I wish I had more time to take photographs. I wish I had more time to cook. I wish I had more time to do the things I love. You guys ever feel like you don’t do anything fun anymore? I’ve been feeling like that for a while now. I mean I’ve been studying like crazy, thinking I just have to do this now so I can have fun later. It motivated me first, but not anymore. I mean what if I have a huge tumor stuck to my brain right now and I end up dying thinking I’ll have fun later. Unlikely as it may be it’s a possibility.
I guess the big take away from all this melancholy is that you really should not put off being happy. Sure, there are tedious things one has to keep doing, but you have to make sure you’re embracing life while you do them. The sun will set every night, but tonight may be the last time you’ll see it happen.
Here are some pictures of a sunset I saw

Yesterday we celebrated Juhannus with my family in our summer cottage. I have always enjoyed this tradition and the smaller traditions within the day. Here are a few shots taken that day.
One of the Juhannus day traditions, my collection of seven flowers to be put under the pillow: Campanula patula, Archillea millefolium, Vicia cracca, Trifolium pratense, Leucanthemum vulgare, Ranunculus acris and Matricaria perforata. Still no dream man in my dream :c Maybe next year.
A three teared midsummer’s strawberry cake : P Yummy.

A beautiful way to end the day: a midsummer sunset around 0.30 AM

The university has started again, which is one of the reason why I haven’t been updating recently. Yesterday nigh however, I took a little walk with my camera and managed to get a few nice shots C: The sky was overwhelmingly gorgeous! I never seem to get bored of sunsets :D Hope you enjoy the pictures! ^^

Here are even more photos of my evening walk last saturday night. When you look at the light hitting the beach sand you wouldn’t easily believe that the temperature was in fact very wintery. Of course if you actually look at the picture you’ll notice there’s some ice in it too. But you get my point. I’m still amazed about the light. Today was such a lovely day too, unfortunately I didn’t have time to go take some photographs because I had to study microbiology… :/ Not really my piece of cake, but I’ll get through, hopefully.
Enjoy the photos! ^^

More pictures from my evening walk a few days back. Please enjoy!
I have said it before and I will say it again; I just LOVE ice. The evening glow hit these ornate-looking ice formations so beautifully! It inspired me to take these abstract photographs C: They kind of have a fairytale feel to them IMO.

I was at a singing camp with the choir a few weekends ago. It involved a lot of singing but we also had some free time in the evening. As the camp was held near the nature in a biological research center belonging to our university I of course brought my camera along and used the spare time to take some photos. I’m going to divide the photos into two posts to keep the length reasonable.
