Title: I, me

I, me myself
My Autobiography
  • My name is ..
  • Im 15 years old and I was born on March the
    27th (1992)
  • I live in Finland and my hometown is Turku
  • Find out more about me at the following
    pages! ?

Me at the tivoli on 22th of April 2007
Me at the age of four.
The way I am
The way I look
I look quite ordinary. My hair color is reddish
brown (Im going to dye my hair to pretty dark
brown) and I also have a long hair. My eyes are
green and they also have brown and even yellow. I
have weird eyes, but I like the colour. Im not
skinny but not fat either, or thats what I
think. ? I am pretty short, too short maybe. c
Only 158cm (about 52), but its OK. My shoe
size is 37. I wear normal clothes. The color of
my clothes is often black, but I dont know why.
Maybe I should try to buy more colorful clothes..
Especially now, when the summer is coming and you
just cant wear black at summer! My favourite
color is green and it also shows at my clothes. I
think that I have like fifty-fifty black and
green clothes. D Of course I have also something
else than black and green but you know what I
  • It's pretty hard to describe yourself, but
    Ill do my best.I am quite normal girl of my
    age. I think that Im pretty nice person. Im not
    aggressive or anything like that. (D)
  • My fundamental character isnt very
    outgoing. I may seem even a bit quiet and shy. I
    am a little bit shy with people that I dont know
    so well. But with friends Im laughing, laughable
    and loud.

My pets
I have always loved animals, but I have never had
many pets. I love dogs the most, but
unfortunately I dont have one. (Read more about
this dog-thing from My hobbies.) I have one
fancy rat named Åke. Shes a girl, even though
she has a boys name. Åkes color is English
Lilac agouti. I think that Åke is quite typical
rat. Shes pretty old already in the rats age
(2-y), but she still keeps going. Her favourite
food is water melon. ) My previous rats were
Siru and Oona (in the picture) and they were
absolutely wonderful pets. ? And they were my
first ones. Siru and Oona were sisters, they were
from the same litter. I guess that their
favourite food was roasted rice. Sirus kennel
name was Zayas Silver Cholite Ursa and Oonas
was Zayas Chocolic Ulothricious. Siru and Oona
were very intelligent like fancy rats usually
are. Fancy rats are great pets and Ill have
more rats someday (thats for sure)!
Siru Oona, my first pets ?
My friends
I have only a few friends, but Im totally OK
with that cause those friends that I have, are
the best. ) Im not very good at making
friends.My friends are quite similar comparing
to me. I guess thats why we are friends. We have
many things in common, but also just enough
differences, so we dont get along too well. D
My best friends are at the same class with me,
so I see them almost every day. Of course we see
each other at our spare time also. I have one
more friend. I have known her about 11 years, so
I know her pretty well. D I have had many
friends in my life, but unfortunately our paths
has gone to different directions.

My friends in Helsinki
My hobbies
  • I dont have many/any real hobbies,
    but who defines whats a real hobby and whats
    not? I think that a real hobby is something that
    you have to pay for. I mean the membership fee
  • My hobbies are reading, postcrossing,
    music, cycling and Im also a 4H-dogsitter.I
    used to do scouting and I played piano, but got
    fed up with those so I quit.My latest hobby is
    dogsitting. Its really fun, rewarding and thats
    my biggest dream to take care of dogs and I just
    love being with dogs and go for a walk and so
    on..!I also enjoy reading. I read all kinds of
    books. Im reading Harry Potter and the
    Half-Blood Prince right now. I started to read
    the Harry Potter -series at the beginning of this
    year (2007).One of my favourite books is called
    Sannan jenkkivuosi. Music has a huge place in
    my heart, even though I dont go to any
    instrument lessons anymore. I just love singing
    and listening to music. I still play piano at
    home, but not so much.I really like cycling and
    I often cycle to school even though I have about
    7 kilometres to school.
  • Postcrossing is pretty fun too. The
    thing is that first you got to register to
    http//postcrossing.com/ and then youll get an
    address and then you have to send a postcard to
    that person whos address youll get. Find out
    more about postcrossing from that same internet
    address. ?

Vicky when her family was gone for a day.

