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.

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?

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?

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.
