Butterflies

I’m sitting in my room with my bags packed. My family is chatting downstairs with the clatter of porcelain as background music. Tonight is the event of The Free Projects and it feels like as if we (in the team) are inviting people into our personal bubble. A bubble that hopefully will explode into happiness and excitement tonight.Continue reading “Butterflies”

Mash Up of Lately

Lately I’ve been in school finishing our project for SPP. The presentation was yesterday and we kicked ass! Literally so proud of our team and what we accomplished together. All my classies were out celebrating last night but I was hungover and tired as hell from the night before and stayed in like a trueContinue reading “Mash Up of Lately”

My 2nd Commercial

“Amazing acting” “1 sec of screen-time and she simply nails it!” – Voices on Josefine’s Aftonbladet commercial. I hope you caught the sarcasm! This was my 2nd commerical shoot and what I can take out of my few experiences thus far is that they’re fast-paced, synchronized and incredibly thought-through during production (meaning – nothing isContinue reading “My 2nd Commercial”

Life Right Now

Went to the doctor yesterday and got some hard-core asthma meds. Felt like a real junkie walking out of there with a band-aid, trembling body and a face as pale as the snow with halfmoons of purple beneath my eyes. Today is the first day in a week that I can breathe kind of properlyContinue reading “Life Right Now”

Nature the Charmer

My lungs are waking me up way too early and as a result my mornings become quite eventful. Today I’ve watched a bit of When Harry Met Sally, walked, worked and written. On the 12th of April I begin a writer’s class online, I’m beyond stoked to get to learn more and get counseled throughoutContinue reading “Nature the Charmer”

Souweet Drink & Raw Snickers

I know I’m not feeling well when I don’t even have the energy to think about not feeling well, nor consider a world outside my bedroom. Thanks for the Internet though ❤ My lungs are filled with slime (yeah, you’re welcome for that info), and my left lung is giving me a hard time –Continue reading “Souweet Drink & Raw Snickers”

A Weekend of Variation

My phone is overloaded with messages from Slack, my routines are back in the game, so are my workouts, I’m back with a brilliant team – I’m back in the Hyper bubble, to say the least. Last weekend began with a surprise party for Anna. It’s almost impossible to lie to her, and even moreContinue reading “A Weekend of Variation”

Human; Deactivated

Someone pressed the OFF-button on me this week. I’ve been malfunctioning deep under my duvet. It started Monday, straight after we had gotten our teams for X-program. I was short of breath, not present and everytime I stood up my world was on the verge of becoming pitch black – something I smoothly avoided and keptContinue reading “Human; Deactivated”

An Artsy Interlude

For my birthday I got a visit to Artipelag, which is, as you might have figured out, art in the archipelago – outside of Stockholm.  A huge venue initiated by the founders of Baby Björn.  The light which shot through the enormous panorama windows was magical, as you can see here:            I amContinue reading “An Artsy Interlude”

And just like that…

… one semester at Hyper Island has gone by. Our christmas goodbye was extremely cozy. We checked in with “Strangest christmas tradition” and it was wonderful to get a tiny snippet insight into everyone’s lives. We drew a huge tree on the floor that we got to dress with candles and little notes declaring “My biggest insight”,Continue reading “And just like that…”

A three weeks week

It is Monday, but my head tells me it is time for a weekend. It’s good for me to be at code-camp during the weekends and kind of teach myself to exclude the need for a longer rest from my brain. Because when I’ll start my own company or whatever, then there will be noContinue reading “A three weeks week”

Makers Academy

Today my brother and I have had our first private-tutoring session. We feel very special ;)) Nah, but due to some last minute drop-outs we are the only ones in Code-class. The day has been long and full of information. I’m finally entering the world of back-end. Might be the end of me….But thankfully, ThomasContinue reading “Makers Academy”

Love & other stories

I’m in a new team in school, we’re doing a module called Business & Strategy (something something). We’ll get the brief tomorrow and so far so good, I am extremely curious about what we will be able to create together. After school I ended up on a stroll  at Slussen with a (not really) newly-foundContinue reading “Love & other stories”

The Digital Emotion of a Physical Being

That would be our project for Radiant Equilibrium, our kick-ass exhibition where over a thousand people came. It was something remarkable about letting people interact with what you have created. This is our project-film. Take a minute to watch, it is beautiful! The Digital Emotion of a Physical Being from Carl Sahlin on Vimeo.

