This is my very first blog post! I have written essays and articles and public comments but never my very own blog post on my very own website! I am very excited. I want to tell you about more about how I had the idea to create my own blog. Being a very 90s girl I love the Internet and my phone and social media. Sometimes a bit too much. When you look at your phone in the morning before saying hello to the person next to you? That’s when the feeling started creeping in that my phone was taking over my life.
Simultaneously, looking at photos of friends and famous people all day long makes you compare yourself to others too much, for no reason and even though they might be on the other side of the world and have nothing in common with the life you might live. Therefore I want to try to concentrate on the good things in life again. Like art, really good food you love, talking to your friends face to face, spending time alone, sleeping well, reading a good book or a print newspaper and drinking nice white tea (or good red wine for that matter :)). The list is endless and very different for everyone reading this, but I think we can all agree that this world is spinning too fast at the moment and that we should all take a time out once in a while.
When was the last time you sat in a church alone, just to admire the impressive architecture? When was the last time you went out for a meal alone just to be able to really taste it? When is the last time you really took the time to see an exhibition in full? Or the last time you actually read the daily paper back to front? I hope this blog will inspire you all to do some of these things.
