Happy New Year! & 2015 Wrap Up


All the best wishes for 2016! 😀

I hope you all had a nice holiday season, whether you celebrated Christmas or not. New year’s day is always a nice moment for looking at what has come before, but also at what is still yet to come.

2015 was not an easy year for me on the personal front. It was the year I struggled to finish my bachelor’s thesis, started at a new university, and had to fight to keep up. Though I love my blog, and finally found a good flexible schedule, I lost the energy to do anything but study and sleep. It wasn’t all bad though – 2015 saw a huge amount of travel. Within the year I went to London, Bruges, Paris, AND Milan, and we visited the Rock am Ring festival. I love to travel, and it has been fantastic to have the freedom to actually roam around Europe like this.

For the upcoming few months, life will have to wait, or at least take a back seat. If all goes well, I will graduate in July, receiving my MA in Culture History. After that, I’ll have to take the last step towards full maturity – finding a job! In many ways, 2016 will be a venture into the unknown, but after years of following a rather exact plan, I enjoy that insecurity. Many adventures are to be had!
