another spark

label: and some things — CV @ 11:41 PM

I was heading out to a job interview. Walked down the stairs, turned the corner and stopped to stare at that PVC floor mat neatly placed against the wall opposite of the entrance.

Looks familiar.

I blushed, took a quick glance around and carried it up. Yeah, I moved in a week ago. Yeah, I had been walking past it every day many times. Have I noticed it? Nope!

No comments.

So I got it. What now?

International Experience Canada approved my application for a work permit.

I was so sure not to get it. I had totally soured those grapes in my thoughts. Huhh, really, now what?

I will get my internet connection back on 18th of March. Yes, I am annoyed and angry at that idiot in Elisa shop who messed up.

I fill my netless days with unpacking, getting to know my new hometown, sitting in library filling job applications etc.

See you when the spring is here :D

another realization

Today is the day of unfortunate calls. Maybe I should stop answering my phone so the bad news won’t reach me?

I am a magnet. Messmagnet. It is amazing how I attract all kind of mess.

Packing and moving and packing and running around and trying to stay on top of administrative errands.

another day on slope

-22C and frozen eyelashes. Empty slopes and my joy over it. Ice, ice and ice. Everything I breathed on froze, especially my ski mask in front of my nose. Falling and sliding down the hill head first on my back. Laugh! That was the best about this evening. Laugh!

I am so scared that I feel sick.

I hate Tallink on Estonian side. I hate it, I hate it, I hate it! I wish there was an alternative to travel between Tallinn and Helsinki, but there isn’t. Departure from Helsinki is usually totally OK and no complains, but on Tallinn’s side … ARRRGH! Every time they enrage me and I arrive at home in a really bad mood.

I was the last car, and I mean literally last car, off the last ship at Helsinki tonight. Was I last to arrive at check in? No. Was I even late to arrive at check in? No. Was I last to arrive to the ship? No. Did my car have trouble driving off the ship? No. It is just the way Tallink works. You may be the first person in check in and they still arrange you to be among the last to get off (has happened to me). Those guys who are in charge of the car loading should get themselves some Statoil gift packages. I wish they would burn!

another moment

Sitting with Rein and talking, talking, talking. It was nice to see him after all those years. Calming. The way he is.

A moment. We were earnestly engaged in discussion about wrinkles and puffy eyes. No, I was not the one to start it. Rein complained about getting old!
