The Summer Has Passed

To the greatest of surprises September has begun! For the past three months I have been working on a grave yard, so that's basically how I have spent this summer. I cannot complain because I was able to enjoy the outdoors on daily basis and even though the job was not something that I enjoy, at least I had a job. Anyhow, I believe this to be a suitable time for checking how I reached the points on my Summer Bucket List 2016.

Let's start with traveling, as was mentioned in an earlier post, I traveled to Vilnius, Lithuania at the change of April and May. My more recent journey was to Pärnu, Estonia from August 6th to 9th. Pärnu is a lovely town situated in the southwestern Estonia and on the coast of the Baltic Sea. The trip provided a nice getaway from the grave yard job and on top of that I got to spend quality time with my mom.

What comes to my dearest hobby - correspondence, I haven't reached the goal of being a better snail mailer this summer. Rather, I feel like I have been necklegting letters a bit because even though I have had the thought of writing letters in the back of my mind, I still haven't managed to actually write anything on papers. Anyway, I am happy to say that I'm back in the business. Here's the current list of letters waiting to be replied: 
- Emilia, Finland
- Dora, Hungary
- Ida, Norway
- Silvina, Argentina
- Almante, Lithuania
- Ilona, Latvia
- Sacha, Belgium
- Inga-Siv, Sweden
- Amit, Israel 

Neither did my wish of spending more time on our summer cottage come to reality, which saddens me deeply. To me summer cottage is a place, where I can truly relax, be myself and feel happy, hence spending time there is important to me. I'm keeping up the hope of speading autumn days at the cottage instead of summer evenings. 

I have been relatively happy with the amount of time and the quality of the time that I have spent together with my family and friends. It is something truly important because it's a way for creating longlasting memories. Spenging time with my boyfriend has also meant the world to me. Through all of my social contacts, I have managed to taste delicious food & drinks, stand in the rain (rather use bicycle, but it's not that precise), pick up mushrooms, swim in a lake & sea, take pictures and relax. 

Testing out Flowpark has been on my wish list for a long time, so thank you Matti for going there with me. I enjoyed the experience a lot - the activity is something so suitable for myself. I wish to keep on testing out similar parks in the future, too!

To sum up, my summer has been lovely and memorable. Even though I haven't reached all of the goals I set for myself, I still managed to relax and be happy for most of the summer. Besides, there's absolutely nothing wrong in the autumn. My plan is to look for a job and finish my thesis with results that I can be proud of. Furthermore, autumn is beautiful with all the colourful leaves and it means Christmas is approaching slowly but steadily. 

I hope you have all had amazing summer or winter, depending on where you are! :)
