last day of August

label: haven — CV @ 9:00 PM

I love Augusts. I have said it as many times in here as there is age to this blog and countless times more in real life. My favorite time of the year – August. Warm and dark summer nights that are perfect for dreaming.

This August has somehow sneaked past me. I remember it starting and today I realized it is ending. So I did all my favorite things to make up for this “lost” time. I walked in the rain, I took time and relaxed into this still evening and now I am sitting on the balcony star gazing. Perfect!

another realization

Another busy day is flying by. Once again I speeded it up somehow. I honestly didn’t have any intention to do that. Again.

grand finale

To top this week off I finally managed to knock over a glass of water on my work table.

Weird week.

another moment

So I was awake last night. Tossing and turning and trying to fall asleep again. Sleeping on my belly is one of my favorite positions and always helps.

Hmm. Someone was not happy with this position! No kicking, but I felt a concrete push few times. OK, got it! No more sleeping on my belly.

another morning

Some days, one wishes one could have stayed in bed …

Prof. put it exactly how it is. I would like to say this about this whole week and not only this morning, but this morning has been the worst so far. First 3 days of this week I have managed to avoid bad consequences at the last second, but this morning I was few seconds too late. The train started moving exactly when I realized that I don’t have my monthly pass with me. 20,20€ to Tampere and 17,20€ back. I knew it will happen one day even thou I have been checking every morning, when I leave home, that I have office keys and the train pass with me. Why didn’t I do it this morning? No idea, but it probably had something to do with the lack of sleep. I woke up around 3 AM and I finally fell to some half-sleep two hours later. I also managed to broke my favorite headphones this morning, pour coffee on myself and to top it off – I had a real emotional breakdown because some of my family members lack any EQ whatsoever.

I think I should go and buy myself a lottery ticket today.

another morning

I have been wondering when it will happen. Today was the day.

I missed my morning train.

I have come close for few times, but today was the morning when I was standing on the plaform, breathless, looking at the moving train.

Damn traffic!!! Why do people always forget how to drive when there is even a dribble of rain? This traffic jam this morning was the worst I’ve seen.

UPDATE: And on my way back from work I almost forgot to get off the train. I took a different train home than usual and I noticed literally at the last second that the train had been standing in Hämeenlinna for quite a while.

another morning

Another busy morning. Busy, busy, busy. I wanted to write about skydiving and how sad I feel because I have to stop, but this has to wait again. How do I make myself so busy all the time?

The wonders of life and cliches. The button of my pants decided to leave its place in the middle of the day today.

another morning

Good morning sunshine! The clouds hang low. Somewhere at 300 or 400 meters only, but there is no upper layer and the sun escapes every now and then to disturb me from my thoughts of work and upcoming presentation today.

I am on my way to work on a train again. Like every morning. I enjoy those morning rides because of their tranquility. I belong here. I belong exactly into this moment.

another moment

I am so grateful that skydiving has taught me to look at the skies. Constantly. The wonder of clouds and colours.

I just looked out the window of my office. Blue sky at the distance. Really light blue. The colour it gets on July. A bit worn and whitish, but blue. To my left there was solid white blanket of cloud spread across the horizon. White mist at the high levels silently creeping in to cover that blue sky. And then just over my head was darkest of dark menacing cloud of thunder and rain. First parts of it where hanging low – ready to fall and only waiting for that last drop to condense into it and tip the scale.
