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! ♥

MOVING DAY!
Täällä kirjoitellaan postausta aikamoisen muuttohässäkän keskellä, näiden lukemattomien pahvilaatikkotornien välissä sitä tuntee itsensä niin pieneksi. Tuolia, jolla istua, ei enää ole, ja iltapäiväteetkin nautin kertakäyttömukista. Ei ehkä se kaikkein rentouttavin ilta, mutta tämäkin vie meitä sitten askeleen lähemmäs unelmareissuamme. Vaikka saankin mielihyvää käyttämättömien ja rikkinäisten tavaroiden poisheittämisestä, niin aina sitä muuton yhteydessä kuitenkin hämmästyy, kuinka paljon materiaa yksi ihminen voi omistaa. Here, I'm writing you this post in the midst of such a chaotic moving day hassle, a girl feels herself so small between ...

WEEKEND SNAPS
Hey peeps! Here's a few snapshots I would like to share with you, I've taken these photos during the last few weekends that have gone by. This week, I've been feeling a little under the weather which can quite well be noticed in the recent lack of posts here on Arctic Vanilla. Rather sooner than later, as I will bounce back from the flu, the blog will be updated as usual. Really looking forward to that! The last two weekends I have spent celebrating in different wedding-related events. Last weekend, my charming friend and his fiancé got married which we celebrated with a three-course dinner in a lovely, Michelin-star restaurant here in Helsin ...

GREY WITH GOLD HOOPS
Tiedättekö sen tunteen, kun sunnuntai-iltapäivästä työasiat nousevat yksi kerrallaan mieleen, ja stressi alkaa hiljalleen kaihertaa mieltä? Ai niin, huomenna täytyy muistaa hoitaa se ja tämä asia, kirjoittaa se yksi resepti ja vastata siihen sähköpostiin. Inhottavaa! Minulle yksi parhaista tavoista pyristellä tuota ikävää työstressiä vastaan on uppoutua hetkeksi tänne blogin kauniiden valokuvien ja kirjoittamisen maailmaan. You know the feeling when all the work-related stuff is slowly creeping on your mind in the late Sunday afternoon? Oh yeah - tomorrow, I have to remember this and that, write that one prescription or answer a bunch of ema ...
