My Finnair app is my best friend right now because every time I log on that beautiful app it tells me how many days I have to wait until I get to stand on Finnish soil again, oh may I add, after a short 3 hour straight flight to Finland. Oh yes, Finnair I love you.
After a kind reminder from a friend I am here again, probably for the last time this school year, updating this blog with another meaningless thought after another. As previously noted my Finnair app tells me that today I only have to endure four more days, check in in two days which is basically being on the flight. SO EXCITED.
My upcoming days are pretty packed and mental, tomorrow is my last day of studying because on Monday I have two exams: One at 12 and one at 6 pm. And on Tuesday I have another exam at 6 pm and after that I am done with year 2, I am more than half-way through my degree and I am only 12 hours away from hopping in a cab that'll take me to the airport. At 3:25pm (local time) I will be landing in Finland on Wednesday for the whole summer, for three long months surrounded by friends, family, cars, boats, work, after-works, nature and Padva. Ahh life.
Today however those things do not really affect me, I have been in the apartment since Thursday studying away and seeing how everybody else are having fun on social media, or how they are getting done with school or celebrating life and it has made me sad and bitter, jealous. So yes, the bitterness has been on high levels and quite understandably at a hight today on the count of it being Saturday and apparently the first day of amazing weather in Finland. Lucky ducks! But fear not I am used to that whilst being here and a sure sign that I will be in Finland soon is that the next 2 weeks are completely full of parties, hang outs, work, spring cleaning and other shenanigans! Ah to have a busy life again!!
So my time is coming, take comfort in that as you feel sorry for me. (Really don't, I've put myself in this situation)
This may come as a surprise but the past week or so I have been kinda okay with being here and it is solemnly based on weather. Finland has had snow, snow and even more snow whilst we've been having full-on sunshine, no wind and weather up to 20-25°C, soooo kinda on the better end of that at least! Oh and on the matter of full-disclosure I have even burnt myself (fy fy fy) and gotten a bit of a base tan going on! YAY.
Other than that I realised today, after finishing yet another tv-series, that I have gone through so many tv-series lately. Because when I take a break from studying I need to stimulate myself without thinking and that is where the tv-series enter the picture... but unfortunately The Office ended two weeks ago (after re-watching it for the 5th time) so I was in need of finding new series. So I've been on the hunt and quite accidentally gone through a couple of shows on the way there.
I started watching Riverdale on Netflix and went through that in less than a week, it was okay high-school-murder drama with a little bit of ginger (I KNOW) eye-candy to look at when it got boring. Unfortunately there is only one season of it as it just started so I am at a standstill with that right now.
I also started watching #girlboss on Netflix a couple of days ago and I am now through the first and only season of that one too... It was okay but the actor as the main character is not really in my taste so I have been cringe-watching it for the past days. Oh well.
Miranda, a silly BBC comedy, was suggested to me on Netflix so I gave it a shot and had it on when I was cooking or doing other stuff and because of the fact that not all seasons are on N. I am now through that one too... Gah.
One new show that I also started this past two weeks of binging is a show that I am completely scared of, intrigued with and in a state of constantly wanting more. (sounds like I am talking about something else hahahahaha) (sorry mom) The Handmaid's Tale! It is set in this dystopian future where America is a big ol' cult fixated on having babies and reproduction because so many people had died and there is a shortage of babies. Anyways it is so interesting and a future that, with the current state of American affairs, doesn't seem to crazy at all. On top of it being interesting the quality and the acting in the show is top-notch. Can't wait for the next episode!
I think there are no more shows that I have gone through in the past two weeks, well I have been re-watching episodes of Friends, Gilmore Girls, That 70's Show and The OC at the same time but that's when I have no idea of what to watch.
I think it is quite obvious that I have not done much this past week. Really, nothing except apparently becoming a tv-series critique. Oh and watch ice-hockey but I am not happy about it so I don't want to talk about it. One of those off years again...
Oh well I am off to continue some studying on human rights.
