Man sieht sich immer zweimal im Leben Fri, Jul 29, 2016
Literally, one always sees another twice in a lifetime. Our paths will cross again. You never only know a person once. This is one of my favorite German sayings that has multiple meanings. It can be used to promote respect & friendliness - because you never know when you'll see someone again. And it can be used as a more positive goodbye - something along the lines of "don't worry, we'll meet again soon".
Three weeks from today will be my last day at SlideBelts.
I’m very fortunate to have been selected to receive a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship (ETA) Grant to Germany for the next academic year! This means that I will be teaching English to the German equivalent of high schoolers, while attending a class or two at the local university, where I hope to soon pursue a Masters degree. While I am so excited to begin this next leg of my journey, I am also heartbroken to be leaving you all so soon. This is a community of amazing people that I never expected to find, and SlideBelts will forever hold a very special place in my heart because of all of you.
You are all obviously super welcome to swing by Germany at any time in the next year - I will always be down to show off my new digs and impress you with my German.
