New types of job application: insert video here

I recently spent the most amazing get-away-weekend with good friends. Lots of relaxing and talking, plenty of delicious food and numerous glasses of bubbly. One of my friends, who was there, teaches in a university of applied science. One of her many teaching topics is job searching: latest trends in her field, up-to-date tricks and…

Insert elegant evil and refuse to comment – House of Cards

In the aftermath of World Environment Day blogging contest by UNEP and TreeHugger, I started watching House of Cards, a TV series only available at Netflix. So far I’ve only seen two episodes, and already the series is far better than I expected. But then again, how could anyone fail with Kevin Spacey? It seems…

World Environment Day blogging contest, part IV

The voting in UNEP & Treehugger blog contest is still open for two days, but I think I’ll finish campaigning today and start enjoying the weekend. Today’s statistics are in the pic, taken around 4.15 p.m. Finnish time. I’ll use them as my final or almost-final result. I’m pretty sure I don’t have 1582 friends…

World Environment Day blogging competition

I made it to the top 10 in the blog competition organised by UNEP and TreeHugger. Exciting times! The first round of blogging was pretty clear-cut: we all got to write about food waste from whatever angle we chose. I wrote about Leftover love and enjoyed every minute of writing the post. After writing Leftover love, I bumped…

Springtime travel yearning

This time of year always makes me want to travel. March is the month of spring, even though in Finland it really isn’t. We’re getting more snow here and there, it’s freezing cold still, and yet, you can somehow smell the spring in the air. We see blue skies, feel the sun on our faces,…
