June 2009

Life in General:

June was the month when I packed seven bags to go to Norrköping and live at my parents place for the summer, while being there I realized that I am a real stockholmer since I missed Stockholm a lot. I also turned 27  and celebrated my birthday in the garden with my family and the day after with my friends in Ljungsbro.

Friends:

At our national day 6th of June it was time for a new party at Lidingö together with Lorraine, Sanna, Susanna, Jenny and Elisabeth. Great fun but what happens on the island, stays on the island.

I celebrated the Midsummer holiday at Björn and Josefin‘s place, Bondhälla. Probably the best midsummer holiday I have ever had.

25th of June Stefan and Pernilla got a daughter. A really cute girl, called Alice. She is the closest child I know and I really like to play and cuddle with her. And since she is the first child among the closest friends, she is really spoiled.

Two days after Alice was born it was time to celebrate mine and Andreas birthday at Anna and Andreas house in Ljungsbro. It was a nice party with a lot of nice people.

Family:

My brother visited me for the first time since I moved to Stockholm at the national day. It was a really short visit though since we had separated plans for the evening.

School:

My first year at Medieinstitutet ended in the beginning of June with a really nice lecture by Teo Härén about creativity. I also received a lot of praise from my teacher in journalism which made me re-think about my future.

Work:

In June I went back to work at Lagos Mode in Norrköping. I enjoyed working again and meeting old and new customers. I also ran around with my camera and photographed my co-workers for the summer blog. In the beginning of the month I also worked as a presider at the election for the EU parliament.

Social Media:

In June I started to use social media at work for the first time when I set up the summer blog at Lagos Mode. I really enjoyed working with the blog and I learned a lot meanwhile.

Trips:

As soon as the spring term was over Elisabeth and I went to Barcelona to get some sun and nice shopping. We had really fun together in Spain. I miss you and your crazy antics Elisabeth.

After I had “moved” to Norrköping for the summer I also made a trip to Vimmerby for a meeting with the big boss, Mr S. On the way there I also visited Sandströms in Vimmerby and Kisa.

Society:

The Pirate Party got over 7 percent of the swedish votes in the election for the EU parliament and Michael Jackson died and was mourned by a whole world.

Boardgames:

Andreas and Anna gave me Chez Goth as a birthday present. It’s a shame I haven’t played it yet but I brought it to Stockholm and I haven’t found any boardgame partners there.

May 2009

Life in General:

May was the month when my blog got a big revamp, I flied with an aeroplane for the first time since 2000 and I cut my hair and lost 5kg according to the hairdresser.

Friends:

I played softball with a wig in the Drottningholm castle area along with Jenny and her friends. It was really fun and I hope we’ll do it again this year.

Family:

In May my mum turned 60 and celebrated her birthday together with me on Crete.

School:

I was totally bored in school and had no motivation what so ever after coming back from my first internship period. The only good things in school this month were the lectures and workshops with Johan Lange.

LiA:

I made a little comeback at my internship company when they arranged Habit Fashion Summit at Grand Hôtel. While being there I was blogging in the Habit blog.

Social Media:

In May I finally set up this wordpress blog, something I did way to late. My old blog survived for to long really. This was also the month when I got to understand how useful Twitter is. I started to follow more interesting people and got to know my first tweeps.

Trips:

The month started with a trip to Crete together with my mum. We had a nice week even though it started with 3 days of rain…

In the end of the month I also made a little trip to my home county Östergötland.

Sports:

I started training again and I really enjoyed it. Running along the beach in the sunrise at Crete was lovely.

Books:

May was the month when I started to read Dreams from my father by Barack Obama. A book I haven’t finished yet. I only have about 50 pages left though ;)

April 2009

Life in general:

April was a really good month for me when I enjoyed myself most of the time. I loved being at my internship company Mentor, I bought some new tech gadgets and I had some great times together with my wonderful friends..

Friends:

In the beginning of the month I attended the Bachelorette party for Pernilla in Linköping. We had dinner at Harry’s and went to the theater to watch Cabaret. On Easter Saturday I went to Linköping again to spend some time with Anna, Andreas, Tobias and Björn, I got to see Anna and Andreas new house and experienced Ljungsbro by night. The day after Stefan and Pernilla also joined us for some quality time together.

Sanna and her friend Sandra had a little party with “children’s party” theme, I went there with Lorraine and even though we weren’t alot of people at the party we had great fun and lots of good laughs.

In April, Stefan and Pernilla also got married and had a party for their friends in their house in Linköping which I of course attended.

Family:

During the Easter holiday my brother, sister-in-law and I where all at my parents house. I harassed them the whole weekend with my new camera. I also visited my grandfather at the recovery clinic this weekend.

LiA:

I was at Habit more or less the entire month. I enjoyed my time and wasn’t happy at all about going back to school in the end of the month.

Trips:

As you might have understood from what I have written above I made a lot of trips to Östergötland during April, actually I made three of them.

Technology:

In April I bought a new cellphone after I had had my Sony Ericsson K700i for 4,5 years. The Sony Ericsson C902 is already to old to fulfil all my needs though and before 2009 was over I abandoned the phone.

I bought a new camera which I love but don’t use often enough to become the good photographer I would like to be.

I also attended an evening class in InDesign this month which took place in the Mac classroom at Medieskolan.

Film:

The only film I watched but most of all produced in April was the film about Stefan which I gave to Stefan and Pernilla at their wedding party. The film was really appreciated.

Mobile shot:

The mobile shot of April is this.

My brother got enough of me playing with my new cellphone camera and showed me this face.

