2011 & The Idea

Posted on: January 5, 2012

Hi there,

so, after a pretty damn awesome 2011, 2012 promises to be exciting but will be hard pressed to beat all the memories, fun and incredible experience I was lucky to make in 2011.

You may wonder what exactly made 2011 so amazing:

  • Living in London, Boston and Cologne
  • Finishing my MBA and starting a new Job
  • Being THE German amongst THE Indians and South Americans
  • A visit to Shanghai with Maya
  • Seeing long lost friends again and making plenty of new friends all around the world
  • Being truly international
  • Hult Global Case Challenge and other projects
  • Sailing in Boston
  • Lingo’s
  • “My Pub” in London
  • The Portuguese aka Vampi 😉
  • Living for 3 months with my best friends
  • Skydiving

You see, it’s a hard to beat list 😉

Hence, to set myself some goals and to give 2012 a reasonable chance of living up to 2011, I am intending to do at least 12 things I always aimed to do, but somehow never managed to do or never mustered the courage to do it. (Admittedly, I stole the original idea of “12” from my sister (I aimed to make New Years resolutions like to lose a couple of kg’s, eat more healthily & a bunch of things that will go into “The List” anyways) – thanks Eli!)

So, follow me on the journey of 2012!
