You guys. Have I ever told you that "Day in the Life" posts are my FAVORITE?? Also, did you know that Autumn (the blogger, not the season) is also my FAVORITE??? She agreed to do a day in the life blog post for me and I'm dead. Go give her some love on her blog once you read this!! She graciously allowed me to write a guest post for her as well, which you can read here.

Hey guys! It’s Autumn from the blog Autumn’s Readings & Writings, and I’m super stoked to be here today guest posting on Sophia’s amazing blog. “Day in the Life” posts are one of my favorites, because it’s so cool to see what other people do every day in their lives.   For me, every day is different. There’s no such thing in my life as a “normal day.” I’ll be happily living the life and then BAM! something happens and I’m like wait what? So the day I mapped out here is one of the days where I felt like life actually made sense because…usually I’m like scratching my head at nine in the evening wondering what I did all day.  #realtalk

So anyways, let’s go!

5:45 A.M. – Alright, so this is when I usually get up.  It’s pretty early (correction: wayyyy too early.), but I’ve got up at this time for so long I’ve gotten used to it.  This is why when I tell people that for me 8:00 is like sleeping in; they’re just like WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU, WOMAN.
6:30 A.M. – Usually try to get my hair out of my face by now and basically I’ve just spent all this time waking up.  It takes me a while to GET UP, okay? :) But I’ll usually have my hair done by now.

6:45 A.M. – Okay so I shower and get ready around now and just get ready for the day.  Yay. 

7:00 A.M. - Typically (Note how I like to say “usually” and “typically”) I try to be ready by this time and head downstairs to start the morning.  I drink a glass of water (I’ve been mixing a little apple cider vinegar with it lately AND I REALLY LIKE IT.  Don’t look at me like that) and head to the living room, curl up on the couch, and grab my Bible.  Because that is the most important of my day.

7:25 A.M. – I’ll have tried to wrap up my devotions by now.  I try to give a half-hour to Bible reading every morning.  I’m going through the book of Acts and 2 Chronicles simultaneously and ummm.  Does anyone have amazing insight into Chronicles because I’d love to hear some wisdom on that.  Seriously.

7:30 A.M. BREAKFAST.  YASSS.  This is definitely one of the best parts of the morning.  Yanno, because food?? YES.  I used to skip out on breakfast a lot, but recently I’ve been loving it more and I try to make it a priority to eat especially on school mornings.  I don’t know why, but I always seem to get 10000x more hungry before lunch when I have classes.  Today I ate granola (HOMEMADE BY YOURS TRULY.) and it was pretty good. (OBVIOUSLY. I mean….it was made by a chef. *cough* NOT.)

7:45 A.M. – Okay, so by now I’m done eating and I’m packing a lunch.  I like to have most of my stuff ready so it’s really just throwing everything in a sack and calling it a day.  Today I had salad (HEALTHY!! Lol no I must’ve been feeling inspired today or something.) and some popcorn.  Once I have that done, I have like fifteen minutes before I need to leave for my first class, so I usually check my emails and dashboard and sigh because nothing exciting pops up.

8:00 A.M. – I usually leave around this time to head to class.  Fun.  So much fun and excitement going on right now. 
But I usually try to be pretty positive about it because HEY pessimism isn’t really going to help my day all that much and education isn’t bad.  Ha.

1:00 – 3:00 P.M. – Alright so the reason I have the time from one to three is because it really varies what time I usually get home.  Some days it’s earlier and some days it’s later; it really depends on what classes I have that day and what’s going on.  But for TODAY we’re going to say I came home at three. (That way we won’t have to go into the part where I sit in front of the computer and eat cereal.)

3:00 P.M. – I come home STARVING.  I always get so so hungry by the time I get home.  So I raid the fridge and eat. EAT ALL THE FOOD, MAN. Okay, well not all of it. That wouldn’t go so well.
But I basically just come home, relax, get in my sweats, check the computer (aka 30% writing/working on blog posts/productive work and 70% wasting time), do homework, and stuff like that.  Life stuff.  Some days I’ll feel inspired and cook a real meal. 

4:30 P.M. – Finish whatever I’m doing whether that’s computer work, homework, or anything else, and start practicing my violin.  Usually it sounds like a squeaking noise because I forgot to practice for a week.  *ahem* But I quickly brush up on my songs, listen to a million YouTube videos on the song, and pack up my violin and books.

5:00 P.M. – Today I have violin practice so I rush around getting ready and eating a snack.  Trying to be organized here.  Not happening.

5:15 P.M. – Rushing around frantically trying to leave bc I NEED TO LEAVE.  Today some of my family had to go somewhere too so I was dropped off at violin class in the nick of time.  AAH.

6:00 P.M. – The drive home is the best because I relax, watch the sunset, and talk with dad about life and God.  It’s good.

7:00 P.M.– Supper and chill time. I love going outside and just watching the sunset and nature.  It’s so peaceful and good for the soul.  I get the things ready I’ll need for my classes the next day and work on writing my novel or blog posts.  Sometimes I read.  Sometimes I watch the news with my family.  Sometimes I contemplate the meaning of life.  It depends.

7:45 P.M. – I’m not big on working out, but I like to take a long walk on our treadmill.  It’s just relaxing and makes me feel good (LIKE I’M EXCERCISING! Ha! No.)

8:00 P.M. – I’ll take a few vitamins and start getting ready for bed whilst mentally making sure everything is set for the next day.  I’ll fill out my planner and make sure my homework is done. 
And I’ll ACTUALLY fall asleep sometime around nine – nine thirty.  I know it’s kinda early, but SLEEP, Y’ALL.  It’s bliss.

Alright, so that’s it! That’s a typical day in my life, and I hope you’re not sleeping of boredom yet.  BUT THAT’S JUST MY LIFE.  Each day is different and can be amazing in its own way if we choose to look for the beauty in it.  
I hope you have an amazing day and rock on. xx  

Thanks again to Autumn for this fab post!
