Day Twenty Five

My Day, In Great Detail

Day Twenty Five - NapoleonI thought about writing this post earlier in the day today and writing the details about yesterday. But I was at work. And, for me, work involves confidential information that I really shouldn’t openly share on a blog. So you’re getting my day today. It was the beginning of Thanksgiving break, so it might be slightly boring in parts. Or on the whole. But I leave that for you to decide. I present to you Wednesday, November 25, 2015.Day Twenty Five - Morning

  • 6am – I woke up. Not because I was forced to by the alarm on my phone. I woke up because my body is conditioned to wake up at such an ungodly hour thanks to years of working in a school district that begins far too early and is also nearly an hour’s drive away from my home.
  • 6:30 – I was still in bed. I had the TV on and I was catching up on the morning news while attempting to drift back to sleep, even though I knew that was a statistical impossibility.
  • 7am – I finally gave up on my attempts at closing my eyes and falling asleep again. So I sat up, opened my laptop, and checked my email. Oh, and somewhere in here I gave in to the urge to hit the bathroom. And also brush my teeth. ‘Cause the taste in my mouth upon waking up was pretty horrible.
  • 7:15 – I remembered that I decided to procrastinate last night and did not complete my daily notes from the school day yesterday. So I decided to get that done.
  • 8am-9:43 – Most of this time was a blur. I know I was awake. But I made a conscious effort to be lazy this morning. It’s the first day of a long Thanksgiving break and I wanted to make the most of it… or, I guess, the least of it. See, I haven’t had an actual day off where I haven’t had anything that I’ve needed to do in a long time. So I wanted to veg out a bit.
  • 9:43 – I got an email from the children’s ministry director asking me to make sure this Sunday’s curriculum has been uploaded. So that’s what I did next.
  • 10am – I ate a delicious bowl of Frosted Flakes.
  • 10am-1:30pm – I binge-watched the last few episodes of Jessica Jones on Netflix. It’s a pretty good show. Not as good as Daredevil was, but better than a lot of stuff on TV these days.
  • 1:30 – It was time to shower. I at least needed to wash my hair. It was still standing up from when I woke up 7.5 hours earlier. I was looking a little like Wolverine. Or a lot like a Flock of Seagulls.
  • 2:00pm – I left the house. It was really exciting, leaving the house for the first only time today. I went to the grocery store to pick up some supplies to get me through the next few days. I was asked to make mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving dinner. I hope they like instant, ’cause that’s what I got. I thought about getting something from the Redbox while I was out, but then I decided that I’ve got a ton of movies at home I could watch for free.
  • 3:00pm – I’m sure I got home at some point before this. But, honestly, I didn’t pay much attention to the time throughout the day today. Most of these times that I’ve already listed are extremely rough estimates. Except for when I got the email from the children’s ministry director. That was time stamped.
  • 3:15 – I watched The Black Cauldron. I’d completely forgotten that Netflix sent me this disc months ago and I just never watched it. I’d seen it before. But it had been years. I was curious about the story and why Princess Eilonwy isn’t considered a part of Disney’s princess line-up. Anyway, this is not a kids movie, which probably answers my question right there. Oh, and I ate a very late lunch while I watched the movie.
  • 5:00pm – I rearranged my DVD collection. Believe it or not, I’ve allowed my DVDs to sit on the shelves in my closet in an unorganized state ever since I moved into my new home. Even though I claimed that DVD alphabetization is about the one thing I’m OCD about. I feel better about it now.
  • 6:30 – Did a little light reading.
  • 8:30 – Finally decided to get this blog post done. I’m writing this while watching X-Files reruns on Netflix. It’s 9:00 now. I can’t believe it’s taken me half an hour to try and piece together everything I’ve done today. I think it was more difficult simply because I hardly did anything.

Tomorrow’s Thanksgiving… maybe it’ll be a little more exciting. You can never tell when family get-togethers are involved. I might bring up the topic of Syrian refugees and see where that leads everyone during dinner conversation. Could be fun.Burned - Evil Laugh

  1. I’m just catching up, but I really liked this–and the Syrian refugees topic is amazing haha. Did you end up bringing it up? If so, how’d it go?! And good to know about Jessica Jones–I need to start watching it.
