Up until 2014 I was mainly working as a welder, plumbing and ventilation. I picked that line of work because I was really tired of school after I finished high school, and wanted to go out in the world and earn money. Part of that job meant I had to crawl in ventilation pipes under ground, and make sure they weren't leaking. It was during this job I injured a nerve in my leg, which I eventually had to remove surgically. Another effect of this injury was that I was unable to continue working with those types of jobs. Today my leg is almost as good as new, and doesn't cause me any troubles for most of the time. When all this went down I saw my chance to try a completely new line of work, and I eventually managed to get a job for the social services, as a family assessor. I really enjoyed that job, and I stayed there for around 3 years. At the new year between 2017 and 2018 a new legislation took effect, which meant that I could no continue working withour proper education. This was when I realized that if I want to get anywhere in this world, I had to get myself a collage degree.

I spent around 1,5 year working at my senior high school grades, which was necessary in order to get accepted in to the university. In september 2018 I finally got accepted in to a basic psychology course at the university of Gothenburg. During that first semester I realized that this is what I need to do, and by the end of the semester I had decided to continue studying and get a complete B.A. degree in psychology. Betweeen 2018 and 2022 I have manage to get 265 credits at the university, and by now I'm hoping to get accepted in to the mastersprogramme in psychology for the spring semester 2023.

In june 2022 I finally got my B.A. degreee, which was focused at forensic psychology. I wrote my B.A. thesis about the legal (un)certity regarding the percieved credibility for people with Downs syndrom as victims of crime. In Sweden we have no rutines for how the judiciary should treat victims with Downs syndrom, or how they should be interviewed in order to get as accurate testimony as possible. My thesis was about how credible people in general percieve victims with Downs syndrom.

During the pandemic 2020 I noticed that despite the fact that I was a full-time university student as well as almost a full-time worker, I still had some spare time that I needed to make something of. For a while I entertained myself with trying to learn HTML and CSS, and it was fun for a while. Later I got interested in the stock market, which eventually lead me to cryptocurrencies. I spent a lot of time reading up on cryptocurrencied and especially smart contracts, and have been trying to compile what I've learned in my blog.

A couple of months ago, me and my girlfriend moved in together. We both are busy little bees, but while she has a full-time job I am currently unemployed and in need of a job. The only job I don't feel like doing in being a salesperson. Not because I think there's anything wrong with the job, but because I'm 100% convinced that I wouldn't do well as a salesperson. I always strive for improvements in what I do, and as salesperson I believe I would always be subpar. We are all different in temperament and how competition-oriented we are. If you need someone to convince people to buy stuff they don't need, then I'm not our guy.
