You’ve probably heard of the Latin phrase veni, vidi, vici, or in its English translation: I came, I saw, I conquered. When thinking about a title for my new blog, I knew I wanted something catchy, something with a nice ring. I thought: what about veni, vidi, vici? But.. the conquered part did not really fit. So, I just deleted it. Welcome to my new blog: veni, vidi. I came, I saw… and I blogged about it.
My name is Sanne, 22 years old, and currently finishing my BA in Greek and Latin Languages and Cultures in the Netherlands. Since 2013, I have been a dutch bookblogger and have had my own book blog de pagina omslaan. However, because my reading tastes have changed and I felt a lot of pressure because of my blog, I decided to take a break, which turned out to be more like quitting book blogging altogether. But.. once a blogger, always a blogger, and I want to get back into blogging! I want to go global (sort of), and reach a bigger audience, so I’ll be blogging in English and not in Dutch. Forgive the occasional (or frequent?) grammar mistake, I’m not a native speaker (although Dutchies seem to be pretty good at English as a second language).
A little more about this blog
Enough rambling, what kinds of blogposts will appear on this blog and how often? My current plan is to publish a blog once a week, possibly two times a week from June onwards when *hopefully* I have finished my Bachelor’s degree. The content of this blog will mainly be about my two hobbies: travel and books, and I will talk about my university life as well. Next year, I will continue my Classics education with a Master’s in the UK (I’m holding two offers at the moment, when I have officially decided which one I will pick, I’ll update you!) and I would like to document my time in the UK. What’s more, I just love Classics, and want to tell you guys all about the magical world that is Classics!
