The Blog written 4/10-13
This is a school project there we was asked to write a text about our selfs. I chose to change the task a little bit and post this on my blog and send my teacher the link. Let’s start.
My name is Amanda. I’m almost 12 years old and my birthday is on the 10th of November. My birthday is only one month and six days away now, i’m not really excited, i haven’t been excited about my birthday for 2 years. You know that happy, expectant, sparkling feeling in your tummy, when you thought it was hard to fall asleep and you did always woke up like 3 times because you were SO excited, and you just pretended to sleep when your parents came into your room and sang “Happy birthday”. I miss that feeling and those expectations.
I live in the pretty small town Borlänge in Sweden, I live here with my mom and dad, my brother and cat. My brothers name is Villiam, he is 2 years older than me and my cat is called Yoda. My mothers and fathers name is Jenny and Niclas. We live in a red house, it’s cozy and home friendly, not too warm or cold in the colours, it’s just perfect and I like it. My room is big. Trough my window I can see a beautiful meadow, at the fall the meadow is filled with mist on the mornings.
My room got a white wall with black flowers, a bed and a bookshelf, I don’t have any books in the shelf, only books i’ve already read. All of my books are on the table next to my bed, because I read a lot.
My grandparents, uncle and cousins and their mom lives in Västerås. My cousins are 3 and 1 years old and they mean everything to me, they always cheer me up and they are like little sisters to me. They always makes me smile. And when i have a bad day, i always think of them and it gets easier to go throught the day.
I’m tall for my age, and always get comments about it. Nobody believes me when I tell them my age. I don’t think it’s fun, people always comment how i look and that makes me feel very insecure about my body and height and i’ve got very bad self-confidence and had so long i can remember. But I am tall, and I can’t do anything to change that. I haven’t chosen to be tall. That is just who I am.
At the weeks I got a long schedule. I’m busy everyday with my three instruments and two orchestras. My friends often asks me how I can handle all my sparetime activites and the school at the same time. I’ve got no idea, but I think that if you’re really love to do something, in my case play music, you can do that everyday in the week. Because that is what you’re burning for and that’s what you want to do.
Like i said before, I read a lot, I’ve read the twilight-serie like 2 times now and the hunger games is my favorite-serie. I’m at the 4th Harry Potter book now and i started to read my grandmothers old english version of Alice in wonderland but haven’t had time to continue.
I love to write. I think that you can explain and express so much in a text. Because who would I be if I didn’t know how to write this? Who would I be if I couldn’t read? I think I would be lost. It wasn’t that hard to write in english, it was like writing in Swedish actually. It was fun and a challenging, I liked it.
