Right now I am lying on the floor on my yoga mat, procrastinating on exercising and I am writing a blogpost about goals and how I want to achieve them. You can clearly see the irony, right? But whatever, I am going to workout after I finished writing this blogpost.
So this is the first post on this blog and I kind of want to introduce myself and say what I want to be doing here, mostly so that I get a plan, but if you want to know more about it keep on reading. I am now in grade twelve and I have been learning English since grade six, which is kind of a pretty long time (about 6,5 years to be exact) and since a few years I feel like I am not really improving anymore. I mean, my English is not that bad, my reading and listening skills (Netflix and chill in English is really helping here :P) are kind of good but when I should ‘produce’ something in English I feel very insecure, and by the term ‘produce’ I mean speaking or writing. And I feel like it has been this way since forever now. I don’t know but I think it’s called intermediate plateau or something, correct me if I’m wrong. That is basically why I started this blog. I want to become a better English writer. To achieve that, I clearly needed a blog because, well, I am a digital native. Just kidding, the main reason is that I feel like a blog would motivate me to actually put in the time to write something in English. If you wonder what the topic of the texts will be, my answer is: I seriously don’t know. I’ll probably write about whatever comes to my mind.
But as you probably noticed in the first sentence, I am an extremely lazy person :roll:, so I need some rules but not to much, because that would overwhelm me and then I would not do anything at all… to stop babbling around: my goal is to post once a week. And I am not setting myself any more rules here, that’s it. I think that is actually super manageable and to be honest it sounds really fun right now.
I guess that was it for my first post. I am hereby ending this entry with an absolutely deep and inspiring quote I picked (basically one of my old WhatsApp statuses because they are always super deep):
once everybody starts looking at one another as a brother, a sister, a human being, beauty will spread like wildfire ~ Oh Wonder – All We Do
