I got some kind of anxiety attack on last Monday, so trying to trick my subconsciousness I've kept myself quite busy this week. Today is the first day during this week when I don't have anything planned or I haven't been that social, but I guess it's okay.
On Tuesday we had an international pot luck thingy in our dorm, so I made, what sounded the easiest and actually was it, gravlax for it to represent Finland and other Nordic countries. Unfortunately I don't have picture of my dish, but it was surprisingly good. And other people actually liked it too! A lot of them came to get more of which I was extremely surprised. I also kind of hoped that no one would like it and I could eat all of it myself, but that didn't happen and I only got couple of extremely small pieces of left overs.
On Thursday was Diego's going away -party, which was a great night, but surprisingly the next morning wasn't that great.. It's weird how feminine it makes you feel when you have high heels that violate your feet so that after one night you can't use anything else but sandals for the rest of the week.
Friday I got my inner ice hockey fan out and watched couple of NHL play-offs with Neesha. I had a moral dilemma between Nashville Predators and Anaheim Mighty Ducks because so far my team has been determined by the amount of Finns in the team. This time both teams had Finns, so it was harder. Eventually I chose Nashville and luckily they won. I was surprised how quickly 3 hours can go by without realizing it. Because Hee Joo was out of town for the weekend, and I had the room for myself, I was extremely radical and went to bed early (for me, not probably early for someone else).
On Saturday I finally got to go to the Zoo with OIPS. I think the pictures are the best to tell about it, though I feel kind of bad, because most of the animals looked quite sad and bored.
(No, I don't like cats)
This week I surprised myself by socializing with other people in my dorm and made even dinner with some of them on Wednesday. One could say that it's about time since I'm leaving in 3 weeks. Also, the title refers to my face, because on Friday I saw a friend and we talked about and hour outside, in direct sunlight. During this time I managed to burn my right side completely, and my face looks like I got a proper bitch slap from someone (even after 2 days there's a distinct difference between my left and right cheek). Of course the rest of the weekend has been cloudy so I couldn't go out and get my left side some sun.
