The snow... it's melting!!


Yes. It's really finally happening.
Aaand I hate it.
Or well not the melting part. That's awesome because less snow = more happy for Kelly
But rather the everything-is-covered-in-water part.
Let's start off with school, shall we?
Getting there is quite the gamble. Best case scenario you get there with wet feet and clothes because cars really don't bother slowing down when passing by you. Who cares that you're only 10cm away?
Worst case scenario you end up in the hospital because one of those aforementioned cars drove over you.
Then you get to school, have to take the long way in because the backdoor is closed for some silly reason like ginormous amounts of snow falling off the roof or something.
And then you get to the basement where our lockers are and the floor there has a good 2 cm of water, happily sloshing away at our feet. just lovely.
And then, when I finally get back home, our driveway has turned into a death trap.

See that? That's 13 meters of pure ice, covered in water. A broken bone just waiting to happen.
But if it continues to melt at this rate (and I sure as hell hope it is) I might just get through this winter without having to go skiing atall! WOO!!!
Which brings me to my next point.
Olympiads. Ohdearlord.
Sobasically I won Chem's school wide thing, right? And going to the county-wide thing. Which is this weekend (OMFGFSKJFRIGJFKG)
And I'm pretty sure I'll fail miserably but whatever.
Then when that's done, on 4th of February (wtf, when did february get so close?) I hae the Ühiskonnaõpetuse crap. I don't even know why I signed up for that...
Then at some point in february is Biology county. And then English.
Which to come to think of it, should conclude my olympiads butstill.
Also my schedule is crazy.
Today I had 8 lessons, ÜKO thing and then Chem. Tomorrow I'll have eight lessons (double maths and estonian, eugh.) test on Ekke Moor which I still havent finished and probably never will, more chem and after school I have to write a bloody speech for estonian.
thankfully though, on friday I have sweet freedom.
Also I love it how I just turned page on my dayplanner and the first thing to catch my eye is the new ncis episode on tuesday, called "freedom". Amazing.


Of course, not everything about winter is bad. Most of it is, but there's still that 1% of pretty.
So have a bunch of pretty pictures, if you will.

Yeeeeaaah.. good times.


So one day mom just decided that ohai, let's make some candy by dunking almonds and dried peaches and stuff into melted chocolate and now I feel obligated to share some pictures from that particular chocolatey perfectness

You're welcome.




Yes that is a doll dress, yes I actually put it on her, yes I payed for it with the skin on my hands.

Also I finally got the video up even though it sucks so much that it's basically just a waste of cyberspace but whatever.

and I know that the background music is reallyreallyweird but I just needed to get rid of the background noise which is basically me laughing really loud and cooing at ella and nobody needs to hear that, so I used the youtubes audioswap thing and since I'm lazy didn't really bother to actually find some normal music. Soyeah you get the idea anyway.
Also I swear it was daytime.


Oh and just to save you the trouble:
look at the pretty pictures instead.


  1. TL; Still Read.

    First thought - Ella's look is /so/ appropriate for this picture. You can't get more tortured than that.

    As for the snow thing - enough with the great meltdown already! In case you haven't heard, Tartu isn't flat. We here are in the habit of climbing Riiamägi pretty often. Do you have /any/ idea what a hazard it is right now? It's mainly like clinging to walls and dragging yourself upwards, because your feet have NOTHING WHATSOEVER beneath them for support. Just clean wet ice. You can't even "skate" it, because the slope is not an easy one. 'tis a mission impossible, truly. I won't go on on this subject u_u

    && the chocolatey stuff? *drools*

  2. Wait till you see the vid XD

    Yeah and so it's in everybodys best interest to get that snow out of there as fast as weatherly possible.

    ikr 8D

  3. *is waiting*

    Yeah, I'd like that, too, but at the current rate we'll just get wet feet and broken bones in between two snows. Since it'll snow more anyway, I'd prefer to limit the year to one major melt.

  4. Well apparently that ain't happenen seeing as the damn camera I took it with is total crap and I should be lucky that the pictures were at least more or less fine. I'll upload those in a minute.
    Unless, ofcourse you want to hear me laughing hysterically and watch a completely dark screen for 49 seconds :D

    psh. I'd prefer the melt now and not come back until next winter and preferrably not even then option.

  5. Some day that cat will kill you in your sleep u_u

    Apparently some scientist said we're entering a mini ice age that'll peak in 2015 and that's why we're getting all this snow lately. If he's right, we're all screwed. I for sure couldn't handle 10 such winters in a row.

  6. Don't I know it...

    Yeah I heard that too, Estonia was supposed to be covered in ... igikelts... soon enough again. As soon as I finish university, I'm so outta here .. o_o

  7. Lol, permafrost, whatever. That's what media does with things. Nope, the dude said nothing about permafrost or polar bears, just cold snowy winters and cool-ish summers for the next decade or two. Which is lovely enough in itself, yup, but nothing too dramatic.

  8. WHAT?!!?!?!
