Goodbye, Blog

Hi, guys.

As some of you may have noticed, I haven’t blogged for an entire month. I just couldn’t get myself to do it, and blogging started to feel like a chore.

That is the absolute last thing, I want it to become, so I sat down and thought about why I started blogging in the first place. I blog because I’m fascinated by the world you can create just by writing about what you love. I love to learn and be creative with everything the internet world has to offer.

Since I started blogging a year ago, I have achieved a lot of things, I’m actually really proud of. I have worked together with some cool companies, I have met bloggers all around the world, who I now consider as my friends, and two days ago Simply Being Young hit 10.000 views. Something that made me very very happy.

Despite the above, I didn’t enjoy blogging. I’ve thought long and hard about it, and I think I’ve figured out why. I can’t identify with Simply Being Young anymore. I started SBY during a time in my life, where I wasn’t happy. If you’ve read a lot of my first posts, you will see they were quite negative and sad.

Today, a year later, I am no longer that person. I still have a long way to go before I can fully and truly be happy with myself and my life, but I’m million of miles away from the person I was a year ago.

So what now? www.simplytessx.com is what now. I want a clean slate. I need a clean slate.

I want to write about the things in life, that brings me joy and excitement. Not all the negative feelings and days, because who wants to remember that? I want to talk about music and social media. I want to share my travels, and my dreams about the future. I want to share how I get on with my lifestyle change. I want to share all the things, I’m about as a person.

I want to share the life I have now. Not the life I used to have.
I really hope you will join me in this new chapter of not only my blogging life, but also my real life.

Thank you so much for reading x

What Even Was May?

May

HOW is it already June? Like seriously, I cannot deal with how fast May has gone. April too for that matter. Now, I think I have some explaining to do. I have been pretty MIA this month in terms of posting here, on Twitter and on Instagram. I wrote a post about it, and then I posted a ton right after. Made no sense, but oh well, you know me. Full of surprises. So in true me style, I hereby give you my life in May in one post. I promise I’m gonna get better at spreading it out. I hope.

Wow now that I think about, May has been full of cool things. First cool thing was meeting the lovely Sofie from It’s Just Sofie in Copenhagen for lunch and a lovely chat. If it wasn’t for blogging, we would never have talked, and that would be a shame. See ya next month, Sofie! 😉

For Mother’s Day, me, my parents and my grandma went out for dinner at a new restaurant in Copenhagen called ‘Flammen’ (The Flame), which had the most insane grill buffet with stuff like kangaroo and crocodile. That was awesome.

5 SECONDS OF SUMMER! Oh my god, I can’t believe I haven’t talked about it before! I bought the tickets for me and Cecilie last year as her birthday present, and it was the best present ever. The guys was so good live, I was really impressed with them. The stage setup was great, the crowd was great, the show was great. It was all great.

In my hometown we have an annual tradition called ‘Ølløb’ which means ‘beer run’. I’m thinking about doing a whole post about it, so stay tuned for all the details, but basically it’s 5000 young people walking from one town to another having a party. I had such a good day with my friends, the weather was amazing (doesn’t happen a lot around here, so the excitement was real) and had a fun night as well. The hangover the next day is debatable though.

We handed in our 100+ pages long exam project two days early, which I was very chuffed with. We’ve been working on it since February and the feeling of finally being done (and free) is indescribable. Now I still have two oral exams to go and that’s it for this semester. I also got my other exam results back, and I passed all of my written exams! *pad self on the shoulder*.

Had a lovely mother-daughter-day in town, did some shopping, ate the most incredible lunch. OH MY GOD I just realized what happened that day too. Haha stream of consciousness all over this post. Me and my mom went to a clairvoyant that night, and hands down that was the most insane thing I’ve ever experienced. Like oh my god. Post will come, I have to share it.


So that’s it, that’s my May! How has your month been?

Lots of love
