My problems ...

My problems ...
... are after all "first world problems". I had a happy childhood and I have never really seen any sort of a poverty or suffering. So, what do I know about hunger, slavery, sickness, death, war or any such real problems. So, why should I care about SPAM, trash, noise, slippery winter weather or any such trivial issues. Things could be worse. Although, things could be also better ...

For the first time the independence day in Tampere, I looked at it when making the food :D
But I agree with you, how small are our problems when you see what on so many places in the world is happening, nice picture as an illustration.

Sometimes I wish our independence day would be in summer. Maybe then peeps would really have fun outside, and not have this stupid institution of having "Linnan juhlat", and just as stupid demonstration against it, and all the rest of us sitting at home and watching it from TV. Good thing this year was the marvelous televised concert arranged. That was finally something for the whole nation.

I was actually playing Magic the Gathering with my friends and didn't saw any of it. Only heard about the concert from Sari =D

Thinking is sometimes exhaustive... Then it is better to let it come out =D

Happiness is not about things--it's about relationships!!! Your image is a good example. :)

Well said Merle! Right to the point. From that point of view one should solve also the trivial problems. For example keeping the city clean should be solved in a way that also strengthens the community, not to blame each other. And there at least I have lot to learn.
