I don't know where this quote is from originally, but I think it's beautiful.

"I like drinking coffee alone and reading alone. I like riding the bus alone and walking home alone. It gives me time to think and set my mind free. I like eating alone and listening to music alone. but when I see a mother with her child, a girl with her lover, or a friend laughing with their best friend, I realise that even though I like being alone, I don’t fancy being lonely. The sky is beautiful, but the people are sad. I just need someone who won’t run away."

Few more days

I think I should start the year 2012 with ABC.

Have you ever thought that if you're unable to love yourself, how can you expect somebody else to?
I think that everyday...
My biggest new years resolution is to lose 10kg. And keep it off.
While we wait for 2012.. We might as well listen to 90's music (click the link). Think about this: it's been 22 years since 1990. 12 since 1999.
90's kid's. We <3 90's!! Happy New Years! 
This is even a better mix!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas. 




I hate it how people have the ability to make me feel ugly as fuck without even realizing it... I don't wanna hear that the girl my ex exchanged me to is hotter than me... I already know that.

Until my heart heals.

I'm broken.
Today is the day I will stop eating

Paper Towns

Just because I'm keeping a diet free month, does not mean I need to keep a silent blog month! 

Do you like books?
I love reading and I love listening to audio books (good in example if you wanna know the story while doing stuff like cleaning or crafting).
The latest book I'm listening to is called Paper Towns by John Green.
It's absolutely brilliant! I love the story, I love the geekieness of the main character and his relationship with Margo.

When Margo Roth Spiegelman beckons Quentin Jacobsen in the middle of the night—dressed like a ninja and plotting an ingenious campaign of revenge—he follows her. Margo’s always planned extravagantly, and, until now, she’s always planned solo. After a lifetime of loving Margo from afar, things are finally looking up for Q . . . until day breaks and she has vanished. Always an enigma, Margo has now become a mystery. But there are clues. And they’re for Q.
 
I haven't read the most known work of John Green Looking for Alaska, but I hear it's incredibly good as well.
The latest books I've read were few years ago and they were... bada ba baaam... Twilight saga. I did love the story Stephanie Meyer wrote about this sparkling hot vampire, but in my honest opinion - they totally ruined that story with the movies. Because it was such a low budget movie when they first started filming they casted the most annoying, talentless and stupid actress called Kirsten Stewart and I do from the bottom of my heart hate her acting. She looks like she is constantly having a seizure while biting her lips and doesn't seem to know what the hell she should do with her face. 
Anyways. So much about Twilight.

I really did find Paper Towns surprisingly good. And I think a book is good when you can't seem to find ENOUGH time to read or listen to it. I have been all over it. I have it on my iPhone and I listen to it while one my way to school (2hrs btw) and back home, and while cleaning my apartment, while knitting.. Basically while doing anything that doesn't require me to think too much of what I'm doing.

Here are couple of my favorite quotes from the book so far. (I'm only on the beginning of disc 4 out of 7)

It's always seemed so ridiculous to me, that you would want to be with someone just because they're pretty. Like choosing breakfast cereal based on color instead of taste
*** 
Dude, I don't want to talk about Lacey's prom shoes. And I'll tell you why: I have this thing that makes me really uninterested in prom shoes. It's called a penis.
*** 
I shaved this morning for precisely that reason. I was like, ‘Well, you never know when someone is going to clamp down on your calf and try to suck out the snake poison.
***
I really do highly recommend this book!

GREAT DECEMBER!


I know I've been gone since my Sunday Binge update...
Well.. One thing I forgot to mention is:
I do keep an obsession free month each year and that is December.
My goal each December is:
1. Do not purge (or binge)
2. Try not to diet, yet still don't go crazy with Christmas sweets.
3. Don't forget to exercise.
4. Keep your apartment clean.
And last but not least:
5. TRY TO GET INTO THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT!

Each year that last one gets lost throughout the entire December up until Dec 22nd. So this year I am getting there extra early !! My mom helped me clean up my entire apartment and I have  bought some X-mas decorations that I will be putting up tomorrow amongst with the TREE!
Yay.
Christmas is the only time of the year that seeing fat people make me all jolly. That's because I secretly wish that I'd see Santa Claus - since all Finns know that Santa lives in Finland :)
Last year I saw him in a grocery store, he was chubby, white beard, white hair, red shirt. It was him. I know it. And children know it too!! My 4 year old daughter pointed him out for me and yelled "mommy, look! It's Santa!" :D even tho Santa laughed, I know it was just because he knew that she knew.. I'm on to you mr. Claus.
