October will be a month to take a closer look at things. Life, the world, yourself… but mainly the things around you. So, for the month of October i will share a photo with you everyday. A photo of something close up.

It is dark. It is wet, but still too early for snow. Maybe soon.

Thank you to everyone who took the test poll, i mean the 6 people who read my blog. I hope to have more  polls in the future. To the 3 people who said i was the cool friend… you rock. To the 1 person who said they were the cool friend but that i was pretty close to being cool… i can respect that. But to the 2 people who said i was lame.. a plague on both your houses.

First day of September = YAY!

I awoke this morning colder than usual. I thought i was getting sick again, but no. I usually sleep with my window open to let in some fresh air. This morning the temperature was 5 degrees! ( C, so only 5 degrees above freezing). 5 degrees above freezing! I did not expect such cold temperatures so soon. I mean its only September 1st. But id just like to say.. YES! THANK YOU! Everyone who knoes me, knows i dont like summer, i dispise being hot, and sometimes i even claim to hate the sun. I came to Finland with the impression that i would be surrounded by air so cold i could touch it, and snow so deep id be trapped in my house for weeks. I was told that id develope a hatred for coldness and id soon wish the sun would warm me. Id like to say that i proved everyone wrong by embracing the negative temperatures and piles of snow, but i can not. Do you know why i can not? Because it did not get cold. And it did not snow. The winter was pretty much how all my other winters were. ( i did however discover that my dreads freeze when damp) So! I am hopeful that it will in fact get cold, and that i will have piles and piles of snow!
