LULLABY FOR A REALIST

Today is a special day as this post is my very first here on Arctic Vanilla. So, let’s start with the basics. My name is Anna, and I’m living here in Helsinki. I’m a medical student and I’ve been studying medicine for six years now. Here in Finland medical school actually lasts six years, which means my graduation is approaching soon and I’m gonna be a proper adult in just a few months (I doubt the latter, though). So exciting! My blog isn’t about medicine, however. I created Arctic Vanilla to escape the world of science every once in a while and to enjoy all the wonderful prettier things in life. This escapism is my way to bring out the aesthete in me. I’m pretty sure you have an aesthete in you, too, and perhaps that’s the reason you found your way here. I’d love to get to know you too, so feel free to leave a comment!

Kirjoitan juuri Arctic Vanilla -blogini ensimmäistä postausta, ja juuri siksi tää päivä on mulle aivan erityinen. Siltä varalta, että haluat tietää enemmän tytöstä Arctic Vanillan taustalla, aloitan kertomalla muutamia faktoja minusta. Nimeni on Anna, ja olen Helsingissä asuva, mutta Turussa lääketiedettä kuudetta vuotta opiskeleva nuori nainen. Näillä näkymin lääketieteen lisensiaatin tutkinto on kasassa kolmen kuukauden kuluttua, ja loppukeväästä onkin tiedossa ihania juhlallisuuksia valmistumiseen liittyen. Lääkäriys on luonnollisesti keskeinen osa minua, kuitenkaan tässä blogissa kyse ei ole lääketieteestä. Loin tämän blogin saadakseni vastapainoa tiukalle opiskelulle ja vaativalle työlleni, ja voidakseni täysillä nauttia arjen kauneimmista asioista. Kiitos  kun eksyit blogiini. Olisi mukavaa, jos jättäisit kommentin, sillä niin opin jotain myös sinusta!

Hei fra Norge! My name is Eiliyah and I'm an 18 year old girl from Norway. I saw a comment you posted on the norwegian blogger Anette's blog (Nettenestea) and got interested, so I clicked in here :D Now I've been scrolling through all your blogposts, and this was the final, or should I say first. The reason I got interested was because you've been studying medicine and now, you're a doctor! But at the same time you have a blog. Since childhood, I've had a dream of becoming a doctor one day, that would mean everything to me, because there's nothing I want more than to help others. That's why I want to ask you a few questions, and I would really appreciate if you could answer. When did you decide to become a doctor? Has it been very tough? I'm trying my best at school, but math is just not my thing... It seems like my brain won't accept it or something, but on the other hand I'm very good at languages culture, science and that stuff (not that good in physics either..) Do you think this will cause me problems later? I'm just really afraid that I won't be able to do it, to become a doctor, but there's no way I'm giving up! It's great to find some inspiration on your blog :)

    Hey Eiliyah, so nice that you've found your way here! I'm so flattered you took the time to scroll through all the posts, that's just wonderful. I know what I'm going to say is such a cliché, but I think that you should believe in your dreams, no matter what may come. I decided I wanted to become a doctor after studying economics for three years, but it was an option I considered already during my last year in high school. The toughest part was to get into medschool, definitely, as in Finland they require subjects such as physics and chemistry in the entrance exam. Unfortunately, I'm not that familiar with the Norwegian system, but in Finland we didn't apply physics in our studies that much after being admitted as a student. I think you should definitely try to achieve your goal. Even though it takes a lot of work, as well as long nights studying, it will all be worth it in the end! Thank you for your love sweetie, and let me know how it goes! ♥

Ahhh I'm so happy you replied to my comment, it means a lot to me! Thank you <3 I have my last year of high school left, but I'm so unsure of what to do after that. Like I told you, I want to get into medschool, the problem is that I don't have the best grades at the moment and therefore it'll be very difficult to get in right after I'm finished with high school. There's also this desire in my heart, I want to travel a little, explore new places and people.. Hopefully I'll find out what to do, and yes, I'll try my BEST to accomplish my dream and goal! :)

    Hey Eiliyah, and you're welcome! It was really nice to read your comment, and also to be of any help. Good luck with your final year in high school! While contemplating on what to do after school, remember to enjoy the present also! ♥

WEEKEND THOUGHTS
Eilen kävimme tyttöporukalla myöhäisellä brunssilla Michel-ravintolassa, oletteko te vielä päässeet testaamaan heidän brunssiaan? Michelin sisustus oli marmoripöytineen ja kultaisine valaisimineen vallan kaunis, palvelu hyvää ja pannukakut kuohkeita. Brunssi oli kuitenkin melko tyyris (28 e), ja siihen hintaan olisin ehkä odottanut jotain hieman enemmän, sitä pientä ekstraa. Tuohon hintaan kymppi lisää, niin olisi jo päässyt Kämpin brunssibuffettiin herkuttelemaan. Viihdyimme kuitenkin myös Michelissä oikein hyvin, ja sanoessamme ravintolan edessä heipat iltapäivä oli jo pitkällä. Yesterday, my girlfriends and I had a late brunch at Michel r ...

DINNER PARTY
Nyt jos on nälkä, suosittelen piipahtamaan jääkaapilla ja palaamaan postauksen ääreen sitten vasta, kun on vatsa pullollaan. Tässä muutamia kuvia äitini syntymäpäiviltä, joiden illallismenu oli ihan mielettömän herkullinen! Mieleiseni menu ei kuitenkaan tullut yllätyksenä, onhan äitini maku ruoan suhteen varsin lähellä omaani. Alkupalana tarjoiltiin parsaa ja kampasimpukoita hollandaisekastikkeen kera. Kohdallani käy usein niin, että alkupala on kaikista ruokalajeista se mieleisin, eikä tämäkään kerta ollut poikkeus. Pääruoaksi äiti oli tilannut tuorepinaatilla täytettyä kuhaa, joka tarjoiltiin herkullisen kasvistimbaalin kanssa. Myös jälkiru ...

HIGHLIGHTS OF 2015 – PART 2
JULY Heinäkuussa fiilistelin elämäni ensimmäistä palkallista lomaa, joka tuntui todella luksukselta erityisesti opiskeluaikojen työntäyteisten kesien jälkeen. Vietimme ihanan viikon Marbellan auringon alla, jonka lisäksi lomapäiväni kuluivat vanhempieni mökeillä tai kesäisessä Helsingissä. Pidin Marbellasta kyllä, vaikka Etelä-Euroopan aurinkokohteista Caprin saari Italiassa tulee varmasti aina olemaan silmissäni ylitse muiden. In July, I spent my very first summer holiday, where I actually got paid just for being on a vacation. I gotta tell you it felt good, especially after being a student and working pretty much all my summer holidays. W ...
