Hiihtoloma lopussa ja sähköposti piti avata :(. Säpöhän oli täynnä postia ja siinä vastaillessa muistin että minun pitää sopia ensikesän työharjoittelusta. Menen työharjoitteluun Kainuun ammattiopiston luonnonvara-alan yksikköön jossa opiskelin eläintenhoitajaksi ennen oamkiin tuloa. Toivon että pääsen touhuamaan rakkaan kyyttökarjan parissa (kuvassa Emma, Elotar ja minä) sekä kikkailemaan traktorilla. Harjoittelun eka osa kestää mulla vaan kuukauden sillä sain hyväksiluettua puolet työskennellessäni ennen koulun alkua eräässä robottinavetassa.
Tarkoituksena oli tänään kirjoittaa laajemmin harjoittelusta mutta pää kyllä lyö ihan tyhjää, joten rupean valmistautumaan ensi viikolla alkaviin yrittäjyys ja luonnontuote kursseihin! :)

Ajattelin semmosta tänne blogiin raapustaa, kun mä sain meidän koululta semmosen työjutskan! Ku meidän koulullahan on näitä hankkeita toisensa perään nii paljon, ettei niissä kai kaikki pysy ees mukana (en minä!) ja yks nykyhetkisistä hankkeista on tämmönen metsähanke MoTaSu. Se keskittyy Ruka-Kuusamon alueen metsiin ja niiden hoitoon jne. en oo ihan varma, mutta kuitenki mä alan soittelemaan tässä pikapuolin nuille ton alueen metsänomistajille ja haastattelen niitä, eli kyselen vaan kysymyksiä ja kirjotan vastaukset valmiiseen lomakkeeseen!
Ehkä mä opin tästä jotaki, ku en oo oikein nuita metsäkursseja oo kauheena käyny tänä vuonna. ;) Mä soittelen yhteensä joku 20-30 tuntia ja sit mä saan sen verran palkkaa, että semmmmmmosta! :) Ihan kiva ku sai hommaa ja siitä syntyy rahaa!

Yesterday opened my live football season. I went to Nottingham Forest – Wigan game. The teams play in the Championship league. That is the second highest level of football in England. The City Ground is the stadium where Forest plays their home games. It is a beautiful old stadium right by the Trent River, the capacity of the stadium is around 30,000 and at yesterdays game there were around 23,000 so the atmosphere was good.
The weather was perfect for the day. It was a sunny early spring day, so a perfect to play some ball. Forest was six points ahead of Wigan in the standings, but that didn’t really show off on the pitch. Wigan was relegated from the Barclays Premier League last season, but still you could see the quality in their play and they really were in the driver’s seat the whole game.
I was seated in the main stand on the second row so verrrry close to the field. And what do you know few minutes in there is an scruffle for the ball ten meters from me and the Forest player got his forehead sliced open and was bleeding all over the place. Huh and they say hockey is dangerous. But the player was all fine in the end with just a taped up head and he continued to play like a gladiator. In the game Wigan totally controlled the mid field and that kind off killed off anything Nottingham tried. As short summary of what happened in the score line: Wigan moved ahead at the end of the first half. Forest tied it early in the second half with a cracking goal from a young prodigy Paterson or something. After that all just fell apart for Forest and Wigan scored two goals in five minutes and sealed it with a late fourth goal.
1-4 in the end, but I didn’t really have too much of a favorite in this game, sorry all nottinghamnese people. This was just a warm up for the big games to come. Also it’s nice to see goals, even if they are banging away on the expense of the home team.

Hello World. This is blog update is little different. This is directed little more toward all my new friends here in Nottingham. Hope I don’t exclude my friends back home, but when my folks came around to visit I caught some of their pictures from wintery Oulu. And anyway this is going to be a short blog, so don’t get too butthurt about not seeing my dumb face or any new place from Nottingham.
Ok so these are my father’s pictures from early February I think. They are from my parent’s house and the neighborhood where I grew up in. They show you the beautiful side of winter. Hope you enjoy.

What a fun day at ice fishing I had! Sauna nights, sledging, trips, sports, parties and friends, it truly has been a good year being back in Finland. I came back in Oulu just over a year ago, after living abroad for 2, 5 years. I didn’t know what to expect, would I have a culture shock, would my old friends still have me in their lives after not seeing me for such a long time and how would I survive the dark. Luckily I was full of energy, both happy and busy catching up with family and friends, who turned out to be even more precious and open to have me back that I could have ever wished for. Thanks to them, I didn’t have the time for a shock or misery.
I got back to studying, but before I even attended any lectures I contacted the school and OSAKO to get involved with anything international here in Oulu University of Applied Sciences. I wanted to keep having my life international. I started international tutoring straight away, and that was one of the best things I did the whole year. It brought so much content in to my life by so many means I’m forever grateful about getting the chance to be an international tutor. It made me meet amazing people, beautiful personalities and kind hearts.
International students are a treasure. They are both weak and strong, they bring colour to our Finnish lives by being who they are and introducing us to their cultures. International tutors are another treasure. They take care of the international ones, who, especially the exchange students, literally go through love and hate, events and experiences worth of a decade in just a couple of months. International degree students have taken a step further, they have come here in the cold for years, and they for sure need their tutors for support.
I’m continuing my mission to stay international in Oulu by working on international affairs in OSAKO. I want others to have as good experiences as I did as an International tutor and as a student returning back home after a fair bit of time away. I’d love to see internationals and Finns getting closer together, I know there’s people intrigued by the other!
It can happen. I started off in Oulu knowing nobody but Finns, and I’ve ended up spending my days talking and thinking in English. In my opinion, the best way to internationalize yourself is to sign up to being an international tutor, that’s definitely the number one method. Another one is to join our international events, where you can’t avoid meeting and talking to people from another country to yours. Of course the most renowned way is simply to talk, this can be applied anywhere. International students won’t bite you, and neither do the Finns. Start off with smiling, and after a while you’ll have built up courage to go and have a discussion with one another! And last but not least: OSAKO’s International Team is a perfect place for anyone with even the tiniest bit of interested in international affairs to meet likeminded fellow students and to start working on with improving international Oulu.
