How do you dream about a place you have never been to?

I am not sure but apparently it's possible! I see Suomi almost every night. :)

I can't wait to see if my dreams are half as good as what I will someday see!

A few photos of Finnish fashion. The first two are taken from but the next is from

Paha Maa


It's a keskiviikko (Wednesday) night in sunny California and I'm busy watching Paha Maa. :)

I've only seen lumi (snow) four times in my life! I am in for such a shock in 2011. I can't wait!

By the way, I'm Karissa. I'm 19 years old. And I have dreams of going to college in Finland in fall 2011.

So much more to come!


Why Finland?

The question I am most often asked is "Why Finland?"
To this day, I honestly have no idea. It has enchanted me for the past few years and my love for it and its people hasn't faded in the least; it has only grown.

"Have you ever been there?"
No. I haven't. But I am ecstatic for the day that I do.
