My thought now is, why should it be so hard to get to know new people? When I was little, the sandbox worked very well to meet new friends, but it feels a bit wrong now. Where should you go to meet people who you can hang out with? The pub? The gym? The grocery store?
And what should you say or do? Maybe I should just walk up to a total stranger with a friendly face and say: "Hi, my name is Mirja, I just moved back to Sweden and don’t know a single person here and I'm sick and tired off sitting at home every weekend doing nothing what so ever. Fancy a coffee? "
The reactions would probably make it worth, but with my luck, the police would surely be called and either I would end up in a mattress dressed room wearing a straitjacket, or in jail. So that plan is probably out of the question ...
Now maybe it’s time to tell you a little bit about myself instead ...
Where do I start? Perhaps it should not tell you the whole story of my life because it would probably be far too boring to read so I will try to make it short and sweet instead.
I just moved back to Sweden after having lived in Dublin for nine months. There I worked as an IT Support at IBM. Now here in Stockholm, I work as an IT technician at Carema.
Basically, I am a happy and optimistic person so even when I'm angry I have a smile on my face, which may not always be good as people tend to think it looks fun when I'm angry. Call me naive if you want but I have always believed that everything will work out in one way or another, and so far it has worked very well for me to think that way. Another feature I have is that I talk way too much for my own good.
So if you now read this entire presentation and found that I actually sounded interesting you are welcome to send me a few nice words.
