Even though I promised to post a lot during the summer, my blog kind of stayed at the back due to everything else I had going on in my life. First of all I found out that I didn't get to any universities I had applied to. At the end of July and beginning of August I was working and at the end of June I turned 19 and went on a trip to Lapland with my grandparents. I did update my instagram during the summer so I decided to make this kind of "I'm back"-collage post!
|Taken on the first day of summer break|
|The first selfie of the summer|
|Adventure-shirt from Primark|
|An outfit from the beginning of the summer, when it wasn't hot yet|
|I really got into watercolours|
|On our way to Lapland with my grandparents we stayed the first night in Kemi|
|On an evening-walk at the bottom of the Lapland-mountains enjoying some water from the mountain creek|
|On top of Taivaskero for the second time!|
|One of the best movies I saw this summer|
|We didn't go to any of the exhibitions, but we did pop in to see the awesome entrance hall of Kiasma-museum in Helsinki|
|Ordered some things from corm.moe|
|We went on a cruise to Stockholm with my family, and the sunset on the way from Turku to Hauho was so pretty|
|Finding these was impossible in normal stores - they were out of sizes everywhere in Helsinki, so I just decided to order them online|
|One of the new try-outs of the summer was this watermelon ice cream/popsicle - I'm in love!|
|One of the best things that happened this summer : I got rid of my long and annoying hair! I must say I'm really happy with the result (even tho now I want to cut it even more...)|
|My passion in watercolours keeps getting stronger and stronger|
|The first curls with the new hair|
|Last Sunday we gathered together with my friends to make Asian food|
Tuosta kouluun pääsemättömyydestä vielä - kun sain tietää etten päässyt yliopistoon, hain Alkio-opistoon Englannin kielen ja kansainvälisyyden linjalle vuoden kestävälle koulujaksolle (jolla tehdään siis avoimen yliopiston ja tän opiston omia kursseja) saan siis suoritettua Englannin kielen perusopinnot täällä, jotka sitten hyväksiluetaan yliopistossa. Opisto sijaitsee Korpilahdella n.30 kilsaa Jyväskylästä. Pääsin kyseiselle linjalle ja nyt olen asustellut täällä kohta n.3 viikkoa (menen tosin viikonloppuisin kotiin) asun opiston asuntolassa kämppiksen kanssa ja omasta mielestä ainakin tää vuosi on lähtenyt kivasti käyntiin! Oon yrittänyt olla paljon puheliaampi ja rohkeampi ja oon tutustunu jo moneen mukavaan ihmiseen!
Yeah, about that not-getting-to-university thing - when I found out that I didn't get to uni, I applied to Alkio-opisto, to its English-line, which lasts for a year. I will get through with the basic studies of English that will be counted at university later on. I have now been living here for 3 weeks (I usually go home for the weekends but still) I live in one of the colleges "apartment buildings" with a roommate and I think this year has started off pretty well! I have been trying to be more talkative and braver and I have gotten to know a lot of nice people already!
