Amazing, I wish I could have at least one single day snowing :-</E>


#3

no snow. Ever.

12 days of military behind me. I got my first weekend off now, next weekend should be a free one too. First six days were pretty easy, the next three days I felt like shit all the time and the three following days I felt alright with the occasional bummer like discovering that I suck at shooting.

I “broke down” after 24 days. Came back home, started civil cervice at the local hopital, applied to Vaasa polytechics (Internatinal Business) and got in. If I had stayed in the army I would’ve applied to university only and I’m sure I wouldn’t have gotten in (and I wasn’t very interested in it either). I only found out about the “International Business” program later, and that wouldn’t have happened if I had stayed in the army. Now I can study (starting next fall) what really interests me (with asian marketing as the main subject) and I should be able to spent one year in Japan as an exchange student. Finally I’ll get to study with real japanese school girls :smiley: First I have to spend a year or two here in Finland with Chinese girls (that doesn’t sound too bad either ;D).



Also, a few months ago I took some time off from the civil cervice and went to japan… I don’t think I could’ve done that in the army (it was starting look like I was “12 month man”, although it wasn’t official yet)… So, you could say things really worked out for me in the end.



But hey, I wish you all the best with the army. Don’t give up. Army wasn’t my thing but I have lots of respect for everyone who goes through that hell. I hope the winter remains warm. Last year when I was having my fun at the shooting range, it was -33 celsius. And, being the fucking genious I am, I fired the first three shots with bare hands. We never wore gloves during the “dry training” so… :-[

Good that things worked out for you, good luck with the japanese girls, man ;D



I’m soooooo hoping they won’t keep there for more than 6 months. Luckily I’m a real fuck up a lot of the things (which doesn’t really even bother me, I just do them cause they’re obligatory), but surely they’ll find something to waste a whole year of my life. The skiing will be a pain in the ass, cause I hate it with it a passion + you sometimes have to ski with a full supply bag on your back and a rifle on your shoulder. Not to mention I’m not in a very good shape these days…

Skiing back to the base from the shooting range was the last drop for me. It was really dark, you couldn’t see anything, fucking cold, the bags were killing my shoulders, the rifle kept hitting my stomach (couldn’t figure out how to ski with it) and then they take us downhill this huge hill. We had to dodge trees and stones and every third guy fell. I fell when saw bunch guys lying on their asses right in front of me. And of course it was a normal forest with no skiing track of any kind. And about 120 cm of snow ;D I thought I wouldn’t make it back alive…



Where are you btw.? Don’t tell me Kajaani…

Just reading that makes my skin crawl. I’m in Sodankylä. Most of the guys in our room are dumb but harmless. There’s one cool half Finnish guy from Canada who likes chess and one drummer who likes some of the same bands that I do, so we could get something going in the playing room.

damn… this morning with -10 and snow made me wish we had summer. i’m ashamed of myself :-[


#12

:stuck_out_tongue: You start to be uncomfortable with cold and snow, which is pretty natural in fact since it’s getting warmer and warmer, and since you haven’t a lot of snow for now. We had snow yesterday, today roofs were still white, grass too, but not the road. Too bad, I was writing an essay for 5 hours, when it was snowing, I couldn’t be really focused on that… :-</E>

I can understand that, it’s between 0 and -6 here, and it’s a torture too, so I don’t wanna imagine when it’s -10 :-</E>
