5 Fandom Friday: Christmas Wish List

This 5 Fandom Friday post is a bit late due to my unfortunate case of very Christmas-y bronchitis and the merry after-present of an allergic reaction to my antibiotics. However, as I haven’t done these 5 Fandom Friday posts in a long while, I’ll consider this a success! Hopefully now I’ll have more time to blog that I’m on Christmas break :)

So, this (last) week’s topic was “Christmas wish list”, which was a fun coincidence since I was going to post one already. My fandoms are all over the place in this list and there were so many items I wanted to include, that I ended up making a bit of a different kind of division between the things:

  • reading (most of my wishes are books…or a poster about books)
  • writing (writing guides are lovely)
  • toys (one is never too old…)
  • clothing (Hobbit-themed T-shirt is a must!)
  • and organization (I desperately need a diary¬†for 2016)

Life Lately: Fall Semester Shenanigans

life lately

This semester has been really crazy: I took a lot of courses for my MA studies and somehow in between all my classes I managed to have some resemblance of a social life as well as travel a bit.

When summer was ending and school only starting, we did a short weekend trip to my boyfriend’s cabin, which was a great was to get away from the busy everyday life. We also celebrated our third anniversary shortly after that. I was involved in some events for the new freshmen, which was a great way to get into the swing of things at school.

I also managed to have time for the art fair and a trip to Suomenlinna and to Tallinn.

I also saw the first football game of my life this fall – Ari dragged me to the Finland vs. Romania match, which was surprisingly entertaining even for me (I have never followed sports of any kind).

Midway through the semester I went to the book fair (an annual visit for me) and then I visited Ireland for the first time ever. I loved that trip and everyone there was incredibly friendly.

I’ve been doing a lot of work, running the Helsinki chapter of Her Campus. For our Snapshot articles, I’ve attended a lot of art shows, which is a lot of fun!

The last Hobbit just came out and we went to line up for the midnight premiere tickets for the special night event, which effectively destroyed our sleep rhythm.

We also organized a Her Campus Helsinki bake sale, which was a big hit. Now, classes are over and we just have our finals left, which is something we had to celebrate with some Chinese food in Kaisaniemi.

Christmas is almost here and I can’t believe how fast the fall semester went by! Hopefully 2015 will be just as amazing as this year!
