And Happy New Year, of course. I hope you all had an amazing start of 2017. But let’s be honest, Ed Sheeran already saved it by announcing that he’ll let the world hear some of his music THIS FRIDAY. I am so damn excited, I nearly got a heart attack yesterday.
But seriously, I really hope this year is already going well for all of you guys and if it doesn’t, there’s still plenty of time to turn it all around. So let’s focus on staying positive and happy. Right?
For me, this year or let’s say the beginning of this year really means a lot to me. In particular in connection to this blog. You all know that I love writing and blogging and talking to you and just being on here. And now that I’ve had this blog for nearly a year now and 2017 has come, I felt that it was time for some changes. Actually, this is a pretty big ting for me, but I feel that the time has come and that I am ready to do this.
So, I don’t know if you noticed it, but I always kept this blog here as my own little space on the internet. Partly anonymous too. Which I want to change now. I want to get this blog out there, out in the world. That’s why I created my own Facebook page and Instagram account solely for this blog. It’s my way of connecting some little more and sharing what I love with more people than before. Of course all the links will be right down at the end of this post and you can also get to the pages by clicking on the links right up there.
Actually I was never really a fan of either Facebook or Instagram, but after talking to friend, who told me that I should really get my “talent” out there and some reassurance by my mum, I made the decision to just try it out. I really really really hope you like it.
And the other thing I wanted to share with you guys is some little more information about me. I always felt that it was right to keep my privacy, even on here. But I noticed that it also kinda disconnects me and I don’t want that. So here comes some more information about me:
- yes, my name is Laura
- I’m 20 years old, turning 21 in 3 months (yey, finally legal in America)
- I’m from a small town in Austria
- I’m studying journalism and communication in Vienna
- I speak German, but some weird dialect kind of it, which I totally love
- I still live with my parents at home with my dog and my cat
- I’m really weird and crazy and pretty much in love with life
And that is me with my face:
And this is me a few days ago with the teddy I got from my friend. He’s called Ed. Yes, I love him:
This is literally the first time I ever showed my face on here. Actually, I never noticed that, not before my friend told me, which is crazy. But hey, I did it now. And I’m seriously really excited for your reactions. For real. I hope you all like my decision and what I’m heading to with this blog and that you are as happy about it as me. I love this blog and being on here and I really hope you do too.
Oh, and here are all the links I talked about:
So, there you go. New exciting things are happening and as I said, I hope you’ll stick by me. And maybe this blog will just grow bigger and better. Every single day. If any of you want to know more or just chat, I’m here. And until then, I hope you enjoyed this post and, as always, thanks for reading. x
