Hello dear readers, sorry to have kept you waiting! I'll update last weeks post today, since I was errm.. A bit hangoverish yesterday!

School and assignments

My week has been quite hectic, busy with what else than school. We've had quite a few assignments to do (plus I still had to do couple extra ones that were due earlier this year, hmm! Shouldn't leave things to the last minute I tell you. I know it sounds silly, but please do as I say and you'll have less stress in your life! :D).

During the week the 'easiest' day I had was Tuesday and I decided to visit a few flea markets and did find something nice for myself and others.

On Wednesday I was working pretty much on our Orientation to Studies assignments, and we did do some research to one of them with Sonja too. Basically what we need to do, is some research on some of the databases, like Leevi, Nelli portal etc. And the other assignment is a pairwork where we need to researh some subject and then make a raport about it.

Thursday was pretty mad. First of all we had a Swedish group discussion. Our group discussed smartphones, which was quite a nice topic actually. It was the swedish that wasn't so great.. At least for me, I'm not very good at it to be honest. But I think it went quite ok anyway!

Other major thing on Thursday was working on our assignment for Introduction to Programming. What we needed to do, was create an program that would give the user choices on what they have been eating, eg. noodles, hamburger. Then the user would state if they were a male or a female and the program would calculate all the calories. If the user had been eating more than necessary, then the program would also calculate how much they need to run for the day to burn the extra calories. First it was a bit frustrating, but after figuring out what you need to do and when, it was quite easy. Programming can be really enjoyable, especially when you get things working!

Friday and Saturday days were dedicated to my Finnish raport.. Which is taking a nice shape now, and which due-date was a while ago... Like I said, don't leave things til the last minute!

These last three periods that we have in the spring are shorter than the ones in autumn. And the schedule for everything is pretty hectic. We need to learn and do too much stuff in too little time! Some teachers are also a bit confused because of periods being shorter.

Our schedule for next period seems a bit.. Weird, to be honest. We have four days that start only after 11.35, and some days are three hours long. Well, I'm not complaining, at least we get to sleep til later, but still it's kind of odd.

Here's some pictures that I took on Tuesday, walking across Joutsensilta and then walking back! Very pretty, ehh?

 

 

Drink and dance feat. Pendulum!

This weekend was also a special one. Pendulum, one of my favorite bands, had a DJ Set-gig at Teatria, with a punch of other DJ's. It was the first time I've been to Teatria, and it was quite fun! Haven't seen any gigs for a long time, so it was about time. I went there with a few of my classmates and some other mates.

I was lucky enough to be in the second row and also at some point the first row, could see everything perfectly. And apparently hear too, since after the gig I couldn't hear anything with my other ear. But hey, that happens! The gig was really good, full of energy and good music, I was really happy with it. Although the next day I was also very sore, since people had been punching and kicking me during the set. Not that I really noticed! That's just something you can't avoid if you want to be right at the front.

Well, that's about it this time fellas. I'll talk to you again soon.

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day, hope you all have something special planned with your special ones! At least I do :) And also, tomorrow is the skating event at our school at 14.00-16.00, maybe I'll also see you there!

ps. Something's up with my internet, veeery slow today. Anyone else experiencing slowness?

pps. I'll leave you with some pictures from the gig. Mind the quality, I only had my phone as a camera there.
