The past few days have been just insane, and with that its about time to say: That’s it! 🙂 Over and out, my longest break from work is in the books! I feel like five years ago (yep, its a good thing 🙂 ) and I’m more than excited to get it started all over again! 🙂 A fresh start from zero usually means a lot of changes and I’m super stoked to get them all sorted and get going 100% NOW! The best part about it, I’m already fully on it. I’ve had the first shooting with my friends from Bavarian Couture, a bunch of meetings and loads of sessions in the editing booth.
Video w/ Bavarian Couture here.
The past few weeks were very unusual for me. I would say I’m used to action and constant changes 24/7, and now I’ve been in my comfort zone for almost two months straight. Crazy!
Here my past seven weeks and my personal learnings in a recap:
- “Working hard” for a bunch of years requires a ton of retreat
- I couldn’t let go of my daily routine of having a “wake-up call at 05 in the morning” for almost six weeks
- I ran completely blind into my next “go go go mode” – I trained six times a week. Seriously. I’ve been exhausted. Stupid.
- It takes as long to get rid of routines as long as it takes to get used to new ones!
- Work smart, not hard.
And maybe the biggest learning: Don’t take life too serious all the time – I know this is nothing new, but to actually live by that requires a ton of energy from my side.
Here a recap from the past few days.
Sunday: Editing for Bavarian Couture, gym session, birthday’s and in general go out to party 🙂
Monday: 04am wakeup call. Fly to Hamburg for very successful meetings with Georg, Justin, and Charlie. Fly back home to Munich at night and prep for Tuesday’s mission. Weirdest thing about the day: It’s been snowing more in Hamburg than at home in Munich.
Tuesday: 03.15am wakeup call. Go for a sunrise mission with my friend Dominik who’s managing the IG account bavarianexplorer. Look at his Instagram. He’s out there pretty much every weekend taking insane photos all over Bavaria. Makes me realize again and again that you don’t necessarily need to travel 10 hours to do dooope things! 🙂
My face after hiking up haha. Dying – haha 😀 . My legs were not as strong as I thought. After a few hours, once we reached the top it got cloudy. The photos above were taken in a 2 minute sunny window. Not as good as it could have been, but being out there in the white is never disappointing at all! You just gotta make the most out of it 🙂 . This drone shot Dominik almost forced me to do. Such a dope location:
For all the nerds: Shot on DJI Mavic Pro.
Today I pretty much spent all day at home catching up on emails, organizing, and editing for about 6 hours.
Time to make 2018 an epic one! 110%! 🙂
