Happy Friday everyone! This week has been extremely busy so I am definitely ready for some fun in the not-so-sun (forecast calls for cooler weather in SoCal this weekend, but hey, we can’t complain… it is still winter, isn’t it?) Needless to say, one of the bigger highlights of the week was starting my photography classes. Did I mention how excited I am?? Tomorrow I have my first photoshop class. See… not only will I be able to take your pictures, but I’ll make you look like Kim Kardashian too
It’s no easy task having to juggle work, school, church events, a blog and Laker game night at the local Buffalo Wild Wings (Go Lakers!! Holla!) but I manage, or at least I try. Here is my day broken down:
6:12am-Really annoying alarm ring??! SNOOZZZZZZE!!!
6:20am- I’m up. My morning routine can take anywhere from 25mins-45mins depending on how done up I get (FYI- at 6am my definition of “done up” is a lot more simple than usual).
8:ooam- Work. Okay okay more like 8:06am, but the morning traffic is to blame for this. Clearly- As soon as I step into the office it’s on! Emails galore, hot messes to take care of, spread sheets to update, to-do lists to create, etc…. plenty of coffee is needed for this. 3 cups to be exact.
11: 58am- Lunch. And no, I cannot wait two minutes to leave at 12pm. I’m not sure how it goes in other offices but in ours lunch is an event of its own that involves strategic planning since 8:20 in the morning. No joke. After throwing out our hello’s and good-mornings, the next question is “What’s for lunch?” It’s that serious. This is why I love my job! Obviously.
1:00pm- Back at Work. More emails, more spread sheets, and more hot messes in the lovely world of Project Management (but I can handle it, it’s my job to muti-task & manage... literally.) Have a dance party at my desk to “Benny & the Jets”… yes, I kick it old school. More emails. Chime in on the stories being told around by my coworkers. More spreadsheets. Joke around with everyone. More emails.
5:15pm- Head Home. I’ll use this time loosely because I’ve been known to stay at the office until 7pm. I find I get a lot more done once everyone is gone. I just lost 10 cool points, I know.
6:30pm- Have Dinner. In my car, at home, wherever! I take half an hour to simmer down & chill (and maybe still check work emails on my blackberry. But if my mom asks, no I am not taking care of work during dinner time. SSHHH!!)
7:00pm- School/Ministry. Depending on what day of the week it is, I either have school or some type of ministry work at church to help in. Both are fun, trust me! I am a self-labeled entertainer so it is my duty to make sure all are having a good time with my jokes, random thoughts & overall cray-crayness. You’re welcome.
10:00pm- Hello Bedroom. I love the end of the night when I finally get to relax in my empty room (remember I have yet to unpack anything in my room since moving in over a year ago??) It’s just me, my tv, my laptop & my shoes. This is MY time to catch up on my fave shows (Bravo Channel, your reality shows complete me) holler at my friends on Facebook, etc.
11:00pm- Blog. I write out my blog posts the night before so that I can post them during my break the following morning. I put as much enthusiasm into my writing as possible…. not bad for being so late at night & having been up since
5:45am, 6:05am, 6:12am, 6:20 in the morning right?
So if you have a jammed-packed day, don’t feel bad. You’re in good company!
Have a Fabulous weekend
