About me: I live in Helsinki, capital of Finland. I have studied in Haaga-Helia University of applied sciences in Degree programme for multilingual management assistants. Currently I work as a receptonist and try to do my thesis. Hopefully I graduate in autumn. I can see I haven't use my english much (I would like to use it more). Oh well. However I like different languages. I have studied english, german, swedish, a little french and spanish. My passions are cats, music (played piano and guitar), movies, history, psychology and cooking. Six months ago I broke up with my quite longtime boyfriend and now I'm happy to start my own life with my two cats :) Finally I realized I have time for myself. Dreams, here I come.

Interests/Hobbies: Reading, movies and tv series, history (especially WWII and UK and Scotland), psychology (someday wanted to be a psychologist). I love cats (if you didn't notice yet ;)) but also big cats, want to go to Africa someday. Hmm. I also like cooking and baking. Last autumn I started gym hobby, need to get in shape before I turn to 30 ;D Now I have my 100 push-ups challenge :P I'm quite lazy lioness (my horoscope sign is Leo ;)) sometimes but I try to stay active.

Music: I'm omnivorous. I listen to almost everything from classical to angst metal, depend on my feelings :)

Movies: Hmm. The same. I'm boring. It's the big picture which matters. My all time favorites are like Message in a bottle, P.S. I love you and Horse whisperer but I still like action, drama and horror movies too. For example Sherlock Holmes movies were great. I also like psychological thrillers, Shutter Island was good. Love the criminal case movies too. Have a soft spot for animation movies.

Video Games: I haven't played much but liked L.A. Noire and Skyrim.

Books: Oh well. Lately I have read only my thesis books (Finnish publicity law, boooooriiiing ;D). And in the evenings some cat books. And some books I bought from Edinburgh (2012), like Edinburgh after dark :P Love the ghost stories.

TV: Way too many, love the series, could spend hours with these. Current favorites: Arrow, Agents of Shield, Blacklist, Broen/Bron/The Bridge, Devious Maids, Following, Game of Thrones, Haven, House, Mentalist, Musketeers, Once upon a time, Person of Interest, Revenge, Sleepy Hollow, Supernatural <3, True Blood, Vampire diaries, Under the dome, Walking dead. Just a few ;) All time favorites are Desperate Housewives and Supernatural <3
