day in the life 2/11/15


I got a request to do a “day-in-the-life vlog,” but since that’s kind of difficult to do while I’m in school and running around all day I figured I would do a day-in-the-life post! {Idea from Robin!}

I love reading these (why am I so obsessed with other peoples’ lives…?) so I thought I would give it a go.

(p.s. I will be doing a day-in-the-life vlog this weekend when boyfriend and I go to San Francisco!)

Anyway, I will start this post now and update it as my day unfolds!


6:00 a.m. wake up to boyfriend’s alarm; annoyingly turn over and try to go back to sleep (like every other day) but fail because Oscar’s tiny weiner body somehow takes up more space than both of us combined.

7:41 a.m. Wake up. I don’t set an alarm (unless I’m waking up before 7) because my body naturally wakes up at 7:41 EVERY SINGLE DAY. Why 7:41? I don’t know. I sort of hate it.

7:45 a.m. Scroll through Instagram, check e-mail, Timehop, my horoscope (judge me) and Snapchat.

8:00 a.m. Empty my bursting bladder. Wash face. Cuddle with puppy.

8:10 a.m. Make breakfast! A cinnamon raisin bagel with butter, cottage cheese mixed with Quest protein powder and topped with granola, and coffee mixed with a Vanilla Creme protein shake.


8:25 a.m. Eat breakfast while catching up on Bloglovin’ and responding to e-mails, comments, etc. from you guys! (P.s. sorry if I haven’t gotten back to you yet–I literally have been averaging about forty recovery-related e-mails every day and they’re all super long and extensive. I’M JUST A PERSON! Half alien, too.)

9:10 a.m. Take Oscar potty. (Oops, forgot to do that one when I woke up. Good thing he didn’t poop in the closet again.)

9:15 a.m. Get all my snacks together for a day of being on campus, load up backpack and tidy up room.

9:30 a.m. Make my way to the bathroom to brush my teeth, throw on some sort of makeup, get dressed and do my hair put on a beanie. Accompanied by Oscar, who sits and stares at me for the whole entire time.

10:00 a.m. Hey, I’m early! I don’t have class until eleven. Update this post.

10:10 Drop Oscar off at home and see that I have a package! It’s the book I agreed to review that I cannot wait to read! (stay tuned)


10:20 Head to campus to work on some editing in the TV newsroom before class starts. Somehow have to park on the fifth floor of the parking garage, which is really weird.See like 20 people I know on the walk to the Journalism building…

IMG_6602 IMG_6603

10:53 Arrive in class and realize that I talk too much, so I have no time to edit. Oh well!

11:00 Journalism 460. Do a presentation, work on our Legislative bill assignment, talk about our trip to the Capitol tomorrow. Mostly draw.


12:15 Class ends; I make my way to a computer to open up my project and begin editing. Realize I somehow screwed up my sound recording yesterday, give up and decide to work on it later.

12:20 Open this post to edit it.

12:25 Time for food before my appointment.


12:25 Eat food while working on other assignments. Realize that nuts weren’t the best choice for a quiet lab…luckily most humans have headphones in. That banana shake was new and it was BOMB.

12:45 I have to pee. I should pee. I’m going to pee. … End up talking to friend in bathroom for approximately 10 minutes because apparently I can’t see a human without talking their ear off.

1:00 Make my way to the far side of campus to the Health Center.


1:07 Phone falls out of my flannel pocket somehow and I have a minor panic attack…made it out alive. No scratches. I’ve had this phone for 2 years with no screen protector and somehow it has survived. Passersby witness my little moment and laugh at my evident inner-monologue. Whatevs.

1:15 Get really confused because the main entrance is blocked, spend way too long figuring out how to get inside the stupid building. Check in on the computer and wait while scrolling through Twitter and Instagram. Avoid the mass of e-mails I currently have because STRESSED.


1:34 Get taken back to get weighed, blood pressure, etc. Catch glimpse of weight on paper…94 FREAKIN’ POUNDS. I’ve officially gained 20 (okay, well, 19, but honestly probably 20 or more since I have a feeling I was down to about 72 at one point.) Be scared and proud and ahhhhh. My BMI is finally just about 15! Much better than 11. Wait for doctor. SNAPCHAT LIKE A MADMAN.

