IKEA

We went to IKEA today to look for a new computer table for our bedroom. Now when we have two computers it’s getting harder to find the places for them. I would love to have all the electronical stuff somewhere hidden, but of course that doesn’t work out in our small apartment. I decided the table we now have for the bedroom computer must turn to our new kitchen table, and that we must get a tiny table that doesn’t take all the space from the bedroom.

I will take some photos of our bedroom once I get in ready. Somehow it just seems to take ages… I’ve talked about this like hundreds of times but I should paint our walls. Or not that I’m doing it alone, no. Somehow I’ve managed to get some great family members that are willing to help me out!

Today I’m about to go to see Juho’s gig in Nosturi, Helsinki and I should propably get going now. Just wanted to make this quick post about the tables and keep you updated.

Love,

Just Because You’re Breathing Doesn’t Mean You’re Alive

Okay you guys, I’ve been looking for a new day job from my home city lately. After some serious brainstorms about what I want to do with my life I got employed to the most amazing clothing company. I start as a visual merchandiser which seems like a perfect job for me. It’s close enough to my visual backround, but still far enough from everything else I do in my life. I didn’t actually want to find a graphic designer’s job, because the industry is filled with all sorts of companies, and to be honest I haven’t faced a company with my kind of people. The most important thing to me is to feel like I can be who I am and the other people respect me for that. Not because they think I look like a bunny, or listen to a particular type of music or seem to have a good amount of friends. I want to work in an atmosphere where all of our members are being loved for being individuals.

So all I can say is that I’m extremely happy and honoured for being part of such an amazing group. We will start building our new store in the beginning of next week and I already know it’s going to look incredible. Actually me and one of my coworkers got an invitation to Denmark to visit one of their biggest stores and went through some training this week. We met some of the most amazing people on that trip – not to mention my colleague, with whom I found a total understanding straight away! Most of all I loved the happiness in Danish people and I will definitely go back someday.

And of course I couldn't leave without having my final Danish cup of coffee, that I bought from this funny little coffee shop at the airport. I'm not so sure about the taste of my Ginger Coffee, but the place definitely had a good spirit!

Now when the things in my life are better than in a long time I can’t be thankful enough for everything I’ve got. I wish we could all be proud of ourselves – everyday.
