Jack O'Lanter and the ultimate debate









 I spent my thursday with Kim, the exchanger from USA, and two girls from school... we tried to make our own Jack O'Lantern. I didn't even try to make something good, just cute which is always quite enough.
As always me and Kim ended up debating about food, abviously I win, come on, I'm from Italy... the day's debate was about jerkies, a kind of dried meat to chew. In my opinion it's just dog food...

OCTOBER AND APRIL

















It's time for some hot tea and great chocolate. The days are getting shorter but I'm not afraid of the dark, I'm afraid of the rain. I hate taking pictures and not having the time to post them.

Try to catch it













 Yesterday I spent a pleasant evening, it was my host-mother's birthday. I made Tiramisú for the first time in my life, the taste was great, the consistency not that much. I don't like eating it in Italy 'cause everybody always make it and gets kind of boring but it was such a great fun making it (I even found Savoiardies in Finland!). My host-mother cooked lihapiirakka and it was delicious!
Tomorrow the autumn holidays start, I like it!

It's a wild world


It's already wednesday and probably the week will pass even faster 'cause I'm attending a finnish course with AFS during the weekend. Sometimes I start thinking that it has been almost two most months since I came to Finland and I start thinking that I should do more or do best but there's no use in worring like that 'cause by now things are going in the best way possible. I getting used to live here and my everyday life is not that boring after all. Beside this every weekend I got something to do in a way or another.
Last weekend I've to the Turvakurssi (security course) with the school. It is basically a course where you learn how to act in case of fire or in others situations of danger and how to give firsthelp. I wasn't sure if I really wanted to attend it that but in Finland my philosophy is to catch every chance to make experiences and stay with new people whatever it comes, and since now it has been working greatly. 
I really had a great fun, I stood all the time with some girls who are friends of my sister and they are very nice. I had the chance to try to talk a little bit more (my language skills are improving day by day) and to eat a lot of junk food.
It was a proper camping, sleeping in a tent, grilling food (every kind of food, really) and freezing.
The first day we build up the camp and in the end we had a lot of free time which means food time. The next day we did orientering (me and B got third!), switched fires, took long and boring lessons, search of a lost person (no for real obvs.) and ate ate ate.
The last day we left the in the morning. As we were in a military camp we were wearing all the time military suits, comfortable and warm but so large!Tomorrow I'm going to Vaasa for a university lesson, I can't way to be there and use my free time there to shop. More pictures coming soon of course!
