2017 – you’ve been good.

2017

Can you believe that we are already half way through January? Somehow I haven’t fully realized yet that we are actually in 2018 and the last months of the past year went by in what felt like a blink of an eye. It was super quiet here in the recent weeks. Ok fair enough, it has been quiet here actually for months. For various reasons which I don’t want to bore you with (read: I was busy enjoying life & working)! Since I’m not really one to make ground breaking New Year‘s Resolution each year and my list mainly comprises the same items like the ones of most likely 90% of the western population, I thought the beginning of the new year is the perfect excuse to tell you about how my life in 2017 has looked like instead.
As you know, 2016 was all about finishing Uni before I packed my bag pack and left on an amazing trip around the world. I’ve collected so many amazing memories and experiences, that I still smile and feel an instant relief of happiness inside me when I think about my trip. I came back and started my first proper full-time job at the end of the year. So, what was 2017 all about? If I were to put one word next to it, it would be growth. I feel like I have grown in so many ways during the last 12 months, which makes me super happy and pretty proud at myself. Let’s split this post in three main categories: London, Life, Work.

2017 – stay determined.

new year's resolution, goals, 2017

A little bit over a week into the new year, there have been tons of blogposts online about new year’s resolution, about how to actually achieve them and why not to have them. I was thinking about sharing my resolutions with you guys as well. Only to realize that 2016 has probably been the best, most existing and most rewarding years of my life making any usual resolution seem out of place. However, I’ve read so many inspiring posts about setting goals instead of restrictive or unreasonable resolutions (here or here) which got me thinking that setting goals are not such a bad idea after all. So, here are my goals for 2017…  read more

#lookingforlove: why are you single?

Oder auch gibt es für jeden Topf wirklich einen Deckel? In den vergangenen Monaten habe ich viele neue Menschen getroffen und kennengelernt. Auf meiner Reise um die Welt, in meiner alten neuen Heimat London und natürlich auch auf der Arbeit. Ich liebe es neue Menschen kennenzulernen, denn ich finde es interessant sich auf neues einzulassen, zu sehen wie sich eine Persönlichkeit immer mehr und mehr zeigt, sich vor einem entfaltet. Zugegeben nicht mit jedem, dem ich begegne bin sofort auf einer Wellenlängen und manchmal sind die ersten Gespräche auch eher unfassbar langweilig, sodass es dann auch nur bei ein wenig Smalltalk bleibt. Doch manchmal trifft man auf Menschen, die mag man auf Anhieb, man versteht sich und die Chemie stimmt einfach. Und genau das sind die Gespräche, die mir Spaß machen und die  mich auf irgendeine Art und Weise – teils unbewusst, teils unverhofft und manchmal unumgänglich – prägen. Bereits in diesem #lookingforlove Beitrag habe ich euch verraten, worum es in meiner Kolumne gehen soll: das eigene, wahre Glück zu finden.
