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”

First day of school…again

Nervous excitement. Today is the beginning of Graduation Week at Hyper Island. We have not seen each other for 7 months and I am beyond stoked to meet everyone. It’s the end of the beginning! The beginning of a life outside of school. Who knows, maybe I’ll start studying something again or just take coursesContinue reading “First day of school…again”

Long time no see

Been up in my head lately and haven’t been able to put words to my thoughts, but I’m thinking I’m done with that now. Sick of thinking, better start doing instead. Hence I’m back here in my little digital home. These past weeks I’ve been partying a lot, held our final presentation on our finalContinue reading “Long time no see”

A day of everything

Started this day off with a casting for a commercial. I got to run around on a basket-court and felt very much at home (not with the basket, but the running). It’s my first casting where I get to be physically active and truly felt like the acting¬†came more naturally since movement is kind of¬†engravedContinue reading “A day of everything”

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”

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”

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…”

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”

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”

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.”

Fun times at Hyper + Our Manifesto

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”

Presentation Technique

To progress as a human it is fundamental to step out of ones comfort zones. It could be as simple as daring to walk up to a cute person in a bar or to present in front of X numbers of humans. Thanks to school I got to meet and learn from Ilene Sawka. AContinue reading “Presentation Technique”

Group Dynamics

There are 50 of us in my class. We have 50 different values, backgrounds, experiences, ways to view the world. We have left the honey-moon faze in our group and people have retreated into being individuals within the group. This means a lot of frustration, irritation, and patronizing bubble up to the surface. Attending thisContinue reading “Group Dynamics”

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”

UNICEF – First brief

An intense week at Hyper Island; “Ideation Week”. This is when we learn how to both build ideas but¬†also narrow them down. This is the week when we got our FIRST BRIEF EVER from a real client! Stoked to say the least!…And it could not have been for a better cause either. We are bendingContinue reading “UNICEF – First brief”

Not Too Cool For School

¬†I have a crush on school. Lucky me to have a crush on something hehe. Today was sweet, we are working with the other programs for a couple of weeks and meeting some of those guys was great, although it felt rough to pop the solitude-bubble of my class…=( We got to take part ofContinue reading “Not Too Cool For School”

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”

First Day of School – Hyper Island, Digital Media Creative

The Hyper Island Way Week 50 new faces, voices, energies¬† 150 new life stories¬† 10 hours¬† Those numbers sums up my first day at Hyper Island. I was beyond excited last night and this morning.
