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

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.

PERSONAL | Bachelor of Laws (LL.B) Graduation

PERSONAL | Bachelor of Laws (LL.B) Graduation

I’m proud. To be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever been so proud of myself as I am right now. I can certainly say this is the proudest achievement of my life: receiving my Bachelor of Laws (LL.B) degree. 3 years ago, I moved from a small town near Amsterdam to Groningen to study law at the University of Groningen. I was an insecure girl, scared of leaving everything behind and starting in a city far away from home and my friends.

PERSONAL | How I Stay Motivated

PERSONAL | How I Stay Motivated

One of the most asked questions I get is how I stay motivated. Although I’ve talked about motivation before, I really felt like I needed to touch down on this topic once more. Most of you know that I’m a full time law student (just started my second half of the first semester of my Research Master in Law), a philosophy student, running my own two businesses, while maintaining a social life and a healthy lifestyle. So how do I do it? What’s my secret to stay motivated? Well guys, I’m going to give you a very personal and non-typical explanation for how I stay motivated, even through hard times.

PERSONAL | It’s My Birthday!

PERSONAL | It’s My Birthday!

Good morning guys! Today is a special day for me (even though it’s Monday, ugh), because it’s my 22nd birthday! I can’t believe I’ve been living my life on this earth for 22 years now… I don’t know about you, but for me, 22 seems like such an old ‘number’… At 22, you need to have your goals set and your priorities straight (or at least, that’s what I thought when I was a teen lol). Not saying that I don’t have a particular vision of how I would like to end up with my life, but I do have the feeling that I’m not even close to reaching it anytime soon. But maybe that’s just my ambition talking, haha.

PARIS DIARIES | Last Day in Paris

PARIS DIARIES | Last Day in Paris

Good morning guys, and this time it’s not from our Airbnb in Paris. No, at the moment I’m laying in my old room at my mom’s place looking back at 3 amazing days in Paris. I didn’t like this city before this trip, but now I definitely made some good memories here to change that opinion. 3 days went by so fast!
