About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To live life. To develop and be the best that I can be.

ABOUT ME

Grew up in the countryside of Sweden, one of the most beautiful places in the world. Have big and loving family who I keep close to my heart. Like people and usually think they have good in intentions, can be a bit naive that way.

I live in the forest & pick pine needles for my breakfast porrige. Spend long dark evenings with my fellow forest rebel talking about which is the ultimate sin, building poetry, scrap booking our own newspaper, massaging feet, drinking tea, planning actions against advertising, practising signlanguage, cooking, expressing gratitute. Spend days doing the same, & chopping wood, climbing trees, doing yoga, writing letters.

Also happens I work, visit my family back home in the forests of Dalarna, hang out with my friends little baby, dumpster dive, travel, go out to dance barefoot.

Bubbles, glitter, rainbows, sunsets, stars, bugs, colours - life is full of amazing wonders.

We are all part of nature, sadly many humanimals have forgotten all about it & think we live of it not in it. I want to live without a clock, calendar, plan or money & am sure I will get there one day.

Rather muscle than machine, construct than consume, acid than alchohol, peace than police, gifts than greed, crazy than lazy.

PHILOSOPHY

I try to live my life the way I think is right for the world and the people. Consider everything in life politics - your choice of food, what you consume, how you move around, how you treat the people around you - and do my best to be the change I want to see in the world but nobody is perfect. Me myself is quite stubborn and with strong opinions, enjoy a good discussion and try to keep an open mind. I think to be able to recognize your mistakes and change is a admirable quality.
To make our world work we need some very simple basic but radical changes. Money is not the way. (why is also why I really like CS)

Interests

I spend a lot of time in my kitchen cooking (vegetarian) without recipies. I am a quite sociable person who enjoy to meet my friends and just hang out or go for some adventures. In summer (since I live in Sweden it's the only time you can really spend any longer time outside) I like to visit music festivals and to stay outside at night to enjoy our amazing light nights. My best week of every year is in the beginning of August when I go to Sweden's biggest medieval event (medeltidsveckan in Visby) with my friends.
Have been traveling to Asia o lot and really love the way of life I have there; warm, free and easy. Since I feel comfortable with that part of our planet and have a lot of friends living there it's easy to just go back but I want to see more and is currently planning to learn Spanish and then explore south america. I also want to travel north america, europe, africa...I am curious about every place I haven't been.
I'm crazy about dumpstering and stick my head in the bin every chance I get. Most of my food comes from there, it's cra-azy the amounts of good things they just toss out.
I like yoga and meditation...but have a hard time to actually create an habit of doing it. I get on it for some time and then I move or get sick or start work and all my high ambitions just fly out the window. I really enjoy acroyoga and also did some aerial silk, so much fun!

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: Magnolia, Hedwig and the angry inch, zombie movies, Amélie, Les triplettes de Belleville, animations

Music: I like music a lot and listen to it at all times, a lot of what I choose is in swedish. Some bands I like are The Moldy Peaches, Lars Winnebäck, De Lyckliga Kompisarna, Ladytron, Manu Chao, Ani DiFranco, Billie The Vision And The Dancers, Svenska Akademien, Veronica Maggio

Books: I try to read a lot right now, have so many books I want to finish before I start living in my backpack for real & can't keep them around anymore. Currently reading about schamanism, astrologhy, nordic whitchery, crystals, how to develop my self -esteem, the moon, eadible plants & more.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

What is not amazing in life?
Travelled over land from Sweden to Singapore.
Lived in the forest of winter Sweden without water or electricity.
Fell in love, again & again.
Endless sunsets, sunrises, starry skies & rainbows.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am happy to share any knowledge & skill I have, I can cook, bake, do a little macrame (would love to learn more!), know how to make a fire, some acroyoga, swedish sign language, simple sewing & have endelss optimistic views of life to inspire with.
I am eager to learn almost anything! (except most sports involving teams or balls, I'm not big on those) I would like to know all the eadible plants in the world, how to attach stones in macrame pieces, nature medicine & some star constellations.
