one, 2 and 3

Iga aasta tundub see sĂĽnnipäev aina kiiremini kätte tulevat. See aasta oli korraldusliku poole pealt tĂĽkk tegu, et lõpuks kuupäevgi paika saada, seega kui 10.juuni õhtupoolikul kĂĽlalised saabuma hakkasid, oli kuidagi kergendatud tunne. Mulle ikka meeldib neid teemapidusid teha ja sel aastal oli teemaks sportlased. KostĂĽĂĽmide osas oli jälle ikka väga naljakaid leide, mis on väga vinge. Terve päeva veetsime ettevalmistusi tehes, tegin fotoseina, söögid-värgid, et õhtu vinge tuleks. Vaikselt hakkas rahvast tiksuma ning lõpuks kui enamus kohal juba olid ning kõhud esialgu täis söödud, siis otsustasin viktoriini teha. KĂĽsimused olid minuga seoses, spordikĂĽsimused ja niisama mõned vaheldumisi – omaarust tegin ĂĽpris lihtsa seekord, aga tundus, et pani siiski pead murdma. Sportlastele kombekohaselt tuli ka mõni võistlus korraldada, ehk siis tehtud sai teatejooks, mis läks päris lõbusalt. Ăśldiselt oli selline mõnus olemine, sai palju juttu aetud inimestega, kellega ammu pole näinud ning lihtsalt nauditud olemist. Mingi hetk hakkas rahvas laiali valguma ning otsustasime linna edasi liikuda. Aed ja Aptek olid niivõrd kuivõrd rahvast täis, aga pidu polnud nii hea kui oleks võinud olla ning seepärast olimegi suht kiiresti juba kodus tagasi. Eri asjade kokkusattumisel juhtus see, et kell 3 kĂĽkitasime kolmekesi meie välisukse taga ning sõime otse kausist riisisalatit… sest me ei saanud tuppa sisse.

Järgmisel päeval tegime naistega Müüriääres brunchi ning kuna enamus liikusid Tallinna, otsustasin spontaanselt kaasa minna.. Samas tegelikult teadsin oma peas, et vaja oleks veel mõned esseed kirjutada, enne kui semestrile kriipsu peale tõmmata saab, aga ei tahtnud sünnipäevajärgset päeva nina arvutis ära raisata kah. Kokkuvõttes jäin sünnipäevaga väga rahule, kuigi väga mitmed mulle tähtsad inimesed kahjuks olid puudu. Uuel aastal uue hooga 🙂

English: Every year it seems that the birthday is arriving quicker and quicker. This year it was kind of a struggle on the organizational part, because the date was still open until just before the party and so on. That is why I kind of felt relieved on the evening of the 10th of June when the guests finally started arriving. I like doing theme parties and this year was no exception: the theme was SPORT. There were some great finds amongst the costumes again, which was really fun. We spent the whole day doing preparations, making the photo wall, the food etc for the evening. Finally people started arriving and then, when most had arrived and had had their first bite of the food as well, I decided to have the quiz. The questions were about me: some were about sports and some just general knowledge tests – I thought I made it quite easy, but apparently not. As it was suitable for sportsmen, there had to be some competitions, so I had a relay, so people got to run around a bit and drink even more. Overall it was just this nice time, got to chat with some people who I have not seen in a long time and just enjoy the time with my friends. At some point people started leaving and we decided also to go to town. Aed and Aptek were full with people, but the party was not as good as it could have been, so we soon came back home and thanks to some unfortunate things, we ended up squatting in front of my front door, eating rice salad at 3 am… because we could not get inside the house. 

