Insights with great impact, drawn from tiny moments

The four of us sat in an Airbnb bed, freshly arrived into an Amsterdam in February shroud, sipping Cava and red wine. A constellation of friends that has not been obvious but rather worked on. Connected through our eagerness to connect, out of curiosity for one another. Sharing memories of current and former boyfriends throughContinue reading “Insights with great impact, drawn from tiny moments”

Party in the Park

Nils and I traveled home from Sk√•ne to attend Ash’s and Veronica’s massive messer. We were so hyped that we even ditched our parents meeting each other for the first time… Not good, but it was for a good cause ūüėČ The party started during the day and continued till’ late. Nima was well-dressed perContinue reading “Party in the Park”

Our Hyper Island Graduation

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”

36 Squeeze Meter Party

Last weekend Nils and I threw a moving-in party, which I named, cleverly, (if I may say so myself) “36 Squeeze Meter Party”. We had around 40 people here and the night was a blast. Some friends brought a smoke machine which altered the experience and turned our apt into a club. In the midstContinue reading “36 Squeeze Meter Party”

Fun Friends and Urban Burners

These past couple days have been amazing, despite feeling completely blue Sat-Wednesday. But then on Wednesday a bunch of my friends, from all different kind of circles, met up at Carmen. We said goodbye to one Indian who’s going to Amsterdam and Hi to our long lost friends that have been back in India forContinue reading “Fun Friends and Urban Burners”

A quiet Sunday

Sharing the sofa with Zampa, music flowing around me and the cold weather is intrusive from the outside. Mamma was here a minute ago and we shared a coffee and caught up. Absolutely love living in walking distance from all of my family. My mental state is a bit fuzzy because Johanna and I hadContinue reading “A quiet Sunday”

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”

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”

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”

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”

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”

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”

La Famiglia en Italia

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”

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”

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”

Capable or Incapabale of Creating Without Fearing

I wake up too late, between 9 and 10 every day. Apparently I’m turning off the alarm whilst sleeping. I try not to get anxious and tell myself my body and soul needs it. It’s the first time in five months that I have days when I can do whatever I want and it makesContinue reading “Capable or Incapabale of Creating Without Fearing”

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…”

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;”

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…”

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”

HI100

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”
