Viimastel nĂ€dalatel on olnud igasuguseid toredaid ja mĂ”ndasid mittetoredaid asju. Toredamad olid nĂ€iteks need mĂ”ned hetked mis Eestis olles (jah sattusin korra sinna ka paar nĂ€dalat tagasi) sĂ”pradega ja perega said veedetud, siis need hetked mis sĂ”pradega siin saanud veeta, nagu nĂ€iteks see, et Reili Vilniusesse tuli jĂ€lle ja siis sai terve nĂ€dalavahetuse kvaliteetaega veedetud ja Matase ja Gytisega (minu jaoks esimest korda) Vichy veepargis kĂ€idud. Ja nĂ€iteks see spontaanne pĂ€ev Riias Annega, kui olime rampvĂ€sinud, aga tore oli ikka. VĂ”i siis see kui mĂ”ni aeg tagasi Romkat ĂŒle pika aja nĂ€gin ja jĂ€lle, minu jaoks esimest korda, Gediminase lossi juures ĂŒleval kĂ€isin. Ja aina paremaks ta lĂ€heb. Lasen piltidel kĂ”neleda.

English: Last few weeks have been filled with great and some not-so-great things. As of the great things one could maybe mention those moments spent with friends and family in Estonia (yes, I went there for a weekend as well) and those moments spent with friends here, like the fact that Reili came to Vilnius again and the whole weekend was filled with quality time and we visited the Vichy water park with Matas and Gytis (for me, for the first time). Also the day that we spontaneously spent in Riga with Anne and although we were so tired, we still enjoyed it. Or the day when I saw Romka over a long time and went up to (for me, again, for the first time) the Gediminas castle. And it keeps getting better. I will let the pictures talk.

where have i been

Lihtne vastus: Kaunases. Veetsin seal kuu aega leedu keelt ja kultuuri Ă”ppides ning sain tuttavaks vĂ€ga paljude vingete inimestega eri maailma otsadest. RÀÀkida oleks palju, aga lasen piltidel oma töö teha. AitĂ€h Aya, Galiya, Petra, Nika, Jonas, Tamta ja Zhuoxi 🙂

English: Simple answer: in Kaunas. I spent a month there studying Lithuanian language and culture and also met some awesome people from all over the world. There would be much to say, but I will let the pictures do their thing. Thank you Aya, Galiya, Petra, Nika, Jonas, Tamta and Zhuoxi 🙂

 

 

 

 

one, 2 and 3

Iga aasta tundub see sĂŒnnipĂ€ev aina kiiremini kĂ€tte tulevat. See aasta oli korraldusliku poole pealt tĂŒkk tegu, et lĂ”puks kuupĂ€evgi paika saada, seega kui 10.juuni Ă”htupoolikul kĂŒlalised saabuma hakkasid, oli kuidagi kergendatud tunne. Mulle ikka meeldib neid teemapidusid teha ja sel aastal oli teemaks sportlased. KostĂŒĂŒmide osas oli jĂ€lle ikka vĂ€ga naljakaid leide, mis on vĂ€ga vinge. Terve pĂ€eva veetsime ettevalmistusi tehes, tegin fotoseina, söögid-vĂ€rgid, et Ă”htu vinge tuleks. Vaikselt hakkas rahvast tiksuma ning lĂ”puks kui enamus kohal juba olid ning kĂ”hud esialgu tĂ€is söödud, siis otsustasin viktoriini teha. KĂŒsimused olid minuga seoses, spordikĂŒsimused ja niisama mĂ”ned vaheldumisi – omaarust tegin ĂŒpris lihtsa seekord, aga tundus, et pani siiski pead murdma. Sportlastele kombekohaselt tuli ka mĂ”ni vĂ”istlus korraldada, ehk siis tehtud sai teatejooks, mis lĂ€ks pĂ€ris lĂ”busalt. Üldiselt oli selline mĂ”nus olemine, sai palju juttu aetud inimestega, kellega ammu pole nĂ€inud ning lihtsalt nauditud olemist. Mingi hetk hakkas rahvas laiali valguma ning otsustasime linna edasi liikuda. Aed ja Aptek olid niivĂ”rd kuivĂ”rd rahvast tĂ€is, aga pidu polnud nii hea kui oleks vĂ”inud olla ning seepĂ€rast olimegi suht kiiresti juba kodus tagasi. Eri asjade kokkusattumisel juhtus see, et kell 3 kĂŒkitasime kolmekesi meie vĂ€lisukse taga ning sĂ”ime otse kausist riisisalatit… sest me ei saanud tuppa sisse.

