Some thoughts about Ilosaarirock (and Animecon). I had fun in Ilosaari though I knew that meanwhile the Animecon was in full swing. In the end I didn't really think about it at all when I was there, and instead I just had fun, talked with friends and new people and well, had fun, even though it was raining, weather was very chilly and afterwards I was very tired.
There was for example one guy who did card tricks, he changed the card in my hand without touching it O_O There must be some trick behind it, he probably just changed it when he put it on my hand, but yes, that was impressing. :D
...I still wanted to go to Animecon, I hope that Animecon (or Nekocon) will come again at the time I am able to go there next year.
And I watched the whole series of Uraboku, that was good! It wasn't really the kind of anime I thought it would be, fortunately shonen ai was just a kind of extra bonus, not an end in itself. I could describe it more like fantasy anime. Uraboku was really addicting and beautiful, only thing that bothers me it's the end... I am not spoiling ;). But there was some really good pairings and there was real chemistry between characters, which made the series very enjoyable. I think I am going to read the manga too and see the art of it...
Recently I have also been drawing, picking blueberries and baking a lot. I also watched randomly one chinese movie, Riding alone for thousands of miles. That was surprisingly good! Even my mother liked it. :D The main character of the movie was Japanese, so you hear as much Japanese as Chinese! I definitely recommend.

|I found my old watercolour pencils and wanted to try them. I found also a piece of watercolour paper and draw this simple picture using normal brown coloured pencil, and then colored it with the watercolour pencils...|
|... used water and this is how it became! The whole atmosphere of the picture changed :D|

Tomorrow I'm going to go the Retretti Art Center (one of the largest art centers in the Nordic Countries)!
Now I'm going to put some laundry to dry,
