.: 2 November 2014 :.

First blogpost!

I am about to start a two-year Master’s programme in Interaction Design at Umeå, Institute of Design. I will move to Sweden, a country I have never been to. I will meet new people and hopefully built great things. I can hardly picture myself in two years from now, but I know it is going to be awesome.

There is a lot of uncertainty, a lot of unknown. I see this as an opportunity, because I really believe that true beauty emerges from the uncertain and the unknown. True beauty in the form of creativity, stories or personal development emerges when you don’t expect it.

Why this blog?

This blog has two main purposes. Firstly I will use it as a medium to document and reflect on my experiences, insights and learning moments. I think that documentation and reflection is vital in any personal development. It creates a foundation for learning because it is a way to solidify vague ideas into ready-to-use knowledge.

Secondly, I will blog because I hope to create value for other people. I am not sure how this value manifests itself and it will vary per person. I would love to hear how you think about this!

Please drop me an email if you have any comments, feedback or just want to say you are reading!
