Dreamy dreams of late

I’ve been a bit dreamy lately. The heat, things on TV and just laziness has been on my agenda lately. And writing fan fiction. Sometimes I don’t feel like doing things. But it’s summer and who have time to stay inside to read blogs. Or write them in this case. At least write decent blog posts. I also sleep late so I don’t have the time to do anything during the day. Besides, cooking dinner and sitting on the balcony because it’s too hot to sit inside, has taken all my time so I have been too tired to write any blog posts. Heat just makes me tired altogether.

Also, the movies theatres were opened again. I won 2 movies tickets earlier this year so I used them both. I went to see Star Wars: The empire strikes back and Bad Boys For life again. I’ve only seen the Star Wars movie on TV so it was nice to see it on the big screen. The safe distance in the theatre was 2 benches apart so you didn’t need to worry about the coronavirus. They don’t let in the same amount of customers inside the theatre as they normally do. I actually like this safe distance thing. I don’t like sitting close to someone else. You always only get one armrest and then you sit there feeling uncomfortably the whole movie. I usually go to the movies when there aren’t many people there. I buy my movie tickets online so I can choose where to sit. Or I get tickets for free. It’s not cheap to go to the movies. I belong to a movie club where you can get tickets a little cheaper from time to time. I also take part in a movie panel where you answer surveys and then you get money. They’re small amounts. Mostly under 1 euro. When you have at least 10 euros, you get a movie ticket. That’s how I got to go to the movies more often. I only watch movies I’m interested in.

And the last update of what I’ve been doing lately. I’ve been twice on a bike trip to pick up blueberries from the forest. They say there are a lot of blueberries but I didn’t find that many. It’s much harder to pick up berries than you would think. It would be easier to go to the store or the market to buy them. But when you pick them up yourself, you feel you’ve accomplished something. I got enough to put blueberries with vanilla ice cream though. When you walk around in the forest and try to search for berries, it takes time. Especially when you do it with your bare hand. The berries were quite small so I didn’t take them. It was like searching for a needle in a haystack. You almost need to crawl on all four because the berries are hidden under the leaves in the blueberry plant. There is a lot of bending down and then you’re not really alone. You get to fight off flies and mosquitos flying close to your ear. Then there is no wind in the deepest forest so you get sweaty as well. It’s totally exhausting to pick up berries. Somehow blueberries taste better when you picked them up yourself. I might go tomorrow for blueberry “hunting” to another place. Maybe they’ve already been picked. You won’t know if you don’t go and have a look.

Most people probably write on their blogs about this coronavirus but I will only say. I’m free from work until March 30 because the workplace is closed. Unless it changes. So in a way, it’s the same when I didn’t have a job. I could do something useful but why bother. Sleep is what I need and I wake up when I feel like it. I still get paid. I’m just gonna take advantage of this break. I’m glad I don’t need to wake up early for a while.

I didn’t have anything else to say in this post so stay safe and stay healthy.

Taking a break from my busy schedule

Helsinki Design School assignment 2018, Single cover. Got 3/5 from this ‘Colours’ project

I have 9 days to finish my school assignments so I haven’t written the next bit about my holiday in Playa del Ingles. But it will come. It will take just some time. I’m just taking a break from my busy schedule to write this post. Busy in a way that I also have other things to do and places to go.

I finally reached 600 followers on this blog so thank you so much. I never thought I would get that many but 4-5 years later here it is. Time goes so fast I lost count how long I have blogged. According to the stats, this is the 6th year. At least I gained some experience from something.

Besides school work in Helsinki Design School is to make a portfolio. It’s part of the education. I asked my classmates on Facebook if anyone has started theirs but no one had. So I’m not the only one. It’s nice to know there are others in the same boat so you don’t need to feel alone. We have 4 more meetings in school before the portfolio presentations. The school ends on June 15. There is still time. Until the deadline is coming sooner than you think and then you’re screwed. I hope it won’t come to that. I already thought about in what format it’s gonna be so that’s better than nothing.

So there is the update. I’m mostly busy with thinking about design so my mind is not in writing about my holiday. As soon as my assignments are finished, then I can write about that. Until then I’m a busy bee. Mentally.
