I was at my parents summer house for the last 5 days and they don't have internet connection there, which means, no updates! Sorry for not informing beforehand, if someone missed me, and if you didn't, don't tell me because I've been living in this beautiful dreamland where I get comments like: "Glad you're back, missed you, I hope it was fun!" Joke. (At least half of it was. You can decide which half.)
So. Midsummer day (Juhannus)! <3 I love it. It's the best part of the year after Christmas, which is the best. In Finnish we have this saying: Jouluna ja Juhannuksena
. Which means: At Christmas and at Midsummer day - the first one is for your family and the second one is for your other family, the one's you've picked, your friends. So me and 12 of my dearest friends (ok, there's six of them but they've all divided like bacteria. Ok fine! Hmph. I've been told the word is boyfriend,
(and that it has something more to do with gaining something than dividing) but it seems like an awful virus that you can't get rid of even if you DO keep your clothes on... :P)
Anyway, we were at my parents place as they decided to stay home this year and it was AWESOME!
We had sauna, Baltic Sea, canoes, midsummer bonfire, beer, good food, good company, board games, and the most beautiful view! I'll show you when I get the pictures on my computer.
Diet? Well, I may have not eaten as healthily as was the intention, but I also didn't eat all the chocolate cookies Minna baked or all the ice cream Sora brought with her. So I'm pleased. Because, well, the old me would've done exactly that...
Seriously, I can relate to Pac Man:
What else is new? Oh. I decided I'm starting to pretend I'm deaf when I go to gym. Why?
Well, someone had hit on lindsaylikesart
at the gym she does her work outs and I realized that while it's awesome for her, I would propably freak out, get an heart attack and die. Not a good way to go. I would have to come back and haunt him the rest of his life. "I hadn't achieved my target weight you idiot! I died overweight and it's you fault!" ... Poor guy. I hope that never happens. :O
I also watched a movie during the weekend, The Laramie Project
and I cried my eyes out. I've never been more grateful that I've been born so late to this world. And more importantly, to this side of the world where I can at least have the illusion of equality. I'm starting uni this year - religious studies. But I already know that after my Bachelor's degree I want to do my masters on human rights and maybe gender and sexuality studies. Because it kind of hit me yesterday that equality still is exactly what I said before, illusion. And as a HUGE Harry Potter fan, I of course want to follow his footsteps: there's no such thing as pure blood for Gryffindor's sake!
