Something more from Helsinki

Just to annoy you:

Satellite “map” of Suomenlinna and official Suomenlinna web site.

Sibelius monument in Sibelius park.

Helsinki Cathedral (Evangelical Lutheran cathedral) in Senate Square.

Presidential Palace.

Uspenski Cathedral of Finnish Orthodox Church. 😉

Finlandia Hall next to Töölö Gulf.

Olympic Stadium where 1952 Olympic Games were held.

So, there’s something more about Helsinki for you to check out. Lot of links and not much text in this post, but unfortunately I’m still bit cranky because I had to get back to work today. I will post something else, maybe tomorrow.

Ranting and bitching with unsatisfactory explain

I received mail from one school where I applied. They informed me that I got to the second round and the time and place for the test. Funniest thing is that I don’t even remember applying to that school! I did apply to every sschool that had something interesting available and now it started to pay off, I assume. I’m still waiting mail from one school, the one where I REALLY want to go study.

It’s been funny day at work. I was on sick leave for two weeks and I was so frustrated this morning to get back to work.. My back hurst like hell, but I have no choice at the moment, trust me I don’t. I try to live with it and if it’s getting worse and/or is still painfull after I finish one project at work, I will go to doctor and get myself done with this thing and work.. And even though this work might be interesting, the over all feel and atmosphere at the office really brings it all down. The boss is not capable, the work load is killing people over here, other departments are trying to throw us things they fucked up just to get rid of the responsibility. The usual stuff in the government job, right? Maybe, but it all adds up to this big pile of shit because our boss is not trying to keep us together but rather is ripping the department apart..

I know I’m bit down and depressed because of this work, not only because how it is at the office, but also because I lost THREE good opportunities/jobs because I’m tied to this crap. I so need to get into school after this. Thank god it’s only 4 more months, in fact it’s exactly 117 days.. Then I’ll have week or two of NOTHING before school starts. I really need that time off, even the week would be enough.

Bad mood and trash

Sometimes I wonder what people are thinking. Now that snow has melted (mostly), there’s trash and other shit everywhere. It looks like dump everywhere. There’s beer and soft frink cans here and there, even milk cartons and sausage wraps. There’s fast food bags and papers lying around, just meters from a trash can. There’s cigarette buts, hundreds of them, right next to outdoor ashtray. There’s all kind of trash lying around.

It’s out of sight out of minds mentality. In winter snow covers everything, but in spring, when snow melts, it all comes visible. Why? Is it so hard to walk that extra 20meters to the trash can? Is it so hard to put cigarette butts in that ashtray? What the fuck is wrong with you people??

Then this rant about dog poo. Wake up assholes, one pile of dog shit is gone in a week (it DOES decompose, you know) but all those aluminium cans, plastic wraps and rest of the trash will be there as long as someone takes it to trash can. I just wonder how much it costs the city to clean up all this mess. That money could be spent to something more usefull: hospitals need money, elderly care needs money and so on. But selfish fuckers who keep throuwing their shit around take the money away. It’s weird, do they throw their shit around at home too??

Whining

I’m tired, my back hurts and I’d rather stay home than sit here at the office. You wouldn’t believe if I told you, that much this place sucks.
