Hello everyone, this will probably be my last post as a digital ambassador for KI. I’ve had a lot of fun being allowed to blog on this page! Studying at KI has given me so much, as I’ve also mentioned in previous posts. I will always think fondly of my time there, the adventures I’ve… Read More Hello and goodbye!
So, a lot has happened since I last wrote, in the beginning of summer. I previously wrote a piece on where I was going for my masters and how important it is to follow your heart in these matters. Well I was recently also accepted to Leiden University in the Netherlands. Leiden University is where… Read More Accepted 2
This Friday is midsummer. The longest day of the year. If you’re in the northern parts of Sweden, the sun never sets around this time of year. It just sinks lower and lower in the sky, until it suddenly starts to rise again. My father is from the very north of Sweden. When his parents… Read More Midsummer
It is sometimes odd to imagine life after graduation. But suddenly it’s over. So quickly that at least my brain doesn’t seem to register that it’s actually done. Where did all the years go? I can still vividly remember the first day, arriving to the Karolinska Institute with my bags packed for the introduction camp.… Read More Graduated
On Tuesday I’m sending in my thesis to my Swedish KI supervisor, allowing for comments of things to alter before sending in the final report! It feels slightly surreal. I’ve only been here since January but it feels almost like I’ve always lived here. At the same time as it feels like everything has gone… Read More Final banal(?) report from London
Spring is nearing the end and here in London I’ve happily enjoyed an unusually (for me) long one. Frankly it’s been more like summer this past month with all the beautiful flowers and leaves blooming already. I’ve especially enjoyed biking to Imperial College in the mornings, with the sun in my eyes and seeing the… Read More The perks of cycling
Today is valborg in Sweden! (30th of april every year) It’s kind of a love or hate day for most people. As a child, valborg meant my parents’ friends coming to our house and a bonfire. My dad has two gardening occupations which he loves – cutting trees (preferably with the chainsaw) and setting fire… Read More Valborg!
Easter is already over, and what better way to start some well-earned time off then by being sick? After a half day of traveling last Thursday and Easter-dinner with the family in the evening where I felt just fine, I woke up Friday morning with fever and a throat thicker than pea soup. Refusing to… Read More Lecture from the pharmacologist
It keeps baffling me how fast time is moving! It feels like just yesterday I arrived in London, but now it’s already mid-April. Looking at the calendar, I keep finding things I’ve written down thinking “oh, that’s a long way down the road” suddenly happening next week! One such example is Easter-break. For me doing… Read More Summer is coming!
It’s a grey day here in London, and a warning issued that pollution levels are unusually high because of something with the winds. Especially exercising outside is not advised. Days like this I: 1. Don’t mind spending all day in the lab 2. Get extra annoyed with people in cars. Especially the ones with only a driver.… Read More Sweden is a green country.
