I want to apologise that I fav and run away but I was very busy, yet lack of the connection and what's more still I don't have a great one.
The last month was really hard here but so fruitful! I had to have all my projects done. You may see the results on my website (it was one of the projects as well, if You've not done it before (; The first semester I finished with a really high average of grades: 4.92 and I'm going to keep it in order to receive some scholarship in the following year. But just now the average allows me to take part in Erasmus exchange program in the next academic year. So I'm going to make one of my dreams to come true and go to study in Finland !!! Now I'm calmly enjoying my winter holidays, longer than ever and what about You?
Yes, I am!! I plan to study in Seinšjoki during, here called, summer semester, but on their site I found two periods in it: January-May and March-June. I think of the latter one but I think I'll contact the international coordinator there to make sure!
I chose this period to be able to stay for a little bit longer there when the year is over, if it was possible, of course I'd love to meet some of my friends and mates if it was possible too, but if not, i may find something else interesting to do ) Thank You!! I hope to keep the level to be able to receive a scholarship in the next year
I had three choices: Seinšjoki, Oulu and Imatra. But the one I chose was the most appropriate, I guess. Although if nothing changes till I come there I'll actually study in Jurva, some kms from Seinšjoki
Imatra is almost on the Russia's side of the country . I've been to Oulu (my brother used to live there) and it's a rather lovely city. Rather up in the north. I think Seinšjoki was still the best choice . I think Jurva is part of Kurikka now (?) .
I've noticed.. I'd fear to go there (; I wanted to Oulu at first because it'd be so close to Rovaniemi, which I've wanted to visit so much since ages! In Seinšjoki they have Graphic Design Hmm.. Wiki says it is, i guess.. and what does it mean? (;
It's a thing you get used to, when you live here. I was born up north where minus 30 was warm from November to February. There -40 and even bellow -45 isn't anything unusual. Schools are open normally and people do their jobs, also outdoors. People who live there know how to dress up in cold weather.
It's not as hard as it may sound. Get dressed properly and you are enjoying the clarity and brightness of cold days. The white frozen nature looks fantastic and the nights when the moon is full are absolutely amazing.
