Good morning/day/evening/night to you all out there!
I have to confess that this blog is an invention which took a long time to finally manifest itself into the virtual world. But now that it’s here, I’m unbelievably grateful for all the support and positive comments you have provided me with! I was truly afraid of having to face the dark side of the social media with all the hate and trolls spreading only negativity and sorrow around, but with your support I think I can proudly stand up against anything! Thank you to every kind soul out there that has read (and hopefully enjoyed) my writings. You truly mean the world to me! ❤
Today I would like to tell the whole back story of why I wanted to start this blog – and how terribly long it took me to have even the preliminary skills and courage to put myself and this content out there. I never have (and hopefully never will) taken any like, share or comment for granted – especially when all this is still relatively new to me.
I actually once had a pretty childish bet with one of my closest friends. I’m not going to tell you what all that was about, only that the consequences for him would have been to wear a kilt at his working place for one full day. Sadly, I was the one who lost so as my punishment I was to start a blog where I would openly share my thoughts and expressions about the world. That was back in 2013 then. And I founded this blog as late as April 2018.
As you may have already noticed, this blog doesn’t necessarily fall into any given or fixed category. I hope that in the future my dreams will come true and this will truly become a full-time nomadic travel blog – with maybe even weekly vlogs included! But even then I want to keep the content real but very creative as well. I think after spending the majority of my childhood alone in the countryside surrounded by books and films, I’ve developed myself a very culture relativist view on life. Studying two different majors in two different faculties has also helped to learn how to see that there’s always multiple different sides to the story. After all, even science is often highly narrative.
My partner actually wrote a song about this; calling it being a ‘rainbow mind’. Also for me, it often times feels as if my brain would be filled with colourful wires, connected a little bit differently that most other people. Or then I just have gotten used to paying attention to details and combining them in a unique (and rather post-modern, I’d say) way in my head. Ultimately it all flows out as phrases and clauses that follow some sort of crazy – and hopefully entertaining – story.
I would once again want to remind you that I am truly here for you: if you have any questions, comments or requests about my content, I’d be delighted to read them in the comments section. Also, I’d love to see my blog getting new followers from all parts of the world so you guys sharing this and inviting your own normal or nomadic friends to follow me would make me so happy!
