23 years old dreamer living in Helsinki.
Travelling, reading, the occult and weird movies inspire me.
I share my apartment with a peculiar cat called Misha.


I got exciting news few days ago, a picture I took is going to published in a magazine! :dummy:

I have kind of mixed feelings about this, this is not at all how I expected it to happen. Well, actually I've never even considered the possibility that my work would someday be published.

Anyways, my picture will be in Hyphen Magazine ( and it comes out in April :)

I'll tell you how it happened:
I use Instagram, the awesome little app for iPhone. I took a picture of a fortune cookie I was eating because I thought it was mocking me, telling me how romance would move me in a new direction blah blah blah. Then someone commented on it telling me I should submit it to Hyphen's contest, they were looking for, what else than *drumroll*, pictures of fortune cookies! I decided to give it a try, and forgot about it completely until I got a message saying my picture was chosen for the publication.

So yeah, of course it feels awesome that a photograph I took is gonna be in a magazine and everyone will see it, but...I took a quick look at the rest of the photos in the competition and most of them weren't good. At all. It'd be different if all of the pictures were great, now it's like my picture is just one of the "not so bad" ones instead of one of the best ones.

And the picture is taken with my cellphone, kinda funny as I always say "I ONLY SHOOT FILM" and then the first picture of mine that is published is taken with a digital camera, oh the irony. And what bothers me is that I didn't even really try, so I feel a little bit like I don't deserve it! It's just a snapshot of a half eaten cookie with a silly prophecy inside.

AAAAaaghhh I need to snap out of this! Why am I only complaining when something like this happens? So let's change the attitude a little:

I'm being published!  Yay! Let's have a drink for it!!
