The first day of the rest of my life #Globalgoals

Soooo….I am back…I guess… the last post I wrote was nearly two years ago and started with the same thing.. trying to explain why I was gone for so long…

Well, a lot has happened in my life. I recently quit my job, will go back to university next week and am thinking about maybe becoming my own boss (as I figured, I can’t be worse than my previous ones).

But that’s only one of the reasons why I decided to write a blogpost. There is something else I wanted to talk about. It all started with a video I saw on youtube by one of my favourite youtubers, John Green:

side note: I just realised that wordpress also got a lot nicer since I was here last time.

It then continued a few days later with another video by his similarly awesome brother Hank:

In case you can’t (or don’t want to) watch a video right now, I will give you a short summary (I highly recommend to watch the videos tho!).

Both talk about the Global Goals that the UN set to make the world a better place by 2030. John explains what has changed since they last set the goals 15 years ago and Hank introduces us to the 17 new goals for the next 15 years. As they are both made of awesome, they want to motivate everyone to help with the goals – this is a job for all of us after all. And for me…it worked! I am motivated. So I had the spontanious idea to dedicate one week for every goal and try to do something according the goal. Some of them will be easy and some of them really hard and I haven’t really planned it through so I am not sure how this will turn out.

At first I wanted to start next week, but this week is just too perfect for one of the goals, so I decided to start today. As this post is already getting really long, I will post about this weeks goal and what I am doing about it tomorrow. Until then you can find further information and all the goals here:

I would be really happy if you decided to join me on this!
