Where I'm Coming From And Where I'm Going
This challenge was in many blogs, so I decided to do it too :) I copied the questions from Misantrella's blog! And kept her added length, because I'm pretty old ;P I used some old pictures from the blog so it wouldn't be super boring.
20 years ago...
I had just started school and our family had moved to a new house, I had left all my friends and a nanny I liked behind.
I liked to draw and paint and dreamed of having a pet.
15 years ago...
I got an aquarium and put some guppies in it! One was named Jafar after the villain in Disney's Aladdin.
I read Lord of the Rings and Hobbit and really fell in love with the world of fantasy.
I was bullied in school and found solace in books and drawing.
10 years ago...
I was seventeen, listened to the Sisters of Mercy and used to spend weekends drinking wine with my friends.
I decided to get good grades for my abitur (ylioppilaskirjoitukset), and did it (with lots of hard work)!
Got my first Pennangalan boots with money I saved from mopping the floors of a local supermarket. I still have the boots and used them just last summer :)
5 years ago...
I was studying graphic design.
I had just ended a long relationship and hopped on to a new one, but what I really would have needed was to spend some time with myself.
I started my career in the games industry by getting a trainee position in a mobile games company.
3 years ago...
I had just bough an apartment and put up the fanciest wallpaper ever with the help of my brother!
I was living alone and single, really getting to know who I am and what I want.
The company I worked for was dissolved and I moved on to work with a new, small games company.
I got my first leopard gecko! Got her from a pet expo, where I promised myself I could look at the snakes on sale and wouldn't buy any. They had one gecko at the table too, so that wasn't a snake and I bought her ;P
1 year ago...
I was living with my other half, we had moved in together a few months ago.
I had been at my current position at work for a year and really liked it.
I dyed my hair purple from the cotton candy pink I had worn for some time.
The past year....
I've gotten rid of some stuff I've lugged around for far too long.
Got the sofa of my dreams!
I started a blog.
I've dreamed of a new kitten, but my other half is kinda right that five cats is enough. Kitten cams are a good substitute ;P
I've been working hard to get closer to people, I'm so used to tackling everything alone that I seem to push people away. I think I've done very well so far :)
Made an offer for an apartment (well, not I, but we because my other half will own half of it!)
Ate a delicious sushi lunch! The sushi buffet next to the office is going to be the death of me ;P
Put up posters for the upcoming Samhain party.
Will not go to the sushi buffet, but be a good girl and eat the lunch I brought from home.
Am hoping we will get a response from the real estate agent, the best thing would be if the seller would accept our offer!
Hope I have the time to make some stuff for the Samhain party, decoration is almost done (thanks to my lovely friends who helped!), just a few finishing touches and nice envelopes for the dress competition prizes.
Have a yoga class in the evening. I hope I'll do better than last week, because the push-ups they added to the sun salutation are really tricky for my spaghetti arms!
Will be sore from the yoga ;)
It's Friday, so we will have some pastries in the office. This week it's my duty to pick them up!
I'll maybe go and have a beer or two somewhere, or just watch Star Trek at home if I'm feeling lazy.
The day after tomorrow I....
I have to check if I have any plans! My iPhone decided to call it quits, so I don't have my calendar and really can't remember if I have anything on Saturday ;P
Will stop by the flea market.
Maybe take some pictures outside if the weather is nice.
In a year I...
Hope me and my other half have found a nice apartment at a good price.
(If we get the one we are bidding for now, I hope we have had the money to renovate the kitchen)
Might have a new cat.
Am better at yoga!
Hope I'll continue in the same job, working on some new, exciting project.
Want to be as happy as now :)
