Entrepreneur + summer vacation = error?

Finland is in summer holiday mode and the weather couldn’t be any better: sunshine and the temperature in the 60s to 70s. The sun gives me such an awesome boost of energy, I love it! Summer vacation and other traditional holidays are something I can’t really relate to. In a way I’m quite bummed about it, because it would be...

Oisa - Elämäni sisältöä - Arki ja inspiraatio

Ordinary life moved in, did inspiration move out?

There is a specific word in Finnish that describes all the things in ordinary life. It’s called arki. It’s all the balls of dust that formed in the corners of your home since your last weekly cleaning, all the everyday meals made in a rush and the dog walks that get on your nerves, because the dog refuses to move....

How does it feel to be back in Finland?

The answer to the question in the title: weird! My first real dose of culture shock hit me only half an hour after landing in Helsinki, when I realized that I had a hard time getting Finnish words out of my mouth. Despite writing a lot in Finnish during my trip, I had not had an actual conversation with anyone...

Goodbye New York

I can still remember how excited I was a month ago: the trip of a lifetime just starting, full of inspiration and excitement. My destination was New York City - the city of dreams. And as much as I wanted time to freeze, this month passed along just like the rest of them. It felt like six months, but at...

What has my month abroad taught me?

Today I started my last week in New York. The first two weeks felt like six months, while the past week seemed to fly by in a day. I wish I could stop time for a little bit. This trip has been a lifechanging adventure and I don’t want it to be over just yet. I’ve learnt so much about...

A jujutsu experience I will never forget

You know that feeling when you meet someone new and things just start to happen? That happened to us Friday night when we were spending the evening with Emily’s friends. We headed for Prospect Park after work and when it got dark, decided to continue the evening at Emily’s friend’s apartment in Brooklyn. A friend of the host’s, which nobody...

Oisa - Elämäni sisältöä - Kuinka kirja edistyy?

How is my book coming along?

I’ve explored the streets of New York, swum in the ocean and ran around from one event to the next. I’ve seen and experienced so much during these past two weeks. I’ve learned a lot about myself and had time to think about my life. That’s why many of you have started wondering: how’s that book coming along? I’ve received...

Oisa - Elämäni sisältöä - Läksiäisiä ja Long Island

Farewell parties and a fun day in Long Island

My friend has a very active life as I expected she would living in New York. I’ve gotten the chance to attend some interesting events with her. One of these events was in Brooklyn at a restaurant/venue called Filament at the Landing. We were celebrating the goodbye party of Emily’s boss. The venue was stunning: three walls with huge windows letting...

Oisa - Elämäni sisältöä - Ihanan vihreä NYC

Green green grass of NYC

Before I came to New York, I had an image that there were a lot of buildings, people and concrete. For some reason I thought there would be only a few park areas, but other than those, the color green would not be found in the city. Oh boy, was I wrong! There’s green everywhere here, in complete harmony with...

Street art on a Sunday stroll and Times Square

We had planned to spend the first Sunday at home, just chilling and relaxing, but the day was so nice that we decided to go run some errands and walk around for a bit. We ended up exploring Harlem and its surroundings for a few hours. During this walk I noticed all the beautiful street art that’s everywhere. There are...
