Good luck!

Meanwhile, I'll start in adult college at the end of this month. Hoping to get my abitur in two years. I'll be most likely majoring in English so expect it to improve considerably in the future.

I'll also have to take quite a lot of courses in maths, Finnish, history, physics, chemistry, geography, health education (or human ed, whatever the translation is) and so on.

To get my abiture (equivalent to high school diploma in US), I'll be taking final exams in English (major), Finnish, maths (I'll be taking minor course there as most of the advanced mathematics makes no sense to me) and one of history, physics, chemistry, geography, health ed, philosophy, biology or citizenship education. Out of those, history seems most appealing to me but it's also the most difficult as it contains six courses and a lot of knowledge that's not in the books is required. Health ed is the easiest but I'll make my choice later on.

Hoping to succeed, I'm already 20 and most of the people my age already have a second degree education (either high school diploma or a profession). If I do succeed in getting my abiture I'm qualified to attend either a university or a polytechnic, out of which the latter is the more appealing option.

In Finland, do they have Abitur parties and pranks leading up to and after the test? I know they do it in Germany.

Not where I'm going, adult college differentiates from high school in quite a lot of ways.

I've been 6'3" or taller since I was 15, I'm used to being awkward in public. That's not a concern.

There is a pretty big community center kinda place nearby, where my high school hockey team played. I'll probably look them up first. Thanks for the input!

That is another major concern. I've got some pretty solid skates, some nice gloves, and that's about it.


Thank again for all the input folks! Greatly appreciated!

Edit: aaaaaand my local place doesn't seem to differentiate between kids and adults... That seems odd.

The one piece of equipment that I skimped on that i wish I hadn't when i first started out?

Shins.

As a noob, you are going to fall a lot during a game. While a learn to skate program will teach you how to fall on your buttocks instead of your tail bone... Eventually, you are going to cram the knee hard during a fall. And I mean... hard.

I am 6'2". My first pair of shins were cheapo Easton S3s. I could take a puck off of them fine, but when I was upended and came down hard on my knee?

Ugh. I skated off fine, and skated the rest of the pickup game, but holy hell. I got home and my knee was twice the size, red, blue and ugly yellow. The cheapo shins don't have a lot of padding on the inside...

I picked up a pro level set of Eastons off of Total Hockey red tag clearance. While I haven't taken as big of an impact on my knees since, I have run into the boards at full speed with them a couple of times. With the amount of padding in them, no harm done.

You have to call. I was shy about it at first, put it off a while, and then just sucked it up and called. With my health issues, it was better that way anyway. They tailored the program for me, in order to get me to my goals.

I may be a "beginner" at hockey, but I'm one of the few players at my level that can do crossovers easily.

Most shin pads aren't good for protecting the knees.. I find they're really only good for the Shins..

Hello. My name is Angela, and I'm afraid of toasters. I hate not knowing when the toast is gonna pop up, and every time it does, it scares the #@$! out of me.

Phew...saying that really does make a difference.

Don't worry, you're not alone:




Personally, I think toasters are afraid of me. Then again, so is everybody else if/when I'm cooking. Double so I'm cooking for them.

Is this "Iltalukio" or something else? I might have to look at something similar than this.
