Day in the Life: My New Chicago Life

Hey friends! I thought it’d be fun to do an updated “Day in the Life” post since my life is quite different these days.

5:15 a.m.: Alarm goes off, I crankily turn it off and snuggle up to my space heater (AKA Ben). He’s feeling extra warm this morning (foreshadowing …)

5:20 a.m.: OKAY GET UP.

5:40 a.m.: Leave for the gym, thankfully I was smart and packed everything the night before. Get gas on my way to work.

6:30 a.m.: Start workout. I did lower body and was feeling kinda weak, but it worked out.

7:30 a.m.: Shower, get ready, talk with girls in locker room (BE MY FRIEND PLZ) and get to work.

8:30 a.m.: Talk with coworkers, meet with my boss to complain about the Packer game (grrrrr) and then back at it.

9:30 a.m. – 12 p.m.: Answer emails, online training, all the work stuffs.

12 – 1 p.m.: Lunch with Matt, my designer for my client. He’s been out the past week, so I’m trying to get to know my team.

1 – 2 p.m.: Work, work, work, work, work, work (aka answer emails, talk with coworkers, online training, stare at the wall … my job is still building up so I’m still kind of slow)

2 – 3 p.m.: Staff Meeting

3 – 5 p.m.: Work, work, work, work, work, work.Β Ben texts me that he’s sick … I get super worried *eyeroll* Is this what it’s like to be in love? Worry about the other person all the time? My stomach was in knots and it’s just an effing cold. HA!

5 p.m.: LeaveΒ at 5 on the dot. Head over to Target to pick up stuff for Ben, then to Chipotle for food for me.

6:15 p.m.: Arrive in Chicago, realize I *may* have over done it with the stuff I got for Ben …

There was also a t-shirt and a few other things not pictured haha.

7-11 p.m.: Netflix and chill … quite literally. Watched a few episodes of Dexter, then Parks & Rec. Get mad at Ben because he won’t kiss me because he doesn’t want to get me sick. Not So Silently pout.

12 a.m.: Sleeeeeps.

      They’re realllllly good! Ben and I met on social media and I remember he used to post how much he loved those on Snapchat, so I had to grab them for a sick day treat. πŸ™‚
