9:00 AM: Although my class isn’t until 10:35 AM, I need room in my schedule to hit snooze about three times. I get ready and leave around 10 AM just in case the elevator takes a long time (I live on the 29th floor of my building!!!).
10:35 AM: I have a bagel in one hand and Starbucks in the other (thank God it’s included in my meal plan). I’m taking a course called Milestones in Communication Research and likely not paying attention because the slides are always posted after class. Instead, I daydream about traveling and look up flights to random places a gal can only dream of.
12:15 PM: Another class. French!
2:00 PM: I head back to my cafe to grab a sandwich and fruit before I head to work. I work at my school’s call center and reach out to alumni to get donations for the school. Yes, I’m practically a telemarketer. Yes, I hate being THAT person. But hey, a girl needs money.
5:00 PM: Break time. I usually go and get more food. There’s not much to do at a call center other than eating, reading, or getting some homework done. Sometimes, I eat my food in Seaport, a little neighborhood right next to Pace, on the East River facing Brooklyn.
9:00 PM: Finally free from work!!!!!
9:30 PM: Now, I’m either talking to my roommates, on my phone, or debating if I should start my homework. I’m probably staring out my window and trying to wrap my head around the fact that I go to bed with this view every night.
11:00 PM: Showered. I’m now in bed and probably watching Youtube or SNL reruns. This goes on until 1 AM. I do not condone this when you have class at 9 AM, but I continue to do it anyway.
