I have no idea why I started documenting my day last Wednesday. Maybe I was bored, maybe I was proud of the fact that I made it to work on time, maybe I thought people were tired of seeing my life via photos on snapchat and instagram. But for whatever reason I got to work and wrote down my morning. In the end I decided to post it because I’m nosy and I love reading posts like this. So now the secrets out- daily life can even be boring here in beautiful south Florida.
5:30 am- My alarm went off and I obviously snoozed it.
5:50- Another alarm went off so I turned all future alarms off and decided to catch up on social media.
6 am- I have not yet realized the time so instead of getting in the shower I watched this video (an honest look at what it’s like to be a black male) and cried
6:20- Andddd I finally realized that I’m running late so I hopped in the shower and desperately tried to do my hair
7 am- Unhappy with my choices, I ran out of the house coffee-less and a little frantic with my hair looking like a hot mess.
7:10- S**t. I need gas.
7:50- Some how I arrived early to work so I stopped and got coffee…. it was around this time that I opened my car window and got hit with wind that smelled like bad breath. How does that even happen?
8 am- While walking into work I decided that I was going to write this post so I tried taking the above hair photo so I’d have something to show.
8:30- Sitting at my desk, I was pretty proud that I got so much done that morning after starting my day late I decided to post about it on Instagram.
11 am – Work, work work. Is it lunch time yet?
1 pm- LUNCHHHH!
2 pm- Back at my desk I realized that I just ate 3 tacos, a side of queso & chips, and 2 mini cupcakes. I decided to warn Dean about my decision and made plans to hit the gym for the first time in forever.
3:10 – I ate another cupcake.
5 pm- Work is officially over for the day! I walk to the wrong parking lot (rookie mistake) and eventually make it to my car. Now which podcast to listen to….I decide on Breakfast for Dinner.
6:15- Finally made it home. Even though I told Dean that I’d be getting changed and meeting him right away, I ended up taking pictures for Instagram. In my defense, the lighting was PERFECT and I purchased fresh flowers yesterday.
6:30- Changed for the gym and took more pictures for documentation purposes.
6:50- Also took pictures for snapchat purposes. I feel like my outfit and hair makes me look more prepared for the gym than I actually feel.
7:15- So I’m at the gym and I spotted Dean. He’s with a client but he kind of says hello.. and then puts his fist up for a pound. That was weird and I let him know.
7:17- The cardio machines have TV’s! I love this because I strangely like watching Jeopardy while I run so I decided to stay on for at least a half hour.
7: 37- I regret my decision but I stay on the treadmill because I’m stubborn and Dean keeps looking over.
7:47- And I’m done!.. that was enough time, right? Now what?
7:50- I don’t think I can keep walking around without attracting attention. I decide on an arm workout and make my way over to some machines.
7:55- Why is that guy sitting on a machine talking on the phone? Come on, man! Isn’t it obvious that I decided on an arm workout?!
7:57-… He definitely has no idea I’m waiting for this machine, but I’m just going to get water until he decides to leave.
8:11- My workout is complete and I’m back in my car. I second guess my decision to come to the gym because my arms hurt opening my car door.
8:12- I document my feelings via snapchat because I feel like this matters.
8:42- Get home, eat food, feed the dog, shower, pick out clothes for tomorrow.
9:15- How did I get all of that done in a half hour!? I decide to celebrate my successes by falling asleep on the couch while Dean went on a Freaks and Geeks marathon.
The rest of my night isn’t clear, but I’m sure I was sleeping in bed by 10:30. I remember when that would be something embarrassing to admit, but now it seems like a positive thing. #OldLady
So now it’s your turn! What does your day look like?
