Randomness #16

It’s vacation peak season in Sweden now and we’ve got the summer heat to justify it. I’m no good with temperatures above 25 degrees Celsius (my comfort zone is somewhere closer to 20) so I actually prefer to work at this time of the year–unlike a typical Swedish home, the office has air condition +… Continue reading

I managed to keep work at a more sustainable level also the week that just passed and as a result been able to spend more time on IROK than has typically been the case over the last couple of months. Although most of my efforts may not be immediately noticeable, there should be a lot… Continue reading

Compared to the week before, the latest week has been a breeze. I turned it into a much needed exercise in taking it easy, and it was successful enough for me to want to try the same thing. In addition to working less I’ve been listening to a lot more music, starting with my preparations… Continue reading

The week that just passed may have been the most exhausting in my entire professional life. I’m very lucky to have an interesting and challenging job, great colleagues and supportive managers, but as circumstances would have it I have found myself without ability to do anything worthwhile once I’ve left the office. Coming home on… Continue reading

Usually I reserve these “randomness” posts for late Sunday evenings, but as I didn’t get around to writing one yesterday (a combination of too much work related stress & signing up with NetFlix) and I have some random stuff to write about I figured why not do one today instead. The Seoul Record Fair took… Continue reading

This weekend–for the first time in more than a month–I finally got around to catching up on blogs through my feed reader. I’ve missed a lot and have more catching up to do in other areas (e.g. finding out what besides the more popular singles & albums have come out recently) but all will be… Continue reading

It’s been a couple of weeks since I last had time to sit down and blog. I’ve been moving, with the physical relocation being not at all as time consuming as the unpacking and furniture building that ensued. The new apartment is still far from done–we still haven’t even figured out how exactly to fit… Continue reading

The k-pop high I had anticipated this week never happened. I did go to see 4minute last Sunday, just as expected. The company was indeed awesome. And the show was as well. The members of 4minute were all absolutely delightful, the audience was pumped, and there was a party atmosphere like on no ever show… Continue reading

I’ve spent the past week in Russia. It was my first ever visit to the country and although it was a business trip, it was thoroughly enjoyable. My team took me out to walk around their beautiful city every evening after work and Nizhny Novgorod now qualifies just behind Seoul as my top travel destination…. Continue reading

Randomness #7

The past week has been very busy, but for reasons quite different from my usual busy weeks. One big thing is planning the move to our new apartment, which should happen in a couple of weeks. Another big thing has been preparing a business trip to Russia, which because of many holidays earlier this month… Continue reading
