For me, 2016 has been a year of change.
It started off in Amsterdam, where I celebrated New Years with some friends.
Then I figured out that I had failed my first semester of university.
My grandpa died. I miss him really much. But he had been sick for a while, and I guess it was better that way.
After that, I went on yet another journey. This time to Hamburg.
I got my new watch.
Then I went on to go on several other journeys. For example to CeBIT in Hanover, Formula E in Berlin and to a university excursion to Cologne.
I’ve been involved with building an electric race car for Formula Student. I built the dashboard. And even though it doesn’t drive, it was a great experience.
I started blogging again this August. And it’s quite nice to be able to at least write in English once in a while.
I then visited several racing events. The best being Formula Student Germany in Hockenheim on August 10 or so.
I also had some successful exams in university, what is really great.
Then I’ve been to Hamburg for a second time. It was great.
I struggled to get my new backpack after I had ordered (and paid) it. It took 2 months to get to me.
Places I’ve been:
Amsterdam Utrecht Hamburg (1st) Cologne Berlin Hockenheimring Oschersleben Hamburg (2nd)
Things I didn’t expect to happen:
- Donald Trump (him running for US presidency, AND getting elected)
- Standing Rock Protests. Because water is sacred, the source of all life, and should be treated as if everything depends on it. Because it does. Everything depends on water. #nodapl
