Day in the Life!

Goodmorning and happy humpday!

I absolutely love reading others' Day in the Life posts! I think it's so interesting to see how everyone's days are different, so I've decided to do one of my own. Here is a typical hour-by-hour day in my life!

5:30am: The alarm goes off. Sometimes I feel like snoozing, but most of the time I'm up and going because I've started going to bed around 10pm. (life-changing bed time. I suggest it.) I'm throwing on gym clothes, setting out my breakfast for when I get back from the gym, and maybe* making my bed. (this one is iffy and depends on the day)

6:00am: I arrive at the gym, turn on my Chris Tomlin Pandora channel, and run a mile or two on the tredmill. Lift some quick weights or do a couple of plank holds, and then I drive back to the house. Nothing too intense.

6:15am: I'm heating my hot tea. This morning it's one bag of Green Tea and one English Breakfast tea bag and +one pack of Stevia. I jump in the shower and then eat breakfast while my hair is drying.

7:00am: I pick up my daily devotional and have a little quiet time while I'm eating breakfast. This morning I'm reading Dashing Dish's new devotional and having a chocolate banana protein smoothie. I'm also reheating my tea.

7:40am: Checking email, folding laundry, putting on makeup.

7:50am: I'm out the door! My internship starts at 8am. Thank goodness it isn't too cold outside and I'm not scraping ice off of my car windows. Spill my tea on myself. Thank goodness I'm wearing a dark jacket.

10:00am: Now leaving from my internship and headed to classes. I check my agenda and schedule to see what classes I have while I'm on the bus...What is even today's day of the week? Oh yes. Wednesday. The MLK break through me off schedule a bit. This morning I have Fashion Merchandising. After class, I eat lunch and then I'm back on the road to my internship again.

3:15pm: Hooray! Done with classes and internship duties. Now on the way to the grab gas and head to the grocery store. What should I make for dinner tonight? Anything quick, easy, and preferably carb-loaded sounds good! A box of pasta and organic spaghetti sauce it is. I would love to cook since it is my absolute favorite thing to do, but cooking for one right now (especially during the weekdays) just isn't time-worthy. I grab a couple of cans of soup too. Soup is always good.

4:30pm: Arrive at home, make more tea (surprise, surprise!), check email. Lots and lots of email. Do some freelancing work for another job, plan some blog ideas, check FB and Twitter and Instagram. Yes, my jammies are on now.

5:30pm: Reading, reading, reading. So much to catch up on for other classes. Lots of highlighting and sticky notes. I may check Instagram, Twitter, FB, and text in between chapters. You a chapter, get to check Instagram. That's studying motivation, right?

6:00pm: Dinner time. That spaghetti and pasta is everything. Usually I'd be heading to a PRSSA meeting, but they are only every other Wednesday. I love PRSSA meetings, but it is just nice to catch up on some reading while I'm eating dinner and chatting with roommates.

7:00pm: Now deciding on places to intern this summer. This is when a bit of panic sets in...what in the world am I going to be doing this summer? Should I do what I want to do or do what will be best for my career? What do I want to do with my career? What do I want to do after college? WILL I BE HIRED? OH WOW WHAT IF I don't have a job!? What if I don't love my job!? What if I don't believe in the values of the company that wants to hire me?! What if the company I want to work for doesn't want to hire me!? What if, what if, WHAT IF!?!

This is when I have to remember Philippians 4:6-7 "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Now reading that verse over and over. These what-ifs aren't going to get the best of me today.

8:00pm: More chatting with roommates, more reading, checking things off of my to-do list, doing my weekly chore in our house (this week it is wiping down the counters-not a bad one. Thank goodness I don't have dishes duty this week!) Trying to organize some here and there. This is when I do most of my planning in my planner.

9:00pm: In bed. I may get up and pop some popcorn while I read a couple of chapters in #GirlBoss. It's a good book y'all. I probably play a few games of Trivia Crack here and there too until I fall asleep.

And that's pretty much a day in my shoes!

I hope your Wednesday has been wonderful. We are almost to Friday! We can do it, y'all!!!