IMG_6604 IMG_6605 IMG_6606 IMG_6608

1:55 <–My appointment was at 1:30 …. Anyway, chat with doctor about the past week and a half. Tell her how my sleeping sucks because of hot flashes. She tells me my pants are cute. I tell her this is the last time she will be seeing them because they’re about to pop off of my body, and…

2:20 Call mom on my walk to my next class. While walking, my pants literally unbutton. Laugh hysterically at my situation and share the news of weight gain (right as my pants ironically pop off) with mama. She’s proud of me but still wants me to gain more (obviously) and I plan on it (obviously) (ice cream) …

2:30 Class time. Com 468. We did an improv activity and somehow I ended up being the host of the game “party quirks” in front of the whole class. One of the partyers was a “klepto-maniac salesman” and he yanked my beanie off of my head while acting. I got real sassy real quick and told him you should never pull off a girl’s beanie since she’s obviously hiding her dirty grease-ball hair. He gave it back. Also, I won the game. Also I led a discussion for class which was cool. Also I doodled.

IMG_6611And ate this bar.


3:45 Class ova! Walk to my car while drinking an ensure. Try not to vom from said ensure.

4:00 Get to my car and drive to Target. Pick up essentials (ice cream, macaroni, a dress.) See one of my best friends Morgan there! Weird, because I just saw her at Walmart yesterday. Stalker.

5:00 Leave Target. Cry. Just kidding.

5:10 Pick up Oscar…he peed all over my car.

5:20 Arrive at Jarrett’s home and put away my ice cream before it melts. (And punish Oscar for peeing all over my car.)


For some reason he only blinks with one eye, so it’s like he’s always winking. He’s so weird.

5:30 Open this post and update it. Add in the pictures up to this point.

5:40 Jarrett gets home and harasses me. We talk about stuff. La la la.

5:55 Jarrett covers my screen and I can still see what I’m typing ha ha ha.

6:00 Jarrett leaves for the gym and I’m relieved because he was being annoying. I go to the kitchen to make dinner and decide to update this post later tonight.

6:15 Chow down on my winner dinner while watching Modern Family. Seriously…I haven’t put creamed cheese on my sandwich for years and I did it tonight. OH MY GOSH. Heaven. I took the top slice off so you could see the beautiful interior. (Creamed cheese, honey mustard, Italian deli turkey, 2 slices of melty cheese, parmesan…and more creamed cheese on the other piece of bread.) + a Larabar & milk.


6:35 Hurry to hop in the shower and wash my afore-mentioned grease ball hair so I can start Jarrett’s dinner before he gets home from the gym. Get distracted before getting in the shower and end up petting Cassie and Maverick for quite a while.

6:53 Start boiling water because the King requested Mac n Cheese for dinner. Hence my Target trip earlier.


7:03 Jarrett gets home and I’m finishing up the mac & cheese. We put cut up hot dogs in it, too. Nostalgia.

7:30 Wheel of Fortune is on, so that means it’s time to watch with my ice cream. I have so many flavors that it was a struggle to choose, but I decided on this So Delicious Cookies & Cream. Yes, I ate it all. I always do.


8:18 Open this post. Update/add photos.

8:30 Forget that I had some homework that I didn’t do…I guess I should do that.

8:50 Jump on Jarrett and make him give me attention.

9:19 I brush my teeth. I don’t floss. I’m feeling lazy.

9:38 I get in bed and will likely be awake for a few hours before falling asleep, if I even do fall asleep. I publish this post and lay down with my puppy. Goodnight!

  1. One of my favourite things about winter is the fact that I can put my hair in a beanie and not have to worry about bad hair days. Saves SO much time. And I’ve been putting off getting a case for my new phone because it’s so pretty, and I’m just waiting for the day where it slips out of my picket and shatters on the ground. Yikes. I should probably get around to getting one…


  2. Ahh this was so much fun to read! I plan on doing one of these “day in the life” posts at some point. You are so funny, probably the best ‘day in the life’ post I’ve ever read xD

    also so proud of you for choosing recovery and how far you’ve come ❤ from one ed fighter to another, you are so inspiring. Keep being awesome ! ❤ xoxo


  3. I love these types of posts! You should also do a WIAW 🙂 Just for fun 😛 Have a wonderful time in San Fran! I love the city! You should definitely have a clam chowder bowl on the pier…those are the best.
