New Beginnings and A Special Goodbye to 2017

This is as good a time as any to start a blog.

For those of you reading, Hallo! My name is Damaris, I am 22 years old, and I am a fourth-year student at University. Some important things to know about me are: I have crippling anxiety, I speak (semi-fluent) German, and I have a passion for dance and healthy living. These are the main reasons I have decided to start this blog. To manifest my love for German, veganism, exercise, and ballet. Nonetheless, I have also started this blog because I want to help people. When I first started out in University, I had absolutely no idea which way was up, how to go about my courses or even the real value of education. As a result of this, my already present anxiety worsened and I developed a negative perception of school. I struggled with this anxiety for the better portion of my entire four-year degree. Needless to say, I do not want this to happen to anyone else.

Its finally the end of another year and I must say, I am actually indecisive about this year ending. On one hand, I this marks the end of yet another semester. Therefore, I am one semester closer to graduating! On the other hand, this year was actually pretty awesome.

Regardless, every new year is always the start of a new journey. With that being said, this is the start of my newest project: A Manifesto for Business students, a guide for all language learners of German, a reference that always emphasizes health, and lastly a love letter to life.
