On that note, here is what my average day looks like!
This is my first alarm. I am definitely the type of person that needs AT LEAST four alarms to wake up, so I usually just hit the snooze button until the very last alarm.
Rise and shine! I hop out of bed and start getting ready for my day. This includes washing up, skin care, make up, hair, and just making sure I look presentable when I go to externship. I am a firm believer of the saying, “Look good, feel good!”
I start to get my lunch and snacks ready so it can last me the whole day. I am someone that constantly needs food no matter what, or I will become ravenously hungry!
I grab something quick to eat for breakfast – usually a yogurt, granola bar, and a banana—and head out the door to go to my externship
I usually arrive at my externship around this time. I am currently placed at McKinley Elementary School and I love it. I am learning so much from my supervisor and through our caseload as well.
Externship has ended, and I am usually exhausted. I make my way over to Salus to prep for the next day and to get ready for class.
Class is starting! Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and sometimes Mondays, are when we have night class from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Somedays are harder to get through than others, but overall it is not too bad. At times it will take more focus to pay attention just because the first half of our day is extremely jampacked, but I definitely have become acclimated with my schedule.
Class is over and it is time to go home.
I usually get home around this time. I run in and get dressed to go to the gym.Sometimes I’ll stay at Salus to go to the Hafter Center
, but most of the times I’ll go to my home gym.
This is when I usually start my workout! I always try to plan my workouts in advance, so I do not waste time trying to think of things to do. Grad school can be very overwhelming and stressful, so I definitely recommend taking at least an hour of the day for yourself, whether it be Netflix, gym, or any other activity that you enjoy.
I am home! I’ll eat a late dinner then will start getting ready for tomorrow. I make sure that my outfit, prep, lunch, and any assignments are finished and ready
