Autumn: Challenge Accepted!!!!

Yesterday: Why is everybody carrying umbrellas?? It's not going to rain anyway so I don't bother to go back home to get mine..
---> It started to rain like crazy

Hmm, I feel a bit strange, probably caught a cold yesterday.. But I learnt something from it! Today I'll wear my Special Autumn Clothes (orange is a suitable color for autumn, isn't it??) and something warm for my feet also!!!! However, I don't need an umbrella because it's not going to rain anyway. I even checked the forecast!
---> It started to rain like crazy

 The result: I skipped school because I have a fever.

Pics from my cellphone: 19.8-12.9

 №1 Parliament house of Helsinki as seen from Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art
(Just to mention, it's one of the worst museums I've ever been to, and luckily I didn't have to pay for entrance because I'm still under 18... The shop has some nice stuff, like those notebooks I introduced before, though!)
№2 My neighbor's house was on fire... The result: three fire trucks, a police car and an ambulance. But no worries, nobody got hurt!! I suppose somebody just forgot their food in the oven ;)
№3 Dinner In The Sky was in Helsinki for a couple of days in August! I would have loved to try it, but I'm afraid of heights...
№4 Cup noodles!!!! Needless to say more!!
 №5 Math homework for ~2 months.. Not that bad. The ones written in bold are compulsory exercises, and other ones are obligatory. Just to mention, my exams are after 2 weeks :O I'd better start studying.........
№6 It's a tradition of mine to eat some junk food on Tuesdays (don't even ask!!). Normally I go to McDonalds for that purpose, but this time I couldn't find it so I went to SpiceIce instead. Yummy, but the cup was soooooo big I had to throw more than 50% away :s
№7 On my way home.. The weather has been just horrible lately! I feel like I'm just catching a cold.
 №8 I forgot my dinner home so.......
№9 Donald D!!!!!!!! He helps me to remember some new words ;)
 №10 I already wrote "Who is he??? You're awesome if you know who he is!!" here, but then noticed his name is written there on the lower right corner of the pic..... Oh well.

Ps. In case S reads this, the surprise post card was from me!:)

One of the keys to happiness is a bad memory

A quote by Rita Mae Brown. It's a topical one because I just bought 3 study skill improvement books, and one of them is called "How to improve your memory for study"....... The other ones being "How to improve your maths skills" and "How to improve your study skills"! I wish I'll time to read them before I have wasted all my life studying with bad technique ;)

My Great Plan for the weekend: hair-dying :) Bought the dye on Saturday, but I don't have time to use it during the week so I have to wait a bit and just avoid looking in the mirror :p The pic was taken about a month ago when I got my hair dyed by a professional hairdresser.. I'd like to get something similar, but no can do.......

Busy, busy...

Normally I'd say "I'm so busy, I hate this... I just miss the summer!!!" At moments like this... But actually, I don't miss the summer now, I just miss those lovely and warm summer days :p Now I'm being busy in a good way, loooots of nice stuff to do and so on :)

What a weird day...

One of the things I got this weekend... I got some other stuff too, but the photos turned out too bad to show here!! Waaay too bad.

Anyway, talking about my purchases isn't the point of today's post! I just want to share my strange day with you guys and girls... Here it comes:
8.00 The doorbell rings, but I'm sleeping so I don't open the door
---> Later on I find a strange paper on my floor! The only thing that's written there is "You've got mail, pick it up from the post office" and some numbers!! The problem is that there's no name on the paper, and I have two housemates... And they didn't even write which post office we should get the packet from :s

10.00 I find out that my history book has disappeared... I probably sold it with some other books, and didn't notice that I need it! I need to buy a new one, what a shame :s

11.20 I'm going to school, a bit too late... School starts at 11.30 and I'm still at the train station (I have to take 2 trains to go to school). Then a stranger starts to talk to me!!!! That's something that doesn't happen too often here in Finland.. Because most Finns are really shy! Anyway, we talk for a while and change Facebooks, and I run to school (we had our class photos at 11.45 so I wasn't late after all:)

12.40 Lunch!! Suddenly my English teacher walks to my table and asks me if I want to give a speech about Sami mythology at a culture center (I made a presentation about it last week, started writing it at 3 in the morning before the presentation and I think it wasn't very good)... That was so surprising!!

15.00 Looking for a new history book at a store. After finding the book, I see they have lots of language books as well, and decide to have a look... End up buying a dictionary, an answer books and a grammar book. And that history book of course. When I'm about to go and pay for the books, another stranger stops me, looking at my Portuguese books: "Do you study Portuguese??"
M: "Yup!"
S: "At a university??"
M: "No, at an adult high school."
S: "Okay, I was just curious because I was in Brazil last year!"
M: "Woooow, which cities did you visit?"
Then it was my turn to pay... Too bad I couldn't talk more with her!! I hope I'll see her somewhere later :p

Now, after all that, I'm just super tired... But I still have homework to do! Hopefully there will be no more strange stuff for this evening ;)

Marimekko Oiva: Unikko Bowl

Isn't it cute?? It makes my morning porridge to taste a biiiiiit better :p

Yesterday's shopping trip wasn't a total failure after all- I found some basic stuff and also two cute shirts! But  I still haven't found new jeans!!!!!! It seems impossible to find nice ones :/

My first day in Chicago, September 4, 1983. I set foot in this city, and just walking down the street, it was like roots, like the motherland. 
I knew I belonged here.

It's officially Autumn now... I can finally allow myself to wear a coat when I go outside!! 

PS. Today's plan: shopping (and studying....)! Need some autumn & winter stuff :)

The last days of summer

Okay, this shouldn't be called summer anymore. One morning when I left for school, it was only +7 outside... Soon it'll be -7!!!!!!! :O

Books for the English lessons

9 books to go through in 9 months of English lessons.. The grammar book is the only one we'll use for more than one semester. And these books are for English lessons only: of course I have some other lessons, too. Like in this term, I have geography, maths and social studies at my own school (and English of course). Besides that, I'll take some courses at another school, but I'll write more about that when I get to choose the courses (August 22nd)!

Oh anyway, this weekend has been such a nice one... On Saturday I went to see my friend and their house and then she came to my house. We got hungry after a while and went to have a dinner at a Chinese restaurant ( just to mention, it was probably the worst Chinese restaurant I've ever been to -.- The food in the pic isn't from that restaurant, though. That one is from  a Japanese restaurant in Espoo, and the food was delicious:) and after that we walked back to my friend's house. And played Wii for 3463453543534 hours......... And Sunday, I mean today, was just boring. I read the book Kafka on the Shore and did some school stuff. So needless to say, it was a peaceful day :p

PS. I hadn't even noticed the new followers.. Thanks♥

School starts tomorrow

This summer has passed so quickly... I feel like it's been just a week or two since my holiday begun. But no, it's been more than 2 months!!!

It's 5 o'clock in the morning

I ran out of Blogger space, so from now on, I need to put my photos to Photobucket and then to Blogger... Oh well.
