It goes in waves

The last time I checked in here, I could feel the sun burning on my skin and I had just returned from one month in Vienna. Now, the yellow leaves are falling day by day from the maple trees in our courtyard. The sun is not that bright anymore.

This Autumn has been very calm, almost quiet after graduation. It is a strange yet familiar state-of-mind. Being in-between places. Waiting for something to happen.

In the meantime, I have been exploring and tried out new things. Like sketching again and going to dance classes. Also, going on events related to my career aspirations to get inspired and motivated.

Vienna in retrospect




A few days ago I was in Vienna, wandered in the heat with little clothes and mesmerized by the beauty of the city. I did overpack my suitcase, of course, with long sleeves and trousers that got barely worn. I think this was the first time I actually travelled alone. Or, going to a place I’ve never been before without knowing anyone.

It was nice to get away from Helsinki after handing in my thesis and just indulge in things that I liked. I’ve visited a couple of museums and did some trips while picking up some German. I’ve met more people in one month than I probably would during a year back at home. One could say it was quiet an intense month, but a great one.

Now I’m slowly getting back to reality and trying to figure out my future destination, because my graduation is just around the corner.


Thick sweaters, word counting and summer plans





Några vykort från de sista veckorna jag var i Stockholm.

Det var ett tag sedan jag uppdaterade. Jag har hunnit vara drygt en vecka i Helsingfors nu. Kommer att vara här i maj och juni för att skriva färdigt min graduavhandling. Jag har kommit lite igång men ska försöka få till ett skrivflow nästa vecka. Ser fram emot att sommarvärmen ska komma till Helsingfors, bär ännu ylletröjor och yllekappa i maj liksom. Jag har inte så mycket inplanerat nu, kanske en sväng till Österbotten under juni. Men i juli kommer jag att bo en månad i Wien så det ska bli kul!

It’s been a while since I updated. I’ve been about a week in Helsinki. I’ll be in Helsinki during May and June to finish my thesis. I’ve started writing slowly, but will try to get a better writing flow next week. I’m looking forward to warmer summer weather here, because I’m still wearing thick wool sweaters and coat in May. I don’t have so much planned out, will maybe go to Ostrobothnia during June. One nice thing! I’ll stay one month in Vienna.


Tueday 9 pm



Utanför fönstren blåser hårda vindar. Här inne laddar jag upp bilder från sommaren, från värmen, från dagar då huden var alldeles glansig av svett. Tänker ofta på sommaren. Tänker speciellt på tunna klänningar och bara ben. Om några veckor kanske. Tänker ibland på framtiden och karriär. Det finns mycket jag skulle vilja lära mig ännu. Jag har planer till några dagar in på augusti, sen är det väldigt öppet ännu vad som händer.


There are stormy winds out there, meanwhile I’m uploading pictures from the summer, from sunny days when my skin was glowing of sweat. Thinking about the summer, and thin dresses and bare legs. Maybe in a few weeks. Sometimes I’m also thinking about the future and career. There’s still a lot of things that I would like to learn. I’ve got plans until a few days in August, but after it’s quiet open what will happen.
