It’s been a very strange year in many ways, but what’s most important is that I’ve learnt
so many things about myself. How important it is to believe, love and take care of yourself.
But also about being brave, stepping outside of my comfort zone and live in this very moment.
It hasn’t been my favorite year, and I don’t think I’ve really had a favorite year quite yet, but I’m
very thankful for 2014. It has helped me realize what is important and what is not, who are my
real friends and who are not, and what I really want to do with my life, at least for now.
I thought it would be really fun to say goodbye to this year with a list, so let’s here we go!
Have you done anything in 2014 that you’ve never done before?
I’ve been graduating school, attended a real prom, acted in a musical, toured with my music group
for school and had a blast, won a music scholarship, told a boy I liked him face to face, interviewed
people I had never met before and started studying online. A lot of interesting and amazing things.
What countries have you visited?
I haven’t visited that many places this year because as we all know traveling costs
a lot of money. But I did travel to Copenhagen before graduation and I’ve also been in
another part of Sweden for the first time which that was very interesting.
What has been your biggest accomplishments this year?
I think my biggest accomplishments this year is the fact that I’ve stepped outside of my
comfort zone more, I’m braver now than I used to be. Together with that I’ve put more music
online, and gotten even more support and respons for it. It’s amazing and makes me want to
continue doing what I absolutely love.
Which songs will always remind you of 2014?
This is hard, but I think any The Fleetwood’s and Vance Joy song will remind me of this year.
What is the best thing that happened to you in 2014?
Probably winning the music award/scholarship. It was really an honor.
Graduating school was kind of amazing as well!
Have you been happier or sadder than in previous years?
I think it’s been a mix of both. I’ve been really happy at times but I’ve felt really lost and down
as well. I think that it’s good to have some sort of balance. A little bit of sadness makes you
appreciate those happy moments a lot more. Over all I think I’ve been happier than last
year though, but there has been times that have been incredibly hard.
Were you in love this year?
Yes, but unfortunately it was only one sided.
Favorite tv-series of this year?
I haven’t really seen an actual new series from this year, so I’d say Downton Abbey.
Best book you read this year?
Ohh, this is a hard question. I can’t choose one because I’ve enjoyed so many, but I’d say
”A Little Something Different” by Sandy Hall, ”I Am the Messenger” by Markus Zusak,
”Hollow City” by Ransom Riggs and ”Beauty: A retelling story of Beauty & The Beast” by
Best film of the year?
The Grand Budapest Hotel. Enough said!
Top musical discovery?
That would be Vance Joy and Sleeping At Last. Two phenomenal and unique
artists that hit me right in the feels. I’d describe their music as a warm and safe
hug I never want to let go of.
How would you describe your style this year?
Probably that it has become even more girly and colorful. I don’t really like
dressing in just black anymore, I need color.
Did you keep some of your New Year’s resolutions?
Yes, I did. I’ve been more positive, I’ve been writing more, I’ve definitely read more books,
I’ve been stepping outside of my comfort bubble and I’ve really started to believe in myself.
What made you feel good?
Getting back to illustrating and reading books. Something that I’ve probably needed for my
previous years but never got around to. I’m so happy it is such a big part of my life now though!
Who did you miss?
My big sister, but also my dad and my grandmother.
Is there anything you miss in 2014 that you would like to have in 2015?
More adventures, meeting new people and performing more than I did. I want to just get out
and see the world more.
Greatest wish for 2015?
To be healthy and happy, and for my family to be happy and healthy as well.
I wish to get even better at self-love and pretty much leave my comfort zone. Not completely,
but almost. I also have this tiny weeny hope and wish that 2015 will be the year where I feel more
happy and joyful rather than lost and empty.
I’m ending this list by saying that I wish you all a happy new year. Let’s make it a great one!
