Yesterday (17.07.2014) I chanced to repay of being an aunt, and that is how it started. Since my sister got married, my mom has had an unruly wish to set up a photo session for our family. And now, when my sister has already had 2 daughters and I've almost-almost left the island (I only have to wait till the end of summer, is it much?), our dear mother turned out to have found a professional photographer among her patients' parents (my mom is an osteopath for babies). So mother asked me to be nice and have a walk with my sister's family and the photographer in the park. OKAY. But lately my mood has been a bastard, so I wasn't too excited about all that and didn't expect something outstanding. So I was right and this is how it all was, the camera-girl took lots of photos of my little nieces (BTW, the eldest one just turned 5 on 16.07.2014, so it was kinda a Birthday present), and even I'm gonna have a couple of my own pictures. Then the photographer could breath easily for a couple of hours, and we ourselves moved to entertain the children. But I wasn't left behind, so even I had a chance to test two attractions, though I was a bit old for them.

A bombastic photo like I know how to do a pro model face
Nah, I didn't ride it, but I just like such kind of attractions,
they're really stylish
Yeah, here I go with the elder niece
After riding everything the girls wanted ("Let me see you ride ride ride"), my sister offered to eat, so we headed (thankfully, by car) to another part of the city in the mall to feed ourselves. Actually, if I were them (my family's sister and the sister herself) I wouldn't have gone that far, there were plenty of little coffee-shops around; but they, people from tiny village, definitely found something exciting about the mall.
But it's not the end. On eating at the food court, we were off home to prepare a festive dinner in honor to the elder niece's Birthday and also to prepare ourselves to another photo set. That camera-girl had to come to our place to take pictures of all-all of us, I mean including my mom and dad. It was so quickly, I couldn't even name it a photo session! Well, I also can't say we all were too stirring about taking the photos: men just didn't like taking photos of themselves generally, I was posing like I was a modest girl (with the hair half red, yeah); only my mama and sister seemed to wish to take as many photos as possible. Anyway, I was glad there was such kind an even in our family life, it was a fascinating experience. Now we have to wait till the camera-girl edits our photos, so I'll be able to change my profile picture!:D *Internet-victim*
Talking about my abilities of the aunt, so here I'm not that good as I am at singing or English, for example. I've never wanted to spend a lot of time with the nieces; actually, I don't get along with little children in general, they freak me out. Even when I feel like being a cute auntie another time, all my wishes end up with me not understanding what to do, how to entertain the girls, what they want, what they need, what the hell is happening???! So all I can do as an aunt is to turn on some cartoons, give the children some papers and pencils and get away ASAP. Maybe, my maternal instinct hasn't just woken up yet? At least, according to my recent tweet: "I know I'm a bad aunt, but I may be a good role model, may not I? #selfish" I may not show my 'love' to my nieces, but it's important for me to be a decent model for them, I want them to be proud of me, their aunt. When I grow up, I want them to point on my photo and say enthusiastically  "That's my aunt!" And when I come to my nieces, I want them to ask me to tell another story of my travels and works; I want to teach them how to tell 'hello' in Japanese and 'goodbye' in Italian; I want to show them life is more then a village by the sea shore. I want to prove myself I'm worth being an aunt. But now I understand it's just not my time yet.

Be brave to be a part of your family

An End To Start

Well, hello there, y'all! I haven't written for 'a while', might even have already forgotten how to type. You know, I've had so many things I would fill a book in with all that sht, but at the same time 'all that sht' made me feel exhausted like I'd been working in the deepest mines of hell and Satan never paid me. But I won't overwhelm you with the details and will try to trigger only the most interesting things in my mind about how I finished on of the most important parts of my life and am ready to start a new one. So, here I go.

Exams' Results. The Chorus Is Over. Dangerous Party

When the friends are gone,
When the party's over,
We will still belong to each other.
Shakira, "Underneath You Clothes"

