So here we are! It’s FINALLY a new year and that means laying out my personal goals and strategy for the most important areas of my life. I also do this monthly with smaller and more detailed goals – so in similarity to national economics – the year goals are the macro goals and the monthly goals are the micro goals. What you are about to read here is a briefer, less detailed version of my very personal private version. I find it VERY helpful in my personal development to lay out these kind of plannings on a regular basis. I urge you to try it for yourself if you, like me, have a burning ambition and goals you wish to conquer in your own life! It will give you a tremendous feeling of accomplishment, give you a better perspective and put you in more control of your future. Let’s do it! See you in December 2016 with an evaluation.

Not much to address here, and that’s actually how I aim to keep it. I’m not actively looking for a relationship – on the contrary, I’m trying my best to focus on my time-consuming education. I unfortunately fear that getting into a relationship will make the poor girl miserable since I won’t have much time to spend with her. At this point in my life, I have no doubt that I would be eligible for the “most boring boyfriend ever” award. I can see the scenario in my mind:
Girlfriend: – Darling, do you want to go to the cinema?
Me: No. Have to study advanced vector calculus.
Girlfriend: – Darling, do you want to out to eat?
Me: No. Have to study quantum mechanics.
Girlfriend: – Darling, do you want to do [insert fun activity]?
Me: No. Have to study [insert nerdy and hard math or physics course].
A miserable girl = me getting guilty conscience = taking time and focus off school = blowing my education. That simply can’t happen and I won’t take the risk. Let that part of my life come when I’m ready.
