So, today on 28th of May, my arts and visual artisan studies have come to an end and I've graduated with some alright looking papers. Needless to say, I'm officially free of studies and on a summer vacation.

...or unemployed, as you'd put it more precisely.

Anyho, I've spent now 6 years of my life in studying two different fields of occupation, 3 years each, from which I've gathered up two different papers for me to get into specific jobs from the specific fields of occupations. And admittedly, when I looked at my dorm for one more last time as it became empty, with lights shut and everything empty, I had a bittersweet moment from leaving behind such a great place, with such great teaching atmosphere and with great staff, some of which have affected me perhaps more than enoughly for me to trust employees of schools quite alot. I'm going to miss them, really. I'm coming to a decision that at some point, I will make it so that I will buy myself on the next autumn or spring a bus ticket back to Tornio and go visit the school and see how everyone's doing ever since I left from there. I'll swear it.

For now though, I just need to relax and unwind a bit and concentrate on the fact that I'm living in the present and I should make most of the present. Which leads me to the next part of the topic:

By now, most of the folks that have ever known me on Skype, YIM, AIM, Steam or even MSN when it still existed, knows that I have quite negative point of view of my hometown Ii (yes, two i -letters. And no, the place is not known as "Two") - simply put, it's a small town (suburban perhaps?) that has only the necessary things in it, but nothing else to keep me entertained or give me the required things for a living (plus the fact how I still am living with my mother in a very, very small house that barely has space for either of us with lack of privacy). And since everything else are too far away, including most of the possible jobs and entertainment plus those extra special services that most cities has, I've decided that it's my time to move away from here and as soon as possible. Which is going to be my next step to the great life of "unemployed young adult seeking a proper start for his pathetic life": finding an apartement to settle down to and live there.

I've been keeping an eye open ever since the end of April and start of May for possible single room or two-room apartements where I could move into. And while originally I thought that moving to Tornio would be a good idea, the prices on the houses there were way too high for me to even think about going to there, so instead, I will be searching for possible place to live at Oulu, a city about 40 kilometers to the south of my current location. And since I have the advantage of having my big sister helping me who has been living in the city for 10 years and some of her friends, I have an access of experience knowledge that can tell me the goods and bads of specific areas where I could go to and where I should keep my distance from.

Until I get to the actual apartement checking, though, I need to take care of few other things first, mainly the fact that I'm going to visit the nearest Work and Employment Office to inform myself properly as a recently unemployed/searching for a job, to which I can then at least get some unemployment grants from Social Security Institution and then proceed on with the apartement hunting. If I'm lucky, I should have an apartement and a place I could settle down by the end of June, allowing me to finally get a nice start in living on my own.

...and even after that, I have still one more other issue to take care of and that is my wisdom tooth that is going to be removed on July 7th at Kemi's central hospital. The two words alone is making me tad nerveous, but something's gotta get done if you want it to get done.

And that's about that. That's what has been happening recently and that's what my next plans are.

And in case you folks are about to ask it: we'll see when I decide to open the commissions. I'm pretty much free of duties for now, but there might just come other things along that makes the thing bit more difficult.

What's your Opinion of The Kalevala?
EmotionCreator Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2013
Personally speaking, while it's one of the more important books in the finnish culture and it's history, I don't really care much about it. Why so?
Prophet-malum Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2013  Student Writer

General Survey - would you say your opinion is general of most of finland?

As well, I personally think that the tendency to conflate it with Greek and Germanic Mythes really do bury the lead.

Also, of the two phrases used for ''Dragon'' in finnish - 'traaki' or 'lohi-kaarme' which would you use - anthropomorphism aside - to define your dragon?

EmotionCreator Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2013
To be honest, I don't care what most of Finland thinks about the Kalevala - it's their opinion and mine is mine. And unfortunately, I don't care for this survey either.