My friends and I count the days till new results coming. So lately we received our results for the Russian examination, and I gained 87 points of 100. You can't deny, it's such a good result, but I was... frustrated. I was disappointed, because I'd aimed at the score over 90, therefore certainly I flipped out on getting something less than would-be-my 90. But anyhow my mind understands 87 is a proper thing, so now I'm not so annoyed with my frustration. BTW, my friend and OTR Ilya got a perfect result, all 100 of 100 points for Russian. My congratulations to him, though I've already told him I think it's a matter of luck, so he was lucky enough to get his excellent variant of the test... As well as this luck worked for me during the English test! Well, I didn't get 100 points, but I got... 93! The results were announced only this morning, so you get the latest information :). Coming back to the talk about the results, I must remind you that I overslept the day of the English examination and hardly got there on time! Mom said, I should've overslept for every exam LOL. And what about Ilya, he received 85, that's why I said I was lucky that time. Our examinations in the form of the tests are a big lottery, you never know for sure what you get. So, this morning is the best morning of the month let it be 'week', because I still have to wait for the math result. But on getting the English results I already can forethink if I will enter the university of my dream. And yes, there are educational programmes suitable for my final score (253) and for my decisions about what I wanna do in the future. According to my mom again, now we'll shiver till the math results, than we'll shiver until official entering the university. Will I ever keep calm and carry on?
The next part of my post is that I ended up with attending my chorus. I can't say that it was sentimental and I was sad to leave it. Hell no, I'm done, you - fuck, I'll finally live my new own life. I told you, I'd been dragged in the chorus, because its header had been my teacher in my music school. So I couldn't say no; it was a nightmare in the beginning and a routine in the end. Sometimes attending the chorus was really cool, especially when we had parties, trips abroad and when I was paid money. I found new friends there also and didn't stop singing, thank them for it.
But the biggest thing of this week is a superb party in da house that has just finished. On 12.06 my parents went to visit my sister in another town, and I told them I'd bring my friend Dasha for the night. We ended up drinking vodka with Sprite with about 11 people floating around my flat. Well, it wasn't accidentally, Dasha and I had planned the party beforehand, though we didn't know my flat would be free for all of us to party there. And so we drank. Moreover, we played Twister (right now I hate it, I feel the most painful pain (I remember this expression of mine, beotches) within my body), and I played it as I do - the hardcore mode. But the most hardcore mode was when our friend Kostya decided to take revenge on me... at 8 a.m. Of course, I gave up in 3 minutes, because my arms and legs couldn't hold me for long! Also, my mom always teaches me not to compete with the men (but I always do). What about the party, so we had a couple of walks to the shop during the night, it was so funny. Just imagine, you come to a shop at 2:30 a.m.(!) to buy a bottle of Sprite, some pasta and a chewing gum. WHT?! But "that's just how we do". Also, that night we were a real trouble for my neighbors, though I don't think we were that loud. Different neighbors twice came to my flat complaining that we were partying too hard and should wrap that sht up. Now I can't believe that at my birthday party we were quieter and didn't disturb the neighbors (that night they didn't come up to our place). Anyhow, thanks to God, the police or something wasn't called. Well, in my opinion, it all boils down to thin old walls causing great acoustic transmission. When there's no sound resource in my flat, I can listen to the music at my neighbors' place. But coming the neighbors complaining, doesn't it prove the awesomeness of our party?

My cat liked our guest
How we went out at 2:30 p.m.
Night shop walker. Look into these drunk eyes!

My friend didn't give a thang
where to lie down
My cat had fun too
BTW, at the first Twister game I was so close to tear a nail off my right thumb! I just wasn't careful enough how to place my hand, so I even had to cool my thumb down not to let it bleed. Extremely hardcore!
By the morning of 13.06 the half of the gang had gone home or anywhere else, we tried to sleep, went to the shop, had the Twister revenge and more and more... Of course, almost all of us felt the baddest because of the hangover, moreover I've already written about the pain after the Twister. Ah, when I understood it was the hangover, I started singing "Hungover" by my favourite band "3Oh!3". How come I can remember songs and their lyrics even being deeply drunk and than hungover?

Wake up 9 – maybe 10
Depending how my head is feeling
Every step that I take is rattling the ceiling
Take a breath - brush my teeth
Smell like death – even bleach can’t erase the taste of last night
I got holes in my clothes
Someone’s sweatshirt – who knows what I did…

When you came over
I shoulda stayed sober
And then I got the cold shoulder
Now you know you’re the reason every time I feel hungover

Please don’t call – please don’t text
Because my phone is dead anyways
Shut the shades – close the door
And I’ll see you in a couple days
Did we kiss, did we fight?
There’s a bit of the night that I might not remember
There’s a burn on my coat
Cigarettes on my throat
I don’t know what we did

When you came over
I shoulda stayed sober
And then I got the cold shoulder
Now you know you’re the reason every time I feel hungover

