Hello world! Guess who’s late again? I’m sorry, but my life has been pretty hectic lately, and it doesn’t seem like getting any quieter.
However, I’m not complaining about that, I want my life to be exactly this way. I love being full of things to do, I love hauling my ass from one place to another the whole day (guess it counts as a kind of workout, doesn’t it? :P ) and I simply love spending my time all around the city!
Besides, this kind of life makes me enjoy and appreciate the calm even more, it makes me treasure the quiet time in the evening with my man even more, as well as the quick chat with people and friends.
And now, who wants to learn something about my August 2014?
First of all, as I have already written in my last report, we went to Italy (Milano) for 10 days. It was so lovely to see my family again and have… Well, can we call them “family moments”? As well as it was lovely to meet an old friend of mine who I hadn’t seen for ages.
Moreover, Mr. Boyfriend did a really good impression and everybody just loved him. But then again, how can somebody not love him?
We had all in all 10 days of neverending sauna (the weather was a hell), but apart from that everything else was simply great - and cheap, oh so cheap, I would gladly add!
And now some other big news: the university has officialy started, but I will tell you more about it in the next post about September (which hopefully will be published in time). Anyway, we had three days of the so-called “Welcome Fair”, and my start at the university was absolutely amazing.
The Campus is composed of many buildings which are all located, to my luck, in the centre of Helsinki (so when I have to run from Metsätalo to the Language Center, just to give you an example, I don’t have to run that much!). Both the staff and the teachers are super like really very nice, kind, efficient, fast and accurate with their answers.
The welcoming thing was really well organised, and in three days I got to know more students than I ever did in three years of studying in the University of Milan. So, clearly everything is going perfectly here!
I also want to add that, while ransacking my closets back in Italy, I’ve found two pairs of shoes and some cool clothes I didn’t remember to have. Well, that was a good and much appreciated surprise!
And now - really fast before we go buying the last things we need to have in the new house before moving there - here the lessons that this August 2014 has taught me:
- Happy belly, happy girl.
- Do not forget to be grateful.
- Remember the lessons learned.
- Ask and it is always given.
- Make the shit happen.
- I belong to Finland.
And now, welcome September, it’s just day number 11 and I’m already in love with you!
