Life and such

I am in the middle of a huge baby boom.
More than a dozen babies are expected in my circle of friends this year.

Can you hear Joey Lawrence going “Whoa!”?

I guess that’s what being over 30 is all about (okay, maybe not about Joey going “whoa”…).




One birth announcement I received at the end of 2012 was so special, I just had to share.

Of course it was designed by a proud graphic designer dad:

Speaking of life and such…

Many of you know by now I used to be a psychologist.
Some of my best memories of university include the first year classes ‘Theory of Personality’. We got to watch the Up Series!

Of course as a just out of high school student I was very happy about the video part.


But also this documentary was, and is, so incredibly fascinating.

The Up Series is a series of documentary films, directed by Michael Apted, that follows the lives of fourteen British children since 1964, when they were seven years old. The documentary has had nine episodes spanning 56 years (one episode every seven years). The last one has just been released.

The series is in no way of scientifical value (of course the participants are also influenced by being portrayed) and most participants are very critical of the documentary.
That just makes it even more interesting.
So many facets there.

A must see!
