Wellcome to get to know Finland and Finnishness, as well as the world of 80's and 90's childhood memories, dreams, dance, gymnastics, baking and other interesting topics. Jump along the dance girl's journey!
I was gonna made a post of dancing with the stars semifinals which should have been on Sunday. I was waited this semifinal episode a whole week and then when Sunday finally came, I went to net and clicked the show on. Then I realized that actually isn’t semifinal episode at all. There was just an episode where judges did memorize the best dances of previous seasons. Later when I was searching on net, I found the news about this. There were said that someone on Dancing with the stars team had covid -19 virus and that’s why the semifinal episode was cancelled.
I’m disappointed that I couldn’t see my favorite vlogger: Miisa on the dancefloor as every sunday! Let’s see if DWTS can move on or will they quit it. Actually they shouldn’t even start the show this year. It would have been better if they just had decide not to show it but they did, and now when I have been watching it every week, what a pity it would be if it ends unfinished. Well, just have to wait and see.
Earlier on this season there were covid -19 case on one of the DWTS orchester members and they did switch the orchester for a week. Now only two weeks after that another case of the virus occured…
This covid -19 have totally ruined my life in every possible way. It almost have took my mentall healthy away too and I know I’m not the only one who feels this way. Maybe you too are feeling this way, or are you? Are you as worried than I am now when I’m almost loosing my mind because of the fear (specially now when this covid-19 have started to spread here in Finland too?)
There is not much else to do than only pray to God to make this end and make the world normal again…on the meantime we can try to relax with watching these beautiful dance shows…maybe it helps…even a little!
If I have to do it myselves, which is hard, I would give 3,5 but actually I should ask you cause everybody likes their own work (or if not, they should). What’s the point to write otherwise…One thing that makes me uncertain is english language. It’s not my motherlanguage and I’m not sure how well I write in english…
2)Define the meaning of life and your purpose
I think the meaning of life is to learn and grow as human. We can make ourselves always better and when that’s your goal, you can’t go wrong!
3)Your role model and why you choose the person
My mother. She has always been my big support and got me for a better mood! We have had so fun together! She’s warm hearted person!
4)Your humanitarian values to the society
Every social class should be noticed and taken care of. There shouldn’t be a big gulfs! Young and old (and all in the middle) should be noticed as well and them all should be taken along to society. Sometimes I feel like there’s more curses and more events for younger people. Those should be arranged also adults (40+ people). Also I wish we could help all people with weaker status, like those who have no opportunity to studying or poor young women who got to get married soon and give birth to limitless amount of children…and the judgements should be more fair like rapists often survive with small sentences what’s so wrong!
5)Your priorities in life
Health is absolutely the most important thing in life. (You realize it, when you starting to loose it!) My spouce, family and friends are surely important too and financial management is also very important so that you can pay your bills and rent and buy food! (Everything else is just extra).
”Money may not make you happy, but it relaxes you” as my father used to say!
6)What do you value in relationships
Trust, caring and openess is the most important things. You have to speak to your spouce about everything. Then you will become closer and understand better each other! Also you should have about same values. If we’re talking about the most ideal relationship, then argumenting should be constructive and you shouldn’t be blaming each other when arguing. Like I said, this is the ideal but not very often be realized in real life…
…and last but not least you sure should have fun together!
7)Your concerns to this present world
I think the no1 thing which concerns evrybody right now, is covid-19. This is the thing I’m very worried. Now this virus have started to spread here in Finland badly too and I think I will loose my mind if we’re not getting the vaccine soon! I’m always so scared when I’m in the air of people even in grocery store where I rotate everyone from afare…but then other people are not so careful and sometimes come to my space…and almost always someone is coughing…I’m just praying for God we could get the normal life back!!! Not nearly everyone is even using masks. I’m begging you, pleace use the mask! Everybody should do that now (if you’r not too sick)!!!
8)Are you a successful blogger and why you chosen this platform
No I’m surely not…yeat! Hopefully some day I will be!
I’m better writer than speaker. By typing you can just say so much more than you ever will when you speak! More specificly I don’t really know why exactly this (wordpress) platform. I think it was simple to get start and simple to use and well known so it was easy to find (name that came first on my mind).
