These kindred spirits have been my models since I bought my first DSLR as a 14 year old. Hence, throughout the years, I’ve collected numerous of moments, starring them as the main characters. Thank you mamma, pappa, Jessica & Jacob (a tad reluctant at first, but he loosened up) for letting me shove lenses extremelyContinue reading “Involuntary Models”
I’ve been to Italy, in Padergnone. I biked there. Surrounded by mountains, fluffy trees sprinkled in green, lakes of emerald green, we flew forward. At least it felt like it. A sensation of freedom, one that got me all happy-tears-eyed. I looked at my father and brother biking before me and I, as I oftenContinue reading “Freedom on a bike”
Summer flies to foreign countries the spirits of autumn settle in People, kissed by a healing wind waiting for the harsh winter to begin as the sun enters hibernation Swedes work on their winter accusations but in their minds live warm memories of Summer fragments that will keep them together
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”
I’ve stumbled upon a bunch of cute animals lately, here’s an excerpt from the encounters. This is Mila, named after Mila Kunis, she belongs to Nils mother and sister. What a stunner eh? These summer-cats had it great compared to all the summer-cats here in Sweden that are bought by families, brought out to theirContinue reading “The Four-legged Ones”
Last week was spent at Skäret, Skåne, 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 Skäret”
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… 😉 Nils was game-leader and we played burnball, catching applesContinue reading “Midsummer Madness”
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”
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”
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”
Just arrived home from Arabba, Italy. One week with splendid weather, great skiing, shit tonnes of food, a lot of red wine, family and extended family. I’ve shared a room with my siblings and it’s been a treat to reconnect a little. Because even though we’ve grown up together and know each other on a deepContinue reading “La Famiglia en Italia”
Have I told you about that morning the 29th of January when heaven separated the world in ice and fire? How the sun sprinkled gold over everyone who witnessed it, and made a promise to the dead grass that spring will come and you will be in full bloom again, shimmering of green. Just wait. Continue reading “When Heaven Split in Ice & Fire”
I guess I could write something melodramatic, with a touch of poetry, about how beautiful this afternoon was and how the crisp colors of nature made fireworks in my mind. BUT, instead I’ll let you see for yourself.
We celebrated mini-christmas in Jämtland – my paradise on earth. On our way back home we witnessed an otherworldly phenomenon: a halo. My father was clever enough to realize the strange rainbow in -17 degrees would become a halo and I was stubborn enough to force him to come to a stop. Two of the other photos areContinue reading “Winter Magic- We Saw a Halo”
A couple of weeks back my world was terribly, hauntingly grey.
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”
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.”
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”
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”
Last Friday was hilarious. Me and my team presented our manifesto = guidelines for how we want our time at Hyper to be and how we should be towards each other. An example: “The Mullet” – Business in the front, party in the back. Ok, two examples because they are funny and legit: “Eat challengeContinue reading “Fun times at Hyper + Our Manifesto”
Cut me hair off a couple of weeks ago. “How does it feel?” people ask and all I reply is: “Freedom”. I can run around without getting hair in my face, I can workout without using a tuft. Another more psychological aspect of it is that I no longer “hide” behind long hair.
Last Monday our program managers at Hyper Island gave us a brief. The brief was to create a list of the one hundred companies which we find most attractive to work for. Along with that our task was to create an event for Friday. Needless to say, 260 brains started whizzing and buzzing. Then our PM’sContinue reading “HI100”
The 15th of August I, quite spontaneously, joined some of my classies to go to a one-day festival at Grinda. I had no idea what to expect and I guess I never could have expected what came before me anyway. The day was amazing, a brilliant Swedish summer’s day, which turned into evening with booze andContinue reading “Into The Way Out Secret Cosmic Grinda Island”
Dad, Jake and I headed out on a perseid hunt last Thursday. Perhaps we went out too early, but to be the peak of the perseid-shower it was kind of a disappointment. Except from that I got to test my camera on a starry sky and I was baffled once again by this amazing machine.Continue reading “Perseid “Shower””
Mamma sits up on young wild horses and challenges herself everyday, pushing her boundaries with those big creatures. She is so brave and makes me ridiculously proud. She ignites my own will to constantly challenge myself, no matter what it is. The best gift a daughter can get.
I’ve always been a fan of strong colors and sharp contrasts in my photos. Recently I’ve been forcing myself to try out new photo styles/edits to see what comes out of it. The never-ending exploration of photography continues. These photos below are victims of my exploration, surrealism if you like, where I want the observer toContinue reading “Surrealism Photo Experiment”
I was lucky last Sunday. I did not want to spend the day in nervous-excitement over beginning Hyper the day after, doing nothing. But luckily Elsa was heading to her family on Ekerö and I got to come with her! Off we went and when we arrived the sun was shining, everything good, till’ BOOM theContinue reading “The day before Hyper”
Lina came to me Saturday night. After a couple of hours of talking about everything new for me and about how she learns new things as a summer-stewardess I decided to go take a swim. Lina joined and after a while a couple of boys flew past us on their bikes. I said “just likeContinue reading “An evening of unexpected events”
