Gaming


What's more relaxing than video games? Not a lot of things for me. Maybe painting.

Anyhoo, I think I am really not going in the right direction with exams coming ahead in only a few weeks. We had a great leveling weekend in WoW with my brother, using recruit-a-friend and getting 3x exp.. I should've been studying, haha.

Elder Scrolls fan-girling in top image! Can't wait for Skyrim to come out.
That's my table with my brother's computer on the left and mine on the right. I think they're kind of cute...

B&W memories

I'm in a black and white mood.

Life's going so fast I have a feeling I can't stop. Looking at photos helps though. :)






'Till next time :)

Tallinn and cocktails

I spent the weekend in Tallinn.
Great city, I don't understand how I forgot to take pictures of the city, haha.
I really like doing cocktails, so I bought a few ingredients since it's so much cheaper than in Finland.

I tested out a few today and they were both great!

Here's Banjino Cocktail:
(3cl gin, 1cl banana liqueur, orange juice, Shake gin and liqueur in cocktail shaker, add to glass with ice and pour orange juice)

and Green Widow:
(4cl blue curacao, orange juice, orange slice, pour orange juice slowly on top of curacao and ice)


Plus, they're easy to make! ;)


Seeya soon!

Valentine's


Happy Valentine's!
Oh the irony that my net doesn't work on this very day. It doesn't consider me as a friend? Booo..

Speedpainting


It's a boring yet relaxing Saturday.
That's my blood elf wearing a kickass Tsanga's Helm that dropped from BoT. A 30-min speedpaint.

Oh and I got this done:

todoesday

The sunset was looking pretty cool when I came home today. Photo from a car, hence the blurriness.


I was supposed to study today. My plans weren't successful.
I did get a new trinket and thrown weapon though harharhar.

Sunny day

It's beautiful outside! I decided to go out with my camera but couldn't find my 50mm lens anywhere! (I'm not the most organized person, haha) That's unfair. I had to take photos with a sucky lens, ah well.

                                                       Behold:
THE SURVIVAL APPLE:

 Also, I got this idea of making a picture collage of the games I played a LOT when I was a kid ('till about 12 years old) They bring back so many memoeries. Especially when you have no idea what to do and just press buttons and still it's THE BEST GAME EVER. What are yours? I have more, but I wanted to keep it compact 8)
I do play some of them still, such as Diablo 2 and I just played FF9 a few months back.

Press any key to continue

I feel like it's the right time to do this.
I've wanted to create a blog for ages, to be honest. I just never got the right idea what I would actually put there.
I'm not a person who likes to talk about their personal life all over the internet. So I don't want this blog to be like that, either.

Instead, I want to share stuff I like, I do and I see. Photography and drawing are two great passions I have, and I felt that my website (http://www.koti.mbnet.fi/minelo) wasn't interactive enough. So I want to post some here.
I really like video games. Maybe you'll see some of my nerdy posts here once in a while.

I don't like reading walls of text, so I suppose you don't like either. That's why I'll be posting more pictures than text. Hopefully.

The blog's name is something that has been on my various websites and such for a long time. These amoeba-characters (like the on on the logo) are things I made up in summer 2007. I just wanted to draw something that would make me happy every time I looked at them. I guess I achieved my goal, haha.

To liven up this wall of text here is a picture from a game that has taken too much of my life recently:

Yes, Minecraft. This is one of my firsts, though. I just never remember to take a screenshot of stuff I do. Besides, I prefer survival mode.

And here's something that I'm working on.


To be continued. I hope to update this a few times a week!
