"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.

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.
