My Birthday!

Mass Effect me drawn by David Palm!

Original me!

Celebrated my birthday this week! Can’t really tell you much except it was one of my best birthdays ever! Got this awesome hand painted portrait from my dear friend David. He made one Mass Effect themed and a plain one. I was so happy to get them, it really made my day!

Speaking of something more serious: the game studio behind “Prototype”, Radical Entertainment, is shutting down. Makes me sad, I really enjoyed Prototype 1 and was going to buy the newly released squeal. Haven’t really got around to do it yet since my 360 is kinda old and I know it could get RROD at any time. That + I don’t really want to spend my vacation indoors…

Sad news...

Had a quick lunch today while in Stockholm (yes, feels like I’m traveling 24/7 while on vacation). Met with Henrik who’s a game designer at Easy Studios. Back in the days he and some other game developers I knew at Uni worked at a mod called “Decadence“. It made me happy to hear he liked it at Easy now and learned plenty of new things. I was always sure the the gays & gals behind Decadence would get hired after Uni. They were all talented, friendly and motivated. Today they work at Paradox, Mojang and Starbreeze (to mention some of the places). Hopefully I will be able to catch up on more about what’s going on in Henriks life in July when I go back to Stockholm again!

New Page: “My Videos”

Hi all! I updated the tab “My Videos” (or more like created it). It’s not like I have plenty of videos to show you (some just get stuck in the computer and I never seem to finish them), but there’s two of them if you are interested. As you can tell the link in the videos to my old blog, is no longer active. Enjoy!

My Midsummer

How many guys does it take to put a grill together? I wore my flower dress <3

So I’m back from the dead after a fantastic Midsummer! As usual it rained cats an dogs, but after we had finished the traditional midsummer’s eve lunch the sun burst trough and we had a really lovely night. I watched the sun rise at around 04.30 am and the whole gang took a walk on a field full of red Papaver. It was magic, like something from an indie music video, haha!

 

Next week I’ll be visiting my family on the Åland islands and hopefully paddle some kayak. Some of the photos are from my instagram where I’m named Saxen8.

Found a huge snail!

Midnight, but the sun never really goes down during summer.

How It Makes Me Feel When…

 

Made a small comic about who It makes me feel when I wake up early v.s how it makes me feel when I wake up late. But it’s really about it’s how you look at life, from what viewpoint and how much do you really know about what’s going on? I saw the sun rise today and it was awesome, it’s doesn’t matter it’s raining now, or if it’s raining tonight, for I already had the best start on this beautiful new day!

Another small comic about how it makes me feel when everyone else except me can drink coffee at the office.

But I got some awesome friends who love tea as much as I do!

Happy Summer

Finally managed to get myself a proper haircut!

Hi all, I hope you are having an awesome summer. Today is a very special day in the Nordics, we celebrate midsummer’s eve! Usually that means you get to see your friends & family, have a good time, eat and dance. Since I’m at least 800km away from my family right now I guess my friends will have to do for tonight (just kidding, love you!).

If you are interested in how to celebrate midsummer’s eve the traditional way, click here for a short and funny movie called “Midsummer for dummies”. It’s kinda spot on, and we celebrate much the same way in Finland where I was born. Did you know 9 months after this special day there’s a baby boom in both Sweden and Finland..? But there’s also plenty of car accidents around this special holiday since so many ppl are spending this day out in the nature or in their summer houses. Anyhow, here’s some pictures of my week so far, hope you enjoy and stay safe out there this weekend!

Late night board games with friends!

A very cool collection of real world bugs!!

I love taking notes the old fashioned way!

I got to walk the red carpet OMG!
