New Swedish blog!

April 14, 2012 Leave a comment

You may have noticed my lack of updates on this blog.

So have I.

And I have been painfully aware, although in denial of the reason why.

The reason why, seems to be the bilinguality of the blog.

It’s not that I have problems writing things in English. Or well. Actually, that’s partly true. It clearly isn’t my mother tongue, and that’s not going to change. I have realized that I really love writing, but if anything is going to happen with my blogging, it needs to get beyond the angst of trying to pick a language for every blog entry I make. I need to pick a language as my default language to blog in.

And that language happens to be Swedish. I initially started feeling this way years ago, when I first began writing posts in Swedish to start with. And ever since I did, I realized I am usually much more comfortable with expressing myself in Swedish than English.

What does this mean, then?

That I have decided to keep this blog as it is. I will probably write entries here from time to time, and probably only in English. However, I have started a new blog that will be entirely in Swedish, which I will probably spend more time writing on.

The blog has no name yet, but the URL name I decided to give it is http://metanoi.wordpress.com
I admit the name is simply “metanoia” (Greek for “repentance”) without the “a”, but it was the word I most wanted to describe a blog I wrote right now with.

So… I’m not abandoning this blog, but for some time at least, it will probably be the less favoured of my two blogs. I have hope for this division into two blogs though, I hope it will end up helping me actually finish blog entries 🙂

Kyrie, eleison!

Min sommar och funderingar kring Gud

June 24, 2010 2 comments

Nu Àr terminen pÄ universitet slut, och jag Àr hemma i mina förÀldrars hus i Halmstad! TvÄ dagar efter min hemfÀrd Äkte jag till London för att hÀlsa pÄ Tom, Percival, Andrew och Matt, frÄn mina Pure Pwnage-dagar. TrÀffade allihopa senast i augusti 2008, sÄ det var ett tag sedan! Besökte en anglikansk kyrka dÀr, vilket var intressant! Det Àr en hÀrlig kÀnsla att kunna komma in i en kyrka och omedelbart kÀnna sig som att man Àr bland syskon! Morgonen nÀr vi skulle flyga hem vaknade jag 05.30, och vi kom ivÀg lite sent till tÄget, vilket vi missade. VÀl pÄ flygplatsen uppstod viss förvirring kring vilken terminal jag skulle till, sÄ jag missade flyget, fast jag stod vid gaten 07.55, 5 minuter innan flyget skulle Äka och stirrade pÄ planet. £43 fattigare hade jag snart en ny biljett till planet som gick 17.25 istÀllet. Sov nÄgra timmar pÄ flygplatsen efter allt springande, men fick Àven lite lÀst. Fick lite trubbel i Köpenhamn med, men med mammas hjÀlp kom jag hem med tÄget till slut.

En intressant sak jag mÀrkte nÀr jag var i England var att jag hade lite svÄrt att tÀnka och prata engelska pÄ ett naturligt och smidigt sÀtt första dagen, jag fick nÀstan huvudvÀrk. Andra dagen var det dÀremot helt naturligt, och jag hade nÀstan svÄrt att byta tillbaka till svenska igen. Men ÀndÄ mÄste jag sÀga att jag Àr mycket mer avslappnad nÀr jag skriver och pratar pÄ svenska. DÀrför bestÀmde jag mig exempelvis för att skriva det hÀr inlÀgget pÄ svenska. De flesta av de som lÀser min blogg Àr dessutom svenskar, och det Àr minst lika mÄnga som tappar intresse av den nÀr allt Àr pÄ engelska, som det Àr engelsktalande som slutar lÀsa för att allt Àr pÄ svenska. Man kan inte vara alla till lags. Men jag tror att jag kommer mest till min rÀtt om jag anvÀnder det hÀr forumet till att skriva pÄ svenska, med nÄgot inlÀgg pÄ engelska hÀr och dÀr, till exempel det som jag kommer att lÀgga upp hÀrnÀst!

