Curators of Sweden

Every week, a new person is @sweden. For seven days, she or he tweets about life in Sweden, love or work, sharing opinions and ideas along the way. Then, someone else does the same – but differently. Follow our country through our curators. Welcome to Sweden.

Hi there! My name is Rebecka, and I’m a 31-year-old queer woman born and raised in Lund. While I’ve studied in a few different places, including Canada, I always seem to return to my home city. I have a degree in Human Osteology (yup – that’s bones!) but I currently work as the admin and coordinator at a dental lab in Malmö.

I am proud to call myself both a nerd and a geek, and when I get into something I go all in. My hobbies shift, but a longstanding one is board games, and I always want to make things. Lately that’s been jewellery, but who knows, next week I might get back into making clothes, or maybe baking! I love weird, and sometimes unsettling, things. Hey – I did say I studied bones for years! Oh, and my newest obsession is escape rooms. Can’t get enough!

Let’s talk about everything this week! I’m sure there will be some morbid topics (you could say I am a Master of Death with my degree after all), but also talk of sexuality, music, sweets, escaping rooms in less than an hour… frankly, who knows where we’ll end up!

But please know that I will not discuss the outcome of the Swedish election.

The rest of the year you can find me at @pockifish, both on Twitter and Instagram.

@mostylicious Fruit! Tonight I’m gonna have pizza left overs with ham, pineapple, and banana. Of course also cheese and tomato sauce.

@beatjuice2 I honestly don’t know. And it scares me.

@Hmaailm I’d say it’s about being a practitioner vs a fan. Like this article says:

@sweden Sept. 23, 2018, 10:45 a.m.

@Chopythes @lazycuttlefish Might have to give that one a go!

@sweden Sept. 23, 2018, 10:29 a.m.

@nyt_ja_anja Haha thanks! Which upcoming ones? @Hozier and @yearsandyears in Copenhagen, and then @FirstAidKitBand in Malmö. I’m excited!

@sweden Sept. 23, 2018, 10:27 a.m.

@merijnfredriks You know what, I actually haven’t done that since I became an adult! Should change that. As a kid I…

@SimonMonger Sadly there are indeed only about 356 of us. Well no that’s a lie. It’s more like 400 but the other ones can’t use twitter.

@sweden Sept. 23, 2018, 10:25 a.m.

I only really listen to one podcast and its British. So retweeting so other Swedes might help! What am I missing an…

@newrulesnewlife What do you want to do? What kind of stuff do you want to see?

@sweden Sept. 23, 2018, 10:23 a.m.

@susan_kemp Oooo. Hmmmm. I am pretty fond of their cover of Universal Soldier. Otherwise maybe Wolf? Or This Old Routine.

@sweden Sept. 23, 2018, 10:15 a.m.

@trucemoose Oh man. I don’t know! Malmö keeps me employed? 😜 I’m sure I’d love Gothenburg if I lived there. Only vi…

I’ve never been a big concert person (give me musicals any day though) and went to my first show when I was 21. In…

@sweden Sept. 23, 2018, 10:01 a.m.

@newrulesnewlife That it is overall pretty nice and not what tabloids abroad like to bring up when wanting to scare people.

@sweden Sept. 23, 2018, 10 a.m.

@Greeniecg Get new ones! I’m very happy with mine. Took quite some time to choose but it worked out. My prescriptio…

@ThatWhiteSoxFan Wow that’s a loaded question. Maybe shouldn’t get into that too deeply? But universal health care…
