#663 Q & A – General – 2 – WORK, BLOG & RACING

My inbox is always open to question of yours, but apparently nobody has any questions. Well, in order to do a proper Q & A sessions, questions are the key element, the ingredient that can make the difference, no, that actually makes the difference. Questions build the fundament of any Q & A session. They are the baseline, the starting point. But what should I do? Keep on waiting? Nah, in this project I don’t feel like waiting! If you have no questions, fine, but don’t complain about my stupid questions to myself.

Well, first of all, Andi, how are you?

Oh, hi! Thank you for asking! I am actually doing pretty great! But that shouldn’t be a surprise! I am always doing great! In my life, bad days do not exist! I simply do not have the time to waste it with having a bad day! But sure, you do not really want to know how I am. Who cares, right? Well, I will give myself an answer anyways. I am still looking for a job, but, surprise, surprise, I will have my first job interview next week on Tuesday! YAY!!! 🥳 Sure, my knee feels still a bit strange, but I will have my next appointment after the MRT at the doctor soon. It’s an interesting situation by the way. It doesn’t hurt, it doesn’t look strange, but it feels different. Sure, after struggling with this for a couple of weeks, by leg has just become weak and insecure, but well, hopefully I will be able to get going and doing some proper sport very soon.

You haven’t found your dream job jet, you have already mentioned that, but how is your current job?

In fact, my current job is surprisingly interesting and awesome. I have learned so much in the past 5 weeks already. Becoming an engineer doesn’t mean to finish university and that’s it. Now, the journey has just begun. Having worked on the product side of life pretty much all the time, it’s interesting to dive deep into manufacturing processes these days. Sure, I am familiar with production lines and the way things are supposed to be. But I was never diving as deep into this field, as I am doing right now. Sure, it’s just a temporary job and I should really find something serious soon, but the team is awesome and I can learn a lot.

How is it possible for you to still manage to do all of these very time consuming things at the same time?

An interesting question to ask. In fact, 99,9 % of the world population couldn’t do it. Sure, sounds like I think that I am something better, but that is not it. I am standing with both feet right on the ground. But what differentiates me from other people are just two little things. Discipline and passion. My days start early, getting up at 5:30 am these days. I start working as soon as possible somewhere between 6:00 am and 6:30 am. On my way to work I am listening to podcasts of course. Italian, English, sometimes I listen to this awesome one about the real motorsport from the past. It’s called “Alte Schule”, which means “old school”. Starting to work early allows me to leave work early as well. Therefore, most of the time I am back at home at around 4 pm, having done my work and already some 50 minutes of podcasts. Oh wait, I am doing Italian during my lunch breaks. Coming home with my head pretty much done for the day, I refill my water bottle and just keep on going. The best thing after a long day at work? Either sport in the home gym or my simulator practice. Sure, sometimes I just swim in the pool, but it’s still very cold these days. Or at least, it’s too cold for me. #Weichei! After one of those activities I need food, eating something I have cocked with my Thermo Mix during my other activities or something from yesterday, or just something easy. If it’s not Tuesday, I don’t have any other meetings in the evening, therefore, I can do my blog right after eating. Sitting here right now and writing these lines, surprise surprise. After the blog, there is still a lot of time left. Sport, simulator, reading, conversations with some friends via the phone? Actually, there is a lot of time on a simple day to do things, but sure, you need to want to do it. The thing for me is just that, I have goals to reach. I have dedicated my life to reaching these goals. Therefore, I do not need to motivate myself for doing anything. I just do it. Not because I need to, but because I want to. And honestly, all of this makes just so much fun, a day is better, so to speak, if I am able to do what I love.

And that is it already. Next time, please, send me some questions! How is it possible that nobody has any questions?

See you next time!
