My name is Alina and this feels like the worst thing I've ever written. This is surprisingly hard to write, and I'm finding it hard to explain who I am in a way that you (the reader) will find interesting. I barely know who I am myself. But hey, that's pretty normal when you're a teenager, right ? This is what I do know about myself though.
I know my age, I'm 15 years old and I turn 16 in September. I know I'm from Sweden, though I'm fluent in Russian and English too, and I know a bit Japanese. I know that I love music more than anything, and that if given the chance I'll never stop talking about it. I know that I love Japan and everything about their culture. I know that I'm very creative, and I'm pretty good at drawing too. I draw lots and lots, and you'll probably see loads of drawings from me here (here are some recent drawings !)
But who am I apart from all that ? I've realised I hadn't really asked myself this, so now that I have to write about it I'm finding it extremely hard. I like to believe I'm usually quite the energetic optimist, but the self doubt and slight anxiety is still there. I have, in my opinion, a pretty bad sense of humour, but at least I have friends who understand it and laugh with me. I don't know what I'd do without my friends to be honest, they mean more to me than words can say. If any of you ever read this, I love you <3
I've been thinking about how to write this post for about two days. I know, I know, I'm taking it too seriously. But I really wanted to make it personal and at least somewhat interesting. I don't know if this is the most interesting read, but I feel like I've introduced myself enough to actually seem like an actual person to whoever doesn't know me.
If you've actually read this far, yay ! High five to you ! And thank you for reading :) I hope this all made sense.
