First day – check

My first day of my week as an exchange student at the neighbor city school went well. The people were ever so nice and friendly and I enjoyed myself. Now as the day is at an end I am just here enjoying a veggie burger. Its much better than it sounds. Amazingly enough I’ve been a vegetarian for a month now, by choice, and its great.
Have a good day 🙂

Motivational speaker Mia Törnblom

Hello everyone. So today was a slightly different day at school. The day started off with a musician holding a concert in the new part of the building. There was also information meetings and a tortilla buffet.
To finish off the day we had a motivational speaker from Sweden called Mia Törnblom. And let me just say that this was the perfect ending to this day. Man, can she speak. She was inspirational, funny, amazing with words and I swear she would become the best therapist ever. Her words were so real and made me feel more confident and motivated. When she told me about her previous life to where she is now – she proved you can turn your life around if you really set your mind to it. She’s a true fighter and a true rolemodel. And I will finish this off by reminding you that life isn’t always dancing on roses because, quoting her “Life sucks regularly!”

Get to Know Me: 25 Questions Tag

Hello friends, so I thought since I just started this blog randomly and haven’t exactly had any post telling you things about myself, I thought it’d be cool to make this 25 Questions About Me tag so here we go 🙂


1. Do you have a middle name?

Yes I do actually, its Christina which I got from my mothers middle name which is also Christina.

2. What was your favorite subject in school?

I’ve always been quite a language nerd so I enjoyed english very much

3. What’s your favorite drink?

I’m a coffeeaddict. Need I say more? I think not, haha.

4. What’s your favorite song at the moment?

Animals by Maroon 5, absolutely.

5. What would you name your children?

I must admit I don’t think about this an awful lot but I’ve always thought that if I had a girl, I’d name her Juliette and if I had a boy, his name would be Colin.

6. Do you participate in any sports?

No, not really. I used to play soccer as a kid but didn’t like it that much. I do swim a lot though but only for fun.

7. What’s your favorite book?

I have two actually (Sorry, I can’t choose) . Orange is The New Black by Piper Kerman and The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

8. What’s your favorite color?

Red, obviously.

9. What’s your favorite animal?

Cats. This answer should be pretty obvious. Especially to the people who know me well.

10. What’s your favorite perfume?

The Boum-fragrances by Jeanne Arthes

11. What’s your favorite holiday?

Christmas by far

12. Have you graduated from high school?

I have to say that I don’t really know what counts as high school in Finland so I have to leave that question unanswered

13. Have you been out of the country?

Yes I have but I’d love to go further than my neighbor country but I have plans for the future 🙂

14. Do you speak any other languages?

Well, as I said I am quite a language enthusiast and all languages that I know are Finnish, Swedish, English, Estonian, French and beginner Italian

15. Do you have any siblings?

Yes, two younger brothers.

16. What’s your favorite store?

I have to honestly say I don’t have one

17. What’s your favorite restaurant?

Well since I go to a restaurant school I hardly go to any restaurants cause I like to make the meal myself instead and I’m a vegetarian nowadays so homemade meals are the best. In other words, I don’t really have one since I go to one so rarely.

18. Do you like school? 

Can’t complain.

19. Who are your favorite YouTubers?

Should I list all of them? Cause there’s quite a bunch. Oh well. JennaMarbles, Shane Dawson, iiSuperwomanii, iJustine, Danisnotonfire, Tyler Oakley, Markus Butler and Bart Baker. I’m sure there are more but like I said the list is long and they get all mixed up in my brain.

20. What’s your favorite movie?

Well, like I wrote in a previous post, I fell in love with The Fault In Our Stars-movie cause I’ve watched it over 5 times now and it’s amazing so I think I’ll go with that. But then there’s also A Million Ways To Die In The West. So I have two.

21. What are some of your favorite Tv-shows?

The Big Bang Theory, Orange is the New Black, South Park and lately I’ve also been obsessing over British reality tv

22. PC or Mac?

PC all the way

23. What phone do you have?

Currently a Samsung Galaxy Core+ smartphone

24. How tall are you?

In centimeters it would be 177 cm but since we don’t use feet and inches here where I live, I converted it and apparently I am 5’9

So there you go, this was my 25 Questions tag. If you have any questions of your own, you are more than welcome to comment them below and I’ll answer them in another post. Hope you enjoyed this post!

Good morning

After a somewhat emotional night last night for personal reasons, I am now feeling slightly better and reading my favorite book of all time – The Fault In Our Stars. I originally saw the movie and I fell in love with it. I’ve seen it over 5 times now. Yeah, I’m an enthusiast. So now I’ve also bought the book and I love it just as much.


(This is the finnish version of the book)


Small luxury

Hello everyone. Went to the nearby city today to get the items on the shopping list I posted earlier. A mini-collage will be posted later. Small note. Brand of the items may have changed.
Right now I’m just sitting here in a café having a lovely little Chococcino. Heaven, right here, in this cup.
