project 365: week three

015: I started last week in a mess of sewing things, make-up and stationery. (And to be honest it has stayed a mess, too.)

budapest: part one

In the autumn I took my mum to Budapest for a few days (because I am a great daughter). It was such a good time to go as well since the weather in Finland was getting colder but it was still reasonably warm in Budapest! I had been telling my mum I'd take her on a holiday since my graduation (so, 2015), but she's a weirdo and despite wanting to go places she never does and has an excuse for not going to every place I'd suggest. But somehow as I found cheap tickets to Budapest and organised everything else, she finally said yes. And we both loved the city.

moomins in tampere

A gloomy, gray autumn day in Tampere last year was, in fact, not that gloomy once we (we being my entire family) went to the Moomin Museum. In any case, I tend to enjoy gloomy days like this anyway and lately all my pictures have looked rather bleak and dark. And I definitely enjoy anything Moomin related. You aren't allowed to take photos inside the museum, apart from this one area in which I'm awkwardly standing next to a cardboard Moomintroll and a text saying anyone who eats pancakes with jam cannot be that dangerous (which is true and such a good, classic Moomin quote!).

project 365: week one

 I didn't do it last year (and noticed a clear decline in the number of pictures I took and honestly kind of missed it) so this year I've decided to do Project 365 again. Here's the first week and the beginning of my - at least - photo-a-day in 2018:

thursday thoughts pt. 48

This is something that was part of my yearly goals last year, and still continues to be one. I am certainly not the best with my sleeping schedule: before the Christmas holiday I found myself going to bed around 3am which is not ideal. I try to get up to 8h sleep every night, I try to go to bed before midnight, but as I have absolutely no routine and reason to be out and about come 8 o'clock, I've really come to struggle with going to sleep at a reasonable hour. I've been a bit better while visiting my mum, but still - I am currently still in my PJs and it's nearly 5pm. Please, tell me I am not the only one who is this bad at being an adult/reasonable and responsible human bean!

But this is what I'm trying to do. Early to bed and early to rise, so that I can be all the things I want to be in 2018 and every other year: healthy, wealthy and wise. If enough sleep can make a man all that, it'll surely give something extra to a woman, right? I'd be happy to just be these three things, though!

an unexpected pori trip

As I've been ill (but okay now!) coming from 2017 to 2018, I didn't manage to get any kind of reflective new year's posts or hopeful/inspiring 2018 goal posts done. To be honest, I didn't feel like it anyway as I can sum up it like this: 2017 left me feeling quite 'meh' and I only hope 2018 will be better! Which is why my first post of the year is this one that I hope the coming year will be like, too: a little trip to a little city that was a little bit lovely.
