Hey there! As part of the Mini Blog Challenge hosted by Joi over at RxFitnessLady, we are stepping into our time machines and traveling back to 2003! Today’s post is Throwback Thursday “Ten Years”: A Day in the Life. Get excited for a day in the life of a future blogger! 🙂
So ten years ago I was 20 years old. In college, not old enough to legally drink alcohol and I had not yet met the Hubs! Crazy times. To be honest, I can barely remember what a day in the life looked like back then but I’ll give it the old college try (har, har, pun intended- see yesterday’s post on humor).
12:50 pm- Class 2 is OVER and I’m DONE for the day! Yay! Heading to D hall for lunch with friends!
1:50pm- Lunch is over and now it’s back to my apartment to study. I am one of the lucky few to be a junior in college and living in an on-campus apartment. I room with three seniors and compared to the dorms it feels like we have a ton of space!
2pm-5pm- Study, study, study!
5:15pm- Head to Modlin Center for dance class. It’s Thursday so I’m probably taking modern-my least favorite. After class we have rehearsal until 8:30pm for our show that will be in February. This year I’m choreographing a piece and I’m performing in a number of dance pieces.
8:45pm- Back at the apartment for a quick dinner. Probably chicken with veggies and a diet ginger ale. Some tv. Then more studying. Try to get to bed no later than midnight but probably doesn’t happen!
Ok, let’s compare shall we?
6am- Alarm goes off. It’s Thursday so I have physical therapy at 7am. If it were any other day of the week, I would be working out in my apartment, most likely doing Turbo Fire.
7am- At physical therapy (or most days of the week/when I’m not injured-showering and getting ready for work).
8:20 am- It’s out the door headed to the subway to Grand Central and then walking to my office.
9 am- I’m at my desk eating breakfast, usually yogurt with berries or toast with almond butter. Then it’s work, work, work until 1pm.
1pm- Lunch! I head outside for a walk and some reading/music time.
2pm- Back at my desk for some more work!
6pm- It’s time to head home. I’m out the door, to the subway and then home by 6:30pm
6:30 pm- Because I had PT in the morning I’m working out at night. If I was not working out in the evening I would blog, make dinner, eat dinner and watch some tv, more blog, do a few chores, respond to blog comments, social media share, etc.
Readers, what does your day look like? What were you doing 10 years ago!?
haha this is great! yup i was 20 also and i would have been in the beginning of my semester abroad in florence exactly 10 years from today 🙂 crazy looking back. now that was a fun schedule- i was taking creative writing, italian, ballet and flamenco dancing. that was an awesome year 🙂
What a fun post! I started thinking about it, and I couldn’t remember much about a day in my life ten years ago either. I was almost twenty years old and in college so likely are days looked very similar (except dance-I have two left feet!).
Cool that you did a comparison. Your day sounded typical except I was heading to basketball practice. I don’t think I had discovered just yet that you were a dancer….one more fitness quality of yours! Super cool throwback dear! Thanks for participating.
Ten years ago I’d be starting my sophomore year at GWU, taking a lot of political science classes, watching a lot of SATC, and probably spending too much time and money at Starbucks. Now I spend my day running or Bar Method-ing (that’s weird verb), lawyering, blogging when I can, trying to relax at night and starting all over again 🙂
10 years ago… I was 16. I was in boarding school. I was actually starting to decline. My heath was suffering. I was depressed. I wanted to go home. I did get what I wanted. But I hated high school. I wanted to be done.
ADVANCE 10 years – AND I AM THE HAPPIEST PERSON IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!! All past experiences shape who I am as a person and I am thankful to have gone through so much CRAP to be the happy and appreciative camper I am today!
Love the dance class photo – but which one are YOU?? Isn’t it funny that we can’t remember what a one day at college was like? I can’t either!!
Your desk is so pretty. Love the Channel print out. I can almost smell it…ahhhhh!
I just found your blog and this post make me laugh. Gosh, 10 years ago feels like FOREVER ago. I thought I was the coolest girl in middle school. Why? I do not know, but I did. Obviously, I wasn’t. I can only imagine where I’ll be 10 years from now—it seems so far away.
Hey It’s me again….ok so I just finisehd stalking your blog! OMG you were BEA U TI FUL on your wedding day. You got married in Maui one of my favorite destinations in the world. My husband were just there for our 10 year anniversary (aslo where we honeymooned). Just found your blog thanks to Joi’s #mbc but you have a new follower.
