♫Happy Birthday to me♫ And to Wentworth Miller. And my celebrity twin, actor Zachary Quinto. Born the same year as well. Of course ♫Happy Birthday to you♫ who’s ever birthday it is today. Birthdays are not the way they used to. When you’re a kid it’s a big deal but not so much when you get older. You don’t even need any presents. All you want is peace in the world and stop the hate. Everyday and not only birthdays.

racism is never ok

It’s unbelievable that racism still exists in our society. Not only discrimination against the coloured but also different sexualities, disabled and even age discrimination. What is so difficult to respect people who are different from you? I just don’t get these people who spread hate. How would the world look like if everyone was the same? You don’t need to agree but using violence is stupid. They act like spoilt brats who’s parents never loved. Even if your parents were rotten, it doesn’t mean you have to act the same way. Some people live in the past and it’s pathetic. Everyone has the right to be here and even those haters but please don’t spread it around because you got issues. The worst problem is an attitude problem. I’m glad I’m not one of those people. It’s a waste of energy to hate anyway. Love is all you need, right? If people loved more there wouldn’t need to be a curfew but now because these idiots, people aren’t feeling safe.

This won’t spoil my birthday. Even if nothing much will happen. Only good food and easy evening. So happy birthday to me. Stay safe and don’t let these circumstances let you down.

Summer bloom in Finland

Summer is coming to Finland or it’s actually here already. Today (May 26) it was over 20 celsius outside. People wearing shorts but they probably would anyway even if it wasn’t. Brave little folks, they are. The most irritating thing about this summer talk is the media bragging about how hot it’s gonna get soon. Well, I don’t want it and it’s not lovely at all. You can shove it up there with your heat records. I hate the word ‘helle‘, which means ‘heat‘ in Finnish. Every year it’s the same praising like that’s something new. There has always been warm weather here at this time of year. Maybe people forget so they need a reminder. I rather not hear about it, thank you very much.

Summer has it’s downsides but also good things. One of them is a bloom in a lot of places. Flowers, plants or whatever you want to call it. Also, there will be leaves on the trees so when it’s hot, there are shadows where you can go under. Summer used to be my favourite season but not so much anymore. When you’re a kid, things are different. At least you don’t have to feel cold. Summers would be nice if it wasn’t hot and the media wouldn’t go on about how lovely it is. If it rained all summer I wouldn’t care. I would welcome it. Without water, there wouldn’t be any blooms anywhere so people should stop being so morose when it rains.

Next week it’s my birthday (June 2) so after that, the Autumn can come. Nothing would matter after that. This summer will be different though because then I’ll be in my part-time job. If and when I go back next week. Then there is the 2 week summer holiday which I never had. Except in school but that was different then. I’ve been in a job in summer before but then that wasn’t a paid job. Holidays are just a time when you don’t have to go to work. It’s like being unemployed but you get paid for it. There won’t be much travelling this summer anyway. It would be nice to go somewhere but this summer you can’t. I wouldn’t even want to as long as the coronavirus is going on. It’s better to stay home than get infected. Either way, there will be a bloom everywhere that will keep our spirits up.
