Off to Spain!

Hi guys!

I had this great plan to do a post about my packing, but because the project was as difficult for me as it always is, I didn't have any extra time so this pic from plane will just do it..

I'm in the plane atm, Spain as a destination!

I'm traveling with my 5 friends from school (plus two teachers). This trip is a part of a project called Comenius. 5 students from our Spanish class were chosen (well not more than six of us wante to go.. But better for me & my frineds ;). The theme of this trip and project is energy, so we had to make all kinds of projects about it and also videos and piwerpoint presenting our school and country. 

We're flying to Alicante and we're going to stay there one night in a hotel, the rest of the week we're going to live with host familys in Cartagena. I'm super excited to see the town, learn more Spanish, to do some shopping in stores which we don't have in Finland and specially meet all the new people and have great time with my amazing friends!

Moi kaikki!

Mulla oli loistava suunnitelma tehdä postaus mun pakkaamisista, mutta kuten aina, se projekti olikin vähä isompi homma nii ei pahemmin ylimäärästä aikaa jäänyt..

Olen juuri koneessa, määränpäänä Espanja!

Matkustan viiden koulukaverini (ja kahden opettajan) kanssa Comenius projektin matkalle, jolle valittiin Oppilaita Espanjan ryhmästämme. Projektin teemana on energia, joten teimme matkaa varten videoita ja kyselyitä ja esityksiä koulustamme ja Suomesta. 

Lennämme Alicanteen ja olemme siellä hotellissa yhden yön, loppu viikon olemme isäntäperheissä Cartagenassa. Ootan innolla lämpöä, uuden kaupungin näkemistä, Espanjan kielen parantumista, shoppailua Suomesta puuttuvissa kaupoissa ja erityisesti uusiin ihmisiin tutustumista ja mun ihanien ystävien kanssa chillailua!

Ihanaa viikkoa!

Let's all have a great week! ;)

getting ready for summer

T.G.I.F! This week I really waited for the weekend. The last days I slept way too little because I had to finish my geography work and today I slept in (luckily I got a ride to school so I was in time after all) , so I think that I'll spend tomorrow in my bed. I didn't do much more today either: I baked a mud cake, watched a movie and played PS (for example  GTAV which I got as a Christmas present, but there's no worry of me turning into a real PS nerd cause I'm terrible at the game!) .
I'm happy that Spring is not yet even here, because in a month I have to decide my high school (I'm not ready for that decision!) and in May I'll have to say bye to my class. But I love Summer, so I'm anyway really looking forward! And I'm already thinking of what to wear...
As  I might have told you, the sales were specially great this year! I'm happy with my founds and specially with their prices! I started getting ready for summer too, hopefully I'll still fit in them then..!
Ah, ihanaa että on perjantai, sitä onkin jo odotettu! Univelkaa on kertynyt mm. mantsan lopputyön takia sen verran paljon, että pommiin nukutun aamun ja koulupäivän jälkeen ahkerin tekoni oli mutakakun leipominen, muutoin makoilin sohvalla ja katsoin telkkaria ja pelailin pleikkarilla mm. joululahjaksi saamaani GTA vitosta. Harmi kyllä kyseinen peli ei vielä ihan suju...
Olen ihan tyytyväinen, että kevääseen on vielä aikaa. En nimittäin oo ollenkaan valmis yhteishakuun saatika sitten luokan hyvästelemiseen! Mutta silti ootan kesää innolla, ja mietin jo mitä kesäisiä vaatteita käyttäisisn...
Niinkuin taisinkin jo mainita, alet olivat tänä vuonna erityisen hyvät! Oon tosi iloinen mun löydöistä, ja varsinkin niitten hinnoista! Tuli jo vähän valmistauduttua kesään, toivottavasti vielä mahun niihin puolen vuoden päästä..!

extreme make over - room edition

How was your weekend?
I met my friends in Helsinki on Friday, on Saturday my friend -who I met at the language course last summer- came to my town and today I did some school work and visited our neighbours. Tomorrow it's back to school again.
I didn't have the time for this post before, but on Christmas break I got a present which I had hoped for many years: I got a new room! Well, it's still the same but with different colors and order. I had been thinking about dark red for a long time and decided that that was the one for me. I wanted something kind off darker and kind off warmer, and I think that this shade fills those requirements pretty well. What do you think?
.. & after

My book shelf, poster from France, VS bag for things and my Christmas box (yep, still there)

I got both the glass box (with notes to bring happiness written by my mom) and the thing for make-ups etc as a Christmas present from my mom

Details on my desk

Have a great week everyone!

Seasons Greetings

Hi Honeys,
Happy New Year!
I hope that your Christmas / holidays went great and that this year has started well! 
My Christmas break was wonderful, Christmas and New Year came way too fast and went way too fast, but were great anyway. In Finland we celebrate Christmas on December 24th, and in my family we have many traditions with my family and grand parents. This year also my aunt and her boyfriend were with us, it was lovely to spend the Christmas Eve with a bit bigger company.
In the morning we ate rice porridge with cinnamon and sugar and also an almond hid in there. I was again the lucky one and got the almond and the wish witch comes with it, sorry sis it's just luck! ;)
There's this TV show for children called "Joulupukin Kuumalinja" which comes every year on Christmas Eve. As long as I've known how to use the phone I've tried to call there to talk to Santa Claus, and cause I've never succeed I'm still trying!
When the show ended, we decorated the Christmas tree with my sister.
On the day we went to Christmas church and continued (the kitchen had been busy the whole day) preparing the Christmas dinner.
There was so much food. Seriously. We couldn't eat it all in three days!

I did the dessert with my grandma, and cause it was her idea I can say that it was delicious! It was really easy, and really good! Here's the recipe if you'd like to try:
When we had finished eating, it was time for the presents! Thank you so much once again for way too much  After opening the presents we played Trivial Pursuit, I just love playing board games with family!

On New Year's my friends from my class just appeared to our door with gingerbread dough and glog and we had an "after Christmas". The evening and the night I spent with my neighbours and my friends from the area, it was a good beginning for this year! In the morning of January 1st - yep, it was a short night- me and my sister went to Helsinki to eat a delicious brunch at our friends.
I also went skating, shopping (too much, luckily the sales in Finland are great) , did school stuff and random walks with friends and by myself and just enjoyed the holiday. Tomorrow I'm going to Vierumäki, a sports center. My parents, cousin, uncle and his wife are also going to be there. On Tuesday school starts again. I'd love to have holiday for couple more weeks, but it's also great to see everyone there.
Have a great weekend!
Love, Anna
