It's the end of the month, so here's a look into outfits I've worn during various Octobers since 2011:

project 365: week forty-three

 295: Spent the feast day of Pope Saint John Paul II by going to the beach, burning this candle and eating cake. I got this candle from my sister and was fairly excited about it. For someone who's not Catholic, I'm strangely into some Catholic things.

how i am not coping with chronic pain

 I was going to say that I haven't been coping well with my chronic pain lately, but that's not exactly true. "Lately" is more or less a year at this point and "coping well" is always relative. Maybe I have never coped well, but the last year has been the hardest since I first got ill and has actually led me to seek more permanent (medical) help for the first time in quite a while. Because although I have seen various people over the past decade and a bit it's often only been a quick check up or revision/refill of prescriptions. And it actually took a semi-casual remark of "what? you're in pain all the time every day - that's not right" from a friend for me to figure out that no, it is not right, I shouldn't have to live this way and I actually deserve to be fully examined and treated (again). Shockingly, I deserve more than the bare minimum in this area of my life, too.

turku day, pt. two

 If you've not seen the first few museums I visited on Turku day, you can find them here. Out of those ones I had been to a couple of the places before, but all of these three in this post I was visiting for the first time. And, honestly, all of these are so good they would be worth revisiting!

everything is yellow

 These autumn colours have been pretty amazing at the moment. If only they lasted even a tiny bit longer! I obviously had to match all the leaves and live a proper yellow moment.

project 365: week forty-one

 281: Starting the week by making soup so I have food for the whole week, haha! Soup is life at the moment.

turku day, pt. one

 About a month ago (16/09) it was Turku day. There were lots of events all around the city, all through the day. But it was my favourite because most of the museums had free entry! So I took the whole day and visited six. And had to divide these into two posts since I took so many pictures.

 Back when I was at my mum's in Lapland I went on a church trip to Ranua and it was a good day.

project 365: week forty

 274: I started the week the right way by going to a museum. This tiny building that I usually walk by when on my way to uni is a hospital museum, and I never knew! It used to be the hospital gatekeeper's house and inside they have exhibition rooms about the oldest hospital in Finland (i.e the one in Turku) and the history of medicine and all that. It was cool.

travelling or not travelling

I just posted a little (unrelated) throwback picture on Instagram saying how a lot of people irl think of me as someone who travels a lot and is constantly somewhere and someplace different. And I do love travelling and exploring new places (as well as revisiting familiar ones). But, honestly, I don't consider myself to travel that much, less than most people around me, really.

project 365: week thirty-nine

 267: I definitely was not rereading this last Monday (I don't think I was doing anything) but both of Rupi Kaur's books are something that I return to from time to time.
