APH: kohta turvassa by R-Typed APH: kohta turvassa by R-Typed
all right.. I think this needs some explanation.

I've really wanted to do a piece of hetalia fanart since last september but never really got around it, not including all the ....scribbles I made with my friend in the class.

Anyway I've been through a lot of APH fanart and most of it is cutesy boylove or great fan comics, but .. you don't see pictures like this very often do you? Yeah I'm just no good with all that moe stuff and it's a shame since I'd really like to just go with the crowd for once.. too bad it's beyond my power.

It's supposed to represent the WW2, after my home country, Finland, got his ass handed to him by Russia. In the first sketch there was Russia included but I scratched it, leaving just this..

And there's actually some other stuff too. Finland is covered in forests, actually, you can drive through our whole fucking country without seeing any signs of civilization. It's been only like 60 years since we emerged from the countryside to cities so we're still very nature-friendly. Hell, there's a goddamn swarm of woods around my house and I'm supposed to live in the suburbs. So not many Finns realize that we do respect the forest, we've lived in there for hundreds of years. Most of our folk lore, even sayings and little every-day things have something to do with the nature, especially forests. Forests are a safe haven for us, hence Finland's attempt to hide there. From what I've gathered, for the central Europeans, forests mean danger and something dark, as for us they mean peace and safety. Finns, have you ever noticed how everyone just goes SILENT when you go to the woods with your friends? That's because we're so used to respecting it.

So anyway yes, my country is pretty cool after all... and I just thought I'd bring out the un-happy side of war for a change. Because some Hetalia fans just go crazy over this shit and forget that this is not only political satire, this stuff actually happened and it wasn't as funny in real life. Cuba is my favourite character from the hetalia bunch but in real life, that country has some god damn major problems. So please, have as much fun as you please with Hetalia, but being a history/politics fag as I am, I just stop it there.

Well actually I can't stand the swedenxfinland pairing because I fucking hate Sweden. No offence, Swedes. I just have this grudge against the country that has been trying to bring my culture down for decades and still does (mandatory swedish classes for example).

Oh, and the title translates to "safe soon" and the lyrics in the picture are taken from "Finlandia-hymni" ( [link] ), a stunningly beautiful composition. It was SUCH A SHAME it never became our national anthem as it was supposed to (instead we got some bavarian beer song, eh). The lyrics are just.. amazing. The particular sentences in this picture translate to "Oh rise, Finland, raise your head, veiled with grand memories".

This turned out to be a long ass commentary, I'm sorry about that.. It's a crappy picture. Bleh. And for the love of God don't take anything personally.

Edit 22/08/2009: Wow this piece attracted a lot of attention. I see it provoked feelings in both native Finns and foreigners, which is kind of what I was aiming for. I just wanted to tell something about my forgotten and not well-known home country. Even someone who doesn't like anime found it interesting just for its patriotic side! I'm really glad about how a lot of people wanted to comment on my views whether they agree or not, and I don't know if it's because of this piece but there has been a huge rise of stuff like this. I've seen a lot of sad and violent Finland pictures recently.

And to me, this means success. I love making people feel things with my art, it's what its all about. Thank you all, Finns and outlanders, for enjoying my small participation.

edit 1/10/09: Swedes, this is for you: Yes, I said I "fucking hate Sweden". I don't really care if you love my country, it doesn't change my opinion. Yes, I was harsh and very offensive. I was going to answer to all your comments but... I didn't really see the point. You just have to live over here to understand it. If you really want to talk about it, feel free to send a note.

And for the Finns, since I just love my language: Ja ei, te suomalaiset, vaikka rakastaisitte RuotsixSuomea Hetaliasta.. niin ei. Ei. Tutustukaa tekin aiheeseen ja koittakaa ymmärtää. Sen sijaan että perustaisitte tietämyksen sö;pöön poikaparitukseen niin.. joo. Ei tästä tule mitään. Voisin mäkin tässä sanoa että Suomi on Venäjän niemimaa mikä on muuten enemmän todellista kuin se että Suomi olisi osa Skandinaviaa. Anteeksi että loukkasin.

Ja teille suomalaisille vaikka tämä: [link]

Aivan mahtava ja hyvin kuvaava. Sen verran kommentoin että meidän kaksikielisyys on kyllä kyseenalainen juttu. Kovinkaan moni ei oikeasti ole kaksikielinen eikä ainakaan täällä sisämaassa koko kieltä ole tarvinnut. Eli sekin vähän mitä siitä oppi kadonnut.