JĂ€rgmisel pĂ€eval tegime naistega MĂŒĂŒriÀÀres brunchi ning kuna enamus liikusid Tallinna, otsustasin spontaanselt kaasa minna.. Samas tegelikult teadsin oma peas, et vaja oleks veel mĂ”ned esseed kirjutada, enne kui semestrile kriipsu peale tĂ”mmata saab, aga ei tahtnud sĂŒnnipĂ€evajĂ€rgset pĂ€eva nina arvutis Ă€ra raisata kah. KokkuvĂ”ttes jĂ€in sĂŒnnipĂ€evaga vĂ€ga rahule, kuigi vĂ€ga mitmed mulle tĂ€htsad 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 MĂŒĂŒriÀÀre 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 lĂ”pp pressib peale ja kogu mai kuu on ĂŒleĂŒldse ĂŒks suur blur olnud, mistĂ”ttu pole vĂ€ga aega ega tahtmist olnud siia midagi kirja ka panna. Mai algust ausalt öeldes vĂ€ga ei mĂ€letagi, sest peakohal oli magistritöö kavandi esitamise tume pilv ja silme ees vaid see, et ĂŒks hetk saab veidike puhkust. See puhkus oligi Reili ja SĂ€raga nĂ€dalavahetus Vilniuses, sest nende viimane tripp sinna oli novembris, kui veel kĂŒlm ja pime oli, seega tegime plaani minna koos uuesti, aga siis, kui soe on. TĂ”esti –  oli soe. Too nĂ€dalavahetus oli ka esimene, kus Eestiski suvesooja oli tunda ja lĂ”una pool on ju alati soojem. Kogu nĂ€dalavahetus oli vĂ€ga vinge, leedukatest veetis meiega kĂ”ige enam aega Gytis ning teisel pĂ€eval vaatamata kĂ”igele jĂ”udsime lĂ”puks ka Kaunasesse, kus just olid toimumas HansapĂ€evad ning kĂ€isime vaatasime ĂŒle kuidas Matas tööd tegi. Terve nĂ€dalavahetus oli ĂŒks suur hea ilma nautimine: jalutasime Kaunases ringi, kĂ€isime Vingise pargis, nagu ikka siis ka Kolme Risti mĂ€el ning nautisime mitu pĂ€eva head toitu lageda taeva all. Viimasel pĂ€eval naistega asju kokku vĂ”ttes ja niisama juttu ajades oli selline tunne, et pole ammu nii sĂŒdamest naerda suutnud.  Kvaliteetaeg. KĂŒll on tore, et polegi palju aega jÀÀnud enne kui saangi juba jĂ€lle tagasi. Tegime ka Erroriga kolmanda videofilmimise Ă€ra, mis oli ka vĂ€ga fun. Ja siis ma suutsin endale kuskilt silmapĂ”letiku ĂŒles korjata, niiet mĂ”ned pĂ€evad nĂ€gin nagu korralik Terminaator vĂ€lja, see oli ka pĂ”nev.

Ja esimene aasta magistriĂ”ppest ongi lĂ€bi – sĂŒrr. Samas, kuna hetkel on plaan kĂ”igele vaatamata jĂ€rgmisel kevadel siiski Ă€ra lĂ”petada, on pingutada vaja rohkem ja veelgi. Absoluutselt ajataju enam ei ole ning seetĂ”ttu ei saagi vĂ€ga aru, et juba ongi suvi kĂ€es.. selle suve vĂ”i noh.. nii palju kui ma sellest siin olen, veedan Haapsalus ning juba kohe varsti ongi kĂ€es jĂ€lle minu sĂŒnnipĂ€ev, millest kirjutan kindlasti ĂŒhe 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 SĂ€ra. 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. 🙂

’tis the season to be jolly | update

Oi kui pikk vahe on sisse jÀÀnud ja pĂ”hjusega ka – pole lihtsalt mitte millestki kirjutada. NĂŒĂŒd mĂ”tlesin, et vĂ”iks vĂ€ikese vahekokkuvĂ”tte siiski teha, sest paar asja ikkagi on toimunud ka vahepeal. NĂ€iteks toimusÂ ĂŒhel kolmapĂ€eval spontaanne vĂ€lja minek: kell oli juba 23 lĂ€bi, mina pitĆĄaamas ja valmis varsti magama minema, kui Madli tuleb ja pakub, et lĂ€heme vĂ€lja – mis siis ikka, mĂ”eldud-tehtud. Ühel pĂ€eval toimus Taukari kontsert ka, kuhu ma peaaegu (!) jĂ”udsin, ehk siis kodust vĂ€lja sain, aga Taukarit lĂ”puks ikka ei nĂ€inud.. mis siis ikka.

