The calendar year 2022 is drawing to a close. Running crosswise to this is the academic year, in which we are in the midst of. These general time calculations are overlaid by your personal time periods, which are shaped by your individual goals, projects and life circumstances. Some of you are about to complete your studies and are already looking ahead to the professional world, others have just immersed themselves in the first months of their studies and have their first exams in front of them.
