Oh wow! It’s already February. Months have gone by super fast during the winter! Today I’ll offer you a little update about my life during last couple of months. My last what’s up update is my How I Did with My 2017 New Years Resolutions post from the end of last December and a lot have happened since then. 🙂
Studies (Medicine & Economics)
Above: This semester started with my first ever night shift in the hospital. And I’m happy to say that it wasn’t as bad as I thought. Staying awake the whole night sure is hard but when you have something to do it’s at least a bit easier.
Last fall was super busy and at the moment I feel like a winner that can achieve anything. I survived under huge pressure and this month I’ll be celebrating my graduation to bachelor of medicine, yeah (finally)!
It also feels great that between January and April I’ll have 3.5 weeks of school and 3 weeks off work. Moreover, I’ll be done with traveling to uni at late April – so 75% of this year is already behind. In Finnish medical school the third year is known to be the hardest one so the rest should be easier. Btw would you guys be interested in reading how’s it like to study medicine in Finland?
What comes to my economics studies I’ve already done one course and I’m working with couple more. It feels good to progress all the time.
Above: this winter has included quite much driving and commuting, I don’t actually even want to know how many kilometers I’ve traveled back and forth in Finland this year.
Blogging and Some
I’ve also done some excellent work with blogging so far. I got super inspired during Christmas break and I’ve already started scheduling and sketching post for the whole year. I’ve done a schedule, I’m even more organized than ever.
I’ve also got huge amount of collaboration requests. Nowadays I have requests to choose from, every time I collaborate I keep you guys in mind and I want that every article here is honest, high quality and something that matching the brand and values of Dreamer Achiever.
Because of the huge amount of request (and because some of them are actually paid – not just free candy bars but actual money wow!) I am planning to start running my own business as a content creator, writer and photographer. I’m still having my real job though. But hopefully one day this could be my real job.
Above: In the Finnish Travel Fair I met 5 other Finnish bloggers that were there for the first as well, in the picture I have the bloggers from: 1) Hetamentaries (EN/FI), 2) Dreamer Achiever (EN) , 3) Anna-Maria K (FI), 3) Ja sitten matkaan (FI), 4) 666 Places (FI), 5) Drama on the Road (EN).
One thing I’m additionally proud of is that I was visiting Finnish Travel Fair (Matka 2018) this year as a blogger / press. This is the first time I’ve been in a blogger event (I know it’s crazy that I’ve had this blog for three years and had my old one for five and I have never participated). Why this is so cool is that I get to know some cool fellow bloggers in real life there.
This event takes places in Helsinki every January, if you’re interested. I’ll do a post about this even to remind you about it and to share the latest links later this year.
I hope there will be a lot more blogger events, collabs, high quality content creating and some photo sales in upcoming months! I’ve done great so far. And btw, if you’re interested to collaborate check this out or if you want to buy my photos check my Shutterstock portfolio.
My book project is progressing slowly. I have also couple other writing projects in my mind and I cannot stop loving these. Creating is such a big passion for me. I hope you can feel the same with your studies, work or hobbies. Remember that we have to create ourselves and our dream lives!
The upcoming wedding and travels have also kept me busy. I’ll be posting about my travel plans for this year later this month. If you’re interested how our wedding planning is going – check the posts about our upcoming wedding here.
How has your year been so far? Anything cool to share? 🙂