Semester sai ka vahepeal lÀbi, mis tÀhendab, et nagu eelmises postituses mainisin, aeg esseesid ja magistritööd kirjutada. No, see on ka lÀinud nii nagu ta on, midagi ikka tehtud on saadud. JÔulud tulid kuidagi nii kiiresti peale ja saigi eelmine nv jÔulupidudele algus tehtud, kui Erroriga KuutsemÀele lÀksime. Minust ei suusatajat ega lumelaudurit vÀga ei olnud, seega minu jaoks oligi kogu Ôhtu suur söömine ja juttu rÀÀkimine. Sauna sai ka!

Ja ongi see jĂ”ulunĂ€dal kĂ€es. Tulemas on nagu ikka, korralik söögipidu ja jĂ€rgmisel nĂ€dalal juba aastavahetus… what. Kuhu see 2016 lĂ€ks?

English: Oi, a long time since the previous post, isn’t it? Well, there is a reason for it – nothing to write about. Still, I decided to make a little update, because a couple of things have went down nevertheless. For example, on Wednesday there was a spontaneous decision to go out: I was already in my pajamas, ready to go to sleep when Madli asked if I’d be up for going out and well, let’s do it. Also, there was a concert by Estonian singer Karl-Erik Taukar one day and I almost (!) made it. I made it out of our apartment, but didn’t make it to the concert.. Well there’s that. Also, the semester finally finished and like mentioned in the previous post, I have to do my master’s thesis and essays.. well some of it I’ve already done, but still a long way to go. Also, last weekend we had our Christmas party with my dance practice mates from Error Dance School at KuutsemĂ€e. I wasn’t up for any skiing and snowboarding, which is why I spent most of the evening talking to the people and eating.. and there was also a sauna! 

And now it’s the Christmas week and next week it’s NYE. What. Where did 2016 go?

lost and found

Olen lĂŒkanud seda uue postituse tegemist aina edasi, lootes jÀÀda pidama vanale postitusele. Aga ei, elu lĂ€heb edasi ja rutiin lĂ€heb edasi. Uskumatu, et nĂŒĂŒdseks Rumeeniast tagasitulekust möödas kuu aega ja kui palju selle kuu aja sisse ikka mahtunud on. SellepĂ€rast ongi minul endal tunne, nagu oleks pigem kaks kuud, aga kalender nĂ€itab muud. NĂ€dalad on möödunud kiirelt, aga nagu ikka: kool, töö, trenn, kool, töö, trenn ja nĂŒĂŒd olnud nĂ€dalavahetus ka Haapsalu jĂ€llegi. Eelmisel nĂ€dalal tuli kuskilt spontaanne mĂ”te kolmapĂ€eval naistega vĂ€lja minna. Mina ise pole kolmapĂ€eval Tartus vĂ€lja sattunud oi kes teab mis ajast saati, seega mĂ”tlesin, et teeme Ă€ra. Kokku tuli meid lĂ”puks ĂŒsna kirju seltskond, mĂ€ngisime Reaalsuskontroll 2 ning ĂŒks hetk liikusime linna, kuhu jĂ”udsime Shootersisse, seal oli pĂ€ris hea muusika ja sai mĂ”nusalt tantsida, aga ĂŒks hetk lĂ€ks seltskond laiali ja vĂ€ss tuli ka peale. Ega pole enam seda jaksu siin midagi nii palju. NĂ€dalavahetusel toimus Haapsalus meil vĂ€ikest-viisi klassikokkutulek jĂ€lle, ehk siis umbes 15 inimest 36-st HWG16M ajas end Taksi kohale ning veetsime ĂŒhe mĂ”nusa Ă”htupooliku juttu rÀÀkides ja ĂŒksteise eludega kurssi viies. LaupĂ€eval oli Martini sĂŒnnipĂ€ev, mis oli ka tĂ€itsa tore, sai korralikult sĂŒĂŒa, beerpongi mĂ€ngida ning isegi tĂŒnnisaun oli kohal (seekord sisse ise ei jĂ”udnud). Tore oleks kui oleksin mĂ”tetega kĂ”ige selle juures 100%, kui reaalsuses on mĂ”tted omadega juba uues nĂ€dalas ja selles, kui palju asju vaja Ă€ra teha on.

