Ok this blog post is so overdue, I have been wanting to do something like this for awhile but I am just lazy and the only reason I am posting this is because I am uploading my “Why I love Germany video” on Youtube tomorrow and I am trying to have a little organization for my social media. I feel like time is just passing by…Well flying by and the only thing that is changing is that my waistline is getting wider and my skin is getting drier BUT HERE I AM to talk about one of my favorite topics: GERMANY ❤
I have been in Germany for a small period of my life and I think that sometimes people get the wrong impression about/from me. “Why complain? If you don’t like Germany so much then leave”. I always have to think to myself…If I did not like Germany I would not be here. PLAIN AND SIMPLE. I would not be thinking about becoming a German citizen. I would not be giving so much effort into immersing myself into a culture etc etc.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, I know (believe me I KNOW) but I honestly would like to say that Germany is my favorite place on planet Earth. I don’t want to leave, don’t plan on leaving, will try my hardest to be “ein bissl deutsch” and give everything to stay here for as long as I can.
People ask me “why?” and is it cliche to say…”you have to come here to understand”? I mean I really can not give Germany justice with words, pictures or videos. The love I have for this place is deeper than kasespatzle and Oktoberfest. The reason I love Germany so much has to do with what has happened inside of me. Moving here has made me “think outside of the box”. I mean…. I am totally outside of the box no matter what but living here opened my eyes to so many things and expanded the way I think.
There may be times that I have my moments (we all have them..Jessica Simpson Dukes of Hazard moments “Duh”) but if you would have met me 3+ years ago you would have met a different girl. I love Germany because it has changed me for the better. I may not be where people want me to be in life but I am where I need to be and I am so thankful that Germany has opened their door & heart so long for this crazy American<3
