happy news and random rambling
Eek, guess what..! Next autumn I`ll start studying graphic designing, in other words I got accepted into the school where I wanted the most! The results were told to us immediately after the entrance examination, but because the information wasn`t completely "official" back then, I decided to tell the good news when I actually get the letter that confirms my student place (the letter arrived yesterday!). :-)
The entrance examination was 4 days long and quite stressing...! I was hopeful that maybe I had a tiny tiny chance to get accepted and I tried my best, but no mater what I wasn`t completely satisfied with a couple of things that I created there, eeerh... :--D Well, I am sometimes very critical towards my own art so I probably overreacted and at least the teachers seemed to like my creations! I feel amazed also about the fact that I apparently got the best possible pointsfrom the entrance examination, full 100 points. Somehow I feel almost shy about it and I just can`t believe the whole thing... It is like someone would try to fool me, haha! But naturally I am very very happy about this, aaaa... :---)
First picnic during this summer! I don´t understand how Riikka managed to take this elegant picture of me while eating, very rare! :' )
I was a bit busy during June because of my summer job, but on last friday my "real" summer vacation started! The first week at work felt very long and I was stressed, because I was sure that I would just fail at everything.... : D Luckily the following three weeks went very quickly and in the end I really enjoyed my summer job! During those four weeks I became really attached to my workmates and it was even sad to leave them! Luckily I can always pay them a visit them and it might be that I`ll be able to work there later too. :) I feel so lucky!
My current sketchbook is almost full, which is great because I have drawn far too little lately! I`ll try to scan more pages later, though they are only full of cute girls (like always..). : )
Erhm, I have also ordered lots of cosmetics and clothes (during this year I suddenly got much more interested into all kind of cosmetics, I have some friend`s who are a bit "cosmetic freaks" so maybe I got influenced by them)... Many cometics that I ordered are by asian brands because I loooove pretty packages! Especially candy doll has adorable packages, I have wanted to try their blush for ages! The make up base was nice too, it is very fair. First I was a bit disappointed because I thought that it has too little coverage but I ended up liking it anyway (I use two layers and powder on more reddish areas, like on my acne scars). : )
I have been dreaming about Melissa rubber boots for almost 2 years and I finally ordered lilac ones. But uuuh, at the moment I am very worried about my order, because the store is having some issues and I am afraid that soon they will tell me that they can`t ship my boots or something. :--( I want them so badly!
I also found this cute Heico rabbit lamp for a nice price (34 pounds, they have been selling the same lamb for 80 euros in urban outfitters...), I´ll take it with me, when I move to my own apartment in autumn. :--)
Okay, maybe there has been enough rambling about all kind of material for one post! Tomorrow I`ll leave to my family`s summer cottage, I hope that the weather will be nice!
