{Another} Day in the Life

Here’s a day in the life with me on a random Tuesday (so yesterday) in good ol’ Wisconsin where we jump up and down when the weather is above freezing. At least that’s what I’m currently doing. Okay, here we go.

5:57 a.m. Throw a pillow at my door that my cat is already scratching at. I feel like I just went to bed (technically I did … at 1 a.m.) and WHY IS IT DARK OUT?! #ScrewYouDaylightSavings

6:05 a.m. Okay, I’m obviously not going to fall back asleep until my alarm goes off at 6:30. Ugh. Instagram time.

6:25 a.m. – 7:30 a.m. Get up, feed the damn cat who acts like it’s the first time he’s EVER EATEN, curl hair, get dressed (i.e. try on 15 different shirts until I find one that works with my new skirt), do make-up, make breakfast, take selfie because I like my outfit, pack up breakfast and trip over the cat on my way out the door.


Top is from Old Navy (last year). Skirt is from SheInside that I found on Stylish Petite’s blog. Necklace is Maurices. Cheesey smile is ALL ME.

7:30 – 8 a.m. Drive to Dunkin Donuts (this is the fourth day in a row getting a cookie dough iced coffee and I’m not sorry about it), drive to work, text Saige about Weight Watchers stuff and talk to a coworker for a bit before starting the day. Oh, and post shameless aforementioned selfie to Instagram.


I drank my coffee in about 15 seconds flat this morning, so I’m recycling this photo … you get the point.

8 a.m. – 10 a.m. Work, Work, Work. I couldn’t figure out if I needed my space heater or not so I spent most of the morning have an on-and-off relationship with it. When it’s off, I’m freezing. When it’s on, I’m hot.


I have a calendar addiction. Seriously. Desk calendar, Erin Condren calendar and two Google calendars (let’s forget about the dry erase calendar I have at home).

5 minute break … Take quick break to check online dating messages that keep lighting up my phone. My reaction to most of them? Nope, nope, nope, NO I WILL NOT MARRY YOU, WHO ASKS THAT IN A FIRST MESSAGE?! Eat breakfast while deleting creepy messages. Contemplate deleting online dating apps because I hate it. Talk friend into emailing guy she likes. She tries to talk me into giving my phone number to guy I like. I laugh hysterically at her because I’m a Class A Hypocrite.

10 a.m. – Noon Work, Work, Work. Secure event locations for regional events I’m doing in September. Get really excited because that reminds me that I go to IRELAND in September!! Continue to drink ALL THE CAFFEINE, yet my annoying eye twitch reminds me that I’m gonna crash at some point.

 Noon – 1 p.m. Lunch with my friend/colleague Brooke over at the cafe on campus. I can’t eat there very often because I go a little overboard with buffets, but I get three free meals a semester, so I’m using them up. Plus, I wanted to spend some time out of the office with Brooke! I didn’t take a picture, so just imagine me “enjoying” a salad and a cup of our chef’s homemade chili. Yum!

1 p.m. –  3 p.m. Continue to deal with this crazy annoying eye twitch and now – a headache! Woooooo. Sleep deprivation has set in. Get sad that no one is commenting on my blog post on Tuesday – maybe no one else loves music like I do! Contemplate going home, eating and then working out tonight but assume that’ll never happen once my butt hits that couch. Wonder what the hell I spilled on my shirt that won’t come out. I seriously have a stain or a rip in all of my clothes. I should probably go shopping. Debate giving a boy my number even though he’s clearly not asked for it, but I’m sick of Tinder so I kind of just want to delete the app. Make some Spark. Helllllp me, Spark!


Oh yeah, and I respond to emails, do other event planning stuffs, talk to coworkers … you know, actually work besides just letting my mind wander. It was a rough afternoon for me.

As you can tell from my ramblings above, this is me all. the. time.

3 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. Plug in the headphones to try to focus (see below). Love my colleague, but my brain hurts and I’m trying to get some stuff done. Tear through office to find ibuprofen (can’t find any). Try to explain a situation to someone that obviously didn’t listen to anything I told them. Hurts the head more. Look through files from previous person in the position to try to think up new events.



4:30 pm YAY! Time to go home! Decide it’s beautiful out and I change into workout gear and hit the trail for a walk.

5-6:20 p.m. Take a lonnnnnng power walk on the trail. It feels so great and I burned 500 calories! Run to the grocery store to buy food that will negate all of the good things I just did for my body.

7 p.m. Eat A LOT of chip and salsa and edamame while watching The Bachelor on Hulu Plus (even though I accidentally found out who won weeks ago). Text/Tinder/Facebook chat all the fun people. Don’t move off the couch unless absolutely necessary


10 p.m. – 12 a.m. Shower and then bed! Think about ALL the things and don’t fall asleep until after midnight.

So that was my random Tuesday!

What is your favorite thing to eat for dinner? I’ve been on an edamame kick lately – they keep me full.
Anyone else like me and can’t stop won’t stop eating chips and salsa until the entire jar is gone and your stomach is a sodium balloon? Just me?

    it’s sooo nice in wisconsin right now! i’m driving 45 minutes out of my way this weekend just so i can get my first (oh what will be MANY) cookie dough DD coffee of the year.

    i’m like that with chips + guac. it’s a dangerous combo which is why i never keep guac around anymore 😉

    • Jessie says:

      Guac is amazing, too! There’s a specific salsa that I’ll take down an entire jar in one sitting and I usually keep it out of the house, but I still bought it last night at the grocery store! Ah, oh well. The cookie dough iced coffee is definitely worth the trip! 🙂

    I love these kind of posts also! What exactly do you do for work (if you can say)? I always have to have headphones in at work because the people around me drive me bonkers! I love chips & salsa but I can eat entire jar of the Tostito’s cheesy bean dip in one sitting… sooooo bad.
