No boys on the Internet

Yesterday I had planned to go swimming, but in the end I didn't. I decided to head to this youth hangout named Tyttöjen Talo ("house for girls"), it's a small apartment in an office house in Hakaniemi, Helsinki, and it's only for girls; no boys allowed!

There are activity groups like baking, yoga and such. Mainly it's just a hangout, where you can sit around and have coffee, tea or cocoa and talk to other girls and such. There are also counselor you can talk to, and doctors and nurses who can advise you about sex and sexuality.

I just sat at a table and wrote into my diary, and left in high spirits. I am going to visit the place many times in the future.