I completely, totally, and utterly love this picture and the fact that you are a history fag like me... everyone in my hetalia group hates me when i tell the historical events behind the comic they really do

I love the swedenXfinland pairing but i never knew anything about it historically until i read this. The fact that American schools don't teach you stuff like this even though you spend an entire semester on WWII really agitates me, if i had know it would have changed my attitude completely. It would seriously piss me off if i was forced to learn another language especially since it's the language of the country that has been screwing over my country for a while...

The love of the forest and Finns must be super prominent because I'm barely Finnish but i still have a deep respect for the woods and i feel safer in them...

I am technically located in Sweden but consider myself a scanian, ;T so don't rage at me plx.

And I am not fond of the Sweden/Finland pairing myself, and was surprised at the huge amount of finnish shippers there exist of it. I thought finns hated Sweden and stuff but I guess the newer generation does not really have that hatred anymore? And as a scanian I know the rage one can feel towards Sweden as scanians pretty much got the same treatment from the swedish government the finns got, if not worse. But rant over, :V

Now, as for this amazing pic - it really reminded me of the movie "Tali Hantala", that was played out in many of the finnish forests as well. With the blood and the tearing marks at the uniform clothes representing how Russia was ripping into Finland I think it is well-represented here in this picture. Though, I still say Finland is one of the most admirable countries military-wise as it was pretty successful at fending back the russians despite being badly outnumbered.

Tosi hiano kuva. Mutta siis ihan oikeesti "Finnish media is run by one big corporation"?!

Jokaisessa länsimaassa, jollainen myös Suomi on, on olemassa valtiollinen yleisradioyhtiö. Onhan hyvänen aika Britanniassakin BBC, Ruotsissa SVT ja Tanskassa Danske Radio eikä kukaan silti vakavissaan sano, että koko brittiläinen, ruotsalainen tai tanskalainen media on yhden yrityksen kontroilloimaa.

Suuri enemmistö suomalaisista muuten kannattaa kaksikielisyyttä ja huomattava enemmistö nykynuorista kirjoittaa ruotsin vapaaehtoisena aiheena YO-kokeessa. RKP:n Eduskuntaan ovat valinneet äänestäjät vapaassa vaalissa, sitä sanotaan demokratiaksi. Pitäisikö suomenruotsalaisilta riistää äänioikeus?

Itä-Suomessa ruotsia ei ehkä kieltämättä tarvitse mutta esimerkiksi rannikolla se on ihan ehdottoman tärkeä kieli. Ja tärkeä osa suomalaista identiteettiä. Aikoinaan kuuluisa saksalaiskirjailija ja suuri Suomen-ystävä Bertolt Brecht sanoi, että suomalaiset ovat maailman ainoa kansa jotka osaavat olla hiljaa kahdella kielellä.

En normaalisti ole jaksanut kommentoida näihin koska luvassa on lähes poikkeuksetta itkuparkupotkua/natsikortin heittelyä/MUN ISOVELI ON HISSANMAIKKA/whatever mutta tällä kertaa tuntuu siltä että anti olla. Taidan kyllä accountin luomisajasta päätellen hö;plähtää nätisti anonyymiin trollaukseen mutta mikäs tässä kun tylsää on elämä.

YLE-asiaa en jaksa sen enempää kommentoida koska siitä nyt nousisi järjetön paskamyrsky salaliittoteorioita heitellessä, eikä se edes koskaan pointtini ollut, vaan se, miten oikea historia ei ole aivan yhtä ruusuista kuin Hetaliassa, ja se monelta sattuu unohtumaan.

Kuulehan, se tutkimus jonka mukaan "suuri enemmistö kannattaa kaksikielistä suomea" taisi muistaakseni olla suomenruotsalaisten asiaa ajavan lafkan (en kuollaksenikaan muista enää sen nimeä;) tilaama, joten se siitä jääviydestä. Tästä oli sen julkaisun aikaan isot keskustelut kun kantasuomalaiset ihmettelivät ääneen että miten vitussa tuollainen tulos on saatu aikaan kun varsinaiset kansan keskuudessa tehdyt tiedustelut (jo pelkästään esimerkiksi iltasanomien gallupeissa tulokset ovat Ei 97% ja kyllä 3%-luokkaa).

