What If…

I’m supposed to write about a time that I’ve always thought what if? about. I’ll have to disappoint you with this one. I can’t think of a thing I think like that.

I try and live my life without regrets, so if I want to do something, I usually do it. If I leave something I wanted to do undone, I try not to dwell on it. Usually there is a reason for when I don’t do something. Reasons like I don’t have money or the opportunity. I try not to let time be the problem because I know I would regret if I didn’t do something simply because I had no time. It’s just a matter of arranging things.

I usually speak my mind, so people usually know what I think about them or how I feel towards them. I may live behind a mask of indifference, but the people who truly matter to me know that they do.

Sorry for the disappointing what if – post

Five Places I Want to Visit

1.The Great Barrier Reef

This is just one of many places in Australia I wish to visit one day. The reason why lies in the biology nerd that lives inside me. It is such a hot spot for different animals and plants that it would be totally awesome to see. Besides, it is one of those places that will not be there for long if humanity continues to live the way it does.

2.London

I’ve never been, even though it was in my plans last summer when I was in Great Britain for two months. However, we were in Scotland, and the trip would have taken a long time and a lot of money, so I decided I could wait. There are so many things I would love to see in London; Big Ben, London Eye, Baker Street, etc. Also, when I someday get to visit, one thing I will do without a doubt, is go see Mousetrap.

3. Japan

I have always wanted to visit Japan during the time when the cherry trees are in blossom. I also love many things about Japanese culture. I would love to eat actual authentic Japanese sushi and miso soup. I would also love to put my language skills to good use. After all, I have been studying Japanese as my minor in University for two years now.

4. Masai Mara

I would love to see the great savanna and all the great animals that live there. It would be a great experience for the animal-lover in me. Plus it would feed my sense of adventure.

5. Hawaii

I would love to learn to surf one day and since it is not possible in Finland, what better place than Hawaii. Although I would settle for Australia or California, but lets go with Hawaii. There are also many other things I would love to see in Hawaii. It is such a unique place and the culture fascinates me. Also the connection with Elvis is one thing that intrigues me. My mother is a huge Elvis fan so that would be a good place to go with my mum.

Animals in my life

I have many animals in my life. Firstly, I have my cat, Tintti. She’s very special to me because she’s my first own pet. When I was little we had another cat called Mikki but she was my sister’s cat. I got Tintti from my grandmother when her cat had babies, Tintti was the last one and I convinced my mum to allow me to take it. I remember when we brought her home. She was really tiny, just about two or three months old and she could get anywhere she wanted. She was really scared after the hour drive from my grandmother’s and when she finally got inside she started to look around the place. For a while we continued our day as it would’ve normally but after about an hour we realized Tintti was nowhere to be seen. We looked everywhere and I was starting to panic, where had she gone? Finally I found her in the corner of my room under a storage box that was like ten centimeters up from the floor. I tried to coax her out of there but she wouldn’t come. I remember I cried that she hates me and that we have to take her back, and that was the moment she came to me and stood in my lap. From that moment on I’ve known she loves me.

I also have other animals in my life. My sister has two cats called Haru and Sora. They’re about half a year older than Tintti and they’re really a cute couple. Haru is the lively one who’s almost always somewhere near begging for petting πŸ™‚ Sora Β is the shy girl who needs some coaxing to get her out of her shell. She’s became even more careful when my sister and her boyfrined got a dog called Lady. It took some time and she’s still getting used to the new comer after almost a year but she’s coming around. Both cats are dear to me in their own way and they also sometimes get to be the object of my photographing. Lady is like one of my friends. She’s a lively dog and I love that about her. She also gets to be in my pictures whenever she can be still for enough time for me to take pictures.

My grandmother has two cats and a dog. Misu, the older cat is special to me because she’s Tintti’s mother. Without her i wouldn’t have my lovely little baby πŸ™‚ Repsu is the little one who likes to be held and petted. And then there’s Rosi, the dog. She’s like one of my best friends. She gets sad whenever I’m not with my parents when they go visit my grandmother and I always feel bad when I’m not going with them because of it πŸ™‚ We have a lot of fun together whenever we’re visiting them. We walk around in the woods around my grandmother’s place and we play in the riverbank and also she’s the object of many pictures πŸ™‚

My brother has four dogs. Three little ones and one big one. The big one is called Moppe and he’s ultimately my favorite πŸ™‚ He likes petting and he’s never gonna get enough of it. He looks at you with these cute little chocolate brown puppy-eyes and you can’t help but melt(well, at least I can’t) This is probably one of the reasons why he’s my favorite but it could also be ’cause I like big dogs, little dogs are too little. Dogs should be big πŸ™‚ The little dogs have lots of energy an they’re the little rebels but still, they’re special to me too because they each have their own personality.

I really don’t have much options but love animals with a family like mine πŸ˜€ I would love to become a biologist and help the endangered animals all over the world so maybe it’s a good thing my family loves animals too πŸ™‚

True friends

How do you know if someone is your true friend? A conversation with one of my dearest friend got me thinking. How do you know you’ve met a true friend? Is a true friend someone you can tell everything? Someone who you can have a laugh with?

I think a friend is someone who is there to share your joy and the fun times. But a true friend is also there when you have troubles and to listen to you when you’re sad. A true friend will listen to you ranting about your troubles and thinks nothing of it, because when they see you hurting, they hurt too. They don’t see the listening as a must. They just WANT to listen and make you feel better just to see you smile again πŸ™‚ They love you like you’re their family. They love you unconditionally, no matter what you do They care for you like they care for themselves. They don’t expect you to return the things they do to you, but they know you will πŸ™‚ When you feel like you’ve burdened them far too much, they want you to tell more because they don’t care how bad it is, they still love you and want you to feel better πŸ™‚ Friends, boy- and girlfriends come and go, but true friends are the ones picking up the piecesΒ of your broken heart when you need them to and to enjoy all the good things in your life right alongside you ’til the end πŸ™‚

 

This is my definition of a true friend. What is yours?
