24. What’s your dream job?

Research and maybe some teaching: reading a lot, thinking a lot, writing what I can. It is basically doing what I do now, only with someone paying me for doing it.
Someone? No? Ok.

26. What is the best piece of advice you’ve received?

“You are not your PhD thesis”. It was true.

7, 14, and 25? 💕

7. How long is the longest you’ve walked at one time?

I was an instructor in a summer camp in the Pyrenees. What was supposed to be a 3-hour-walk ended up being 6-or-7-hours of agony because we all got lost in the woods while we where descending a mountain. All was happiness and relief when we found the road back to our cabin.

14. What accomplishment are you most proud of?

Talking of academia, it is successfully finishing my PhD last year. Talking of life, I don’t really know… being still alive counts as an accomplishment?

25. What fictional character do you wish you could meet?

I posted this “Ask game” before reading all of the questions. This is a hard one. I’ll let the nerd side talk: GANDALF. Because I am convinced TOTORO really exists and I will meet him someday.

@ohmyphd: Depends on the type of research, but I also like to add some key words, so that I can do a quick search if I need to :)

That’s such a good idea! I dont key words because my research is very specific but I can definitely see how they would be useful.

Hi! One of my favourite books is Hyperion by Friedich Hölderlin and according to Pottermore, my patronus is a wild rabbit. 🌷 Arwen pleeeease!

i don’t realy have one of my own for her but one of my favorites is this one: “I have a little head-canon that Arwen met Aragorn when he was injured and in Rivendell. Arwen sang to him, not realizing he might have been awake. This, to me, is justified because when Arwen asks him about how they met, and he says “it felt like a dream” he could have been hazed and confused. It’s silly, but it warms my heart to imagine this.”

Mourning Dove and Crane :)

What do you do to cheer you up when you’re sad?

Leave the house, get on a train, go somewhere by the sea, stand on a pier, buy a new book, have a coffee, look at houseplants, go for a long walk and take the train home, hopefully in a better mood.

Where is the farthest you have been from home?

I can tell you exactly because I get excited and make a note of when I go further than I’d been before

Furthest north: Helsinki Airport, taking off from the northern runway

Furthest south: arriving into Atocha station, Madrid from Barcelona

Furthest east: stood by the Katajanokka ferry terminal in Helsinki

Furthest west: standing in the Pacific Ocean in Port Orford, Oregon

Furthest by distance: Cameron’s English Pub, Half Moon Bay, California
