Here temperature seldom drops under zero. I used to be in Scandinavia for a long time and I cannot stand with very cold weather for very long winter.
You are very organized and plan things carefully in advance. It's very important for success. I believe your unselfish helps to other people in this forum will reward someday.
I thinks someone else also interested in your background as me, such as how old... I think you will be much elder than me. I'm 26 yet.
