Noora heart Iron Sky

Yesterday UK finally released Iron Sky for cinema, and obviously I had to be there to see it. I had waited for this movie as long as they had been making it, so my expectations were high. And oh my god, it was so worth the wait! I had the most stupid grin on my face during the whole movie and I was hardly able to sit still! Rob probably got deep scars on his wrist because I was squeezing my nails in so hard... Something about my excitement tells probably the fact that my thigh got a cramp within the first 5 minutes of the movie, I was just over the moon that I was finally able to see the movie. If anyone has not seen it yet, WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN WAITING FOR?! Oh dear, I still smile like a such an idiot when even thinking about the movie, it was just wonderful!

Also, the Aberdonian sun surprised me again. I was sitting on a lawn for an hour yesterday and I think that I've burned my back.. And I wore sun screen! This happened a couple of weeks ago as well when I burned my decollete after a stroll on the beach. Oh well, I'm not going to enjoy too much of that weather anyway as I still have so much to read before the exams, and having four work shifts this week does not really relieve the stress... Today starts my "no sleep before 3rd of June"-marathon, and after exams I'll probably sleep for couple of days in a row.

Domesticated.

(Warning, this entry is on my thoughts of being in a relationship.)

Now that I've found myself in a relationship, I've found some very odd characteristics in me. Even though this is not even that old relationship, I think that I need to put my thoughts on writing. To begin with, I feel like I've been domesticated, and the most weirdly, I really don't mind. I've never been a relationship-seeking person and I've been completely fine being just by myself. I've always hated the word "single" because it sounds like there's something missing from it and I'm definitely complete as myself. I still have to get used to saying that I have a "boyfriend" (it was actually really hard to say for the first time, because it just sounds so odd to me), and being called "girlfriend" (or other "nicknames", I can't get myself saying them). Luckily hearing "girlfriend" is a lot easier than in previous occasions, when I've been on the brink of panic attack after hearing that. And the more I think about it, the less odd it starts to feel. As long as it won't become one of my descriptive characteristics.

Despite linguistics and semantics, relationship statuses always seem like a bit stigmatised and I hate being labelled to anything. However, I've noticed that I'm disliking it less and less so far, getting me into conclusion that I might be a relationship person after all. In the end, I feel comfortable and like I said, almost domesticated. It almost bothers me that this doesn't bother me :D I've always thought that I'm extremely independent and stubborn to be comfortably in a relationship. Though it could be that in this case I don't need to restrain these characteristics in me. I might have tried to restrain myself too much previously. 

I guess I should stop worrying about meanings of words and just enjoy the ride.

And just so this wouldn't be too cheesy and syrupy entry, here's something completely different:

"It's only right that you should play the way you feel it"

I'm finally done with this semester, only exams left. My politics essay was horrible, but it is over and now there's the revision to focus on. I found out that I got extremely poor mark from my IR essay, which means that I need to get 18 or more from the exam... Which I know is not going to happen. Luckily that's about the only worry in my life right now, everything else going extremely well (or who can complain when getting breakfast to bed on a slow Saturday morning?). I just can't wait to go home for Midsummer!

Last week I was mainly writing my essay and working (and maybe a pint or a drinking game here and there, and ice hockey!), and after that I allowed myself to have the weekend off from uni work. On Monday I managed to do the hardest part of going to Indonesia, resigning from my current job. I was so nervous when I went to talk to my boss, and the whole conversation was over in two minutes. I was so relieved to do that, though I will definitely go back there if they have an opening in September. In addition, my comic book geek-supervisor loaned me couple of his The Avengers-comics, so I can get into the original story now.

 On Saturday I had a long walk with Ragnhild by the beach and to bridge o' Balgownie, where I hadn't been since first year. I don't know why I hadn't made it there earlier, considering how much time I spent there during first year. When we made it to bridge we saw seals playing in water! I'm not sure if I've seen them before there, so it was very exciting :) And it is so beautiful over there! It's nothing like the rest of Aberdeen. On beach I remembered again how important water is to me. I was standing in the sea with up to my knees soaking wet jeans, and I could not have been happier. Before I noticed that a wave was approaching my shoes and I had to run to save them before Poseidon collected them.

This week I've been mainly doing everything else than revision, like buying flight tickets to home, working out Indonesia stuff, swimming, going out... That usual.



I've had this song in my head for a week now... Though it's an amazing song!

Jos elät keskinkertaisuuden säännöillä, et voi kuin hävitä.

This week has gone by so fast! But I have no idea what I've been doing...

On Tuesday we managed to organise a small Vappu picnic with couple of people and it was actually really nice. Had some drinks in a sunny park with good company can never go wrong. After that we went to see the Avengers and I have to say that it was such a great film! I don't care what happened in the movie, but with that male casting you can't go wrong :D After movie we went for "couple of drinks" with Rob and Sarah, which equals coming home at 3 am... The next day I was so tired that I just hated the world too much to be social, which is probably why I got those flowers later that day...


Thursday and Friday I was working, on Saturday I was trying to start my last essay of the year, but then I met Anneli in library and well, it didn't happen. Saturday evening was another movie night, and now I can't understand why I haven't watched Fawlty Towers and Blackadder more, they're brilliant! I got home again at 3 am and forgot to look for that "supermoon" that was supposed to be on the sky last night :(


While reading for my essay I realised that it's probably the first time during this year when I DON'T have to think hard and guess the meanings of what I read, but I know exactly what the texts are on about. I probably should have chosen philosophy for my major (though it's completely useless degree, so it's probably better this way), as the essay is about justice theories and basically just moral philosophy. AND IT'S SO EASY. After IR theories I've been wondering what happened to the philosophical base I built during high school, but now I've found it again! Because of this I can't really stress too much about this essay, though I probably should.

I should start looking for visa and other stuff for Indonesia soon, so excited!!

For all you ladies out there:

Something to brighten this Saturday evening,



So far I've noticed a man, a kitten and a spoon from this ad. Apparently there's some beverage included as well?

You know I live my life like a gypsy.

The secret destination for this summer is....

*drum roll*

 INDONESIA!!!


I got confirmation today that I have been offered an internship in an international school for teaching English and helping marketing that school from July to end of August. Which means that I can go to Finland for midsummer!!! Most of you probably know how devastated I was last year because I wasn't able to spend it in a proper way, though a city midsummer fest in Reykjavik was a lot of fun as well.

To make my day even better, I received a real letter from Minna! (Mie vastaan mahollisimman nopeesti :) )

Also, I got flowers last night, which was really not expected, but I'm definitely not complaining. I don't think that I've ever gotten flowers just for the sake of it before...
