I'm in!

First of all, I got in to study media at Tampere university of applied sciences! Wow, I feel great. All the stress is now gone! yay! I even got applied to study computer science at another university, but I'm not sure which one I'm going to. (I think I'm going to try media and see how it goes... I don't want to lose the opportunity!)

I still have three weeks of work to go, after that my vacation starts! lots of great stuff happening in the summer.

My new cell phone! It's shiny and pretty. I hadn't bought a new phone for 7 years, but I finally decided to buy one xD

My new love ;_; The cutest backpack I have ever seen. That is why I just had to buy it.

Cute cute cute!

The obligatory speed paint. xD

Just another day

Summer's approaching and I already feel the energy! Lots of cool stuff coming ahead - I'll get to hear if I get to study where I want, moving away from home and two weeks in Crete!

I love sunsets. I heard that since the volcano erupted in Iceland, there should be some cool sunsets. I hope so!

We spent the weekend in Helsinki to see some friends with my boyfriend. We stopped by at my grandparents' summer cottage and drove through beautiful places!

Some more cherry blossoms!

One and a half week till my graduation party, I can feel the stress (And my skin feels it too, oh all the zits!!)
I got my dress today too, but I won't show it yet ;)

Oo! My first game-related post. (I'd want more, though!)

I finished Portal 2 a few days ago (I know, I know, I'm late but I really haven't had the time)

I have to say, it was a very, very entertaining! I have to say it was better than the first one, although a bit on the easy side.

Because of my Portal 2-hype, I made a few fanart speedpaints:

"I've been waiting..."
How can this NOT be your favourite character in the game?
"Well done. Here come the test results: "You are a horrible person." That's what it says: a horrible person. We weren't even testing for that."

This lovely box wasn't featured enough ;_;

I know some people hated this guy, but I guess my sense of humor is so simple I cracked up everytime he opened his.. err.. robot mouth.

Wow, watching ice hockey really boosts your inspiration up, haha. (It just keeps you on the computer, lol) Yay for Finland 8)

Anyways, here's my drawings from this night! All of these took 3 hours in total. Feelsgood, I haven't drawn for a long time.



...and blue!

My friend let me use her sculpting stuff today, so I made this up. xD It's my character takeshi. It was my first time using this type of stuff, so the result is what it is, haha.

Before the painting...

Painted with acrylics! The eyes came out creepy, gotta fix that :D

I need to go to sleep now, good night =)

Look! The cherry trees in Turku blossomed a few days ago. They gave me a great start for my work day!

Walking from my car to the office at 8:30, I just stopped to enjoy the sunshine and warmth.

We had a picnic with my boyfriend to celebrate the warm weather. Yummy!

Waiting for summer makes you go crazy! :P

I'm waiting for the Eurovision song contest which is on Saturday - and I hope Finland get's to fight for gold in ice hockey. Lots of TV-watching it is, then!

Mother's day

I'ts been a very sunny and warm sunday - a perfect one to spend mother's day!
I spent the whole afternoon at my sister's, I drew a card for mom and had a nice time with my nieces :)

My 8-month-old niece had fun on the swing

Here's the card I made for mom, there's all of us "children" in the picture :)

And here's how it looked finished =) I used a 0,7mm mechanical pencil, it took about 3 hours to make.

My sister made a delicious cake with lots of strawberries!

Have a nice day :)

Time to relax

Because I promised myself I wouldn't do a post without a drawing:

(Also, I still haven't found my graduation dress - I haven't even been looking for it, haha.)

The last week has been a very stressy and busy one - so I've had no time to update. Now I can again! I feel very relaxed now and finally feel I have time for my personal stuff.

My entrance exam to the media programme in Tampere was on Tuesday. I think I've never stressed as much before, and I don't really know if it made my performance better or worse, lol. I spent the previous evening alone at the city relaxing at the hotel - some sushi and a movie, what could be better?

I'm on a traaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaain! I like trains. I usually just sit the whole journey and look at the pretty houses outside 8)

This week is my official SUSHI week! I ate sushi three times this week, oh my. Today we did some ourself (so much cheaper!) and I think we counted 95 maki + about 10 nigiri. (I still can't cut fish properly). I've been doing sushi regularly for the past 2 years or so, it's kind of our "special" thing we do with my boyfriend :) And I learn something new everytime!


We made maki from salmon, tuna and cucumber. This time we kept it simple!
