I’m still new to my job, and will be considered new for quite a while….but I thought I’d share a little of what my routine looks like these days!
6:00 am – Alarm goes off! Wake up, take a shower, eat breakfast. Possibly blowdry/straighten hair. The first week I straightened my hair and wore makeup each day, and then I stopped. While I like doing all the beauty stuff every now and then, its not fun when it’s every day. Breakfast is usually trader joe’s cold brew, with peanut butter toast, or yogurt and granola.
7:20 am – Drive to Work! I could maybe leave at 7:30, but if there is an accident or traffic I would cut it super close, so for now I just enjoy getting to work a few minutes early.
8 am – noon: Classroom time! I know this will change, but we typically go over what we finished with the day before, and then start to learn a new aspect of the job.
Noon – 1 pm: Lunch break! I typically pack a lunch, eat it quick, then go for a short walk around the buildings. There is a nice path down the road, but then I wouldn’t have time to eat. (also, I’m not a food blogger, hence my super basic photo)
1 pm – 5 pm: More Classroom time! If we’ve learned a new skill in the morning we practice that, otherwise we’re probably learning something new in the afternoon.
5 pm – 7 pm: Workout! Or Walk…or Errands. I don’t want to workout from 5 am to 6 am, so for now I’m trying to do it before I go home for the night. Right now I’m referring to “home” as my grandparents house. I also want to make sure I’m eating dinner with them, and spending some quality time together. They are huge Twins’ Baseball fans, so we are watching a lot of games.
This night’s dinner was pork tenderloin, rice, green beans, and a healthy serving of sriracha. It’s been so wonderful spending time with my grandparents, and less stressful than attempting to figure out my living situation immediately. I do have a studio apartment secured, and I think I’ll be actually staying there by mid-October.
How quickly have you moved from one place to the next? Same day? Over the course of a weekend? Or over the course of a month like I am? (which seems unlikely, but if you’ve done it, tell me about it!)