March 2009

Life in general:

In March I got to taste real life when I did my first internship. I realized that work > school.

Friends:

I had my first really great night out in Stockholm since I moved here. Together with Lorraine, Sanna, Susanna and Karin I had so much fun and I came home after the newspaper :)

Family:

My aunt Marianne and cousin Anna came to visit me during a weekend in the middle of March. We had a great weekend together with lots of good laughs.

LiA:

My first internship period at Habit started and I learned to wake up early in the morning. I got routines and after some months with a lot of stomach problems I started to enjoy life again. During this time I didn’t blog much though. Commuting stole my time.

Trips:

The only trips I did during this month were my daily trips to Lidingö when I had my internship at Mentor Online.

Music:

My aunt, cousin and I went to Klara Kyrka for a gospel concert with the Ådahl brothers where I got to hear some good old favourites of mine :)

Film:

When my aunt and cousin visited me we went to the cinema and watched Män som hatar kvinnor. A really good movie in my opinion. I also wrote a little review of it.

The photo of the month will be a picture of the great party hostess Lorraine from our first party at Lidingö.

February 2009

Life in general:

In February I cut and dyed my hair at Peggis Barbershop in Norrköping. Something that was really well needed.

Friends:

In the beginning of the month I visited Daniel & Emma to play some boardgames with them and Stefan & Pernilla to see their new house.

I also was at the Resumébar with some classmates to hang around with our future colleagues.

In the end of the month I visited Frida, Jimmy and their daughters but I also made a second visit at Stefan and Pernillas place where I also met Anna, Andreas, Tobias and Björn. Björn had also brought his girlfriend Josefin for the first time, a really nice girl who I’ve got to know during the year.

Family:

I visited my family in Norrköping twice this month. My parents in their house, my grandfather at the recovery clinic and my grandmother in her apartment.

Personal:

In February I published a personal poem for the first time ever.

School:

I was at Café Sturekatten to write a report for school. While I was there I ran into the Swedish pop singer Robyn.

Trips:

In the beginning of the month I went to Östergötland to visit my chiropractor, dentist, grandfather, and some friends. The month ended with another trip to Östergötland to cut my hair and visit more friends.

Social Media:

I found Nanoblogg and was in love with a new social media platform. Although I don’t use it anymore, it was a great idea but I didn’t get much use of it.

Technology:

I bought a Saitek Eclipse keyboard.

Boardgames:

A boardgame evening with my neighbours was announced so I brought Ticket to ride and went there, even though I usually don’t go to places where I don’t know anyone. They weren’t boardgame geeks like me but I had pretty fun anyway. I played against three guys and won :)

Music:

I listened to my old friend Gustaf Spetz at Mosebacke and bought his new album. I really like to listen to it from time to time, not only because he is my friend, he is also a great musician.

Photo

In February my camera died so I can’t say that I have any photo of the month :(

In memoriam

My grandfather Bernth died this morning. After almost 92 years he fell asleep peacefully for the last time today.

My grandfather was a man who enjoyed life most of the time. He loved children and as his grandchild I couldn’t have gotten a better grandfather. My brother and I were the apples of his eye. Even when he became older and infirm, when he met children, his eyes really shone and he was playing with them as best as he could. He used to lark about with adults as well as children and he was full of great stories. If it wasn’t stories from his life as a milk machine fitter at farms all over the country, it was made up stories he had learned as a child about trolls and giants around the Örebro area where he grew up. I have spent many days in my grandmother’s and grandfather’s garden, where we played soccer or crocket together, times which are great memories for me. During his life my grandfather spread a lot of joy and laughter around him. He also had a very big heart, he always cared about people around him and wished them prosperity.

Even though he was very weak and mostly slept the last two weeks of his life, he wanted and tried to hug my brother and me less than a week ago when we visited him. He really loved us and we loved him.

Since he believed in God all his life, I think he is better off where he is now.

I will try to summarize the year of 2009 according to me, with 12 blog posts. The first post in my summation will be categorized as follows.

School:

School was all about the term project which I together with Anna and Elisabeth. I was going back to php coding, which I really enjoyed.

Thank you

It’s been some time since my last post. There are more than one reason for that but a lot of things have happened during the past weeks. For example I have bought an iPhone. I have had it for a week today and I think it’s the best thing I’ve ever bought. I have also had my last days at Tredje Statsmakten and Mentor. My last internship week were very hectic but I enjoyed my time anyway.

The Christmas holiday has been hard times for my family. That’s why I haven’t written until now. We haven’t prioritized things like blogs or Christmas gifts this year. I haven’t even sent as many Christmas greetings as I would’ve wanted to. Not even in my blog. At least I feel that I should’ve wished my blog readers a merry Christmas. I am sorry for that.

But as the topic says I would now like to thank you. Thank you all for the Christmas greetings, the Christmas gifts and the kind words. Thanks for all the warm greetings to the family. Thanks to all my tweeps for caring even though you don’t know my family. I love you all.

With spring -10 in mind

Yesterday my classmates Sanna, Lorraine, Jenny and I gathered up in Jennys kitchen for some brainstorming about the spring. And we had a good evening, where we were totally spitting out ideas. We were bouncing ideas about our individual final projects which we will do during the spring term. We discussed a little side project which we hopefully will start to work with as soon as possible. And we also started to plan for an upcoming event in May. I don’t know how much I can write about anything of this yet but I do know that I will blog more about it during the spring. Keep your eyes open, because this will be interesting stuff.

All in all, we had a great Saturday with great discussions. We also realised that we can have fun a Saturday night without party and lots of alcohol involved, something I welcome with open arms.