Now my wallet is gone
Find missed calls on my phone
Now my exes all know that I’m lonely
Woke up with a tattoo
It looks bad but that’s cool
Cuase it reminds me of the shit that we did

When you came over
I shoulda stayed sober
And then I got the cold shoulder
Now you know you’re the reason every time I feel hungover

Well, it wasn't the end. In the afternoon I called my parents to find out they were to stay at my sister's place for another night! It meant Dasha could take another sleepover with me, and so that's what she did. We did some chores and then kicked back to watch the gorgeous "Maleficent"... in the pirate quality LOL. The movie was fine, really beautiful, Angelina was the chicest, but the talk is not about it. So, during the film we were joined by Kostya, and then... the electricity was shut off. You'll know why below, and while we were out of the Internet, we played cards and did absolutely nothing, just lied around without even saying a word. When the electricity was back, we watched a couple of films, drank some cups of tea (on typing this word the electricity was shut off again, FU!) and went to bed the sofa. Remember, we hadn't slept the night before, so there's no surprise why we had a sleepy after-party and didn't prevent ourselves from sleeping during this night. And when we woke up today, everything was also pretty prosaic. Well, I was woken up by my dad's call, then Kostya told the English (and physics for Kostya) results had been announced, so we all couldn't sleep after knowing it. Kostya cooked our breakfast, we made my flat, and that was done. The only loss of my party is a glass broken at the first night. Well, it was my dad's favourite one, so I turned our to be tricky enough to make up a story how I had broken it OOPS. Fortunately, after coming home my parents believed my words, and that glass was outshone by my breaking news about the exam's result. Here comes the part where I feel like telling you why our electricity was shut off. The whole week we've been having the worst weather for "hot summer nights" and days as well. It's been raining, "but there ain't no stopping, 'cause it's you and me against the world", the sky is so grey and gloomy, strong wind, so the only point to go out seem to be buying a bottle of Sprite, some pasta and a chewing gum. Time to time the weather become tired and slow it down, but sometimes it rises up and you'd better get our of its way! That's what I can see out of my windows:

OMG Are those cars all identical?? O_O

Well, this is it. I leave you with all this burden and one more song I run int recently. It's another hit by famous Psy featuring unbelievable Snoop Dog. I couldn't leave you without this song because it's called... "Hangover". 

Be brave to get over the hangover

P.S. I like this rhyming expression!
P.P.S. To my mind, "Hangover" is the most adequate thing by Psy IMHO.

Drunk On Literature. Dog Show.

So, the first exam's results arrived! And I... got 73 points of 100! That's an awesome result for me, because I'd had no idea what score I approximately would get. And 73 is a real achievement for me. Actually, I don't worry about the results, I'm interested in knowing them. Oh, but I worry about the math, yeah, here I do.
And past Saturday my friend Lera from the chorus (we lived together during the Japanese work) invited me to celebrate my first result in the country. She took me out to the place called called the Warm Lakes, and we were accompanied by her friends. I'm so thankful for her invitation, because I finally got myself away from my laptop and out of our city to meet the nature, though I'm not a huge fan of the countryside. Boys grilled some meat, Lera and I drank some champagne, so everything was alright! Then guys decided to go swimming in the actually-not-so-Warm Lakes. Well, maybe I would join them too, but my nature don't allow me swimming once a month. All in all the trip was nice, thanks to Lera for making that day. Yeah, on the photo below you can see that Lera and I stained each other with the cinder:D

The next day, 8th of June, Dasha got me to a local dog show. She asked me to join her, because her aunt showed her dog there as well, her dag was a Boerboel, the only one on the show. Weeeeeeell, I wouldn't say I was too excited about the dog show. We had to wait for a long time, it was so amazingly stinky around, and you was able to see clouds of dog fur flying in the air! But anyhow it was nice watching the best dogs of our island. And a cute chow chow became the best dog of the show.

Those dogs seemed to be having a date over there
I adore the Pomeranians
This monster was called Hamster. HAMSTER!!
This awesome Samoyed jumped
on me this way too ^O^ 
See the size, they were so huge!

The winner of them all
So, that's how I spent my weekend. Was yours nice? Approximately on June, 11th we'll receive the results for our Russian test, so I can't help longing for them. So it turns out to be the only thing for me to do now - just wait.
The song of the day today will be a funny disco song "Rise Up" by the Greek Eurovision 2014 participants Freaky Fortune feat. Riskykidd. Come on and rise up!

Be brave!

