I wanted to spend this day, or at least an hour of it, reading blogs and posts but I, once again, realized I lacked the time. Why? Because I spent the day browsing the Christmas Market at Tivoli in Copenhagen, Denmark with my lovely girlfriend. Pictures follow: - F H Hakansson
I spent the weekend baking, in case you were wondering where I went. Now, when I'm back home, I feel absolutely exhausted. Never realized how tiring it is to be a proud baker in a baker's hat! Have you done your holiday baking yet? (probably not, I'm really early on this one, but are you … Continue reading Back from baking!
After being in a digital queue for over a month my iPhone 5 finally arrived. One of my favorite Apps, one I highly suggest you get if you are on i-devices, is Vocabology. It gathers all the "Word of the day" words from from sites such as Merriam-Webster, Dictionary, Wordsmith, Yahoo Education, and complies them … Continue reading I need Apps!
Those of you who follow me on Twitter (@fhhakansson) know I went to Hamburg during Halloween. I haven't said much about it so I'd like to post some pictures from the trip. I'll probably use most of them for posts later on but it doesn't heart to add a small gallery. I stayed at Heikotel … Continue reading Pictures from Hamburg
Today is my birthday which means I have a perfectly good reason to sit back, relax, and do nothing for 24h. But I won't - because I have things to do. After reading a bit of Atlas Shrugged (what an incredible novel) I went back to editing Project 1. Now, that I have done so, I … Continue reading Today is my birthday.
I have been back for almost two weeks and only recently began to edit Project 1 (my second novel). In so many ways this is, and probably always will be, the most important text I have written because, as most of you know, I wrote the first sentence of it almost eight years ago when … Continue reading When writing becomes haunting
It's been an awesome - but tiring - trip. I could spend days recalling all the amazing experiences I had but it would simply take too much time. I'll post some highlighting photos here to quickly recapture my trip from Copenhagen to New York to San Francisco to Santa Barbara, via Big Sur, to Las Vegas … Continue reading Back from America!
After some hectic days I am now lying in a hotel room in New York. The AC fan whimpers loudly and the neighbor's chat with some invisible friend liven up the slumbering street. It is late at night and I am tired. There is much to do and see. I will keep you up to … Continue reading I’m in America
How time flies. For the past week I've been working on a short story and hoped to have time to write another afterwards before I go to America. Well - no. Time flies, as they say, and when I finished the short story I not only realized I hadn't written anything here in nearly a … Continue reading Time Passes
I was going to write a poem today. I was also going to read through some other blogs and leave a few comments. Instead I spent the whole day cleaning my apartment and now I just can't come up with anything to write. Tomorrow, however, I'll do all of the above! So for those of … Continue reading Today I cleaned. Tomorrow I’ll write.