My interests
  • Im into couple of things and I'll list
    those here..
  • - languages - travelling - dogs
    - music - decoration - reading -
    friends - photographing - surfing at the
    internet and chatting via
    messenger with friends

My home
  • I live in Turku. My home is a rowhouse/
    terraced house. It has about 100m2 .We have two
    floors. We have four rooms and a big kitchen. We
    have two toilets and the shower is in the
    upstairs toilet. We have small yards in the
    back and the front of our apartment. We have also
    a big balcony and patio in the backyard.

This picture has been taken from our front yard
last summer.
My room
  • My room is quite small and its always
    messy. Im not very good at keeping my room tidy.
    And as a matter of fact I find my things better
    when everything lies on the floor. I have two
    windows, wardrobe, desk and a bookcase. I have a
    parvisänky (I didnt find that word anywhere),
    its like a bunk bed, but without the bottom
    bed.I dont have a computer or TV in my room,
    but I have a radio/CD-player and thats just fine
    to me.

I dont have any picture of my room, so this must
be ok. D I have collected cow stuff and these
fellows are definitely a part of my room
My school
  • My school is old and it has had many names
    before this one. First, back to 1928, when my
    school was founded, it was called Turun II
    Suomalainen Lyseo. Nowadays my schools name is
    Puolala school, but before the primary school and
    the secondary school was united, my school was
    called the Puolalanmäki school. So now when the
    whole comprehensive school is together, our
    school has a lot of pupils! Maybe about 900? My
    school has many buildings, but we have lessons
    only in the main building, S-building and home
    economics in Eskeli. My favourite subjects are
    English, Swedish and home economics.

An old picture of our even older main
building ?
My future
  • I dont really have any idea what Im
    going to do on the future. I think that most
    teenagers of my age do know at least what they
    are interested of. Well I know it too, but not so
    clearly, I guess. D First of all, I do know
    that Im going to the gymnasium, but Im not even
    sure which. Maybe I stay in Puolalanmäki, but I
    wont go to the music class. I have also thought
    about going to IB-school, but Im not sure if Im
    good enough. (Particularly with maths, cause if
    you go there you have to be pretty good with
    it..) My future occupation is not clear at all,
    but Im interested in something where I could
    speak English (and/or some other language) and
    interior decorator would also be amazing.

My Finland
  • Finland is a quite small country situated
    in the Northern Europe. Finland is often called
    the country of lakes and forests cause about
    250 000km2 of Finlands area is covered with
    forests. Finland has about 187 888 lakes. Finland
    is quite flat. Finlands population is about 5,3
    milj. Thats not much, but just perfect for me.
    The weather is very different in a different
    season. In the summer it may be 30 and in the
    winter it can be even -30, but that happens very
    rarely. But Finland isnt just all about
    forests and lakes. It produces stufflike Nokia
    mobilephones, Iittala-glasses and Marimekko is
    also Finnish invention. I love Finland and
    (almost) everything about it. (Turku is the best
    town )) The midnight sun is amazing, even though
    its sometimes hard to sleep.

  • I love travelling abroad.I have been in
    (Finland,) Sweden, Estonia, Denmark, Germany,
    France and Switzerland. Thats not very much and
    Id like to go anywhere. I have flown with an
    airplane only once, to Paris. First I was even a
    bit scared, but soon it turned out to be very
    nice and not scary at all. Turku Airport was
    really small, but I knew that Charles de Gaulle
    (International Airport) is going to be so much
    bigger. Going through the customs was a new
    experience to me. The custom inspectors emptied
    my cousins backpack, even though she was carrying
    only some stuffed animals. D When we went to the
    baggage reclaim, we heard that all the baggage of
    some flight has gone to a wrong place. We were
    lucky that that wasnt our flight and soon we got
    our baggage.

get to our gate.

  • Vehicles are very important factor in our
    everyday life. Long journeys are easy to drive
    with a car, its fast and like I said, easy. Car
    is a really good invention. Anyway, nowadays I
    prefer a bicycle or a public transport. Bike is
    also a good invention, cause you can go with
    pretty high speed, its a good exercise and it
    doesnt pollute the environment. Public transport
    is also good (mostly buses to me) because they
    carry a lot of people at the same time, so it
    doesnt pollute as much as if everybody in that
    bus would go with their own car. And a bus ticket
    is really much cheaper than gas.

