Hello from London!

I've now been here almost three weeks but it feels so much longer. A lot has happened in this time and I have met so many new people and already learned a punch of stuff. Two weeks ago I moved into my own tiny place, which is in a student house. 

I have spent my time here mainly studying. Days are long and full but I feel so lucky to be able to learn in such a good environment.

School started with an induction which took couple of days and on the first Friday all the new students were traditionally given a fun task which I won't go much more in detail with because I don't want to spoil it for any of the future students.

By the end of the day all the students of the school gathered to a studio where all the different courses were introduced. The school is a quite small community and I was surprised how we all fit in that one studio.

As I am an acting foundation student, it was fun to meet people from different courses from different years. After the day was done the whole school went out for drinks. I loved how we had a chance to chat with everyone before the actual classes started. So when I pump into people, for example a second year BA student during lunch, I already feel like I know them a little bit. Everyone I have talked to have such interesting stories of how they have found their way to study at RADA.

I am now done with my first two to full weeks of studying. I have been quite tired but I have also had time to relax with my school mates. It's fun to explore this culture and hang out in pubs.

I feel like I haven't quite settled down in London yet since I still have to find some basic stuff for my home but I'm taking it easy. 

Kisses!

Life update

Couple of weeks ago I posted on my Facebook and Instagram accounts about what happened in my life during this summer.

Two amazing things came true when in one week, at the end on June and in the beginning of July, I got offered a recording contract with Sony Music Finland and also a place to study on Acting foundation at RADA, London! I was overwhelmed and so happy and I'm glad I don't have to keep this as a secret anymore.

Last couple of weeks have been crazy busy for me. Last week I spent lots of time at a studio working on my music and meeting new people. At the same time I packed all my stuff and moved it to my parents place and then there figured out what I needed to take with me to London.

I arrived to here yesterday. I will move in to my own place on Saturday. Until then I'm staying in a hotel. School starts tomorrow and I am so excited. I don't think the reality of it has really sank in for me yet but I know that I'm going to take all out of this upcoming period of my life and enjoy.

Kisses and good night!
