Blogger’s Block

RU6A1798I’ve felt completely out of ideas with my blog lately. And to tell you the truth, I haven’t really even had the time to worry about it. I had forgotten how energy consuming starting a new job might be. I just needed to focus all the brain functioning I have towards that. But now a little over two weeks down at the new place, so we’re already on the winning side. 🙂 And I guess if I want to work in this more and more volatile media field, I better get used to this uncertainty and changes.

The days are also getting longer as we speak, so I’m sure the extra light won’t do any harm to my energy levels…  Maybe soon my head is filled with different ideas for travels and photo projects again. Any day now. 🙂RU6A1803


What Next?

RU6A1440I don’t have a definite answer for that question that everybody keeps asking me right now. I feel like the Christmas coming up in five days is the only thing I know for sure. The reason people keep asking me ‘what next’ is that in four days, I’ve had my last day in my current work — at least for now. Did one year go fast or what?

And even though work shouldn’t be the most important thing in life, it (or the lack of it) has nevertheless a pretty big influence on one’s life. Because of that, part of me is nervous about what will I do, will I find something nice to do and if I’ll enjoy it as much as I did enjoy working this year? But then again part of me is thrilled about all the possibilities I might encounter. Anything could happen.


What ever I’ll do, first I’ll just take a deep breath. Enjoy the last three days at work and then the holidays. I even bought an over-the-top glitter-rose for the season to brighten up the house. Hope my future will be as sparkly. 🙂


Let’s Stay Home

IMG_1856Travel fever starts to burn again in the back of my head. It’s been almost three months from Berlin, and I still got no idea where I would go next and when. I mean it’s weird that I don’t even have a clear idea about where I would want to go next… This year I’m mostly stuck at work anyways, so short holidays limit get-aways a lot too. And lately my travel budget has been splurged on moving and decorating the new house…

I don’t know if it has something to do with having no travel plans, but I also woke up to the fact that for the first time when I’m living “on my own” (away from my parents house), I have a home where nothing annoys me.

I’ve had nice apartments, but the first one had way too small bathroom, I could hardly sit on the toilet seat without my knees touching the wall opposite to it. The next one had big toilet, but dust kept building up in piles everywhere at megalomaniac speed. And that student apartment had too sensitive fire alarm system  too. (Waking up to an alarm sound sometimes twice a week get’s old after a while…). Then the last apartment at Tampere was nice too, but some little things were broken here and there, and we didn’t have quite enough room for all my clothes the stuff. And I don’t even wanna start with all the summer apartments I’ve had. Living in the middle of strange peoples stuff or without no furniture at all isn’t too cozy.

With the new place, I can’t come up with any big reasons to complain about. Everything works fine and  the floor-plan is good. Well, location could always be closer to downtown Helsinki, but it isn’t the apartments fault is it? 🙂 IMG_1851 IMG_1827 IMG_1823-horz IMG_1821
