Who am I? Not Spiderman, that’s for sure. When I was a child I really wanted to, though.
My name is Juska. I grew up in a small town near the city of Jyväskylä, Finland. When I turned 18, I moved to the city and have been living there ever since. As of now, I think it’s time to move on and leave Jyväskylä behind. So.. Why not Finland too?
I’m studying Social Services in the University of Applied Sciences JAMK. From January 2016 til the end of May 2016 I will be doing my studies as an exchange student in the University of Central Lancashire, UK. This blog is about my experiences living (and studying) abroad. Most likely I will write too much about music and too little about studying. We’ll see.
But yeah, music has always been very important for me. I’ve enjoyed listening to it for as long as I can remember. Not just one genre, but music in general. When I was 13 I discovered punk rock and it pretty much made me the man I am today. It also turned me from a listener to a performer. For the past seven years I sang in a punk band called Total Recall. We got to tour around Finland and Europe, released a few records and basically did all the things I dreamed about when I was still living in that small town. What happens next is a total mystery. I hope my time in England will help me solve it.
Alright then.. Let me tell you some stories.
