Tales of a Finishing School Dropout




Hi there! I'm Kate and I'm 18 and a UChicagoan. I'm a Hufflepuff (and proud of it) and basically part of the BBC fandom, but I also like to post pictures of my various arts and crafts. Scroll through, send an ask, and enjoy the madness that is my barbaric yawp.
  • cute boy tells me i'm pretty: lmao i know are u jealous
  • cute girl tells me i'm pretty: [stumbles backwards] ....... dear god...... i.... how could this happen......

Detail from my new piece which is a “conceptual map” of Lily Allen’s It’s Not Me It’s You. Basically I listen to music and draw whatever I feel like. This one was made while listening to “Chinese”

Bus seats in Finland - for the unsocial people, like me.

Rule number one in Finnish public transport culture: Don’t sit next to anyone. Unless the seats are like this.In every other cases fill the spots from window seats. Then standing up seats. If the bus gets crowded sit next to someone but sit as far as possible from the other person and turn your head to look to the completely different direction. Don’t say a word. And if you’re the one sitting next to window pray all the gods that the other person leaves before you, because otherwise you’d have to speak to him/her. Usually it’s something like “Umm..ileavenow”. Remember, no sorries or smiles. Just say it as low and fast as possible without making any eye contact. 

legit advise for people visiting finland. that “ileavenow” is “mä jään täs” in finnish. it’s okay if you don’t pronounce it perfectly right because the only reason someone would talk to strangers in public transport is to ask them to move, so they will get the hint. 
BUT! usually just things like putting your phone away and rustling your bag and looking like you are about to leave will do the trick. no need for words.
….and this is how you wait for a bus in finland:


Reblogging because of that picture. So true. And familiar.

This is the most bizarre thing I’ve ever seen…what the actual fuck. It almost seems like a joke but I feel like it’s actually serious????

?????¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿

I have found my people.
