So i live in Jõgeva/Estonia. Maybe you've heard of it.Maybe you've seen this image on 9gag:

The post on 9gag was about the school logo. It's just not right , lolz. The image became quite viral around the world.

Here's a full view on our little town:

The town is a quite bombhole , what they call it , but it's quiet. No crime , no problems. Our small country is not in the area , where destructing earthquakes or vulcanos can apploy. That's what i love about it.

The population of the town is only like 10.000+ people. Kinda quiet , eh?
Here's a picture of the latest event, which took place in our city center:

Here's a picture of a cool event , which took place in our city stadium:

Also we have this statue called "Hea linna vaim" [Translated: The good town spirit] , which "brings the town kindness & generousness" Also there's the town flag next to it:

In jõgeva we always have once in a year the "Küüslaugu festival". Translated: "Garlic Festival" ,which really sucks ,but ey. It's national so many people gather around. Here's the garlic festival's logo. A weird old man wearing a garlic hat:

Kill me.

Also did i mention jõgeva is the "Coldness city" in estonia? The cold record was -48 degress on winter 2001.
Pretty cold , eh?
Well now you guys know more about where i live. :) It's kinda small & not so great like places you guys live , but i'm proud :)

I guess the county Estonia is full of adventures! :)
Nice country!

But the school logo, this is not right. Many people think that guy is peeing on the cow, or something different. :ninja:

Actually it's a national legend "Kalevipoeg' with his horse. People usually think they are "doing it". The logo seems like that because it's very old. They have tried to replace it ,but they don't have enough cash.

Estonia isn't very adventurous. Its boring sometimes. Also it's not a big town. It's almost the smallest town in Estonia. So they buildings are small.

Well when im growing up , im outta here. There's many reasons.
-It's boring.
-It's hard to find a job.
-Our minimum salary is 250+ euros. And max is 2000. (Pretty hard to keep some money for like family trips)

Possibly going to Australia:)
