NYC for a day. It’s only about an hour by train to Grand Central, and I’m thrown right into the Big Apple. Sounds and smells are overwhelming, I wish I had packed my breathing mask. But here I am, taking it all in. I make my way through midtown Manhattan, to the NYU Future Reality… Continue reading Wisdom, No Rush
I arrived safely in Connecticut. I’m staying with my older brother and his family, and it’s been really nice to see them. I love talking and playing with nephew and niece, seeing them grow up. I am happy to have such wonderful beings as part of my family. I’m wrapping my head around being in… Continue reading From The East…
As a part-time fruitarian I usually pack a sharp knife, a fork and a spoon, all wrapped in a dish towel. That way I can eat pretty much anything anywhere, and without much of a mess. Preparing for my summer trip, I wanted to find a way to have the same flexibility while traveling. I… Continue reading My New Favorite Power Tool
I am filled with gratitude as I’m writing this post. I just spent three days in Oslo, my “old home”, and it still felt like one. What makes it home is the people I know, the people I reconnected with. It started great right from the start. I got to stay with my dear old… Continue reading The Journey, Part One: Oslo
I really really enjoyed yesterday. It was a very social day, so while I wouldn’t mind having more of its kind, I also like having more productive days 🙂 Here’s what happened: Around 7am: 2h easy morning jog through Prater while listening to a book and Bach During the run: stopping at the pond for… Continue reading A Day In The Life – Awesome Version
I went to Critical Mass this past Friday for a nice bike ride in the summer sun. I was greeted by a rainbow and a cheerful group of people. My favorite part: doing five rounds around Praterstern, and, yes I admit it, my Schadenfreude for the people who had to wait for us to pass.… Continue reading Critical Mass & Rainbows
One of our guiding principles in the classroom is T.H.I.N.K.: Before you speak, THINK… T – is it True? H – is it Helpful? I – is it Inspiring? N – is it Necessary? K – is it Kind? I learn from it every day. Here’s a version of it that was made for one… Continue reading T.H.I.N.K.
The mountains is where I feel at home, at peace. I was lucky enough to be taken on a trip to the Bosruck mountains this past weekend. We hiked up to a cave on Friday evening and stayed there for the night (somewhat wet and not level, but exciting nonetheless). The next morning we climbed… Continue reading Views to Remember
I was part of cool companies when they were still cool (and existed). Like Opera Software and Sun Microsystems. My Norwegian language skills are still good enough to have conversations with Swedish people on Austrian trains, and them asking if I am Norwegian. My 17 year-old unused school French language skills are enough to understand… Continue reading 13 Things I Am Proud Of
Impressions from my hometown. Going for a jog/walk right next to mom’s place, where I grew up. It’s where the Do Re Mi song scene was filmed.
