What about now

Why my head is always empty when I start to write a post? I just remember I had great topics to write about, but when I open my blog and prepared to write I forgot what I supposed to write. I usually get great ideas on my way to work or in the morning when I really don’t have time to write anything down. (I really should write those down) I just have vague remembrance of the things but I don’t remember the specific things  I would have write. So I just write something I thought right now. This post will be just some jitter jatter or just about Bon Jovi. I’m not sure what I’ll come up with.

I’m on a train to go to Tampere. Tampere is a one of the biggest cities in Finland and about 150 km from Turku where I live. I have very good reason to go to Tampere. BON JOVI is going to have a gig in there tomorrow. And I’m so excited about it. I’m big fan of Bon Jovi. I wrote about that I’m not a big fan of the Guns N’ Roses, because I was so young when they had big singles and so on, but actually Bon Jovi was founded in 1983 and I was just two years old back then. So my logic isn’t quite so simple. Or I’m just weird.


So the band Bon Jovi is almost as old as me. And I really like they music. First I heard them, I mean I remember hearing them and liked it, I was about 14 years old. It was the time when they released the single This ain’t a love song” and the album “These Days“. I just had got my first cd player for my birthday and the These Days was the really first album I bought with my own money. Next year (1996) I saw Bon Jovi in Helsinki with my beloved sister.

I own Bon Jovi’s almost every album (I don’t have Fahrenheit 7800) and I’ve been in every concert their have had in Finland outdoors since year 1996. I’ve had missed one of their concert here in Finland. It was indoor gig in Turku. Yeah, in my home town. Weird, I know, but I’ve never said I’m normal. They usually have played in Helsinki Olympia Stadion, but on Sunday they going to play in Tampere Ratina Stadion. I’ve never been there (in Ratina Stadion), but example Red Hot Chilli Peppers have played there, so it can’t be a bad place to have a rock concert. 


So since 1996 I’ve been Bon Jovi’s concerts with my sister, who I love so much. It’s kind of our thing together. Luckily my sisters best friend lives in Tampere so we can stay there night or two instead of the hotel. 

So Bon Jovi tomorrow. I think I won’t write Weekly Wrap Up tomorrow because of that. Shortly I have had a pretty good week, though I haven’t been eating so regularly. Keep drinking water, especially now, because it’s really a summer time and it’s been warm.

Have a great weekend and the beginning of the week. 

Ps. I have took the pictures last time Bon Jovi was in Finland.


Just because it’s Friday

I’m sick. I have a runny nose, sore throat and fever. I’ve been sleeping and watching tv and some youtube videos. And I’ve been thinking what to write here today. And I have nothing. Well I have one thought, but it’s kind of silly one and it could be a thing that it’s just funny to me.

I don’t speak English as my native language. If you didn’t know that by now, now you do. Because of that some words doesn’t always open to me like they should. I have to examples: bellybutton and the band called Guns N’ Roses.

I’ve never been any big fan of the Guns N’ Roses. I’ve been born in 1981 so when they had their hit singles I was just in Guns-N-Roses-guns-n-roses-15303946-1280-960elementary school. Of course I’ve heard those big hit singles like Paradise City, Sweet Child O’ Mine, November Rain and so on. I really like those three songs and if I were born five years earlier I probably would have been big fan of the band. 

It took me really long time to truly understand to meaning of the Guns N’ Roses -name. I was over my twenties when I realized that its guns and roses. Really, there’s guns and then there’s roses. And yes, I’ve been learning English since I was 9 years old. When I understand the real meaning of the bands name I got it and it real suits them. 


What comes to the word bellybutton, I just always have thought it’s a hilarious word. I have always known the meaning of the word, but the word itself is just funny. I just been wondering who would came with that kind of word. Word has just been looking like a mess to me who doesn’t speak English like a native. 

lataus (2)Just the other day I remembered the word. It came to my mind when I saw a ladybug and stared to think my blog. When I think my blog I usually think in English. Probably because I write this in English. So I saw leppäkerttu and just thought it’s a ladybug in English and then I just went on and on and finally got to the word bellybutton which is a naval. And then, just then I realized  where the word comes from. It’s so obvious now. So simple that belly, stomach and the naval looks like a button. So  simple. 


I just love English as a language. There’s so many different words to the same things and there’s a lot more phrases and adjectives as in Finnish. I just hope I could increase my knowledge in English and also develop my vocabulary in the future. Maybe this blog will help me with that too. 

Do you have words in your native language or in English (if it’s not you native language) what you think is funny or make you just think some funny moments in your life?

Have great weekend, enjoy your life and loved ones.
