Lazy vs Ambitious

I’ve been thinking… This week it’s back to school for me again. This year I am starting a new master program at KTH in Stockholm. I say new because last fall I started a master at SU and well, I can only describe that as a fiasco. This year I am doing a program in the Economics of Innovation and Growth and yeah, it probably is as nerdy as it sounds.  Good thing I am a nerd and very excited. I even looked up the literature list for my first courses and started reading in advance.

So, whats the problem? Well, the problem is that I somehow have the ability to be thoroughly lazy and incredible ambitious at the same time.  As a result, I got the book but it is so hard for me to actually sit down and read it. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve read about a third but my ambitious self expected the whole book to be done by now. It really bothers me that I have the ability to, completely guilt free, do absolutely nothing for hours and at the same time want to excel at a Hermione Granger level.

I think for me it’s about mental preparation. I can’t just decide to do something and then focus on that task until it’s done, I don’t have that kind of self discipline. I need to take time to convince myself of why I should do something and why it will be worth it in the end.

Right, so now I will try to take my own advice and convince myself to sit down and read for a while. I might be excited to know everything about Advanced Microeconomic Theory, but it is quite a tedious read as you can imagine. Wish me luck!

The BODYCOMBAT life

For the past two and a half years I’ve been a Les Mills BODYCOMBAT instructor. It is truly the best thing I’ve ever done! When you find something in your life that always, without exception, makes you smile you don’t let it go!
 

So it’s safe to say most of my day somehow revolves around bodycombat. There’s a lot of work behind the one hour class… looking at the masterclass, reading choreo notes, listening to the music, scripting (I mostly script in my head… oups) and practice, practice, practice. But when you love it, all that time is worth it. In fact it’s what you live for!

I guess this is my way of saying there’s going to be lots of workout related posts! I hope you’re up for it!

See you soon!

The coolest cup ever

So, when I was at the west coast this summer I bought the coolest cup ever. You know when you find some small little shop that looks super cute and you just see something magical   literally – and just have to have it? Well, that happened to me this time… and let me just add that I’m the biggest Harry Potter fan ever

Right? RIGHT? Best thing I got all summer! And that’s true even though Reebok released the new Les Mills collection. I’m just sayin’

Alright, so I guess you can call this my welcome back post! It’s actually the third time around that I’m restarting this blog, but, third time’s a charm right? I hid all my old posts because hello!? who was I even back then? We’ll see how long I can keep it up this time.

See you soon!
