2017 in review

Years in review

2017 was the year when I left my job and decided to take a break. I’m still enjoying it actually. I needed some space to clear out the old and start priming my mind for thinking new things. I started feeling stupid and uninteresting which is something that I really, really disliked. This is gradually getting better. I’m happy that I made the decision to take this time and think I will look back at […]

2016 in review

Years in review

For me, 2016 was a difficult and tiring year in many ways. I didn’t feel like I got things quite right, or that I could be the best version of myself. Not professionally nor personally. I suppose you have an in-between year now and then. And although a year is an arbitrary and fictitious way of looking at time, it does serve well as a marker to look both forwards and backwards. So I’ll take […]

Years in review

For the past five years, I have written a short summary of what I’ve done during the year. This one was very close to not be written. It takes a long time, and to be honest this year has been rough in many ways. 2015 is not going to my history books as particularly worthwhile. And as always, the most interesting stories are the ones I can’t write about. That’s corporate life I’m afraid. But […]

This is my annual summary. It is my way of remembering the year that past and to close the books. This is the fifth year I’ve done this, and if you are curious you can find 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 online too. 2014 was another eventful year and my third in the US. These are some of the things that I did over the year: January The local coffee place in the not-so-great area […]

Years in review

2013 was my first full year in the US. The longer I stay, the less I understand – and I mean from a positive sense. There is much more here than meets the eye, and a lot of my Swedish pre-justices about this country turned out to be wrong. I also had more of them than I thought. The nuances get lost and those are the ones that are really interesting.  This is the fourth […]

For the third year running, I’ve listed some memorable events for me during 2012. It has become a way to remember and manifest everything that has been going on. Even though many events are more documented than ever, they still seem to disappear in my memory for some reason. This is an attempt to counter-act that. For those of you that are curious, you can read about 2011 and 2010 too.   January Swedish winter, […]

Last year I went through what I had been doing for the past year. It was a bit of an eye-opener seeing it all listed in that way, but this year has been even better. So this is along listing of all the fun stuff that I’ve been doing during 2011. There were a few less exciting things too of course, but I don’t want to remember or share most of them. Here we go: […]
