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.

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.

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 ;)

Photo:

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.

Beaten by Jib Jab

My resume of 2009 feels kind of boring. Somehow I regret starting with it, but at the same time I feel that I have to finish what I have started.

Jib Jab has done a much better summary of the year and it’s pretty fun as well.

I found it in Emanuel Karlstens blog.

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.

Photo:

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.

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