CAMBRIDGE FOR A DAY. It’s been a good week. On Monday I graduated from university with a MA Music Industry Management with distinction. I was so happy that my parents were in town to celebrate this achievement with me. I’m going to tell you all about the graduation ceremony, my outfit and how we spent the day in a different post. So bear with me!
Yesterday Panu and I travelled to beautiful Cambridge, where he was invited as a guest speaker (proud me). Sadly, leaving London for a day is a rare occasion. Apart from the odd trip to Oxford to visit friends, leaving London seems like a bit of a hassle and like a huge undertaking. But I guess that’s typical for people living in the bubble that is London – it’s just too convenient, too comfy and let’s be honest: why would you need to? I wish we would have more time and enthusiasm to travel around Britain, because once you really do manage to get out, it’s usually fantastic.
WELTMEISTER. Wow, what a weekend! Epic indeed. First of all, greetings from Helsinki! I’m so happy to spend some time here in Finland. I arrived last Saturday and kicked off the World Cup finale weekend at a housewarming party with dear friends. Sunday was naturally all about the Germany vs. Argentina match. And what a game it was! I could barely watch the regular 90 minutes and thought I couldn’t get any more nervous, but clearly I was wrong. It wasn’t until the 113th minute and the liberating goal by Mario Götze that I could breathe again. Already then I knew it’s really gonna happen: Germany is Weltmeister! Needless to say that I kinda wished to join the thousands of fans in Berlin for the celebration.
NEW BEGINNINGS. Wow, it’s been two months since my last post! Time really flies when you are busy and a lot of things – positive and negative – happen all at once. Finishing my master’s dissertation was the biggest challenge, especially because I’m the worst procrastinator you will ever see. But now it’s done, results are due this week and the graduation ceremony is scheduled for the end of July. I can’t wait to hold that degree in my hands!
