    Weeeell, 0°C is cold, yes, but not like SUPER cold. Like regular winter cold :P I expected temperatures way below 0. Winters in Germany can easily slip into minus temperatures so I expected Finland to be even colder. I would've liked more snow too :< I love snow
    I gotta agree with you on that 26°C line, though! I can't deal with heat so anything above that is just too much for me ... which sucks because I'm in Italy and we've been having 30+ temperatures almost constantly for weeks now. SAVE ME

    Haha well you you might like other parts of the cuisine? I found their food to be a good mix of Germanic and Slavic traditions. Potatoes, good bread, meat ... also a good amount of sea food, which isn't surprising looking at all the water they got haha
    oh and they absolutely LOVE their milk. It's really funny. They have a glass of milk with like every meal. Ironically though, a lot of them are lactose intolerant.

    For me it's not so much the washing up but the whole effort of cooking haha just been too lazy for that ... so I often just make really lazy dishes such as pasta.
    You have a dishwasher? Lucky! I've lived without for the majority of my life lol the one at home in Germany broke and my mum keeps saying she wants to have it repaired .... yeeeah, she's been saying that for like 10 years now lol I don't think it's ever gonna happen. No dishwasher in England, Finland or here either. It's okay, though ... as long as you don't let all the dishes pile up *cough*
    Ramen is great though! In Finland I banned myself from buying it because I was having too much XD

    I wouldn't say living on my own is awful. I do enjoy being on my own once in a while and not having to share the flat with anyone gives you lots of freedom :> but yes, I do prefer having flatmates.
    And yeah, I lived in Finland for about 5 months as part of my year abroad. It's a mandatory part of my degree, and since I'm doing 2 languages I had to do one semester in Finland and the other in Italy.
    I really liked Finland! I would've liked to go to Turku but sadly Helsinki University was the only one my university had an exchange agreement with ... but oh well. I liked the people and I lived close enough to the center to basically walk anywhere, which was nice! I left around the 20th of December so real winter hadn't even started yet. We got a bit of snow once in a while and temperatures a bit below 0°C (~32°F) so nothing too cold. The autumn weather was just .... nothing special? Not too cold, not too warm, some sunny days, some rainy haha It wasn't too different from what I'm used to from Germany and England.
    The food wasn't too different either. Finns do love their berries though, you find everything in different berry flavours haha lots of different kinds of cider mmmh (I only really like sweet alcoholic drinks lol). I tried reindeer meat once over there. It was good but not breathtakingly different to other meats

    Hahaha yes, I'm afraid I'm one of those people who like chocolate :P I like almost everything to be honest. I do also really enjoy savory stuff! I just like food a lot in general lol I've been really lazy with cooking lately, though ... should really start putting more effort into it again.
    What about you? You like cooking?

    i'll travel with them for sure around america but i just feel like traveling around to other countries is a bit of a hassle because of school, passports, immunizations, ect. you guys at least went around to other states right? my parents haven't taken my brother and i out of the country but i've always assumed that was a norm for people with multiple kids.

    Oooh wow Braid sounds super interesting!! I just googled it and man, that's pretty! I'll definitely put that on my to-play-list :D

    Aww that's a shame! Yeah, I was just lucky again in that I could just leech off my friend's consoles hahaha If I ever get a PS3 I'll definitely play it again ... and I'll get Okami HD. Because OH MY GOD is that game gorgeous in HD (sorry I'm repeating myself now ... I'm just too obsessed with that game XD It's always gonna be my baby)

    Thanks! Somehow it always works out in the end haha
    It's great you're living with a person you like :> makes being home so much more pleasant and fun! I lived on my own for a few months in Helsinki and I did kinda miss having someone else there .... though having an apartment all for yourself does have its benefits lol

    Also I'm really craving some cake right now ... but there's no cake here. Life is so hard

    Yeeeah I guess if the game play is too awful then even great grapics won't save it haha
    I gotta admit I haven't played any of the games you mentioned, but I'll look into them maybe hehe Have you heard of Journey? I think it's a PS3 exclusive but could be wrong ... I played it at a friend's - or more like watched her play it lol it's really stunning! Beautiful soundtrack, too. It's quite short and there's no dialogue at all.. but really some experience :>

    At the moment I live with flatmates in Italy. I haven't found a place to live yet for when I return to London in September. I hope I'll be able to get to share a flat with people again because a) I like living with others and b) it's usually a lot cheaper :P but well, I can't be too picky so I'll just see what I can find
    What about you? You said you have a room mate?

    Haha I guess Germans like their beer so they didn't want their youngsters to miss out :P I think they have similar laws in Belgium?

    Hahaha well possibly! The Moon Cave can definitely get super confusing, at some point you have to return to places you've already been to because stuff changed or you gained new abilities ... I used to get lost n there but by now I've just played the game way too much so I know it quite well XD It's just so pretty ... I'm a sucker for good graphics so I often play games just because they look nice haha
    But yeah, I've never really played the Wii version but I heard there's a few bugs in there, so maybe you did encounter a major one in your game!

