My first wave! My first blogpost! I can’t believe I actually did this. I’ve been thinking about a blog for a while, but as you know, sometimes it’s easier to keep talking about stuff instead of actually putting in some effort and just doing it.
So here we are. The first one. Let’s start with a cliché: the new year’s resolutions.
Let’s face it. Our new year’s resolutions are bullsh*t. You know, every year the same: I’ll start a healthier lifestyle, eat more vegetables, get a gym membership, …
Some people even say they want the new year to be better or they want to be happier. But tell me, how do you accomplish that? Resolutions like these last two need more than just words. They need actions and initiative.
So my new year’s resolution is to act on my thoughts. There are so many ideas in my head and sometimes it’s hard to not be overwhelmed by them. So instead of creating more ideas, it was time to just do something. Anything. Let’s face it, anything is better than nothing. So my first step was… buying a notebook.

I know, I know, that’s not a big step, but hey, give me a break. It’s a first step. And that’s exactly what I’m trying to say here. If you set goals, make sure they are doable. It gives you a happy feeling.
So I’m happy as a child with my notebook and I use it a lot. Every idea, about this blog, about school, about conversations I need to have, everything has a rough copy in my notebook. So now I have a little book full of lists, things to do, things I can’t forget, things I already did, things I want to tell someone, … Well, I am who I am, there’s still a lot of chaos in there… But it’s still fun to see my ideas are developing.
So that’s it. I hope some of you will buy a notebook too. Write everything down, it’s yours. Make sure it’s a written version of your thoughts and read them again and again (and again if necessary). They give you a whole new perspective on things. I also chose to make the front page a little more personal (see picture above!), so it would really be MY notebook.
