    Ohai! :3 I have indeed returned, for an indeterminate period of time. It's been far too long!

    I'm being extra careful about it. I know that would count as a spoiler for me D:

    It was fantastic! As a fairly hardcore fan of the franchise, it was definitely satisfying
  4. MMMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

  5. Boy, this place has changed. It feels weird to be back.

      But it is nice to see you! ^_^

  6. Hey Maia! I've got a prayer request if you don't mind. I'm currently trying to organise a Christian music night/nights, for my Church. And in order to do it, I will need to raise over £200. The gospel will be preached and hopefully people will come to a knowledge of God on the night. So please could you pray that God will help organise it, and lead me to do it His way, and guide me, and that the funds needed will be raised? Thank you Maia! I really appreciate it! God Bless! xx

    What was the last movie you watched?

    A Japanese film called Departures (Okuribito). No matter how many times I watch it I still bawl my eyes out T^T
  8. I still am wearing a jacket, but were I live it varies between about 40 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit in the Spring. But it's damp, usually cloudy, and often rainy in the Spring. The coldest it usually gets in the Winters is 20 degrees and the hottest it usually gets in the Summers 90 degrees. Those must be very cold Winters. How warm does it get in the Summer?

    I've never heard of or had the salted licorice. I know my Grandma likes licorice. She'd buy licorice growing up. My Grandma makes fruit soup for Christmas. And then my family will sometimes buy or make pasties. Well, they're English to begin with. But with the mining in the late 1800s pasties became big in the region my Grandma's from. And a lot of Finnish people live there. The man who owns the pastie shop we usually get pasties from is of French descent.

    Edited - nevermind.
  10. This time of year's not so cold anymore, but I still have to wear a jacket and scarf every time I go outside. It's a big improvement from -30C like we had this past winter, so I'm not complaining :P Have you ever tried any traditional Finnish foods? Or the ever-popular salt licorice?

  12. I'm pretty culturally American, but I enjoy learning about other cultures or cultures of my ancestors. That's cool you have Canadian citizenship. Is it really cold in Finland this time of the year?

    How far would you go?

    Hmmm, well I can't compare Canada to other countries so I don't really know if that's true either. My hometown university in Canada is approximately 10,000-15,000 CAD per year. College is significantly cheaper - around 5,000 typically. But this is in one of the most expensive cities in the country so the living costs really add a lot onto the pile. As for Central America... depends on what you wanna study. My friend is currently studying at a Portantorchas Bible college in Costa Rica and she just loves it. It's safe, has a great community and I don't think the tuition fees are too bad (although I don't know exactly how much it costs).
  14. Wow, that's quite the mix of cultures! Awesome! As for me... well, I'm ethnically Finnish but since I was born in Canada (my immigrant parents had gotten Canadian citizenships by then), I have both Canadian and Finnish citizenships.

  15. No, I don't know Finnish. My Grandma does though. She grew up speaking Finnish around the house. I think I'm well Finnish or at least Finnish American culture. I've spend a lot of time with my Grandma, who's of mostly of Finnish and Saami descent. I'm of Polish, German, Finnish, Saami, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Greek Macedonian, and Russian descent. Are you part Canadian?
