Today I wanted to officially document what I do on a normal school day, starting from the moment my alarm clock rings to the second I get into bed at night. Now that school is over, I can sort of average out my school days and write about my general routine. Let's start!
First, I wake up at 7:10 to the lovely ringing of my alarm clock. Ahh, what a great way to start my day. I give myself 2 minutes to quickly check my email and my snapchat, and then I start getting ready for the long, long day ahead of me.
I brush my teeth, put in my contacts, get dressed, and put my hair in my classic ponytail. This takes me about 12 minutes. I don't wear makeup or anything so it doesn't take me very long at all to get ready. Afterwards, I'll go downstairs, and my mom usually cooks breakfast, so I eat whatever she's prepared. Usually it's leftover rice or noodles, but sometimes she'll toast some Eggo waffles (my favorite is the cinnamon one!) and grill some sausage patties. She makes breakfast and packs lunch for both me and my brother. It takes me 5-10 minutes to eat. After eating, I bring out my vitamins. I consume gummy vitamins everyday, which include vitamin A and D. I pop them in my mouth, put my lunch and water bottle into my backpack, and head out to school. Again, my mom drops us off.
Here were my classes in order: AP French, Digital Imaging, Precalc, Honors English, -lunch- , US History, and AP Biology. Out of all of these, my favorite one was definitely Digital Imaging because I love graphic design. Out of the 5 academic courses, I prefered biology. I find biology so fascinating and I loved my teacher. Plus, it doesn't hurt that biology comes naturally for me. I had a strong A in the class. The worst class for me is always math, so of course, this year, I absolutely LOATHED precalc. I ended up with a borderline A in the class, only because my teacher decided to boost everyone's grade up last minute. If that hadn't happened, I would have been stuck with a B.
After school ends at 3:00, I go home and make myself a snack. Chips are probably my all-time favorite thing to eat after a long day. I rarely grab something sweet to munch on because I'm definitely more of a savory-over-sweet kind of person. We also always have juice or soda in the fridge and I grab one of those as well. Sometimes, my mom buys boba for us so when she does, I have that instead of my usual beverage choices.
I eat and relax for about half an hour before I get started on my homework. On average, I've had about 3 hours of homework each day from Monday to Thursday. I have about 5 hours of total work each weekend, and I divide that up through Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I like to start with the easy stuff first, and that's usually history. I save english homework for last because it's usually the most challenging. The homework for that class is usually analysis work, and I'm not the best at it.
I like to take breaks after each subject. Around 7:00, I'll go take a shower until 7:15, and I usually eat dinner around 8:30, so after my shower I'll either continue with my homework, or if I'm done I'll watch some YouTube videos. I watch an episode of The Amazing World of Gumball and an episode of Sailor Moon. I go downstairs, have dinner until 9:30, and then I have another hour before I get ready for bed. In this hour, I'll continue studying for any tests / quizzes I might have the next day, or I'll read a book. I'm currently reading The Mark of Athena.
At 10:30, I pack up my backpack and start getting ready for bed. Now, the latest I let myself sleep at is 11:30. If I'm not done studying by then, I will stop, because sleep is more important to me. I brush my teeth and change into some comfy pajamas, and I give myself 15 minutes just lying on the bed going through my social media once again. At 11:00, it's lights out for me. I get some much needed sleep for the next day.
That right there was a documentation of an average day in my life. Now, it's summer, so obviously my day looks quite different. Anyways, hope you all enjoyed this post!
