A Day in MY LIFE…somedays…

This is a representation of my daily life and may not match up exactly to fellow single twenty somethings…but for fun….here is a day in my life…

Morning…

I have 13 alarms set for a workday. They start at 4:45am and go all the way up to 7:30am. I normally wake up by the fifth alarm, but for some reason I feel the need to set the other 8 ‘just in case’. Although I can see that there are new blog updates, text messages, online dating messages, etc on my phone…I don’t read them right away. I go and take a shower first to wake up. It isn’t until I finish showering and start blow drying my hair that I finally go through my phone. I do a skim first and read over everything that is new for the day. I don’t actually respond until my first cup of coffee is fully consumed. When I am finished getting ready and have ate something for breakfast (recently it’s been chocolate pudding) I head to work. I work a normal schedule of 8-5, Monday through Friday. Nothing exciting typically happens during this time, just normal work stuff.

Early Evening…

When I get off of work at 5pm, I battle traffic to make it back to my apartment. The second I walk in to my apartment, I strip off all my work clothing and replace it with something comfy. Then I need to determine what I will spend my evening doing. Most days I will run over to the grocery store, snag a bottle of wine and a random frozen food. I don’t do ‘big shopping trips’ that I feed off of all week. As I mentioned in my post about single life and food servings, it’s hard as one person to not be wasteful with food.

When I get to the grocery store, I determine whether or not I will carry the annoying basket, push the mini cart, or brave it alone with nothing. This always reminds me of the old computer game The Oregon Trail. In the game, you would come upon a river and were given three options to cross it 1) Attempt to Ford the River (Carry All Groceries), 2) Caulk Wagon and Float it Across (Basket), and 3) Take a Ferry Across (Cart). If you choose to attempt to ford the river, you end up regretting it and losing some groceries along the way!

I get home from the grocery store and eat all the food I just purchased. By then it is around 7pm, which I have determined is an acceptable time to begin drinking wine. I pour my first glass and settle on my couch. Then this happens…

One Glass…

Start playing with phone and looking through messages and send a few friendly messages for company.

Two Glasses…

Out of the five or so people you initially started talking to during the first glass, you pick one that you will continue to talk to…

Three Glasses…

Hello ex-boyfriend/ex-fling/ex-crush my phone has decided we shall chat. And you don’t even have to respond, because by the fourth glass I will be talking to myself through our text conversation.

Morning Part Two…

Look at phone…pray your ex-boyfriend/ex-fling/ex-crush changed their number and never saw that side of you. VOW to never message them again (although that’s a lie). Try to come up with a clever reason for pouring your heart out the night before… Send message explaining self… “Wine texted you, not me.”…

Early Evening Part Two…

Receive text message from random guy who thinks he is buying you dinner. Crap…you forgot you promised him somewhere around the second glass that you would meet…Come up with clever excuse or just go on the date anyway…

Lather…Rinse…Repeat

In Conclusion…

Not every day goes like this, but it isn’t completely uncommon for me to have a day like this. What are some things you find yourself doing as a single person? Is there anything we have in common? Please share your stories! I love to read about them! Please follow me, if you’re not already, in order to get updates on when new posts are up! I’m planning something fun for tomorrow so please stay tuned! 🙂 Thank you and happy soul searching! xoxo