Hur som helst, nĂ€r jag vĂ€l var hemma frĂ„n London fick jag reda pĂ„ att jag fick VG pĂ„ hela terminen pĂ„ universitetet, alltsĂ„ Religionsvetenskap A pĂ„ 30 hp! Är vĂ€ldigt nöjd, speciellt dĂ„ jag egentligen borde ha gjort tvĂ„ kompletteringsuppgifter i delkurs 1. Kan tĂ€nka mig att lĂ€raren antingen glömde detta, eller inte orkade bry sig nĂ€r han sĂ„g mina resultat frĂ„n alla andra seminarier, tentor och uppgifter. Det har varit en bra termin, tycker jag. Jag kommer nog inte att kĂ€nna nĂ„gon större sorg över att inte gĂ„ pĂ„ “riktiga” universitetet nu lĂ€ngre, dĂ„ jag vet att jag bara skulle sitta med urskiljningsradarn pĂ„ högsta funktion pĂ„ varje förelĂ€sning. Det finns en frid i att ha sunda lĂ€rare, Ă€ven om jag naturligtvis inte hĂ„ller med dem i allt pĂ„ J-lund heller (de hĂ„ller ju inte med varandra…).

Vidare hĂ„ller jag pĂ„ att förbereda för inflyttning till DjĂ€knegatan, dĂ„ Simon och jag fĂ„r nycklarna dit den 1:a juni. Åker dĂ„ upp för att köpa och flytta in saker i lĂ€genheten med mamma! I övrigt ser min sommar rĂ€tt tunn ut i kalendern, vilket kĂ€nns skönt pĂ„ alla plan utom det ekonomiska. Hoppas pĂ„ att min chef pĂ„ tidningsbudjobbet ger mig nĂ„got alternativ som fungerar i sommar… Det jag har inplanerat Ă€r i princip ett bröllop i augusti och att vara ledare pĂ„ Ungdoms-OaslĂ€gret “En tro som hĂ„ller” i juli. Det skall bli spĂ€nnande och utmanande. PĂ„ tal om ledarroll sĂ„ blev jag vĂ€ldigt sugen nĂ€r jag sĂ„g allas bilder och hörde berĂ€ttelser om konfirmationslĂ€ger nu i sommar. Jag vill undervisa! Skall titta pĂ„ möjligheten att vara ledare nu i höst!

Jag hĂ„ller just nu pĂ„ att lĂ€sa Greg Boyd, som jag blev introducerad till av Patrik Adlarsson i min hemgrupp i höstas. Egentligen var det först nĂ€r jag sĂ„g att han var annihilationist som jag blev riktigt intresserad av honom. Det kan lĂ„ta konstigt, men det var precis i en tid dĂ„ jag funderade pĂ„ de frĂ„gorna, sĂ„ det blev viktigt för mig. NĂ€r jag sedan har kommit att lyssna pĂ„ mer av vad han har att sĂ€ga, har jag fĂ„tt omvĂ€rdera en del av mina tidigare stĂ„ndpunkter, exempelvis kring krig, dom och kĂ€rlek. NĂ„gra av de tankarna gĂ„r att se spĂ„r av i mitt förra inlĂ€gg om helig strid. Hur som helst lĂ€ste jag nyss ut boken “God of the Possible”, som handlar om s.k. Open Theism, alltsĂ„ tanken att framtiden delvis bestĂ„r av möjligheter, och att Gud dĂ€rmed kĂ€nner dem som just möjligheter, snarare Ă€n bestĂ€mda faktum. Andra saker jag funderat pĂ„ Ă€r inklusivism, försoningslĂ€ra och pacifism, som Boyd pĂ„ ett eller annat talar om. Jag har gjort en liten spellista pĂ„ intressanta videos med frĂ„gor och svar som Greg Boyd och Paul Eddy frĂ„n samma församling besvarar enormt vĂ€l i de flesta fall… Svaren Ă€r ganska korta, men kĂ€rnfulla, och behandlar bland annat ondskans problem, predestination, frĂ€lsning, Bibelns trovĂ€rdighet, bön och andlig krigsföring! Rekommenderas varmt!

Jag hÄller pÄ att lÀra mig mer om Gud just nu. Utmanas i mÄnga, mÄnga frÄgor, men utmaningarna har bara fÄtt verka positivt pÄ min tro! Har fÄtt mycket uppmuntran och bekrÀftelse av min lÀrargÄva senaste tiden, och det glÀdjer mig. Jag försöker att lÀra mig teologi, och det gör mig engagerad och glad, men min största passion Àr att skapa teologi som sÀtter mÀnniskor fria att gÄ in i en djupare relation med den Levande Guden, uppenbarad i Jesus Kristus! Jag hoppas kunna fördjupa mig allt mer i Honom i sommar, och ser redan fram emot att börja mitt andra Är pÄ Johannelund i höst!

