However, on the other hand, I’ve also started to vlog again, posting videos more regularly – every Friday – and since I’m currently in that stage between high school and university, I’d like to cover this very subject as a video project to keep me going.

I’ll try my best to answer all of you.

Meanwhile here’s my latest video:
