And now I'm stuck here
Okay, a quick recap of today's events.
I woke up at 6 a.m. and walked to the bus station. Markus was already there. Markus and I were probably the only ones under 30 on the bus. The others were older and members of Vasemmistonaiset. We were in Helsinki mainly for the "Globalisaatio & Sukupuoli" event. It was Markus who lured me into this. In fact, the main seminar is to be held tomorrow, but there were other reasons why I was here. First, I met up with Lotta. She didn't have much time for me, but I was prepared. The anti-war demonstration started at Järnvägstorget at 3 o' clock. I must say, I felt a bit out of place and most of all a bit indecisive about the whole issue. All these naive slogans just made me tired. I'm not cynical at all, but I just could get along. But still, I walked there in the line, although blushing and very insecure.
I slept for maybe four and a half hour when I got back to Lotta's apartment. She went to a party and I stayed in, watching parts of “Return of the Jedi“ and “Cruel Intentions 2“.