LĂ€gesrapport, PĂ„sken 2010

April 1, 2010 2 comments

De senaste mĂ„naderna har mycket kretsat i mitt huvud… Som alltid. Jag lĂ€r mig allt mer om teologi, och pĂ„ universitetet och Pannkakskyrkan lĂ€r jag mig hur det kan komma till anvĂ€ndning i mötet med “vanligt folk”. Jag har till viss del fĂ„tt agera den i klassen som stĂ€ller frĂ„gor till förelĂ€sarna, speciellt som representant för troende nĂ€r det ifrĂ„gasĂ€tts. Jag försöker dock allt jag kan att inte ge förelĂ€sarna intrycket att jag attackerar dem eller tycker illa om dem… De flesta Ă€r ganska mysiga, faktiskt 🙂

Just nu Ă€r jag hemma i Halmstad för att sköta datorprojektion pĂ„ PĂ„skkonferensen. Ett ganska avslappnat jobb, Ă€ven om det ibland blir mer Ă€n man trodde att man skulle göra. Det Ă€r skönt att tjĂ€na lite. Har Ă€ven anmĂ€lt mig som intresserad att vara gruppledare pĂ„ Credo/UngdomsOas sommarlĂ€ger i  BorĂ„s. Att faktiskt vara deltagare pĂ„ lĂ€ger har jag inte sĂ„ stort behov av nu för tiden. Kristet umgĂ€nge? Check. Bra gudstjĂ€nster/lovsĂ„ng/bön? Check? Bra undervisning? Varje dag, pĂ„ ett eller annat sĂ€tt (kanske inte frĂ€mst pĂ„ universitetet, dock…). Det Ă€r för tjĂ€nandet skull det Ă€r intressant nu för tiden. Dessutom Ă€r min ekonomi vĂ€ldigt tacksam för att jag anmĂ€ler mig till fĂ€rre lĂ€ger som jag mĂ„ste betala för 😛

BestĂ€llde tvĂ„ böcker igĂ„r, “The Fire That Consumes” av Edward W. Fudge och “Is God To Blame?” av Greg Boyd. BĂ„da handlar om frĂ„gor jag behandlar just nu, nĂ€mligen Annihilationism (som jag skrivit om tidigare hĂ€r pĂ„ bloggen) och Guds allmakt/allvetande. Utöver detta lĂ€ser jag just nu boken “De apostoliska fĂ€derna”, som innehĂ„ller bland annat DidachĂ©, Ignatios av Antiokias brev, Barnabasbrevet, Polykarpos och fragment frĂ„n Papias. Det handlar alltsĂ„ om kyrkofĂ€der frĂ„n före Ă„r 150, frĂ„n generationen efter de första apostlarna. Det Ă€r vĂ€ldigt intressant att se vad som hĂ€nde i kyrkan direkt efter det vi ser beskrivet i Nya Testamentet. Paulus Ă€r rena gnĂ€llspiken angĂ„ende sin fĂ„ngenskap i jĂ€mförelse med Ignatios, som anser att han inte kommer att ha blivit en riktig lĂ€rjunge förrĂ€n han lidit martyrdöden…

Hmm. Jag skriver alltid titlarna pĂ„ mina blogginlĂ€gg sist. Det Ă€r egentligen tanken pĂ„ att behöva komma pĂ„ en titel pĂ„ det jag skriver som hindrar mig frĂ„n att skriva oftare. Lite tragiskt, men sĂ„ Ă€r det 😛

Var pĂ„ förelĂ€sning pĂ„ Newmaninstitutet i mĂ„ndags. Det var en synnerligen speciell upplevelse. Hardcoreteologi – FörelĂ€sning med diskussion och ost, kex, cider och öl efterĂ„t. Det handlade om Karl Rahners transcendentalteologi och “implicit GudsnĂ€rvaro”. HĂ€r Ă€r en artikel frĂ„n Signum som berör lite av det som sades pĂ„ förelĂ€sningen.

Ja… Vad mer? Nu skall jag ivĂ€g pĂ„ en helg som antagligen kommer att bli vĂ€ldigt spĂ€nnande. Jag hoppas att Gud kommer att göra mycket, och att jag skall bli anvĂ€nd!

The future of this blog

January 4, 2010 Leave a comment

That sounds like a dramatic title, didn’t it?

