Since it’s been a few months, I thought I’d share another Day In The Life post. This semester is shaping up to be a busy one, so I’m enjoying the lull now before readings, assignments, and midterms start coming at me from all directions. I’m recapping Monday.
I had an interview downtown bright an early at 9 am, so I was up early to get ready for it. After getting dressed, eating breakfast (cereal, Greek yogurt, and an orange), and printing out my resume I checked the traffic (it was pretty bad because we got of snow overnight), so I decided to leave extra early to make sure I got there on time.
I’ve very thankful I left an hour and a half before I had to be there, because I just barely made it. The roads were worse than I was expecting and it was bumper to bumper all the way downtown. Usually it only takes me 35 minutes, so the road conditions were pretty bad. I think the interview went well and I’ll hear back from this sometime this week. The drive back home wasn’t nearly as bad, but the traffic heading downtown was still majorly backed up.
By the time I got home I started making lunch. I roasted up some broccoli and sweet potatoes to go with some homemade chicken tenders. The veggies were pretty simple, I just added some olive oil and cayenne pepper spice to them and then popped them in the oven for about 20 minutes. The chicken tenders ended up taking longer than I was expecting to make, so I didn’t get any reading done that I was hoping to sneak in.
Once I ate and cleaned up from lunch it was time to head out to school for my one and only class of the day. It’s a Special Populations class so we talk a lot about people with disabilities. It’s a really interesting class so far with lots of class discussions which are always interesting. We picked topics to do presentations on, so I went with hearing impairments.
I then headed back home once class was over. I decided to get started researching hearing impairments and exercise, so I got on the library website and started looking. There’s lots of stuff out there on kids and older adults but not a lot on adults, which was kind of disappointing.
I was starting to get hungry so I made dinner – a Thai chicken curry and rice soup and a piece of toasted multi grain bread. I picked the bread up at the farmer’s market over the weekend. Once dinner was done I printed out the journal articles I’d found earlier for my hearing impairment presentation and got started reading them. I was very grateful that they ended up being on the shorter side, because journal articles can be a little dry.
I took a break to watch Teen Mom, a huge guilty pleasure of mine. I keep telling myself I’m not going to watch anymore, but then I see previews for the new season and I can’t stay away. Once the show was over my Fitbit told me to start getting ready for bed, so that’s exactly what I did. It was an early start to the day, so by the time I got into bed I realized how tired I was. I read The Secret Keeper for about 10 minutes before turning off the light.
