Laylabean suggested we blog about a day in the life. Here's my Wednesday, October 15, 2008.
4:21 AM - Wake up suddenly, need to use facilities and get a drink.
4:30 AM - Lie awake for the next twenty minutes wondering why in the world I was dreaming about Muppets and suing people and being sent the wrong movies from Netflix. Decide I should probably stop watching lawyer dramedies before bed. Still no reason for the other two.
7:00 AM - Alarm goes off
8:24 AM - I actually get out of bed. Decide that dreaming about Muppets is much more pleasant than dreaming about torture and walks for random causes. Shower, makeup, hair, dress, make lunch.
9:14 AM - Leave for work. Listen to Fall Out Boy and Shakira on the way.
9:40 AM - Arrive at work. Check email, news, some blogs. Start daily IMing with Fran.
10:00 AM - Make Gingerbread Spice tea.
10:15 AM - Start planning my workday.
10:40 AM - Blindsided by a text message. Details not important, but it was unexpected.
11:00 AM - Back to work. Find the checkout forms the teacher accidentally put back in their boxes and sort them.
11:44 AM - This song comes up on Pandora. I fall in love with it again. I find it on YouTube, make it a favorite, and listen to it intermittently throughout the rest of the day. Very fitting. Wish I was that talented on the piano so I could sing it myself.
12:14 AM - Sorted through the music on the east counter. Wrote (in pen!) on some of it and threw even more of it away!
1:06 PM - Eat lunch (turkey sandwich, string cheese, carrots) whilst watching "Buffy, the Vampire Slayer" on Hulu. The carrots taste funny.
1:44 PM - Check mail that was delivered whilst I was eating. Check-in returns.
2:00 PM - Investigate The Golden Key International Honour Society, that I received an invitation to join, by virtue of being in the top 15% of my class.
2:13 PM - Remain officially undecided about joining, but am honored by receiving the invitation to do so. GKIHS is a member of the ACHS, so it seems they are on the up and up.
2:17 PM - In deciding a title for this post, realize I've used a lot of songs from the musical "Rent". Today is no exception.
2:20 PM - Settle in for an afternoon of cataloging.
2:30 PM - Call from sister.
2:35 PM - Download The Second Summer of the Sisterhood audiobook to listen to during cataloging.
3:25 PM - Visit from the same friend as the aforementioned text message. Stressful conversation.
3:30 PM - Orchestra teacher comes to browse the library. Friend leaves.
4:00 PM - Teacher leaves, having checked out some music. Remind myself that next Wednesday won't suck and that some good will come out of me being such a goody two-shoes. Back to cataloging. Or reading blogs that Fran and Eilonwy keep sending me.
4:55 PM - Practice the piano.
5:15 PM - Lock up and head home. Call Mom for daily chat about nothing in particular, but she's on a deadline at work, so it's very short. Try to go to the carwash, but forget (as usual) that it's a left on Maple, not a right. Side street U-turn and discover the place is closed anyway (what is up with that?). Get stuck in traffic I could have avoided if I'd known.
6:15 PM - Arrive at home. Do nothing of any importance.
7:20 PM - Gas up car and spend only $30!! Go to grocery store. Forget why I'm there and buy several things I think I need and a few I know I don't. Forget to buy bread (this was realized today). Pick up dinner at Jerry's Subs & Pizza. Mmmm. Cheesesteak.
8:10 PM - Arrive at home, throw perishables in fridge and make roommates rewind Pushing Daisies (thank you TiVo). Watch whilst eating. Almost choke from laughing so hard.
9:00 PM - Watch Project Runway, accompanied by a bowl of ice cream and talking with the roommates (we don't care about anything but the final collections). Our favorite wins!
10:00 PM - Head upstairs, intending to go to bed. Surf the web, brush teeth, dawdle. Computer is slow, which slows up the process.
11:00 PM - Read scriptures and journal. Apparently I have a lot of thoughts to write down because I'm still journaling when at
12:10 AM - Eilonwy IMs me to look at pictures of her brain. Didn't even know I was still online. Realize I missed an IM from my sister about 30 minutes earlier. Chat with both of them for a few minutes. Finish journaling.
12:30 AM - Lights out. So much for going to bed early.
