Three months ago I started this blog, unsure what to expect. Most of the blogs I see around are about beauty or fashion, but personally, I’m not very interested in that. I like seeing other people’s cute looks, but I would never be able to blog about it myself. I don’t even wear make-up! It made me scared that I would stand out too much, or that people wouldn’t be interested in my content.
But somehow I ended up with way more readers than I expected. I’m still trying to find my way in the blogging world, but I’m happy with where I’m heading. And to celebrate this, I decided to make a list of my favourite posts of the past three months.
How I experience anxiety
I wrote this blog post because I wanted the world to know what it feels like to live with anxiety. I often get comments such as “just stop worrying” or “you know nothing bad will happen, so stop feeling scared.” They irritate me a lot because you can’t just turn down anxiety. If it were as easy as stopping to worry, I wouldn’t have anxiety.

5 things I love about working in tech
I love my job a lot, but I had a hard time getting back into it after taking a three week break (summer vacation!). Getting up early, going to bed early, working for 8 hours straight, interacting with clients, etc. It was so much at once! I wanted to bring some positive energy into my day, so I wrote a list of reasons why I love my job.

My story of living and dealing with asthma
I’ve had asthma ever since I was a kid; it has always been a part of me. Most of the people close to me know my story, so it felt natural to write a blog post about it as well. I didn’t just want to get my story out there but also provide some support and information to others with asthma. I’m planning on writing more blog posts about the disease in the future as well. So if you have anything related to asthma that you want me to write about, feel free to send me an email.

7 steps towards better sleep
It’s not as personal as the three other posts, but it still deserves a spot among my favourites. I’ve been looking for ways to improve my sleep for a while now, and made a list of the things that help me the most. I should write a follow-up post to this later in the year, as I’ve discovered some new methods since this post was published.