It's been a while for the news to gain, so I have much to write about!
Firstly, on Monday I had my English exam. And it was such an adventure! Yes! There was nothing to do with the exam itself, but it's all about how I got to the place. Here's how it should've been. We all had to meet at our own school at 8:30 a.m. and then together head to another school where the exam was to be held. At about 9:45 a.m. we would enter the 'venue' and do everything we had to there. But there wasn't any 'we'. There was me who opened her eyes in the morning and saw the time: 9:53. SEVEN MINUTES TO THE START OF FILLING THE BLANKS IN. HELL NO. I'm not the person to be late, but when I oversleep, the nature always saves my ass mentally waking me up in perfect time for me to put the first things I pick on and get to the place I need right on time. And so this time those 7 minutes were enough to get dressed up and fly to the place of writing the examination. Well, I wasn't perfectly on time, but at the same time I wasn't late - the exam itself officially starts after filling in the blanks, and I though on my coming other pupils wouldn't be writing down their information in the blanks. But when I got to the venue, they hadn't even started yet! So I was a superhero of the day! Well, my description might seem complicated, so just get though what a lucky person I am. The exam for English was fine, not so tough, but still there were a few tasks to think. I wrote everything, while some of my friends didn't have time to write the last task - an essay.
On Tuesday, as I mentioned, I was given a mayor prize. There were only 25 senior students, the best ones of the whole city. Well, the best 24 and me AHAHA. Anyhow I got my money ("Money on my mind, money-money on my mind"), though I hoped the sum would be bigger. But thanks for that too! I've already started spending it for... food. And flowers, I've bought a bouquet for mom! And here's some photos from the event:

All the winners and our acting mayor in the center.
Almost there
So, our [wait a bit and he'll be a true] mayor and me
with antenna hair 
From left to right: my class master, me as diva appearance,
the acting mayor and my classmate (with whom I dance
every school stuff). Somehow I'm in love with this photo
In the beginning of Wednesday I worked hard trying to stuff all necessary math information into my clear head, but in the end of it I partied hard with my chorus headers, friends and one special friend who chanced to drop in on Sakhalin, but only for one (!) evening. And that friend is Nakai-san, who was the curator of our band during the Japanese trip in July-August, 2014. I had been called to the party before, but I though I'd better prepare for the up-coming math exam, the last and hardest, so I refused. But then I decided not to overwhelm my mind and instead of it get some rest with good people. So we spent some time, the vibe was awesome, and I was happy to see Nakai-san for the first time since last September. I strongly hope to see him and other Japanese friends ever again.

So, thanks to Nakai-san himself for this photos of us
all together :)
And today... Todaaaay... TOODAAAY!!! Today I've written my last and most nervous examination - for freaking mathematics! MATH IS HELL, BUT NOW IT'S OVER! I'm ready to write all the paragraph with the Caps Lock button on. I didn't oversleep in the morning, everything was fine about the preparation. The exam itself was... err... I don't feel like describing that sht, the only thing I want to say is that I'm deeply hoping to gain 60 points (of 100, of course) to prove I'm an excellent student. And now, when ALL MY FINAL STATE EXAMS ARE OVER, all I have to do is to wait for the results. Ah, and watch series all nights long, certainly. The first results - for the literature - are about to come soon enough (perfectly tomorrow), so I'm awaiting my first shock.
My mom will come back from Moscow tomorrow morning. I can't help waiting for her! And it's not because I wait for the presents, but because I've been really missing her. You see, she left me right during final exams, when I needed her support like never before. Well, she texted me cheerful words before each exam, called me after them, but it would have been definitely much finer, if I could see her by my side, if she wished me amazing luck in the morning and I told her about everything in the evening without thinking of a call's cost. But I handled it, and so tomorrow she'll come and we'll live happily ever after. Well, until I move out of here. Sure sure, in the university I'll have more difficult things than final school exams, but now (at least, according to the law) I'm still a child needing mother's help.
Aaaaaaaand the song of the day will be a nice and calm song "Long Drive" by Jason Mraz. Everything's as just I like. Though it reminds of "The A Team" by Ed Sheeran a bit, doesn't it? But it doesn't spoil "Long Drive" at all.