Valmistuneena ylioppilaana voin kenttätutkimuksen perusteella sanoa että suurin osa kirjoittaa Ruotsin seuraavista syistä vapaaehtoisena:
a.) Siitä on mahdollisuus päästä ns. yksi risti kaksi-menetelmällä lä;pi, toisin kuin matematiikasta, joka on se toinen vaihtoehto niillä jotka lukevat lyhyttä. Itse kirjoitin ko. kielen juuri tästä syystä ja pääsin kirjaakaan lukematta monivalinnoilla lä;pi, vaikka olikin kuulemma 2000-luvun vaikeimmat kirjoitukset (foliohattu sanoo että tarkoituksella, jotta saataisi itkettyä miten nuoriso ei enää osaa toista kotimaalaista). Tämä oli Se Ainoa Syy suurimmalla osalla oman lukioni abeilla, ja kuuleman mukaan myös muiden koulujen kirjoittajilla.
b.) Sillä oikeasti saattaa olla jotain merkitystä seuraavaan koulutukseen hakiessa, toisin kuin lyhyen matematiikan kirjoittamisella. Muistelisin, että pisteytyksissä toisesta kotimaisesta sai enemmän kuin lyhyen matikan arvosanasta. (Mikä on aivan tajutonta) Ainakin yliopistoon hakiessa.

Nämä kaksi syytä ovat kokemukseni mukaan ne ainoat, miksi ruotsi pysyy niin "suosittuna" vaikka onkin "vapaaehtoinen". Omasta mielestäni koko ruotsi&matikka-vaihtoehto saataisi heittää viiksistä vittuun ja kolmanneksi vaihtoehdoksi kolmas reaali.

Ja jos minulta kysytään niin ei, suomenruotsalaiset saavat äänestää, mutta RKP pitäisi enemmänkin tappaa pois niin pian kuin mahdollista. En näe mitään fiksua syytä _hallituksessa istuvalle_ puolueelle joka ei aja enemmistön asiaa ja pitää näin kärjistetysti sanottuna huolen siitä, että ankkalampi pysyy yhtä puhtaana kuin ennenkin. Pakkoruotsi.net-sivulle heitinkin aikaisemmin linkin mutta kun se tiivistää asiat niin loistavasti niin laitetaanpa taas mainio diagnoosi tästäkin herrainkerhosta [link]

Ja rannikolla? Siellä missä suomenruotsalaiset joka tapauksessa saavat toisiltaan palvelua ruotsiksi? Taitaapa asia olla niin, että moisissa pienissä kommuuneissa palkataan juurikin niitä ruotsalaisia aspoiksi eikä toista kotimaalaista huonosti (tai vähän sujuvamminkin) tangertavia suomalaisia. Eikö se oikeasti muka ole aivan huutava vääryys, että se 96% muusta väestöstä joutuu tällaisia ihmisiä varten opiskelemaan kieltä 9 vuotta ja vielä suorittamaan kolmannessa asteessa virkamiesruotsin kurssin ja mahdollisesti jopa enemmän? Kun suurin osa suomenruotsalaisista joka tapauksessa suomea pystyy puhumaan? Itse olen vieläkin katkera siitä, että köyhällä kunnallani ei ollut varaa järjestää saksankursseja (tarpeellinen kauppakieli) yläasteella pienillekkään ryhmille koska rahat eivät riittäneet kirjoihin, mutta ruotsille niitä resursseja aina riitti.

Laki kaksikielisyydestä on säädetty itsenäistymisen aikoihin jolloin ylimistö ja suurempi osa Suomen kansalaisista oli oikeasti ruotsinkielisiä. Melkein 100 vuodessa tilanne on hieman muuttunut, eikä laille yksinkertaisesti ole mitään fiksuja perusteita. Paitsi se, että edelleen ruotsalaiset liikesuvut pyörittävät ties mitä vaikutusvaltaisia virkoja.

Tärkeä osa identiteettiä, esimerkiksi muistuttamaan miten suomalaisia on kyykytetty monta sataa vuotta?

Ai hitto. Taisin kyllä nyt ratketa todella pahasti trollaukseen. No jaa, ainakin sain tekemistä pariksi minuutiksi.

I really like this drawing, I'm not sure why, it just looks awesome C:


I a the normal reaction to the fact that you 'fucking hate Sweden' would be to get aggressive, but I aggre partly:
Swedens old actions was extremly idiotic, and I don't like Sweden either.
I'd much rather be born in somwhere else - but the thing is that most countries had, somwhere in the past, done stupid things.
Like Germany (one of my favourite countries - not thinking Hetalia...) are often sonnected to WWII, and so on.
But the point is that I don't like my country...

