Tomorrow should be the day we finally get to practicing MXII songs again. I’ve started writing a new song for the band, too.. well, basically just one cool riff. Creativity is slower than ever these days.

Work has become routine again. Some days are easy and other days make me wanna quit, but I guess every job is like that.

I visited the amusement park Linnanmäki a week ago. It was the most fun I’ve had in a long time. The first ride almost made me pass out, but it feels as if I slowly built a tolerance for the speed and the spinning. I think I tried all the awesome rides, including Ukko, which was a great adrenaline rush. To be at a height of 50+ (?) metres upside-down and survive the experience was pretty damn fun. I even tried TopSpin (called Kieppi these days, I think), which I never had the guts to try before: it was a small victory in my life.

Endless Days

Not a lot of free time lately. I can’t complain, since I’ve brought this on myself. I’m thinking about getting into university, but can’t really find anything that interests me. Maybe I should browse the websites of universities more thoroughly..
Might be getting an ear infection, the first time in ages, it feels like.
Band stuff is slowly progressing. Sent a few emails to potential bass players.. If only we’d get a proper line up, we could start practicing new songs and try to get gigs..

And oh.. I hate shit. Literally.


Back to Business

I’m back at the ol’ grind. Work’s okay, but getting up in the morning has been a real struggle. It’s good to have routines, but I’m gonna miss all my spare time.

We played the second wedding gig on the weekend and it was a blast! We started at about midnight and played until two in the night. Yesterday we went back to the rehearsal room and jammed some Kyuss, after we got everything set up again. There’s no clear direction for the band stuff now, but I’m sure we’ll think of something..


We switched to another rehearsal room yesterday in Tapiola. The new one is a bit smaller, but entirely ours..  bwahahaha. Last Saturday we played the first wedding gig of this summer and it was pretty cool! Had a good time and strangely enough didn’t feel nervous at all. I did manage to break the D string during Tinakenkätyttö prompting a 5 min break, which in hindsight was a very welcome break.

I think I’ve got some stomach disease which I contracted from Petra/Elli, but the other possibility is that the spicy Chinese food I ate yesterday is not on good terms with my stomach and intestines. Hopefully, I won’t have to go through a similar ordeal as the one in December.
