Dear Diary… This was the last day of my old life. A life as an ambitious law student in Washington DC at the George Washington University Law School. A life filled with sleepless caffeinated study nights in the law library, long calls with my girls about how much we wanted to cry over our papers, and friendships I made for a lifetime. It’s time to say goodbye. This is my last day of law school; and the first day of my new life. Today, is the first day of a new beginning.View Post
STUDY & CAREER
Everything law (school), philosophy, university & career related.
Being a full-time law student, running my own business, having some sort of a social life, and taking care of my mental and physical health can be quite challenging.

Ever since I’ve started studying at the George Washington University Law School and finished my first semester, my study routine for Law School/University exams has definitely changed. Not only is it quite different to study in a new country with a new legal system in general, the American system in particular also varies a lot from the Dutch study system I am used to. Although I would say that the level of difficulty of the courses is the same, American Law Schools expect way more preparation, interaction, and discussion from you during their lectures based on the Socratic method, and you also have to juggle more law courses than in the Dutch system. So how do I do it?View Post
Moving abroad is no joke. There are a lot of preparations you need to do before you are actually ready to start your journey in another country. Having an accomodation to stay, fixing your passport or visa and getting your courses approved by the board – these are just a couple of things you need to take care when you want to study abroad. Another thing that is quite the struggle is how to pack your suitcase for studying abroad. There is a lot of information to be found when it comes to packing your suitcase for a short trip or a Summer holiday, but when it comes to packing your suitcase for a semester or year abroad I could not find a lot of useful tips. In this blogpost + video I will share all my tips for packing your suitcase when you are going on an Erasmus+ exchange. I also created a Study Abroad Packing List printable you can download for free!View Post
