November 2009

Life in General:

November was a very hectic month. And as it wasn’t enough I got myself another internship company. But all in all I am satisfied with what November gave me.

Friends:

Sanna, Lorraine, Jenny and I gathered up in Jennys kitchen for some brainstorming about the spring which will include individual final projects for school, a collective blog and an event in may. We had lots of fun and got some really good ideas.

During a visit in Norrköping I enjoyed an evening at Världens Bar together with Pernilla, Stefan, Alice and Anna. And when Stefan visited Stockholm I had dinner with him.

In the end of the month, the first weekend in advent started with a 60’s party at Sanna’s place. The day after I took the train to Gnesta to spend the rest of the weekend at Josefin‘s and Björn‘s house for some pre-christmas-celebration or something. Nice people, nice food, nice mulled wine and nice Christmas songs.

Family:

My aunt Marianne and cousin Anna visited me again for another weekend with Millennium and gospel. We watched Flickan som lekte med elden at the cinema and went to a Kirk Franklin concert in Ericsson Globe.

I also visited my family i Norrköping for a weekend.

LiA:

In the middle of November I lost control over my internship when I worked faster than expected at Tredje Statsmakten. I solved the problem by doing the rest of the internship at Habit 50% of the time while I stayed at Tredje Statsmakten 50% of the time.

Work:

Together with my co-worker Birgitta I was at the Habit Fashion Awards in the Blue Hall in Stockholm City Hall where she was nominated as the best seller in Sweden. To bad she didn’t win but in my eyes she is the best anyway. We had a wonderful evening at the awards and atleast Birgitta will remember that for the rest of her life. I borrowed Lorraine’s camera for this evening and I am very grateful for that, but afterwards I regretted that I didn’t bring my own camera, ’cause then I would’ve had better photos now.

Social Media:

I participated in the Autumn competition at skyltat.se which I later won, I also blogged about my classmates on Twitter and ended up on Niclas Strandh‘s first list of blogging tweeps.

In the end of the month when the fashion store Urban Outfitters terminated all its staff the owner of their swedish domain name used social media in a try to help the employees. I wrote a pretty long blog post about that aswell.

Trips:

The trips I made during the month weren’t very far, one to Norrköping and one to Bondhälla (outside Gnesta).

Film:

As I wrote above I watched Flickan som lekte med elden in November. The film was good, but it shone though that it was made for TV and not for cinema.

Music:

I created a Christmas list on Spotify and let my tweeps add their favourite to it. Here is the result.

It seems like I didn’t take any pictures with my beloved camera during November. Therefore, I have no picture of the month in this post. Unbelievable.

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.

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 :(

A friend in need, is a friend indeed

Today I was in big trouble.  I was packing for a midsummer holiday in the country and seven weeks in Östergötland when I realised:

  1. I don’t have bags enough to carry all the stuff I need to bring.
  2. Even with bags there is no chance on earth I will be able to carry all the stuff on a train.

After a lot of phone calls, messaging and so on I am now set to go and that is all thanks to my friends. I wouldn’t have solved this without them. Thanks to Jenny who lent me a bag everything is now packed. Thanks to Josefin, Björn and Josefins father, who brought my stuff on his way home from work, most of my stuff is already at Josefins place where I am gonna spend the midsummer holiday. And thanks to Tobias I will get my things to Östergötland on Saturday.

I love my friends and would be nothing without them.

So, tomorrow I am leaving Stockholm for atleast seven weeks in Östergötland. I will work most of the time but also spend some time with friends and family. The bad things about leaving now is that Stockholm is beautiful in the summer but I will maybe go back for a weekend or so when I have a saturday off work.
