October 2009

Life in General:

A lot of things happened in October, I was full booked the entire month and was barely at home. Therefore I ended the month with an All Saint’s weekend all by myself.

Friends:

The month started with a visit by Martin in the middle of the night. I hadn’t seen him for over 4 years so the day after I was really tired. The same week I was at a party hosted by a friend of Lorraine, along with her,  Sanna and some new acquaintances of mine.  One week later it was time for a cruise to Finland with my classmates which we called #knm08ombord. It was crazy, just as I had feared.

In the middle of the month I went to Linköping to have lunch with Pernilla and Alice before we joined up with Stefan and Tobias for a dinner at Doverud’s.  One week later I was back in their house when we celebrated Stefan’s and Anna’s birthdays.

Family:

It was my dad‘s birthday and even though it wasn’t an even number both me, my brother and my sister-in-law was at our parents house. During the stay we also went to the annually running competition Höstmilen and ended up in the local newspaper.

Personal:

In October I revealed my most geeky interest. Of course I also celebrated the International Teddy Bear Day ;)

School:

We finished our dementia project, had a successful pitch for an impressed customer. Later in October I had the last day in school for the year.

LiA:

I started my internship period with being sick and stayed at home for two days. But the rest of the month I only enjoyed my time at Tredje Statsmakten.

Social Media:

My internship was all about social media. I did social media research, social media strategies and used social media a lot on the behalf of Medierna.

I was also at a lunch together with Stockholm Social Media Club for the first time.

Trips:

Two trips to Östergötland was made in October and also a cruise to Finland with my classmates.

Sports:

I tried to get back on track with the training but failed because of chest pain.

Music:

Markus Krunegård released two albums and I couldn’t stop listen to the Benny song.

I also wrote a blog post about my interest in music.

August 2009

Life in General:

In august I went back home to Stockholm and felt really good about it.

Friends:

Susanna visited me in Norrköping. Together we visited Makkarakauppa and Kolmårdens Zoo and ate Greek food. I also spent some time with my friends in Linköping and in the end of the month we had a crayfish party at Tobias summer cottage.

Family:

My brother Marcus turned 30 and we celebrated him at his and CC‘s new apartment in Helsingborg.

Personal:

I wrote this personal blogpost about my mum

School:

School started again after 10 weeks of summer holiday. The first day we met our customer for the live project about dementia that we were going to start working with.

LiA:

I started to hunt for a place where I could do my second internship. The hunt took place mostly at Twitter and in my blog.

Work:

I worked first half of the month and ended the summer period at work and ended with a bit of golf playing and socializing in the forest with my colleagues. That was also the end for my summer blog.

Social Media:

I became even more twitter active and used social media to promote myself for another internship period. And as mentioned above I also ended the summer blog I had at work.

July 2009

Life in General:

In July most people are having vacation, but that’s the month when I worked the most.  I lived in Norrköping the entire month and realized that I missed Stockholm.

Friends:

I visited Alice and her parents in Linköping and melted when she fell asleep in my arms. When I went home to Stockholm for just a weekend I met up with Jenny and when we had decided to meet up with Peter and Adam we ended up at a rave party. Odd, I know.

Family:

I lived at my parent’s house the entire month and together with them I went to the castle in Örebro for a family reunion with all descendants of my mother’s grandparents.

Work:

I worked really hard this month at Lagos Mode, both in the store and with the blog, at the expense of my personal blog which wasn’t very updated during July.

Trips:

As written above I made two trips in July, one to my home in Stockholm and one to Örebro.

Mobile shot:

I caught Jenny when she was eating candy at work. Look how guilty she looks ;)

I missed Stockholm in July and went here when I had a weekend off work. I took a walk at Södermalm where I also took some photos.

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.

Me posing for the summer blog.

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.

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.

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.

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 :(

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.

Life in general:

The first month of the year was mostly about school for me.  I had a lot to do with school work and I didn’t leave Stockholm during the whole month.

Friends:

I celebrated the new year with my best friends at Tobias summer cottage.

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. We also had a term exhibition where we presented our project for the school and other interested people. In the end of the month I wrote my term examination and got a good grade ;)

Personal:

I wrote this personal blog post about my life as an avaocado plant.

Technology:

I bought an Olympus digital voice recorder which has been very useful throughout the year.

Catching up

So.. I have been a lazy blogger lately and it’s time to catch up by summing last weeks up in a blog post.  Worth mentioning from the last two weeks are that I officially had a whole week off work (but I was there for two of those days anyway). Susanna came to visit me in Norrköping one and a half week ago, we visited Makkarakauppa (a Finnish grocers), Kolmården (the biggest zoo in Scandinavia) and ate Greek food at Poseidon.

Last weekend I visited Linköping. First I did a little photo job at Sandströms for my blog at work. After that I met up with my friends to spend the rest of the Saturday with them. We had breakfast/lunch at Espresso House, chilled at the beach, tried to solve Rubik’s cube and ate grilled meat in Ljungsbro.

Stefan concentrated on solving Rubik's cube.

Thursday this week I went to Bränntorp with my co-workers to eat good food and play miniature golf together. I just ran around with my camera instead of playing golf though. You can read more about that (in swedish) and see some pictures in the last post I made in the work-blog.

Friday this week was the very last day at work for me this summer. And since I have been a good girl and not bought anything at all from work during the summer I rewarded myself with a skirt, two tops and a pullover. In the evening my mothers cousin from Canada visited us and stayed over the night before she carried on to visit more Swedish cousins.

Yesterday I packed all the bags I brought to Östergötland in the beginning of the summer and this morning my dad and I drove to Stockholm where I am now trying to unpack all the stuff (boring). Even though it means that the summer is over it feels good to be back in Stockholm and I will have one week off before school starts. A week which will be started with a haircut by Elie.
