About Mikael Elkan
Who are you? Will it become too philosophical? Who is someone and if you are, are you so someone all the time?
Most often we are our work. We ask "What are you doing?"-Here you can not answer e.g. "Breathe". It will be deforming. We can also think that you have to "get into something". To turn into is nothing in itself, one must first "become", then you can "get into something".
If you find it rewarding, here's a bit of reading about me.
I thought first that I should be a civil engineer. It kept a couple of years, about to the day when our lecturer thought we could remember from the time we had mopeds. I had never had one. It was my Que. The funniest thing was that Bertel Haarder had been introduced to pay 500,-the deposit that was returned if the study was carried out (and was able to show his receipt). Then it stood on a school teacher. It also took a few years and saw a year as a substitute teacher at various schools. I shouldn't. It was more of a work in a cross field between the social worker, the police and the nutrition supervisor. Finally I arrived at the University of Copenhagen, where I started in Danish, or "Nordic philology", as it was then called.
