    The <off topic> thread

    Thanks guys, I'll try to visit more often! I'm mainly on reddit and facebook these days, but I'm always up for more distractions.

    The <off topic> thread

    Hey guys! Long time no visit. What's up? Some updates: I'm studying travelling and event services now. I'm doing really well — I like my school, I've made tons of new friends, I'm going out with a guy next week (and I have the week off, autumn break). And I'm moving out with a friend who's also vegan and has 2 cats! We found a 2-room apartment in Helsinki with decent rent and it's very close to the city centre.
  3. I remember trying to push our teacher to switch to Paint.NET when I was on a photomanipulation and photo-editing course in 8th grade. We were using Jasc Paint Shop Pro 6 or something, really ancient software that was really nowhere near Paint.NET at the time

    Terry Pratchett - RIP

    I'm in the midst of reading a couple of books I borrowed from a friend, so I've been postponing reading Discworld. Sad to hear about it.

    Happy Valentine's Day

    Still keeping the combo rolling, alone on Valentine's for 21 years! I'm not bitter though; que sera, sera and so on.

    Is it just me, or did anyone else have weird trouble getting to the forum? I haven't been able to log on for ages.

    Rants *enter at own risk*

    *giggles* grease nipples. rant: waking up early on holidays isn't a good idea... with nothing to do (except watching TV and eating), the days seem to go on forever.

    Rants *enter at own risk*

    Thanks for the sentiments, folks. _____ There is a civilian alternative. I think it's a brilliant system, but I don't see why it is mandatory for men only. If it is so great, why not have everyone do it? I disagree with the fact that Åland residents and Jehovah's witnesses are exempted from military and civilian service, as well. I don't want to partake in a system that discriminates, even if the end results were positive in the grand scheme of things. To make a difference, one must protest. In a way, I admire the Finns' adherence to rules and regulations, even if the rules were flawed.

    Rants *enter at own risk*

    I'm in a very practical school, studying sewing and clothing; I can't study it at home really. I've been rethinking my decision, and I think I'll go on with my studies for another month. If the changes I make work out I might not need to quit at all. The risk I mentioned was that the radius of the monitoring device at home is too wide, and when I'm leaving for school, it registers my anklet even though I'm outside the apartment building (when I exit the cellar), and sends an alarm saying I'm leaving too late. At first there were some issues with me coming home to soon, which I'm also not allowed to do. And I didn't really do that, either, I was staying outside the apartment. As much as it pains me to quit cycling to school, I guess there's no other way to avoid further alarms. sigh. I can't really afford to spend money on train tickets. Then again, I can afford even less to spend time in jail and possibly prolong my sentence... I've also supposedly had issues with responding to phone calls (I missed a call twice. Twice!) and not informing the surveillants of changes in schedule; dentist's appointments and the like (I forgot to call them the day before and I apparently let the wrong people know on the day of the appointment). I have one warning and there isn't a second, and there already is a chance that I will have to go to jail. EDIT: I forgot to say, thanks Sozo. I'm halfway through already, almost 100 days done out of 172.

    Rant: I have to quit school in order to avoid going to jail. To elaborate, I'm under house arrest due to objecting to conscription. Faulty devices, unclear instructions –to me at least, I'm not very good at understanding what parts of an instruction are relevant– and unnecessarily aggressive, purposely misunderstanding authorities have put me in a situation where school causes too much of a risk.
