Hi, I’m C. Esther (you can call me Esther). I am a passionate person. I’m passionate about writing, passionate about chocolate and passionate about cats. In fact, my passion could almost be described as obsession… but we’ll not call it that for now 😉 I’m a 22 year old California girl who moved to Germany four years ago, and I love to travel, experience things both new and old, and, most importantly, I am as ordinary as all of you who are looking at your screens right now.

I have had a lot of goals throughout my life that I have let slip away because they seemed unrealistic or stupid either to me, or to those around me. But I say NO MORE! I’m going to do what I want, when I want, and there is nothing you can do about it! I’m going to write. Write this blog, filling it with funny cat videos and delicious recipes and inspiring or amusing posts. Write my books, which are a work in progress, but something that gives me joy and excitement.

Just to give you an idea of where I come from, here’s a little background. I grew up in a household with a total of 6 girls (including me). That’s right. My mother, plus me and my 4 sisters. Some people think that growing up with all sisters must be all chick flicks, painted nails and girl talk. Well I’m here to tell you that YOU’RE WRONG. Ever heard of a bitch fight? Well, sisters pretty much invented that. Not to mention all the stealing of each others clothes and jewelry (myself included), trying to cut your own hair and ending up with a bowl-cut (that was me about 5 times), climbing up trees and ropes and giving your Mother heart attacks. I used to joke that since my Mom never got a boy, we had to substitute for the son she never had. These were just a few of the perks of growing up in an all-girl household. All right, you aren’t all wrong. There were tear-filled nights where we all huddled on the couch and watched movies. My younger sister always got especially into the sobbing. All in all I have to say, I appreciate my sisters and my Mom more than anyone on the planet.
