Long Time No Update

So I know that it has been a very long time since I have done any updating of LiveJournal -- basically posting nothing too serious since explaining the flight back from Sydney.

Well basically, I got back from Sydney and it has been nothing but a lot of work with not so much time to be with friends. I have a new job at work, but I haven't gotten rid of my old 2 jobs, so basically it means that I have a lot of work to do. We have had a lot of reviews come up without much notice and they have been time-consuming. But I guess I should not complain too much...after all, 500 individuals in IBM Sweden were given notice and yet everyone I speak too tells me of the valuable role that I am playing and that they want to see me around.

A highlight after coming back from holiday was that I got to chat with Steve by phone and that was quite nice. And the phone call made me realise that I can keep friends over long distances, so that was a good thing as well. Was both in Oslo and Denmark in the same week, had a cancelled trip to Germany, and now a newly-scheduled trip to Oslo in a few weeks. I also have invitations to work with some colleagues in Copenhagen, but finding the time to do Scandic travel is a challenge these days.

In my personaly life, it has been somewhat impacted due to work. That and I have adopted a more sane approach to partying. Basically, I no longer feel that I have to party to the extreme with all of my friends every single weekend. I know know that it's okay to actually stay at home sometimes, and that when I do go out, the party does not have to last all night long. It's been a very liberating feeling. A very happy feeling because I have started to relax. I now have my weekend back (no longer being hung over), and I have been more productive in doing the things that I want to do, instead of limited to how far could I get on a hangover.

Today I took the train to Göteborg to hang out with friends not seen in awhile and to get away from Stockholm, if only for a few days. I was supposed to stay in Göteborg from Thursday to Sunday, but instead might come back a day early into Stockholm. It just depends.

So anyway, that's as much of a public update as I can provide ;-) I hope that everyone is doing well and remember that you can always reach me via e-mail at Actually, since that e-mail address gets so much spam I don't use it actively. But I do receive initial e-mails there and for people I know, I then give my preferred address.

Love, Peace, and Hair Grease!
