slow it down

What? Already end of January? I'm not ready that time goes so fast. Not that I'm against spring and summer. I'm fine with winter, as long as I can stay home :D Actually it's a pity I don' walk so much now. During summer it's so easy just to go out, go anywhere without any purpose. I just remembered my bike ride from last summer. The weather was wonderful and I just rode a bike all by myself, listening to the Crash, I think it was "Ponyride", it was a marvelous sunset and I thought that life, summer and this moment is sooooo wonderful and great and I felt so happy. This memory is warming me up and bit by bit I start to feel spring in my bones. I won't be surprised that actual spring would come only in the end of April here, but it does not matter now.
There is also another flashback that I keep on remembering every year. I used to listen music all the time, especially while sitting in a bus. When I studied at college, I had to switch two buses and had enough time to listen through my cds. I just remember listening music, smiling because of spring, sun coming out and temperature becoming higher. Now, If I have some kind of winter depression, I just know that spring comes and everything will change, everything will be brighter and happy feelings will arise again. I don't know, maybe I changed and even winter does not seem so horrible anymore. I try to find nice and positive aspects of this period. I feel more happy all the time. It is so easy to be happy. We just have enormous amount of happiness inside and it's incredible we don't see it all the time. It is enough not only for ourselves, but for others to share with. I just wish to open this door and give everything I have for people in any possible way. Sounds like a plan :)
During this time I managed to go to the movies with dad for the first time. We went to see Hobbit, at last. I'm not a fan, but I like books very much, I'm more Tolkien's fan than all these movies' fan. We had great time and enjoyed the movie.
On Friday we visited Matka Trade Fair in Helsinki with our school and I got some interesting brochures and even a tattoo there. It's only a fake one, but it looked so real on the picture, I started to consider of taking a real one (that's hardly possible :D)
On Mondays I have Adventure tourism course at uni and we went ice skating on a lake, it was strange, funny and interesting. I didn't even fall! :) Next week we are going downhill skiing, I'm already afraid of this trip.
Most of the time I concentrate on studying now and I hope to walk more, to visit museums/galleries every friday and it would be great to visit some nice concert too.

I spend a lot of time at home. I'm a homey type. My flat is 16,5m² and I'm so happy about it, it's perfect! It's great to live in such a small place, as my expectations about my next flat are 
not going to be so high. There is no need in large area, as long as it is on the main street. For now, living in the centre is more important than living closer to nature. While I have this chance, I take it. When I first saw this apartment, I liked it so much. It is hard to live in it during summer, because it's very hot. On the other hand, I can go to the "terrace" from my window 
and take sun or just sit in the evening and enjoy weather. 
I started to think about my current flat, cause one day I searched for studio apartment in Helsinki and found out they are sooo expensive. Yeah, sure, I live in a student apartment and pay 300€, which includes water, electricity, internet, sauna and laundry. Flats I found in Helsinki were 600-700€ and most of them don't include any of these. Well, it's good to be a student :D
One week of studies behind. New courses, new assignments and new students. Seems like it's my last spring in TAMK, at least I hope so and I will try to enjoy it every moment. I dunno, but I feel something's gonna change this year and I'm looking forward to face it. Here are some things from my beloved apartment and some moments from last days.

I found it in the basement, almost thrown away. it is so me <3

I <3 accessories

somebody I used to know

Last photos from last year. New Year was fabulous, fun and sweet. I celebrated it with my friend's family. We had a lot of food, different competitions, talks and great time. At 22.00 we went to see fireworks and waited 10 minutes for it to start. Meanwhile, we celebrated New Year, as it has already started in Russia. Fireworks were wonderful and magical. I felt like a little girl living in a fairy tale and even shed a tear of happiness. After this show we came back home and continued eating and having good time. We met friends later and all in all it was a great New Year's Eve. On Tuesday I realised that it's my last week before studies start and was shocked how quickly time has passed. My last days and I'll be back studying. It's my last year and I am planning to graduate by the end of the year. I don't have so much time to decide whether I want to stay in Tampere or move somewhere....I don't know yet :)
So here are photos from last year, from now on, new photos, new things and hopefully new skills. It's not that I wrote some resolutions, but I keep them in mind ;)
