It's 7th of December and I can call it a day and I can call it a semester. I did my last exam of the semester this morning (after enormous amount of two hours of sleep as my friend came over to my place to catch an early plane to Finland today) and it's definitely a pass so no more stress. I'm confident I did alright in all of my subjects - I'm not expecting top grades but at least I shouldn't have failed anything. Seitsemäs joulukuuta ja sanoisinpa, että päivä ja lukuvuosi on pulkassa. Tein...

This challenge has been going around in the blogs of Finnish people living abroad for quite a while and I thought it would be a right time for me to take part as well! So without further explanations, 10+1 questions for an expat Finn aka me. Tämä kyseinen haaste on pyörinyt ulkosuomalaisten blogeissa jo pienen ikuisuuden ja ajattelin, että munkin olisi aika napata pallo ja ottaa osaa! Elikkä ilman suurempia selittelyjä, 10+1 kysymystä ulkosuomalaiselle. 1. What's the best thing about your...

A chilly but sunny Saturday morning, the weather reminds me of a beautiful autumn day in Finland. I get a take-away cappuccino from one of our uni's cafes so I'll have a correct change for the day ticket in the bus. For once the traffic is smooth and we arrive to the town in no time. A bit of shopping and checking out the Christmas markets that would probably look way nicer in the evening when it's dark and all the lights are lit. Viileä, mutta aurinkoinen lauantaiaamu ja sää muistuttaa minua...

Time for the second half of the questions you asked me a while ago - you can go and check out the first part here!Aika tokalle osalle vastauksista teidän kysymiin kysymyksiin - ekan osan voi käydä tsekkaamassa täältä!Living abroad /UlkosuomalaisuusHow your family reacted to you moving abroad? /Miten sun perhe otti sun ulkomaille muuton? - Some of my relatives don't really understand why I want to live abroad but no-one has ever said I shouldn't go. I'm also lucky in the sense that my family has...

I asked you to leave me questions a while ago and there was a bunch of them. It's time to answer some of them as I had to divide this post into two parts to avoid it becoming too exhausting. Anyway, let's get started! Pyysin teitä jättämään kysymyksiä jokin aika sitten ja niitä tulikin ihan kiva läjä. Nyt olisikin aika vastata osaan niistä, sillä jouduin jakamaan tämän postauksen kahteen osaan, kun se alkoi venymään uuvuttavan pitkäksi. Mutta eiköhän vaan mennä asiaan! Food / RuokaIn which...

Since my life in uni has found it's ways and my every day life has some routines finally, I decided I could give you a little insight on what it's like to be a student in Scotland. And what's a better way than to do a traditional "my day"! This time we're taking a look at my regular Wednesday. Let's get started, shall we? Kerta elämäni yliopistossa on alkanut rullaamaan ja elämään on vihdoin löytynyt rutiinit, päätin, että voisin avata teillekin hieman, millaista opiskelijan arki Skotlannissa...

I noticed I haven't written anything here for a while again and decided to fix the situation. I have nothing overly exciting to share with you but a couple of photos from here and there and could do a little catch up with what I've been up to as well. Huomasin, etten ole taaskaan kirjoittanut tänne hetkeen mitään ja päätin korjata tilanteen. Mitään ylenpalttisen jännittävää ei ole tapahtunut, mutta parit kuvat löytyy jaettavaksi asti ja voisinpa vähän kertoilla, mitä viime aikoina onkaan...

I was having a chat with a friend of mine a couple of weeks ago. We were talking about this and that and somehow ended up discussing about a person we both know. My friend would say he's actually friends with this guy, I would say the same but we're friends in that "we hang out because we've got common friends and we have a chat because we happened to bump to each other" way. We never actually spend time together with this person and I can't see myself asking him for a cup of coffee in twenty...

I personally find it unbelievable but I guess I have to believe what my calendar is telling me. I've lived in Edinburgh for exactly two months already. Such a short time but still one sixth of a year. Some weeks feeling like they're never going to end. Some days passing by quicker than I even realize. Some things I've been postponing for way too long (like getting a UK number...) and some things I've got done quicker than I thought. Anyway. Here's how I've spent my first months in the...

English, Scottish, Finnish, Australian English. Languages. I've had a couple of people asking me if I could write about English and especially Scottish English - how has it been, do I understand it, how does it differ from the "normal English"? After thinking about the topic for a while and living in Scotland for some time I felt like I have enough to talk about. However I also wanted to extend this post to include Australian English as it's the first "proper" English I learnt. Obviously I had...

Been ages since the last post again but I'm not even sorry. My life's been as busy as always but I'm enjoying it and here's a little sneak peak into what I've been up to! Siitä on taas ikuisuus, kun viimeksi postailin, mutten ole edes pahoillani. Elämäni on ollut yhtä kiireistä, kuin tähänkin asti ja nautin siitä. Tässä nyt kuitenkin pieni kurkistus siihen, mitä viime aikoina on tapauhtunut!7 things that made me happy lately:7 asiaa, jotka ovat tehneet minut onnelliseksi viime aikoina: 1....

As the title already says, I've lived in Scotland for more than a month and I'm loving it. I have been extremely busy again but I just feel like the more I do the more energy I seem to find and so on I keep exceeding my own expectations over and over again. I barely sit down to just look at my laptop and I've noticed I don't spend that much time on social media either. And I still warmly welcome this change. Kuten otsikkokin jo vihjasi, olen asunut nyt Skotlannissa reilun kuukauden ja rakastan...

It's Saturday again and another weekend and I know I'm probably the worst at keeping my blog up to date. So yes, here we go - a few photos from the last weekend I spent in Paisley. Paisley locates just outside of Glasgow and regardless of it having a reputation of being an unsafe place crowded by alcoholics and drug addicts I liked it. It wasn't what I expected at all but more like a cozy small town, a welcome change to either spending my time on campus or in the city. Jälleen lauantai ja uusi...

My blog reached 100 registered followers in blogger (thank you, and thanks to everyone following me through other social medias as well!) a while ago and I thought it could be nice to do something a bit different to celebrate this milestone. However I couldn't come up with anything entirely original so I decided to go with a traditional Q&A post. So if someone doesn't know how it all works, here are the instructions: Leave a comment down below and ask as many questions as you like. It can be...

I've been living in Edinburgh for a few weeks now so not that long at all. However I have already made my mind: it's an absolutely stunning place. And what's better than amazing views over the city? Or more like over the hills and far away? And that's why I decided to share these three spots to admire the city. They are all worth it, at least if it's a sunny day, even though one of them definitely beats the other two. Olen asunut Edinburghissa muutaman viikon ajan, en edes vielä pitkään siis....
