I first created this blog nearly two years ago when I was first preparing to move to Germany, and at that time, I was more than happy to be known as “the American.” Now that I have been living, working, and studying in Germany for over a year, however, I have realized that I do not want to be branded with this label by all of my friends, classmates, and coworkers. And as someone that studies digital media and works in marketing, my blog does tend to come up in conversations every once in a while.
Instead, I thought I would focus on the mash of cultures and languages that is now my life. Although I am still very much American, my life is also heavily influenced by Germany. So, I thought that “Welcome to Germerica” would be the perfect name for my little corner of the internet where I write about what is like to do things like study in Germany, date a German, and apply for German visas as an American.
