I’m not the concert-going-type. Sure, I’ve been to the odd summer festival some 15 years ago, and I’ve seen Bon Jovi twice (wouldn’t mind seeing them again). But other than that. Naah. I find other use for my money. I have however been fairly angry with myself for the last decade or so. You see, […]
I’ve had a severe case of wanderlust these last few days. I’ve been dreaming about people I know abroad and miss, about places I’ve never been to and about places I long to visit again. I’ve woken up sad, laughing, angry, happy… and tired. Most of all, I’ve woken up tired this whole damned week. […]
…and the feeling when you get out of bed and realise you’ve slept with your window open the whole night. In Finland. In February. Oh well, there’s a first for everything I guess. And yes. I do remember. Some of you [weirdos] sleep with them open all year round. Right here in Finland. But I […]
When you can’t even think about going outside without looking like this, then it’s time to hibernate. Too bad my work doesn’t really support full-time hibernation; I have to make an appearance at least a few times a week. Fortunately, I live only a five minute walk away. Unfortunately, that doesn’t decrease the amount of […]
Oh my, I had no idea you would find my year so interesting. Views on my blog peaked yesterday, and I’ve been receiving FB-messages all night from people waiting to read the rest of it. I’m all what?… I just like writing, that’s all.. But I’m glad to see you like reading what I write, […]
I harboured this slight hope that I would return from my holiday with some plans for the future, with a sense of direction. Waking up last Tuesday, I must confess, I felt a slight pang of end-of-holiday-blues, and more than a slight disappointment that I had no new job, no new fascinating city, no nothing […]
i am so utterly depressed right now. you figure out why.
the sun went up at 3.50 am. and it will set at around 10.50 pm. summer solstice. don’t know if i like the word or hate it. i think the latter. it’s as beautiful as it gets in this country and the coming weekend will be filled with fun festivities around the clock. after that, […]
summer has arrived for real. wonderful. i can’t help but stay happy even though the insomnia continues and i have more work to do during one day than i had at ib during a whole week. unfortunately this means i don’t really have time to blog nor answer e-mails. perhaps when i’m post… worked..ish?
the sun rose at 8.44 a.m. and it will set at 3.29 p.m (making the day 6h 45min long.) it’s -12° celsius, the wind makes it feel like about -20°. the official snow depth is 17 cm, in some places up to 25 cm, and one nutter rode past me on a bike this morning. […]
oh what joy to be back in town after three weeks at gerby! i haven’t spent that much time there in a row since i moved away eleven years [sic!] ago… it’s been nice to be there alone as well as to have friends over for the weekends, but it sure is good to be […]
