A Day in the Life (Post-Grad Edition)

Oatmeal. Fruit. iPhone. Pinterest. Blogging. Email. Drive. Work. Plan. Create. Write. Do. Relax. Smoothie. Zumba. Blogging. Emails. TV. Netflix. Dreams.

Today I have just a little sneak peek into a day in my life—post-grad edition. I don’t think I’ve ever done a-day-in-the-life post on this blog before, but I am so excited to walk you through my routine and daily schedule. Now that I am working full time, I have put together a pretty consistent routine to make me productive during the day at work and then also enjoy my free time after five. Even though work can make me tired many days, I try to keep myself motivated to do other passion projects and keep up some hobbies. Let’s get a look into what I do each each day!

A Day in my Life

7:00-7:30am: Wake up to three alarms and prepare myself for what’s to come for the day.

7:30am: Check my phone—social media, email, TheSkimm, Bloglovin‘, Youtube, etc. This is a habit I should probably break, but I’ll admit, I’m pretty much addicted to my phone. Let’s be real!

7:45-8:00am: Get up and start getting ready for the day.

8:00am: Make my breakfast of oatmeal, cinnamon, blueberries, raspberries and banana. I schedule social media while I eat breakfast or do other blog tasks or email.

8:30am: Finish getting ready and head to work!

9:00-5:00pm: Work! In the mornings, I usually head to our cute little office space, check emails and create my to-do list. Everyday is different, so I may have meetings with schools, my boss, businesses, teachers or other volunteers. Some days, I’m at my desk for most of the time, drafting marketing materials, planning our 5k fundraiser, applying for grants and doing other admin work. Some weeks, I’ve worked at a summer camp in the morning, so that was a fun way to work with kids outside the office. I usually bring lunch to eat as I work or take it outside and people watch in a little courtyard area with picnic tables. I usually end my day at 5pm and head back home!

5:30pm: Unwind from work and talk with my family. I check my phone and other non-work emails, and plan dinner.

6:30pm: I make dinner and eat! Some of my favorites have been vegetable pasta, vegan Hawaiian pizza, burrito bowls, and veggie fajitas.

7:00pm: Relax, work on blog posts or freelance work. I sometimes do yoga or go to a Zumba class. A lot of times, I also ride bikes with my mom after work too. But as August is looking like a really busy month, I’ve been trying to get a lot of work done in the evenings.

9:00pm: Shower and get ready for bed or participate in a Twitter chat.

10:00pm: Watch a TV show or something on Netflix for a little while. Lately, I’ve been watching a lot of ABC family.

11:00pm: Read, write or go on my phone before falling asleep by 12.

And that’s my day!

What is your day like? I would love to know your favorite part of your day, whether you are a breakfast person or a night owl!
