What do we want?

14. Oct, 2015

I am sitting here trying to twist my brain to hit some inspiration out of it. It's been awhile since I'we been writing.

I realize my life is quite stable and predictable at the moment.

Thoughts on spending time with myself

25. May, 2015

In some way it is total freedom to be completely alone. I choose what to do, what to eat, and when i want to do things.

I am drawn to and fascinated by the idea of spending time alone.

Success in life = the meta game

11. Feb, 2015

A lot of people talk about hard work as the most important factor for success in life.

I must disagree.

​My projects for 2015

03. Feb, 2015

In the limited spare time that is given to us, I chose to devote some of mine to urban gardening and something I call "Creators Club".

What I left out

  • 3D printing. I might still play around with it, but not on a serious level.
  • Travel/international community. Not in the sense that I will stop travelling or host events. But I'm not gonna build an organization or community in 2015.

How to get back on track after a vacation

03. Jan, 2015

If I take time out of my regular schedule to do something else it can be hard to immediately fall back in. Especially if it's a great vacation.

The reason why is a mystery to me. Of course since I am self employed, I could choose to just extend the vacation. So there are no strict obligations which is part of the problem, but that still doesn't explain why.

01. Jan, 2015

We sit and listen. We learn. We are formed.

In our free time we mingle with each other. We play. We dance.

We care about the here and now. The next exam. The next party. The next girl/guy.

My opinion about politics

15. Oct, 2014

I used to be a member of youth politics. I have always had a mix of libertarian and European conservative opinions. A few years ago I dropped out of politics. It no longer interested me.

The reason? I wanted to take part in shaping the future. The future has always interested me a great deal. It is a place where dreams can come true. It all depends on our level of ambition. We have a choice and choices are always interesting.

The return of respect

15. Oct, 2014

What's up with the headline? It's a wish - it's a hope. Did we ever lose respect? I'm not totally sure, but it seems like we did, when you read the books from a different time. But it really doesnt matter that much.

Life is gritty, its egoistic. We basically share no empathy with people who we can't benefit from. But maybe that's ok.
