Do you have a daily routine? List what it looks like. Are there any areas you could/should change? Weekday (Tu-Sat):
Alarm goes off at 8:55am. Shower, dry, get dressed, grab bag and computer and lunch, get into car. Drive toward work, drive-thru either Dunkin Donuts or McDonald's for breakfast food. Get to work at 10am, park, carry all crap up to desk. Boss greets me with "You're going to hate me, I left you stuff on your desk". Eat breakfast. Spend all day doing stuff. Eat lunch at some point. Listen to internet radio or furtive youtube videos or ipod selections, occasionally listen to audiobooks. Surf the web in idle moments. Read NYT.com
headlines and "most emailed" sections. Field several calls from mother all day regarding the squirrels or the cat or what we're having for dinner. Chat with coworkers, occasionally bicker with coworkers. IM with various friends about nothing much. Leave work, drive home. Make dinner, eat with Mom, clean up after dinner. Park self in front of computer and tv (side-by-side, natch). Watch stuff, surf more stuff. Move cat off keyboard, IM with friends, chat on phone sometimes. TV off around 1am. Surf more or read in bed. Sleep around 2am. If it's a Saturday, meet P after work, see movie/have dinner/do both. Sometimes include Jenn. Weekend (Sunday):
Sleep as late as possible (i.e., as late as cat allows). Read NYT.com
. Read links blogs like metafilter
; fall down link wells. IM with friends about nothing much. Listen to iPod. Drink Diet Coke. Get sick of internet, poke nose outside. If it's cold out, get into bed with cat and book. If it's nice out, go somewhere. Get hungry, eat something sandwich-like around 2pm. Back in bed, or back on 'net. Maybe see friends. Later, make dinner, cleanup. Do laundry? Avoid laundry? TV/net/IM/phone. Maybe run dishwasher. Weekend (Monday):
Chores day. Up around 10:30. Put recycling and returnables in car, make grocery list, consult sales flyers. Grab canvas bags & library books & head out into world. Bank machine, library, city yard, grocery store(s), any other shopping like Target, home, put everything away. Collapse. Get back up, do laundry, clean kitchen, sweep floors, wash bathroom, whatever. Occasionally have appointments like doctor, vet. If it's an alternate Monday, be done by 5pm so can go visit friends. If it's the other Monday, make dinner, clean up. Think about week, pack computer bag, tv/net/IM/phone, bed around 2am. Thoughts:
Too much net. Too few people. Also, no picture taking or other creative pursuits built in to routine. Should change that. Should also eat breakfast at home, but would need to wake up earlier. Probably should shoot for 1am bedtime so get 8hrs sleep regularly.
So what does YOUR routine look like?
