I been up all night, no sleep, cause I feel like I'm always dreaming

Whoop whoop, my exams and lessons are over for this year! I am so happy that I can finally relax a little bit, the amount of stress that I was having during exam period is crazy!  

On Friday I went out with few of my work mates and oh man, they know how to take it until morning! We started with few drinks at this really nice pub here in Limassol, Shaka Zulu, which I can recommend to everyone! After that we were thinking about going to this club (bare in mind I left my house around 11 am that morning and was dressed for my exams) but decided to go to my friends house for drinks. 

The thing I love about Cyprus is that it's mid-December and we stayed the whole night sitting on the balcony. It was a bit chilly outside but nothing we couldn't handle. I mean look at that view, it's amazing. We were drinking and laughing the whole night. The best thing was watching the sunshine. We did the same thing back in August and it was so cool to see how the sun came out from a different spot this time of the year. You can really see how earth has moved and why the days are shorter during winter time. 

I mean just look at this view! It's breathtaking ! I could go on and on about how pretty it was, this is something everyone should witness at least once in their lifetime.  I have to admit that after everything I've been through lately Friday night was definitely what  I needed to get things out of my head.  I am so grateful to have such amazing friends in my life. 

 Luckily, now I've got more time to concentrate on my blog more as I don't have to study! 

I hope you all had great weekend and relaxing Sunday!

Long time no see

Hello readers (if there is any of you left there after all this time haha)

Wow. I can't believe I am actually writing here again. I had decided to leave this blog behind and concentrate on my other blog, but I kind of prefer blogger over the other one so I was thinking, what the heck, I am going to give this another chance. 

So much has changed since I last wrote here. I don't even know where to begin or if I even wanna write about all the changes here. We will see. I wanted to hide all my old posts and start fresh but decided to leave all the old posts - at least for now.

To cut short story long, here is a little recap of what has been going on with me. 

It has now been two years since I left Finland and moved to Cyprus. And yes, I am still living in here. There is no way I am going back to Finland any time soon, if ever. For holidays, yes. I can't say I will live my rest of the life here, but for now, Cyprus is the best place for me. 

Last time I wrote I was working in Mango. On February I changed jobs and that has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. I really like my job, it's something different and I find it really interesting. I have met amazing people through my work and my best friend here in Cyprus. She is amazing I don't know what I would do without her (if she is reading this, she knows who she is haha x) 

My studies are still going well. I am slowly passing my lessons and hopefully in 1.5 years I will have my Bachelors Degree and then few more years and I will finish my ACCA studies with Masters Degree.  I have 2 exams this December, hopefully will pass both of them haha! 

Hmm... what else? Well, I am just enjoying my life at the moment and trying to make best of it.

I still don't know whats going to happen with this blog, if I actually manage to keep up with posts, but I will try. I have few post ideas ready, I just need to think what kind of posts I wanna write here.

Please leave comments below if you have any post ideas or you have any questions.

My 2015 - part I

Happy New Year my dear readers!

I can't believe 2015 is over and 2016 is already here. The whole year went by so fast! A lot of things happened last year, good and bad, and I decided to made a quick review of what happened to me in 2015. 

January - March

Ok so in January I started to study ACCA (chartered accounting) and I was so excited to be back at school! I had missed studying so much (Im crazy I know!). I also made some new friends from work and I basically spent all my free time with them. Even tho those friendships ended as fast as they formed, I'm still glad all those memories I have with them because we actually did have a laugh. Finally, after a long search, on February I found my very first own apartment!


In April my best friend came to Cyprus to visit me. Even tho she stayed just one week we had so much fun together! And when I went to pick her up from the airport, on our way back I was so distracted by the police car driving in front of me that I missed the junction to Limassol and we got lost and had to drive to Larnaca. Well since it was my first time in Larnaca by my self ( and only second time ever ) we got pretty lost but in the end it was all good, we stayed there for few hours, enjoyed the sun and then luckily the way back home was easier to find :p 


One night in May, me and my boyfriend we started hearing a small kitten crying all day and night and since we couldn't handle hearing her cry, we went and found her and took her home with us. She had problem with her lip and needed a surgery and we got help from one very kind woman and thank god her lip healed and she is fine. Also in May I really started stressing with my exams and I spent all my free time studying.


In June I had exams and thank God all the studying was worth the pain and  time because I passed all three exams! Also my oldest friend who I've known since forever came to Cyprus for holidays with her baby and I spent as much time as I could with them.
