I love reading other blogger’s “day in the life” posts for a quick glimpse into, well, the life behind the blog. We’re all nosy, right?
Here is a typical Tuesday for me…including my meals of course. My Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s are the busiest days so next time I’ll switch it up.

6:52 a.m. (yes exactly)- Wake up without an alarm. This is the latest I’ve slept in without an alarm in a long time. Sad truth.
7 a.m. – Scroll through social media and watch the opening of the Today Show. I’m convinced I have an internal alarm clock that wakes me up right before the Today Show starts.
7:15 a.m. – Make and eat breakfast (the usual two bowls of oatmeal, peanut butter and fruit). Read some blogs while eating.
8:00 a.m. – Finish up my sports law reading for class. As much as I love sports, I just can’t get into the “law” aspect.
8:30 a.m. – Pack lunch/snacks/bags and make myself look somewhat decent. Keyword: somewhat.
9:00 a.m. – Leave for campus
9:30 a.m.- 1:45 p.m. – Class. Fun stuff. First it’s sports law, then communication law, followed by a review-writing class. For that class our assignments are reviews of movies, books, TV shows, restaurants, plays, etc. Actually sitting in class is kind of pointless because all of our learning/work is done outside the classroom.
**12:15 – 12:30 p.m. (in between class)**– Eat lunch, finally. As you can see from my Target plastic bag lunchbox, I’m very fancy. Today I had a salad with walnuts, deli turkey, tomatoes and (hidden) avocado with balsamic vinegar. Carrots on the side.
2 – 4 p.m. – Work. While at work I ate a KIND bar and tried a new-to-me gluten-free cookie (unintentional rhyme). The cookies were stale/cardboard like but it could be because someone left the box open. I can’t fairly rate them yet.
4 – 5 p.m. – I contemplated running but decided I’d rather walk while talking to my mom and sister. I caught up with them while walking around campus. My legs are so stiff after sitting all day so walking felt good.
5:15 p.m. – Arrive back to my apartment and start homework.
6:00 p.m. – Dinner! On Monday I made dinner to (hopefully) last me three meals. I had zucchini noodles with sautéed chicken, tomato sauce, spinach, broccoli and 1/2 avocado. Delicious… I went back for seconds.
6:20 p.m. – Quickly catch up with my dad on his way home from work. Today was the first time in a while I spoke to my entire family. Yes, I even said hi to my dog. I text them 24/7 but talking on the phone is so much better.
6: 30 p.m. – Begin typing this post.
6: 45 – 8: 15 p.m. – Homework, homework, homework. The usual.
8:15 p.m. – Eat an apple with peanut butter. I’ve been branching out with my nut butters and am currently loving plain ol’ Smucker’s. I actually bought two jars – one to refrigerate and one to keep in the pantry. Thank goodness because one will be gone tomorrow…lasted me less than a week.
8:30 p.m. – Read some blogs, answer some emails.
9:15 p.m. – Finish up this post and finalize my spin playlist for class.
9:45 p.m. – Hop in bed and watch last night’s Jimmy Fallon. I TiVo Fallon every night and watch it the following day. 11:30 is just way too late for me. I’m guessing I’ll fall asleep 30 minutes into the show, but I’ll be sure to update you in the morning….
