Organizing my life in a weekend & why I haven’t uploaded in a month | August Recap


– I haven’t uploaded in a month and here is why. (relaxing upbeat music) Creating videos is still my
favorite thing in the world but there are two factors
that make it pretty hard for me to upload consistently. A, my apartment gets no
natural light whatsoever which makes it next to
impossible to use it for filming, which it makes it really hard for me to always predict the weather
and if I’m gonna be able to actually film. B, and this is probably the bigger one, YouTube is technically not my main job which means that anything
else has to be done before I can sit down and even
think about doing a video. And that is why I thought
about creating videos that are less of a full-on production and more of a check-in with you guys. I personally really enjoy watching vlogs. I never really thought
I’d be the vlogging kind so don’t expect a vlog every single week. But every now and then
I feel like doing one, so let me know if you like it. (car door closing) Good Morning. Every month usually starts in Nürnberg. That is sort of the one
consistent I have in my schedule. In Nürnberg I just
support my mom and I work on whatever is going on. (car keys clinging) I officially feel like a vlogger now because I’m sitting in a car. I have to pick up the dog from daycare and then we are going to shoot a video for my mom and that’s gonna be it
for me pretty much, today and I’m gonna return back
to Berlin tomorrow morning. Hi. Hi. (relaxing upbeat music) I arrived in Berlin this afternoon and I don’t know what it is with Berlin, I always feel like I am in
a funk whenever I arrive. It always takes me a day for some reason to sort of get back into
the swing of things. So today I’m not really
gonna do anything anymore. I’m outside my apartment which is good. I’m gonna have some dinner
and then tomorrow’s Friday which means that we will be organizing our life in a weekend. So last night at dinner
I talked to my friends about having kind of an off
day and one of them said that she is so relieved to hear that. She didn’t mean this in a mean way but rather that she
feels constant pressure to be perfect and she feels less guilt now that she knows I sometimes
don’t do anything for a day. Now, if you feel that way, all I can say is it is
okay to have an off day. It’s okay to feel weird
or sad or unmotivated. For me it becomes an issue when I feel like I can’t turn it off. For me it becomes an issue
when it’s a constant. You’re not responsible for feeling lost but you are responsible for
not doing anything against it. That’s why I love weekends because I feel like I get a chance to reset
everything in three days. So Fridays, Fridays are all
about crossing everything off my to-do list that is work related. So any mail that needs to be answered or whatever project it
is that needs to get out in order for me to shut down my computer for the rest of the weekend, for the next two days. So that’s what we’re gonna do Friday. There is something so relaxing and calming about cleaning. It’s so simple, yet so mind freeing. And my personal tip is listen
to your favorite audiobook or your favorite podcast. I can definitely include
some of mine in the info box. And while you do it you feel like you’re entertaining yourself because you’re listening to something and you are fully into the audiobook or you’re fully into the podcast and you sort of just clean away and don’t even really think
about what you’re doing. So to me personally it almost feels like meditation, doing it. So I appreciate a good day of cleaning, at this point. ♪ Now when I drive around

whole Sunday to myself. That day is ideally
reserved for doing something that takes my mind off work and inspires me in whatever kind of way. So lately that has been going to a museum. I sort of made it a task for
myself to visit one museum or one type of show or
other creative outlet once a week when I’m in Berlin. That’s still a very ideal
goal and I can’t really meet that standard but I get to do it every now and then and I really genuinely enjoy it. (relaxing music) Good morning everybody. I had kind of a boring week
after Sunday’s museum visit. All I did was just run errands, take care of work, stuff like that. But today, well, tomorrow is gonna be exciting because I am packing again and I am going to attend
my friend’s wedding. Alex and Chrissi are getting married. Chrissi is the one who
translate my videos. She’s the translator that I work with so that’s especially exciting. And I’m very happy to
be back in my hometown I don’t really get to visit that often. I’m not going to film
the whole entire time but I’m gonna be able to use
some footage from Tim. If you don’t know Tim, Tim is a incredible wedding videographer and he was so kind to share
some of his footage with me. If you’re getting married, if you’re looking for
a great videographer, I’m gonna let his info in the
information box down below. I know him for so many years and his work is so consistent and good. That’s why I’m especially excited that he will let me use his footage. We better get to packing because we have a fun weekend ahead.
