I have routines for a while but then I need to change them.
Like for the last month I've left the house at 8.10, brought apple turnovers from sainbury's then arrived at school at 8.55.
Before I left at 8 and got donoughts from gregs every morning then got to school at 8.00.
Then before i got in late at 9 or 9.05 every morning without food.
I need to change it every month or two.
I make little changes to the walk home as well like going down a path slightly longer at times. Or running certain parts. I'm not sure why I do it but I do.

"Is it not enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe there are fairys at the bottom of it too"
"Intelligence is being able to hold too opposing views in the mind at the one time without going crazy" - Now all I need to figure out is if I'm intelligent or crazy!
My mornings are somewhat structured in the sense that they start the same way every day. I always wake up at a certain time that I set the night before (depends on how much work I've procrastinated that needs to be made up that mroning), and then head immediately for the shower. I do all the morning bathroom routines in a specific order also.
I then need at least 30-45 minutes of zoning out while listening to music, or my day feels horrible. I'm not quite sure why, I think it's because it helps me clear my head before I head out.
Aside from that, I have absolutely no routine.
The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:
P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7
P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......
about the only routines I fall into easily are to do with sleep/wake times.
When I'm at home, I find it virtually impossible to get out of a routine that verges on the nocturnal - bed no earlier than 2 or 3am, quite often 4+, get up around midday. It frustrates the fuck outta me cos I know I'm sleeping away half my days and by the time I'm awake and have eaten and got my shit together, daylight's fading and everything's closing (in this one horse town lol).
However, take me anywhere else - staying at someone else's house, going on vacation, anything like that - and I seem to very quickly get into a routine of going to bed around 9pm, reading til 10 or 11, then getting up around 7am. And I always aim to keep that going when I get home, but two days in the front door back home and it's back to the nocturnal stuff.

I'm terrible with routine imposed from outside (getting to work regularly for 9 am would be impossible for me).
I do have some self selected routines, but those tend to fall as often on the negative side (I browse blogs when I get up instead of immediately taking a shower etc) as on the positive (I always check my keys are in pocket before closing door).
Then again, I do have ADHD (professional diagnosis) .
