2017 starts today

My 2017 starts today. Been slacking away since 2016 ūüėČ Let me share a joke: Nils woke up with a sore throat today and when he said: “It feels like I have a ton of snot in my¬†throat” I answered “Mmmm, I love that feeling of eating locally produced.” Probably my best joke so farContinue reading “2017 starts today”

Rapid Production

Hi! Last week Chris and I recorded a long sketch, which later turned out to be extremely unfocused. Or, more specifically: I was not in focus. Christmas-holiday’s were coming up around the corner and we needed films to push out during our break. We had to trash the film and come up with a newContinue reading “Rapid Production”

Merry Christmas

It’s christmas morning and Nils just left for work. I’m drinking coffee in bed, listening to my new Dali-Katch loudspeaker which I just got from Nils. He’s taught me to appreciate good sound and now I feel like just sitting here all day, “Dali-Katch¬†and chill”. The sound is so clear.¬† I’ve been so eager toContinue reading “Merry Christmas”

19 drafts in my pocket

I’ve 19 drafts lying around in this blog, 9 of which were created this week. I can’t seem to find my words, nor my language, nor my inspiration or flow. Perhaps I’m encumbered with self-doubt or some other human annoyance. Last night, Chris and I went on christmas-holiday. We celebrated our first month working togetherContinue reading “19 drafts in my pocket”

Halloween 2016

Nils threw a great halloween-party a couple of weeks back. Trump was there (of course), Kim & Kanye, King and Queen of chess (Nils and I that is), Draco Malfoy, on top of that Britney Spears & Justin Timberlake came all the way from the 90’s! Since we were king and queen of chess IContinue reading “Halloween 2016”

Years on earth: 23

Today is my birthday. I’ve now been an earthling for 23 years and I must say, it’s very neat to be alive despite all the¬†inexplicable¬†things that are happening in the world. I had a birthday-dinner last Saturday which turned out to be a really fun and sweet evening. I know nothing that’s better than havingContinue reading “Years on earth: 23”

Relationship Paranoia

Hello there! My partner in crime, Chris, and I, have now released our first project that we made single-handedly together as Yadi Yada Pictures. It turned out to become more of a shortfilm than a sketch, I guess that leaves us at “a longer sketch”. It was a blast filming it, equally fun releasing itContinue reading “Relationship Paranoia”

Tom Odelling

Last night I had a pleasant reunion with Tom Odell, this thanks to Nils as I got the concert for my¬†birthday. ¬†The first time I saw Mr. Odell¬†was in New York when Elena and I sneaked into a dinner-concert and got ourselves a table and some wine. I was completely compelled by his stage-presence andContinue reading “Tom Odelling”

Exciting week ahead

New week. New adventures. So, what’s up?¬† This week is going to be filled with work 9-4/5/6 with Chris – internship starts NOW. He’s here in 30min btw and I am still struggling with getting sleepdust out of my eyes. It is so difficult to get up nowadays when the world¬†is pitch black. Tonight, myContinue reading “Exciting week ahead”

Running our own bizniz

I’m going to be that Swede now, nagging about the weather. BUT JEEEZ?! I don’t think the sun rose today, it’s been raining continuously since 8AM, it’s dark outside and it’s 3.35pm, remind me again of why I live here? My week has been absurdly calm. My partner in crime is ill so we haven’tContinue reading “Running our own bizniz”

Film Adventure

My coffee is getting cold on my bedside-table. I’m underneath two covers¬†in a hotel-room in Norrk√∂ping. I’ve just had breakfast with the two actors I’m filming with during this shortfilm. It’s my friend’s shortfilm and I’m proud of her, her first film and I am a part of it! As we walked home from setContinue reading “Film Adventure”

Brace yourselves…

I’m physically exhausted. Yesterday I ran like a maniac, 3 km fast warm-up, then doing 8x400m √° 1.30min (fast for me because I’m out of shape, the WR is 47.60 seconds so there’s that¬†comparison for you), then wrapped it up with 2km jogging. Today Sonja and I went boxing and now I’m laying here withContinue reading “Brace yourselves…”

Long time no see

Been up in my head lately and haven’t been able to put words to my thoughts, but I’m thinking I’m done with that now. Sick of thinking, better start doing instead. Hence I’m back here in my little digital home. These past weeks I’ve been partying a lot, held our final presentation on our finalContinue reading “Long time no see”

Changing times

I’ve been through a whirlwind of thoughts these past couple of weeks. In particular it’s been about one decision. Negotiating with myself what the right move is, measuring pros and cons, seeking advice from everywhere. I’ve been searching for hints, something which could confirm or deter my choice. Then I took a decision. We’re goingContinue reading “Changing times”

