One of my favorite kind of posts to read are Day in my Life. I love seeing how people balance school, a social life, blogging, and involvement because it can get pretty overwhelming at times. It always interests me to see how people manage their time when they are that busy, so I thought it might be fun to share with you how I manage my time. While my summers are much different than during the school year, I am still very busy. I am balancing two online courses, a part-time job, blogging, working out, and am involved in a local girls group.
6:30- My alarm chirps at exactly 6:30 every morning and I’ve never been a person to hit the snooze button. I get out of bed and immediately begin my morning routine by washing my face, brushing my teeth, getting dressed and doing my hair and make-up. And making coffee, coffee is a must.
7:35- I head out the door and am on my way to tutoring. I mentioned that I’m taking two online summer classes and one of those classes is business calculus. I could never comprehend calculus just through watching online lectures, so having a tutor to explain things has helped a lot.
8:00- I’m at my tutors and working on math homework. I work with a tutor for about an hour on any questions I have on my homework. Since I’m doing a 16 week math class in only 8 weeks, I typically do a lesson every week day and one lesson on the weekends, so it definitely gets overwhelming at times.
9:30- Once I’m home from tutoring I start in on any chores that I need to do around the house along with tidying my room.
10:00- By now I’ve settled down at my desk and am diving into my school work for the day. I’m taking business calculus and macroeconomics this summer, so I typically start by finishing my math assignment for the day and then watching the lecture for the next day’s assignment and taking notes. In my econ class I work on my forum replies, reading assignments, work-out problems, and my research paper.
12:00- If I’m not heading into work from 12-6, I’m taking a lunch break and updating social media accounts for my blog.
12:30- I have a lot of school work to do every day, so I spend the majority of my morning and early afternoon getting all of my assignments down for the day.
2:00- Another break from school to make a cup of coffee and to work on blog posts. Since the light outside at this point is so nice, I also take the majority of my photos at this point.
3:00- Wrap up school work. I have to do several forum responses to other students during the week and typically they reply later in the day, so this is the time that I’m replying to them
4:30- Get ready and head out to the gym. I love going to spin, tabata, piyo, and turbokick classes because I love the group setting, but sometimes I also run, lift weights, or do an ab routine.
6:30- I get back from the gym and eat dinner with my parents and brother. I typically have stories from the day about how I feel one of my professors doesn’t like me because of the fact he doesn’t reply to my forum posts, that I wish I had forum replies as amazing as one of the girls in my macro class, and that the boy that pointed out a spelling error in my forum post made a spelling error himself in correcting me. And yes, these are my online classmates and professors that I’m talking about.
7:00- I work on writing posts and editing pictures during this time and sometimes will do a little bit of editing on my research paper for macro and study for an upcoming test in calculus. I also enjoy hanging out with friends or shopping with my mom for my apartment this fall.
10:30- I’m a grandma during the summer and typically head to bed during this time. I typically sit in bed and read a few blogs and catch up on my YouTube subscription feed before finally calling it a night. It’s typically about 11:30 or 12 before I get to bed.
What’s your daily summer routine like? Is it much different from your routine during the school year? I would love to hear about it in the comments below.
