at the mouth of the river | STYLE

Hi guys!

I have safely landed to Joensuu and began my lovely summer job as Pippi Longstockings! That of course meant that I had to transform my hair quite a bit. After a while I’m getting used this bright orange! Love this new hair ❤ What do you guys think? 🙂

Last post I wrote about how I’m longing for structure and luckily I can say that I’m getting there. Things are still a bit hectic and my body is a bit tired and stressed from all of this change and of course from the long wait caused by Uniarts. ‘Cause this is a personal blog and it’s no secret: I applied for one of hardest school to get in (TeaK) and now I’m waiting for the results to roll in tomorrow

We’ve been busy rehearsing at Teatteri-Traktori and building our very own pool!!! So most of the time, I’m bear faced with just some random sweatpants on. On our days off, I’m making the most of it and dressing up a little. Still I manage to keep my look quite “sporty”!

Waiting for Change

Hi guys!

How are you doing? I’m doing quite okay. If you follow me on instagram, you know that lately I’ve been struggling with unemployment and all that jazz…

I’m longing for structure. Been learning new things about myself and about life in general but somehow I feel stuck. I’m ready for a change.

So welcome Spring!

Spring has never been my favorite season (I get allergy) and although it’s nice to see the nature blooming again, I’m more of a Summer and Fall kinda person.

And this Spring has been a lot of waiting. Waiting for the snowstorm to pass, waiting for the warmth, waiting to see my love, waiting for new things to come, waiting for change…

There are ideas stuck in my head. Knowledge yet to put into action. I’m on the edge. I can feel it. But this WAITING is driving me insane. Playing with time when I know it’s just an illusion. I need to stop, but how? I need to start, but how?

Loosing my grip was a topic that I touched in my The Power of Habits post and I feel it’s still lurking in my everyday life… Next week I’m moving to Joensuu. I’m finally gonna pick up my working habits again and I couldn’t be more excited. Maybe I just need to wait a bit longer.

Or maybe all this is about learning to enjoy the moment?

A little different type of post today but I still hope you liked it. This is after all a personal blog and by no means I’m trying to make the impression that I’m all perfect. Nobody is!

Overanalyzing my future in Miami

Hi guys!

These few weeks have been crazy. I’ve been super productive and then again the laziest person in town. I have a history of being a perfectionist, being really hard on myself and overanalyzing things. Anyone can relate? Anyways those things don’t work when you are really trying to get things done. ‘Cause perfectionism is really just a form a procrastination…

I’m applying for schools here in Miami. I didn’t mention that in my last post on purpose. First I thought I wouldn’t share that here ’cause I felt that if I fail I might be blaming myself for shouting out my dreams to the public and therefore ruining my chances.

But there I was overanalyzing again  😀

I dream big. Always have and always will. But dreams will just be dreams if you don’t do anything about it. I’m trying to do something about it but when nothing is certain the idea creeps out like “what if this is not enough”. I’m breaking my brains with this overanalyzing. I know nothing and it freaks me out. Like I said nothing is certain but then again nothing is impossible.

We spent a long weekend in Fort Lauderdale in an Airbnb apartment. It was my first experience in Airbnb and I’m just gonna say thank you future and technology for making these kind of things so easy. Like Airbnb is basically ordinary people giving their home or spare room for your use inexpensively (or at least that’s what I’m looking for). Why not! And some of these places are really like hotels.

Same thing with Uber which is still kinda illegal in Finland. Ordinary people driving cars and getting you from A to B with lot less money than you would use by taking a taxi. Like yes please! Because here in Miami you really need a car to get places.

Overall I’ve enjoyed my time here in Miami so far. Time really flies by in here. Been watching people’s photos on Instagram and I gotta say at this point I’m not looking forward returning to Finland 😀
