Hey everyone! It´s been a while ago. I´m back in Finland and everything is like it was when I left from here. Any ways.. I did create a new blog since this blog was about my year in the US as an Au Pair. You can follow me and my Finnish life here:

Now I'm back home in Finland! I've been here one week but it feels more like one year haha!
I went to a scout camp right after I came home. I did sownd 8 days in a forest in south of Finland with 17 000 other scouts from 45 diffrent countires. After the camp I've just been chilling and meeting up with some friends.
My Au Pair year did finish. I'm official done working as an Au Pair. It's sad but I'm so excited for traveling. I can tell you more details when I have time!
I'm now in California, traveling with my host family! Then after 1 week I'll be back in Salt Lake City and spend 2 last days there and then it's time to go back home to Finland. Right now I'm crying when I'm thinking of that. But I'll guess it will be fine..
I guess I was the only Au Pair in my group that where working on July 4th. But I did not mind working since it´s my last week of working. And vaccation is waiting for me ♥
After I finished working Meggi and I went over to Tiinas house to get redy. And then out to celebrate 4th!
I just love my crazy friend Tiina! We made a roadtrip Meggie to Great Salt Lake to an artwork called Spiral Jetty. After that we did go to an Midsummer event. Then home and get drunk ;) After that out to the bars haha! And after the bar we ended up on a biking tour in down town SLC.
-Yes! The water is actually Pink!
-My cuties! ♥ Tiina, Hailee & Jaron.
I´m like the worst blogger ever. But seriously I have no time to blog now when I just have 1 more week of working and then I´ll be traveling and then back to Finland. I spend all my days with my host kids doing fun stuff and in the evening when we are done eating dinner I´m just so tired and want to sleep or watch some movies. And if I have extra energy I rather go out with my friends than sit home writing a blog post.
But any ways.. No I have all the time in the world, litterly! I´m laying in my bed at HOME. On a Saturday. Can you imagine me sitting home on a SATURDAY?! Yeah.. NO! NO WAY! I´m always out doing something. My best friend Tiina, she is always joking around that I live in my car haha. Cuz I always have extra backup with clothes etc. so she thinks that´s so funny. But yeah. I´m home. So today I´m home in my bed dying because of my throat and because I´m bored. I´ve watched 1 movie, started watching few episodes of a tv show and few you tube clips. But guess what? It´s 2:30 pm and I just want to go out and have fun with my friends the last weekend before traveling BUT NO I HAVE TO STAY HOME BEING SICK! Yeah and I forgot to tell but I´m on my secound round of antibiotics.
-Everyone who is bored (as me) you have to watch "Me before you" gaash I cried!
I'm so chocked that I don't even know if I should cry, laugh, scream or be happy. I mean one year ago I could not even think of how my year in the US would look like. I couldn't even imagine how many wonderful people I'm now more than happy to call my friends I would meet and get to know.
I can just say that right now I'm sad. I feel really sad to leave my life I did build up here, all alone.
In Finland we have this celebration called Midsummer. It's kinda a way of telling that the summer is half way done.
Any ways. This weekend I moved in to Tiinas house. Haha. So we are going to celebrate midsummer more like the proper way tomorrow. But still, Happy Midsummer peepz!
So this morning I woke up (feeling like I´m totally alive!!) around 10-10:30 am. I skipped the Au Pair meeting since I did not really feel like go to a hike 8 in the morning after spending 3 days in bed. So I woke up and made some breakfast. It´s the first morning in like for ever I did make my self breakfast so I was happy. I checked Instagram, Facebook etc. I was thinking about doing something today.. but I didn´t haha! I talked to my sister then to my friend and then to them both while I for some reason started packing my stuff from my room. So now my, first and only, bag is full with stuff I don´t really need right now and the rest stuff, that´s left, is going to a bag I´m buying from here when ever I´ll find the time for it. Any ways I packed my stuff and realized that I´m never even going to fit all this stuff lol. And in few weeks I´m going to be back in Finland and look back at this blogpost laughing at my self and my stupidity.
-TB to when I was more alive than during these days! haah
It's nothing more so stressfull than being sick! On Wednesday evening I went to bet before 9 pm (even before my hostkids) cuz I wasn't feeling that good! On Thursday morning I woke up and I was feeling like crap. I texted my host mom and said I'm not feeling good at all. I slept the entire day until the evening when I decided to go out to the front yard to see what my host dad and one of the kids where up too. I asked him to check my throught sience it was hurting like hell. He said that I have "Strep trought". And gave me some medicine and said that I will get some Antibiotics tomorrow. I went to bed. I was freezing. I was way too hot. Freezing again. And over and over again the whole night. I couldn't go up from my bed this morning cuz my whole body was hurting and shaking. I got my Antibiotics and took a shower and went back to bed. Slept for few hours and now I feel a little bit better but still I'm not feeling good at all. And to spend a Friday home(?!) being sick sucks!
Tomorrow we have our Au Pair meeting and in the evening Tiina and I are going for the black light run! So I really really hope this Antibiotics I have to eat twice a day for ten days works!
And btw, I have never ever in my whole life (during one year) being this many times sick sience I came here. I'm like all the time sick and my body is like screaming for help. I guess all my energy goes to taking care of the kids instead of taking care of my self that I'm used to. But soon (few weeks left) I can start focusing on my self again lol!