Infinitesimal;

1. Immeasurably or incalculably minute. 2. Mathematics: Capable of having values approaching zero as a limit. Despite my English-speaking everyday life I find myself stumbling on words and becoming acute aware of my illiteracy. Project English-improvement has begun. I found this tiny word (above) and it’s beautiful! Now I’m ridiculously aware of what/how I write in this blog-post. Evil-circle.  Last weekend was rather mundane in all it’s uniqueness (please notice allContinue reading “Infinitesimal;”

Hamster-Wheel With a Touch of Rainbow

Added a surprisingly sweet section to my daily-routines on Monday morning, I ran 2km – 10min. Now I’ve done it for three days. I thought my bones would break and my sleepy-head would steer me intro a tree but it’s actually quite pleasant running in a dream-state.  Other than that the days move in a hamster-wheel. UpContinue reading “Hamster-Wheel With a Touch of Rainbow”

VAMPIREEN ’15

Last Saturday I let 60 people into my house to “celebrate” Halloween (Vampireen), or rather; a good reason to throw a party because of all the epic outfits.  I spent all of Friday night cleaning and then all of Saturday fixing with props, snacks, drinks etc. Later that night I stereotyped my way into becomingContinue reading “VAMPIREEN ’15”

If Mozart would go clubbing…

…I wonder if he would feel as misplaced as I did last Saturday when I voluntarily went to Collage? Although he was a little rowdy  rascal wasn’t he? A ladies man of sorts? Maybe he would have loved all those Stureplan-girls who go clubbing in big fat feather jackets (which stroke my sweaty bare skin in theContinue reading “If Mozart would go clubbing…”

Ah, weekend.

Went out last Friday to Bar Nombre at Odengatan (love that place!) and then spent the night in at Elsa’s yesterday, studying. We underwent an intense Friday, my classmates and I, where we unexpectedly made a deep-dive into our ethics and morals. Which sparked some interesting discussions regarding tech/design combined with creating something of value for anContinue reading “Ah, weekend.”

What a Day and Night

Yes! What a day and night! Our exhibition exceeded my expectations by thousands-folds. People were queuing for ages and there were probably around 800-1000 beings who came and saw our projects. My team and I stood and gazed out over our part of the project while people were interacting with it, we were filled withContinue reading “What a Day and Night”

Juggle life

Spent the day at Anna’s. This weekend I’ve been taking it abnormally chill. Felt like I ran into a tiny wall last Wednesday due to too many impressions and a brain which runs on top-speed with too little fuel. So I had to wind down. Spent last night at Sonja’s, with play-dough. Haha. We madeContinue reading “Juggle life”

An involuntary break.

This week has been incredibly intense with #societyhack15. We had 48h to come up with a solution for Transdev on how to develop the public transport, make it more attractive and encourage people to take the train instead of the car. Yesterday they presented the winners and they picked out 2 runner ups and oneContinue reading “An involuntary break.”

10 hours in the E.R

Headed out last night for a run with my friend. I was going to teach him running technique and then do intervals. During the technique lesson I put down my left foot and pushed away and all I heard was: KRAKALAKK KNAK Something went terribly wrong. It hurt of course but it was a surmountableContinue reading “10 hours in the E.R”

DIY Laptop Table

Two hours, several machines, nails and grinding later – and I’ve got myself a perfectly unstable computer-table! My own legs act as stabilizers. Movie-watching in bed has never been easier! What’s more important though is the fact that the computer won’t get over-heated. The main-panel is an old piece of floor and the pillars are two pieces thatContinue reading “DIY Laptop Table”

Somewhere in a pile of a thousand post-its….

…millions of ideas and stress-hormones – you’ll find me. Almost the whole class went to Hornhuset on Tuesday night to support our eccentric, brave, brilliant friend Hank to hear him sing with his band EVA on their first gig ever. He jumped up on the bar, jumped in a bed, took his shirt off (theContinue reading “Somewhere in a pile of a thousand post-its….”

What A Weekend

After a long week at school with projection mapping, arduinos, Light Blue Beans, coding, 3-D printing, and a commercial at that, Friday held the promise of wine and fine company. We started at Queen’s Head, 15 people from the class, then we headed to Lilla Hotellbaren where more people joined and some of my missed friendsContinue reading “What A Weekend”

Commercial Filming

Was yanked out of my sleep at 4.45 and headed to location at Mariatorget to shoot a commercial. A quite easy shoot for me, few lines and what not, and despite that I got a tad nervous before we started. What’s interesting though is that as soon as I step in front of the camera, andContinue reading “Commercial Filming”

My new laptop-backpack by In Bag We Trust

I wanted a laptop-backpack, these were my criterions: – Leather with gold-details – Laptop-pocket – Big enough to fit my work-out clothes + lunchbox – Extra pockets I’m picky and buy things very seldom, therefore my perfectionist-heart took another skip when it found exactly what it had been looking for. I bought this beauty via Etsy from InContinue reading “My new laptop-backpack by In Bag We Trust”

Tangy Lime Tart by Hippie Lane

We celebrated my forever-young father last Sunday and for that occasion I made a raw-cake. This time I did not come up with the recipe myself but created the cake, oh sorry, TART, from the Hippie Lane App. I was sceptic about the lime/avokado mixture but with some extra sweetener and vanilla I got ridContinue reading “Tangy Lime Tart by Hippie Lane”
