Mid-Age Crisis Plan

Lockdown was a challenging period for me because I like to be out and surrounded by people. Instead, I had to stay home and entertain myself as much as I could. There was so much time to re-evaluate life and to think of what is really important. Yet, too much thinking is never good either.… Continue reading Mid-Age Crisis Plan

Moscow by a Semi-foreigner

Last year I devoted the big part of my writing to my childhood memories of the 90s Russia. So what about the country today? Russia is very unstable in political, economic, and social aspects.

Crimes in 90s Russia

Let's move from frauds to severer things. Today, I will write about crimes. To begin with, I was way to far from it, and all my knowledge on this particular topic comes from TV. Watching news is never fun, not now, not back then. I clearly stayed away from TV as much as could, still… Continue reading Crimes in 90s Russia

10 Years in Finland. Conclusions.

Yesterday, August 25, is exactly 10 years of me being in Finland. In 2009, I arrived to this country being extremely naive and scared of everything. I could not even imagine that there can be such a safe place, where you can freely walk in the late evening, where you can loose your purse and… Continue reading 10 Years in Finland. Conclusions.
