On Monday monring we found a plastic tree in our common room in the office, it had a sign on it that said "Please decorate me!" and decorate him we did! :D I'm especially proud of that golden star on top because I made it from a garland without any wire or anything like that, hehe :)All that Christmas decoration is really getting me in a festive mood, but as soon as I'm back in the student hostel I'm bored and lonely again :'D
As the date of my journey home approaches, I'm slowly starting to realize that I'm actually a bit scared. I haven't been "home" for four months now, and even though I still was in touch with my mum, friends and boyfriend thanks to the internet, I am a bit scared of what might have changed while I was gone. But I am definitely looking forward to it. I am very glad I don't have to spend a lonely, sad Christmas here in Finland, where the only option would be to go to a party with lots of wasted, noisy people. Bleh.
Talking about wasted and noisy people! Funny things happened last night when our floor was having another kitchen party. So this morning I was pretty surprised to see the kitchen in a moderately tidy state but THEN I saw THIS:
7.30am in the morning, I was like: Nooo this didn't happen, no. The stupidity...
The longer I think about it, the happier I am that I'm about to get away from this place. On the other hand, I'm sad because I will definitely miss the snow! We have tons of tons of snow here at the moment! And it keeps on snowing even more :3 I really love it and I still keep up the hope that there'll be a white Christmas in Austria too!
Today at work there was a small Christmas party with cookies and glögi.
My thesis is also progressing... pretty nicely actually. I already have 30 pages, so even if the next experiments won't work out I can get enough pages by simply writing about why it didn't work. It's a win-win-situation :D I got a cell line from our partner institute so right now I'm trying to keep the little ones alive till Friday, hoping the stress of the transport didn't affect them too much and they will grow well, then I can freeze them over the Christmas holidays and start with the real work in January.
Other than that, nothing much is happening. I am bored with myself most of the time, I somehow wish I was in Helsinki because there's just so much more I could do, maybe then I'd also be more motivate dto actually do something :< I draw a lot lately and since at least some of you seem to like to see my art, here is what I was working on yesterday:
She's listening to one of my favorite songs at the moment: Unfolding Time by Broken Iris. Check them out, they are more than awesome.
There's so much I'd like to improve at! I wish I was better at poses, facial expressions, faces in general, backgrounds, atmosphere, dynamics..... well, I just have to practice more. And one day, maybe my pictures will finally start to tell a story :)
I also updated my animexx account but I can't help but dislike that page and community. It is too big and crowded. Somebody wrote me a message asking about my pictures and we talked a bit, then they asked me for my skype and I gave it to them because I thought it would be easier to chat that way - I ended up deleting them just a day later because honestly that person was just weird. First they had no information on themselves whatsoever on their profile, then they were behaving like a 13-year-old-kawaii-but-mysterious-girlie-chan with all that stupid *expression of action under asterix* writing, writing disturbing stuff about wanting to hug me and whatever. Sorry, but that was something I might have found funny when I was 13 myself, but not anymore ^^" Now it's just weird. Memo to self: don't add people on skype so easily.
Anyway. I don't really know what else to write about for now, there's nothing really happening in my life at the moment, but I guess this will drastically change next week when I'm back in Austria and meeting all my family and friends. Finally also some opportunities to dress in something nice (not stupid clean room clothes!) and wear some make up! Yey!
I planned to post a kind of review about 2012 like I did the previous two years, and I have looked through 5.7k of google keywords (actual figure, not made up) and will share the most hilarious and weird ones with you once again. So maybe there weill be some interesting content on my blog soon ;)
Are you gonna celebrate on Dec. 31st ?
I don't really know what to do yet... we'll see...
