My 2019 Highlight Reel

Hey my loves,

Oh my god, 2019 is ending today. I cannot believe how quickly this year has passed. I noticed that the older I get the faster time passes. I wonder why that is…

But another new beginning means saying goodbye to a great 365 days of laughter, love, crying, good and bad days and so much more. And I for one am a sucker for a highlight reel. What about you?

So much happened this year, sometimes you don’t even realize how much can happen in twelve months until you look back. 2019 has been a year with a lot of highs and a lot of lows. But I feel like what would you learn from life without the lows, right? It’s how you deal with them. Now, let’s take a look at some of my 2019 highlights.

January to March

In the beginning of the year I took some much needed time away from social media, which I used to focus that time on myself and my needs. I went to a masters fair to see if I find a masters program which would suit me. I did, but that turned to something I will probably touch on some time in the new year.

I also managed to take an exam I have been dreading to do again. I was so anxious to fail it again, because a lot was resting on that one exam and I don’t do good in exams. Honestly, I can write one paper after the other or multiple ones at the same time, but one exam gives me so much anxiety. But, I PASSED.

I ticked something of my bucket list in March of 2019, which was to go to my homelands capital. I always wanted to go, because I feel like it’s something everyone should experience and I really wanted to see some of the historical sights.

April to June

The three months of April to June was focusing a lot of time and energy of writing my bachelor thesis. I wrote it while I still had to attend a lot of courses and working my part time job, so it was a struggle to say the least, but one that was so worth it. I also finished it a week or so earlier than I had to which gave me time to really proof read it and put some finishing touches on.

In June I also became an aunt for the second time to a beautiful boy, who is just the absolute cutest little human being you have ever seen.

July to September

Time to hand in my thesis. I will never forget how jittery, excited and full of fear I was while I handing in my thesis. One life changing moment right there. The wait for my grade was absolute hell, but in the end I was so happy to have passed and get my degree. Best years of my life, so far.

I needed a little vacation after my hell of a semester so I went to stay with my family in southern Germany. I had the best few days and felt really rejoiced when I got back. I also decided to re-do my entire apartment, because I felt like it was time for a change.

October to December

I had a super fun photoshoot day with my best friend in October where we not only took some of my favorite pictures but also got to explore a side of Düsseldorf, which we have never been to. It was so much fun, sometimes just exploring makes me the happiest. To see some of the pictures, go check out my Instagram.

For my birthday this year I didn’t want to host a party, so instead I went to a theater piece. We saw a postmodern version of Hamlet which was phenomenal. It was so fun, exciting and full of life. We immediately decided that we had to see 1984 with the same musical director and actor as well.

I also went onto a really funny trip with my grandma and her mates. It was such a weird and funky day, because I was literally the youngest person on that trip, but honestly, I had a blast. And I love spending quality time with my granny.

2019 has been absolutely life changing. I am officially done with my Bachelor degree, I almost finished my apartment to the extend I want and I had lots of fun days with friends and family. I am grateful for all of my blessings and I cannot wait what the new decade will bring.

2020 is gonna be great.

I wish you all a wonderful day and a save and fun New Year’s Eve.

XoXo, Jasmin.

Hey my loves,

Long time no see. How are you all doing?

I’ve been a little MIA since the beginning of this year and there have been many reasons why. First, I took some time away from social media the entire January and it was such a good experience. Then I just got way too busy with work and College stuff that I just did not have any time to create content for you guys. I would love to say that I am back with two entries a week but I think I cannot promise that, since I will be starting my last semester of my bachelor degree in April and simultaneously will start to work on my bachelor thesis. I am going to try to put up one entry per week, I think that will be do-able, but if not, please bear with me.

Now some things have changed since the last time we spoke to each other: I changed my hair. I was just not having as much fun with my long hair as I used to have, it just got to a length, where it did not look good unless I styled it, and that, for most days, took way to long. So one evening I cut it off, after going a little lighter in color. What do you think?

I am currently writing my last paper for my bachelor’s degree and am preparing to register my bachelor thesis, so a lot of reading has been happening for me. I cannot believe that I am actually almost finished, it feels so surreal. Would you like me to write a blog post about how I am feeling and how I am coping with things? Maybe even a little post about my future plans? What you think? Let me know.

What is there to be expected the next few weeks? Well, I have been on a short weekend away to Berlin with my best friend, so I will write a couple of entries about how we planned it, how we saw everything we wanted in one day and a little photo entry, maybe. I am also planning for a few college related contents, but if you have any suggestions or wishes, just let me know and I see what I can do.

Oh, and I have a new make-up routine, which I will share with you soon. And of course, I will write about my experience with a month off of social media. It will probably be my next entry.

I hope you all had a lovely start into 2019 and I cannot wait to get back to writing for you guys.

I wish you all a wonderful day!

XoXo, Jasmin.
