October Addictions

It’s again the end of another month and that means we get to take closer look to my life during that month. Are you ready to hear about my likes and dislikes?

My Month In A Few Words:

October has been busy one. The school has properly started, I went to London and have met a lot of new people.

School
I haven’t learnt so many new things yet but I am totally enjoying the subjects. Marketing, law and business. I think this may be my thing but can’t be sure yet. Currently this is my only school plan so let’s see where is goes.

Blogging
My blog isn’t secret anymore so it has caused some extra stress for me. I try to not think it too much but it’s hard. I don’t even know if poeple I know are reading. I just know they now know about this blog (if they have found it trough my travel blog).

October Addictions:

Music

I have been mostly listening inspiration playlists from Youtube but in addition to that here are some of my lately addiction songs:

BTS – Blood, Sweat & Tears

What is there not to love in this song? The music video is too artsy for me but everything else makes me fall in love with BTS all over again. And I just want to point out that the whole album (you can find it from Spotify) is golden! Suga’s song “First Love” is masterpiece.

Hayley Kiyoko

Hayley is one of my favorite singers and actresses. It’s kind of funny story. First time I have ever seen her was probably the Disney Channel movie ‘Lemonade Mouth’, then in the Fosters and somewhere between there I had listened her music. I just never realised it was same girl in that movie, TV show and songs. The I saw her in CSI: Cyber and she quickly became my favorite actress and singer. She is brilliant and so is this song!

Movies

Now You See Me 2
I loved the first movie and the second one didn’t dissapoint me even if I had high expections. I’m in love with Jack, totally my kind of man. If you don’t know the story I can just say: watch this if you lov magic, thieves and cute friendships. It’s a little bit like a leverage but with magic. Basically it has everything I hope for a good plot.

TV-series

House Of Lies
I tought this Tv-series was about law and boring stuff (I’m not a fan of law shows..) But then I read from somewhere that it’s kind of similar as Leverage (my ultimate favorite TV show ever!) so I decided to give it a change. I kind of like it. A little too much nudity and dirty jokes for my tastes.

Books

Harry Potter
I didn’t have a lot of time to read this month (well expect some school books…). However because we decided to visit Harry Potter studio tour thing in London of course I had to read something Potter related to get in mood. I read the first chapters of book three but didn’t have time to finish it…

Places

Empty Beach
I did small trip to the nearby beach to see the sunrise. I don’t know anything as beautiful as empty beach and the day getting brighter and brighter every moment. See the photo belov. Beautiful isn’t it?

The Important Questions Of October:

What it means to write blog when “real” people are reading?
I still have no idea… Maybe continue as before and try to not think it too much?

How to install new fire alarm?
Last month I was pondering how to change the battery of fire alarm. Suprisingly I learnt that! But also realized that the fire alarm I had used so much time to change the battery didn’t work… So now my problem is how the heck do I use this new alarm my mom gave to me. I can’t adult…

Vilken annan bransch skulle intressera dig?
This question is in swedish. I have no idea what it means and it’s my homework to answer it (and twenty other questions). I’m totally in trouble and don’t know how can I ever pass this course!

.         .       .

Where Have I Travelled?

London
We went with my sister to London! I have been there four times (I think?) and it never gets old. I totally love big cities and masses running around the streets. I had fun and experienced a lot touristy and some not so touristy things.

Train travelling
I have been going back and forth between my new home and former home cities. I like being in train because I always get a lot work done. (I’m in train right now!)

Plans for September

Survive alive from the stressful school days. Yeah, that’s it.

How are you?

Monthly Addictions

I tried to do this thing of telling you about my favorite movies, music, etc. at the end of every week but like you may see I failed badly. So now lets try me writing about my current addictions in the end of every month.

My month in a few words:

September has been busy month for me. I started new school in unknown place in the end of last month and I got my first apartment on the first day of this month. My weeks have been full of school and getting used to living alone. There has been a few catastrophic accidents (like almost blowing up my microwave) but I have survived. All my weekends have gone by traveling between my new home and my childhood home. But I love this kind of small road trips through Finland so it’s okay.

My September addictions…

 

Food

Almost free school food

In Finland our school food is either free or super cheap. Lunch does cost 1,40€ for me and I live for that moment of the day. I don’t have oven on my own apartment so I live on microwave food expect the school days. And our school food is really tasty and we have different kind of breads and salads to go with it.

.           .          .

Movies

Inside Out

September has been full of animation movies for me. Today I enjoyed the Pixar movie Inside Out about emotions living on teen girl’s brains. I loved it! It was kind of funny because my personality is a lot like the Sadness characters and I have a lot of friends who are just like the Happiness character. Even if I’m not always happy I still have my place in this world!

.           .          .

TV-series

Blindspot

This crime TV series started in Finland last month and I have been totally hooked. Strong cool female lead with mysterious past is something I will always enjoy to see. And good looking male lead is good bonus. The tattoos Jane Doe has on her body are amazing and make my aesthetic side scream of happiness.

.           .          .

Manga

Nanbaka

I found this manga to be good stress relief when I have been to busy to properly read any manga. The chapters are short and characters lovable. Who doesn’t love to read about handsome boys who just happen to be a little crazy dangerous criminals in prison? Sorry, I have problems with my bad boy complex…

.           .          .

Songs

Alma – Karma

I bring the karma to your game. You better run run run yeah! I was totally hooked with this amazing Finnish singer at the beginning of September and this song still makes me sing along. This is totally my fighting song or maybe better said my “I want to be badass” song because I’m totally loser.

Blackpink – Boombayah

I would love this band only for it’s name but fortunately their music is even better than the name. I think my new class mates must think I’m crazy because I may or may not always dance on my way to school while listening this song. Boombayah!

.           .          .

The important questions of this month…

Can I microwave frozen onion rings?

-Answer is: you shouldn’t probably test that. I think I almost caused fire by trying. Ups…

How do I change the battery of fire alarm?

-I haven’t yet figured this out. I will update you next month if I finally found someone to teach me how to change it…

How is living alone going?

-If we don’t think the few times I have almost killed my self or destroyed the whole house, I would say I have done quite well. I’m still alive and I think no one excepted that when I left home month ago!

Should I give up learning new languages?

-At the start of this month I got this good idea of going to Japanese language class. Now I’m in problems because I’m the worst in learning languages… Answer for this question is I should but I will probably never stop trying.

.           .          .

Where have I travelled?

streetart
My new home town has crazy street art!

This month has been busy one so I only travelled around Finland. I visited many cities like Rovaniemi, Kannus, Kalajoki, Kajaani and Oulu. I have also been adventuring around my new hometown.

.           .          .

Plans for October…

I have booked week long trip to London because I have time off from school. The rest of October I will be working and doing school stuff. Nothing extraordinary. Well expect I should start the Youtube channel I promised to make when I get 1 000 readers for my blog. (We already passed that point so I’m a little late…)

.           .          .

 

How has your month been? I hope you have had amazing time!

With love,
