Being alive is EXCITING! - be excited

Here's today's song. Take a deep breath, chill a bit and face the Sun.

I made my mind to post something (extraordinarily for me, before one month has passed again...) AND I have to admit that at the moment my calendar is probably already overbooked and if I know myself at all, I have at least 2 things on top of each other coming up! I don't mind, everything'll be alright in the end, jus' goin' on with da flow !


  • Rotary camp on the beach
  • Baking stuff with exchangers ( it's going to be interesting :D )
  • Going swimming often enough not to get a massive belly
  • Going kayaking with my uncle (Aussie uncle [who is awesome] )
  • Just sayin' we're havin' the camp again, it is awesomeness
  • Beach in various locations with various people
  • Sydney over Xmas and new year!
Okay so that's the big picture of my summer, not including all the cool stuff I'm going to do without warning (this includes most of the stuff I do in general)

I'm totally loving life atm, I finished my yr11 exams and after yr12 headstart week it's school holidays! (and yes you Finnish people who wonder this, I'm going on yr3 after Xmas!) (and we get yr12 jackets!!!!)

AND I went to this awesome Polish festival on Fed Square and caught up with a heap of friends there, the day was magnificent! I of course, being a true blood Pole, had my Polish flags on my cheeks!

The pictures down below aren't really related to anything I wrote about (except for the polish one) but they show little bits and pieces of what I've done.

so there we were!

BAKING... something... I felt useful for once !

Forever alone, I had my time of reading the paper

Ice skating, I'm not sure if i wrote about it but yes we went ice skating!!!

Pool party at Maud's palace (she's an exchanger)

I recon I articulate very badly x)

Ylpiana vielakin taalta alhaalta ja alempaa kirjaillen umlautittoman maailmanpyoran aarella:

Guys, no worries about that above, it's not worth translating :)

(and now you're already opening google translator )

Til' next time, take care all of ya! xx

It starts to look like paradise

Soooo much has happened since I last wrote so I'm going to sum up only some of the most recent happenings!!!

I went to ADELAIDE with my host parents! Ade was just spectacular, met my auntie and some cousins ( add the word 'host' if you want to ) and it is surprising how many Polish people can you find from there! My parents are from a polish background so almost all the family and friends we met were somehow related to Poland! Awesomeness! Another surprising fact about Adelaide is that OMG it is flat. No skyscrapers anywhere near that part of the world I recon. (Unlike Melbourne which, of course is better in every other way too!)

The next day after the first night in sweet small Adelaide, we headed (me head first, my mum just driving the car) to MURRAY BRIDGE which is my bestest finlanderish mate's Teppo Lindberg aka Lehmusvuori's hometown here Dowwwwn Underrr! Which is awesome.! So the first day there after really realizing we two are together once again, we went to the 'center' of MB! In other words there's one main street with Maccas, KFC and Subway and that's pretty much it, what a lovely place to live in indeed!!! (Population was smthin' like 25000 people and a few kangaroos) ANYWAYS because I'm normal I voluntarily went to school with Tebo the next day! It is just amazing how in these small places everyone knows the monkey and the monkey also knows everyone! So the day pretty much went pass along with allllll those manymanymany people Teppo hugged or made me to hug too (it was awesome as!)! And in the evening we had a desperate try of destroying a 24 pack of Solo (lemon & lime, just not to be mainstream) (and because it was cheap!!!) and well let's put it this way: 12x0.375 = 4.5 litres per head! We managed til can number 3 until we felt too ill to continue... And just to mention, this was around 9pm on the riverside of Murray River, there actually was almost as much mozzies as you can find from Lapland! We ended up givin' away free solo's to everyone who was brave enough to take one! (many people took one, maybe they know the value of that stuff in the little city :P )

Carrying on to Adelaide after crying our hearts out on the time of depart, the last night in the 'big A' was OPERA, spelled o-p-e-r-a, not OPRAH! and the magnificent act we saw was Carmen, really enjoyable and heaps fun when your host dad falls asleep before you do! I highly recommend everyone to culturize themselves and take a look @ that thing!

Back in Melbourne (a couple days ago) school holidays are coming up fast as light (from very far away in that case) and now the only thing is to struggle thru final examinations! Thought I should be getting good marks and exceeding expectations just by showing up to those things!

Time is mostly being spent catching up with mates and swimming and lying on the beach and enjoying life! You always find something new in the city! Like today, a reeeally nice surprise was when my Finnish nowadays one of best friends Iris(!!!!) walked up on me in the city and oh god, she has birthdays today, you all ought to say happy bday to her! (in your native languages, of course, just for the impression)

Next Sunday is going to be wicked 'cause of the Polish day on Fed square!!! Looking fwd to see some Polish dancing and all that sorta things!!!!

There's some pictures down below from my time in down under! If you feel like seeing more, visit facebook and have a look at my pictures, not really hard to spot the ones worth looking for!

ps. English really starts to get the control over me now! Along the 2 days with Teppo we tried to speak FINNISH several times, with no success, it is HARD!

You can't really complain in this kind of situation can you? :D

And just to mention, the weather here in Melb starts to be livable, every day is 20+ and still most days start to get up to 26-30 degrees, enjoy Finland my loved ones! <3
