Working in luxury retail, my schedule is extremely unpredictable. No two weeks are the same. I decided to map out my “usual” 9-5 average day, and this is what it looks like.
I usually set my alarm 2 hours in advance (6 a.m.) because I know I snooze for at least the first hour. After my 5 alarms, I get up and drink a cup of water. Then, I go through my Snapchat stories, Insta-stories, mail, messages, Twitter, and anything else that interests me on my phone. When I finally am able to force myself to get up, I brush my teeth and shower. Choosing an outfit usually takes awhile, especially if I have nothing in my closet (first world problems, right?)! Makeup time! Now that my body and my face has come to life, it’s time to wake my mental state up with some caffeine. Now, let’s drive myself to work, so I can open up shop. As I mentioned, I work at a luxury fashion retail company. I’m not going to reveal where or what, for personal reasons, but that icon is a mini clue. What should I eat for lunch? That’s always everyday’s question. It’s finally 5:00, I am free! What should we eat for dinner? After dinner, my friends and I love to go out and unwind with happy hour. Lately, I’ve been ending the night with some nighttime Rio Olympics. What’s your favorite sport to watch? I always enjoy the Gymnastics, Swimming, and Track & Field. I simultaneously work on my next design project (any ideas?). Contacts out, washing my face, and brushing my teeth to get ready for bed. As I get snuggled in, I take out my journal and reminisce about what I did today and what I learned today.
What do you do in a day?
