Eat | Study | Party | Repeat

"Remember that the most valuable antiques are dear old friends." - H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Unilife is lit. I'm studying like a maniac but still have time for parties and it's just amazing. The only issue I'm facing soon is exhaustion. Eat, sleep study, party, repeat. But still, I have met many amazing people. The thing with university is that you meet people who mostly share the same interests as you. I get to fulfill the needs of my both personalities (those who don't know I have a slight form of split personalities - Toomas, the social butterfly and Erik, the nerd who loves to study and work hard). Toomas enjoys the parties which happen quite often. For example, as I'm writing this post I'm killing my time until the party which locates in an underground parking lot starts. We also had a small "meet n greet" thingy last week where we went to Old Town and visited some bars. However, thankfully Erik holds Toomas under control and for example yesterday night I completed the programming homework which had a deadline in October 15th.

Actually I put the flash on by accident x)

One half of our studygroup

We have an amazing study group with who I study physics together. Once or twice a week we gather up in library and reserve a private room in there. I love to study what I'm interested in. At first, I wasn't quite sure if I'm studying the right thing but I thought I'd still give it a shot. I also bought a new laptop Dell XPS which is capable of playing FIFA 18 (of course) and it looks solid which is important to me, I needed a powerful computer which didn't look like a gaming machine. Furthermore, I'm broke af because I bought the laptop and also moved from my sister's to dormitory. At least now I live near the school and can sleep longer.
What else.. hmm.. Oh, just the thing that I'm going to Budapest in October!!! Like I said in the last post that I joined BEST-Estonia which is an international organisation. This organisation freaking sends me to Budapest to attend a Regional Meeting where I have to represent our local BEST group. It's scary as hell but I can finally get out of my comfort zone again! The meeting takes place from 12th till 15th but I'm going to stay till 16th because I want to explore Budapest by myself too - take some "me" time. Anyway, I'm sure it's gonna be cool.
October's gonna be busy. I'm also turning 20 then and I still have no glue whether I'm going to throw a huge party or a smaller one with my best friends. And more about birthdays, my friend Brigita got older and as usual she threw a small party at her countryside house. Sauna, hot tub, lot's of food and drinks and the most important, great company.

Find yourself a man who looks at you like Juhan looks at Brigita

Totally OK

I don't consider myself an artsy person but I love the 20th century, its style, groove, music etc. I accidentally found a photographer who's every photo is a small piece of art. His name is Vincent Peters and I'm just gonna leave my favorite photo of his.

"Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity." - Khalil Gibran

Time flies so fast that I had no idea that it has been more than a month since the last post. Anyway, I just wanted to update and say that I'm still breathing and blogging but I've been more busy than ever. The thing I wanted to tell you is that I'm not going to Defence Forces as the plan was because of my health problems (my knees wouldn't handle the pressure). From one side it's quite sad because I wanted to go but I'm positive about it because thanks to that I get to start studying in university right away. I'm coming back to the university topic later but a few events which happened in August need to be written down first.


Firstly, I don't see myself as a politician but as I'm moving to Tallinn and I'm in love with my hometown I decided to apply for the city council in Viljandi. It's important for me to visit my hometown and be useful in making Viljandi a better place. My main goal is to improve our school system - some of you might remember but I was a programming teacher in an NGO for primary school students and organised a programming workshop for children. Unfortunately, I'm more busy now and I can't do these things myself anymore but I can encourage other people to educate others from their spare time. Therefore, if you live in Viljandi and are more than 16 years old then mark your calendars because I invite you to vote for me - nr. 225, Toomas Erik Anijärv. You can vote on the Internet from October 5h till October 10th. The last chance to vote for me is in October 15th where you need to visit the local department to vote.

Nr. 225

Secondly, just before going to school I attended Estonian School Student Councils Union's summer school and it was amazing. The three days I spent in there were both educating and fun. We had many inspiring people who shared their wisdom with us and in the evening we had cool activities which made us even more exhausted. I met many new pals and gals. I also got the chance to meet Juhani Särglep who's one of my favorite social media stars in Estonia. He told us how he worked hard to turn his passion profitable. The most memorable moment from the camp was from the first night. The team woke us up and they were dead serious and told us to meet the others outside. It was 3 a.m or something and for real we thought that someone was missing. Then they told everyone that it's important to stay calm and we had to move through forest to the seaside. It may not seem scary but at the moment it was because I was sleepy and it was dark outside. Then it turned out a prank and we made a huge group photo at the seaside. It was fun.

We were tired as hell but the joy shadowed it

While I was in camp one night the huge boxing match Mayweather vs McGregor took place in Vegas and my roommate and I woke up really early in the morning and watched in on the projector in the seminar room. We were tired as hell but it was worth it. I knew that Mayweather would win the match but secretly I still had my fingers crossed for McGregor. The match went on for 10 rounds and then Mayweather ended it. Anyway, this camp generated many cool memories for me.

Baila y fiesta!

Good-spirited and beautiful - Anett, one of the main organizers

Huge thanks for organizing such an amazing event for us, team!

Thirdly, I'm now a university student, aye! First weeks behind me and so far everything seems cool. I've made a few friends from my class and I joined a really freaking awesome organisation called BEST-Estonia. It's an international organisation and BEST stands for Board of European Students of Technology. We had an awesome weekend together - we learned, talked, partied, etc. I'm going to talk about that in the next post because otherwise this post would have too much different information. I actually have so much things planned and I can't wait to tell you about them. Leave feedback and say hi to me so I wouldn't be so late with my next posts.
