Introduction             Coming up on this third paper, by far this was my favorite paper to write. This paper is much like my previous paper where I had to find a cultural artifact. However I had to find a cultural artifact that represents my community. With so many things I could’ve chosen from I wanted to make sure the object I chose impacted me in an immense way.             I looked into my family traditions carefully choosing the right one where I could compare to...

It's About Me, Amoena -

Over a year ago I met my old school friend by accident. I had not seen her for years, I think it had been like seven years since I had seen her the last time. But there she was, suddenly, in the same train with me. We quickly chatted, shared quick updates about our lives, ans agreed to stay in touch and meet up again. Well. I am not exactly good at organizing things. All I ever want to do is to stay home with my boyfriend. I don't want to go outside my own little home. And she was bad at...

Part of my world -

This post is going to be in English! Just for the fun of it and more so, because of the loo-oo--ng text I'm enclosing is in English. I have seen the light. I have been inspired. I want to share it with you! Some time ago I got this book recommendation from my brother-in-law. I haven't even finished it yet (I can't wait to get to the "Growth and religion" part!) and still it is mind extending. The book is called The Road Less Travelled and it is written by M. Scott Peck. It is "A new psychology...

Trailing Space -

The RPM Challenge for this year is open. It is a challenge for bands and artists where the goal is to record an album in 28 days. An album is defined here as either 10 songs or 35 minutes of original material and the material must be recorded during February. The idea is to get musicians activated: No waiting for inspiration. Instead, taking action puts one in a position to get inspired. Artists will stumble across ideas they would have never come up with otherwise, and maybe only because they...

The Freelancer's Fashionblog -

Today I heard the first seagulls - winter will be over soon! Here are, however, some pictures from last week when it still was very much winter. And here I am aswell! Slowly returning as the light slowly increases here on these latitudes. Like a Moomin troll I have hibernated from the blogosphere during the darkest months. (I always liked the Moomin winter book the best -well that one, and the one with the flood and the drifting heater - how he, against his nature, wakes up one winter and finds...

The Real Encyclopedia -

Question: Why hasn´t there been any new Q&A´s during the past month? Answer: The problem is that at the moment most of the problems in this world are solved. I have spent the last month trying to create more problems so that the demand for this type of encyclopedia would remain. Other option would be to expand this to other galaxies which still have unsolved problems. I haven´t decided which road I will follow. Fortunately, I can guarantee that the problem solving continues.

So last century * -

Yes, yes, I know I'm a few days late with this but in my defence I am crazily busy with my final major project for my degree. So what is the consensus on The Great British Sewing Bee ? Image courtesy of Radio Times I unfortunately missed the first 15 minutes and then was constantly interrupted throughout by my father sending me to get bobbins, thread, oil, screwdrivers, machine feet and various other bits every few minutes (he was fixing my singer so I can't complain really).

Lumi leijuu hiljakseen ikkunan takana. Olen siirtynyt talvitakkiin. Pää ei pysy kasassa, mutta olen silti yrittänyt lukea yhtä opintoihin liittyvää kirjaa, The Cultural Politics of Emotion (2004). Sara Ahmed, viitaten S. Freudiin ja M. Kleiniin, sivulla 125: For whilst love may be crucial to the pursuit of happiness, love also makes the subject vulnerable, exposed to, and dependent upon another, who in ‘not being myself’, threatens to take away the possibility of love. Love then...

Sandt Jaarittelee -

Finished reading Mein Kampf (an English translation of it to be exact, not the one filled with notes). There's been a lot of debate among historians as to whether Hitler's policies once he became chancellor followed a careful plan or whether those policies (such as the Holocaust) emerged more spontaneously, as a reaction to changing circumstances. Some Nazi sympathizers even claim Hitler had no choice but to do what he did because of the hostility of his foreign adversaries. To me it's quite...

Tänään olen metsästänyt imuriini pölypusseja sillä antaumuksella, että kun vihdoin niitä löysin (kahdeksas kauppa), olin purskahtaa itkuun. Puhtaasta helpotuksesta. Mietin myös moneenko kategoriaan ne miehet, joita deitti-palstoilla pyörii, minun kokemukseni mukaan asettuvat, mutta ajatus ei vielä ole valmis, joten siitä myöhemmin. Sen sijaan oheinen "tietoisku" (emmekö me naiset jo tienneetkin tämän??), joka ehkä selittää tästä maailmankaikkeudesta jotain: MEN PREFER...

I've got many interesting e-mails from all around the world and it was not easy to decide which subject I should discuss. The reason I chose this topic was the urgency. The writer told me that he has serious problems trying to figure out what is this mysterious Nobel Prize all the newspapers are writing about. That is why I´ll give the complete information I have about the Nobel prize. THE NOBEL PRIZE The Nobel Foundation was established in 1900. The first 42 years the name of the foundation...

