One n Half week til heaven drops a gift

Well only one and half week to go until heaven drop 's the best gift one could ever get. <3 My girlfriend arrives 1st of December here in Finland at 23.50 and i am going to see her at the airport when she i arrives. Oh i can't wait to see her again and be with her. That reminds me that i have to go police station to renew my passport that i can go to china meet her family there next years' January for a week. To do that i better fill my application for Tourist Visa to China, because i have no idea how long it will take them to process it. Last week and half were so busy at work i had to go to there all most everyday since there was like super long line cars waiting for to get their cars cleaned. I even had to work yesterday too on Sunday and the whole day me and my friend worked our butts off the whole time were open. I gotta take this day free time my limbs are just about done for and i woke this morning and felt that i could not bend my finger too well.

Today the season s' first snow has fell, but day is still kind warm so its melting relatively fast even thou i hope we could have big snow fall until Christmas so it would be white one like last year here in Finland when i was still in Japan with my plus one degree warm weather,but i think would wanna pass on the -30 Celsius... the last time i experienced that kind of cold weather was about four years ago in army services and MAN those days were cold as hell. I thought few times that i will lose my those or senses of them. Plus i had to be the holidays in stand by unit which lasted through Christmas. Uuh does were days when boys became men or just broke down like sand cake and few actually quit after first month and went to social service for 1,5 year. That what our country offers 6-12 months army, 18 months of social service or 6 weeks in jail for total denial.  

Thinking back now the army wasn't that bad it had it better days which were quite rare to be, but normal it would just be crap all the time even as officer in command. School in the other is best thing since sliced bread, which they sell in Japan like nothing else... seriously in my year there i did not see whole breads anywhere. Well they are rice based society.

Part time Job

Wuhuu i got one extra money source for myself in these every expensive times. My cousin talked his boss at his current job and convinced him to hire me to this car washing work which is a bit far and i only have my bicycle as my transportation from here to there, but the thankfully i need to go there on weekends and sometimes when  there is a crowd and they need extra hand. So they call me or sent message to my phone and i bike there as soon as i can or are able to leave school in same cases. The best part is that when they call me to come as extra hand i get plus 2 hours extra to my working hours as "thank you for coming to help", so if they call me at 1 pm and i get there by 2 pm and work there to 9 pm which normal would be 7 hours of work, but been extra  "helping hand" i get 9 hours worth of pay :) Now i only hope to get Sunday work shifts as extra helper so that i would get two extra hours double pay ;)

 Anyways i have only two months left of my theoretic classes and then its only work practice and thesis which still in process of deciding what,where and when.  I have a few idea that i could start to prepare to work on as thesis, but i still need few other things to clear out before i can go give my focus idea to my department s' headmaster who approve these things and select a suitable teacher as adviser and director for it.  Somehow i wish i could get my Swedish class passed, because its been like ages since i spoke at least decent Swedish at all, so that is why i am trying to get the basic grammar and vocab back into my head otherwise my graduation is gonna take for ever.

Today was working again from 9 am to 2 pm a normal shift and came back to my apartment totally beat. My legs and back hurt so much from all the physical work that i had to do there plus the 6 km bike drive every time to work and back. Now i hope that tomorrow will be quiet day at work so that i can heal little bit better and my joints can rest for awhile too.

getting colder and colder

Well these two weeks has gone like flying in the wind so to speak. I really can't figure out how i am going to complete my classes now that every single one that i need to do still are only in this 2nd period plus they all overlap with them self. The exchange year was great and i would not change that to anything, but MAN those my schools teachers doesn't have any sense in their heads putting students in to exchange programs and not even try to consider that they need actual compensation from the classes and not just voluntary classes that you can choose yourself. This will puss mine and other graduation further from the planned date. Sometime i really wonder if the class planner that designs these which days and what time is every teachers classes knows what she or he is doing at all.

Oh well can't really do anything about that so I'll just talk to teacher about the them and ask for some paper work that i can do on my free time. I really hope that i can pass all my necessary classes in this period so that i would only have my work practice and my thesis to build and write. and hopefully graduate sometime in next spring or fall. 

All thou i have had such fun time disguising with my cousin about my girl and things that follows her coming here to living with me. This will definitely make life much more interesting and full of unexpected events that i haven't really planned to do in two to three years still. We use to talk about our plans of getting girls and etc,but now we just talk about upcoming things that will change my and family s' way of thinking quite a bit :D I am not even so what they really think about me having like foreign girl as my partner and spouse even thou i did say to them that i m going to get one one day, but still they can be little weird about it for at least awhile, but that is okay for me for time being.

Prrr----r here in Finland it is getting like colder each passing day and darker too :S we only have like 5-degree Celsius and days are just getting shorter by the day. I think that we have only 8 hours of sunlight and by the time its chrismass we only have probably like 2-3 hours of light per day so its getting really dark and that is why i hope could have freezing temperature soon and one big snow shower that would give at least a bit brighter view to day and night :)
