Just a couple of hours left of you, my sweet 2016. While most people would say how fast time has flied away, I must admit that 2016 has been a long year. I've learned a lot from you 2016. I've made some terrible mistakes when it comes to my hair haha. One of my biggest regrets was cutting it #neveragain. I've learned to always trust my guts and that it's okay not to please every single person. That I matter too. You made me reconnect with myself and for that I am grateful. I've lost some 'friends' along the way, but that's fine. Whenever someone walks out of your life, just remember that they're making room for someone else to enter. I live by that. I've met some amazing new friends. You have gone trough all my stressmoments at University. How determined I was at getting my diploma. How I was like, f***K it, and grabbed my bags and went on a early Summervacation while I was still working on my thesis and how proud I was at my final work. On the 31th of August 2016 I recieved
that special e-mail with a congratulations, you're now an Alumni! You have showed me that with hard work, faith in yourself, discipline and determination ANYTHING is possible. 2016 is also a year that I reflect upon with tears in my eyes. A lot of innocent stars have left our world and as I'm writing this post I feel that feeling of powerlessness, pain and sadness all over again. The news of Aleppo really affected me. I wanted to study law ever since I was a little girl. Not to get rich or get some kind of status. My sole reason was and is to help people. That's what had driven me ever since and why I always wanted to achieve the best in school. So here is to 2017. I want walk in 2017 with only positive energy. I'm not a 'new year new me' or a 'new year's resolution plan' kinda girl. I see a new year as a fresh start. I want to stop stressing about getting the highest grades and not making enough time for meself. I'm planning to travel more. As a matter of fact, I'm starting my travel journey next week!
