Spring colors!

Hih! It´s spring! Nature is getting alive again. And so am I.

Pastel colors are in, this spring!
So, also I had to get some new colors to wear!



Nail polish and a nice blouse!
Oh, even me... me who is always wearing black or some greenish / natural colors!
What´s wrong with meeee?
Spring, I guess <3

Hm, also I noticed my studying is pretty spring- stylish now ;)




Hmh, anyways it´s 1 am, I have an exam tomorrow, and I´m here writing about some nonsense!
Oh, I better go finish my studying now, if I´m willing to sleep at least a bit tonight!


Have a nice day! Keep on smiling!

A Rainy Spring Day

Sunday, raining, alone at home....

What could be a better way for escaping studies and exam preparation than listening to music and eating a piece of cake, with a huge cup of coffee! 
.. yeah, I bet you won´t find a much better option.. 

Yesterday I made some quark pie, for our church´s youth meeting.. and left a couple of pieces for myself, of course. :P
My mom has always been doing this pie on Easter time, and as I found an easy recipe (here) I decided to give it a try as well!

2 teaspoon - vanilla sugar
2 teaspoon - baking soda
2 teaspoon - baking powder

1 lemon

Enjoy!

Waste talk!

Dear Blogspot,

Today I will tell you a bit about recycling! Waste talk... Or, talk about waste!

Yesterday we visited my town's recycling center and landfill (Yes, I´m studying Environmental Engineering, if you wonder why..)
It was quite eye- opening I´d say!
To be honest, I was a bit suprised that everything was so well organised. But on the other hand, seeing the landfill and The Huuuge pile of waste, made me wonder how big is My Own part of the pile!

Do you know how much of waste do we generate?
Well.. Let me tell..

If we share the amount of waste we produce nowadays, one person generates average 1,2 kg of waste per day. If you do a fast calculation it makes 438 kg per year!
(But it varies, depending on where you are from, for example in Finland we generate averagely 4300 kg of waste per person per year, almost 10 times more than the average of the world. )

Then considering we have about 3 billion residents in the world..... We end up to this number ----> 1 314 000 000 000 kg of waste per year = 1,3 billion tonnes of waste!
Seems like a big number, doesn´t it?

According to some estimations the amount of waste we generate will even be doupled, in the next 10 or 15 years.
Should we probably do something?
Or do you personally prefer swimming in a waste sea in the future?

Yeah, maybe these numbers made it more clear for you. But in case it's still not clear enough, let's create a picture for your great mind.

The volume of your waste naturally varies, because not all waste is the same. It can vary even between 50 - 500 kg/m3.  But let's assume averagely you can fit 150 kg of waste into one cubic meter. This means every year, you need a new 1 m x 1m x 3m space for the waste you generate!
Then what if we count it for the whole world. ( I´m a bit scared to do that, but iĺl do it anyways..)
I came up with the volume of 8 760 000 000 m3!
This means every year we need a space which is;
50 meters high, 50 meters wide, and 3 504 kilometers long...
just for the waste we produce in one year! Scary, huh?

What can you do to reduce the amount of waste you produce?
Do you recycle?
Do you thing we can generate this huge amount of waste without recycling some of it?
Could we find some more solutions for the utilizations of the waste?

Dear Blogger, I just want to make you think a bit.

But, I think that's about it today!
Maybe sometime I will tell more about the options of what to do with the waste we generate!
Or do you have some ideas for it?

A New Beginning!

Everyone and everything deserves a second chance, right?
So does my Blog I think... and me- as a blogger!

I´ve decided to give the blogger-me a second chance! Woho!

From now on I´ll be writing about my life, post some photography, some nature topics (who knows..), and whatever comes to my mind!

And yes, the language...
At the moment I find it more interesting to practice writing in English.


I wish you a happy day!

Blogin uusi elämä alkaa nyt!

Syysväreissä


Oranssia, punasta, vihreetä, keltasta, ruskeeta...
Ruska!
Tänään, kun kävelin kotiin aurinko paistoi lämpimästi, mut ilmassa tuoksu jo ihan syksy.
Ihanaa, et luonto alkaa hehkua lämpimiä värejä sillon, 
kun päivät pimenee ja aurinkokin muuttaa etelään.
Luonto haluaa selvästi piristää meitä ennen sateita ja talven harmautta,
Joten nautitaan syksystä!



Ja näinpä siis myös tein kiva syksyn värisen pyöröhuivin novitan Puro- langasta.
Tosin seuraava, vähän neutraalimman värinen huivikin on jo suunnitteilla ;)

Nyt kelpaa odotella viileitä ilmoja!


Käsityökärpäsiä

Kärpäsiä tähän aikaan vuodesta?
Kyllä! Ainakin mä oon saanut pahan pistoksen.
Syksy tulee, linnut lentää etelään ja käsityökärpäset muuttaa mun luo pysyäkseen talven hengissä! 

Tässä parit viikonlopun aikana syntyneet tuotokset. : )

 Nämä kivat pussukat valmistuivat aika nopsasti tällä ohjeella.
Toiseen vaan suurensin kaavoja muutamalla sentillä.



 Ja vähän sydämiä <3

Ja sitten virkkasin elämäni ensimmäiset isöäidinneliöt. : )
Löysin kaapista pätkän trikookudetta, joten siitä muotoutui pannunalunen.
Pienepi kulkekoon vaikka nimityksellä mukinalunen.
Näitä neliöitä tehtaillaan varmasti lisääkin. Hih.

Yksi kaulahuivikin syntyi käsityövimmassani, mutta ei vielä suostunut kuvattavaksi ennen repsottavien langanpäiden parturointia. : ]

Joten nämä tällä erää!

Mukavia syksyn jatkoja!