I’m not considering stopping my blogging, quite the opposite. I have, however come to think more and more about the way I view my blog. When I started writing here back in 2006, it was all in English, and it was mainly about my life in school, music and gaming. That’s not really what I use it for these days. Also, in 2006, most of my friends and blog readers were English-speaking or at least not Swedish. While I have no idea who my blog readers are now (apparently most of them are still people who google “Whore of Babylon”), most of them are probably not people with English as their mother tongue. I’ve also started talking a lot more in Swedish in the past 2 years or so, which has come to mean that I think a lot more in Swedish than earlier. I’m also realizing that despite my knowledge in English, it will always be my second language.

Because of all this, I’ve written a few blog entries here and there in Swedish, starting in May last year. However, I’ve tried to continue writing a few general blog entries every so often in English, as well as a few theological ones. But I’m realizing that trying to please everyone might hinder the potential and purpose of the blog, as I see it. What exactly that purpose is, I’m not sure about, but I guess I want it to be an outlet for my thoughts on theology and things I find important. Not a diary, but more of a “public notepad”, as I’ve called it on in my blog’s byline. I’m not entirely comfortable with that expression, but whatever.

The point I’m trying to make is this: I’ll probably write more and more entries in Swedish, but I might write English ones every so often as well. If I want this blog to ever be a part of the… I shudder to use the word… “Blogosphere”, a bilingual blog does not really stand a chance. Swedish people seem quite uncomfortable reading things in English, and to be honest I think I get uncomfortable reading Swedish people’s comments in English… So I think more Swedish entries is the way to go. Whether or not I will change the overall language of the blog, I’ll see.

But I’m starting to accept that I’m slowly becoming less international in my lifestyle, as well as less digital. This does not exactly mean I’m moving to the countryside and won’t answer calls, but it means I’m being more social with real people, I’m not playing as many games, I don’t listen as much to my MP3 player, and countless other little things. I’m also a bit ambivalent about the development of the blog culture. I’m against the 24/7 Online “Twitter culture” in theory, as well as in my own life, but I do appreciate the technology. I also find myself complaining when other people are not as accessable online as I’d want them to… I vehemently hate fashion blogs and things similar to it, for example. Maddox said: “If minds had anuses, blogging would be what the mind would do when it had to take a dump”. Wise words. I will probably never make a habit out of writing blog entries more than a couple of times per month at most, but I do want to spend more time actually writing things here.

So as I grow and develop, so might my blog. As I mentioned briefly in my last entry, I am learning to review my writing more. I’m actually going to go through this post before I publish it, something I was against before. However, I think it saves trouble both for me and my readers, and will be something I need to learn if I am ever to write books or similar in the future. Spur-of-the-moment articles might be good every now and again, but perhaps they aren’t always the best way to go. Without refining, Maddox’ definition of blogging would indeed be true for my blog as well, and I’m not sure that’s what I want to strive towards.

Why people misunderstand each other on the Internet

November 9, 2009 Leave a comment

I love reading people explain their thoughts and ideas on things. When people construct an idea, ask good questions for others to answer, or show signs of weakness in themselves and ask others to help them in their reasoning. People who are able to do these things, are wonderful to listen to or read things by.

However, this is not very common on the Internet. I am doing a course in Communication, Rhetoric and Homiletics at the moment. During the lesson, we talked about different ways we misunderstand each other when communicating, due to allegations, prejudice and things like that. In speech, these things are usually smoothed out a little by having some sort of continuous feedback from your listeners.

Communicating with text is not always something hard. There’s no body language, tone or pitch to change to help get the message across. However, instead of concentrating on body languagy, pitch, tone and things like this, time is the ally of the writer. Individual words and grammatical structure can be used to emphasize specific words and emotions. If the recipient can be assumed to be a diligent and careful reader, things that usually need repetition and explanation to be said in speech, can be written in very few words.  Getting a hand-written letter from a dear friend usually works fine. You know the person, their quirks, expressions and specialities. You can recognize small peculiarities in the language, but also in the handwriting.  Thanks to the usually quite in-depth nature of those kind of letters, many times the message gets across from the sheer length and the larger context any single sentence is put in. Because a well-formulated letter does not disappear the moment one has read a word, any misunderstandings can simply be cleared up by re-reading a few words or sentences.

