Still alive...

I haven't posted in ages! Or at least I think so... But I've been really REALLY busy (And I'm not lying) Being a high school senior is quite hard and I had my final matricular examen in English (hopefully I did well,) in physics (the examen wasn't that bad) and in chemistry (phew, it was so DIFFICULT). And I'm going to have a little sis/brother soon so I've been busy knitting some baby clothes (booties and a jacket to be precise) and when I get them ready I'll definately post the pictures.

En ole varmaan postaillut ikuisuuksin, mutta tällä neitillä on ollut KIIRE (enkä edes liioittele). Abi-vuosi on kyllä tosi RANKKA. Mulla oli enkun, fyssan ja kemian ylioppilaskirjoitukset ja niihin sai kyllä lukea aamusta iltaan. Enkun koe ei nyt niin paha ollut, mutta fyssa ja kemia, kyllä oli... No, toivottavasti meni hyvin. Nyt oon muutaman vauvanvaatteenkin alottanut ja toivottavasti saan ne valmiiksi, ennen kuin pikkuveli tai -sisko syntyy.

Hugs!!! ^_^
