I take a deep breath.
I almost made it.
Almost. I gather my strength for the last round.
My life moves so fast these days that I feel like someone has put it on fast forward. Fast, and then faster still. And I wish I could pause it, enjoy the moment, breathe deeply, and then continue at regular pace.
There is so much happening right now, all of it at the same time, and that’s beautiful, but somehow it also means I’m not able to really live consciously through all these experiences. Above all, I am functioning. And when I drop into bed at night, exhausted by the day, I fall asleep immediately. What’s happening, you ask?
Firstly, there’s the big TV project, which took me to Munich first, then to Iceland and next week to Lisbon. I have to admit that I completely underestimated the shoot, and as a result my perspective on TV shows has changed completely. Even though we didn’t have to repeat scenes all that often, the process is very time consuming and takes a lot of concentration. I really felt for the cameramen in particular, whose job is even more physically demanding. Incredible how much work goes into such a production. Apart from the TV show, which is a huge deal for me, another dream came true this week. I held a 4 day workshop at AMD (the Academy for Fashion and Design). The course was called ‘Advanced Blogging’, and it was so much fun, to the point that it didn’t even feel like work at all. I felt completely natural in my role as lecturer, and could actually imagine doing this on a frequent basis. Who knows what the future holds. There was only one aspect of teaching that I really struggled with: leaving my students after the 4 days we worked together.
But even at this extreme pace, I am enjoying my projects at least as much as I am looking forward to the break afterwards. I’ll be able to take it a bit slower in about a week and a half. Up until then I’ll have to make do with little sleep and on full steam to keep the blog and all the projects going.
