Day in the Life: Internship and Domestic Duties

Another phase in life, another one of my favorite posts!

I use the term “phase” lightly, because I’m just referring to the in-school phase vsersus summer phase. No major life changes have occurred in the past two months (unless you count the hike up Bear Peak, which was pretty life-changing IMO).

Here’s what a typical summer day has been like for me! And since I’m sharing my eats, I’m also linking up with What I Ate Wednesday— still the coolest online food fiesta around.

5:55 AM First alarm goes off. Ignored.

5:58 AM Second alarm goes off (yes, I set an alarm three minutes after my first). Basically force myself to fall off the bed in order to get up.

6:05 AM Drive Pop to the train station.

6:30 AM Come back home and go back to sleep.

8:15 AM Wake up, take two. Go downstairs to start preparing breakfast, which was Amanda’s blueberry muffin breakfast bake!

8:35 AM Go back upstairs to get ready for the day, pray, all that jazz.

9:00 AM Dress up breakfast with Greek yogurt and banana cream sauce. Picture time!

9:15 AM Blog, pack lunch, and watch the Today show while eating. Dig in with a baby spoon in an attempt to savor it, but end up taking bites that were bigger than the spoon.

did you enter my big giveaway!?

10:15 AM Go upstairs to change out of PJs and put on makeup.

10:30 AM Leave for PT internship.

11:00 AM Arrive at PT internship and eat a Nature Valley granola bite (their new product coming out next month!) before heading in to start the day.

2:30 PM Lunch break. I packed brown rice with leftover pork, grilled shrimp, and veggies + the rest of the BelVita biscuits.

4:15 PM Leave internship and go grocery shopping. Take much too long looking for Enlightened crisps in the natural section (couldn’t find) and deciding whether or not I want to buy pork butt for pulled pork later in the week (didn’t buy just yet).

6:00 PM Arrive home, put groceries away, waste time on social media, change into active clothing, and eat a few of these Somersaults that I just bought using a coupon from Blend (one of which you can win in the giveaway package!). I had to tell myself to zip up the bag before I ate them all if that says anything about how good they are.

6:30 PM Go for a neighborhood walk. Pray some, listen to music some. Enjoy the heat and sunshine.

7:05 PM Back home to do some bodyweight Bulgarian split squats and stretching.

7:30 PM Wash dishes that I left in the sink from breakfast.

7:40 PM Start warming up dinner. Hooray for grill leftovers! I had the same exact thing I ate for Memorial Day lunch and dinner.

8:00 PM Eat while starting this blog post, checking Facebook, watching Chopped, and texting my friends. Aka what you’re not supposed to do while eating a meal, but #sololife.

9:25 PM Dessert time! Vanilla bean ice cream with macerated strawberries and a peanut butter honey cookie from WB Kitchen (also from Blend swag). Start typing this post in real time.

9:45 PM Shower. Start typing this post as a pretense to what I’m about to do (actually shower at 10:05).

10:20 PM Start to wind down with reading. Brush teeth and pray.

10:40 PM Pick up Pop from the train station. This was an extra late night for him.

11:00 PM Head to sleep!

Hope you all have a fine day!

So tell me:

Do you ever set your alarms less than five minutes apart?

What did you eat for lunch yesterday?

What do you summer days look like?

  1. Those desks are so cool! Want! I am that sad type of person that wakes up about 30 mins before the alarm goes off aha! I rarely have to set an alarm as my body naturally wakes up early. Mostly a gift but not so much when it’s been a late night the day before! And yesterday for lunch… I ate a sandwich! It’s sad how long I had to think about that considering I just wrote up my WIAW with yesterday’s meals. Granny syndrome right here.
    Those PB cookies though….

  2. You eat such good food girl. I love Somersaults too but my favorite are the cinnamon ones! I miss having summer breaks for sure. When I had summers, I would spend a lot of my time by the pool!

  3. OMG #sololife all day everyday 😀 I often watch youtube videos while eating, too often actually. Oh well!
    I had a salad with bell pepper and cucumber, and an eglish muffin with camembert cheese for lunch yesterday 🙂

  4. Definately set alarms 5min apart bc it feels so good to know I have 5 more min and also bc I’m OCD and am worried if I only set one and sleep through it I screwed 🙈😂
    My summer days=job hunting fun times woo hoo #notatall
    I had tuna salad for lunch!
    O those soft granola bites look amazing!!
    Have a great one Alison !

  5. Is it weird that I don’t actually set alarms at all? I just naturally wake up freakishly early, although that definitely wasn’t the case when I was in my late teens and early twenties — I literally had to be dragged out of bed back then. And speaking of getting old, I literally can’t remember what I had for lunch yesterday… and I wrote a WIAW 😆 I think it wassssss…. OH! A copycat Chipotle burrito bowl. Was tasty 🙂