(Though, I have to say, some the only people from Finland that I know actually likes speaking swedish, and I have never heard them complain about Swedens stupid actions...just saying...)

I actually like SuFin though, they're cute ^^, and all that nasty stuff that happened with Sweden is in the past now, so I think we should just let it go. I understand that it must suck to learn swedish for a finnish-speaker in the east, you don't really meet many swedish-finns there, do you? But you'll survive six years ^^ I've got nine years of mandatory finnish, and I'm failing D= it's VERY difficult. It's a shame I can't speak finnish with you even though we're both finnish D=

Erittäin jännä juttu tuo metsän osuus. Osui aivan naulankantaan! Olen itse syntynyt Helsingissä ja asunut siellä muutamia vuosia kunnes muutin maalle ja pääsin ekaa kertaa näkemään minkälainen oikea mettä. Aina kun maailma potki päähän tai halusin saada jostain turvaa/lohtua, menin tuonne metsään samoilemaan ja istuin kepeästi tuntejakin kuusen alla pienessä montussa kunnes tuli parempi olo ja menin takaisin kotiin ; )
Toki tykkään liikuskella ja asua kaupungillakin, mutta siellä ei jotenkin vaan..Tunne oloaan turvalliseksi tai silleen.

Itse kuvasta. Erittäin voimakkaat ja raa'at värit, hyvin aistikkaat myös. Maisema vaihtuu myös hyvin tuosta kirkkaasta lumisesta tantereesta metsän pimeyteen, oman maan syliin. Vertakin on käytetty todella hyvin, ilman sitä tämä kuva olisi jotenkin, vähemmän vakava. Havut on tehty todella hienosti ja samoin repaleiset vaatteet, saavat aidon tunnelman ilmaan.

Voipi olla, että RKP tippuu ihan parin viiden vuoden sisään pois kun enemmän kyynisiä pakkoruotsin opiskelijoita saa äänioikeuden. Tho, sitten riskiksi tulee se, että kun datatessa on aivot sulanut korvasta ulos ja koulussa ei ole opetus mennyt perille, niin äänet annetaan sitten seuraavana vuonna lä-pi pääsevälle Piraatti puolueelle. Mutta totta sekin, Suomi ja suomalaiset ylipäätään ottaa Ruotsista mallia ihan hirveästi, mitä svedut edellä sitä finskit perässä I'd say. Ollaan vielä niin nuori maa, ettei osata kasvaa itse.
Totta, ruottalaiset kohtelee meitä vähän törkeästi, mutta ruottalaisten kulttuurissa on suurena osana tietty tapa rakastaa maatansa ja itseänsä ja tieto siitä että Suomi oli ennen paljon kyseistä maata heikompi kasvattaa niiden ajatusta siitä entisestään. Meille historia opetetaan sillä kantilla, että meitä potkittiin ja sieltä noustiin, ruotsalaisille kerrotaan kuinka ne potki ja pysyi pinnalla. Mutta Ruotsin tilanne on muuten vähän huono, kyseisellä maalla on ihan sairas maahanmuutto ongelma jolle päättäjät eivät pysty enää tekemään mitään, yksi suurimpia kaupunkeja on jo niin sanotusti menetetty ei-omille kansalaisille. Ja vikoja löytyy kaikista maista, mutta omiensa parhaaksihan kaikki toimii.
And I'm pretty sure koulussa ei vieläkään kerrota sitä, miten törkeästi Suomalaiset sotilaat sodan aikana kohteli venäläisiä naisia ja lapsia, ei me nyt ihan liian hyväsydämisiä olla, katkeria ja itserakkaita jos oikein tylpästi sanotaan. Loukata en tietenkään tarkoita, itsekin vain olen ahkerasti historiassa vellonnut ja kulttuureja tutkinut. Eikä asiaa auta yhtään, että isoveli on historian opettaja, we have lot to learn young grasshopper!
Kuvasta vielä, ihan tajuttoman hieno taiteen lahja maailmalle. Pointti on selvä ja isänmaallinen, mitä pitääkin olla. Sota oli perseestä kaikkien kannalta, siellä kuoli minunkin vaarin veljistä jokainen nuorina ja aivan liian kokenemattomana. Kunnioitus sotaveteraaneille, niille me olemme vapautemme velkaa.

