Onward to 2013 my steed!

I would first like to take a moment,
and congratulation everyone for surviving the end of the world.
So please,
give yourselves a pat on the back,
....
done?
good.

2012 was sort of a foggy blur,
it seems like such a long year,
but I can't recall anything 'major' that happened,
so I'm just going to call it a good year and move on, haha.
-------------

But!
2013 will be a very different year,
The year of Finland Adventure!

There was a lot of stress leading up to it,
but now that I'm here,
in my little shared flat in Helsinki,
it seems pretty relaxing :'D

I've already meet some awesome people from all over the world,
and we have so many events,
parties,
trips,
and grocery store adventures left to go!

The Student Union here is amazing,
so luckily I have people here to anwser my stupid my questions,
kolibri-chan & Kenshiro-FDP back home,
and you guys for giving me awesome links and events to check out :date:

I have my travel card!
So I'll be moving around as much as I can,
so if you're in the area and want to meet up,
and you're willing to answer stupid questions,
(there will be lots)
then let me know :'D

--

Like I mentioned before I'm planning on traveling Europe,
so hopefully I can meet even more people :'D

You are seriously lucky. I was able to see Helsinki for a day while on vacation and thought it was beautiful even if I did spend most my time in Porvoo which I recommend anyone who visits Finland to try and see if they like small towns.
Good luck with school and your travels.

Yeah, I'm excited for when it starts to get above the freezing temperature so I can explore Finland without a hundred layers on, haha.

Once I get comfy with my little area I'm going to try and get around Finland more.
This is when I really wish I had my car OTL

I don't think I'm going to go to Frostbite,
don't have enough time to plan hotel/badge/etc.
Though I should be able to go to Desu-Con in June if I can get everything sorted for that ^^

I know we have a trip to Lapland planned but that's North, North X'D

I wish I had my car...
traveling would be so much easier.

biiisti Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013
If you go to Lapland, or very high up North it will definitely be worth it :) i know, traveling by car is a lot neater than relying on public transportation. Although the trains run pretty smoothly, but it's just so damn expensive if you aren't a student :)

Happy new year! I hope it's not a icy and slippery there as it is here (seriously, the whole city could be used for ice-skating) and that you learn to enjoy all the weird Finnish customs. See you around, now that you're "in the neighborhood" xp
Reply
:iconvaldrein:
Valdrein Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013  Student Artisan Crafter

Well, I'm finding it slippery but the Finn's are not so I think it's just me. Since I'm also huddled in my blanket today because it's -10 outside and I'm a coward X'D

Yes!
I hope so ^^

-10...pffft, that's nothing.

Or, actually, I tend to hide inside as much as possible when it's like that as well, I'm not actually made for scandinavian weather xp

As for the slippery thing, you'll probably figure out the technique for walking on ice quickly enough, the ground can be a harsh teacher xp

Come back to the UK for a visit one day if you plan on travelling Europe. You never know, may have my own place by the time you visit and you can crash with me, save on hotels and such :D.
