    week at the Valo Hotel

    Collaboration with Valo Hotel Lately I've struggled with finding time to work on my PhD. I'm sure many people working from home find themselves taking care of stuff at home instead of concentrating solely on their work. So I figured I'd get back on track by working outside the house for a while and so I moved to Valo hotel for a week so that I wouldn't have any distractions...

    How to really protect animals?

    I just arrived from Ruka last night and coming back I kept thinking about animal rights, so I thought I'd share some pictures from our trip while discussing the topic on my mind. First of all, I wouldn't go to a tiger petting zoo or participate in anything else where I think animals aren't treated well. I love animals...

    The future of the blog

    When we got engaged in the summer 2019 I started thinking how fun it would be to start writing a wedding blog. I had thought about writing a blog about renovating our condo but now I had an even better reason, it would be nice to have all my experiences from our wedding year saved in a blog where I could read about them years to come.

    The week of our wedding: Day 2

    Today I woke up at 6.30am and was not happy about it. I just have to hope I'll sleep better tonight, or really any night before the wedding. When I read my emails it turned out that a package I had ordered from Zalando and needed for the wedding had returned to them for some mysterious reason. It wouldn't arrive in time if I were to order it again so the day started with a call and a message to their customer service. A few hours, two calls and a few messages later, it became clear that they weren't going to fix the situation so I probably won't get it then...

    The week of our wedding: Day 1

    Collaboration with Villi Vanilja It's started - our wedding week! I'm going to try to write something about what I've been up to on each day leading up to the wedding. Today I woke up at 8.30 to some wedding dream again. I think all the excitement and maybe some stress too is affecting my sleep as I really would've needed more sleep...
