Who am I –The Story of Marie
You might wonder who am I, the girl behind the blog? I am a child of the universe, my atoms (yours as well), descends from stars that exploded a long, long time ago. This is the very big picture of how I came to this earth.
I guess I should also thank my parents –the smaller picture. My mum is a Norwegian and my dad is a Dane. I was born on Zealand in Denmark, in small town south of Copenhagen called Køge. Yes, some of our o’s are strange –ø.
Ø also means island in Danish. I was born on an island, I’ve always lived close to the sea. My grandfather and other members of my family were fishermen. I think that’s why I feel claustrophobic when I’m far away from the ocean. –I wish I were a mermaid.
What are my interests?
My name is Marie Antoinette, but just call me Marie. I am (what many people like to call it) a multiartist. To create is the very core of me, when I’m not creative I feel dead inside. Sounds really emo I know, but it’s true.
Music is my biggest passion, then we have art, and after that, everything else. I have a bachelor in History of Art from the University of Oslo, but are also educated in leadership (and skincare!). The contrast of the business world and the arts are fun to mix together. Everything goes!
Webdesign is another great passion, I’ve made so many websites over the last 10 years. Both personal and for other companies. I’ve also made a free online course on how to learn WordPress with my mate Anniken. <Advertisment over>.
Last, but not least, I really love science (by that I mean quantum physics and astronomy). I know I am eclectic (that is btw one of my favourite words). My two heroes are Dr. Michio Kaku and Dr. Stephen Hawking. I love (but are also so frightended by) the universe.
The Environment and animal care -and stuff
Yes, I am one of those annoying people who care about the environment and thinks I can make a difference. Please don’t take that dream away from me.
If you take away the life-illusion from an average man, you take away his happiness as well. -Henrik Ibsen
Also I am one of those “vegans” who think they are better than everybody else. I really don’t, if you eat meat, eggs and drink milk, I’m fine with it. You’ll die a slow and terrible death, but it’s okay. Just kidding! It’s a personal choice for me, and I feel great with being a vegan.
But if we’re gonna make “a buzz” out of that vegan thing, please blame my parents. Those 80s hippie-loving, organic growing people made me love vegetables!
What I am a bit more picky about is that we don’t support brands that are testing on animals. It’s really not nice! At all! Me and my Scottish boyfriend have four bunnies. So please don’t hurt us! Follow our instagram here.
In Scandinavian Soldrøm can be translated to “dreams of Sun”. I want this little, green blog to “bubble over with happiness” as we say in Norway. My logo for Soldrøm is the sunflower, it constantly turns towards the sunlight, always reaching, growing and standing tall.
I want to inspire others to be more outside in nature, see more of the cultural treasures in their area, and go back to the more natural way of living. Also much DIY on the blog.
I’ve had so many previous blogs it’s embarassing, but Soldrøm was created in June 2014. The rest is history. w
