Happy Thursday, lovelies! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve done a day in the life post, so here we are. As is usual when I decide to do a day in the life, I promise myself the night before that yes, I will take many photos the following day. And then I inevitably forget. Until that night. And on it goes.
This time was no exception. I think this was the third (?) day I meant to take pictures. Could be the fourth. Anyways, I won’t say I did a stellar job in the mass-photo department (because I didn’t), but I got a few.
6:00 am–alarm goes off. I usually don’t do this, but I’m still tired and half asleep, so I switch it off and sleep another half hour until Roomie #1’s alarm goes off. I get up, fill up my water bottle, and head outside to get in a workout because I feel like a jumpstart to my day. Right as I finish up, it starts raining (perfect timing) and I head back inside to change.
Normally, I would eat right away buuuuuut it’s best to go right at 8:00 because all the people with 8:00 am classes are gone and the 9:00 am class people have not yet arrived. So I map out my game plan for the day work on some French homework before putting on rain boots and heading to breakfast.
8:00 am–breakfast. Oatmeal it is, plus unpictured cottage cheese and lots of tea. Forgive the lighting/black plastic bowl, etc. #collegelife
I sort of got into the habit of studying during breakfast on mornings when I don’t eat with other people. But lately, I’ve been trying not to study while I eat. It makes my mornings feel so much more calm. On my way out, I nab a couple hardboiled eggs and a banana for snacking.
8:45 am–head to French, then chem. On my way to chem, I get caught in a downpour and arrive soaked because I neglected to grab a jacket. Oh well. At least I had my rain boots.
11:00–get back to my room. Eat a hardboiled egg. Make coffee. Eat a piece of dark chocolate. Drink coffee. Work on some chem homework. Head to my Social Problems class.
1:00–lunchtime, finally. Salad with hummus, roasted vegetables, rice, and tofu.
An aside: on Tuesday, three different people commented on my salads. Others will be known as homecoming queen, or star basketball player, or science genius; I will be known as Expert Salad Maker. I’m not mad about it.
After lunch, it’s study study study, with a stretch/plank break thrown in when I get restless.
Smoothie sometime during the afternoon.
Also give my plants a little water.
5:30ish–dinner with friends. No picture because I forgot.
When I get back, I take a super long shower, which is not a norm for me. But sometimes, you need that time to think. At my school, guys are only allowed in the girls’ dorms at certain times, and I always always always forget that open hours are on Wednesday nights. Don’t they know that I take showers on Wednesday night and that I like to get dressed in my room instead of juggling my clothes in the bathroom trying not to drop them on the wet floor? Anyways, I stick my nose out the door and look both ways before hightailing it to my room in my towel. The story of my Wednesday nights.
I study for a little longer, then settle in to write this post. It’s only 9:00, but I’ve been running on too little sleep, so I think I’ll call it a night and maybe listen to part of a podcast before I go to bed. Last year, I was driving tons and listened to podcasts all the time. Now my podcast feed is brimming with all the unplayed episodes. Sadness. But oh well, I’ll have lots of listening material for all the time I’m going to spend in the kitchen baking over Christmas break.
What are you up to today? Whatever it is, I hope you take a little time to do something that brings you joy!
Linking up for Thinking out Loud!
