Bloganuary: I’m no tree, I am an ent

Day 30. If I was a tree, I wouldn’t be one. I would be an Ent. The one in Lord of the rings. Don’t ask me why. They are cool, that’s all. But if I was a tree, it would the one below. I don’t know what kind it is, but it has branches twisting here and there. I’m complicated, and I have different qualities. The photo is taken in front of the clubhouse of a golf course. It’s an ancient tree, but still standing.

My last blog post ever

In 2021, that is. You didn’t expect that twist, did you? 😁 The year has gone fast once again. I only had two achievements this year. The first was the most important thing: the driving license. The second was the course in UI/UX design course. It has been a quiet year for me. I haven’t blogged that much either. I also got two corona vaccines.

Next year it’s gonna be a better year. I’m gonna attend two concerts. Duran Duran on my birthday on June 2, and then the Toto concert in August. I really hope they won’t be postponed. I’m looking forward to them.

The year is coming to an end, so I say goodbye to 2021. I leave you with photos of my Christmas trip to Stockholm, Sweden.

When we (dad and I) got back home, there was even more snow. We had a white Christmas ❤️

An an”noun”cement

Listen everybody. I have an announcement to make.

It has come to my attention that I can no longer keep up with this charade. I must confess something I should have done about a year ago. This might shock some of you. So far I’ve been denying it for myself but I have to tell someone. I’ve thought about this long and hard. I haven’t lost sleep over it though. I know deep inside I have accepted the way things are. Sometimes I wish it would just go away but that thought hasn’t entered my mind that often. One day I might regret I told anybody. Right now I even regret mentioning it to you. I’ll understand if people will stop following my blog after they’re read this. That’s something I can’t control.

What I can control is my own feelings. It doesn’t matter what others think. This is my life after all. I’m going my own way and no one can tell me otherwise. I made a choice and it’s gonna stick. If some think I’m being silly, you might be right. I should know how life is by now but this thing I’m about to tell you is really important. Here it goes.

I hate grammar and always have. This challenge is not very pleasant one. I have no idea how many nouns there is in this post. In school when the teacher told us to search for grammar terms in a text, I was totally lost. That’s why I always failed grammar tests. I have never learned a language by using grammar terms. I want to know how words are put together and that’s it. I don’t need to know which term is which. I don’t know the difference between adjective or adverb. Even if I look it up. The terms just confuses my writing. Just the words “grammar terms” makes me uncomfortable. I just want to write without thinking about the term names.