Tänä aamuna tänne oli vihdoin viimein satanut ensilumen. Jippii! Lisää tätä metritolkulla! Nyt joku kesäihminen tietenkin vetää herneet nenäänsä mutta minä vain kerta kaikkiaan rakastan lunta ja talvea ja kaikkea ihanaa mitä siihen liittyy. Mitä joulukaan olisi ilman lunta?

Part of my world -

For the longest time I longed to find a good book to read. Whatever books I seemed to find from the corners of the library were empty and meaningless. But now, this summer, it seems I have found a few pearls. Nothing is more wonderful than the thrill you feel, when you find a book that really moves you. The delightment that spills in your heart when you take the book from the library shelf and notice there's something special. The tired excitement, when you read until it is too late but you...

Fillarikesä -

In the course of times, one finds oneself with a leftover collection of bike parts: parts from various projects, or from crashed frames, or just maybe having entered the house looking for shelter during the cold winter months. As the sum is usually bigger than its parts, I started to look for the missing link – the frame. First, it seemed that a decent second hand road frame would cost me 700-800 euro. Much too much for a bike that is essentially gratis. Then I encountered Matti who was...

Velhametsä -

This is a war that is being waged, and has been waged for many years now, in all major Swedish cities. The truth of this conflict is denied, it is lied about and it is ignored. This war does not exist officially. The majority of the victims of this war are, as in so many wars, innocent civilians. In this case young Swedes. Petra Åkersson has compiled a sociology report and conducted several interviews with young immigrant robbers. I found it surprising, that the results of this report were...

Vera's log -

Every time a war against anything starts in the US, the warriors are very annoyingly efficient. Last year I just wanted a little plastic bag for my purchases in a pharmacy in Harvard Square. I asked the cashier for a plastic bag, and he looked at me with huge round eyes and open mouth, as if I had asked him for newborn baby brains sprinkled with cocaine. Then he looked around, as if trying to make sure that nobody heard us, and whispered: "Don't you know? Plastic bags are forbidden!" I told him...

What is your name? My name? I'm Minea Lintunen. And yes, I know what the surname means. 'Little bird.' Look at me! Do you see anything little about me? No, I don't. So you're not little. What are you, physically? I'm large. I'm huge. Oh, not fat, not that. I'm tall. I'm broad. I got muscles. The guy who said women can't grow enormous muscles by exercising was dead wrong. But your muscles are not that big. Oh yeah? Look at these damned biceps ! They're impressive. But I've seen bigger, you know...

I have been pondering the world of blogs during these slow summer days. You see these different awards that are handed out to different bloggers, with titles such as "beautiful blogger" or "best blog". I decided to give out my own "inspiring blog" honor compliments, because we compliment people way too little. I've come to notice, that the blogs I enjoy the most, are written by those, who I personally know. No suprise there, I guess. With the summer being here, most of these people don't post...

A few people have asked about my whereabouts, and I thought I would drop in and tell that I'm fine. Still knitting, but here's the thing: I don't live and breath knitting anymore. I don't really know what happened, but suddenly I just noticed that I could live without checking the knit blogs and Ravelry every night. I could watch tv without knitting. I could even knit something and give it away without taking photos of it. I feel… free. :-D So I don't think I'm gonna blog anymore. I've used...

FO: Clapotis Yarn: Artesano Hummingbird, 300g Needles: 4mm For pictures of me wearing it, see the project page In knitting this Clapotis I also realised something about what guides me in choosing projects. Although knitting is supposedly for my own entertainment only, I still find myself considering expectations and norms. We all fall for this sometimes -or I at least would like to think that I am not the only one who might borrow the latest prize winner from the library just because it's a...

The Sufferfest provides the time-crunched cyclist structured workouts, and integrated training plans for indoor riding. Motivational video footage from grand tours and other races make it feel you're racing with others. The frame story is about Sufferlandrians who refuse to get dropped and who value pain, agony, and misery. This is the pep-talk you better get used to in The Sufferfest. Most of the exercises are short (30-60 minutes) and have a very detailed prescription. The 4DP or...

I almost forgot my promise of the morning pages. Well, no wonder really, since it's already afternoon. That, however, has absolutely nothing to do with my chosen title for today. When I picked up dancing, it really never occurred to me that it would end up as much more than a fun and healthy pastime, with the additional bonus of good leg muscle definition. Ah, to be young(er) and naïve again. Alas, the muscle definition didn't come alone and now I'm riddled with all sorts of things nobody...