However, writing can also severely limit communication, and increase misunderstandings. The differences between speaking and writing are not that emphasized in school. In this age of electronics, information and efficiency, more and more writing is being converted into typing. Handwriting is replaced with fonts, although the choice between fonts is not given in all contexts. When the different gestures the hand makes writing a letter are replaced with keystrokes by different fingers, it is not always that personal… The text that comes out is the result of a computer using its premade fonts to represent the keystrokes we make. Of course, this can be personalized to an extent, but never to the same extent.

More and more information is also exchanged over the Internet. When using e-mail or Facebook to communicate with friends, even these digital messages can usually be re-interpreted in our minds to make us recognize the “voices” of the friends who typed them. However, one of the revolutionary things with the Internet was of course not primarily the ability to reconnect with friends, but rather the ability to meet entirely new people at any given moment. A conversation or personal message can be sent to or received from any stranger in the blink of an eye.

This has opened up possibilities for a whole world of misunderstandings.

On the Internet, people remain anonymous until they choose to stop being anonymous. Sure, usually a name is required of those who post on blogs and websites, but sometimes the only thing the name of someone like “tacolover241” will tell you of them are their feeding habits and possibly overweight. The anonymity of the Internet has many disadvantages and a few advantages, but I’m only going to talk about its effects on communication.

We humans are not omniscient. We live in an objective reality, but our minds forms its own subjective version of this reality in our heads. To counteract this, we  were made with at least five senses, so that we could get several “sources” of knowledge. When one sense says one thing, but another says something else, we can double-check. Not all senses apply in every situation, of course, but hearing and seeing are perhaps the most important in communicating intentional messages between two people.

In the most genuine form of communication, face-to-face, a person has to put their body in a certain place, and all kinds of things can be observed by their listeners. Tone of voice, twitches, smells, tears, sweat, movements of hands, eyes and nose, articulation and laughter. All these things are important to understand what the person is really thinking about, and can be helpful when deciding if the person is genuine and trustworthy, or not.

Most of these things are of course destroyed by Internet communication. While things like Skype, Ventrilo and Teamspeak can be used to get both a visual and aural representation of a person, most communication is based on messages recorded at a previous moment in time, and any faults by the author can be safely edited before publishing.

In fact, while in “real life” (a problematic term), we can respond to a person by putting our entire body there, establish eye contact and asking in the tone and volume of our choice, this is not a luxury often given online. In fact, response is not always even possible. Even in a case where it is possible to respond, it is not always guaranteed that your voice is heard. Even though you might be Britney Spears’ top friend on Facebook, the real person behind the profile might not read your messages at all. In the case of less celebrated people online, any uncomfortable questions  asked by people can easily be ignored, without any repercussions.

In fact, sometimes the whole web seems like it is designed to fit the world of post-modernism: everyone lives in their own truth.

Of course, the real truth is lurking somewhere in the background, but it is much more easily ignored! The best example of all these things are YouTube comments. I can’t think of a perfect example right now, but try looking at the comments of just about any video about a controversial subject… Examples include 9/11, Jews, Christianity, Swine Flu, Emos, Feminism… Just about anything someone might have a strong opinion on. Everyone should know that Youtube is the worst possible forums for a discussion about controversial subjects, but that does not hinder people (including me sometimes) from trying to tell everyone the truth about the matter. While some try their best to use the written medium to convey a thought-out message concerning the issue, most answers will always be someone who perhaps watched 5 seconds of the video and then saying something that only really makes sense with their own background and context in mind.

Because of this, is it extremely confusing to have discussions with people on Youtube, or anywhere else online. When you get to know the person behind the text a little bit, it’s a bit easier to understand the full extent of their message, but it’s still severely limited.

So.

Where was I going with all this? Basically I guess I just needed to make a statement. While this is obvious to some, reality shouts the fact that most people don’t think about this. Most messages made on the Internet fly right past their readers’ minds, and into their pit of prejudiced answers. People read whatever they want into the things they read, and have no one there to correct them when they do. So, I urge you people to bear this in mind when you try to type like it was a spoken conversation online.

Especially in anonymous contexts, this anonymity has its repercussions on how people interact, makes newcomers feel like the Internet is a cold and unforgiving place. That’s probably because it is. But if more people bore these things in mind, maybe less people would be hurt.

