Life is… Songs, Movies And Love

Elämä on ihanaa, kun sen oikein oivaltaa, ja kun lentää siivin valkein kuin joutsen

Good Evening! I’m on this creative writing course at school so it’s not all so bad I guess. Otherwise I’m at school from 8 AM to 3.45 PM (8.00-15.45) everyday except on Friday 8 AM to 2.15 PM (8.00-14.15). That means I’m at school for most of the day and when I get home I have a pile of homework but all I do is just surf on the internet and can’t focus on anything. Well I actually do the homework the best way I can and I’m able to. I have hardly 4 hours time for myself  before I go to bed. It means I have zero social life and I’m tired as hell. In the weekends (this was my first weekend though) I just take it easy and I’m being lazy.

My first exam week’s results came out this Friday and I’m happy for them. They went pretty fine in my opinion so one thing less to worry about anyway.

In this period I have English (2 courses), Creative Writing, Social Studies, History, Maths and Geography. Which means 7 courses in total and about 5 exams. Well I will be fine anyway and I’m not like the laziest student in my school…

Alku aina hankalaa, lopussa kiitos seisoo.

I’ve been going to church every Sunday now. Searching my faith…

I’ve been pretty bored with my playlist on Media Monkey that I asked Saana (thanks a lot!) to help me with updating my music. So when I opened Facebook that one morning I found about 50 songs on my inbox. I’m not trough them all yet but many of them have been really great songs like: 3 Doors Down – When You’re YoungKate Voegele – You Can’t Break a Broken Heart and Pixie Lott – Broken Arrow. She is featuring my post, again! :D

Movie: Why Did I Get Married Too? (2010)

I watched Why Did I Get Married Too? again this weekend. It’s a second part to movie Why Did I get Married? (2007) which I haven’t seen yet.

Gathered together in the Bahamas for their annual one-week reunion, four close couples eagerly reconnect, sharing news about their lives and relationships. But their intimate week in paradise is disrupted by the unexpected arrival of Sheila’s (Jill Scott) ex-husband, Mike (Richard T. Jones), who hopes to break up her new marriage with Troy (Lamman Rucker) and win her back.

The others soon realize they too are not immune to the challenges of commitment and fidelity. Angela (Tasha Smith) doesn’t believe her husband, Marcus (Michael Jai White), can be faithful now that he’s a celebrity television newscaster. Dianne (Sharon Leal) and Terry’s (Tyler Perry) relationship is feeling the strain of raising children. And Patricia (Janet Jackson), a successful self-help psychologist, must finally reveal the deep flaws in her seemingly perfect marriage to Gavin (Malik Yoba).

With their relationships hanging in the balance when they return home, each couple must choose between blame and forgiveness, doubt and faith, with life-altering consequences. (Source: YouTube)

I love that movie a lot. It makes me cry and it’s so touching. I think specially Janet Jackson does a very good job in this movie. This movie is totally underrated! At the moment one of my favorite ones. And this movie is not about happy endings. This actually has real message in it and this movie means something. Why Did I Get Married Too? is about real issues you can face in relationship and in marriage.  Not like any other Hollywood movie.

I recommend it to everyone! So please watch it if you can. :)

Because these words were never easier for me to say
Or her to second guess
But I guess
That I can live without you but
Without you I’ll be miserable at best
Mayday Parade – Miserable At Best

Täällä Pohjantähden alla, korkeimmalla kukkulalla,
Katson kauas kaukaisuuteen, tulet uniin uudestaan.
Täällä Pohjantähden alla taivas täyttyy purppuralla,
Siitä suojakseni peiton minä itselleni saan.

Ja alla Pohjantähden minä tulen, minä lähden
Ja vain Pohjantähden nähden itken vuokses kyyneleen.

Täällä Pohjantähden alla murheita on laulajalla,
Täällä kuu kuumottava on myös alakuloinen.
Täällä Pohjantähden alla hiipii sieluun asti halla
Ja vain tunteet tappamalla, rikki repii sydämen.

We will make it, honey.

I love all these songs and I think Täällä Pohjantähden alla is the most beautiful Finnish song.
Hope you enjoyed my post!
Love and strength,

The Song of the day

And to the end I want to express my worry for my mother tongue Finnish. Even though I blog in English I don’t think my Finnish has yet gotten this bad:
