Saying bye to snow, loads of work & a lil fun :)
14.10.2010 - 18.10.2010 -1 °C
The last few days have been mellow for me. I have so many things to do just for my Finland courses that thinking about it exhausts me. I have 5 courses at UEF that run till November/December and I have 4 courses at the Savonia Design Academy so its too much for such a short time. The saddest thing about it is that most of the independent hours I spend on them force me to neglect my Masters thesis and its not good, causes me to stress more. The other thing about my thesis is that at this crucial time where I want to burn myself and finish, I dont seem to get lotsa interaction with my supervisors as I dreamed when I left South Africa. I know they try their best, and maybe I expect too much? I just hoped they would make me run around a lot with small deadlines to build up this huge thing.....anyway, maybe I should start driving myself more.
The snow came and it went! Superb experience it was, some snow chunks can still be seen here and there and there is a weather rumor (I dont follow weather channels, the element of suprise does it for me! ) that the snow might come back next week Thursday! NICE! I had fun everyday seeing landscapes covered in white. At the same time the poetic inner me could not help notice the shocking contrast in the environments;from a thick warm green sight to a happy and bubbly yellow-leaves one then suddenly to an extra silent,naked and still snow covered one....a beau and a sad tone at the same time. Things become so still and sad when there is snow, like a beautiful lady wearing an amazing evening gown that hides scars of abuse....U see what you are meant to see. Ok, too much of a writer in me coming out now! lol! I can write for days on end! Well I took some few more pics before the snow ran away:
And more pictures taken! This was an exciting time for me!
There are a lot more pics, but I dont want to bore you with lots or to show all my cards! heheheehe..all this time here and I had these experiences, I wished my fiancée Monty was here. I miss her lots but atleast I am left with a week to get back to her. Hopefully someday I will come back to Finland with her and show her all these places she has seen on my pictures....I am to do that for her, she has been supportive of me all these 90 days here.
