2017: Thank God it’s over!

All in all 2017 was quite a horrible year, in more than one way.

One year ago, that is December 31, 2016, I hoped for 2017 to be the year of BALANCE in every single area of my life:

  • balanced diet
  • balanced working hours
  • balanced spendings and savings
  • balanced time with my loved ones

But it wasn’t meant to be:

  • I gained weight and am now heavier than ever. 🙁
  • I worked crazy hours: 10,50 hours on average, 45 minutes of which are meant to be a break 🙁
  • I bought the remaining stock of 3 Trollbeads dealers. Not only didn’t I build new savings, no, I also spent all existing savings. It’s a miracle that there are a few bucks left on my account at the end of the year. 🙁
  • I had to spend so much time at my Mom’s and Mr. Poppy’s place (two different cities), that there were months where I barely spent any time in my own apartment (third city). As a matter of fact most of the time I spent in Munich (the city I live in), I was working or sleeping … Or buying Trollbeads 🙂 …

And now, December 31, 2017, I hope for the exact same thing, I hoped one year ago:
