Hello lovers and Happy Friday! As you read this I will be boarding a plane headed to Blend Retreat!! I still can’t believe I won the giveaway and am headed to Park City, Utah to meet some of the most amazing and inspiring bloggers I read on a daily basis. I am SO incredibly excited and nervous- what if they don’t like me? What if I don’t make any friends? I know it sounds silly, but I am super anxious to make a good impression while still being my quirky self. And of course I hope to learn a lot, network and make a ton of new amazing friends, and enjoy the whole retreat in Park City!
Since today will not be my typical work Friday, I wanted to share with you a day in my life- what I do from breakfast to bedtime. Especially since I am not able to be online as much to comment on blogs (thanks government job), I thought you’d like to see what I do everyday! Warning- it’s not very thrilling!
5:47am Alarm goes off. Annoying intro to DC101 plays. Instantly get out of bed to turn that crap off. (DC area friends you know what I’m talking about).
5:50am Feel like this:
6:00am Quickly make something of my super-fine/thin hair. Try to impress coworkers with makeup skills.
6:06am Realize I have no makeup skills. Feel like Jenna Marbles doing the drunk makeup tutorial. Except I am sober.
End up doing normal makeup routine.
6:15am Finish the ‘do and face. Get dressed.
6:17am Forget deodorant. Rush to put on.
6:19am Ensure I have everything packed- badge, lunch, phone, book.
6:20am Head out to catch metrobus.
6:21am Realize forgot part of my lunch. Run back to apartment, snag said item, rush back out to catch bus.
6:25am Wait for metrobus. Read Twitter feed. Check emails.
6:30am Grumble that metorbus is late. Again. If I can be on time every morning, why cant the bus?
6:32am Board bus.
6:45am Arrive at bus station. Catch metro into DC.
6:58am Arrive at DC metro station. Contemplate spending exorbitant amounts of money for a bucks coffee.
6:58am Decide I love foamy caps. Must have foam.
7:01am Arrive at bucks. Order new fav coffee- tall skim cap, dry.
7:03am Obtain foamy cap. Enjoy the warmth of the cup in hand and head to the office.
7:04am Try not to slosh coffee and deflate foamy goodness.
7:07am Arrive at office. Bid adieu to my cell (and outside world) for next 4-5 hours.
7:10am Turn on computers. Work.
10:00am-ish Take break. Eat packed snack. Wonder if I can squeeze in a nap after work.
12noon-ish Take lunch break- but go outside and walk around. Contemplate making a run for it. Think better when I remember the student loans I have…
12:45-3:30pm Work some more and finally head home.
3:30pm-4:30pm Commute home via metro and metro bus.
4:30pm-5:30pm Rest, change clothes (if going to Crossfit).
5:30pm-6:30pm Crossfit (or veg on the couch).
7:00pm-8:00pm Shower, eat, prep breakfast/lunch for the next day. Chat with bf.
8:00pm-9:30pm Watch tv, attempt to blog, catch up on other blogs.
9:30pm-10:00pm Get ready for bed.
10:00-10:30pm Stay up late reading twitter/blogs on iPhone. Try to fall asleep.
10:45pm Curse insomnia.
11:15pm Hopefully fall asleep.
Welp, not too exciting, huh?
No worries- tomorrow will be AWESOME!!
I should probably go finish packing…and get to sleep as I have to wake up at 4:00am. Pray for me.
Have a fabulous Friday and great weekend!! Can’t wait to share everything from Blend!!
