feet week friday

My whole day was devoted to moving. It wasn`t as hard as I thought - I didn`t have that many boxes of stuff after all. Actually me and sis were mostly quick and efficient (thanks to P who helped us load the car!). The hardest part was putting together my new Ikea bookshelf ...I guess everyone who`s ever put together Ikea furniture knows what I mean! We also found a pizza/kebab place near the apartment, it was surprisingly nice - and the pizzas were huge.


ready to go...


The weekend will be devoted to some cleaning here in Helsinki and meeting friends. And taking time to think about the feet week photos - mostly I`ve snapped them in hurry to do something else. Like today. Sorry!


my feet in the morning light - and my jeans really aren`t as long as they seem!



I`m so glad this week is almost over. It`s been a very stressful one: the first days in the university (I`m very good at getting stressed about things like that and feeling like I`m doing the wrong thing etc.), moving, and something happening that made me worry about a friend - a lot. And because of/in addition to that I`ve slept too little, or not at all, most nights*. I even kind of began to hope I`d be a smoker, just to have something to calm my nerves while high on caffeine and adrenalin. I`ve tried crocheting instead, because smoking my first cigarette ever and choking on the smoke at this age would`ve just been too embarrassing! Oh well, life goes on, things will get easier with the time, even the extremely difficult ones.

*I blame my insomnia for the bad English in the last few posts - I better shape up before I have to write my first paper!

Sorry, if I'm curious, but is that all your stuff? Lucky you then...
when we move last summer we fill up two lorrys (about 100 m3)...puh!

ingridviola - Oh, thank you! I thought they were rather boring, but they`re so comfortable I had to buy them. :)

maria - It`s okay to be curious ;)- and I wish that was all of my stuff! I left most of my things in Helsinki for the time being, I`m very lucky I could do that, since I`ve got a piano (and lots of other stuff) and I`d been forced to get a bigger and much more expensive apartment if I`d taken everything with me... Now I get to pretend I`m a minimalist. :)

Oh, wow, your move sounds just like mine! HA! I couldn't sleep for a week, and I was miserable, but so happy that you found a nice place to eat, always a plus, and have time for friends. Also, dude, I know what you mean about Ikea furniture, I built a malm bed and dresser and 3 chairs! I wanted to throw it out the window. Cute feet! Love the yellow shoes. Thanks so much for your comments on my blog, so happy to see you stopped by.