Long drive, long night
The best night of my life, 
With you riding, your hand on my hand. 
The thought of arriving, kind of feels like, dying.
I don’t want, to go home and be, alone.
Could we, stay out?
Could you, drive a little slower, don’t matter where we’re going,
As long as I’m with you, we could take the long way.
Chevy Nova, front seat, sofa, getting closer, to you.
Drive a little slower; don’t matter where we’re going, 
As long as I’m with you, we could take the long way.
Drive a little slower, not ready to go home,
I’d rather stay with you.
We could take the long way, to the country out of town.
Let’s get lost; I don’t wanna be found.
Let’s get away, now and be careful not to crash.
There’s no defrost and we’re steaming the glass.
You and the road have a generous shoulder
We can pull over and say we took the long way.
Headlights, not strobe lights,
I can see you, but not quite. 
I can feel you inside; the timing is just right.
For the moment, I don’t want to go home.
Take the long way.
Drive a little slower; don’t matter where we’re going.
Take the long way.
Drive a little slower; don’t matter where we going now.
Take the long way
Drive a little slower; not ready to go home.
I’d rather stay with you.
We can take the long way.
Long drive, long night, 
The best night of my life.

Be brave to pass all the exams

Summertime Sadness III

Not so much has happened since yesterday, but I couldn't miss putting "Summertime Sadness" as the song of the day, because I promised myself so.
I can't believe it's the first day of summer 2014; I remember the first summer day last year, like it was yesterday. Well, I've just gone through my post about that day and about the last summer day of 2013 to make sure how to organize my post's title. And BTW, I'm in love with "Summertime Sadness II" 's ending. How smart of me!
So, what's your plans for this summer? What about me, so firstly I figure on finishing this month called examber (thanks to my imagination), then I plan on sending my docs to the universities I've chosen and waiting to their reaction while partying hard with my friends. After getting permission to enter a university I'll be quickly off to there to give them my original documents and papers they'll need. After two weeks on the land of my university I'll be back to my island for the fortnight as well to do some farewell parties and get finally ready for my new life. And on the last day of summer 2014 you'll already have a post from my new home.
Oh man, how sentimental! But there's no time to cry - tomorrow I'll pass my next to last examination - for English this time. Actually, I can't but wait for the day after tomorrow - I'll get my mayor prize. I seem to not have written of it. OOPS. In spring my teacher asked me to bring all my diplomas to send my summary to the city's administration. It won't be the first mayor prize for me: I got the first one for "Folk Single Singer" nomination and the second one was for "Graduating Student" when I graduated from my music school with the honours degree. Before all this stuff I got a prize from the city council for being an excellent pupil. You see, our Government has sunk not enough money into me;D. I wonder how much it will be this time. MOOOAAAR MOOONEEEEEY!!!
Well, I'm not going to interrupt you anymore today. Just listen to the song of the day and enjoy the start of the summer.

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That, baby, you're the best

I got my red dress on tonight
Dancing in the dark in the pale moonlight
Done my hair up real big beauty queen style
High heels off, I'm feeling alive

Oh, my God, I feel it in the air
Telephone wires above are sizzling like a snare
Honey, I'm on fire, I feel it everywhere
Nothing scares me anymore

(1, 2, 3, 4)

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That, baby, you're the best

I got that summertime, summertime sadness
S-s-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

I'm feelin' electric tonight
Cruising down the coast goin' 'bout 99
Got my bad baby by my heavenly side
I know if I go, I'll die happy tonight

Oh, my God, I feel it in the air
Telephone wires above are sizzling like a snare
Honey, I'm on fire, I feel it everywhere
Nothing scares me anymore

(1, 2, 3, 4)

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That, baby, you're the best

I got that summertime, summertime sadness
S-s-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Think I'll miss you forever
Like the stars miss the sun in the morning sky
Later's better than never
Even if you're gone I'm gonna drive (drive, drive)

I got that summertime, summertime sadness
S-s-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That, baby, you're the best

I got that summertime, summertime sadness
S-s-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Be brave before you go

P.S. Check out my summer design! *lots of love!*

The Last Day Of Sakhalin Spring

Huh, I don't even notice what a month is outside, so I couldn't follow how the very end of May has come! I can't imagine it was the last spring in my hometown (I want to believe). Yeah yeah, 'who knows how my life will go', blah blah blah, I know. So I will try hard not to please you, beotches. AHAHAHA
Weeeeell, the day before yesterday, 29.05.2014, a final state exam for the Russian language was held. I was so self-confident before it, so I even tried making myself worry at least a bit about anything (yeah, some may wonder if I was totally mindless or what?). But after the examination itself I found something to be bothered about...
