Personal information

Name: Heidi Pokela. "German pet form of Adelheid meaning 'loyal and kind'. Adapts to events without difficulty, lively and extremely trustworthy friend." "Surname coming from the 17th century, translates from Swedish 'Björknäs' to either birch isthmus or birch cape."
Nick: Heiska might be the most well-known. At the university I also go with Poksu and Poke, the latter amusing me greatly because of its many meanings.
Description: Artistic, calm, extremely patient, fair, faithful, hard-working, intuitive, keeps her distance, moody, optimistic, picky, person with a sense of humor, polite, quiet, rich imagination, stubborn.
Weapon Arsenal: Different Sakura, Faber Castell, Stabilo and Staedtler pens and all the other drawing and painting tools, such as sheets of plywood, window tapes, staple guns, mask fluids and surgeon knives. Because of 22 Wacom Intuos A5 tablet was included in to weapons.

Date of Birth: July 7th 1986, but you can send me presents around the year. I have experienced 07/07/07 day.
Nationality: Finn. I was born and brought up in Central Ostrobothnia, but now I live in Eastern Lapland.
IQ: Unofficially about 136. ;)
Mental Age: 27 - 34. Oops, this one got little too old.
Horoscope: Cancer and fire tiger.
Bloodtype: O+, blood has been donated 7 times, total 3150 ml.

Height: 168 cm.
Weight: Garfield. :P
Hair: Original color could be named as "light golden brown", but to me it's dark brown. But not dark enough and I have to constantly dye it darker. Haircut is short and it just gets shorter as years go by. At this rate I will be bald in few years.
Eyes: Mostly blue and gray, but there's also a little bit green. I'm nearsighted and I have spiffy black Art Education teacher glasses.
*Earrings: I have four safety pin shaped silver earrings and three stainless steel rings with a closing ball and a hanging cone, so in total seven earrings. People, especially children, ask if the safety pin ones are real. If they were, my earlobes would have fallen off in a matter of days.

Education: I passed matriculation exam and graduated from my home town's Upper secondary school in 2005 at the age of 19. I started my Art Education studies at the University of Lapland in 2006 at the age of 20.
Future Plans: My second try was a success and now I study Art Education as my major. I have no idea about my minor, but who cares about it now when there are years before I graduate as a Master of Arts. I'm also interested in animation, but you can't make money with it here in Finland, which is sad.

Loves: Manga and anime, movies, food (that's just natural), extreme shopping, winter, honest and happy people, who are trustwhorty. I tend to have a weird relationship with helium balloons. And yeah, I like cats and kittens which are one of my greatest weakness'.
Hates: Underestimating people, useless complaining and arrogance. Flies, black flies, bees, spiders and all the other I-will-fly-straight-at-yer-face bugs must be swatted dead, especially during summer. Springs with sleet and mud cause wet and muddy pantlegs, making me more than angry. I can't stand flipped mangas, because flipping ruins their art. And what's wrong with translators (not scanlators) who erase all honorifics and change original sound effects into ugly XL ones?

All kinds of lists

List of wanted items
One can want even the moon from the sky, but getting what one wants is not guaranteed. In my case lack of extra cash and lovely remote Finland prevent me from buying what I want. And where would I put all that stuff anyway?

IRL Friends, alphabetical order:
-
Anneli, quite "original" girl no matter how you look at her. She loves music. I met her first time when we started to go to school. We graduated in same time and now we see each other whenever possible.
-
Erja, my big brother's fiancee, so she represents older and also feeble generation.
-
Uni. Lapland Art Education students, especially those who started their studies in 2006.
-
Milla, whom I met through Anneli when we were 13 or 14 years old. Three of us had a helluva lot of fun all the way till we graduated. We mostly talk about food and baking, even though I'm not that good in the latter. But I have now improved my skills. :) We also like traveling.

URL Friends, alphabetical order:
-
Arska, drools over and draws same bishies as me.
-
Milou, traveling baker whom I also know in IRL.
-
Sayna*, one of my best links to Kansas City and also known in IRL.
-
Suvi, soulmate when it comes to anime and manga. We share a few yaoi pairings which sometimes may lead us into perverted conversations. I have also met her twice.

Other

Nosebleed: Ewan McGregor. New ones may come when it's time for them. A man with strong personality and dark, short hair seems to be greatest weakness. Bishies are in their own class. ;)
