So I think it’s about time for an update again. I am back from Britain and that all went super-well. You can read more about it on Emanuels blog. It was a good first run and we’ve been invited to the next event in November as well.
Thi is the room we got. Two small beds but definitely nice enough to stay during the event.
The biggest difference between DreamHack and the british LAN is this:
This is me and Emanuel in London, we got a half day in town before we flew home again. Really nice town, I like it a lot, it’s not Tokyo but it’s by far one of the best places in Europe.
In London we bought food at this awesome Japanese food store with everything really Japanese. Totally awesome store, I wish we had one of those in Sweden.
After London I went back to Stockholm and have been hard at work since. Before I talk more about that I want to share something I’ve recently taken an interest in:
I have really gotten into eating nice dinners at restaurants. Like really enjoying the food and taking my time. Get in, order something really nice with a nice glass of wine and just enjoying the food. Then sit and chat and discuss things for a while until the wine is finished. When you feel like you’re getting bored with just talking (and getting a little hungry again) you order in deserts and continue the culinary experience a little while longer. After you’re done completely, no dishes, no hassle, no nothing. You just pay and leave and be done with it! Totally worth the extra cost of the food. I don’t think I would enjoy doing it more than like once a month though, but I’ve only ever done it like once a year, so I think I’m gonna start doing that more.
After coming back from London I switched offices to the offices of another company, for which I will be working a bit as well. They have this super-awesome thing standing on a shelf in the break/meeting room:
It’s the Emmy they won for their “The Truth About Marika” game!
In other great news, Emma has joined me up here in Stockholm — so now I’m not lonely anymore! She came a couple of days ago and she is doing the town while I’m working =P
With the arrival of Emma I have also gone down a bit in my working hours to a lean 8 hours a day =P Which honestly feels a bit more healthy.
