#1: What is your must-have tech gadget?

As boring as it sounds: my smartphone. I have everything in that thing, my whole life in digital format. It’s my phone, my camera, my bank, my newspaper… I have my emails and social media and the contact info of all my friends and family. Losing my wallet or car keys would be nothing but a slight inconvenience, losing my phone would be a disaster!

My phone is an LG G4 with the brown leather case. It’s 2 years old and still runs perfectly. The leather case is also ageing really well, a bit of patina only makes it prettier imo. I’m going to keep this phone as long as I can.

Had a date night with the boyfriend yesterday, we went to the movies to see Logan. And holy shit, this was something completely different! ?

I hadn’t heard much about it before. I only saw the trailer once (gorgeous trailer btw, and great choice of music) and saw some vague praise on Twitter, so I didn’t know what I had to expect. Another X-Men movie, I guess, and it IS an X-Men movie, but not like any of the others.

Imaginary Karin - winter scenery

The photo above is not black and white, nature just lost all its colours that day. I love when the frost clings to the trees and make everything white, it’s so pretty!

I always take a lot of photos of nature, but especially in the winter (and autumn). IMO, snow and ice makes everything look just a little bit more magical.

Here’s a photo dump from the past month or so. Scroll to the bottom if you’re just here for the dog. πŸ˜‰

Hey, new year! Yay! Or something.

To be honest, 2017 isn’t off to the best start: I’m officially looking for a new job.

The company I’ve been working for is shutting down, so I don’t have much choice. It’s very sad as I loved working there and was lucky to have skilled and inspiring colleagues, most of which are dear friends outside of work as well. But it’s over, and now I’m feeling a strange mix och fear and excitement. On one hand, I’ve always liked adventures and am not afraid of changes, on the other, I don’t know where I’m going or what I’m doing and it’s a bit scary.

I’ve also been lucky enough to never having to actively look for a job in almost 10 years, so I feel horribly out of the loop (what is a CV again?) And I just know my shy introverted ass suck at interviews.

Still, I’m fairly optimistic. I actually have a few leads already, and if I’ve managed to stay employed this long I should be able to trick someone else into hiring me. πŸ˜›

Imaginary Karin - Christmas bullfinch 2016

This is a Christmas card I made for my parents. It’s watercolour on watercolour paper + coloured pencils and ink. Size is about A5 (21 x 14,8 cm).

The bird is a Eurasian Bullfinch, one of the cutest birds we have if you ask me. Especially the males with their bright red chests. During the summer they live deep in the forest and you hardly see them at all, but in the winter you can sometimes spot them around the birdfeeders in people’s gardens. It’s the perfect little Christmas finch. πŸ™‚

I honestly can’t believe it’s almost Christmas Eve… My holiday spirit hasn’t really been here this year, but hopefully it’ll kick in tomorrow. In Sweden we tend to celebrate on the “eve” of things, so our Christmas is on the 24th instead of the 25th. We’re going to be at Markus’s parents with his sister and her family. I think it’ll be nice and relaxed, I’m looking forward to it.

Anyway, I hope you have fun whenever or whatever you celebrate! Happy holidays! πŸ˜€ ?
