Day in the Life

Now that I’m back to my semester routine I thought I’d share what a day in my life looks like. Of course, when I thought about how I wanted to share my day with you I knew I had to do it Hallie Wilson style aka minute by minute (though no one could ever be as funny as Hallie).

Wednesday January 28, 2015

6:30 a.m. The alarm on my phone starts to go off and I scramble to turn it off before I wake up my roommate.

6:32 a.m. Still lying in bed thinking there is no way in hell I can go to the gym right now.

6:33 a.m. I can hear my suite-mate (and gym buddy) putting her shoes on in the kitchen so I pull myself out of bed and change into gym clothes.

6:45 a.m. I start pushing my feet to turn the elliptical on as I look for the next episode of Serial on my iPhone. I’m currently obsessed with Serial and would love more podcast suggestions.

7:05 a.m. I’m 2/3 of the way done with my workout… and I kind of feel like death. The only way I’ll work out is if I do it in the morning, but it s.u.c.k.s. a lot.

7:30 a.m. Into the shower I go. Thank god for warm morning showers. (I still want to crawl back into bed though)
7:45 a.m. The best part of the day – Breakfast. My current go-to is vanilla greek yogurt, strawberries, a little Kind granola and a slice of multi-grain toast with butter.

8:30 a.m. I’ve been procrastinating for the last half hour and now I have twenty minutes to get dressed, do my makeup, and put by bag together. oops.

8:50 a.m. I head into the freezing arctic island of Manhattan and slip and slide through the snow and ice as the wind slaps my face. Yeah, no fun whatsoever.

9:30 a.m. My first class of the day, Economics of Global Business, begins as I shut my computer after reading The Skimm.

10:45 a.m. EGB is over. Woooooo.

11:00 a.m. Movie Marketing, my favorite class this semester, starts off with a few hilarious trailers. My favorite is the trailer for Ben Hur from 1959.

12:15 p.m. My stomach is grumbling as I walk to my Marketing Society meeting where we will be playing a fun brand logo game and snacking on delicious dumplings.

2:45 p.m. I arrive at my Admissions Ambassador shift just in time! Thank god the building my classes were in are connected to my work building because I’m dreading going outside.

5:00 p.m. I leave work and swing by Toby’s Estate quickly to get a boost of caffeine before another meeting.
6:00 p.m. Last meeting of the day! Brainstorming ideas for the USWIB conference that is just a few weeks away. I cannot wait to go home.

7:05 p.m. I’m finally heading up Broadway on my way home and it is freakin’ cold. The food in my fridge is the only thing getting me through this weather. Chicken and rice here I come!

7:45 p.m. Yes. Food. I couldn’t be happier as I sit at the kitchen table catching up with my roommates and checking my email.

8:30 p.m. All I have to do is finish up a few projects for Dressometry and I’m home free.

9:30 p.m. The semester has just started which means I have nothing to do yet for class so I settle into my bed with an episode (or a few) of Friday Night Lights.

11:10 p.m. Lights go off and I am out. The only good thing about working out in the morning is by the time I go to bed I am conked out.

Phew. That was kind of a lot of information… and luckily that was one of my busier days. Plus, after a busy Wednesday I usually have a very easy Thursday. Hope you enjoyed this look into my day and let me know if you want to see more!
