It was Friday afternoon, I had just been viewing a flat with my friends. The three of us were sitting in a cafe, having our late lunch and enjoying life. Then my phone rang. As soon as I saw the screen flashing the word "mom" I knew what had happened, I didn't need to pick up and hear her say the words. I knew it. My grandmother from mom's side had passed away. Perjantai-iltapäivä, oltiin just käyty katsomassa kämppää kavereiden kanssa. Istuttiin kolmestaan kahvilassa, syötiin...

I wonder if one can die from exhaustion, dozing on my seat in a local church wondering why I though it's a good idea to go to the uni's anniversary church service after a night out with the frisbee girls. Murder mystery, a few drinks and pizza, playing Never Have I Ever, and heading to the club as apparently there was no way I could miss it. Peer pressure or beer pressure, who knows? Dancing to classics and singing our hearts out. Pohdin, voiko väsymykseen kuolla, istuessani paikallisessa...

"Scotland Sundays" is a series of posts about life in Scotland as an university student. I get questions about living and studying here on regular basis and I try my best to answer these questions in these posts in a bit more depth than I'm able to in the comments or other social media. So let's get started, shall we?Today's topic is the costs of living and studying in Scotland. "Scotland Sundays" eli Skotlanti-sunnuntait on postaussarja, jossa käsitellään yliopisto-opiskelijan elämää...

I've had a dream for years already, a dream I was sure of achieving eventually. I've dreamt about it for a long long time, not always actively as it hasn't always been relevant but it has always been lingering somewhere in the back of my mind. And it's a dream of becoming an exchange student. Mulla on ollut unelma jo vuosia. Unelma, jonka saavuttamisesta olin ihan varma. Unelma, josta olen haaveillut pitkään - joskaan en aina niin aktiivisesti, sillä se ei aina ole ollut ajankohtainen ajatus....

I landed to Copenhagen a couple of hours ago. After sleeping a mere two hours at my auntie's place last night (I don't know what is it with me nowadays that I can't sleep properly the night before I'm travelling but it's annoying anyway) I headed to the airport, hopped on board and got here. Slept through the whole flight, ate my second breakfast and decided to open my laptop as I've got a couple of hours to spare before my flight to Edinburgh leaves. Laskeuduin Kööpenhaminaan pari tuntia...

I had a chat with a friend of mine while we were having Christmas dinner last November and somehow we ended up talking about new years resolutions. I told her I don't really like them as I never manage to keep them - just like I still haven't learnt how to dance even thought we agreed on that resolution with my best friend probably good three years ago. She told me my resolutions didn't work because they weren't SMART. Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time specific. And it makes...

I already wrote about my first half of the year in terms of travelling in the previous post, so it's time to take a look at the last six months of the year 2017 now! Kerroin teille jo vuoden ensimmäisestä puolikkaasta ja sen reissailuista edellisessä postauksessa, joten nyt on aika kurkistaa vuoden 2017 viimeisiin kuuteen kuukauteen ja siihen, missä kaikkialla tulikaan käytyä! July / HeinäkuuOn the 2nd July we headed back home from our backpacking adventure in Asia, so the first two days were...

First of all: Merry Christmas to each and every one of you! I haven't felt like posting anything Christmas related and won't do it today either but I still hope you've had as lovely Christmas as I have! Ihan ekana haluan toivottaa oikein ihanaa joulua ihan jokaiselle! Ei ole ollut fiilistä postailla mitään jouluun liittyvää, enkä niin tee nytkään, mutta toivon, että jokaisella on ollut yhtä hyvä joulu, kuin mulla! As we're getting towards the end of the year, I though it would be a perfect...

As I've mentioned - we spent a weekend in Amsterdam with my best friend this December. As these posts talking about the monetary matters of travelling have been extremely popular in the past, I decided to take the chance to talk about the costs of this little weekend getaway. So without further explanations, what does it cost to spend a weekend in Amsterdam? Kuten olen jo täälläkin maininnnut - vietettiin viikonloppu Amsterdamissa parhaan ystäväni kanssa tän kuun alussa. Koska postaukset,...

My best friend arrived here lateish on Thursday last week. Alarm went off right after 5am on Friday morning, taxi to the airport and off we went. Three days in snowy, rainy, windy, and cold Amsterdam. No matter how bad the weather was (December isn't the ideal time to travel there weather-wise) the city was absolutely beautiful. Paras ystäväni saapui tänne myöhään viime torstaina. Herätyskello soi jo viiden aikaan perjantaiaamuna, taksilla lentokentälle ja matkaan. Kolme päivää lumisateen,...

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...
