Finnish Eating

Meet Mark Jackson III. He's an American student studying at the University of Oulu, in the field of architecture. He admires Oulu and the residents living there, since it's such a large city at such a high latitude, but he's not yet ready to stop clinging to his old American lifestyle. 

Since it's a laid-back Saturday for Mark, pancakes smothered with luxurious (and real) maple syrup is served for breakfast, along with a serving of delectable orange juice and a side of blueberry yogurt. He tries to quickly gobble down breakfast and head out to to Oulu's vibrant city centre for sightseeing, but he can't help but appreciate the warmth he feels that the cozy weekend radiates. Mark tries to "Finnish Eating" but he also can't help but go over plans in his excited mind he wishes to attempt for this pocket of freedom in the exhilarating week. So he slowly and carefully takes a sip of cool juice as the light of the day illuminates his skin.

    Thanks Lydia. I'm not actually Finnish at all. I'm actually Canadian. The person in the story is actually supposed to be an American/Canadian student studying at the University of Oulu, however, I used to think a large majority of people—even during the days of my old account—were American, so I just presumed that the "majority" I thought existed would view that they would be eating American cuisine the American way so they would eat pancakes for breakfast. But now, I see that is not the case and that Roomstyler has users all of the world and is quite diverse. I think I'll make 3rd Person Stories from now on, and make a specific character that is from a specific country, so the story can apply to everyone instead of a presumed "majority". I'll make sure to edit this story so it can apply to all Roomstyler users!

    Ok, so what's it with the pancakes? Pancakes and maple syrup are part of an American breakfast, so how come it is mentioned in your story and corrected by Janip? Are you not Finnish after all?
