I’m Stefani, and this is my blog! 🙂 I’m a Bulgarian living in Finland, loving it, it’s awesome. I study in Helsinki and write blog posts about my life and interests (which are a lot).
The most often asked question I get is “Why did you choose Finland?” and it’s actually not an easy question to answer, since the reasons are more than one, but let’s just say that I really like the country and the people here. I’ve been an exchange student in high school in Espoo, so I’ve hung out with a lot of Finns and I decided that I would like to come back and live here, but I also wanted to try a different environment, so I went to a swedish-speaking university, from where I now have many swedish-speaking friends. 🙂
A little about my interests… I’m not very special in that department, I don’t collect leaves or practice karate, but I love music and good movies. I love the 80’s, even though I’ve been born in the 90’s. I don’t have a favorite band, but I enjoy a lot of Def Leppard, Toto, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Bon Jovi, Yngwie Malmsteen, Gary Moore, Whitesnake, John Farnham, Don Henley and KISS to name a few. Or anything similar. And often also softer things from the 70’s like Simon & Garfunkel for example. 🙂 Music is a big part of my life and I love talking about it or listening to it with my friends. I’m famous for having an appropriate musical lyric for every situation in life. But I also listen to like…club music and stuff like that, when I’m hanging out with people in clubs and so on.
As for movies, I’m also a crazy cinematic fan. I like Tarantino’s works quite a lot, I don’t think he’s had a bad movie. Christopher Nolan also has some kick-ass productions and I like watching all kinds of genres. From thriller to comedy, documentary and drama and everything in between. What’s good is good. A few of my favorite movies are Star Wars (first three), Lord of the Rings, Inglorious Basterds, Djumanji, Good Will Hunting, Dead Poets Society, Trainspotting, American Beauty and Interstellar. But of course, I have many, many more favorites. I also watch a lot of series like Game of Thrones, True Detective, Hannibal, Orange is the new Black, Breaking Bad and a few more. 😀 I’m genuinely interested in Film and TV and cameras and stuff like that. I also watch a lot of youtube on daily basis with my favorite channel being Jacksgap. 🙂
I’m also interested in Entrepreneurship, just because a simple 9 to 5 day job doesn’t sound interesting to me. I’m a part of an Entrepreneurship society and I like going to events connected to personal success, innovation, creativeness and constant improvement. I don’t like boring office jobs and I can’t see myself being a part of a big corporation for a very long time, but I do encourage everyone to do whatever they feel best fits them. I’m interested in media and marketing, but only time will show what I will do eventually. 🙂
I’m also an ambivert, which means I can’t be around people for too long, but I also can’t be alone for a long time. I thrive in both environments, I enjoy going to big clubs full of people (or festivals) and loud music, but I also enjoy casual sit-downs at someone’s place or a bar just talking about things. I’m very, very, very social, I absolutely love talking to people and I’m easily approachable. I know more people than the average person and I’m generally a good conversation partner. If you see me somewhere and would like to talk to me, just go ahead! 🙂
But yes, this is me in a nutshell.
