Hyvänmielen lista

Voimaantumislista, parhaimmat, nupit kaakkoon, klassikot, best from the best and so on. We all do it and we've a lot of them. We tend to list the songs we like. Some people do it by genres and some by moods. So, no matter how you're feeling every now and then, you always have that one list of songs that you wanna hear. You press play and after a minute you'll feel much better. Sounds familiar, right?

I cannot categorize my own music taste 'cause it changes repeatedly. Yet, I mainly grew up listening to the same music genres than my brothers. Though, me and my sister had ofcourse our own tastes and favourites but the biggest influence came from the next door. Behind the walls from bros speakers and guitar riffs.  

So close, no matter how far.
Couldn't be much more from the heart.
- Nothing Else Matters

Metallica is the one. Not the one and only, but still. It's the band that was always playing in our house. At least most of the time if I remember correct. It's one of the bands whose songs I've heard probably the most in my life. So far I mean. 

I'm your dream, make you real.
I'm your eyes when you must steal.
I'm your pain when you can't feel.
- Sad But True

I bet many of us have a punch of songs that have some kind of meanings to us. Those that might bring us joy or grief. They might make us either happy or sad. And it's also possible that when we're cheerful and we hear that one specific song which remains us of something not so good (bad times for example) our mood changes in a blink. At that time, moments of happiness turns in to bleak and gloominess. And there's nothing you can do about it.  

And every second I waste
is more than I can take.
- Numb

Songs are meant to be shared. But on the other hand some of them may mean so much more to you than to the people around you. That's why you might occasionally enjoy some songs by yourself. Alone in your own peace so that you can sense every beat and focus on to the lyrics. 

Things aren't the way they were before
you wouldn't even recognize me anymore.
- In the End

Kesän selviytymispakkaus

What's The thing that makes your summer? What do you need to make it a bit better that the previous one? Have you got any must-things-to-do that you simply cannot pass? Any old habits that you tend to do year after year or some wicked or naughty ideas you would like to do?

You can call it survival kit, to-do-list or whatever you want to, you name it. And liked it or not, but now I'm about to share some of my summer thoughts to you fellas. I'll shortly (by few photos) let you know what I'm usually doing when I'm not at work.

Because of the bare fact that I need to work I don't have so much time to do anything during the days. But weekends on the other hand are blessings, pure blisses to my life (and for all the others who are working on weekdays). Sure you can get a lot of things done after coming home from work, but then you might feel yourself a bit tired at the end of the day or the day after. But it's all about your attitude and how do you use your daily minutes and hours. Remember that time is valuable and precious, do not throw it away.  

For those of you who already know me, you know that I'm at my best when I'm eating. And oh yes I love eating! And if I ever start to seem a bit anxious or grumpy just give me something to eat, please. It will make me feel a lot better. And I bet that you don't want to see me while I'm having my-snickers-moment-of-the-day. Neither do I if I was you.

And what comes to delicacies, the photo above will show you my weakness. If I could I would live the rest of my life eating nothing else but yummy ice-creams. 

Though it's summer it's not an excuse to be lazy, eat and do nothing. Think about all the stuff you put in to your mouth and how much you do sports or get your ass up from the couch anyway? You can be a loafer every once in a while but not all the time. Go out for a walk. Meet up with your friends and hang around with them. If you live by the sea (or some river or lake) run to the water. Feel those refreshing waterdrops against your skin.

Summer is nothing without rain and here in Finland we tend to have it quite often. And these days when it rains it usually rains a lot. That's why you must have rubber boots in your closet. The more colorful or patterned they are the better! These so to call "wellies" are also pretty useful when you go to festivals where suprisingly and by chance rains too. I've been in Provinssirock twice and on both times it has been raining. Although, in this year it rained a lot more than last time. And I bet you don't want to ruin your Chucks or any other beloved shoes you have, so go and get yourself a wellies! 

Enjoy all the little things in life. If it's necessary, take some time for yourself. Take a journey to the inner you and find the real you. It might take time so don't hustle. Found the beat thats moves you, the one that gives you strength and will to go further.  

Wave your hands in the air
like you don't care.
Glide by the people as they
start to look and stare.
- Song by Korn
