Hi, my name is Henrik and I just turned 28. I’ve lived on three continents – Europe as well as both North and South America – but right now my home is in Gothenburg. I currently live with two wonderful girls, my gorgeous and smart girlfriend and our cute and dumb cat. I’m finishing up a master’s degree in economics, and after that I plan on having an incredible amount of anxiety about what I’m going to do with the rest of my life.

The top five things I consume are probably TV shows, Swedish rap, comedy podcasts, pictures of animals and lentils. When I was younger I used to dream about being a famous musician – now I spend that energy on wishing I had hair again instead. I have also spent a lot of time navigating the transition from a smart child to an aggressively mediocre adult.

I feel like lifting weights is one of the most enjoyable things a person can do and that running was invented as an elaborate prank. If my childhood self could see me now, he would be so disappointed about how many vegetables I eat.

My main drive and motivation in life is not to look like a giant asshole. For my week as @sweden you can expect varied and uneducated input on a whole mess of things. I hope that at least one person apart from myself will have fun! You can find me on Twitter as @ironisktvit every other week of the year.

It's way less embarrassing to buy condoms ever since I started telling the cashier that they're not for me, just for my dumb weiner
