I think I promised to put some of these here when they were ready, and forgot, of course. I only have images of this shoot at the moment though. And, as things never are, these aren't perfect either. They are actually playing cards, but the howeveryoucallthem, suits? maybe, anyway, the symbols are missing because Christina added them to the cards herself.
I've tried writing here for like 3 times at least. It's been so long since the last entry that I don't know where to start... I was very busy for a long time, many things have happened and still it feels like everything is just like it has been for the past year or so. Which isn't true of course. Umm. Like I said, I don't know what to write. I'll try to start from the present moment.
As it happens, our landlord sued us. And we made a counterclaim. Interestingly enough our so called landlord isn't really our landlord and therefore he doesn't have a leg to stand on, or at least shouldn't have. He's name is not in any papers and he doesn't own the property either. This is a long (or shall I say never ending) story, but shortly said: the judges in Medway County Court are familiar with our "landlord", he's a proper con, but using the same tricks all the time. For example, he almost always rents the houses to foreign students... Same old tricks that seem to work well enough. There would be so much to write about. Why he's still able to be doing this to more and more people is that he's bankrupt so nobody gets money out of him, and also, it's not his name on the papers anymore. Luckily I haven't bumped into him in this small town of ours, I don't know what would I do. Or maybe it would be good, but quite unlikely to happen though. I don't think he walks anywhere. I'll tell the whole story when I get home.
I moved to my friend Tracy's house in Rochester for June, and it has been really nice living there with her. I have my porridge in the garden almost every morning. I'm still coming into the Uni every day. Technically I'm on holidays now and the term is over, but I'm using the facilities as long as I can. It's cold more often than what it is warm, so it doesn't really feel like summer. I miss home and I sometimes, more and more often, get the feeling that what the hell am I still doing here... Oh well, there's something like 9 days left. And I'm not saying that it hasn't been good here, 'cause it has. It's strange that midsummer is almost here. We should come up with something. I guess it's going to be either a bbq in Chatham or picnic in London.
Oh yeah, I've finally decided to move to London in September. I'm not completely sure about who I'm moving with, but definitely with my brother Mikko, and Adam, who is graduating now from furniture design, and is the man behind titimadam (Tiina being the woman behind titimadam). Then there's been some discussion with Hugo and Tiina as well, but not sure at all about them yet.
I don't know how long I'll be staying in Finland, but at least for July, that's for sure. I'm totally broke, so I should probably come back here for August to work before I start the third year. I'm not happy about starting the third year, yet. I just feel like I'm not ready for that, I don't know what I want to write about or about my visual. Of course I'll come up with something, it just feels like it's too soon and too BIG.
This is all for now. Happy juhannus everybody. Can't wait to see you all.
