#METOO

#METOO. You could not miss this hashtag past week. It has been all over social media, and for a reason. I was one of the first ones to add it from my personal circles. It was scary at first. I caught myself wondering.. what will people think? Will people imagine me as a weak person, […]

Stereotype me!

The latest news, Finland presented its’ own national emojis. There is The Sauna, The Unbreakable (Nokia 3310) and The Headbanger emoji.

Talk just to talk

Everyone of us probably knows someone who talks a bit more than others. There are of course the ones that make very good points, make up new discussions, and want to change something in this world by words. And then there are the ones who just talk to talk. Sure, ‘talk-just-to-talk’ persons communicate a lot, […]

Old and new culture of communicating

I was born to a quite late generation, but I also had the privilege to live before Internet and mobile phones. I like the inventions of past times, for example it gives me a possibility to write this blog and share my thoughts all over the world (which earlier would have been quite a tough […]
