Here we are at again: the end of summer, the shorelines of summer turning to autumn. Depending on the place you live in and how things are like for you, August is either the beginning of the autumn itself or still a fine summer month for you. Of course, for many people, we return back to work around this time (unless your summer vacation was just a week or two long) and back to school. For many others, the school begins once again in a new place. And as this is about to happen, I thought that sharing my thoughts of this summer would be a nice lil' idea, especially since I don't seem to be uploading much of journals or pictures on here unlike on FA.
Welp, I should've known that it was bound to happen again: no summerjobs what-so-ever to keep me financially up with the needs that are needed almost any given time: to pay bills, to eat and drink, to have fun and accomplish some plans. Although, it wasn't as bad as some previous summers have been like, there's always room for improvement and hoping for better times. So, I decided to do commissions (only on FA) to get me something to live with. To those of you who have commissioned me, thank you.
What has happened in my summer then, if it's not all bad? Well, I've traveled twice back and forth at my grandparents hometown and showed my face to people who haven't seen me in for a long while. Alot of things had happened and changed during the time I haven't shown myself in at, so it was refreshening to let them see and know that I still exist and haven't abandoned them all. Though the real reason was because my grandaunt and granduncle promised me bit of work to do at their garden for some extra dosh to keep me going with the summer. Of course, I didn't got a whole lot from the deal, since even they were bit busy themselves in getting things done, but hey, at least I was able to offer a hand for them. That and I got to see some folks face to face, talk with them and memorize things a bit with them. I did this travel twice, the first one around June by train (and bus since there were some work going on with the rails between stations) and the next time via a quick-travel with a car. I even adopted a style of writing a journal/diary in my sketchbook of days events, just to keep things bit interesting.
For other things that has happened during this summer, well...I've met my friends in their new apartement (and I've got to say, they got themselves a spot which has great levels of "win" for them, with such a view from their balcony), been to town a bit with my sister (subliminaladvertising: goseeherpagehereonDA, it'sthisoneoverhere
, goorIwillnotsurvive).... and that's about it. Most of the time, though, it's been just surfing the web, playing games, relaxing, drawing, sleeping and occasional thinking of the direction I have taken in my life. And commissions, that too.
Hoo boy, now that I think of it: according to clock as I'm writing this, it's 12:07 AM (or 0:07) over here on August 2nd and already my hopes of returning back to school I've been to for 5 years now (first three years on a different study and these current coming three years on another subject) are more than making me impatient. By August 7th I may return back to the dorms where privacy I get to have (well, think it from your perspective if you were to live with your parent(s), you know privacy is something you'd wish as well!) will be more than a blessing to my mind and on 8th my final year officially begins. I hope that the studies will be okay on my end and I will hope that I'll get fine certificates from it. But also I hope greatly that I will during my time find myself an apartement around the city where my school is located at, since I've gotten accostumed to the place and would like to start living on my own around there. When it comes to "moving in and starting living on my own" -part, I can only hope so much and I hope that I will do much more than just sit and hope.
Speaking of August: my mother is arranging her 50th b-day party this coming weekend; her birthday was on May already all time ago, but the actual party is around this time, in which lot of our relatives from all over Finland will arrive in and spend the weekend (August 3rd and 4th) the way she has planned it. During these days, I and my uncle get to be the "ferry men" of the cable ferry, since the place we're spending this time is located at an island in middle of the river. While there's something for me to do, I hope it won't become the kind of boring task as I suspect it to come, which is constant waiting of different people to come and arrive up until late evening. Hopefully though, all things will go fine and smoothly, without any worries or stress. (Though looking at the local weather reports, this should go rather fine: no rain at all~)
Welp, those are my large, time-wasting thoughts - thought I'd share them with ye, even though I kind of presume that no one cares. But hey, update's an update, so at least you know that I live. So for those of you out there who are returning to work, school or beginning their work or school (of all kinds), have a fine one~
