This week I’m going to talk a little more about my daily cycle before/after/during school, and really overall what I go through day to day.
Mornings! I myself am your typical I-hate-Mondays type of girl, and the same goes for those excruciating mornings getting up day to day. Typically I find myself dragging myself out of bed (if it isn’t someone else doing it for me). My week is split into 2 days evening classes, 3 days 8am classes. The back to back 8am classes are brutal, and often the days I find myself staying up later to finish homework. A typical 8am day I would find myself getting up at 5:30am, showering, then hustling to catch a 6:30 bus. The bus I take is the second bus of the day, so I typically find myself fighting to get a place on it, and I’m sure a lot of you have been there too. The bus ride is typically a 30-40 min ride, and I normally find myself arriving around 7:20. If I’m not in the timmies early morning, you’ll likely find me sketching near my class to wake myself up, which is really what wakes me up for the day.
Next, we have my time at school, which often takes up most of my day if I’m not working or doing homework. My time spent at school is typically on the second floor C wing (Doon). About 90% of my classes are held in one specific room, so I generally keep close to home there in between my classes, or have lunch in the Venue. During any 2 hour gaps between my classes its Venue time! I enjoy taking out my sketchbook and working on class thumbnails in there, as most of the campus space is typically bustled with people.
Evenings! Are typically filled with the brisk cold air that winter promises. As the days are currently shorter, walking home is veryyy dark. When I’ve reached home I almost always head to homework, or some me time. If it’s me time, I’m normally on discord with friends, playing games, watching shows, or of course drawing. If it isn’t that, it’s homework! Homework for me is typically me just binging on assignments, which I typically do in one go. I’ve found I generally work best putting all my effort into a project without taking breaks between days, so these evenings can be pretty stressful, but overall productive. If I manage to have my work done or get ahead, I typically go out with friends for the evening, and enjoy the night!
For the most part, my life may come off as very bland, but I find myself always looking for something to do to stay busy (otherwise I’ll get bored). So here’s to the next few weeks, working my butt off!
