Q&A | My Future Plans After Law School, Moving To NYC & Youtube?

Good morning and happy Monday guys! I hope you’re all doing well – personally I’m having a bit of an awful period at the moment: it’s exam time… I’m in the middle of preparing for my exams and I have my first one, International & European Criminal Law on Wednesday. After that I have two exams for Philosophy and then I’m heading to Paris for 5 days, woohoo! You can say I’m very busy at the moment, hence the lacking of blogging and making videos recently. Luckily I did find the time to film a Q&A video for you, where I’m answering your questions about my future plans after law school, moving to NYC and my Youtube career. Hope you enjoy!

HOTSPOT | Feel Good Groningen

Today I’m going to talk about on of my favorite and most visited hotspots in Groningen. It’s called Feel Good, a cute cafĂ© that serves healthy food and juices. It’s located right in the city centre and you can often find me there grabbing a bite with some friends or getting a smoothie to go. I love eating out the door, but I don’t want to fill my body with bad food. That’s why I love eating at Feel Good Groningen so much: all their recipes are delicious and healthy!

How To Instantly Make Your Interior Look Luxe

One of the most frequent asked questions I get is about my loft. A lot of you wonder how I can keep it looking so luxe, while still being only a student. Well guys, I’m going to share a little secret with you. If you want to make your interior look luxe in an instant, get some pretty flowers. I guarantee you, this stuff works. I always make sure I have some greens in my room, but fresh flower bouquets are my favorite. There’s just something so special about a vase filled with pretty roses and lilies! And no ladies, you don’t need a man to buy you flowers, there’s nothing wrong with treating yourself with some. ;)

PERSONAL | My Life Lessons of 2016.

2016. Only 4 numbers that symbolize every second, every emotion and every memory I feel and have felt this past year. Only 4 numbers, yet so difficult to grasp its core. Only 4 numbers, yet they cause an infinite amount of thoughts. One of the main thoughts I have when looking back is how much I’ve like realized stuff about myself, my life and my choices. I guess Kylie was right in the end after all. Last year, I wanted to substract the pure essence of I. Instead of focusing on the effects, I wanted to understand the cause of my deeds. I discovered so many layers of myself I didn’t even know I had. And I did all that to be able to know who I am, what I needed to do and how I could avoid making the same, painful mistakes I’ve made in the past. Instead of trying to understand others, I realized I didn’t even understand myself. And how can one help another if one doesn’t know how to help him or herself first? So that’s what I did: 2016 was a year of self-realization, self-reflexion and self-recognizing. Who am I? Why do I do this? How come I feel the same emotions over and over again, only in different situations? Those questions guided me to the place I am right now. The answers I was searching for were not to be found in others or in circumstances, but only in my own mind. I’ve realized that life isn’t a vicious circle like I thought before – it’s too random for that. However, in the end, everything in life can be reduced to thesis, antithesis and synthesis. Life is constantly opposing, unifying and becoming something else. And you can’t have any control over it. The only control you have is over your own choices.

The Goals I Did And Didn’t Achieve in 2016 + My New Personal Goals For 2017

It’s that time of the year again. New year, new me? Hope I didn’t make your inner hipster cringe. However, I feel like new year’s resolutions aren’t all that bad. I feel like it’s actually very healthy and important to set some goals for yourself at the beginning of the year. So I want to talk about not only my personal goals for 2017, but also about the goals I did and especially didn’t achieve in 2016. It’s important to acknowledge what you still want to achieve (what most people do), what you’ve already achieved, and, maybe most importantly, what you didn’t achieve. In my opinion, these things are inevitable. I personally feel like people change constantly. There’s only one constant in life; and that’s that nothing is constant. Looking back at your life and see how much you’ve changed and have grown as a person is essential for setting new goals you want to achieve. So that’s what I’m going to do today: exactly 365 days later I’m going to give you a recap of my failures, success and dreams this last year.