Our car, Fiat Punto
Comparing two cities
the breakwater of Pärnu
  • My first impression of both of the
    cities was that they are amazing and very good
    tourist locations.Pärnu is Estonia's summer
    capital and everybody can see it. It is very
    good summer location because it has a huge beach
    and very good sea that you can swim in. I didnt
    get to know a Pärnus public transport, cause we
    spent most of our time in the beach and if we
    went somewhere, we took a taxi. Taxis were OK.
    The drivers were nice and they understood
    Finnish. Food was good and of course very similar
    to the Finnish one.Stockholm is not at all like
    Pärnu. It is a capital of Sweden and there are
    lots of historical buildings and the changing of
    the guard is nice and very official. It was easy
    to communicate with Swedish people in English (I
    couldnt speak any Swedish by then). Food was
    good. We ate smörrebröd even though its a Danish
    invention. The taxi drivers in Stockholm were
    very quiet and they didnt speak much.

Stockholm's changing of the guard
  • Normally I don't like shopping, but
    sometimes its OK. I like to shop alone and
    without a rush.I buy my clothes from a normal
    stores like HM and Seppälä, I guess. I like big
    shopping centres, but we dont have many of those
    in Finland. But Mylly is a big one to me. D You
    can get everything there, so its a good place.

Four Seasons
  • I love that fact that we have four
    seasons in Finland. You dont get so bored with
    the weather. There is something good with every
    season.Sometimes the winter may seem a little
    bit too long, but its OK, when you see the first
    birds of the spring. I like the snow, but
    sometimes its too cold. It is very dark, thats
    not good. Spring is the shortest season in
    Finland. Its when the snow melts away and
    everything starts to grow.Summer is my
    favourite season (in addition to spring). Its
    very warm and its about 18-28C all the time.
    You can do everything at summer and you dont
    have school! Thats definitely the best thing.
  • The autumn is never nice, because then
    you have to go to school and everything starts to
    wither. There is one good thing with autumn
    there is amazing colour in the nature so youll
    get good pictures of it!

  • Bullying can be either physical or mental
    and both are very bad. I think that maybe mental
    is even worse. I dont know why someone likes to
    bully, but its really stupid. Maybe the bullies
    have a low self-confident and they have to bully
    someone to get more self-confident. Some people
    get bullied because of their looks, skin colour,
    but I dont understand why. Different people make
    this world complete. Bullying isnt fair and if
    someone is bullied and you know it, you should
    tell to a grown up who can help!

I dont really know how to define a hero.
Everyone is a hero in a way. I dont have any
special hero. I think that doctors (nurses..
etc..) and firemen are a huge heroes, because
their job is to help people and save
lives.Everyone who helps someone who is close to
them is a hero.
My Sunday
  • Usually at Sundays I sleep as long as I
    want. So I get up about eleven o'clock. 'D I
    dress up, eat breakfast and watch TV, I think.
    Sometimes I go somewhere with my friends, but
    last Sunday, which was yesterday, I didn't do
    anything 'cause weather was bad and I read to the
    exam of English. Usually I don't do anything
    special... I listen to music and read. Maybe I
    check if I haven't done some of my homework yet..
    Most of my time I sit in front of my computer.
    n_n I chat at MSN Messenger with my friends.
    It's fun and time flies. D Eh. ____

Ive collected my comments from every single
project to here so you can read what I think for
example about James Bond! DD Im starting from
the old ones..
Yep, that was it. My Sunday and those other old
projects are really SO old that I dont even
recognize that Ive written those cause I dont
write that way anymore.

My Sunday. D Well thats not me, as you can see,
but you know what I mean.
Globe- trotters
  • I haven't been abroad so many times, that
    I could tell you something interesting.. I've
    only been in some Nordic countries and Middle
    Europe, and their culture doesn't have very many
    differences comparing to us. One thing, that I do
    now know, is that for example French people are
    much more polite that we are. That doesn't mean
    that Finnish people are impolite, but being
    polite just isn't natural to must of us and for
    example cheek kisses are not a part of our
    culture.I just love travelling and I hope that
    some day I have enough money to travel where ever
    I want. DFirst locations that I want to go to
    are (among others) Thailand, England, USA etc.

