And napping

by

This week I can be found on Santorini, with a Mojito and book on quantum physics.

I love digging in to heavy books on space and physics, but I can usually only manage a couple of pages before I need time to reflect, go back and make sure I understand, and then nap on it.

Pretty people

Look at all these handsome engineers! This was truly a life goal. How time flew on by! I’m nostalgic for all those late nights of calculus, coding, building robots, fixing presentations and hanging out in group rooms or Skype meetings.

Diploma ceremony

by

11 years ago, after my first exam in high school, I decided that I wanted to become an engineer.

Today, in the blistering heat of this Swedish summer day, I walked up the stairs in Stockholm city hall to receive my diploma. A Master of Science in Engineering, Civilingenjör.

Many goosebumps, some sentimental tears. I know that I’ve worked for almost a year already. But these days filled with reflection, in combination with the reorg at IKEA and the end of my leadership programme, has me asking: What do I do now?

I’m done. I want icecream now.
