    Mind-blowing video. You should check out the filmmaker's other stuff on vimeo as well. I'm really getting sucked into this whole filmmaking thing, with hundreds of ideas jumping out of my head - I plan to learn more about it (esp. documentaries) in 2012 and get started on my first project!

    I'm learning a lot about branding right now, and the more I do, the more I see how so many businesses fail at it and bore the shit out of me.

    One thing about branding that really lands with me is the idea to figure out your WHY and your values and beliefs. I feel like so many people out there have no idea what their brand stands for and if they do they totally suck at communicating it.

    Whatever I buy or commit to financially, one thing I always need to know is this: How does the product or service impact my life? Why does it deserve to exist in this world, how does it make it a better place?

    If you know of examples (apart from the boring usual such as Apple etc.), then pass them on to me!

    I took the photo today walking home from the subway (Berlin). I find new street art every day. It's good to see that people are active when I'm not looking. It makes my day to see new stuff on the streets I walk every day. I'm thinking about doing a Berlin street art photography project before I leave.

    I'm for the revolution of live. For 100 % self-determination.

    The highest manifestation of life consists in this: that a being governs its own actions. A thing which is always subject to the direction of another is somewhat of a dead thing. ~Saint Thomas Aquinas

    “Quitting, for me, means not giving up, but moving on; changing direction not because something doesn’t agree with you, but because you don’t agree with something. It’s not a complaint, in other words, but a positive choice, and not a stop in one’s journey, but a step in a better direction. Quitting-whether a job or a habit-means taking a turn so as to be sure you’re still moving in the direction of your dreams.”

    Wowsers, my blogpost from Tuesday on How to Live Anywhere has gone a bit viral...more than 1,000 visits today!

    Also, my top three random search terms with which people found my blog today:
    1. "stop complaining of the weather and learn to dance in it"
    2. "lifes shitty why do we try to live"
    3. "how to make a big dream a reality"

    I also had two visitors from Norway today in my apartment: A lovely journalist and her photographer. I guess me and my 119 things are going to be featured in Norway's biggest business newspaper's weekend supplement soon.

    All that's left to say I think is: WTF.

    This male world bores me to death...are we in 2012 or have I missed something?? This is the third article I come across in a week that deals with employment and gender inequalities.. This sucks THIS bad. Sorry boys, but I think a female dominated world would be bloody freakin awesome. (oh and did I mention much more peaceful?)
