I’m Petra and I hate the sound of my name being pronounced in different accents. I’m not even going to try to explain my heritage. Just think of me as a citizen of the world who got named after a long-lost archeological city in Jordan. Though that is as far from the truth as I am from Jordan itself.
You got this far already, thank you!
I may not be the person you turn to for ideas, pretty travel pictures or fitness tips – I wish I would be! But what I definitely am is an over-analysing person trying to make it as good as possible through good and REALLY bad days, handing out advice for free.
And I feel like there are missing real-life issues in this perfect bubble of reality. No hate. Really.
I am the type of person to write everything down on paper before typing it because my attention-span equals that of a three year old.
I am the type of person to overthink everything, try to do it perfectly, stress about how much work goes into “doing it perfectly” and in the end, not doing it at all.
“Done is better than perfect.” – Sheryl Sandberg
The type of person who starts a blog to have a personal space, still thinking about what others may think of the content. Then, of course, questioning whether to screw it or not.
The type of person to talk openly about life-changing events, admitting emotions and failures yet still getting hurt when somebody else does it to me.
The type to go to a park to think, because the great effort to get here pushes me to finally do things, for goodness’ sake!
I really am a rebel just for kicks. I feel like there are so many things I cannot relate to in this world, but instead of feeling left out I try to use these differences to make me stick out in a crowd and let people find me in the endless ocean of the same beliefs. You should try it for yourself, if you haven’t yet. It’s worth it.
It may look like I am really confused, but who isn’t? In reality, I have so much to say that this platform is a much needed diary. So, to wrap it up: if you want a platform where you can see someone else succeed and fail at life in an awfually uneven ratio, stick around – it’s gonna be fun.
