I'm writing this on the train coming back from our summer place, to copy-paste later to lj. They promise wireless internet on these trains, but even when I could find it it was a joke, loading a page for five minutes. Now I can't find it at all, so I'm doing what I can unconnected. I'm angry with the trains today anyway. This one is 45 minutes late as I write this, the one I took to go to the cottage was an hour and a half late arriving to Kuopio. I wouldn't have minded so much that my four hour journey turned into five and a half hours, if the air conditioning in the train hadn't been broken. Also, I would've stood the sitting in 35 C for so long, had they kept us better posted on what was going on, but no. Overall not happy with the our national railways right now. I know the lateness is because of the thunderstorms lately, but I really think they could learn to cope with the weathers of this country. They are late in the winter because of snow and freezing temperatures in the winter and thunderstorms in the summer...

Other than the trains, my mini summer holiday has been quite enjoyable. I was at our summer cottage for my meager five days (a weekend and three days of unpaid leave). I swam in the lake and sauna-ed (is there an actual verb for that in english?) to my heart's content. Dad took me fishing a lot, I chopped firewood, and we all went on a boat trip.

I feel very out of the loop on fandom, even though I was away from the internet for maybe a week tops. This fandom is too fastpaced for an old hag like me...

 Humm. It's too damn hot to think straight here. So a perfect time to post on lj. As my last post was in february or something, you see how well the eljaying has been going... it's just that I'm not as interested in posting about my life as I am interested in following certain fandoms, so the account is more a tool for that.

Oh well, might as well actually write at least something about my life... so, the new job is pretty much what I thought it would be when I signed up, only maybe a bit more stressful. It's weird, but I feel as though I have found my long lost work ethic there. I often have to drag myself away, because I keep thinking I'll only do that one thing more, I'll only stay this much longer so maybe one more person will get the treatment they need. But maybe it's just what working in the health care system will do to you (at least until it makes you a cynic).

I've been offered to stay at least until the end of the year, so that's good. Especially since they don't really offer any courses at the uni this fall that would actually further my graduating, so. I think I might take on Korean just for the heck of it.

Edit: Also it seems I missed Omona having open membership! I totally live in the wrong timezone for these things... I got so excited when I noticed that I clicked it and applied for membership before checking and apparently it's closed again :( Feeling like a total idiot over here.

Edit the second: I got in yey! So confused but excited to actually get to participate!

Guess who has a new job for the summer? Yeah, that would be me. *throws a party*

I'm super excited about this, for more reasons than one. Firstly, I'm financially ok for at least another four months (maybe more, if they decide to keep me around after the summer). Secondly, I get to say buh-bye to my current job (I'm so sick of it, goddamn!). Thirdly, the job seems to be one of those that you can leave at the workplace at the end of your day. Fourthly, I don't need to go through another year of looking for a summer job and getting rejected a million times (yeah, I got this one through "connections", and am not ashamed! Yey for nepotism!).

I got the news on friday, and ever since I've been on a very good mood. Nothing seems to make an impact right now. Super busy and stressful time at current job? Don't care, I'm outta here in two months time. Demanding stuff to do school-wise? Don't care, 'cause guess who got a job! etc etc.

I'm just so fucking relieved it's insane.

Ugh, I hate the winter sometimes. It's not great for a person with dry skin.

My left elbow is so dry it hurts. I've been putting moisturiser on it several times a day, but to no avail. Mysteriously, the right one is fine.

I should really go to sleep now, I'm just hoping that this stupid elbow isn't gonna keep me awake.

So I was here last almost four years ago.

I'm not really sure what happened back then to make me stop using it, but I did. Maybe there was just too much going on in my life at the time.

So why am I back? New fandom. Fandom made me get this account all those years ago and it made me reclaim it now.

I f-locked all those entries from way back when, just because. We'll see how this goes.
