Music, my day saver

Didn't get that much sleep last night due to my newborn baby and FIFA 2010. This morning I was in this bad mood which happens easily when I don't sleep enough. After surviving breakfast and other, I finally got in to my car.

I stopped for a second to think that this shouldn't be the way to start the day. There must be a way to turn the day around. I plugged my phone to car stereos and started go through my music collection to find something to cheer me up. I picked upped something that I know has made me smile previously (new Katy Perry) and started the way to work.

It really works. Music has lot of impact to mood. I bet there are studies about this, but at least my own experience is that this works. When I'm heading to play some sports, I have music to get to me prepared, when I want to concentrate at work, there's a music for that also.

I'm just happy that I was able to turn my morning around. Maybe the Finnish morning sun had some effect too..

World cup time!!

It's nice to be a Finn at World cup time. We've never made to play the games, so you can just enjoy the games without this stress about how well your team is playing.

What I've always done is to pick up the teams that plays the pretties football and have the most interesting players and live through the matches with those favorite teams. This kind of gives this little feeling to matches, but still you are not that disappointed if your selected team doesn't win.For me this is perfect way to enjoy the games.

I haven't received my sport magazine for this week with hopefully the world cup extra, but with first look here's my favorite's:

Netherlands - Just due the players with amazing attacking capabilities like Sneijder and Robben.

Chile - Haven't seen any of their games, but stories tell that there will be happening a lot when these guys play.

Spain - Winner candidate number one in my paper.

Argentina - Amazing players, "amazing"coach. Anything from disaster to finals.

Whole Group G - Toughest group plus North-Korea which no one knows much. All games can be really interesting.

Eagerly waiting for kick off.
