My mom and I went to the annual Medieval festival in Turku, where we met my cousin, ate some candy apples and looked at all the different booths. We spent the night at my parents' place, ate good food, and hung out with the doggie.

Emppu's graduation party! I'm still waiting on pictures from that night, so I think I'll leave all the details for another post. To be continued...

One of the most productive days this summer, I managed to get some writing done, I cleaned and went for a run, but the accomplishment I was most proud of was changing the front tire of my bike all by myself. I was still contemplating whether to do it or not, but when I went to the store I saw that all of the bicycle equipment was on sale so I figured it was a sign! Plus, most of the people on my instagram poll also thought I should do it. It wasn't actually hard at all, the instructions on wikihow were very easy to follow and the whole thing probably took like 30 minutes max.
Thursday July 5th:
I picked up my aunt Tessa from the airport. She had a super cute gift with her too made out of wine corks. The rest of the night was spent with the family.
Friday through Saturday it was Ruisrock weekend, and like last year, I was working. We got to wear some festival themed clothes instead of our normal working attire, which was pretty cool. I wore my Ruisrock t-shift that I won at my very first Ruissi in 2010, also, Ruisrock's instagram account replied to my story with a heart so I feel like they were thinking of me, even if I couldn't be there this year!
After work, I met up with Emppu for a drink at one of the riverboats - our consolation for not being able to go to the festival this year. I guess the atmosphere there was a little bit like a festival though; there were a lot of drunk people, some woman screaming on the top of her lungs to her boyfriend, a guy who literally jumped from the roof of the boat into the river, and eventually an ambulance, fire brigade and police at the scene. A lot of excitement for a Sunday evening! After finishing our drinks we went back to my place and watched Camp Rock. Last time we got together we watched the Lizzie Mcguire movie, so obviously we had to go with another Disney Channel film this time as well!