Yes, being a history fag as I am I absolutely fell in love with Hetalia's way of taking on politics and history. Too bad it was fouled after the anime was aired because of the boy love fangirls. Jesus christ it's not supposed to be a cock orgy of cute homosexual aryans, it's a political satire.

That's pretty cool, being a descendant of northern folks. My grandma speaks tornedalian finnish though she's from Finland's Lappland. Let us be proud of our roots.

And thanks for taking your time to check out my picture. Having an impact on peoples' feelings just makes it all worth while.

Tykkään tästä puolesta Hetaliassa paljon enemmän kuin siitä perussetistä, päättömiä parituksia ja muuta hupaisaa menoa saa irti jokaisesta sarjasta, mutta historialliset tositapahtumat ja maiden inhimillistäminen antaa hyvät kehykset tällaiselle paljon syvemmällekin faneilulle.

Aw man your comment really made my day.. Thank you. So rarely I receive such insight from people. I wanted to make a strong piece that'd make people stop on their tracks for a second and think about things and I guess I reached my goal when it comes to that.

I understand how people like Sweden x Finland as a pairing because of the characters, of course. But for me it's just kind of irritating to see my fellow finns taking it so well since - as I said - the swedish have treated us badly, thinking of us as a lower form of life and all that. I could go on and on all day about the topic but to save time and patience; every Finn has to study Swedish for 6 long years, though the swedish only make up for about 4% of our population. And to top it all off they have their own national party in our parliament to keep their sorry asses in charge.

Sorry, I didn't mean to rant, seriously. People have their right to enjoy a light-hearted series, but people just shouldn't forget about what is going on in reality. Thank you for your comment and taking such an interest.. it means a lot to me. :aww:

PS: Finland's character should totally be a drunk, angry but kind-hearted and honest woman. That'd sum us up better than anything, haha

oh, and Russia likes Finland way more than Sweden does. And NEVER EVER include Finland in Scandinavia (sweden, norway and denmark), please don't - we are NOT part of them, both in geological and cultural sense. .. damn I swear I didn't mean to rant again.

And so, be proud because... just like.. even before reading the description (Though that helped) I was like";4;" so, it was a very succesful piece without even needing like.. guts and brains exploded to the side or INTENSE blood. =< I could feel the pure torment, defeat, and.. well.. forgive me but I felt shame as well.

You have to remember though that no lone person can represent a country. This is just my take on it but; I don't think the creator meant to like..try and lump nations into lone characters. Like...you have to look at the characters as well... idk. Chracters. Even though the events were real, like... idk how to say it. I look at Tino as Tino, not Finland as a whole but rather a Finnish person. I know that the history and dialgous are made for you to believe that those people are the country but you can't look at that. Also, even just searching around... you can never get a country's culture without having been there. Though there is information on the web... well.. even I, before meeting actual Finns, found nothing about this stuff online. So, the creator was looking at the face value of the history rather than... emotional? I hate to rant but... ya. I like bringing both sides to the table. Don't get me wrong though, you bring up great points and you have in fact ruined SuFin for me which means that I do in fact support what you're saying. And I did, in fact, like Sweden before this. Though I realize that not every Swede is like this... o: I still get a feeling of unease.

Yeah, I'm sorry if I said that o-o;; it might've slipped. Finland is part of, *don't shoot me*, Nordic Europe..no? D=!

And thank you for ranting because I really enjoy Finland and I do want to learn its culture so.. it's really nice to get the inside scoop. We have..er..had since school just let out... a Finnish exchange student but she was snobby and a bit unapproachable so.. I couldn't really ask her about her country :<.

So ya, feel free to rant at me about Finland =D cus it excites me. Well, not the sad parts but just Finland in general. It sounds like a lovely place and I think I'm, well..actually 99.9% sure that Finland will go in my number #1 slot for my 3 choices of where they're sending me for foreign exchange.

@x@ oh shiz...hope this long comment doesn't bug you. But it was sooo moving. Your picture has stayed with me like.. since I saw it. @-@

Yes, I understand that after all the creator's Japanese and they don't have such a good knowledge of the other world as far as I know. Especially Finland, being such a small and not very popular country though we get our share of Japanese tourists heading for Lapland.

And don't worry, you didn't call us a part of Scandinavia, just felt like saying it since I like to blurt it out a lot :lol: But yes, you got it right! Nordic Europe! That's what we are. Though we're not a part of Scandinavia, we're certainly one of the nordic countries like Iceland.