English: I’ve postponed making this post for quite some time now, hoping to live on the shadow of the last one. Nope, life goes on, the routine goes on. It’s insane that it has been a month since we arrived back from Romania. So much has happened in those weeks so it feels rather 2 months, than only one. The routine is still the same: school, work, dance practice  and again.. and this past weekend I could add Haapsalu to that list as well. Still, before that last week, a plan to go out on Wednesday suddenly came into action. It was quite random, but we had fun regardless, played the card came Reality Check and after went to the city and danced in Shooters for a while. On Friday we had a gathering with our old high school mates in Taksi pub in Haapsalu. Out of the original 36, 15 made it. We had fun talking and sharing our personal lives and how is everyone doing etc. On Saturday it was Martin’s birthday, which was also great. There was some good food, we played beerpong and there was a quiz and so on. It would be great if all my thoughts would be 100% with the activities as well, but the reality is that they are already somewhere beyond me, in the future. 

 

’twas the halloween night

Otsustasime Madliga juba pĂ€ris ammu korrata siis meie nĂŒĂŒdseks iga-aastast Halloweeni pidu. Seekord oli siis esimene kord siin Riia tn korteris. LaupĂ€eval siis alustasimegi juba varakult ettevalmistusi ja rahvast vaikselt tilkus juba lĂ”una ajal. Aeg lĂ€ks niiiiniii kiiresti, et ĂŒks hetk oligi enamus rahvast kohal ja pooled asjad tegemata. Sai needki Ă€ra handlitud kuidagi ja samas toimus ka korralik grimmimine: jĂ€rjest tulid inimesed, kes tahtsid, et neile midagi nĂ€kku joonistataks. Vannituba nĂ€gi normaalne CSI: Riia hood vĂ€lja vahepeal, sest kĂ€igus oli kunstveri, mis siis igale poole pritsis. LĂ”puks olid kĂ”ik ilusaks (vĂ”i jubedaks) tehtud ja tegime viktoriini jne. KĂŒlaliste hulgas olid nĂ€iteks: gĂ€ngster kloun, terrorist, lammas, Ă€mbliktĂŒdruk, kass, Jokker igasugused jubedad verised aukus silmadega kutid, Snapchati liblikafilter jne. Ise joonistasin endale jÀÀtise mööda nĂ€gu alla sulama. Ega Ă”htu ilma jamadeta ei möödunud, aga ĂŒks hetk liikusime Shootersi poole, mĂ”ttega tĂ€iega pidu panna.. No sellest sai see, et jĂ€rjekord oli selline, et otsustasime RĂŒĂŒtlisse edasi liikuda, kust jĂ”udsime otsaga Atlantisesse. Seal oli tĂ€iesti mĂ”ttetu pidu ikka. Uuesti Shootersi poole, kuhu muidugi jĂ€lle sisse ei saanud ja liikusimegi koju. Mahutasime Mannuga lisaks endale ka seitse kutti korterisse magama. Hommik helge ja nagu traditsiooniks, tegime brunchi ja seekord Tavernas. Ja nii see oligi. Loodan, et jĂ€rgmine aasta ilmaga ikka veab ja arvestame ajaliselt ka veidi paremini.

English: Together with Madli we decided to once again celebrate Halloween by inviting our friends over for a party. Saturday was very hectic, there was much to do and people started to arrive already in the noon. People also wanted us to do their make-up, so we were running around doing everything etc. Our bathroom also looked similar to a crime scene due to some people playing around with fake blood. We had some yummy food prepared, a quiz and some games. Amongst guests were a gangster clown, spidergirl, a terrorist, a cat, a sheep, the Joker and different bloody guys. I myself drew some ice cream to melt down my face. At one point we thought we’d move to the city to see if there was a good party anywhere. Well, there wasn’t, because the good place was full and it was raining etc. So we walked around, went to one club and left quite quickly. We came back to our place, where 7 guys also stayed over for the night. In the morning we had our annual post-Halloween brunch in a pizza pkace called Taverna. And that was it – until next year!
