Discussion Looking for people who are into dark academia!

9 Upvotes

Hello everybody,

I am very introverted and often spend time by myself. I do enjoy it, but as of lately I have been wanting to do my hobbies or hang out with people who are into dark academia.

This is very niche, therefore hard to find people who are into this.

I will leave a small introduction below.

So I’m a 22 year old (mostly traditional) art student from Espoo. I live alone with my 2 cats and one dog. In my free time I like reading books, watching movies, listening to music, doing art, going for walks or playing video games. I enjoy cooking and baking as well. I used to do ballet, but stopped earlier this year.

I like philosophy, metaphysics, psychology and classic literature.

My 2 main languages are English and Finnish. I also speak Russian and German, and a bit of school Swedish.

Please note that I am strictly looking for friends only who are interested in the same things.

Bonus points if you’re a girl because I lack girl friends haha :P

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Thank you for reading, and if you’re interested, please DM me. :)

Discussion Pääkaupunkiseudun tulevat arvonnousualueet

6 Upvotes

Tässä ensiasunnon ostoa mietin ja tällainen tutkimus osui silmään. Tutkimuksessa mainitaan Helsingin lähitulevaisuuden kovimmiksi arvonnousualueiksi Kruununvuorenranta ja Munkkivuori. Espoosta taas nostetaan Finnoo koko maan ykköseksi. Onko muilla heittää vastaavia dokumentteja?

Varmaan ihan paikkansa pitää kärkinousijoiden osalta, mutta olisi kiva listata vähän muitakin nousualueita.

Discussion What do you guys think about an app that lets you know if people around you in Helsinki are open to interaction or not?

0 Upvotes

Post your outfit so that the digital look matches your real life look. Long press on the outfit to find out if the person is open to interaction or not. Each person has their hobby listed, so there's a potential conversation starter. Looking for feedback currently. App is on the App Store: Here

Other features include posting your OOTD, liking those around you, seeing Top outfits in your area.

Discussion Katuväkivalta

91 Upvotes

Jouduin valitettavasti tänään todistamaan mahdollista ryöstön yritystä alkuillasta Tarkk’ampujankadulla kymppisporan päätepysäkillä. Kaksi nuorehkoa miesoletettua kävivät kunnon painiottelua yrittäen vuoroin lyödä vastapuolta ja vuoroin heittää katuun. Meno oli sen verran hurjan näköistä, ettei ohikulkijoista tai sporan matkustajista ollut puuttumaan tilanteeseen. Itsekin sain vain karjaistua kovaan ääneen ”HEI!” samalla kun jatkoin kulkuani tappelijoita kohti. Päästyäni kohdalle tilanne oli jo ohi, eikä ulkoisia vahinkoja näkynyt kummassakaan kaverissa. Toinen näistä puhkui kovaan ääneen, että hänen puhelimensa yritettiin viedä. Mitään pidempää jälkipuintia ei päässyt syntymään, kun sekä oletettu uhri että ryöstönyrittäjä lähtivät omiin suuntiinsa sen verran ripeästi.

Alkaako tämmöinen toiminta olemaan ihan todellisuutta jo rauhallisemmillakin alueilla kantakaupungissa? Tähän asti olen pitänyt esim. Hesarin uutisointia nuorison merkkivaatteiden ja kalliin elektroniikan ryöstöistä vähän liioiteltuna ja/tai vain Kamppi-Steissi-alueella viikonloppuiltaisin tapahtuvana ilmiönä.

Edit: kadunnimi oikein

Discussion HSL:n tarkastusmaksu

1 Upvotes

Hei, rupesin miettimään, että mitä jos kun tarkastaja pyytää sinulta henkilöpapereita ja sanoit että ei ole, ja sen jälkeen pyytää täyttämään lapun minne liitetään hetu yms, niin mitä jos ei hetuakaan olevinaan muista? Jos sanoo että muistaa tietysti alun = oman syntymäpäivän, vaikka 170486 mutta ei loppua? Eihän ne voi oikeastaan enään tehdä mitään

Kiitos vastaukssista

Discussion Vicious bus schedule enigma

84 Upvotes

There many good things about public transportation in Helsinki, it’s also developing rapidly and such, but: God, why do buses and trams leave before schedule if they arrive earlier?! Like you’re running towards the bus, it arrived 2-3 minutes earlier, doesn’t give a damn about you and leaves you stranded until the next one comes in an hour. Just whyyy can’t they stick to their own schedule? This is a desperate outcry, of course, but also I am genuinely wondering

Discussion Not sure whether I live in a good neighborhood

68 Upvotes

Around 3 weeks ago, I noticed there is the below "Z" (approx. 40x40 cm in size) painted on an asphalt road for pedestrians only, quite close to my rented apartment (Kontula). Some days later, I noticed another, a bit bigger one, 15-20 m away from this.

I know that the majority in these buildings around me are either from the Middle East or from Africa, there are also many Russians, and only the minority is native Finn by now here, so probably nobody really cares about these "messages". Moreover, if there is anybody like me, who notices (triggered by) these and a bit bothered by them, decides just to ignore to keep life easy. Overall, I'm really satisfied with the area because of the accessibility, the amazing nature, and our building is quite new, modern, comfortable, quiet.

My best idea is to buy some chemicals, walk there, and try to remove it. Other options and also questions to keep this topic as a discussion:

  • Does it even mean what I think it means or can it be anything else and I'm totally wrong?
  • Should I report it e.g. anonymously to some authorities or it will be considered as nothing worth mentioning?
  • Should I add some additional letters to it to have it e.g. "ruZZia"?
  • Have you seen this "message" in any other Eastern Helsinki districts?

For now, I would avoid any involvement with the authorities and I suppose the best is to wait if the "artist" will also notice eventually that nobody cares, so he/she paints or does something more significant.

I'm pretty sure it's not an "N"

Update: reported it here anonymously, with GPS coordinates.

Discussion Day trips from Helsinki

28 Upvotes

Hi everyone!

Flying to Helsinki in June for a week, would like to do some day trips and explore more areas of your beautiful country.

Any suggestions? I’m into picturesque “typical” finish places with wooden houses etc, maybe some nature. Will bring my drone with me as well to shoot some cool footage.

Right now Porvoo is on my list, maybe will also do a day-trip to Tallinn (I know it’s a different country, but many people suggested it to me). What are your thoughts on Nuuksio National Park?

Also would like to hear your opinions on Tampere and Turku. Yay or nay considering how much time I have.

Please share you favorite places near Helsinki (~ 3 hours at max by public transport). Will appreciate any suggestions. Thanks in advance.

Update: You all are awesome, thank you so much for every recommendation! I’m already in love in Finland and Finnish people! Will google everything and add to my list now :)

Everything’s in the headline. I’m unsure if it’s not the start of getting more insecure in the capital?

And better choose cities or even countries more Western?

Would be great to get some “external” ideas from citizens or also visitors.

Thank you.