I really wonder from what part of our country your transfer student came from. Though we're a small country with only 5 million finns we're well divided when it comes to locality. I'm from the east (well, south-east) and we're rather open and talkative, especially in the north. Your snobby and unapproachable girl sounds like someone from our capital city or south-west (I hope nobody from there sees me saying this :shh: ).

If you ever decide to come to Finland, beware for a culture shock.. though I'm sure it'll be fun, at least all our school's exchange students enjoyed their time, made lots of friends and learned our language. I've been told it's really hard to learn it though and I'm sure it is, since even so many native people from my age group have major problems with the grammar. But foreigners tend to tell us that Finnish is the most beautiful language in the world, I have no idea if it's true though.

And you don't bug me at all, I love talking about my country with foreigners! A lot of Finns have this self-hating attitude so they just like to shit all over their own culture and people. The only thing I can't stand is the strong socialism in our country. Kinda like communism, kinda like capitalism, but it's picked out the worst aspects of them both. Otherwise I like our little place here up north.

Uhm.. Tempere.. is that how you spell it? Or was it.. a city near Tempere? Something about..Nokia..and Tempere =(. Though, she is an exchange student. Most of them "Daddy, send me abroad =D" "whatever you want sweety" whereas I am earning all 6000$ or more of it. Not fun. =(;; But it'll be worth it.

That's why I'm studying it now, which gives me a year because the more I learn here the more I can learn there. Plus I'm trying to get the sounds into my ears by listening to like, nonstop Finnish radio and whatnot.

o: Native speaker.. right xD. o: Hmm, ya. I'm not sure if, *don't hit me cus I don't mean this rude* beautiful is the word. Well, it's beautiful of course but personally there's just SOMETHING about your language that is like... crack for my ears. It's so smooth and expressive. and it's sooo pretty and foreign looking in written form. I enjoy seeing all the "ä Ä ö Ö.." idk why but I just do. But ya, I've studied Mandarin (Chinese), a little Swedish, attempted Thai, intermediate in spoken Japanese, attempted Korean, attempted French, and attempted Spanish and I must say that Finnish is hard. The rules are straight forward and make sense but.. it's just..idk @x@ confusing!

._. I know how that is however can you blame me with America's dumb and big-bad-boss rep? Like..I'm embarrassed to live here. However I also just..know that I don't belong here. I'm like.. not American, not in my heart.

So where exactly doyou live?

Oh, Tampere! I guessed right! It's in the west just as I predicted :D It's one of our biggest cities.

I adore your will to study our language, I once met a native Canadian who spoke fluent Finnish and it was a blast since they don't teach our language abroad a lot do they? I only study German, Swedish and English but I'd love to learn Korean too.

And yes I must warn you a lot of Finns hate Americans but they don't persecute them if they meet one though. I've never hated your country since you've given so much to our whole world and I actually love your culture and country in general. Don't be embarrassed of your heritage, I've always liked the way Americans believe in freedom and individuality. Here in Finland free speech isn't as appreciated and the media is run by one big corporation (YLE) that pretty much decides how people should think and not much alternatives are given. Lately there's been a big fuss over the topic here and they're even starting to censor the internet (I'm dead serious). That's the communist part of our politics.

Nope, they don't. I've searched and searched for colleges and high schools that teach it and I have found nothing. So.. really, it's sad, but I'm learning out of a teach yourself book which is hard because you really have to WANT to learn the language; which I 100% do.

D= That's going to be hard. To be honest, I am very much American. I, though embarassed to admit, will even fight my own parents on issues if I believe in them. I also try not to judge people from other countries because heck, you can't jugde over 100,000 people just on a few stereotypes. If I dislike a Finn its for their particular personality, their (Awesome) Finnish..ness... has nothing to do with my like or dislike. I'm fully prepared in that everywhere I go people will hate me simply for where I came from but... o: I wouldn't want to be friends with someone who's willing to judge me in the first place.

You can never judge a place before going there so.. o= even if I do go to Finland, I'll hate the none free speech but at least I'll have tried it before I judged it. @-@

I also live in a quiet town in America, our state isn't widely known about so ya. Plus, I live in New mexico, I have both Mexican and American culture so.. I'm not the stereotypical Californian. I guess, if I were Finnish you could say I'm more in the upper region versus say, Helsinki and Tempere. So.. hopefully your people will enjoy my particular culture.
