I thought that you might find it fun and interesting to see the progress i go through when i make an bigger illustration, i really enjoy these kind of posts from other artists 🙂 I have made a timelapse video of me drawing before, and i think i want to do a more of those kind of videos, but this i also a quite nice way to show it that isn’t that demanding, i can just take pictures with my phone as i go along.. I hope you like my little lady, she was really fun to draw.
Why am I a feminist.
Feminism means equal rights, it means that no matter what sex, colour, background or life you have, you should be treated just as fair as anybody else.
Feminism can mean a lot of things for a lot of people, and equality for everybody is a very big change to take on when we live in a world that is obsessed with sex.
I am very privileged, I am white, I am conventionally pretty, I live in a country that would provide for me if needed.
So my immediate attention when it comes to feminism, does not really concentrate on racism, or people with disability or the many other important topics. I will forever stand up for other peoples rights, but I am neither educated, or a part of a culture where I feel like I can write knowledgably about those topics… yet at least.
What I can do is try to make a difference in the place I am now.
Feminism for me personally means:
Feminism means not being afraid that people will judge me, for something as simple as not wearing an uncomfortable item of clothing, seeing it as sexual, or provocative.
It means that whenever I do something stereotypically girly or manly it is not seen as right or wrong, it is just seen as I thing I do.
It means that my voice should be heard, just as much as any other voice, and respected just as much as anyone else.
Mostly for me it means that what matters, is not what I am, but what I do.
My brain is filled with negative thoughts at the moment, I honestly feel like crap, I have not been to college yesterday or today, even though I have just started and I am really enjoying the classes.
I am on antidepressants, and mostly I feel just fine, but sometimes I just get kinda triggered, which sucks, and I have to really put in an effort to get out of the slump.
When I feel like this I just cannot handle other people, it makes me so so anxious being around new people, people I don’t know, and especially in a setting like school.
Logically I know it is stupid not to attend the class and I would properly feel much better if I did, because when I don’t go I feel so guilty, and even more like shit, ( kind of an evil cycle going on here ).
Luckily I have the day of tomorrow, so I have an early weekend, and I intend on filling it with good vibes, creativity and no negativity.
So hopefully I am in a better place on Monday, for my next week of lessons.
One of the things that really calms me down is podcasts!
I will make a cup of tea, get some lunch and listen to “hello from the magic tavern” by Arnie Niekamp, which is my newest podcast obsession, it is magical, silly and super funny. I really recommend it if you just want to listen to something carefree and fun.
If anybody has any tips on how they calm down, and get in a better “mood” I would love to hear it
Hopefully i will get a bit less awkward when making videos…
English or Danish ?
As I am sitting here building up my webpage and stuff, i feel very conflicted, should this page be in English or Danish ? I feel like it would be a lot more relatable for my Danish peeps if I just wrote in Danish, but that also excludes a lot of people, if anybody not from Denmark wants to take a gander at my site…
but yeah as you can see, I have, for the moment decided to write in English, as most people in Denmark are fluent in it anyway, I might do some random bits and pieces in Danish when I feel like it. But for now, the language is English
I have always been quite interested in blogging, in making something for your self and showing what you can do, I think my attraction comes from me being quite creative, I take weird pictures, I draw, and I like fashion. I have tried a couple of times to start up a blog and get it running, and I have had one on going for quite a few years, but I never really posted stuff on it, I preferred to just very occasionally write something I knew wouldn’t be to serious or something a lot of people would see, so I never really saw myself as a “Blogger” and I was quite happy with that.
I am so fascinated with the blogging industry as whole, but I have always been scared to actually be a “blogger” in Denmark blogging and bloggers have such a bad reputation. You are an attention hore and weird if you are blogger. I think all of these negative associations with bloggers come from two places
1. In Denmark we are quite big on the “jantelov” this is a term that means “you are not better than anyone else, and don’t start believing you are special” ore something like that? And you kinda have to think you are just a little bit special to make a whole website dedicated to stuff you do, write, make , like …
2. A few years ago there was a crazy blogger faze, where everyone and their girlfriend had a blog, everyone wore black outfits and acne jeans, and made pretty much the same boing ass content. This created a stereotype, and stereotypes are always a blast to poke fun at. There where even quite a few girls at my school that felt bullied because people went around poking fun of them.
But yeah, screw the “jantelov” and I hope that my content will be at least I tiny bit original.
