The 45:th week of 2016 has officially begun, and so has now also my journey with Originally My.
Welcome! My name is My Johansson and I’m going to write on this blog/website/online magazine! I’m not a big fan of labelling things (therefore the many slashes), it just creates restrictions and preconceptions which I don’t want here 🙂
Since I decided to create my own blog/website/online magazine I’ve thought a lot about exactly how I’m going to start. I have lots of exciting posts planned for the future (a few is already written) but this very first post… It’s been hard to figure out what to do with. But now I’ve made the decision to create a little interview with myself for you to get to know me and this, well… I’m just going to call it a blog. So, enjoy this very exclusive interview with me, by me.
◊ What am I going to write about here on Originally My?
There is going to be a lot of fashion, makeup, food and life-hacks, especially the first two because it’s easy and kind of therapeutic for me to make posts about since I have a big interest in the subjects. But I’m also going to write about confidence, anxiety, opinions and other related topics. In conclusion: sugar and spice and everything nice, plus those things that aren’t so nice but still needs to be talked about.
◊ Why am I writing in English?
Why not? Yes, I’m from Sweden and I have a Swedish family and yada yada. But there is a lot more people speaking English than there is speaking Swedish. English is the third most spoken language in the world with over 700 million speakers. The number of Swedish speaking people is not even 0,013% of that. So, by writing in English more people can take part of my posts. It’s also a great way for me to develop my English skills.
◊ Who am I?
Well, you know that my name is My, that I’m from Sweden and if you click your way into “About” you’re going to see that I’m sixteen years old and a few other things. But that doesn’t say much about who I am. Does it?
I’m going to be honest with you. I am a girl who has had, and still has, a lot of issues. Already at the age of nine my confidence and self worth was very low. It’s better now but I still feel like nothing some days. I’ve had a lot of crappy relationships with friends and some unfortunate incidents love-wise, due to this a have trust-issues. I’m struggling with performance anxiety every day which has left me crying at the schools toilets a couple of times just this semester. I suck at letting things go and can get mad about things that happened five years ago. I can go on, but I think I’ve made my point.
Even though I have a lot of problems to deal with I’m a good person. I’m really intelligent, kind, trustable and I’ll always be there when someone needs me. And with every negative thing comes a positive one. My low confidence has made me want to raise everyone elses. My performance anxiety gives me amazing results in everything I do. My struggle to let things go means that I also hold on to good things. All of my problems have made me stronger and helped me realise what I’m truly capable of. I know that I can accomplish anything as soon as I decide to which is one of my biggest strengths.
This was just a few questions about the things I thought you wanted to know. Things that I wanted you to know. But if I missed anything, all you have to do is leave a comment and I will get back to you as soon as I can!
I hope I’ve peaked your interest and made you want stay around! If not, I think you should come back in a couple of weeks and give my actual posts a chance. Stay gorgeous love! xoxo
