I am exhausted… but so very happy
Why am I beat? Well I have been working very long hours since Monday in organizing a very special work related transnational gathering. The meeting was successful in my opinion, and the feedback we received let us to believe we did OK.
First of all I say how very pleased I am to be here and learn English under your professional guidance. My name is Leila and I live in Northern Finland; my home town is Oulu.
I do my best to keep you interested, but I also hope that you are very severe by pointing out my mistakes. When I write in English I keep on making grammar mistakes, I don’t get my prepositions right and I lack of looseness in my writing style.
I think that writing is kind of a performance. I have been watching American Idol on (or in… what about the article?) TV and I have been trying to find out; what makes a good performance.
I think that a good story is made with emotion, the act has to have a story, it needs to flow, passion has to be at present, the whole performance has to be technically right and finally it has to entertain. I know it is far too much for me try to achieve all that, I am merely trying to analyze, how one can try to improve oneself.
On a lighter note, I very much doubt that my blogs are going to be a great entertainment, but one thing I promise; you will learn a lot about Finland and a bit about me too. The good thing is, that over the months I have noticed that you bloggers are very energetic and happy people, so please help me to make these weeks memorable.
By the way our national anthem is called “Our land.” What is your national anthem and are you yourself a good singer? Maybe you also sing while taking a shower!
