Hi, you remember me?

Hola queridos! It’s been a while. It’s been a very packed while. In these past three months (?? crazy how fast time has flewn!) a lot has happened; I did my first entrance exam, I graduated from high school, I worked full time as an office assistant, I fulfilled the terrible twenty, I went to Louisiana, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia and Miami, met all the most important people in my life from two years ago, got back to Finland while crying about honestly just wanting to stay on that other side of the world, completely lost sight of myself for a while, questioned everything, kinda figured everything out, started liking Finland again, went to teo music festivals, found myself an apartment, did a few roadtrips and spend all the rest of the time with the people I love the most enjoying Finnish summer with friends and family. So yeah, I’ve got a lot to tell!

I’ll be back with pictures about graduation, of my new apartment (when I get to move in on the first of september and then make it look presentable), of our epic trip back home and of everything that’s been happening lately, but for now here’s a few of my favourites from the past months. After I’ve edited and published them we’re probably home already from Jyväskylä where I was visiting my grandparents, and I’m going straight to sleep. I have a ton of things to do (of course eh) but no clear weekly schedule yet, and it’s also kinda fun! At least I’m trying to make the most out of it, even if I’d also like to be a responsible adult and have everything working out on paper and in real life.. and I’ll get there! Just don’t look at my bullet journal right now haha, too many unfinished tasks still waiting ! But it’s not the first time I’m there, yet it’s the first time I’m kind of excited about it even! Yay I’m growing up mom & dad!

I’ll be back soon this time, it’s a promise xx Hopefully you’ve had a lot to smile about lately! (if not, go buy chocolate, you deserve it)
