Introduction to 21stcenturyblog
Note: Everything you see on this website is still in progress and might change.
So who am I? My name is Eerik Hannus and I used to live (will explain in a minute) in Estonia, Pärnu. I am 18 years old and I graduated high school 3 months ago. I am a young activist. I have managed several different youth projects, started a successful charity event and lead a local NPO (a nonprofit organization). I have received recognition for a wide variety of things and got selected as the young activist of the year in Pärnu 2018.
I believe I have an interesting lifestyle and I chose to share it on an online blog. I have never done a blog before, so you get to experient my starting failures and successes. I hope you enjoy them.
Why did I start now? Although I did several interesting things before, my life has never been so fast-paced and extreme as right now. So what am I doing? The answer is – I am serving in the military.
How can an 18-year-old serve in the military? Well, in Estonia, the military is mandatory and that means that every year thousands of men between 18-27 go to military camps and get their 8 or 11- month training. I am serving for 11 months. I have already served 2 months so I have 9 months to go.
Who is this blog for? I truly believe this blog can be for everybody! At least till June 2019, I will be blogging about my daily life in the military and everyone who is interested in that kind of lifestyle or just wants to hear some interesting and funny stories can keep reading.
I believe I have an incredible story to share with you and the story begins right in the next blog post. It will be called Episode 1 because to tell my story I have to start from the beginning.
“I will be blogging about my daily life in the military. Everyone who is interested in that kind of lifestyle or just wants to hear some interesting and funny stories can keep reading!“
These episodes will be about my daily life and the highlights of it. Some posts will talk about doing training in the forest and facng new challenges, some will be about me and my co-fighters laughing our asses off. This blog surely offers something for a huge variety of people and I am sure that each and every one of you will get your piece of the cake.
The first episode will be published later in this September. Depending on how much free time I have I will be updating this blog every week or month.
A wise fellow (Simon Sinek) once said that the hardest part is starting. Once you get that out of the way, you´ll find the rest of the journey much easier. Well, seems like I didn´t get stuck at the hardest part, why should I stop now?
I want to thank you for joining my journey.
See you in the Episode 1!
