It is 07:36 am on the 2nd of January 2018, and I am currently writing this on the train on my way to Maastricht. I’ve been spending my first day of the year with my parents at home, not doing anything but chill and relax like probably almost every single person who celebrated New Years. I’ve been thinking about all the great things I have to look forward to. 2018 will be a year with a lot of changes for me. In January I’ll need to finish my thesis, so I’m gonna have to start the year working very hard. I’ll start my internship in February which I am so excited for. In the last year I often fellt like I wasn’t going anywhere, as if I was kind of stuck in one place. Knowing that I am going to learn a lot and work hard at this internship, I cannot be anything else but happy and I am looking forward to it. This I will do till the summer, and after that I will be graduating (if everything goes as planned). After that I don’t know yet what I’ll be doing, but I like the idea about that. There’s a whole lot of opportunity for me out there, and I cannot wait to see what this year will bring me.
Being comfortable is always a nice feeling, but I have also learned that it makes you get stuck in this routine. I don’t want to be stuck. I want to learn, to explore, to meet new people, and to see new places. I want to be uncomfortable! I hope but I also know 2018 will be that kind of year for, and I truly cannot wait to challenge myself.
Wow, I did not expect to have these many clear thoughts this early in the morning. It is now 07:48 am on the 2nd day of 2018, and I cannot be more excited.
