✖ Ed Sheeran | Helsinki-Malmi Airport 240719

Thursday, 25 July 2019

Honestly, I never thought this day would come. The day when I get to see an artist, that I look very much up to. The thing is, I don't listen to Ed Sheeran on a daily basis, but he's got some songs that have travelled with me to a bunch of places and memories. And another thing is, and there's simply no denying it, the man has talent.

It's amazing what one can do with just an acoustic guitar, pedal and with his voice. The thing about the pedal is, that you can loop different sounds together and what I managed to count he once had 8 loops going on at the same time. And when it comes to loops, you need to time them precisely or otherwise, it will end up sounding like shit, and the dude knew his loops.


It was such an amazing gig to watch.
The weather was flipping amazing.
And for a few hours, everything was completely fine in the world.

✖ one broken bone and a few other things from the weekend

Monday, 22 July 2019

Howdy there, you lovely lot.
I've gone in total radio silence for the weekend when it comes to this blog but it's a new week and new shenanigans ahead of us, right?


Let's throw it back to the weekend, as it sure was an eventful one. Oh boy, like really an eventful one.

We arrived at my mum's place on Friday and managed to be there for an hour when J announced he fell with my younger brother's scooter and can't set any weigh on his left foot anymore. It ended up being swollen, and he wasn't able to move his toes anymore so we drove down to the local hospital in Pori where they told him that he actually managed to break his bone during the fall.

One broken bone didn't stop him attending to Pori Jazz festival with us though, and we managed to get a long lost picture of me and my friend at the premises. Christina Aguilera was performing there that evening and I'm still kind of sad I didn't go to see her perform.


Saturday was spent taking things a bit slower, even though my friend held a festival themed birthday party at her cottage in Nakkila. It was super fun, despite the fact that I had minor anxiety on seeing people I haven't seen in ages. It all went well though, despite the anxiety and I managed to have a lovely night out there.

How was your weekend? Did you break any bones, hehe? 

✖ Legoland Billund, is it truly worth a visit?

Thursday, 18 July 2019

In May, during our little road trip to Denmark, we visited in the famous amusement park which was all about those plastic bricks you step on in a dark room and try not to scream waking the owner of them up. You know, it's Legoland I'm talking about.

When you go to the Legoland with a 2,5-year-old you really don't get to see anything else than the small cities that are built from Lego's. I mean honestly, it's full-on five hours looking at the same boat going around the same river and trying to explain to that previously mentioned toddler why he isn't allowed to touch them when he keeps repeating how he really wants to play with them.

When you go there with a 2,5-year-old and a 10-year-old, the 10-year-old wants to go through every single roller coaster there is. And there are plenty. And the queues for them are long.


In general, Legoland was such a lovely experience. Even though it was a bit rainy and cold that day in May. However, the timing of our chosen visit could have been when the toddler is a bit older than he is now.v

Have you visited Legoland before?

✖ a hidden feature to spark up your Instagram stories | Instagram tutorial

Wednesday, 17 July 2019

Did you know about the hidden feature of Instagram stories? To be honest, I have no clue for how long this has been possible but I literally discovered it by accident yesterday. And in case if you didn't know, I'm planning on doing a small tutorial on how to lighten up your Instagram stories and use this cool feature. Since I'm the Insta que... What?

So, the point is to create stickers out of you pictures so you can add them multiple in the same story. Have you gotten frustrated when you add a picture on your Instagram story and can't change the background colour? Well, this fixes that problem as well. Leggo!


So here is what we want to achieve. A light background with a few pretty photos in it, right? It was actually a lot simpler than I thought and I cannot believe I hadn't figured it out sooner.


✖ step 1: choose the colour of the background
Choose the colour of the background, so far so simple, right? I went with white, as you can probably see.


✖ step 2: head over to the photo album on your phone
Pick a photo, and copy it. Simply just copy the picture you want to be added in your stories.


✖ step 3: go back to Instagram
You should see a small "add sticker" icon with the image you just copied on the left corner of your screen. Click it, and place it wherever you want it to be placed.


✖ step 4: REPEAT!

When you're ready, just publish the story.
Simple, creative and fun.

✖ healing

Happiness is not about getting all you want, it is about enjoying all you have.
A fun story from yesterday. I was having a chat with my new boss, in order for her to decide if they are going to continue to let me work there after the first few months. It's like this try-out time kind of a thing when they're still allowed to kick you out without a specific reason.

We went through everything about how I've adjusted in the new job, what I've learned and if there's still something I need to learn in order to work there. At the very end, she asked me how I've felt working there. In a way, I wanted to burst into tears but I managed to keep my shit together when I told her how burnt out I was when I started working there. I was completely drained out of the energy at my previous job, I've absolutely loved my time at the new one and I'm more than happy to stay there and continue working there because it has given me new energy. I've found a place where I belong, where no one thinks I'm weird if I say a few things too straight, where I get along with my boss (WOOP TEAM WESTERN-FINLAND), and where I can be myself without anyone judging or telling me how to be. And it's truly amazing. And I've enjoyed a lot.

I'm still healing, but at least I'm healing. Not getting worse.


Healing.
Healing, so I can be a better person around the people I love.
And be a better person around myself.
