I just remember the beginning of summer, the feeling of having much time, the perception that everything is still ahead. Yesterday, I work up and calender indicated August, the last summer month. Things were slow and intensive at the same time, unpredictable, and surprising. Things didn't necessarily go as planned, yet, there were new interesting… Continue reading Hello August!
This story happened at least 14 years ago, if I remember correctly. I was young, and I was still learning how to communicate with men. At some point, I was very tough and even rude if I did not like the guy who approached me. My friends gave me some feedback on that, justifying it… Continue reading ‘If It’s a Destiny, We’ll Meet Again’
I continue my 'philosophical' series by speculating why we actually blog. My day was not that productive, not much done and achieved. After some struggles, I thought 'Damn it, I gonna do something nice for myself, something I really like and enjoy.' And here I am writing a blog about blogging.

Here is the last but one post on the 90s Russia. 90s definitely brought a lot of diversity in all possible senses of this word. I don't think I am able to fit even 1/100 in this post, yet, there will be some overview on music and movies. First, let's have a flash back to… Continue reading Music and Movies in 90s Russia
Like I have already written in one of the posts, there were not much food choice in the shops. In addition, products were extremely expensive that only few people could afford them. Luckily, the hunger times did not last for too long. Gradually, things started changing for the better in terms of food availability. And… Continue reading Food Trends in the 90 Russia
Today, I will write about my playground memories. I can't complain regarding the set of toys that I had as all the necessities were kindly sponsored by parents. Though I didn't have that many toys in nowadays standards, it was still sufficient. I had several dolls, some kitchen appliances, 2 soft toys, and cars. Surprisingly,… Continue reading My Memories of Toys and Playgrounds
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.
