    "Myself" here is an intensive pronoun, which is related to the reflexive pronoun. A given word can typically be either depending on the surrounding sentence, but the intensive pronoun is
    1) non-critical. It can be removed without altering the basic meaning
    2) providing emphasis to the subject, in this case I.
