This whole week has been one of those theme weeks in my school – this time the theme was openness. :) All students got divided into groups and had to, within one week, do some sort of project around the theme that they'd present to the rest of the school on Friday. My group decided to do several short videos about different scenarios relating to the theme.
But yeah, that's not what I wanted to talk about. xD You see, during these theme weeks we also have one day on which we have a field day or we go and visit an art museum etc. This time we went to the nearby Riekkola nature reserve to spend the whole morning there!
Riekkola is a nature reserve that is open for anyone to visit. It's a popular place for school field days, skiing, walking on nature trails, bird-watching and so on. Many people come here for exercise too because there's a lot of nature paths you can take through different terrains.

I haven't been to Riekkola on a field day for yeaaaars so yeah, it felt kinda weird to be back here, just like on the old days – except with adult students this time.
|Hill leading to the cottage area.|
The first thing I saw when I got up the hill was the sledding hill that some teachers and students were preparing. Soon enough the first group got there and the laughter and screams started sounding as people slid down the hill on whatever glide-friendly that was available. I'm pretty sure there was some competition going on with who could go the farthest too.
You might think that adults are too... you know, adults... to enjoy this kind of "typically reserved for children" activities but hey, guess what? Fuck that. :DD
|Preparing to go down...|
|Extra speed pushes for everyone!|
|Looks like fun, right? :'D|
|Everyone got a ride!|
|Someone even struck a pose for me, whoa!|
You know, most people just went down the hill the normal way but there were these two guys who clearly thought that just sitting on your ass was too mainstream...
|Gather speed, soldier!|
|Let's ride! FUCK YEAAAAAH. 8D|
Okey, they're cheating a little because the bottom guy with the green jacket has one of those gliders under his belly. xD But still, they were hilarious and they got surprisingly far to boot.
But they weren't the only ones spicing things up.
|STOMACH GLIDING ON MATTRESSES – HELL YEAH.|
This one guy with the black coat who was pushing everyone for extra speed also deserves some creds... even though he got all snowy, haah.
|Yo man, you did well.|
You could, for example...
|Build the highest snow pillar in 15 minutes!|
|Or do some wrestling in the snow!|
(bonus points for taking off your jacket)
|Coffee in progress.|
|Sausage grilling, aww yeah!|
Why I'm mentioning him is because he was assigned the role of the grill maister
|Always-happy Grill Maister Göran.|
The field day lasted from 10:00 to around 12:30 something. I stayed a bit longer because I asked for a ride home from Göran since, as I mentioned above, my hands were so frozen I had problems moving my fingers. >_> I did get a ride back, yay!
|The weather, of course, finally cleared up when it was time to go home.|
Another goodbye gift from the trip was the smoke smell that I can't seem to get rid off, lol.
|My pants got a little bit wet... :DDDD|
That's about all that I have to say about my school day today! Thanks for reading ~
