2017. A brand new year. Brand new things that can and hopefully will come. I have some things planned out which I would love to do and set my mind to when I have more spare time. Though I'm very curious for brand new things and enthusiastic to start them, it doesn't seem like a new year yet.
Which isn't a good nor a bad thing. I'm in de middle, or actually almost at the end of my internship, which made the holidays feel like a little break instead of a new year. Working at Foam has been so good, and I hope I can still develop myself some more, since there are only three weeks left! Though at the same time I long for something new. It’s a very big two-sides thing. I think that when my internship is over, it will feel like a new year, or a new beginning.
Secretly I also long for school again, to have some more time off, some more time to just breathe and to learn some more. Working 40 hours a week can be quite a challenge sometimes and the weeks are passing by with a very high speed. After Foam and before school starts again I'll be moving to Nijmegen, and I can't wait to move to the city where I feel most at home. But more about that soon. Then when settled there I'll be starting specialization, I'm going to do Content Design and I look forward to going back to school as well (yes, I really am). Then in March, Marlou and I planned a city trip to Lisbon, can't wait to go! (any good tips are very very welcome). I haven't had the time to search for places to go there, but I definitely will when I have some more spare time.
I think that after my internship is over, it will feel like a new year. Like a new start and a new beginning. Maybe then the feeling of 2017 will get to me. Maybe a little cliché, but I made a list (making lists is so satisfying) for myself including some things I would really love to do.
About once a week, to clear my head and to get some more energy
Finally take that sewing course
Below my sisters student room there is a sewing atelier where you can follow courses. I have my Mom's old sewing machine and I would really love to learn some more, and make my own clothing. Plus then I can visit my sister every time I'm there.
Make a portfolio
This is something I still have to think about, but I would love to put some work together.
Back to Ballet
When I started my internship in Amsterdam there was no time left to travel back home for the ballet classes. When I'm back at school I really want to to back again (still have my pointes on the wall)
Photograph and blog more
Something I really love to do, but I set it aside when I'm stressed or when I'm busy with school or work. I hope to make some more time for this.
So that is, for now, my prospect for 2017. Maybe the list will get longer along the way. It is such a great way to write all this down upon here. I hope I'll be able to start with these sort of resolutions soon. Maybe I have already started by writing this blog post. What are your plans for 2017?
