Week fourteen 2010

This week was a four days week at work, a week that has been pretty calm since we haven’t recorded any shows at my internship with 30minuter. Instead we have had an election special week with shows that we made two weeks ago at the mall Hageby Centrum. The most interesting conversation this week was about transparency in small towns, a subject we discussed for a whole day, which lead to a blog post at någotsmart. The same evening I made a little page (in swedish) about an idea I had talked to @jimmyasklund about before. A tweetup at the zoo in Kolmården. Weirdly enough I got response from more people that I don’t know than from people that I do know at Twitter.

Evenings and today I have spent on trying to prepare for the presentation of my examination project and the opposition of Sanna‘s project aswell as the seminar I will give at Hela Kyrkans hemsida next saturday. I am getting a bit nervous for that seminar since seminars actually aren’t that common on my agenda. The presentation of the examination project feels like nothing in comparison.

Tomorrow I will visit my mothers work to get some physiotherapy in their warm water filled swimming pool. It’s a part of the recovery after the broken bones.

In case you wonder where I’ve been

I am fully aware of that I haven’t written anything here for a month. When I last posted something here I was busy with the final essay for my current education with the deadline set at 21st of February. So my plan was to take a blog break until then and focus on my essay. But that was back when I could walk on my two fully working legs. The 17th of February I slipped on the icy ground in Stockholm city and broke three bones in my right leg and foot. I have had a lot of pain and for medical reasons I haven’t been able to write blog posts (I am on pretty strong drugs). Not even smart blog posts. Although I am now trying to finish my essay and will focus on that until it’s done, which it hopefully will be this upcoming week if my body is with me.

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.

Mobile shot:

Marcus, CC and I went to the newly opened waffle cafe in Norrköping. This is what I ordered:

September 2009

Life in General:

Now when it’s really cold outside it’s all forgotten that we had an indian summer in September. The weather was lovely and made us swedes in a happy mood :)

Friends:

Lorraine, Stephanie, Susanna and I had a little party at Susanna’s place before we went to Lemon Bar where we met up with Hanna and Malin. The night ended with a little walk in the “early morning” together with Lorraine before we went home.

Family:

I went home to my family to attend a funeral together with them. Even though Bosse weren’t a family member he has always felt like one and it felt like a matter of course to be there.

Personal:

I started to write on the series of personal blog posts about my interests. I didn’t finish this project though and since I hate to start with projects and not finish them I hope that I will get time to write the rest of the posts this year.

School:

In school almost everything was about the dementia project but we also had some nice lectures and workshops with among others Björn Falkevik and Joakim Nyström.

LiA:

In September my hunt for an internship in social media got a result when I got my internship at Tredje Statsmakten Media who are producing Medierna in Sveriges Radio.

Social Media:

I read a lot of blog posts during September and I even had time to blog about some of them that I really liked, I blogged about Brit Stakston and about Kristoffer Björkman. The big discussion in the social media bubble this month which started already in August was about the pointless babble and even I wrote a blog post about it which I don’t feel ashamed about yet ;)

In my own blog I tried to write about my interests as I mentioned above. The blog also got a little revamp with new plugins and widgets.

I also got my second internship period through Twitter.

Trips:

There was only one trip made during September and that was to my home county Östergötland.

Technology:

Andreas Ekström announced the “no Google day” at the 1st of September. Something he failed upon already 7am but Google failed aswell when Google mail crashed in the evening.

Music:

I made a list of 100 tunes from the 00-decade which I realized was to early when Markus Krunegård released a new album with the song Benny. Although I have listened a lot to my list so I am happy that I made it.

TV:

I watched the TV-series Signé Chanel (Fashion House Chanel) in September and I loved it. Within an episode of 26 minutes I laughed, was annoyed and felt sorry together with the participants.

Mobile shot:

When I am browsing through my photos I can’t find any photo from September. Can it really be true? No photo of the month? I don’t use my camera often enough…

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
