A Little of Everything

I don't have much time to write or blog-hop, but I want to write an update on everything, so let me just write a list.

1. Yesterday I went to get my new residence permit and turned out that starting last year, the first residence permit extension was given for 4-year period. My first residence permit was only valid for a year and now the new one is valid until 2012. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYY!!! ;-D

2. I've been suffering from acne breakout again ever since I stopped taking my birth control pills, so today I went out to the pharmacy to buy something. The pharmacist suggested Basiron AC, benzoyl peroxide. I sure DO hope it'll help my skin! If not, then I'll have to do something else as they start popping out here and there even more and more. URRRGGHHH!!!!!!

3. The snow has been melting again today and in some parts they're already gone. I've been wearing my trekking spikes since yesterday and I can say that they REALLY work, except inside buildings. The only trouble is taking them off inside buildings and putting them on again before I venture out he he he...But it's all GOOD. ;-D I LOVE those things!!!

And guess what? Finally spring is COMIIINNNGGGGGGGG to Sodankylä he he he...

4. Last night I laughed SO much so that my stomach muscles got SO sore. I almost couldn't stop laughing even though my jaws were hurting. Hubby just shook his head hi hi hi hi...Why did I laugh? I watched some VERY SILLY videos on youtube he he he he he he he...Boy, laughing that much made me feel SO YOUNG hi hi hi hi...

5. My nose is still a bit runny, but I've felt fit enough to do my Taebo sessions again, so that's VERY good, since I've been eating too much these days hi hi hi hi...Need to burn the extra calories!!! *wink*

Anyway, take good care, everybody! I can't wait for this weekenddddddddd!!! I'll blog-hop later when I have time, OK?

To my Brit friend MC, you're in my prayers. I wish you THE BEST in everything. I hope you can stay here in Sodankylä so that your boys can continue their studies here, but whatever happens, I'm crossing my fingers for youuuuuuuuuuuuuu...Life has many surprises. We'll see what life has in store for you after the course is done.


  1. glad to hear that you still happy although you're busy with your study.

  2. I've always wanted to live at a place that had all the four seasons.. must be syiok eh..

  3. The first graphic is SO cute hi hi...

    Exercise... I'm still lack of energy because of this sore throat and coughing. Good to hear that you are doin' great and full of laughter. Just wondering... Is MC leaving?? Well, have a fun Spring buddy!!! :)

  4. Hi Amelia! sorry to hear about the acne breakout :( Great to hear about your residence permit :) Cool! I haven't had too much time to bloghop or post anything substantial lately :( Hopefully I will have more time soon :)

  5. Hey Amelia,

    I am so glad that you are feeling much much better :D!

    About your acne breakouts: just think that it is for a good cause :-D!

    May the light be with your Brit friend, everything works out for the best, in the end :)!

    Spring time is also here: 25ºC today, I was soooooo happy :D! I couldn't stand winter anymore, I swear!

    Sleep tight and have sweet dreams ;)


  6. So nice to be experiencing 4 seasons. Show us some nice pic of Spring over there. Take care :)

  7. Good for you getting your residents pass. I felt a similar way when I got my Greencard over here, it's definitely a cause for celebration.

    Have a lovely weekend,
    Fish x

  8. Congrats on your permit, Amel!!

  9. Jeanne: Yeah, still happy he he...Hope you are happy, too! ;-D

    LJ: Well, maybe someday you can try living in a four-season country. Who knows? ;-D

    Choc Mint Girl: HE HE HE HE...Glad you liked it! If you still don't feel energized, it's very wise that you postpone exercising. You should listen to your body. ;-D

    And MC doesn't want to leave, but we'll see how it goes. She has to deal with bureaucracy again at the end of this year. I hope she can stay here with her family. ;-D

    La delirante: Yeah, the acne breakout is really annoying he he he...Oh well...such is life he he he he...nobody's without problems he he he...

    And I understand that you've been busy. Don't worry! ;-D

    Max: Yeah, you're right! I try to think positive about the acnes even though I despise them HA HA HA...

    And AMEN for my Brit friend! It's already THAT HOT there? It's still around 0 here, though he he he...

    You too, Maxine dear, sleep tight and sweet dreams!!! ;-D

    Janice: It hasn't come fully yet. I'll take pics when it's come full force, OK? ;-D

    Fish: You got your greencard already? That's WONDERFUL!!! ;-D I'll definitely celebrate it myself when I've got the citizenship in another few years (hopefully) he he he...
