Why? This is both the most basic and the most essential question we tend to ask – ourselves as well as others. And finding a satisfactory answer isn’t always a piece of cake. And why am I talking about such a philosophical thing right now and right here? Well, because this blog is a result of such a “why”. Only last week I was asking myself, why I let my initial blog slide and stopped writing, even though it made me quite happy. The answer was half true and half a lame excuse. I underestimated my workload for university and instead of figuring out a timetable that allowed me to study and write, I caved in and sidelined my blog. Pathetic, right?
Since this wasn’t exactly a satisfactory answer, I decided to push myself and take up blogging again. Additionally, I wanted to go at it in a more structured and organised way. Up until now I published German and English posts on the same blog – even though there definitely were more German ones. I don’t think I need to explain that this wasn’t ideal and sometimes might have kept people from following my blog. While musing about this and trying to figure out a better way, I had the idea of creating a new blog for my English content. And I asked myself an incredibly important question: “Why not?”
Guess what – I couldn’t come up with any credible excuses. Creating a second blog, aimed at English speaking readers, native and non-native, made sense in every way. I love writing in English, I need the practice and it is an amazimg opportunity to practice what I’ve been thought at university. So here we are. Welcome to my blog! I hope you are as excited as I am and willing to come with me on this journey. I can’t really tell you what to expect because I don’t quite know myself. I can only promise you that I will do my very best. I’ll probably write about books, food and education (I’m in the teacher’s training program and might need to let off steam at some point) – but I might also tackle lifestyle and current affairs. Who knows. I’ll write about things that inspire me, that fulfill me, that outrage me. Expect emotions and passion, because those two I also expect from myself.
A last few words about the blogs title: since “serendipity” was taken, I had to come up with something else. And “serendipitous to a fault” is undoubtedly something I would love to be and adore to help others achieve.
I am looking forward to this journey and would love to take you along for a ride – lots of love
