Spring is the best time for promises

I haven’t been posting to my blog for a really while.

Health problems, mood swings and work at the Uni took away all my energy. But I want to say enough!

I want to tell what’s new in my life and show the pictures I’m taking. I want to get better body, and find some time to learn Finnish. So I will start all of it today. 1st of March, why not?

So here is my promise-list to myself for this month. I promise:

  • To publish new photos at my blog at least every week;
  • Too finish my first article;
  • To do sports at least 3 times per week;
  • To learn Finnish at least 3 times per week;
  • To eat not more than 1400 kkal per day;
  • To keep track of weight and body parameters;
  • To make at least 2 romantic dinners with my hubby.

Let’s see what will happen! I know I can make it! =)

Anyways, spring is here! And how are you guys doing?




Breathtaking adventure at Laajavuori

The more I live in Jyvaskyla the more I feel it is a perfect city for me to live in.

I can always find something new and exciting about it. For example, last weekend me and my hubby decided to try amazing Laajavuori adventure rope park.


First of all, I’ll talk about price. Finland is pretty expensive country to live in, but price at the adventure park is relatively good. It is 25 euros as participation fee and 3 euros for special gloves.


After you pay a fee and get “dressed”, an instructor will tell you what to do (and not to do) at the rope park. Instructor speaks English, so there will be no problems in understanding for foreigners. And after the instruction we were allowed to try the real adventure park.


And it was SOOOOOO cool!


The park is full of different tracks with different difficulty levels, so it will be fun for everyone. In our case we spend 2 hours to try 4 different tracks. And we totally enjoyed it.




So if you want to try something extreme in Jyvaskyla – this park is a great place to visit!

I’m back again!

It’s been REALLY a while since the last post in this blog.

Well, my crazy life just couldn’t let me do all the things I want, so I had to skip blogging for a while. But just to let you know,  I’m doing great! First of all, I had an operation and it well great. The problem tissue was deleted and now I’m having half a year of hormonal therapy to cure the problem totally.

Second, I finally have got a paid position at the faculty! Yay! Now it will be easier to do research, without thinking should I find a job. And research will be my job! It’s just like a dream! =)

Next Friday I will introduce our group to a group of freshman students, so if I will do it good we will probably have new group members.


I hope you all head a great summer, and let’s have a great Fall!

P.S. In Russia 1st of September is a knowledge day. So happy knowledge day!
