Schooling: High School then I did community college and took as many social science classes as possible. I participated in classes such as Muslim Studies, Global Religions, and Abnormal Psychology. My sociology class is how I met my husband. I interviewed him for a paper on Norwegian religions.

BF: I have several close friends. I am amazed at how awesome they are and different they can be from me but still respect me. I love them very much.

Political ideology:  I don’t understand the political system in Norway very well. I’m like a conservative moderate socialist.

Religion: Christian, with Catholic and Orthodox parts. I am quite old school.

Tattoos: Marimekko Unikko print tattoo in green, one I got at 18 years old, then the “til the love runs out” I mentioned before. I want more all over. ❤

Piercings: Ears!  Several on my ears. I had my nose done but a particular person hated it and I took it out. I might get a Medusa or a Monroe and my belly button. It all depends. I think long and hard about these things. I need to make sure I can get a job.

Languages: English, some Spanish, a little French, learning Norwegian Bokmål

Reason behind your blog’s name: Stiina is my childhood nickname given to me by my mother. It is also a nod to my love of the Finnish people because it is oddly a Finnish name!

Why you blog: I want to document my integration into Norwegian culture and teach about Norway. I really want to write a book but a blog is much easier.
