SHOUTOUT

Forgot to mention that my lovely cousin Nadya has started a blog so you can go and check out what she's writing @ http://floridasmermaid.blogspot.com/. GO GO GO!

Last night of 2013...

...and the last night in Florida! Buuhuu! Although I do miss my friends and my own bed (I kn ow you feel the same Nadya, sharing that one cover has been... challenging XD) I will miss my family and the sunny state! I have to say that I'm way to un-social to be living over here but a 3 week visit every winter is just perfect!
Last night was a good end to the holiday, we went to Flanagan's to eat some yummy ribs and a huge chocolate brownie dessert, when we got home we did some suck'n'blow jello shots (can you believe I did jello shots with my grandma?) and the night ended with the always hilarious Madagascar!
Right now we're just chilling, our flight leaves at 6 o'clock so New Year's will be spent on a plane... hopefully they have good movies!

Happy New Year Everybody, may 2014 be even better!





RIBS!



Happiness!

Long lines

Last night we ordered some PadThai and watched SNL all night long, which was nice since I felt sick all day long (we have some kind of bug going on in the house). Today it's been cloudy so we decided to go to Sawgrass Mills Mall to do some shopping... I have to say that I enjoy shopping at home more, there were sooo many people there and I hate walking around when people are sooo slow and the lines are never ending... But I did find some cool stuff, like a Princess Jasmine phone case and black pants!

2O13

Well the year is ending and since I'll be spending New Years Eve on an airplane (I'm planning on being the most annoying passenger and doing a 'New Years Countdown' on every timezone we pass... maybe not) I thought this would be a good time to take a look at the year 2013!

I got home from the States just in time to celebrate New Years with my friends for the first time and I have to say that it is overrated! But I had a good time and after being awake for something like... over 30 hours?? I. was. dead.


Went to Tampere to visit Essi with Ella!


This was the funniest video me and my friends had seen in a while
Sang with Emppu at a concert that our school organised

It was the last day of school and I looked back at all the wonderful memories with my friends!

Had a teacher-student dinner with my ABI grade it was so much fun!

a lot of fun...

We got ready for our Penkkis day, the last day as seniors...

...and it was a night we will always remember!



The afterparty was on a cruise ship with terrible white wine...

...but we managed to overlook that!

I worked at Moominworld during the short winter holiday in February and met up with all of my wonderful friends! 


We celebrated Emppu turning 19 and I baked her an awesome moustache cake!



but we didn't just party 'cause finals were coming up and in the end I was very fed up with studying...

...and afterwards we did some more partying! This time it was the abi party and me and Emppu had front row 'seats' at the Karri Koira concert (that steel chain left some marks on us though!)

It was my birthday and Kata surprised me with a cake!
I was working and I didn't really celebrate it in any special way but it was ok because we were on our way to Magaluf!
Got home and it was back to reality and also some new changes since we moved in to a new house!
I graduated and I couldn't be happier! 
My summer filled with work was about to start and I mean I worked ALL THE TIME. So I really cherished hanging with my wonderful friends, knowing this would be the last summer we really would all be in the same place!
Then came the BEST weekend of the summer, I had 3 days of from work and it was time for RUISROCK! Plus I got the news... I got in to study English at a University!!
Summer was almost over but I had my last day at work and I still had 3 weeks before school started, I couldn't be happier! I celebrated by seeing friends and family!
... and I went to Weekend Festival with Emppu.
A new chapter in my life started and I began studying English. I met so many new people and it was all so... so new!
The first weeks were basically all about parties and sitzes...
... but we also studied very hard!
The first period of Uni ended and we celebrated with pizza and wine!
Then I broke my ankle, buu!
... but that didn't stop me from celebrating Halloween...
...going to Britannica's annual party...
... and getting to use my overalls for the first time!
Christmas came and now I'm here! It's been a great year but I'm hopng 2014 will bring something new!