Insights

January 24, 2009 Leave a comment

I have gradually abandoned blogging over the past few months in favour of keeping a diary of sorts instead, or rather the ”log book” we were told to keep last term in Bible school and during this term as well. I realized that blogging – perhaps not for everyone, but at least in part to me – encouraged an ego-praising attitude towards writing about your life, since I would go around and think about how I could write something about my life people would want to read. When I could only think of things I wanted or needed to write about that concerned me and not my writers, I would instead not write about it anywhere.

Oh well. I hope to keep using this blog to occasionally make entries with a summary of what is going on in my life, as well as being an outlet where I can write thoughts I would like to get out to others.

When I went home to Halmstad over Christmas I basically spent some online time, hung out with friends and family, and read a bit. Oh, and I watched through 4 seasons of Coupling… It didn’t entirely feel like home, though, more like a place I stayed at while I was in Halmstad with my parents. It still doesn’t feel to much like Johannelund is my home either, but I still very much like being here.

It’s interesting to note, really. From around August 2005 to August 2007 or so, I’d feel like I needed to go online to talk to my friends on TeamSpeak, MSN, Gtalk or whatnot. I couldn’t feel at peace just staying inside not talking to anyone or being available. Very soon when I moved here, I would feel the same way about the people who live around here. Being in my room or in the library too long felt boring, I would always feel like I might be missing out on what went on in the kitchen or elesewhere in the building. I need to train myself in being alone, and not constantly, actively, available to a certain group of people, be it online or the people in my vicinity.

I hope to write another entry later this week, as I have more things on my mind. But basically I’ve been given a great deal of things from God in the past few weeks, and I am learning so much, yet have so much more to learn.

The UK Meet and last goodbyes to Halmstad

August 27, 2008 3 comments

I really haven’t updated my blog nearly as much as I imagined I would this summer… Anyways, since my last update, I’ve finished work, gone to England and am now moving to Uppsala the upcoming Monday to start Bible school.

To summarise work… It’s weird how quickly you get into a habit and it stops feeling novel to you. During the time I worked I’ve managed to watch over half of all the Tom Baker Doctor Who stories and every single episode of Wonderfalls. I also watched Dr Horrible and Winding Gear (finally), as well as several random episodes of the other series I’ve been following. I’ve eaten a lot of toast with cheese,  which I doubt I’ll afford when I live in Uppsala…

I also went to London for the Pure Pwnage UK Fan Meet. The journey both ways actually went really smooth for once! See this thread for more, pictures start around post #781… For Techno-Ninja’s Hi-res pictures, see this link. For the lazy, here’s a few pics from there:

Haku, Me, Zanzibar (Ian), Skree (Andrew) and Virus52 (Andrew)

From left to right: Haku, Me, Zanzibar (Ian), Skree (Andrew) and Virus52 (Andrew)

Zanzibar (Ian), Skree (Andrew), Haku (we still dont know his name), Me and techno-ninja (Kayliegh)

From left to right: Zanzibar (Ian), Skree (Andrew), Haku (we still don't know his name), Me and techno-ninja (Kayliegh)

Virus52, ben(age) and Tom(bag)

Caught two people from the second day at the British Museum! From left to right: Virus52, ben(age) and Tom(bag)

( - Oh well... its DDR ffs.

The only decent photo of Zooloo, as he was the only one with a DIGITAL camera on the Saturday... It's me and Zooloo (Percival) attempting DDR... I won that round, but when Zooloo stopped, Skree tried and beat me twice 😩 - Oh well... it's DDR ffs.

After the actual meet, I went to Andrew’s house and stayed for three nights. I don’t have any pictures, but it was in Worthing outside Brighton, and it was very nice! His family (and his dog Barney) are lovely, and it was nice to hang out with someone from the community without rushing around a major town all the time.

When I got home, it turned out my parents finally bought a house, so if I go back to Halmstad after going to Bible school, I’ll have a place to stay. In the past few weeks I’ve also said goodbye to various people in Halmstad at various occasions. I had a small meetup with people from church, I had another meetup with people from last year’s school newspaper group, another with the people I went to Metaltown with (Karolina, Daniel, Arvid), along with Frans and some others, since it was a combined “good bye” thing with Daniel’s birthday in a few weeks. Then finally I played board games with Carolin, Alfred, Michael and his girlfriend’s sister’s boyfriend this weekend, and managed to play half a round of Arkham Horror. One day, I will play it until the end, and by the end I do not mean meeting the Ancient One 😩

Alright, so that’s basically what I have time to mention now. I’ll do another update when I’m at Johannelund, probably!
