as the winter winds litter London with lonely hearts

today Johanna "Tuksu" Tukiainen has a "gig" in my town. all my friends here are going. and there's a saturday disco in Tavastia tonight and my Helsinki friends are going there. but i'm not. today i feel that it's much nicer to stay home, go to sauna and watch some silly tv shows with my family. or maybe snuggle to the corner of our sofa and grab a good book with me, not forgetting a cup of hot chocolate and a warm blanket.
so why should i celebrate every single weekend even there's actually no reason to party? i don't know. that's just what people expect when they're just turned to their eighteens. you should party every friday and saturday night and after all that, survive from school and hobbies. i'm not made to sleep only 4 hours per night and to study hard 8 hours a day. no way. so i'm not going to party tonight. i'm going to relax and enjoy my time here as i am, watching the beautiful scene outside.

one week ago it snowed and it felt funny after this warm autumn. i thought it'd be like every november: it starts suddenly and next morning it's turned to water. but this year seems to be very exraordinady, indeed. last winter was extremely cold and there were so much snow that we had to shovel it off from our roof because the mass off snow was dangerously heavy.  last summer was the hottest ever been in finland before and now it's 15 degrees colder than normally in november! crazy, isn't it? so now i have very wintry and christmasy feeling. high snow drifts, dark almost the whole day and the sky looks very beautiful with brightly shining stars. jingle bells, jingle bells...
love, f

I grew up with Harry Potter. Did you?

So, it's finally November and I'm attending NaNoWriMo right now, like last year. Only last year I got bored with my story so fast that I never finished it. Now I'm writing something I've been planning for half a year already, and I'm really excited about it. As I'm writing this, my word count is 12 295, so yay.

About the story I'm writing then: it's a Harry Potter fanfic (as the smartest ones might already have realised after reading the title of this post). It's slash (this means two blokes doin' it). It's going to be very canon (which means I'll try to change the original story and the characters as little as possible). It starts somewhere in 1976 and ends in May 2 1998. And it involves my long-time OTP (one true pairing), Remus and Severus. So, do you think I can do it?

I believe I can. So come on November, bring it on!

we're spinning on our heels

 Dear, dear Katie, what have you done lately
I've heard it's all going on...

It's been a while since i posted last time. But that's life so you just have to accept it. My life has been during these weeks like a pipebomb which is going to explode on any second - and still three weeks left before I really can relax a bit and think if I've failed or succeeded. We'll see. Now I have two different lighting productions coming up: some theatre and dance, and I'm getting pretty nervous. Last time I designed any lights was in August and two month brake is a way too much for me. So it takes some time to get the hang of. Hope it'll go well.  Everybody trust me.

But thank god there's some great and happy things coming soon too, as James Blunt is going to save me on next Monday! His new album Some Kind of a Trouble is out then (8th November) and it's gonna be so great (even thought I, in theory, don't have any money). I've already heard couple songs like the single Stay the Night and it's brilliant. Just absolutely brilliant. It's totally different from what we're used to hear from James. It's fresh, happy, and it makes me smile like an idiot. Yeah, I'm not joking. I'm sure everybody remember his earlier hits You're Beautiful and 1973 and know that they're everything but happy. But this album makes the difference: the whole album will be good mooded. So it's totally unresistable as I love smiling and happy music. I hope others will understand me and agree because James Blunt is a man of my life (well one of them..) and I've been waiting this for soo long.

Here. Stay the Night.
