Throwback to a year ago when my hometown's "unit for uneducated and unemployed youth" contacted me after I was made exempt from national service (trans) because they were worried I'd become socially excluded.
I wasn't part of the youth according to their criteria, I had a job contract with the university and was less than a year away from finishing my PhD.
It's great that they're trying to help people but I feel they might benefit from some extra vetting...
Finished watching Wolfwalkers (from Cartoon Saloon, the secret of kells & song of the sea fame) over discord. The movie was so good, strong, strong recommend, I loved the music as I always do with their films, but it was also nice to watch a movie with friends for the first time in a while, even if just online :)

Felt like writing a blog post. I went to Cape Town in late 2019 for a week: https://harhailevatarina.wordpress.com/2021/02/16/visiting-cape-town/
And lastly, attempting to make pizza myself for the first time since moving here. This was really nice, and I have a ball of dough cold-rising in the fridge waiting for tomorrow ☺️
This is a Nordic dessert (the Finnish version), usually eaten around this time of the year. Sweet bun with thick whipped cream and jam inside.
I intended to make vegan bánh mí (with mushroom paté and tofu), but I underestimated how long the bread would take and ended up taking some shortcuts so that I could eat before 11 PM. It was still tasty, just not really the right texture.
Buori sámi álbmotbeaivvi buohkaide!

Happy Sámi National Day!
