I'm not, they're just going go to the disco where I can't go due to my age. Fun.

Anyhow, I'm going to enjoy the trip and beautiful (hope so!) weather. Everyone have a nice weekend, I'm off to Sweden! And the title: Jonas Brothers - Hold On.

I’m no beauty queen, I’m just beautiful me

Hey people. It's been a while. Again.

Recently I've occasionally felt really empty. One of the reasons is that everyone – and I mean everyone – is turning eighteen. And, well, guess twice who is not. I hate being born in the end of the year. Imagine being born between Christmas and New Year. Most people are born between New Year and Christmas. Well, I'm not.

I've been trying to prepare myself to this year for a long time. This is the year when everyone in my class, most of my friends, everyone is turning eighteen. It's not like I'm one of those people who like to get drunk and wasted, but still. I want to drive a car, don't want to read from every single job ad that we want our workers to be over eighteen. Screw regulations.

I just feel like I'm missing out of something. Everyone else is getting their driving licenses. I'm not. Everyone else is going to a club just enjoy and have fun because they're allowed to go there. I'm not. I mean, how am I different to the others? Why can't the regulations be like everyone born this year or something. That everyone born in 1993 would get the rights to do things at the same time. I'm just as mature as other people in my class. So why can't I drive?

It just really, really bugs me. It doesn't feel fair. I feel like a kid with everyone else. They don't have to ask for rides everywhere. They can go to the supermarket and buy a beer if they feel like it. It's just not fair.

Besides, I feel like my life is so lame anyways. I never do anything, don't go out with my friends. Maybe because I can't because I'm NOT eighteen. I still have to wait, what, eight months and five days. I feel like my life doesn't have a purpose right now. It's just basic school stuff. Graduation is next year, then I want to move to a place of my own and start living my own life. Right now I feel like my parents guard everything I do. On summer though I have at least a week that I can stay home alone, I want to do something wild. To feel alive.

Another thing might be the fact that I just watched the movie Never Been Kissed. It reminded me so much of myself. I've never had a boyfriend or a relationship and never kissed anyone. I'm not bullied or anything but still. I'm seventeen. Sometimes I feel like I want my life to change. Something new to happen.

But enough of angst now. It's spring and the weather's absolutely beautiful. It's all these stupid movies in which everything is possible and miracles happen and everything that make my life feel so worthless. Guess miracles don't happen in real life. Anyhow, this post sounds much more depressing than I mean. I just can't do anything without exaggeration.

So, to sum up, I am pretty happy with my life. And the title: Selena Gomez & The Scene - Who Says



I love it. The lyrics speak to me. Not in the way that someone's mean to me and bullies me, but in the way that you make your life perfect if you want it to be so. And I love the video.

I wouldn't want to be anybody else.
I’m no beauty queen, I’m just beautiful me.
You’ve got every right to a beautiful life.
Who says you’re not perfect, who says you’re not worth it?
Who says you’re not pretty, who says you’re not beautiful?

Here's a couple of pictures (weheartit.com) that I felt like sharing.






P.S. I. Want. To. Travel.
