    Default A Day in the Life of You

    What do you do from beginning to the end in your day?

    I wake up between 6 and 7 and get the kids fed, dressed and off to school. It's usually absolute chaos. Sometimes I drive them, sometimes they take the bus. Then I head off to the gym for 1-2 hours, then its lunch time, nap time and pick up time (we also have a three year old at home who starts school in sept.) Homework, dinner then get ready for bed. I usually spend time in the evenings cleaning up and of course I faf around here throughout all of this. I head to bed around 11 and then it starts all over again. Pretty boring eh? ;P It's actually a lot more hectic than it sounds.
    Time is a delicate mistress.

    I wake up between 1 and 3 pm.
    Then I check internet stuff.
    Then I eat.
    Then I take a shower.
    Then I check internet stuff again.
    Then I leave before my parents get home.

    This is where I go find a friend to do something with, or I hang around at a coffee shop or the library reading or writing.

    Then I go home and waste the rest of the night away on the internet or listening to music unless John isn't offshore. Sometimes I hangout at his place until the wee hours of the night.

    If you concluded that I don't have a job, you're right, and I really need to get one. If you concluded that I don't have a girlfriend, you're right, and I really need to get one.

    Right now, the alarm goes off at 4:30AM. I hit the snooze a few times, then drag my carcass out of bed, throw on a robe or something and go to my computer. I surf for 30 minutes, then realize I need to get my rear in gear. I hook up my iPod to make sure I've got podiobook episodes for the day and let it charge, I start the coffee and put some breakfast in the microwave, then get dressed. If I'm not getting short on time, I go back to my computer with my breakfast and eat, then I brush my teeth, secure my cell, keys, and iPod somewhere on my person and either go pick up my co-worker or wait on the porch for her to pick me up, usually between 5:30 and 5:40.

    We get to work around 6:00AM where I help clean bathrooms, vacuum for a couple hours, then help clean windows and mirrors until 9:00AM.

    We drive home, I eat some cereal with yogurt, then putter around until I feel tired, usually around noon. I sleep for a few hours, putter around, hang out with the kids, make something for supper my husband and the kids, unless they hate what I cooked and make something for themselves.

    After supper, my husband and I go for a 30 minute walk, then he goes to bed. I putter around and surf for awhile, then I take melatonin, pop on my headphones and go to bed.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Hah, then quit picking on me about details. I don't have the time that you have, buddy! :steam:

    My day is nuts from start to finish. A good portion of it is my fault though probably.

    I fly by the seat of my pants throughout my entire day. It's a good thing my job really appreciates that mindset though.

    Wake up between 5-6am, depending on the day. Go to work until roughly 4:30pm. Get off work - check internet, listen to music, watch movies, day dream, eat, shower, sleep.

    Something like that anyways.

    The most "typical" day could be laid out as follows:

    6:30AM - Alarm goes off
    7:00AM - Somehow I get out of bed
    7:00-7:30AM - Either surf the net or do some kind of jogging/elliptical trainer exercise
    7:30-7:45AM - Breakfast, usually. Sometimes I skip this or sometimes I do it 7-730. Surf the internet at the same time.
    7:45-8:10AM - Shower/etc.
    8:10-9:40AM - Drive to work
    9:40-11:00AM - Catch up on email, take care of any immediate problems, catch up on news sites, catch up on this site. Meetings on occasion.
    11:00AM-1:00PM - Combination of work & lunch
    1:00-5:30PM - More work, sometimes very slow (as my body is naturally inclined to become sleepy in the afternoon). There are often afternoon meetings to attend.
    5:30-7:00PM - Drive home
    7:00-9:00PM - Combination of dinner, surfing the internet, and doing whatever else I care about (tonight I hiked the La-Ho trail again after dinner)
    9:00-11:00PM - Surf the internet and/or chill with one of my roommates (who's usually home around then, or coming home)
    ~11:00PM-12:30AM - Go to sleep


    Today (I am "on call" this week FYI, ending tomorrow at 5PM):
    ~10PM yesterday to 3:00AM today - Work on work-related issue from home (a piece of hardware failed and I was running interference with the vendor while they fixed it; lots of phone, email & AIM tag)
    3:00-4:30AM - Sleep
    4:30-5:00AM - Technical Support dude woke me up to look at some false alarm error he was getting paged with. Went back to sleep.
    5:00-7:30AM - Sleep, waking up briefly to cancel the alarm clock
    7:30-8:30AM - Check work email, fix some minor side issue related to the hardware fault earlier, notify my boss I'll be in late, eat breakfast
    8:30-10:00AM - Actually get some sleep!!! (including REM!)
    10:00-11:00AM - Shower, install my new summer windshield/windscreen on my motorcycle, gear up and head out
    11:00AM-12:15PM - Ride to work
    12:15-5:30PM - Do work, or some similar facsimile thereof
    5:30-7:00PM - Ride home
    7:00-7:45PM - Dinner/lounge around on the internet
    7:45-8:45PM - Hike the La-Ho trail
    8:45-9:15PM - Goof around on mbtic reading/posting :-)

    Well, I'm sure by now everyone knows how pathetic I am, so I'll just get this over with:
    • Wake up
    • Urinate
    • Boot up computer
    • Internet
    • Shower
    • Internet
    • Dinner
    • Sleep
    I rarely keep track of the time.
