10 things about me – are you sure you wan’t to know?

So after I commented on Simone‘s blog post (who by the way is a wonderful person!) she told me to write my own 10 things. Or as I said “You really don’t want to know 10 things about me, it will creep you out!”.

It might not, but there are things about me that not many people know – but I’ll share some of. Here are my 10 things:

1. I have made friends and connected with people who I admire, I have never met them – so far it’s purely online. Mr.Tookles, Simply by Simone, YOUnfolded and KG are some of them. I communicate with them via blogging and other platforms.

Thank you for being such amazing human beings and inspiring to the world, each in your own different way.

2. I’m a virgo – I was born 3 months premature in 1987, yes apparently I am turning 30 this year something I find odd as I only registered the year I turned 23 and 26 in my head. And yes – I do have my issues from being born premature, but I try not to think about it to much.

What happened in between 23-26 and now 30 I have no idea.

3. My anxiety is a weird gnome living inside my head, who ticks on very strange things. Specially about being late for things, so I prefer to show up 1 hour early (trying to beat it, trust me – I even managed to complete my psychologists goal of being late. I was late last session by 1 minute! We are both impressed by that!).

I am happy I am no longer afraid of talking about it and knowing what it is. I have come a long way over the past year when it comes to dealing with something I most likely have had my entire life or at least for as long as I can remember.

4. I don’t like wearing socks or shoes. Not even sandals, I do it because I have to. But my feet are so warm that I often sweat a lot on my feet, and we all know how that works out in the end.

5. I love writing, but I feel like I haven’t found my path in blogging. It kind of feels like a struggle, I have no plan of ever earning money or have it as a bacon bringing thing. But I just wish I could find my way. I put a lot of pressure on myself when it comes to writing – so it often means that I just give up and/or scrap a lot of the things I write. I have a trillion ideas in my head, but they never make it on to a page – because I never find the courage either to do it or post it. I wish there was someone to help me or that I actually had an interesting enough life that it would be something to write about.

6. I wish I had a more creative side of me, so I could contribute to the world by writing, drawing or just being more amazing than I am at something artistic. I am really self-conscious (thank you anxiety and perfectionism) so if I actually manage to try something – I again give up before I become good at it.

7. I love neon colours. I don’t know why – I just do, they make me happy. Especially neon pink! And I don’t like pink in general that much.

8. I took me 20+ years for me to actually like the name my parents gave me, I love my last name (as it’s a protected last name/surname and it’s a family name from my dad’s side).

9. I can get agitated if my boyfriend (whom I have been with for 7 years, lived with for 6,5 years and been engaged to for 1 year) tells me he is coming home late and then comes earlier then expected. It’s not that I don’t like him, but I do enjoy being on my own!

10. I avoid stepping on manhole cover’s no matter what! As I belive there is no one to hit me on the back three times to reverse the bad luck at all times. It might have become a bad habit, seriously. So I most likely have not stepped on one over that past 15-20 years!

And just two extra for the fun of it:

11. I have never lived anywhere else but Norway, but I sound like an American.

12. I love traveling, except for the traveling part!


And now to the more important stuff, what are your 10 things? And how are you doing today?

  1. There’s a lot of pressure when blogging to build or target your ‘audience’, but you’d be surprised by what other people find interesting. Don’t listen to that inner critic and just write about what you want to. A plan and a structure helps but no-one is going to shoot you down just for winging it.

    Most of the people I consider true friends I only know online. I met my wife online. Other friends have moved to the other side of the world and the only way we stay in touch is online. Relationships can cross any distance.

    Don’t be so hard on yourself: you are creative. Everyone is in their own way. You don’t have to write the next best seller or churn out masterpieces to find the creativity in every day. Give yourself permission to experiment and try things just because why not? Don’t worry so much about the end result x

    1. Can we hug now? 😀 I love your comment! It’s constructive and helpful, so it comes highly appreciated.

      I’m not sure what my “end line” is, I’m like a balloon – we float as long as there is wind 😀

      1. Hugs are always acceptable!

        I’m glad as it was intended to be❤️ Life is literally too short to try to measure up to other people’s expectations or avoid trying new things for fear of failing. It’s not easily done, I know, and it’s taken me a long time to let go a lot of my own negativity about myself and not ‘being enough’ but I’m trying. At the end of the day your life is your own and the only person you really have to answer to is yourself x

      2. I know, but I’m not the nicest one to answer to. I’m working on it, trust me.

        I have a lot of ideas that pop into my head when on the bus (I commute a total of minimum 3 hours a day), but I can’t be bothered to write on my phone or bring my laptop with me (other then the one I need for work). They also pop in when the option would be weird to just go “Sorry I need to write, I have this idea in my head”. So I’m not sure how to deal with it really.
        I find that pretty frustrating.
