I thought I’d take a break from reading Karl Marx for tomorrow’s lecture on ‘Politics and Consumption’ and catch up on my blog instead, as I am a liiittle bit behind right now. This upcoming week is promising to be very fun yet extremely busy – our professor is flying to Stockholm from the UK once a month so the lectures that woud normally be spread out during a course of two months are going to take place three times (during three days). Oh well.
What not to miss off-campus next week.
Tuesday / STHLM Tech Meetup is a monthly event for start-ups or people genuinely interested in start-ups. The event is usually two-hours long and consists of a short presentation of the news from the Swedish start-up scene, a panel discussion with the invited guests (investors) and three pitches. It’s super fun and in English! (if you reserve a standing ticket, come early to queue, they let people with reserved sits first) -> link .
Wednesday / The annual 24SEVEN fashion show organized by Foreningen Ekonomerna is this Wednesday at Café Opera. More info on how to purchase tickets can be found here .
Back to tech.
Thursday / Collective mentorship night #2 – The Future of Work is organised by a lovely organization SheSays. There will be coffee, snacks, panel discussion, workshop and wait until you hear the best part… the event will take place @ King! You know, the company that is responsible for your addiction to Candy Crush. It looks like the event is full now but register to get on the waiting list. Also, everyone is welcome! More info here.
Satuday / If your
iPhone smartphone is not able to showcase your inner Annie Leibowitz and you personally know all of your Instagram followers, maybe it’s time to purchase a proper camera at a Camera Flea market this Saturday (I know I need to!) -> here.
Medieval festival in Kungsträdgården – in case you thought you moved to Sweden to live with the vikings.
Sunday is without any doubt the best day of the week for two reasons:
1) It is totally OK to eat pancakes with ice cream and bluberries, waffles with chicken (otherwise called wraffles) and eggs benedict. Not that anyone can stop you from doing that any other day, but, as you know, society has said ‘yes’ to Sunday brunches so we need to comply.
2) I will post a new list of events of the upcoming week. Stay tuned!
Have a lovely week,
