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”

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”

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”

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”

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”

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”

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”

Chic Peas Dressed in Coconut Milk

Apparently I live in an oasis of contradictions. I got home after having bought my last christmas gifts and was met by a big fat piece of pig, all greased up with mustard and spices, lying on the sink. I on the other hand was on a mission – I was about to cook myContinue reading “Chic Peas Dressed in Coconut Milk”

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…”

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”

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”

Does the body have limits?

Yesterday a friend of mine asked me to join her crossfit-program. 10min x2 First 10: 10 Tuck(?) jumps 10 dips 20 kb swings Second 10: 40 overhead lunges w 10kg 30 box-jumps 20 mountain climbers 10 pushups 5 minutes into the first set, I was doomed. My pulse was raging. Every time I stood upContinue reading “Does the body have limits?”

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”

Into The Way Out Secret Cosmic Grinda Island

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”

A Lazy Happy Content Wreck

Wow. What a week. I am too tired/hungover to write something even close to intelligent or reflective. But all and all, I could not be happier with how this week flourished into something ‘utterly brilliant I must say’! All my classies are amazing in their own way’s and the school is beyond anything I’ve everContinue reading “A Lazy Happy Content Wreck”

Last Saturday

Ebba’s birthday + her moving away gathering. She’s spreading her wings and heads in the direction of the north to study. May the White Walkers forever stay away from you. It was one of those nights with old friends and new friends. ….with discussions on heavier topics – feminism, sexual abuse, anxiety, depression. …. withContinue reading “Last Saturday”

High in spirit

Back in my room, staring at the rain pouring rigorously, landing softly onto the newly sprung apples.¬† What a change of environment and surroundings can do to one’s soul. With high spirits, tanned skin and sun in our eyes we landed here in Sweden. With us brought we the tingling¬†knowledge of that 4 hours fromContinue reading “High in spirit”

Mallorca Madness Delirium

2.45 Monday morning I got up. 2h before that I went to sleep… The flight to Mallorca was spent sleepless and therefore I spent the whole of Monday in a sleepy-haze. It was totally worth it though, considering the reason for my late bed-time was a 3h walk through the Park with Sonji. We couldn’tContinue reading “Mallorca Madness Delirium”

Gold – azurblue – sun&run

I dive into the water, everything quiet, tiny¬†innocent jellyfishes stroking my body. I pick one up, look at it’s strange lump of a body and sends it back into the wild ocean. I run on the beach in my bikini, fall down into the stinking algae, scrape my knee, get back up and do cartwheels.Continue reading “Gold – azurblue – sun&run”

Days filled with fun, summer-time!

These last couple of days have been jam-packed with truly¬†fun and heart-warming happenings. Friends en masse, laughter, sun and fun! To remember it all…photobomb: Started out with a fun night with a lady who has been home-bound for the last 2 years because she has gotten a tiny lil’ smiling cutiepie – a son thatContinue reading “Days filled with fun, summer-time!”
