I got the official letter from the University of Helsinki, so everything is in order. This really is happening! (: I got tons of other, more or less useful, papers as well. About everything pretty much. Most of the stuff I knew beforehand, but I've still been reading them in excitement (cool to have them in paper-form!).
And I need to tell Åbo Akademi, my current uni, that I won't be starting my studies there this fall. "Yay". Their office isn't open on Fridays and no one picked up the phone. So I will wait until Monday, and will probably go there myself, so I can talk with an actual person. You can only accept one study place each year, and I'm pretty sure I accepted this one last year. I sure hope so, cause otherwise I guess they could make me stay. Or at least not let me enroll in another course. eek! But no, everything will be fine!
And once I do that, I will end the contract for my apartment. Yes, after 2 months. :D But the good news: I got an offer for an apartment in Helsinki!
A room in a 3 person apartment with very reasonable rent, good connections to the center. I'm so happy, cause I never thought I could get a place in time, since Helsinki is so swamped with students! The contract starts September 1st, so I'll spend a few nights at my cousin's before moving.
But I've been looking at course desciriptions and all compulsory courses I have to take. So exciting! There'll be a lot of languages the first year, that much I can say..!HELSINKI, JUST WAIT, HERE I COME!
I've been following the track and field world championships quite a bit the last days. Blanka Vlašić got the gold, which was just awesome. Too bad she still wasn't able to break the world record..
And then today it finally starts; THE sport: javelin throw
. Tero Pitkämäki has a slight fever, but it's reported that he'll throw today anyways. Even if he's not 100 % today, he should be able to get to the final pretty efortlessly. So apart from Pitkämäki, I hope that Antti Ruuskanen, Tero Järvenpää and Teemu Wirkkala will also do good in the qualies.
OK. So I just heard on the news that Tero Pitkämäki is having cramps in his back. Shiiiit.