Keeping Up Appearances
  • I havent done this project (I suppose
    because I didnt know what to write), but Ill
    try to write something..I liked watching
    Keeping up appearances at our lessons. It has
    weird British humour and it was fun to watch a
    British sitcom series and learn at the same time.
    Some of the characters are very funny, especially
    Hyacinth, because shes the main character.
    Hyacinth is very bossy women who desperately
    tries to be a part of the upper-class (even
    though she is very middle-class), so she answers
    the phone "The Bouquet residence, the lady of the
    house speaking. I cant really name my
    favourite character, cause they are all so
    funny/good actors, but still, Elizabeth is one of
    my favourites. She is afraid of Hyacinth and she
    always spills her coffee/tee to Hyacinths
    precious carpets. The best thing in this show is
    just everything. The situation comedy is so
    amazing. ?

My letter to Santa Claus
  • Dear Santa,
  • First, I hope that you have time to read my
    letter. I think I've been kind enough this year.
    I have been working hard in school this autumn.
  • I think that you should bring lots of
    presents. Even thought I admit, my room is a real
    mess and I haven't cleaned up in a while. I
    should do that, I know.
  • I hope that there would be a lot of
    snow this Christmas, but I think that that is too
    much to ask, 'cause there is about 7 degrees and
    only about two weeks to Christmas. There must be
    snowing, huh?
  • I'm going to spend my holiday just
    relaxing and in the Christmas eve I'm probably
    with my family and/or friends. I don't like the
    most of Finnish Christmas foods. For example the
    food called 'rosolli' is disgusting. What foods
    do you like?
  • Sooo, as I said, I wish for white
    Christmas, but something else also. iPod would be
    nice. I don't know what else to ask, but I count
    on you!
  • Have a great Christmas and don't get too
    tired going around the world in only one night!
  • With love, Little-Em.

Me and Santa. Christmas 1996
Britney and Kevin
On the other hand I agree with Julle. I
mean if Britney really has a depression ( the
alcohol problem), they should leave her alone and
let her recover. I'm not so interested
what Britney does 'cause she isn't really my
closest friend, you know. )
Yep, I agree with you all (/two D) !
When I said that I'm not so interested what
Britney does, I really didn't mean that it would
be the same to me if she died or something. Of
course she should have a happy life like
everybody else. And like Klaara said, she
must be REALLY tired! She has had a huge career
already and she is still pretty young.
  • I don't really have any opinion of Britney
    or/and Kevin's marriage/divorce, because I don't
    understand why it is anyone else's business than
    Britney and Kevin's and their families. But
    still I can tell my opinion of Britney. I think
    that she is a good singer and talented, 'cause
    she has started so early. Her music isn't even
    near of my taste. I don't like her image. I
    don't know anything about Kevin Federline, but I
    don't like him either. I don't like rap and I
    don't know him, so I can't tell anything good
    about him! D
  • Britney's New Look Is Bald!
  • Haha. I think that Britney has really
    lost her mind this time. But I don't know. Maybe
    media is just making it look that way.

Beauty behind the make-up?
Dove has made really good job with doing
those videos, 'cause hopefully it makes people to
think. (Klaara, I want to ask you
something how do you define "normal"?)
AND I want to add one more thing to
this.. I really think that that girl/women was
pretty before she got all that make-up on her.
She was looking normal! Afterwards she was
looking very unnatural and not very beautiful.
  • In this project we were supposed to make a
    conversation about two videos made by Dove. (You
    can watch the videos in Portti.)
  • Heres what I thought
  • Uhh, I found the first video even a bit
    scary. She was changing so fast and the
    photoshopping-part was so weird.
  • Media is photoshopping commercials and
    other things all the time! I think that's sad,
    'cause natural people are usually the most
    beautiful. That's what I think.
  • The other video is really sweet. I've
    seen it couple of times before so it was familiar
    to me.
  • I think that people (mostly girls/women)
    shouldn't worry so much about their looks.

