Just a quick update, cause I haven't wrote a personal journal in a long time. =)

Yesterday went to Norah Jones' concert in Pori Jazz Festival in Finland. I've been a fan of hers for a long time and was so happy to see her live, especially since we hardly ever get any world class artists coming to tour to such a small country like mine. The concert was wonderful! :heart:
I think it was the highlight of my summer. Besides yesterday, my summer has been quite boring, I don't have any holiday at all and I've been so busy and stressed out with my work, having a lot of trouble sleeping. I haven't been able to do  any of the things I normally enjoy doing in summer, like swimming in the lake, being outdoors, enjoying the sun, spending time with family and friends etc... So yesterday was just so nice to relax and enjoy one of my favourite artists.  :aww: With great company and perfect weather too!

Another thing, I finally ordered myself my first zoom lens, which I talked about getting some months ago already, Tamron A005 SP 70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di VC USD. :eager: I'm hoping it will arrive this week in the mail (ordered from UK cause it's cheaper there than my super expensive country). I hope I'll be able to find some time to visit the Zoo then, and snap some shots of animals. =)

That's all for now, have a nice week people! :huggle: :sun:
And thank you anyone who faved my works lately, it's much appreciated.


  • Listening to: Norah Jones - All A Dream

It's great that something so nice happened just when you needed to relax :)
I'm looking forward to see the photos taken with a new lens because I myself was considering this one. I only bought Tamron 55-200 because they said in the review that 70-300 doesn't always take perfect quality photos above 240mm. Only then I realized that 240 is still more than 200 :P
Have a nice time :)

I hope I'll be able to show some new photos soon. The lens still hasn't arrived, I think it will on monday though.
Thank you and you too! =)

Yey, it surely sounds like a great evening! Norah Jones is great, I admit it. Also, congrats on new lens.
I'm sorry to hear you have trouble sleeping, especially since I experience it often, too. I know what it is. I recently started drinking a glass of ice cold mint liquor with Sprite, but I'm kind of afraid I might get addicted to that.... I wish you feel better soon :huggle: :meow:

Thanks! :huggle:
Yeah I've had this problem for many years, not all the time but it always gets worse when I'm feeling stressed. Does the liquor help you fall asleep? Someone also told me to try drinking a shot of brandy before going to bed. I might try one of those... although it could become a bit expensive in the long run or I might get addicted too.

Well it kind of helps me calm down. It's not some strong stuff and it's very refreshing when mingled with Sprite and ice cubes, perfect for summer. But I'm still afraid of getting atticted, so I didn't drink today. Maybe I had to, though, 'cause my brother is angering me, I must get up early tomorrow and I'm very worried about my best friend 'cause he's feeling very bad and I can't help him much... anyways, these are unnecessary details.
I think a cup of warm tea also helps for calming down and sleeping easily, but I can't tell for sure, since I only drink Earl Grey and it's very strong :XD:
