    The place to heal

    It’s humid and scorching hot. The yellow Thai morning light paints the yoga shala beautifully. Birds singing outside. The teacher has wild brown hair and an animal vibe. Sophia. Big eyes and confident moves. Wild, free and close to nature. Instantly she gets my full attention. And I trust her. As we are moving through 90 minutes of yoga. After challenging liberating hip openers, jumps, breathwork and twists, we enter the last pose. Relaxing in Savasana. Accompanied by Devi Prayer. I close my eyes and notice I can finally breathe deeper. My breath is long, even and smooth. There is no interruption, nothing in the way, it’s just a soft…

    Who cares about hoes?

    I could choose not to. I could choose to sigh and move one. Ignore. Forget. Think that oh well, it’s a man’s world. But I choose not to. When a man uses the word hoes in his insta story. When a man spreads his legs next to me on the bus so I get less space. Then I choose to question and I choose to spread back. This is not because I want to cause a scene or be mean, or because I’m an angry feminist. I am a happy feminist with hopes. We all have a responsibility to form the future we want. Equality doesn’t come like that. And…

A box of chocolate, but not any box of chocolate, but this one. When I saw it I was cracking up because I associate that brand so strongly with old people. That’s the box my grandfather would always buy for Christmas. I mean it’s nothing wrong with it,…

    SKAM – serien som slukade min söndag och tog mig tillbaka till livet som 16-åring

    Alltså, har ni sett SKAM? En norsk serie som nu släppts på SVT Play, om Eva och hennes värld när hon börjar ettan på gymnasiet. Det var Linn i podden “I nöd och lust” som tipsade om denna och idag när jag var lite söndagstrött började jag kolla några avsnitt, eller snarare nästan en hel säsong. Och fastnade pladask. Det är verkligen som att kastas tillbaks till gymnasietiden med första kärleken, med jakten på sig själv, med alla erfarenheter som blev lärdomar och steg mot att hitta integritet och självkänsla. Hångel i korridoren. De coola. De nördiga. Hemmafesterna. Rivaliteten mellan tjejer. Men också pepp mellan tjejer. Killar som är helt uppslukade i…
