Yes, here we go again: the annual New Year's Resolutions-Post. This is the last post for my "Festive Edit" series this year. I feel kind of sad, as I really enjoy December so much, but I am also excited about a new beginning, the next chapter. 
____________________________________________________________
Exactly one year ago I published a post all about the things I want to achieve in 2017. So let's quickly recap on this before we move on. 

1. Getting Healthier
Well, this kind of worked and kind of not. In 2017 I definitely worked out way more than I ever did     before, but I could really work on eating healthy way more. I feel like this slipped a bit this year.

2. Finding My Path
I mean you probably feel like you are constantly evolving and finding your path your whole life. But this year I definitely came closer to myself and what I want to do with my life. I finally started my Master in Economics and I feel like for the first time in a long long time I have a plan again. 

3. Reading More
Well, this one is a bit debatable. I do read more than I did in 2016, but this is probably mostly because of the things I have to do for University. But that counts, right?

4. Be More Responsible With Money
YES YES YES. I can absolutely and confidently say that I improved here. I have an actual savings account now and I don't randomly spend money anymore when I don't really need the item. Even my boyfriend can vouch for that haha. 

5. Stop Procrastinating 
It's really hard to measure this one, but I would say I also improved here. I think it's nothing I worked on consciously, it was more a necessity to stay sane. It's quite a bit of work to balance University, my blog, Instagram, the gym and my social life. You really have to be quite productive to keep up with everything. If I can say so, I am a bit proud of myself to have managed everything the way I did. 

So all in all 2017 was quite a successful year for me, but there are a few parts of my life that could use some improvement.

So what do I wish for in 2018? 

1. Getting Healthier
This one will have to stay on my list of things I want to achieve in the new year. As I said, I made quite the progress on my fitness journey, but the nutrition side of things is really lacking at the moment. So I hope to better myself and eat more consciously and all in all more healthy. And of course, keep on working out regularly. 

2. Succeeding in University 
I am not going to lie, the first semester of my Masters was more than tough. I don't really have the background knowledge most of the other students have and you could really tell that. While they could revise what they learned before and learn even more, I had to start all over again. I am proud to say I have passed all the exams nevertheless, but the grades are still not where I want them to be. So I hope I will continue to study that hard, maybe will improve with time and eventually catch up to everyone else. 

3. Feeling at home somewhere
It's really hard to explain, but I am currently living in a tiny flat while I figure out where I actually want to go. I will stay another year in University, in case everything goes right, so I will most probably stay in this transitional "home" until then. I can't wait for a place that I can really call home. A place I can furnish and decorate the way I want. And where I have all my belongings in one place. At the moment they are just split between my mother's house and my flat. Realistically this won't happen before 2019, but a girl can dream, right? 

4. Travel more
I bet this one is also on your list. I just want to escape my little word more often. See new places, experience life the way other people do and just change my perspective. I hope to do that way more in 2018. On my list would be anywhere in Scandinavia, Austria, the UK, the US, Newzealand and so on. The list could literally be endless.. 

What are your New Year's Resolutions if you have any?
