Hi! My name is Anna.

I study architecture at KTH and live alone in my grandmothers old apartment, which I’ve renovated the past year. It’s in Östermalm in Stockholm, 200 meters from where I was born.

I’m 23 years old and I do all the young inner-city, vaguely intellectual, bourgeois, Whit Stillman-movie type things – look at art, frequent the clubs, eat good food, express opinions that matter to no one, have facials.

I’m a middle child in a loud family. I’m also a Libra. I’m in Mensa but I don’t draw any conclusions from that.

My dad was in finance and my mother stayed at home with me and my sisters (they’re alive, but don’t do those things anymore). I partly grew up in the city and partly on our 18th century estate an hour north of here, where we had horses, dogs, sheep, deer, cows, hunting grounds, and not many peers. I briefly went to boarding school but I had issues with authority.

I have a cat, Oia, a vorsteh, Tibbe, a dachshund, Peggy, a labrador, Viggo, and an Anglo-Arabian/Swedish halfblood horse, Tica. I visit the zoo in Djurgården almost every week. I think it’s true what Gordon Gekko said about WASPs and animals.

I’m not a crazy libertarian but I’ve shaken hands with Rand Paul.

I recently got a job at IKEA. Once, Ingvar Kamprad drove me in a wheelbarrow in France. The two things are non-related.

I don’t have a driver’s license and I’m afraid of bikes, so I get around by walking. My week at @Sweden might become something of a very inefficient tour-guide of Stockholm and its architecture. Or not. I don’t know. I’m hung over.

My normal twitter account is @annabjorklund and my instagram name is annabjorklund. My real life name, too.

some bitch stole my gig and refuses to play makonnen, saying the ”crowd” won’t agree
I explained to her that the crowd has an undercut