9)Whats your contribution for others
I have two aspects for this:
My blog, where I can share my thoughts and values with others and hopefully give something to think about.
My caretakeing job is other way for me to give my contribution to my customers with the help I’m giving them in their everyday life.
In addition to this I helped my parents when they got older and weaker. Now my mom is in nursing home and my father is in heaven.
10)Empathy or sympathy, which one you opt and why
It depends on situation. Very hard to choose one but I think I’m usually more sympathetic than empathic person. It’s just more natural for me. It’s also about how person you’r with is reacting but I don’t know if it’s because we finnish people don’t show so openly how we really feel and even if you’r totally broken, you don’t easily show it to others. That can impact to other persons reactions when she/he thinks that person with you is ok. Then the empathy will not show. That’s quite sad!
11)Self Introduction or self assessment
I’m also ambivert (like Soni said). I love nature, specially on summer time… so I’m summer child like it’s said. I wake up from hibernation on spring time when sun will shine and flowers start to bloom…on the contrary I hate darkness. Winter can be beautiful if there’s snow which there’s not very much on these days (in Helsinki) but there’s still too dark (and cold). Darkness makes me sad and depressive…but one thing what’s great to do then (or any day really) is gourmandism. That’s what I also love. Then I do love photographying, writing and dancing too! Those are the best things in life!

The most unforgettable November
I can still remember when it was November. I’d been so lonely before you only. I met you there in place where you took my soul on one gray November day.
I’m surprised how easily this came on my mind because english is not my mother language and I always thought I could never write english poems. Well, I’m not 100% sure if there’s some grammatical faults again…but I wonder if there’s room on the poems for the artist view. Right?
I found this video on YouTube about week ago and I wanted to share this with you. This is awesome video! You should definetly watch this! (The beginning is boring but just wait a second. It will get better, trust me…)
I’m sure you’ve seen many Titanic dokuments, interviews, movies and so on and maybe you think this is the same again. You know what happened. They hit the ice berg and Titanic sunk. You’ve heard that story…but this is different…
Could I be one of them?
When I was younger I often saw a dream where I was on the boat and that boat was sinking. Last time when I saw that kind of dream was before our latest boat trip.Luckily nothing happened… but who knows maybe I was on Titanic in my previouslife…That could be the reason for my dreams and for my strong feelings while watching this video…😉
This video brings you to Titanic like you’ve been there yourself with all those people. You can feel the spirit of that time. You can feel what it was like to be bourgeois (woman) and dance viennese waltz at salon at the time when women were women and men were real gentlemen. You can feel how you’r flowing on the dance floor when those gentlemen will skillfully take you (like I always wanted to flow-but what is almost impossible to get to experience today). It was fascinating time! (I would love to visit there if I could have time machine).
You can also feel the growing panic. You can feel the despair and how it feels when you know you might not see tomorrow.
One thing I can’t understand. Why they left the lifeboats half empty? What’s the reason for that? On this video you can hear how they were told to turn back but they didn’t. They just said: ”it’s our life now, not yours anymore”, and rowed away. Quite cruel but panic makes many of us cruel. Everyone just wants to survive.
This 112 years ago happened tragedy is still fascinating and I think it always will be.
(*If you like classic/viennese waltz music, you will love this!*)
With this post I’m taking part to this poem challenge above.For the first time I wrote a poem in english so pleace for give me if there’s some grammatical faults!
Anyway, these are my thoughts about November. November is the most gloomy month in year. It’s dark, (usually without any decent (or more permanent) light brought by snow). It’s usually also cold and nude (I mean nature is nude without leaves on trees and without flowers or any kind of colors). Everything is black and white. I’ve always hate November. It makes me sad and depressed.
So these thoughts I have (almost) every year when November comes but this year November is even more darker. This year have been very heavy (ofcourse to all of us) because of this pandemic but for me also personally. Therefore, this poem became really gloomy!
Darkness inside my mind, darkness outside. Side by side, together they are. Side by side, fear takes the peace of my heart.
November is comfortless. November overflowes.
I wanted to link one more song here. Does anyone still remember this? One of the 90’s classics. I liked this song by then (and yes it’s still beautifull, still working). I was tvelve years old when this became. Can’t believe it’s already 28 years ago…
Well that’s everything from me by now. Take part in this great challenge too!
