I wanted to share with you some of what has made 2017 so special. Health Physical health Let’s start with the most important topic: health. My physical health had been really good. I only got sick once in the beginning of the year after the exam period was over and I was traveling to Vienna and Amsterdam. Which was quite unfortunate but it reminded me again that I […]