A day of everything

Started this day off with a casting for a commercial. I got to run around on a basket-court and felt very much at home (not with the basket, but the running). It’s my first casting where I get to be physically active and truly felt like the acting¬†came more naturally since movement is kind of¬†engravedContinue reading “A day of everything”

Summer Memories & the complexity of memory

Summers tend to appear blurry, days vaporize into each other and create fuzzy memories. When did I do what? What happened when? Who was I with? ¬†Thank you Steve Jobs for creating the smartphone so I can document whatever I want to in a jiffy and remember. Speaking of this, I wonder if I, dueContinue reading “Summer Memories & the complexity of memory”

A wonderful place called Sk√§ret

Last week was spent at Sk√§ret, Sk√•ne, with Nils family. I was excited and a tad skittish about hanging out with his family for the first time, but it all went fine without any major disasters. They took me on tours around the surroundings in his fathers Jaguar Mark ¬†II from 1960-something, which was theContinue reading “A wonderful place called Sk√§ret”

Midsummer Madness

Arabo had been planning our midsummer feast for a whole week and when Midsummer’s day came, he, Pako and Sonja rolled into my kitchen with SO MUCH FOOD! The rest of the crew came at 4 and so we started eating + drinking en masse… ūüėČ Nils was game-leader and we played burnball, catching applesContinue reading “Midsummer Madness”

Mama’s Birthday

Two weeks back I had quite the party-week. It started off with a club-night with A and A, and the day after all of the fam + extended fam met up at Strandbryggan for lunch and celebrated mamma’s 54th birthday. The week then continued with a night at V’s (previous post), a rave on FridayContinue reading “Mama’s Birthday”

A magical night at Veronica’s

My friend Veronica hosted a dinner at her parents house at the most lush, serene, beautiful location. I was filled with joy over friends, jumping on a trampoline, the weather and all the other feelings that come with summer. Here are some memories from those 18h.   At random times half of the crew disappearedContinue reading “A magical night at Veronica’s”

I believe I’m living a dream

These summer-days are very dreamy. Not because the weather is good, because it ain’t. but because I get to hang out with friends at great locations, spend time with my family and kiss my boyfriend whenever I want to. I’m lagging behind in my very important blogging about my life, because life is running soContinue reading “I believe I’m living a dream”

Summer Indulgence

I’ve spent today in hangover heaven (read: hell). Had almost all of my girls here last night and we ate, drank wine and cackled away. Around 11 Anna and I headed to Karusell with another friend and danced away like maniacs, without inhibitions. When they closed we headed of to F12 and negotiated with theContinue reading “Summer Indulgence”

Hotel J with J and N

He told me not to book anything in¬†on¬†the 12th of June and let me live in oblivion till’ five days before when he¬†revealed that we were going on a staycation in Nacka. Met him up by Dramaten, with butterflies in my belly and was stoked about going on a mini-adventure. We took the boat outContinue reading “Hotel J with J and N”

Play Seriously

I had my assessment today and it bugged me, it made me feel inadequate and wrong, lost and unintelligible. Haunted by the feeling of always doing too little, never enough. I structure a routine to fit everything in, ending up with a breakdown and smeary tears. When is “it’s enough” and “how active can oneContinue reading “Play Seriously”

Destruct to reconstruct

This headline could have been the beginning to one of my highly acclaimed poems but nah ūüėČ It’s all about the moving-in chaos that I currently live in. BUT, my bed is here, the sofa arrived today (currently sitting in it m m m), school’s out on Friday and summer is here! Life is friggin’Continue reading “Destruct to reconstruct”

The Youthful Longing for Nothing and More

In Ghana I decided to live my life here in Sweden, more like I did there, which equals spending more money on food, drinks, events, activities, and in return get more experiences and fun-times. These past weeks have been all about sun-bathing (because summer came to Sweden?!?!! WHAT?!) going out, eating out, going to school,Continue reading “The Youthful Longing for Nothing and More”

Thunder outside, thunder within

It‚Äôs twenty-seven degrees in my room, but I am freezing. My body is laying flat in bed and my eyes are forcing me to keep them shut, they are not ready for a new day. I fall into some sort of half-ass sleep where I enter dreamland. I dream of all the experiences I‚Äôve hadContinue reading “Thunder outside, thunder within”

Whiskey & Cards, Wine & Kisses

Out of nowhere a charming human, with eyes as blue as the sea, with tattooed biceps¬†and the giggliest laughter ever heard, entered my life.The past couple of days we’ve taken¬†vacation from our chores and spent time together. I believe that when crushing – give it all the time it needs because it is a rareContinue reading “Whiskey & Cards, Wine & Kisses”
