I feel good!

This song pretty much explains what I'm feeling right now:

I just returned the final version of my Masters' thesis to my professor. I can't stop smiling. Finally, it's done!

Music that takes my breath away

Have you experienced how powerful music is? How it captivates you and takes you to another place? I have many times. It dives into the deepest parts of me and moves me like nothing else.

I want to share couple songs, that have this magical power over me.

Is there a song that really touches you?

1. Another silly question

When you see a nice pic on Pinterest, that happens to be a board cover pic, how can you open the pic instead of the whole board? I'd love to know this!

2. Cross stitch

When I was a kid, I loved to cross stitch! I've been pinning pretty and modern patterns, because I want to get back to that. HERE you can see what I've found so far.

3. NHL playoffs!

I'm a huge hockey fan. I'm so excited that the NHL playoff are finally here.

Seeing the same dream over and over again

During the last couple months, I've seen one dream several times. 

In this dream I sit in an airport cafe. Then suddenly I realise that I'm late. So late, that I start to panic. My plane is about to take off and I haven't even checked in yet. I start to run around in full panic. I know my gate number but it's impossible to find it. I'm always in the wrong terminal and the gates are not in logical order.

Then I wake up. 

When I was younger I kept dreaming about my teeth falling off. 

Before I met my husband, I dreamed several times about being forced to marry a Danish truck driver. Our wedding theme was... Drums, please! TRUCKS. 

Do you have recurring dreams?

We did something crazy!

You'll never guess what I did with my sister! Let me start from the beginning.

My sister has lived several years in Asia. She moved back to Finland  and got married. 

I'm about to graduate from university. 

There's something we both need. Try to guess what?

We need jobs.

So, we decided to do something crazy, because we are dreamers and believe in hard work and creativity. We started to develop a business idea. 

Baby steps first: Summer English clubs for kids. 

Later we'll develop our business further.

We started to advertise today on Facebook! Already hundreds of people have seen our ads! Yay!

When I Was a Teenager

I was a teenager... let me count... 7 years ago. 

... I was insecure

When I was a teenager I didn't see how wonderful and valuable I am. I wasn't comfortable in my own body and I was extremely self-conscious. I thought I was the clumsiest person in the world and my jokes and laughter were weird. 

... I was independent

My teen years were quite paradoxical. On the other hand I was insecure but I was also extremely independent. I didn't mimic my peers. I wanted to make my own decisions based on my own will, experiences and moral. 

... I was waiting for my life to begin

I didn't think my life had yet started. I was constantly thinking "When I turn 18...", "When I go to high school..." or "When I get a boyfriend..." It was always "when" never "now".

... I was silly

After seven years I find my teenage thought processes silly. Isn't it amazing how much a person can grow!

Isn't it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back, everything is different?

What were you like when you were a teenager?
