Finally starting to feel like spring here in Oslo ❤ It makes me soooo happy! Dan and I had the nicest day yesterday. We were both off work and had the whole day to just do whatever we wanted. We started off walking around in the sun, got some food and snacks. Then eventually went to get halloumi burgers to eat at home on our rooftop in the sunshine, with good music and wine.
After that we went in for a bit, then brought the speaker with us while we went walking around going to a few different bars. Cardi B’s new album is out and it made me a bit too excited while we listened to it walking home, so I ended up twisting my ankle because I was just too hyped up, haha. It hurts today…
Now I’m going to get a little bit of work done before going to sleep. My bestfriend has her birthday next week, my mom is coming to visit, I’m speaking about selective mutism, an interview is coming out and I have a shoot – everything very soon so there’s a lot of things going on. Only good ones and I’m so happy ❤
New video is out! This time we did the egg roulette challenge and it’s so funny! Remember to comment, like and subscribe ❤ Excited to see who gets the next shoutout!
Some of you might remember this blog post. Selective Mutism affects about every 1 in 1000 kid. It affected me. The truth is there is not enough knowledge anywhere about this anxiety disorder. There is not enough help for kids struggling and parents struggling. My mom and I was a team and we managed it together, I got through it stronger than ever. Sometimes you will need more help. You should be able to get professional help, it is such a serious disorder.
But where’s the help? Why is it that so many doctors, professionals in mental health – no one knows more about it? Why have teachers not been educated more about such a disorder, when time after time there’s someone right in front of them, in their class, struggling so terribly?
After my blog posts and shares in Facebook groups there have been people reaching out to me. A lot more then I would have thought. I hope my story can be an inspiration and that anyone struggling know that they can contact me wherever and whenever. I’m here. There has been kids, parents, teenagers and adults – it doesn’t matter what age, you can be affected regardless.
But it’s not enough, I know that. I want to work harder so that more people can get educated about this anxiety disorder. That teachers can understand they make it so much worse for someone with SM by trying to make them talk in class or punishing them because they are not speaking. So much worse!
And just using some of my platforms to talk more about this, and share it as well is somewhere to start. I’m motivated – more people needs to understand what Selective Mutism really is.
I just got back from Oslo today and have been sitting in this same spot working and planning all day. Tiiiiired! But this is me right now so why not just share it with you guys. Hope everyone’s good ❤
Today we spent the day in Las Palmas! We left in summer clothes, me in shorts and a crop top and my mom in a dress… Little did we know that the weather could be so different on the very same island. We found some warmer clothes to wear and went around trying to find the center of Las Palmas. It was more difficult then what you would think. But we made it, at least to see parts of it. We did some shopping as well, found a Starbucks (<3) and went into the old town. That’s where all the pictures above where taken actually. It’s something to see when you go here, something different. Especially all those houses on the hill. So many struggling people, but so bright and colorful. Beautiful.
I also think we got food poisoning from the sushi we ate earlier, so now I’m back to hating sushi again. Yay. Note to self: never order takeaway from somewhere they do buffet sushi because if you really think about it you KNOW that the sushi has been out all day long, just laying there on the plate getting worse by the second. Don’t eat it!
Other than that – if you want to see my little vlog from the other day press here! Enjoy!
New challenge video is out on Youtube! Enjoy and let us know what you think ❤
