Day in My Life

I was thinking last night just as I headed off to bed that my next post would be a day-in-the-life kinda thing. Now, since I was just heading off to bed when I decided this it could be a good idea or a bad one. In any case, I decided, so I'm doing it.

Here is a typical day for me:

  • 7:30am (too damn early) - alarm goes off - NPR on the radio - snooze button is hit
  • 7:39am (9min isn't nearly enough) - alarm goes off, snooze button is hit
  • 7:48am (9min still isn't enough) - alarm goes off, grumbling occurs
  • 7:48-8:05am-ish - turn on ABC for GMA, eat a bowl of cereal, do various "morning" activities, continue grumbling
  • 8:05-8:10am-ish - get dressed, grab stuff for lunch, wallet, keys, etc., lock up and head to parking lot
  • 8:11am-ish - turn key (the car runs better that way), head for the highway
  • 8:30am-ish - arrive at work, put lunch elements in the fridge
  • 8:30-8:45am-ish - greet dad/boss and catch up on things as he waits for his first cup of coffee, still some grumbling
  • 8:45am-ish - turn on computer, check email, weed out the junk
  • 9am-ish - begin to address any issues from email or begin working on first project
  • 9ish-noonish - work on stuff
  • noonish - lunch
  • noon:30ish-4:22pm-ish - work on stuff
  • 4:22pm-4:35pm-ish - say hello to my mom when she gets home from work
  • 4:35-5pm-ish - finish up stuff
  • 5pm-ish - hang out with parents for a few minutes
  • 5-5:30pm-ish - finally head out to the car to head home
  • 5:30-6pm-ish - arrive at home; get mail; remove watch, wallet, keys, belt; turn on computer, check any email that may have come in during the past 20mins since I left work
  • 6-7pm - watch Malcom in the Middle, prepare and eat dinner
  • 7-8pm - watch The West Wing on Bravo, or American Chopper on the Discovery Channel
  • 8-11pm - watch various programs - dependent on daily schedule
  • 11-11:30pm - watch The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on Comedy Central
  • 11:30-midnightish - check email, read blogs, general surfing
  • midnightish - bed, comence grumbling
  • midnight:30ish - finally fall asleep
  • **REPEAT**

Yeah, so that's pretty typical.
