Greetings everyone! You are all amazing, wonderful and beautiful! Hope everyone is having an amazing day so far, but if you are not having an okay day, know that you can get through all the hard struggles. Don’t give up, if you want to lash out, do it if it will make you feel good! Lots of love and support from me to everyone!
My very first blog was just an introduction and I promised you all that i would talk about the plans I’ve made for the new year, 2019. Let’s hear the drum rolls please!
I welcomed the new year with a new challenge. A challenge that gives me the opportunity to grow and learn about new things.
This new challenge is called Hack o’ mation. Now, what is Hack o’ mation? Hack o’ mation is a competition that gives youngsters, but also older people the chance to broaden their horizons. By that they get the chance to fulfill whatever their imaginations desire when it comes to new technology and innovation.
Why is Hack o’ mation a new challenge for me? Because this is something way out my comfort zone. I have never been much of a tech person. My field of expertise is environmental science. The few things I know about ICT is working with Microsoft office. That’s it! So yes, of course this will become a new challenge for me that I will definitely face with bravery and lots of courage. This is also a way for me to develop myself. I shouldn’t only stay in my comfortable little box. But I have to explore, challenge myself more, learn new things in order for me to grow. Wish me luck!
I look at this new challenge with much eagerness and enthusiasm because I will find myself in a different setting. I have the chance to meet new people with different backgrounds and their expertise on other things. That is what makes this challenge even more exciting.
So far, I’m having a blast. I’m making new friends and have been learning about IoT, Internet of Things. I still need to process all the information. I feel extremely happy and that feels so amazing!
That came on number 1 of my list for 2019! On number 2 is something I also see as a challenge. It is intriguing, fun amazing, yet a challenge. My second challenge is my blog! Writing a blog can be a bit of a struggle. Why? Because you have to think about the content you want to write about, how you want to write that content, the layout, honestly everything!
Never in my entire life I thought I would start with my very own blog. Honestly, I really love it and sometimes I get amazed by the things I write about and how I relay the information. It gives me such an immense joy to write and the best part of it is that I get to share all of this with everyone! I really hope I’ll keep doing this. I have a dream that one day I will publish my very first book. Hopefully I’ll get to do that and in the future you’ll all read my books.
Looking at my list, this one is very important. Number 3 on my list is getting my propaedeutic diploma and proceeding to graduate from the Anton de Kom University. I want to graduate in 2020 or 2021. After graduating I would love to work for organizations such as CI stands for Conservation International, ACT stands for Amazon Conservation Team or maybe work for big businesses such as Staatsolie, IAMGOLD SURINAME or Rosebel Gold Mine in an environment department.
Now, this one is also a very important goal I am determined to achieve. I have a dream to be financial independent. Before I get there, I have to become financial literate. At the moment I have tons of books to read. A book I’ve finished recently was Rich Dad Poor Dad. This book is a must read to understand why you should become financial independent. It has helped me with my mindset.
A book I’m currently reading is “Currency Trading for dummies”.
Other books I have on my list are:
1. Think and Grow Rich
2. How to win friends and influence people
3. The 7 habits of highly effective people
For now these books are on top of my reading list. Very small steps to be financially literate.
Another challenge that I have given myself is programming. I have decided to start taking basic programming courses. Why is that? I guess I want to see how far I can go. I am challenging myself.
So far this is how I’ve planned my 2019. Very excited for this but also for other opportunities! That is it for this blog post. I hope you like it! Until the next one! Farewell and have a good day or night wherever you are!
