My New Year's resolution, I suppose, could be: "Be more active on LJ."

I don't really even know why I haven't written anything since that latest whine about my love life in November(!!). I mean, there have been many times when I've had a whole post envisioned in my head but for some reason never got around to writing it down. You know what I mean?

But it's funny: I don't know if it's the New Year and a sort of feeling of a clean slate or what, but I have a feeling that something has changed, and I daresay in a positive way. Like I've managed to let go of some burden that has weighed heavy on my shoulders and held me back or something. Strange, really, 'cause I can't say what it is exactly.
Ah well, maybe it's just the slowly but surely increasing light. *shrug*

ETA: Oh, right. I was supposed to talk about the New Year. *facepalm* Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] korppis.
We spent it rather traditionally at Ella's family cabin in Laitila (this small rural town a bit north from Turku) by a frozen lake in the middle of the woods. Lots of awesome people, booze, SingStar, a wooden hot tub by the lake, full moon and -30 Celsius. :D
I really felt rather Finnish at one point, running from the cabin to the sauna in the snow and under the starlit sky with a bottle of alcoholic beverage in my hand, wearing only a long woolen jumper and combat boots. At least I didn't yell "Perkele!" as I went. :D It was awesome. <3

Oh! We also have a cat now. Riimu (means "rune"), Tommi's old cat, has been living with his sister for a couple of years, but now she has a boyfriend who's allergic so she decided to give her to us when we were visiting Tommi's parents over the holidays.
She's a lovely creature, especially when you compare her to the previous cat I had. It's nice to be able to walk past a cat lounging on the floor without having to fear for your ankles. xD But then, she's 7 years old already, a graceful lady and not a hotheaded teenager. Though we're considering getting her a playmate sometime soon, an orphan kitty rescued from the streets of Estonia probably. I'm determined to get my Romana. :D

(BTW, I just realized the ornament in my teaspoon resembles the Seal of Rassilon. O_o)

Being more active on LJ isn't the only thing I need to work on, though. The fourth episode of Cloud Islands is approaching and I have four characters to write. I know, it's only four, but I seem to suffer from a horrible writer's block lately. :( I mean, Ares'tes for example, I have a pretty clear vision of what he's like inside my head, but I just have no idea how to put that into words. The fact that I have to write the characters from pre-existing templates and be sure to get all the plots right makes it even harder. I guess I need to discuss that more with Ella and Janina. *sigh*

But hey: I thought I'd lost pretty much all interest towards LARP but now I'm actually looking forward to the WoD scenario in February. And Merirosvopoukama (The Pirate Cove) as well. :)

And I also need to contact Riku (my awesome career counselor) and get my backside back to the library since my only source of income at the moment is the housing allowance, which is some 56€. Yay...
And have the blood tests taken and remember to take my meds every day. This year, I will be better.

Oh, and one more thing: Being Human's second series starts on Sunday! <3<3<3

I know that the time is actually linear, not cyclic and the New Year is just a ordinary day in a cycle of earth that was for one reason or another chosen to be the point where us westerners count the beginning of a new year... Easterns f.ex had theirs still coming.

But somehow it made me feel that sometimes all you need to get your head off your ass and forget all the crappiness of the pile of dung called 2009 is one awesome day (or weekend) that makes you remember that now and then life can bee good :)

Veemeli sai minutkin innostumaan visioistaan sen verran että voisin ensimmäistä kertaa harkita sortuvani VoD-larppiin. Ja jopa (omg) kaupunkipeliin!

Welcome back, love. :) Funny thing, but I also have a feeling this year is better - at least last three weeks have been quite nice actually. Finally some happiness in my life - though it might still be a bit mess. Good luck, my friend, let's make 2010 a year to be proud of? ;)

Absolutely! :)
And I'm glad your life is starting to look more bright as well. ^_^

Yeah i know the feeling, that you got rid of some sort of burden. Last year in september I didn't feel too well and getting into 2010 was something like "oh, so I finished 2009, that's it, I'm feeling great!". It's actually the idea that another year is complete and you can leave behind whatever burden you had, because it's fully in the past.

1. Minkä supervoiman haluaisit itsellesi?
2. Jos sinun pitäisi luopua joko sormistasi tai jaloistasi, kummasta luopuisit?
3. Haastavin asia mitä olet koskaan tehnyt?
4. Tanssiminen vai laulaminen, kummassa haluaisit olla muita parempi jos voisit olla todella hyvä?
5. Mitkä nimet antaisit lapsillesi?