    Yes, I'm really glad I have several friends who are into games now :> especially Pokemon hehe
    Sadly though I'm not living with those flatmates anymore :< I had to move out for my year abroad and then the landlord decided to sell the flat (I guess he wanted to take advantage of the high housing prices in London?)

    Aaaah okay haha I'm glad you had fun!! x3 I heard that the 21st birthday is a pretty big thing over there. In Germany it's usually the 16th (legal drinking age for low percentage drinks like beer and wine) and 18th (legal age for ... everything lol becoming an adult yay)

    It definitely is underrated!
    And from what you tell me I'd say you were in the Moon Cave, which is Orochi's cave ... and that's only about 1/3 into the game hahaha Okami is a pretty long game (also you can't leave the Moon Cave unless you defeat the boss)

    Aaah yes, mee too!! I absolutely love watching others play hahah it used to weird my friends out like "aren't you getting bored? you aren't even playing yourself" but I just find it really entertaining heh
    I've always loved games, I got a GameBoy Colour with Pokemon Blue and Tetris for christmas when I was 5 or 6 and I've always made good use out of my Nintendo handhelds since then :> it's even more fun now that I have friends who are into games, too! In primary school I didn't have too many ... one of my friends had a Nintendo 64 but she didn't really play it all too much. I had one neighbour who was really into Pokemon as well ... but then his family moved to the US :<<

    Oh, no need to apologise! Hope you had a nice trip and fun with your friends :>

    Haha yeah, it can be quite hard! It was kinda funny during high school because I knew a great part of my vocabulary from the internet so I had only read but never actually heard those words. So sometimes I'd hear a word and get really excited like "oh so that's how it's pronounced!!" lol ... "weird" was one of those words.

    Oooh really?? It doesn't haven often that I meet people who played Okami! It's not too well known it seems ... even though it even got the Game of the Year award from IGN I think? But it's really a pity you got stuck :< it must've been a bug because I've never had a problem like that ... I really like the dungeon design of the game! Do you remember which dungeon you got stuck in?

    Oh yes I actually watched a friend/flatmate play The Stanley Parable for a bit and it did look like a really fun game! Amazing dialogue ... or well, narration I guess haha to be honest, the dialogue is probably what I enjoyed most about the Portal games hehe especially in the second one

    Yeah I can understand that ... I don't think I would get into the KH games on my own, but having a friend to play them with adds more fun and makes them more interesting .. at least for me :>
    what bothers me the most about the games are the boss fights I think. They are just so frustrating! It's not like I want it to be super easy, but in other games hard boss fights at least leave you feeling like "it's ok, I can do it!! If I die now I'll do better next time!" but KH bosses just leave you sitting there like ".... HOW THE PSYDUCK AM I SUPPOSED TO DO THAT"
    Or idk, maybe I'm just too incompetent for Kingdom Hearts ... :P

    I don't mean so much the sounds themselves but rather knowing HOW to pronounce words. Just look at these words: through - though - thought - tough. The spelling is near identical and yet you pronounce them so differently. How is a non-native supposed to know? That stuff can get quite confusing!
    I imagine some German sounds can be hard for people who aren't used to them - but German spelling usually tells you how to pronounce a word (though the spelling system isn't perfect either and has its pitfalls). The language that's best at spelling=pronounciation I know is definitely Finnish! If you see a letter, you know exactly what sound it represents. Even when you mix vowels together (pieni, aina, ) it's just the two separate sounds pronounced directly after each other. Need a long vowel? Easy, just double it (kuu, tänään). Same goes for consonants (kakku, pallo). It's amazing.
    (Sorry for that. I love Finnish so I sometimes give random speeches no one asked for on it haha)

    I see, that's cool! I don't play nearly as many games as I would like :< I've never really had enough money to afford many games or - more importantly - platforms to play them on. I've only ever had the Nintendo handhelds (sooo lots of Pokemon, the Ace Attorney series and other similar games). I also own a PS2 but not many games for it ... Okami is my absolute favourite! To be honest, it was almost worth getting a PS2 just to play it haha I just really wish I could play the HD version for PS3.
    Never had a decent computer either ... to give you an idea, on my current laptop I have to set Minecraft graphics as low as possible in order to make it run decently lol
    Luckily a majority of my friends play games so sometimes I can borrow their stuff haha a flatmate let me play the Portal series on his computer which I absolutely loved! And I played The Last of Us together with a friend when I visited her. That was loads of fun, too :>
    Another friend of mine is a huge Kingdom Hearts fan and insists on me playing all the games, too, so right before I left for Italy, she gave me her PSP and some games to play while I'm here (she's such a sweetheart) .... I have to admit though, I haven't played them much since I got here. Kingdom Hearts boss fights frustrate me lol
