/ / 1 5 : 4 7 / /

Guess who's back? Did not see that coming, did you? I know for certain I didn't. I thought I was done with this. I just have a lot in my mind right now, and when I have a lot in my mind, I write. And sometimes writing about imaginary characters' lives isn't enough, I'm selfish enough that I have to write about mine. I'm not gonna write that much about my life this time, though. More about my thoughts. Things I have in my mind when I say I have a lot in my mind. Things I want to see other people have in their minds too. 

See, I've been struggling with wanting to change the world. I just didn't know how to. I'm not a good speaker, or good at making people like me, so there's no way in hell I'm gonna become a politician. I'm not artistic, I can't go paint aggressive, symbolic graffitis about my opinions. So I almost gave up, deciding I'm just gonna be an average person who takes care of no one but herself. And then it hit me. I like writing. I express my thoughts the best that way. And I still have this lame ass blog, with almost 200 followers, desperately waiting for my comeback (or not). 

I'm aware that less than 200 people are not much. They're practically nothing, in a world of 7 billion or something people. But each of those, what, 185 people have a family, maybe (hopefully) friends. And maybe they happen to tell someone that "oh, by the way, I read a spectacular blog post today" and then maybe that person is curious enough to read it, and then that person tells their family and friends and that's the way to spread the word. Clearly, I'm never gonna change the world, but perhaps I can change like 0,00000000000001% of it. 

You've probably figured it out by now, that this isn't a lifestyle blog anymore. This is my way to try and make people think with their own brains. Or at least my way to think with mine. I deleted a lot of pointless posts, leaving the ones that I can honestly say I've poured my heart into. I'm not gonna post often, but I hope my posts will be the kind that stick to your head.

And why am I writing in English? In hopes that maybe someone googles something related to my posts, and ends up here. And it's quite obvious that there are more people likely to google in English than in Finnish. I just hope I won't make an unbearable number of typos. Cheers.