The next day we had a brunch with the girls in Müüriääre cafe and since most people went to Tallinn, I spontaneously decided to go as well.. Although in my head I knew that I still need to write a couple of essays, before I could say bye to this semester, but I did not want to waste the post-birthday day sitting in front of my computer the whole day. As a conclusion, I really liked my birthday, although some people important to me could sadly not come.. New year, new opportunities 🙂

may | a very brief summary

Semestri lõpp pressib peale ja kogu mai kuu on ĂĽleĂĽldse ĂĽks suur blur olnud, mistõttu pole väga aega ega tahtmist olnud siia midagi kirja ka panna. Mai algust ausalt öeldes väga ei mäletagi, sest peakohal oli magistritöö kavandi esitamise tume pilv ja silme ees vaid see, et ĂĽks hetk saab veidike puhkust. See puhkus oligi Reili ja Säraga nädalavahetus Vilniuses, sest nende viimane tripp sinna oli novembris, kui veel kĂĽlm ja pime oli, seega tegime plaani minna koos uuesti, aga siis, kui soe on. Tõesti –  oli soe. Too nädalavahetus oli ka esimene, kus Eestiski suvesooja oli tunda ja lõuna pool on ju alati soojem. Kogu nädalavahetus oli väga vinge, leedukatest veetis meiega kõige enam aega Gytis ning teisel päeval vaatamata kõigele jõudsime lõpuks ka Kaunasesse, kus just olid toimumas Hansapäevad ning käisime vaatasime ĂĽle kuidas Matas tööd tegi. Terve nädalavahetus oli ĂĽks suur hea ilma nautimine: jalutasime Kaunases ringi, käisime Vingise pargis, nagu ikka siis ka Kolme Risti mäel ning nautisime mitu päeva head toitu lageda taeva all. Viimasel päeval naistega asju kokku võttes ja niisama juttu ajades oli selline tunne, et pole ammu nii sĂĽdamest naerda suutnud.  Kvaliteetaeg. KĂĽll on tore, et polegi palju aega jäänud enne kui saangi juba jälle tagasi. Tegime ka Erroriga kolmanda videofilmimise ära, mis oli ka väga fun. Ja siis ma suutsin endale kuskilt silmapõletiku ĂĽles korjata, niiet mõned päevad nägin nagu korralik Terminaator välja, see oli ka põnev.

Ja esimene aasta magistriõppest ongi läbi – sĂĽrr. Samas, kuna hetkel on plaan kõigele vaatamata järgmisel kevadel siiski ära lõpetada, on pingutada vaja rohkem ja veelgi. Absoluutselt ajataju enam ei ole ning seetõttu ei saagi väga aru, et juba ongi suvi käes.. selle suve või noh.. nii palju kui ma sellest siin olen, veedan Haapsalus ning juba kohe varsti ongi käes jälle minu sĂĽnnipäev, millest kirjutan kindlasti ĂĽhe pikema postituse 🙂

English: The end of an another semester is pushing on and the whole month of May has kinda been a huge blur, which is why I haven’t really had the time or urge to write anything here. Honestly, I can’t even remember anything from the beginning of the month besides the fact that I spent it under the dark cloud of my master’s thesis proposal. Basically I made it through that only due to the fact that I had this vision of the vacation in my head and that vacation came in the form of a quick weekend trip to Lithuania together with Reili and Sära. Since they were last there in November when it was still dark and cold, it was about time to go and enjoy some good weather as well. And the weather was good – it was actually the same weekend when Estonia also had the chance to enjoy some sun. The whole weekend was great, as usual – Gytis was the one of from the Lithuanians who spent the most time with us and it was awesome. On the second day, against all odds, we made it to Kaunas as well, where we visited the Hanseatic Days and saw Matas working hard. The whole weekend was one big enjoyment of good weather: we walked around Kaunas, visited the Vingis Park and the Three Cross Hill again and had some nice outdoor meals throughout the weekend. On the last day, talking with the girls and discussing the weekend, I felt like I hadn’t had such a great laugh in a while. Quality time. Atleast I don’t have to wait that long before I can go back. We also had a third video shoot with Error, which was also fun. Besides that I somehow managed to get an eye inflammation, which is the reason why for some days I looked like legit Terminator… that was also interesting. 

And my first year of master’s studies is already over – surreal. Then again, since I still have the plan to graduate next spring, I have to work hard and harder. I don’t sense time at all anymore, which is why I don’t really acknowledge that summer is here already and due to some things, I am spending the summer, or well the time in Estonia, in Haapsalu. Also, it is once again my birthday soon and of that I’ll definitely do a longer post. 🙂
