What I'm Doing Now

I first heard about the concept of a "Now" page from Derek Sivers in an interview with Tim Ferriss where he described his "Now" page. I found the idea fascinating, the idea is that it should answer the question "What do you have going on now?". If you feel inspired to create a "Now" page like I did you can find more information here.

Finishing Last Courses and Preparing for Master Thesis

I am now wrapping up the final courses of my 5-year engineering degree at Chalmers University of Technology. I still have my master's thesis to be done in the fall, but I attended my last lecture the other day as I will not be taking any classes in addition to my thesis this fall. I have two final exams coming up at the end of May and then I will have finished all my exams at Chalmers. It feels a bit crazy, time has flown.

Me and my thesis partner have also submitted our thesis proposal for the fall. We will be studying innovation ecosystems in the energy sector of Western Sweden. I think it is a very interesting topic and highly relevant to today. The world is consuming more energy for each day that passes and at the same time there are ambitions to transition to energy sources that emit less carbon dioxide. This will require new innovations and investments to make into a reality. The transition is highly complex and will require the collaboration of many actors within the ecosystem if it is to succeed.

Enjoying the Summer Weather

We have been fortunate to have some great weather in Gothenburg for the last few weeks and I have been trying to take advantage of it. I am trying to spend a lot of time outdoors in the sun and swimming in the ocean. It feels like we might get a warm and sunny May only for the summer to be grey and rainy so I want to take full advantage. I have been trying out different spots along the coast for swimming that I can cycle to. Many of them are only a 20-30 minute bike ride which is great. The fact that Gothenburg is so close to nature, both in terms of the ocean and forests plays a big role in why I like living here so much.

Summer Plans

Me and my girlfriend are planning to do more hiking this summer and so I have been looking att getting myself some proper hiking boots. We are also in the process of deciding where we want to go. Most likely we will try to hike in the Nordics as it is closer by and there are lots of beautiful places to discover. If you have any hiking tips I am all ears.

I hope you enjoyed reading about what I am up to now.
