namenotrequired after I changed my account/username for like the 4th time: Daghrgenzeen, confusing the world since the name change feature! :la:

Äidinkieleni on suomi. And apparently I can speak English pretty fluently! Jag kan också tala lite svenska. Я забыла, как говорить по-русски… Но мне нравится пробовать! まだ日本語を話しません。

Behind the name:
[dʌg-r-gɛntsɛn] - originally randomly produced username, modified with an extra (silent) 'e' due to username availability reasons.
[laʊ-rʌ] - derived from the bay laurel plant, which in the Greco-Roman era was used as a symbol of victory, honor or fame.

Dreamer. Reader. Writer. Picture-taker. Gamer. Escapist. On dA since 2005. Blabbering on #devart since 2006. Rather friendly.

I am currently a student in the University of Jyväskylä, Finland. My major is English (“language expert”, in other words, not aiming to become a teacher), and my minors are Intercultural Communication and Adult Education (aikuiskasvatustiede). I’m aiming to work at an international organization after I graduate, so if you have any tips or other advice, please do share!

I have been in a relationship since 2008 with an amazing, supportive young man. We sometimes have our own ups-and-downs, of course, but life is a roller-coaster… ;P

I love nature, taking walks and cycling and swimming, and I wish to do my best to help protect the ringed seals of Lake Saimaa. :rose:

ohellohara wrote a poem about me. ;w; It's so beautiful. :heart: She's an amazing poet and a person, by the way - her Gallery shouldn't leave you untouched.
daghrgenzeen.she puts rose petals at the ends of her
sentences, planting seeds inside
consonants and trimming her vowels—
her words bloom, a botanical garden
put on display in the air—no glass
could ever contain her flowers; they
are free to be plucked from the sky
and put in people's hair, decorating
otherwise gray minds—her tongue
is the deepest green in the garden,
her voice more refreshing than
water; let her plant you in the clouds

Eyes and Homes

Thu Aug 28, 2014, 9:36 AM

I haven't had my eyes checked in about 3, maybe even 4 years, but today I went to Specsavers. :dummy: And my eyesight has actually IMPROVED. :omfg: This has never happened before... After getting my first glasses in '98, it's been going in minus really feast, almost annually. It's still a lot of minus, about -9 and -8, but yeah it had improved by 0.5 in both eyes. :XD: I choose new 'frames' and I should get them in 2,5-3 weeks, they need to thin them a lot... which is why my glasses has usually cost my mom around 500€, now it was only 310€. :dummy: Wooo!

Today we also went to sign in the new rent contract and paid about half of the rent deposit. We're moving to other side of JKL, Palokka, in a nice 3-bedroom apartment in a row-of-houses, 84 square metres (about 904 square feet) in 4 'floors', with a small backyard, and an electric sauna, and a bathroom near the master bedroom on 3rd 'floor', and a separate toilet on the first; we can have a dining area and a living-room separately, FINALLY. :dummy: It's about a 10 minutes' walk from a store, health care centre, and a bus stop, but that's alright; the area is really nice, lots of nice areas to walk and explore in, forests, lakes... :la: AND A HUGE, BRAND-NEW LIBRARY. :love: I'll explain the 'floors' when we get settled in and get some pictures taken. :nod: The rent is rather expensive, 820€ a month, excluding water and electricity... but M's ready to pay for those expenses while I take care of the other bills. :dummy:

We're starting the moving preparations soon (I'd already start but Mister wants to chillax before going to bed, and he possibly has to visit Tampere tomorrow for work) and we should get the keys in about September 26-27, and by October 1 we try to be settled in there and this apartment'd be empty so we wouldn't have to pay also for October's rent for the current place. :P There's lots to do and find out about (especially about Internet, we have Elisa now and the new place has Sonera's optical fibre, sooooo could be troublesome), and my busiest period is right during the move as well... but it's alright. :dummy: I guess. As long as I get M to do stuff as well, like, throwing away broken, unused things... :paranoid: We are so not taking all this stuff to like, the 5th place or whatnot. Just no. :stare:

We'll stay there for at least a year, and then we'll decide if we stay or not; landlady of course hopes we'll stay there for a long time, but you never know....

Anyway, here's the news for now! :heart::rose:

Experiences about the Kindle App on Windows8(.1)? 

2 deviants said No experiences about it. :shrug:
2 deviants said Kindlewhatnow? :o
2 deviants said Wondering if the app works on a Win8 laptop outside US, for I'm tired of not finding some books I'd need from local libraries...
No deviants said Works perfectly... in the US! :la:
No deviants said Works perfectly... everywhere! :la:
No deviants said Doesn't work. :stare:

:blush: No en mie tiiä, en mitenkään koe olevani opettajalaatua... Ujostuttaa, suorastaan hermostuttaa vieraiden ihmisten edessä... enkä pidä lapsista / itseäni nuoremmista... :paranoid: Mutta kiitos kumminkin. :D
