Day 48: On Sunday i had band practice with my band, really enjoyed it? Day 49: Monday was quite bland, had university the whole day. Don't really enjoy it anymore Day 50: Read a lot of business articles , because I want to start a business
Day 46: Spend the day at university and with my girlfriend, the weather was absolutely amazing. Day 47: Finally went running again after a pretty much forced 2 day break because of being super tired . Was awesome. Did a lot of mixing and finally bought an awesome limiter plugin. Sounds really nice. Really looking forward using it!
Day 40 Can't believe it is already 40 days. Time flies super fast when you have so much fun. Went for a run and did a lot of mixing . Also I bought a saturation plugin from Klanghelm. It is supposed to make the digital sound a bit more analogue and it really delivers that. Awesome plugin! If some of you are doing some audio-production SDRR from Klanghelm is nice and cheap! Day 41 Alright. Today I recorded with a friend of mine. That's it. No time left, but was really fun!
Day 38 Nothing extraordinary happened. Went running and to university.
Day 39 Sold my gaming PC! I sold it for 370€ so i bought Logic Pro X for 220€ which i need for my audio production. My legs were a bit sore from running, but I still did my pushups, crunches and squads. Spend the rest of the day with my girlfriend. Sadly I drank Coca-Cola and ate a burger, which isn't that good for my health. Next time I will try to controll myself better.
Day 36: Went running and didn't have university. Got a lot of mixing done. Day 37: Today was one of the best days of my life. A friend of mine had his final test today for becoming a chef and he invited me and my girlfriend to eat what he cooks. And it was phenomenal. Great food. It was a 7-course menu and it was really cheap ( we only had to pay for the food cost). After that I went for a walk with my girlfriend and spend the rest of the evening with her. Just a great day
Day 34: Ran in the morning and went to the city to return the guitar I borrowed from a friend. Also met two girls, who want to create a new band. The talk was quite enjoyable. After that I went home and programmed a few hours for university . Day 35: My legs were quite sore today, so i didn't went running, but I still commited to my pushups, crunches and squads. Meditation today was really relaxing. Tomorrow I will run again, and I am really looking forward to it. Spend the whole day at university. Going to listen to some music and maybe start watching a new series.
Day 31 Helped two friends filming for a university project. Got up at 5 and went up for a run, was completly exhausted when i got home from helping them. Day 32 My legs were aching, so I didn't went for a run, but I made my pushups, crunches and squads. I read a bit in the morning and spend the rest of the day with my girlfriend. At 10 pm I started to mix another song, and was mixing until 3 am. Damn the time goes fast when you enjoy doing something! Day 33 Today I got up and went for a run. I also folded all of my socks and t-shirts properly. I finished reading "The Happiness Advantage". It was quite a nice book. The next book is going to be "Think and Grow Rich". Really looking forward to that one. I had lunch with my girlfriend, my grandfather, my mom and her boyfriend, and my aunt, which was quite enjoyable. After that we went out for a walk, because the weather was just marvellous. Now I will mix a bit.
Day 30: First small milestone I am really happy today. Today I got to my first milestone, and my life is getting better and better. Being super productive the last few days, I am a bit tired, but I feel awesome. You might remember that I registered at nailthemix.com so that I can learn mixing and mastering, and I have just finished creating my first mix. I am only allowed to use 45 seconds of the audio material, so i had to chop the song up and only take the parts that I found interesting. Don't forget to check out the original, so you can compare my mix. https://soundcloud.com/matthias-k-prime/cognizance-the-succession-of-flesh-my-mix It is definitely better than my last mix, at least I feel that way.
Anyway today I also went for a run, and made my own smoothies! I bought a mixer yesterday and it is just awesome. It is much better that the ones you can buy, and a lot cheaper. I also have the ideas for the next Hell soundtrack laid out, but I am not really good at playing guitar, so I have to practice quit a bit until I get it right. Tomorrow I will help two friend with their university project in terms of audio, and I am really looking forward to that.
The last thirty days were pretty successful I would say. My productivity skyrocketed, and I am a much happier person now. The two things that improved the most though are appreciation and patience. I am starting to enjoy the little things, like getting the front seat at the top of a double decker bus, or breathing in fresh air when I am running, or drinking cold water in the morning. I don't tap nervously around when I have to wait in-line at a store, and I don't get annoyed at long bus rides. I actually enjoy them. I love listening to podcasts, and my want/must read list of books is immense already, and I plan to read them all. Really looking forward what the next 30 days will bring!
I am now quite close to thirty days, really looking forward to it. Today I went for a really nice run. The weather was absolutly fantastic. I just loved it. I bought a mixer so I can make my own smoothies, and they are really good, however I need to put more water into one. It was a bit too thick. Today I finished the soundtrack for the second hell level for my university project. You have to fight the seven sins in hell and this one is sloth: https://soundcloud.com/matthias-k-prime/seven-sins-of-hell-a-soundtrack-to-sloth After that I went to university and helped the students. Then I talked a bit on my phone with my girlfriend. A new episode from "Better call Saul" is out, so I am going to watch this and then read a bit and go to sleep.
Day 28: Today I went running again. Was completly exhausted afterwards but felt really good. Was productive the whole day and ate really good food. I am half-way through another mix. Really looking forward to finishing it.
