WordPress just congratulated me on my anniversary. Apparently it’s four years since I registered my blog. Cool. Not that I have been blogging the whole time, kept a yearlong break between Spring 2012 and Spring 2013. But still. Happy Anniversary to Management by Chia. This beautiful card is from The Two Pink Ladies.   Advertisements

It might not be the +21 degrees I had last week in Brussels. It might not be the spring I’ll have in Paris next. But it’s the best promise of life that I know of. This little blue flower right here… Waiting for Bob the Builder one last time. Exactly eleven [!] months after I […]

Had an internal struggle with myself regarding what kind of blog post to write today. “Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgiastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter–tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther…. And one fine morning– So we beat […]

Continuing on the updates post from Monday, I’ve been thinking about making a Facebook page for Management by Chia. The idea hasn’t moved out of the parking spot yet, mostly because I don’t really know why I would have a Facebook page… Perhaps for posting all those quotes I adore… But then I get cold […]

Warning. This will be the most boring post you’ve read on Management by Chia perhaps ever. Some of you might have noticed a new ”button” here on my blog:  Follow me on bloglovin’. For those of you not yet familiar with bloglovin’, it’s a simple and aesthetically nice blog reader. Like a Facebook feed but […]

Spring equinox. Vårdagjämning in my language. I can’t think of a more beautiful word in Swedish to be honest. I feel as happy as this tulip. Hopefully my happiness will last longer though, the tulip fell apart the day after I took the pic… Since pretty much forever, the spring equinox has been observed as […]

Another Monday has arrived. I already uploaded a Paddy Post on the other blog, but couldn’t resist a short one here as well… This picture is from St. Patrick’s Day two years ago, celebrated at an Irish bar in Paris. Can’t remember the name of the place, but it’s basically around the corner from the […]

Okay, Monday. You win. Although I don’t think showing up dressed as Thursday is fair play. The day started well enough. Since almost everyone from the department were either on conferences abroad or attending a seminar out of town, it was only me and the assistant at work. Inspired by the calm corridor I managed […]

“Goddamned you have thick hair. Go away, I can’t stand looking at you… No, wait. Come back! Can I touch it?” The Finnish way of giving a compliment. Clearly. About five people out of five around turned around to see what the shouting was all about. I just sighed and tilted my head. Mumbled something […]

It was a battle of giants. Monday won the first round when the alarm sounded. I don’t think one should have to work when enjoying one’s birthday. But then my mother called and sang for me so that made it 1-1. When arriving at work, I found a bottle of bubbly from my boss – […]

You get a card. Enclosed is the information-leaflet-thingy from a non-stick cooking pan. The card says “Do read the enclosed and play ‘spot the most ridiculous sentence’…” First you laugh at the whole set-up. Then you choke on your laughter, what if you cannot spot the sentence your friend is referring to? Will that make […]

“The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights”  – Gloria Steinem With this wonderful picture from artists Sarah and Catherine Satrun I’d like to wish you all a wonderful day.
