Moved to Espoo

I moved to Espoo this evening. Tomorrow is July 1 and I have to start my new job. So I moved to the new place in Espoo that I have rented more than a month back. I came here by train. Atique, one of my undergraduate school friends helped me a lot in this aspect. He took the key from the Chinese guy 2 weeks back. Today Atique met me in Helsinki railway station and gave his hand to carry my stuffs. He gave me a pizza dinner also. After he left I started my laptop and this is my first post from the new place.

The new place is very messy. The room I got is kinda OK but the common place and the kitchen is totally a mess. I don't know if I will give the effort to fix all those things. I will live here 2 months only. Let's see.

I have left the warm, considerate Tampere community. For sure I am gonna miss Tampere badly - its people, sports activities and gatherings. I want to visit Tampere frequently but I know time is cruel and it will make me busy in the new place. At least I have the sweet memory from Tampere with me.

Confused about FIFA World Cup official song :-S

I am confused about the official song of FIFA World Cup 2010. Just today I read in FIFA website that 'Waka waka' sung by Shakira is the official song for this world cup. Quoting from their website - "FIFA and Sony have chosen Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) as the official song of the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ in South Africa. The song was written by Shakira, the world-famous singer from Latin America, who will perform with South African band Freshlyground.". It confirms that this is the official song. I just don't know why I have been listening the 'Waving flag' for last few weeks, and in youtube it is written in many videos as title as official song for world cup 2010. If 'waka waka' is the official song then what 'waving flag' is for? Is it just a song composed by the South Africans keeping in mind that they are hosting 19th world cup of history :-S Anyway, I like both the songs and I am giving link here.

Waiting for the world cup

I am eagerly waiting for the sporting event with the largest worldwide audience - FIFA World Cup. Only 1 day to go to open the world cup. Tomorrow is the opening ceremony of the 19th Fifa World Cup in Johannesburg, capital of South Africa. The first match will be on the next day, 11 June. The first world cup I can remember is 1990 in Italy. Since then I used to enjoy world cup once in every four years. This is the first time I am abroad during world cup. In our country, it is quite common to watch the game with friends and family together with snacks and tea. Obviously I am gonna miss that :( Moreover, I will leave Tamepre by the end of this month, so I might have to watch the game alone :( Anyway, the whole world is cheering up. I wish I can cheer up as well.

Second shifting

Yesterday was my second shifting. I came to Wali's room last night. I was supposed to be in Shaikat vi's place till June 3 but he was not letting me go. Every evening when I told him to give me a lift in his car to shift my stuffs he used to tell me that he is tired. Then he laughed and said "well we are feeling good with your company". In this way I stayed there 3 days more than I was supposed to. Finally last evening he agreed to give me the lift and now I am in Wali's room. I am supposed to stay here till the end of this month. Then I will move to Espoo.

Why am I so lazy :(

One week ago I got result of one course. It's a 5 credit course and I got grade 4 even though I was expecting 5. It's been a week and I didn't do anything. Just today, I thought to visit the course teacher to have a look at my answer script. So I went to her room and I found that I have got 27 out of 30. To get a grade 5 I need to get 28. I had 4 bonus points in exercise sessions during the course implementation which makes my score 31. So I should be graded with a 5 in that course. I told the teacher and she checked. She found out that she forgot to add my bonus points while sending the result to the administration. She said sorry, and promised me to correct my result and send it again to the administration. When I left her room I had mixed feeling - happy for I got 5 in the course, sad because I am careless about educational grade stuff. Even this morning I was so reluctant to visit the teacher. Just imagine, if I would not go I would have missed a 5 in a 5 credit course for nothing. Lazy me :(

Shifting begins

Yesterday I moved out from my home. I was in that home since November 2008. It's a long time, long enough to be felt like own home. I moved in Shaikat vi's home yesterday evening. I will be here for 3 days. After that I will move again. One of my friends is going to Bangladesh for a visit on June 3. He will come back in mid July. I will be in his home for the whole month of June. After that I have to shift to Espoo finally. So lots of moves in one month. Moving is always hard and it introduces chaos. Life is getting chaotic in different aspect :(
