Ice Sculptures, Jelgava.

I know I promised to put pictures of these sculptures here, but I hadn't time after I copied them to my computer, so I'll do it now. I'm one of those persons who can walk around them, taking photos of each sculpture several times xD So I'll try to find the best ones.

Just living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.

Now I feel really messed up. I want to sleep very much, cause I can't wake up at 7 a.m. every morning and feel normally, and also I started to think about different things [that I should forgot!] again. It's ok when I'm at university, cause there are lots of friends, and also teachers always say something funny, because biologists are not like everybody else, but when I'm at home alone... I know I maybe shouldn't write this here, but probably it'll help me. Yesterday I had biology laboratory works with algae, and almost all 6 hours when I was drawing something and looking at different algae in microscope, I only thought about last years May. Every word said by others made me remember all this stuff. Evening in a park, lots of mosquitoes, and just me & him. Yeah, I didn't like this evening then, friends laughed at me when I ran to them not even saying goodbye to him *it was so funny, I guess, that I even smiled now*, because he really wasn't the person I liked, but now when I remember... I became f*cking ironic after this, and yesterday I realised that I'm evil and I simply can break up with everyone only because of my love to freedom and my hate to everyone who tries to steal this freedom of me, even if only wishing me all the best... Life is f*cking stupid, people, and I don't want all this to change. And this Monday was the stupidest day this year [St.Valentine's day, f*ck yeah, `great` celebration, I hate it for 7 years now].
Ok, I'll shut up a bit and stop talking about these things, but sorry if my further post will be pessimistic and without any smilies.
On Saturday I went to exhibition center in Kipsala, cause there was international tourism exhibition - people from different countries [and also cities of Latvia] came there to represent them. And there I met my guide with who I went to Russia in 2008 :) He also offered to go with him to Russia again this year, hope I'll a have a chance to go to. And also there was a woman with siberian huskies, and everyone could try riding sledges with them. It was just for a few meters, but it's my dream to ride on dog-sledge, so I also tried it :)
Also after [and before] this, I took some pics of Riga.
And on Sunday I went to Jelgava to see ice sculptures. Spent there almost 5 hours, and it was below -20°C, felt like a penguin *photos I'll put in a next post, cause there still aren't in my computer* And now it's also really cold, by the way, but it's sunny [all 3 days of this week I saw sunrise while driving to university] and I love weather like this, no matter the others say.
Yeah, and yesterday my mom & dad had their 21st *I guess* wedding anniversary. So dad bought a bottle of Martini Asti, which I love very much, and I also bought two cans with coctails of Koskenkorva vodka [it's vodka from Finland, if you don't know]. I had to learn Earth science and draw contour lines [isolines], but at the end I got drunk again and I really don't know what I draw there, must check today!
So - I'll get pics from my camera to computer, and new post coming soon.

In every life you have some trouble, but when you worry you make it double, SO DON'T WORRY, BE HAPPY! ^^

I don't know it's good or not, but I'm not dead, I'm here, just second half of study year began, so I have no time to write here very often. But I'll try to do it on Fridays, cause I have lectures only till 12:00 and then I'm free :) Today's post is gonna be really long, cause I have very much photos to show you, and I'm also in a good mood, cause it's snowing again and I'm listening to World Rally Radio - first this year's rally in Sweden began! :) And also winter F1 testing in Jerez - I love this years cars, only I'm sad that Kubica won't drive this year - if you don't know, he had a terrible crash on 6th of February ://
So, I really don't know what to start with. Maybe about school. I don't know why, but we have so many lectures in a week [although credit points are the same]! At least we have no chemistry or physics, just math, Earth science and anatomy (and, of course, English & biology). And I really like this! I never liked learning, but now I just can't complain about anything - at maths we'll have 7 `tests` which we can do at home and we won't have any exam; Earth science compared to physics is interesting and we'll also go somewhere in nature; and in anatomy we have fantastic teacher, and also we'll finish laboratory works till May, so then we'll be free [same with biology, yay!]. And also some pictures - first three are at biology laboratory works on Tuesday with mushrooms, last is on Monday at Earth science, and the fourth one is today at maths, lol xD
And last weekend I was in Tallinn :) I went there on Friday night (at 2 a.m.) and returned back home at 6 a.m. on Sunday. It was really great, although I was totally exausted - 2 nights on a bus with no sleep, and also 18 hours non-stop walking around the city! I think I won't tell much about this weekend, just post here some photos :) And don't look on my clothes, I know I look like a fool, it just was wet, so I wore my rubber boots, and also it was cold at night, so I'm with hat & hood!
It's already at the evening, lots of people around...
Town Hall Square.
Freedom Square in the morning.
Me with lots of swans :) It was near ferry port at the morning, I wanted to go to Finland again, but mom called me and didn't let me go xD
Gates to the city :)
It's Finland somewhere behind me far, far away (approx. 80 km) :))
Me on stairs leading to viewing area at the top of Fat Margaret's Tower (yeah, I hate it's name - why it's my name and why it's fat? xD)
Inside museum.
It's me at the top of the tower!
Another gates to the city...
Alexander Nevsky's Cathedral.
Pigeons :D
View of the city :)
Pigeon :)
Me & sculpture of chimney sweep :)
Ice sculptures on the Freedom Square - there were 12 sculptures of animals, which are symbols of 12 years :)
I also have lots of other great pictures, but I think if you want to see some more, you just can google it ;)
And also a photo of today's weather - I took it with my mobile phone, so quality is not good, but you can see lots of snow everywhere :)
Hope you'll like this post :) Maybe later I'll post here something else, but now I want to go and finally watch GP2 Asia race at Abu Dhabi - it's really interesting, I love these young drivers for their aggressive style & lots of mistakes & trying to overtake, and also it reminds me of 14th November when Seb became world champion in F1 :) The only thing is that I feel really old when watching this, cause some drivers there are the same years old as me! xD
Bye for now, people, enjoy Friday :))
