  • GOING PLACES THIS SUMMER

    Tiina Kivelä

    What I’ve been up to? Having kind of staycation; hanging around cafe’s, working on my tan (hello awesome cyclist tan lines!) and enjoying views. Drinking coffee and planning; going places this summer, so to speak.

    Germany and friend’s birthday. Switzerland and biking. Some festival, somewhere. And I should also decide where’s the next address; where I’m drinking my morning coffee this summer (with mountain views, please). Though I have to admit I’m not sure if i’m more positively or negatively terrified by the unknown future. One day it’s all fine – when nothing is sure everything is possible, but on the other I slip into thinking how I could stay at the comfort zone too… Or at least closer to that than I currently am.

    But well, easy’s rarely interesting nor rewarding. And the real comfort zone is waiting in the end of all this struggle, trying and fighting.

    Until that – make that espresso doppio, please.

  • WEDNESDAY WHINE

    Tiina Kivelä

    Sorry for the whine, but since I’m not Beyonce I can’t make LEMONADE when life gives me lemons*. So I’ll just whine like this.

    Sometimes they all break on the same time and now’s the sad sometimes. List of broken things: iPhone, 2x bike, eyes (one can say eyes are broken when ones need new glasses / contact lenses to really see with them, right?), watch and running shoes (I guess they are broken when one has run “too much” with them – this month 100km, krhm).

    Luckily bike’s being fixed by someone else, parents sponsor the watch (birthday coming up soon, krhm II) and iPhone would also be sponsored if only they’d sell the [SE] in Finland already (the time it takes for those to arrive this part of the world really makes Finland part of the Eastern, not Weastern Europe, imo.). And the running shoes… Well, other three pairs have to substitute while the broken pair waits a sponsor to emerge from somewhere.

    And top of everything the weather… Oh it’s so british! Cold rain, day after day.

    I really need that getaway. And maybe a dollar or do for all that’s broken.

    * Well I make creamy lemon pasta… And if I’d have the means I’d make sima too, since it’s that time of the year in Finland.

  • RIDE

    I’ve never really been into cars or other motorized vehicles. I’m more into burning my own energy. But lately, I’ve surpiserd myself thinking how nice it would be to just ride. Wherever, whenever. But like with skis, I’d need some sponsors first…


    Kevät ja auto / kelkkakuume. Sponsoreita?
