2018 personal goals

It’s that time of the year again folk’s! No, I’m not talking about the premiere of the 17th season of paradise hotel. What I AM talking about is planning my year and laying out all my goals and detailed strategic plans for reaching them.

This year is looking to be great! I have a lot of big stuff planned, an example is embarking on a 4 month exchange program to study at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore – a goal I’ve been fighting years to achieve! The seats to the program are limited and the competition is tough. But I finally managed to snag one.

I have so many other things to look forward too, and many areas of my life saw huge improvement during 2017, which I wrote more about in my 2017 review.
