This week, I graduated for high school. I am rather happy to be done, and although I do not consider this to be a big achievement, I am glad to have completed that part of my life!

 

Now, I can move on and have much more focus, time and energy for meaningful activities. In the last 2 days, I have already accomplished so much.. and I am celebrating that!!
