I was looking through my list of blog post ideas, and I saw one that said, “A day in the life” post. I thought that would be a fun post to do! So let’s get started, shall we?
6:00 to 7:00 ~ Early morning writing. I get up at six to do some early morning writing. It’s quiet, and depending on how diligent I am I can get a lot done!
7:00 to 9:00 ~ Chores. I go out and do my outside chores first (I live on a small farm and have animals to feed each morning), and then come in and do my other chores. Inside chores consist of cleaning, laundry, and organization.
9:00 to 11:00 ~ School. I work on school, focusing on math, science, and history. Algebra takes me a while, so I try to get it done first thing! Depending on the module, science can take a while too. Right now I’m working on a 5-page paper on the International Space Station.
11:00 to 12:00 ~ Piano practice. I practice piano for an hour each day. I start with scales and warmups, and then move on to my other music.
12:00 to 1:00 ~ Lunch break. My sister and I often go outside for a while, and we occasionally play games too.
1:00 to 3:30 ~ More school. In the afternoon, I focus on the smaller subjects like art and home economics. Towards the end of the week I have a movie to watch for writing journal, and I like to do that in the afternoon too.
3:30 to 5:00 ~ Running and outside. I try to go running every day, because I’m getting ready for a triathlon in August. My sister and I also jump on the trampoline and work in the flower beds.
5:00 to 6:00 ~ Dinner. I help with making dinner most days, and my sister and I love cleaning up after while listening to for King & Country!
6:00 to 7:00 ~ Various. Depending on the day, I do homework, read, go outside, or spend time with family.
7:00 to 9:00 ~ Writing. I’ve found that I write best at night, so I like to sit on the couch with my laptop and work on various projects. I often sprint with friends on YDubs while doing this too!
9:00 ~ Reading before bed. I always have a tall stack of books in my room to be read. I just went to the library again today, so it is even taller! High priorities are House by Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker, The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall, and Once Upon a Farm by Rory Feek.
What about you? Do you have a typical weekday routine? What have you been reading lately?
