Private dancer

THE BORED HORSE 🐴 Issue 32 Private dancer Hi! Like many of you, I was sad to hear about Tina Turner leaving us. She was a staple for me growing up, and has stayed there ever since.

Email service woes

THE BORED HORSE 🐴 Issue 31 Email service woes Hi! If you’re a long time follower of me, you might recall that I tend to return to email. Not just email as a platform and a means to communicate – I do love email! – but finding an email provider that gets the job done. I’ve tried many over the...

THE BORED HORSE 🐴 Issue 28 On keeping a journal Hi! My journaling app (Day One) says I’ve been updating it daily for 1,229 days in a row.

On work/life balance

THE BORED HORSE 🐴 Issue 26 On work/life balance Hi! I came back to snow and sleet in Stockholm the other day, from a short trip to Nice, France. Stepping out of that plane into a winter that won't ease up properly here in Sweden was, well, horrible. I don't think I've understood how much I've...

On getting older

THE BORED HORSE 🐴 Issue 25 On getting older Hi! I celebrated my 43rd birthday on Wednesday this week. It was a nice day, I’d managed to move almost all agency work off my plate. I worked with things pertaining to my upcoming fantasy novel, Automatonen (in Swedish only, for now), including the...

I used to review games for a living 🎮

THE BORED HORSE 🐴 Issue 24 I used to review games for a living Hi! I started my first company on my eighteenth birthday with the brilliant business plan of “not getting up early in the morning”. Money would have to come later, I figured, and they did. This was 1998 and I had a somewhat...

Single purpose device 1️⃣

THE BORED HORSE 🐴 Issue 23 Single purpose device Hi! I’ve been struggling with my iPhone lately. It’s just not good at everything it does. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great device, but what is its purpose? It’s an everything box, a magical slate of glass that’s more than enough for most people....
