    Changing & Creating

    A couple of weeks ago I made a poll in my Instagram stories about the language of my blog. I asked my followers whether they would like to read my blog in English or in Finnish. The result was that 75% wanted to read in Finnish AND in English to 25% just in English. Thus, I have decided that I’ll start writing my blog in Finnish again (with a small conclusion in English) and use English in my Instagram feed as a primary language as I have done always. Pari viikkoa sitten teetin kyselyn Instagramin tarinoiden puolella ja kysyin seuraajiltani, millä kielellä he haluaisivat blogiani lukea. Suurin osa vastaajista toivoi,…

    GROWING GROUNDED

    I’ve been hibernating all autumn. I haven’t really been seeing anyone, had any parties, done any sports… I’ve cut down my internet/social media use by half, if not even more. I just had to even though I didn’t wish to. This autumn has been very hard for me and I’ve needed some time to settle to the current needs of my everyday life. I’ve gone back to my roots and tried to unravel them to make more sense of me and components my life. I needed to do this to able to bare the storms that have come and are still ahead. Strong roots keep the tree standing no matter…
