SOME INFO

The reason I have one 3 in my ratings: I misunderstood the swap's rules and used wrong material in the diy project. So that was not okay to my partner, and I had to re-send something else. She didn't receive my second or third re-sending and don't answer messages anymore. It seems that she was a flaker and her profile is now banned, so I can't change that rating anymore.

ABOUT ME

Alt text

I’m Lilja, 23 years old girl from Finland. Currently I'm living with my boyfriend in Vantaa, near Helsinki, which is the capital of Finland. My name is Lily in English, so you can call me Lilja or Lily, which do you prefer more.

I’m very girly girl when it comes to my style and look. I love wearing dresses, skirts and shorts with tights. I also love ”cat eyes” make up and it fits well with my glasses. I also love everything kawaii and cute stuff when it comes to stationery and other penpal/postcrossing/swapping stuff.

If I had to describe myself, I would say I’m shy and quiet first, but when you get to know me, I can be the one who is always talking. I’m very good listener and very trustful and loyal friend. My friends often come to me with their problems – I’m always there for them, giving advices and solving their problems. I’m also known as a ”dream expert”, who always explains the meanings of dreams to everyone who asks explanations to their weird dreams.

I have complited military service, I was in army July 2014 – March 2015. In Finland military service is mandatory to men and optional to women. Men can also choose non-military service, which means working for a year without getting paid. I applied to special job, multimedia conscript. That was like journalist, photographer, graphic designer and webmaster all together. Then I was also a social media agent, which gives tips, answer to questions and helps new conscripts before and during their service. Of course I also had normal military training, like shooting, marching, living in the woods and sleeping in tents.

I'm studying religion studies in university. When I graduate, I will be Master of Arts (but I think better translation would be Master of Philosophy). I have also written a book, which was published in August 2015. The book is about Finnish Youtubers and I was only hired to write it, so it wasn’t my own idea. I’m still dreaming about writing and publishing my own poem and short story collections some day. As you may already guess, my dream job is an author, journalist and photographer.

Just Because

Thanks for being a part of my group! :D

Wow that is really interesting!! I haven't mastered the cat eye look yet. Philosophy! Interesting! My flatmate last year majored in that, he LOVED it! Religious studies is cool too. I learnt a bit about the Japanese religions a few years ago in a paper I did. It was really interesting!

sabbysteg on Apr 20, 2015:

Hi there, this is a comment for the EASY: Profile Comment #5 swap. I also have the same question as @sakura 15, does everyone have to complete military service in Finland?

I got my university undergraduate degree in Creative Writing. One of my favorite exercises was to go to a cafe and write the dialog someone nearby is saying, word for word, including any filler words like, um, uh, like, etc. It helps you really get an ear for dialog and sometimes helps inspire a new idea! Have an awesome day!

Hi there, I stumbled across your profile as we are both in the profile comment swap. I am not your partner but curiosity made me click your name and I see that we have a bit in common haha. Does everyone in Finland have to do military service? We don't hear much/learn anything about Finland here in New Zealand so I find it internesting. What will you be studying at university? I am studying English literature. Anyway I hope you have a lovely day! From Rebecca
