Lord of the Dance


Can I just comment and say how good that picture turned out, haha, anyway I took it yesterday before the Lord of Dance show at Finlandia Talo. The last time I was there was when I was like 10 years old for the dance thing and my dance partner jumped on my dress and ripped it -.- golden memories <3 but the show was amazing, the dancers were extremely talented and it was a pleasure to watch them dance. But yes, before the show I was at Felix's house and "we" made homemade pizza, I say "we" because I barely did anything...wooops, and surprise surprise it turned out really delicious. Luca swung by too to grabbed a piece for himself when it was done, we met up with him again after the show and went to our friend Lydia's hangout, but I wasn't really in the mood so I left early. Right now I'm working on a post from my birthday party, but there's just so many pictures and right now there is so much stuff going on with EOYs (End of Years exams) so stay tuned ;)

As today is my last day as a child I feel obligated to say something to remember this day and the days to follow. You know how when you're sixteen and you talk about how being 18 must be like and you keep on waiting and waiting for the day to come when it's your turn, and how all the 18 year olds look so cool and independent (well some of them anyway, haha) well all of that, that's what I did. I've had endless discussions with my bestfriend about what we are going to do and that why can't it be that day already? Well tomorrow's the day with capital D. The day I finally turn 18. And let me just say that the time has gone by so fast! I mean I can't understand that it's all happening tomorrow! It's all very surreal, haha, but today we had the whole family over for pie and cake. I was sweating in the kitchen all Saturday to prepare for today. The lower pic is a pic of one of the cakes, I'm taking the other one to school because we have so much leftovers, haha. But after the party I went for a run, (big shock, hehe) I just came back home actually. Good way to mark my way into adulthood, so far I've completed week seven with my marathon training, still going strong. And the half marathon is in three weeks yay! But I guess that's all for now, I shall go to bed and try to stop dreading the beautiful picture that might emerge on my facebook wall tomorrow, haha

look up, get up and Never give up

This week has been a good week. I got in 8 workouts (!!!) haha, I swear I've never run this much in my entire life! and it gets better. Today after my morning workout with Karin at the gym, Alexandra came over as support, because today I had a 10K race and I was determined to break my personal record and I knew that I'd do better if I had someone there to push me. And it so happened that I did, thanks to Alexandra I managed to improve my personal record on 10K with almost six minutes! SIX minutes! damn this running really pays off! I really had to push myself to keep on going and kept on thinking of famous quotes like; pain is temporary, but pride is forever and if it doesn't challenge you then it won't change you. So cheesy, I know, but it kept me going, kept my head in the game. As for the next week I've got a lot of school stuff, as always, driving lessons and then a very secretive dinner with my parents about me turning 18, they haven't told me anything, super scared about what they are planning...But yea it's all really hitting me right now, one week left as a child, then I'm legally responsible of myself. can't wait, haha :)

Oh boy, I can't believe it's April. ALREADY. Time flies by so quickly and it's only like what 13 days 'til my birthday? damn. and what eight weeks of school left? I just want it to become warmer outside so I can go running without a jacket, haha. Oh yea, the pic, that's what came with the mail today! I'm soo excited and I really am training hard. Which me brings me back to that it's barely four weeks until the half marathon. which I by the way am really excited about too! I swear this spring is gonna be over before I know it and I have so much stuff to get done before that. Ugh I'm so tired at the moment, I'm so stupid, I barely slept over the easter break, haha, but right now I've gotta head out for my run.
