Hi, my name is Lisa. It's so good to have you here! I am 26 years old, currently living in Germany but as I've been travelling for quite a while, I have a hard time feeling at home in one place.
After a rather long period of finding out what I want to do with my life eventually, I am now studying special needs education and couldn't be any happier with my choice. I really do not want to go into teaching later on though, I'd much rather work on promoting and bringing along inclusivity and participation. It's something I strongly believe in.
As for myself I am more of a dog person who enjoys to cuddle with a really fluffy cat once in a while. I love dessert but won't say no to a delicious main dish. I read the book after watching a movie and will watch every movie that's based on a book I've read.
I'm a best-of-both-worlds kinda girl.
I've been blogging in one way or another for a very long time. I remember my livejournal days and how much it has helped me through my school time. I had a private blog for when I was travelling India, to stay connected to my family & friends at home. In 2013 I was feeling down, I was a waitress and also worked as a fitness instructor but between one job and the other, I had totally lost my bubbly, happy spirit, all I could think about was how big of a failure I was.
Then I decided to start this blog. To remind myself of all the beautiful things that are all around me, all the things I can make and do. It was also the first time I picked up my camera in about a year and the moment I started blogging, I felt better.
Much has happened since then, I am in a far better place now, but The Appleberry will always be my little shelter to help me focus on the bright side of everything.
