First week of work

First week of work

I’ve been working with my new job for a week. This is the first day that I’m taking a real day off. I tried om Saturday, but I had fires to extinguish.  I slept 14hrs, and woke up around 13.00. Sleeping this much reminded me that I’ve been neglecting my naps and rest time. I’ll …

“I’ve had a day”

“I’ve had a day”

“I’m having a day, a week, a month…” I recognize myself so much in this. I kept chugging along, for years, just one more crisis to manage, where to live, how to eat, how to pay rent. Get through my courses so I’d be eligible for student loan so I could do those things. Watching …

Out of the Closet: I’m Fat

Out of the Closet: I’m Fat

I have not just temporarily gained some weight, which I’m going to lose soon again. I mean, yes that may happen, but it is not sustainable from a mental health point of view to continue waiting for myself to have enough energy to “deal with my weight”. here’s a short snippet from my twitter which …

I got my health back

I got my health back

Yes, and no. It is partially true, and I notice improvements every day. I also notice where my limits are and take a step back, take a mental note and try to remember for next time to not make the same mistake again. But back to the good stuff, I got my health back! On …

Black and white

Black and white

I’m so sick and tired of people viewing the world in black and white. We no time for nuance in our posts, our streams. There’s no time and no space. I’m right you’re wrong, I’m wrong you’re right. Black. White. On top of this, we have algorithmic bubbles, bubbles of views, where most of the …

Kan vi alla hålla med om att vi behöver en hållbar flyktingpolitik?

Kan vi alla hålla med om att vi behöver en hållbar flyktingpolitik?

Vi måste prata om detta, inför Partiledardebatterna, och under den: Kan vi börja prata om skatteflykterna, och dåligt planerad användning av skattemedel? (så som den fina kryssningsbåten till flyktingar som stog tom måste betalas för och blev en rättsligt tvist, kolosalt höga hyror för asylsökande/flyktingar där uthyrare går i vinst) Kan vi börja att verkligen …

Coming back down to earth

I was high, so high. Up in the clouds, happy and energetic. I knew it wouldn’t last. Let’s talk about it. Let’s talk about what happens when we come back down from the high. You and I wont be the same, but here’s my side. It started two days ago, but I didn’t realize. I …

Having a positive body-image?

Having a positive body-image?

It can be difficult, especially if you’re a bit overweight and watch how the rest of the world talk about such things, or depict you. Even more so if you’ve gained 5-7kg since you got sick. But today I did one of the best things I could have done for myself: I made sure to …
