My hair journey

My hair journey starts from year 2014 when I dyed my hair for the first time.

Here's my hair before dying (November 2013).

Then I dyed it red with henna (January 2014).

I cut it much shorter + it's still red (February 2014).

Then I got half bald and dyed it again (April 2014).

I cut almost everything away (photo is from September 2014, but I got hair cut probably in the end of July 2014).

Then it grew... (December 2014)

And grew... (January 2015)

And grew... (March 2015)

Then I dyed my hair blue but for some reason I don't have any photo of that, so instead of it, take this photo where I am blue-haired, but because of that cool fire effect it doesn't really look like it (March 2015).

I dyed it purple (August 2015).

Then the colour started to get worse (somewhere between September and October 2015).

It got worse very quickly (31.10.2015).

Black and white again, but on that time my hair was basically almost white and in quite bad condition (May 2016)

Then I cut it short again and dyed with henna (June 2016).

It grew a lot (November 2016)

It grew little bit more (February 2017).

Curly hair for a larp (15.4.2017)

(21.4.2017)

And now my hair looks like this. Also, it's a bit greasy so these are not the best photos right now (21.4.2017).

Mina tankar är i Stockholm...

Jag är skakad. Och ledsen. Jag är också perplex. Jag kan inte tro om vad hände i Stockholm idag. Det är... Jag vet inte. Jag har inte några ord. Jag kan bara säga då mina tankar är i Stockholm och i Sverige just nu. De har varit där liksom helt kväll efter hörde jag nyheter cirka 4-5 pm (Finland).

Jag vill säga mer men jag vet inte vad jag kan säga. Om du är i Stockholm, hoppas jag att du är okej.

***

I'm shocked. And sad. I'm also confused. I can't believe what happened today in Stockholm. It's... I don't know. I have no words. All I can say is that my thoughts are in Stockholm and Sweden right now. They have been there for almost the whole evening after I heard the news approximately at 4-5 pm (Finland).

I want to say more but I don't know what to say. If you're in Stockholm, I hope you're okay.

Random thoughts from tired Wednesday

Why the fuck didn't I do the assignments earlier?
Fuck, we have to keep some random informative speech about some books.
I want to sleep.
55%, is it enough? Probably no, if I want to listen to music.
Coffeeeeeeeee.
I'm hungry.
It's too early to be awake.
Last day of the exam week!
Yas, 55% was enough.
Coffeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee...!
I want more coffee.
I want to bake something.
NOO, IT'S MY HAND! (My little brother often hangs on my hand saying "My hand, my Linda")
Oh, this idea looks nice, I probably should try this one someday.
What the fuck?
I'm bored.
Mmm, that looks so delicious!
Now I'm getting hungrier.
I want chocolate.
I want to sleep.
Can I just take a nap?
What the fuck I just saw... O.o
Coffeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Chocolate muffins

I love these muffins. They're easy to do, and if you don't like the taste of chocolate you can change the flavour. You can even do these just without cocoa or any other flavours. And the best thing? They can be made without any gluten! + you can make this also without milk and eggs!

Also, this recipe is actually in metric but I'll try to change them to pounds! You can correct me if I'm wrong.

Production time: about 35 minutes

Ingredients:

50 g / 0,11 lbs of butter (or if you want these without milk, just use margarine)
2 dl / 3/4 cups of sugar
2 eggs (not necessary)
3 dl / 1 1/4 cups of flour (gluten-free for me, you can use wheat or something if you can/want)
1 tsp baking powder
0,3-0,7 dl / 6-14 ts of milk (or water if you can't use milk)
1 tsp of vanilla sugar
Cocoa/other flavours as much as you want, or without
  1. Heat the oven to 220 C / 428 F.
  2. Whip butter and sugar to fair and fluffy. Add eggs and mix.
  3. Mix the baking powder with flour and add the mix to the butter-sugar-(egg)-mix. Add also milk/water.
  4. Mix cocoa powder (or other "spice") and vanilla sugar to the dough.
  5. Separate the dough to the muffin casserole. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
  6. ENJOY 😊

A letter to younger me

Dear younger me,

Don't let others tell you what you can or cannot do, what you can or cannot dress, how you can or cannot look. Don't let others thoughts become your thoughts. Don't let others beat you, verbally nor physically.

Be you. Be yourself. Be strong. You are strong, smart and beautiful. You are not weak, dumb, ugly or fat. You are you and you are good enough when you are just you. You are good enough, strong enough, beautiful enough, smart enough. 

Believe in yourself. You're not going to get what you want if you don't believe in yourself. Say "Fuck you" to everyone who says that you can't do something. Say "Fuck you" and prove them that you can do anything. Say "Fuck you" and don't care about them.

Be happy and do whatever you want. Do whatever you love to do. And the most important - love yourself.

Love and peace,
Older me

Something about me

Hi! I´m Linda, a 16-year-old human from nowhere. Okay, let's be honest - I'm from Finland. So first of all, sorry about the possible mistakes I'll probably make, since English isn't my first language. 😄

Well, why I'm writing in English then? Honestly, English just feels more comfortable than Finnish. I don't know why, but it really feels maybe even easier than Finnish. I even see dreams in English, and sometimes I think in English, so obviously it feels better language to write with.

I've already tried two or three times writing a blog but failed every time. Now, when I started reading one of my classmates blog, I just felt the urge to try again - and now in different language. I think this is kind of exciting. 😆

I love reading and writing. I still read quite a lot books, but now I usually read fanfiction, mostly about Harry Potter. Yes, I'm a big fangirl! I also love The Hunger Games and Twilight (I already can hear people judging and disliking me). I also found the Marvel movies, such like Captain America, Iron Man, X-men... while I was on spring break. I mean, how could I miss those things? How couldn't I start watching them earlier? They're very good, and the actors. Amazing. Hugh Jackman, Robert Downey Junior, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson and many others, you just got yourselves a new fan!

My other hobbies are fangirling (obviously), dreaming, sleeping, learning languages, listening to music (I love heavy metal and steampunk), watching movies and baking.

I should be doing homeworks and other school stuff instead of writing this post, so I guess I'm finished with this now... Bye!
