Stealing Kisses on My 2nd Day at the Course

Well, this morning Sleepyhead me had a HAAAARRRDDDDD time waking up. Last night Arttu asked me what time I wanted to get up and I said 7 am. He woke up at around 6.45 am and then my alarm rang twice, at 7 am and 7.10 am, but I fell right back to sleep and managed to dream about something as well!!! I only woke up when Arttu came into the room with a smile on his face HA HA HA HA HA...

THANK YOU SO MUCH, Darling, for waking me up with a smile and not a frown!!! It certainly made my day MUCH sweeter!!!

After I got myself ready and prepared lunch and everything, I realized that Arttu had left his three mobile phones at home. Two of them are his and one of them is from his office. I was wondering whether I should have brought them with me since after all, my classroom is right next to his office. However, I wasn't sure that he would be there (he goes out a lot to fix computers and ATMs in banks or schools, so he doesn't stay in the office all the time). So I just walked to the course. It was -16'C, but funnily enough, I found that it wasn't as freezing as before. Interesting!!! Especially after walking fast for 5 minutes HA HA HA HA HA...

Today's lesson was fun in parts, since there are several funny people in our classroom. We had a few laughs and I'm looking forward to that again. We also conversed during lunch break, so it was good to get to know one another even more, even though I haven't really spoken to some of them yet ha ha ha ha...

And I got to steal a few kisses from Arttu. *HUGE GRIN* -----> This is probably the BEST part of the day HUA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA...

You see, he called me during my lunch break to ask if I wanted to come home with him. I said no since I had packed my lunch already, so he went home by himself to have lunch and when he got back to the office, I was just about to enter my classroom, so we stole a few kisses outside my classroom. And then I went to the toilet and we ran into each other again and I stole a few more kisses OOOOO YEEEEAAAAHHHH!!!! It felt good to feel "naughty" when nobody was looking HA HA HA HA HA HA HA...

Ahem...OK, well, I learnt many more things today, even though I knew most of them already, but I got to learn some more new words and I got to practise speaking to my mate. I sit next to the Turkish guy and he speaks good English, so we always pair up. His wife is Finnish and he's only been here for two weeks. He lives in Ivalo, farther up north in Lapland, but he actually says that Sodankylä is much colder than Ivalo. Interesting!!!

The Thai girl also doesn't live here, so she and the Turkish guy rent an apartment here (different ones, of course). I think the Turkish guy will learn Finnish quickly since he's pretty determined. Plus he obviously has a knack in learning languages, since he is good at English and he also speaks a little bit of different languages. He used to work in a travel agency, so he picked up street languages. He also lived in Germany and Italy once, so he picked up both languages. For someone who hasn't learnt Finnish at all, he's learning very fast. ;-D I think the Thai girl's the only one who's going to be in BIG trouble, since her English isn't good, so it's gonna be SO difficult for her. Poor girl!!!

My Brit friend MC isn't going to my course full-time anymore since she has to take care of her own business, but she's going to come every morning until lunchtime, then she'll go home. Her husband is going to the course full-time, though.

Oh well...I can still follow the lessons pretty well so far, but I need to learn more on my own as well so that I won't be "lost in translation" HA HA HA HA HA HA HA...

Okie dokie, time to blog hop and right after that I'll study and do my homework. It's not a difficult homework yet. I just need to prepare a few questions to ask my desk mate he he he he...

I'm sorry if I can't visit all your blogs every day since I really have less time to blog, but I'm going to try to visit you whenever I have time, OK???

P.S. Today two other books I won in eBay arrived. They're both in PERFECT shape, so I'm REALLY happy. Even though they're used books, they really look like new. Well, one of them is actually new, so it's really a SUPER GOOD bargain he he he he he...

All in all, all's well that ends well. That's my conclusion for today HE HE HE HE...I certainly hope your day's been as fun as mine.


  1. How hard do you think it will be to learn Finnish??

    Is Finnish part of a larger category of languages?

    For instance, we had a clerk at the law firm from Ukraine, and Ukranian was similar to both Polish and Russian.
    The Romance languages include Italian, Spanish.
    So I was curious about all this, Amel.

  2. Vince: I don't know how hard it is, since it all depends on how much practice you have and how much time you spend on learning it. My Brit friend has been here for 4 years, but since she has a business, she hasn't had time to learn it properly, though she's brave enough to speak it, but I probably know more grammar rules than she does.

    I don't wanna think on how hard it is to learn...I just want to have fun learning it he he he...

    Finnish is similar to Estonian and Hungarian. It's actually different than German, Dutch, French, Swedish, and even Russian he he he he...

  3. Amel oh Amel... your post always makes me smile and you are right stolen kisses are always the best...hehehe... keep the romance going girl!!
