Between the 14th to 16th of June we had our graduation. It started off on Wednesday with a reunion-breakfast. It was nuts seeing everyone again after 7 months apart. I was nervous, completely overly excited and of course, very happy. We did our internship-presentations and Chris’s and mine made people laugh a lot = success!Continue reading “Our Hyper Island Graduation”
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”
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”
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.
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”
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”
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”
You heard me, I invested in a new camera. Expensive as…but I figured that for me to amp up my photography-game it was time to put my old loyal friend to the side, Canon EOS 400D. This is my first fullformat camera and I am beyond excited to start taking photos with it. Unfortunately myContinue reading “CANON EOS 6D – Stepping up my game”
