Ups, Downs & Coincidences

Aktualisiert: 24. Aug. 2023

My training lasted three years, and as with everything in life, there were ups and downs. After a successful first year, I reached another critical, adolescent phase. I began to skip school again, drank far too much alcohol every weekend, and tried to chase quick money with poker and gambling. However, the most challenging times in life often bring about the most beautiful moments and experiences.

During this turbulent time, I met Angelika. I didn't know it back then, but this encounter would change everything. She not only made me a better person but also helped me realize my full potential and to drop my bad habits. She was simply the missing puzzle piece in my life. Today, I can say with certainty that she is the love of my life and my soulmate. Ultimately, I set myself the goal of making the most out of my final exam certificate in the third and final year of my apprenticeship and finish with a grade point average (GPA) of 1.0. Who knew what I might need such a certificate for in the future?

This is where the »coincidences« began. Because, if something seemingly random happened on my journey, it often turned out to be a key event in retrospect. Keep an eye out for these moments in the text – I've marked them with chevrons (»«).

You'll see how many »coincidences« there were and how often they built upon each other.

It all started with one of my classmates at the time. When I returned to school with my good intentions of wanting to achieve only top performances this year, I naturally told the whole class about it. Everyone knew about it, and I was under more pressure to achieve my goal. This is where my classmate came in, who immediately jumped up and shouted at me: "Pah, you'll never make it!" That was all I needed. After a few minutes of heated discussion, I said: "Okay, want to bet?" The colleague agreed and set 50 euros for our bet. At that time, that was a lot of money for me. Ambitious as I was, I took his hand, and we sealed the bet with a firm handshake...