" No wonder our perception of beauty is
My opinion about that Find your
style-video has changed from that and now a
think that its pretty good. And it sells, I
think. It is a good commercial. ?Still I
havent visited IKEA, but I do have one thing
from there! D My sister brought me a soft animal
which is called Minnen råtta.
  • In this project we were supposed to tell
    our opinion of two IKEA-commercials (and also
    about IKEA).Here is what I wroteBoth
    commercials were good in some way. D
  • First commercial (Find your style,
    woman changing heads) wasn't really my style. I
    mean that didn't like it so much.
  • It was even a bit weird. The idea was
    good, but I didn't like the result.
  • I had to watch that video a couple of
    times 'till I really understood it and had
    something to say.
  • I loved the second video! That dog is so
    cute. Quality of that video is also better so it
    was nice to watch. The dog seems to be so smart
    and humanitarian.
  • I have never been to Ikea, but I would
    want to go. c

I agree with Siiri. But I would say that
some people go there, 'cause they want their
"five minutes in the spot light". I mean that
even if they know that they can't sing, they just
go there for fame. I don't like Anna
Abreu. I don't really know why. She's just too
young. Her voice is ok, but I still don't like
her. My favourite is Mia Permanto. I don't
know why either.. She just has great personality
and she has an amazing voice! -------------------
------------------------------- Yep, my
favourite idol 2007 is still Mia and I hope that
she will get a recording contract soon! ?
  • This projects idea was that we make a
    conversation about Finnish Idols and The American
    Idol-competition. You can see my comments here.

Finnish Idols I like to watch Idols,
but I would never go there. DD I don't
like the judges 'cause I think that they don't
know much about music business. Well of course
they know, but I just don't like them.. Nina
Tapio is stupid. I think that in the
finals judges shouldn't say their opinion, 'cause
it effects a lot for the watchers. I mean it's
almost the same that judges would decide the
  • American IdolI like to watch American Idol,
    'cause they have so many talented singers. But
    still, I wouldn't say that American Idol is much
    better than the Finnish one. USA's population is
    about 57(?) times bigger than Finland's, so of
    course they have also more talented singers. I
    agree that American Idol is very different to the
    Finnish one. Judges are better and usually they
    make the right decision.
  • Ryan Seacrest (the host) is a good host
    and also quite cute. ))

Kelly Clarkson first, and the best American Idol
James Bond
  • I haven't seen any Bond-movies, so I can't
    really tell you who is the 'real Bond'. But
    still, I have seen many pictures of Bond and I
    think that Pierce Brosnan is the real-one, 'cause
    he just looks so 'bondish'. If you understand
    what I mean. D If someone says "James Bond", his
    face just comes up to my mind. I dont think that
    James Bond is a big hero. D Because he is so
    unreal. He always solves all the problems and
    survives every time (except this Daniel Graig, or
    thats what I have heard). He is more like
    womens hero.

  • American people
  • My stereotype of Americans is something
    like this if someone says "Americans" it
    conjures up images of (like someone has already
    said) fat and lazy people. On the other hand, the
    US is so big that there are many stereotypes.
    Hollywood is full of famous and rich people who's
    life is wonderful and perfect. There the most of
    girl-students are beautiful cheerleaders and the
    boys are athletes. But then they have also a few
    nerds who always get bullied. Then some place
    else I see a lot of poor people and slums. In
    these areas the kids are very rebel and so on.
  • And.. USA makes a lot of reality-shows so
    it makes us think that Americans are crazy when
    they are willing to go to that kind of shows and
    humiliate themselves. But maybe they are crazy, a
    little bit.. D

Uncle Sam. He is a national personification of
the USA.
Finnish people

Stereotype of Finnish people is that they
are quiet, timid and even little bit morose. They
dont usually smile and they are not good with
social contacts. Finns love the nature and they
often have a summer cottage middle of nowhere.
And when they are in sauna they just slap
themselves and other people with a bunch of birch
branch (it is called vasta or vihta). Maybe
some people think that Finns are Eskimos and they
live in igloos.
