Voi voi, time is really doing its thing, running quickly without a notice, eh? I can’t believe it has been 6 months already. One thing I know is soon I will have to go back to Indonesia and leave this all behind. It’s not that I don’t miss my country and everything there, I do, a lot.
Honestly it has not been always rainbows and butterflies, especially about the differences. Sometimes I like them, sometimes I don’t. Sometimes I was culture shocked; but sometimes I was too comfortable with these new ways of living. All of these changes – both in better and worse ways, they all happened unconsciously. I changed without even realizing it myself. In spite of all that, I found beauty and I fell in love. I fell in love with this amazing country and every single unique thing in it. It was weird and strange once, but not anymore. Minä rakastan Suomea.
Anyways, a lot of things have happened since I wrote my last newsletter in November. It’s been winter for almost 3 months now; my sight has been all white and snow, everyyyyday. The ‘warmest’ temperature was 2 degrees Celsius during this period of time, and the coldest I’ve experienced was -26 degrees. You know what? It’s super cool seeing your hair or even your eyelashes became frozen when you go outside for a minute. But yeah, at this point, I really reaaaally miss the sun. We only have sun approximately only for 4-5 hours a day, could you imagine?
