Yes, I’m doing it. Not sure how this is going to turn out, but I will never know if I don’t try. I’m going to blog in English from now on, while being German/Russian. So please… don’t be dick if my English is not as perfect as yours, I really am trying hard. Believe me.
Why I am doing this is simple to answer. I want to reach way more people. And I kind of want to challenge myself. And I actually do love the English language way more than German. It is a softer and in some way lovelier sound in my opinion. So bare with me while I’m trying to do this. I’m still going to post a few things in German like book reviews on German books and Authors or German podcasts I am loving at the moment, while book reviews on English books will of course be in English. Maybe some shorter blog posts will be in German when I just want to quickly get some things of my chest and mind. Even for me this is kind of a surprise how it is going to turn out, because first of all: this is my first blog and my first attempt to write English since I am out of school, which is now six and a half years ago (crazy right, time flies…). And second of all, who knows if this is something anybody will enjoy reading or sharing. Who knows if I will get the reach I want with this blog or my linked Instagram. Who knows how long I will blog. As you see, nobody knows anything for sure. At least in this context.
Right now I am working on some kind of schedule for this blog, so please be patient for a bit. I am still figuring out what to post, which topics I want to cover. Until now I was really wishy-washy regarding the subjects of the posts. It is like everything from relationships, to my dog, to eating vegan or just my random rambles (a term I just had to steal from Kathleen Lights, one of my favorite youtubers #sorrynotsorry) on different topics. I would really like to decide on like 2 or 3 topics with this blog while I can still throw some random stuff in on my Instagram to keep in clean and simple here. My problem is, like with everything else in life, deciding. Since I want to get back on track with my veganism that is one topic for sure that I will cover in the future. I think the category fashion will be on my Instagram only, whereas I am not exactly sure if will cover that topic, since I am not a fashionista at all. Plus, I am way too broke to shop. I’m always looking for the next SALE – can I get an AMEN?! Who doesn’t love a good sale, be honest, nobody can walk by Zara when the big red signs are out. But other than that I have actually no clue what I’m doing here. So while I am figuring that out, you can of course leave me a comment if you do have an idea of what you would like to read or what you want to know about me, my life, or whatever else. I am always super thankful for suggestions and tips.
Other than that I am not sure about anything that’s about to happen so lets just lean back and wait what awaits us here. But I am thrilled that I finally decided to do this, because I have been thinking about it since I started this blog and that is actually the reason I named it in English instead of a German title. It seems that I low key knew it was coming but was kind of afraid to take the step. The reason could be that I in general am not too hyped about committing to something and really sticking to that. And that is because of me being afraid of failing at something especially in front of others. And me being inconsequent with myself and what I want to reach. And that is because… well… my head is twisted, my thoughts are racing, I have anxiety a lot and feel like everything is kind of out of my hands. Wow, that was a deep way of ending this post, just pouring all my insecurities out. But that is seriously how my mind works and it drives me crazy. Just so you know. But I’m living and trying to work on all of that so I can become a “normal” human being. Watch my journey!
So my loves, with that being said…
Peace out xo
