Perciò questo è il mio ultimo post bilingue, a partire dal prossimo saranno tutti solo ed esclusivamente in inglese! Se tutto va come spero, grazie a questa decisione sarò in grado di postare molto più di frequente e con costanza ♥ See you soon!
I realized how easier it would be if I went back to the one-language-only when I was writing those pretty long posts. I noticed how quickly I wrote, no stress, quite relaxed - even thought I was writing a really long and articulate post. The thing that has been holding me back for all this time was an Hamletic doubt: "should I choose Italian or English?"
My only option, apart from this, was to slow down and post less - but I already have a poor schedule, honestly, and I actually aim to post more frequently!
This is why, after a lot of thinking, the "lest go back to one language only" option won - and so did the English option. Hardest choice ever, must say.
I know, switching from my native language and bilingualism to another language might seem weird and nonfunctional, but in the end it's the option that hopefully will works best for me: after more than one year of bilingualism I didn't feel like giving up on English. I love this language, I love speaking, reading, writing and listening to it - plus, it's understood pretty much worldwide (ish).
I've been writing in English on my Instagram for a couple of years now and so far it worked just fine (I know it's a very different platform, but bear with me) and thus I feel comfortable with switching language in here.
Of course I'm quite sad of quitting writing in my native language - as I said, it was an hard decision to take. If I had more spare time I'd definitely keep on writing in both languages - but to do so I'd need 36-hours days, at least. And still, that would not resolve the difficulties in terms of longer posts, harder to be read.
So, starting from the next post, I'll write only in English. Hopefully this will allow me to be way more productive and consistent! Wish me luck and stay tuned, I'll talk to you all very soon!
