Amazing things happened this week.
First, I discovered on my head two little grey hairs, lost in the middle of what looks like a jungle. Believe it or not, it makes me super happy! I’m turning 29 in a bit more than a month and let’s face it, I get older (like each one of you, right?) but also wiser than I was 10 years ago. I was a wild, lost, a bit dumb and a fearless girl, taking decisions in a heartbeat (it took me about 5 minutes to be sure I wanted to go to Iceland for a year) but I also probably hurt some people by being heartless and wiping them off my life if I didn’t care about them any longer. Well, I may not have the same load of energy and craziness anymore, but still, I’m pretty sure that aging turns you into a
lazier more open minded and a better person than before. You might (or at least should) have learnt from your previous mistakes, be able to know what is good for your body/mind/happiness or not, what kind of people you need around you or not and how to keep them close (or not, well you got the point).
If you still feel like you’re in the middle of nothing, crawling under pressure, looking for your own path or at the point of getting rid of everything and everyone to start again from scratch, trust me, it’s never too late. At least in my book.
Also, I figured out in what field I will start my studies next year. You have to know that Finland is a fantastic country, except when it comes to administration. Those people are totally NOT flexible. They don’t joke with paperwork. Oh no they don’t. If you don’t have THE EXACT DIPLOMA with THE EXACT TITLE and THE EXACT NUMBER OF CLASSES THAT YOU SHOULD HAVE TAKEN EVEN IF YOU DIDN’T KNOW BEFORE COMING TO THIS COUNTRY THAT THIS IS WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO WORK (yes, I’m yelling), then you can just start all over again.
And I won’t. After some years of studying to become a teacher and so many years (and tears) of experience, I just can’t take it anymore. It took me a while to figure out what would be my dream field. The answer was right under my eyes, indeed, but I kinda thought about what would get me a job straight after, what would make money, what diploma is good to have on the job market. And then, during a conversation with my sister (<3), she told me that when she was younger, teachers asked her what she would like to become, and she always answered the same thing. And that's how I found it, the Saint Graal of my life, what I've always wanted to become… a stripper, of course. Just kidding. Or? Well, maybe I'll keep that as a hobby. But ethnology and anthropology sound a bit more suitable for my ass.
Enough about myself, let’s talk about what’s going on in the world. Except those very, very interesting news about Nabilla (a French bimbo, famous her huge brains, who is now accused of having stabbed her boyfriend), or the elections in the USA or AC/DC’s drummer, one thing has caught my attention :
I let you think about it. In the meantime, here is a little song to cheer you up, and it’s a special one for my father (it’s Father’s day today) and I have the best Dad you can dream of, a real hero. Have a nice day you all!
