This was going to be a "one photo an hour" post, but I really have no patience to pull that off (and it would all be grainy iPhone pictures of me sitting at my desk).
So instead, I bring you--a day in the life of...ME!
|Hi! I'm Allison. I'm 23 years old and I'm a sales associate/event coordinator |
for a catering and events company!
6AM - 7:45AM -- My day usually begins around 6AM when my alarm first goes off (having every good intention of getting up early to go to the gym). I hit snooze about a dozen times and then when I finally drag myself out of bed (around 7:45M), I get ready for the day. I almost always have my clothes laid out the day before, so after I get dressed it's off to get coffee.
8AM-8:45AM -- In the drive thru line waiting on coffee and likely doing my makeup. I'd love to say that I have this really great routine, but more than half of the time, I'm doing my makeup in the car.
9AM -- I've clocked in and I'm at my desk. The first thing I do is check old messages, email, make lists, and turn on a Spotify playlist. I don't think I could make it through the day without coffee and/or music. And the countdown to 5PM begins.
12PM - 1PM -- I've made it through the morning and it's lunch time. When I'm not on a diet, I'm eating something yummy that the kitchen has cooked up for the day. Or if I'm lucky, it's a day we have a tasting and I get to eat like a queen. I do work for a catering company after all!
2PM-5PM -- More of answering the phone, posting to social media/helping create ads (my favorite), and qualifying leads. I usually book or help answer questions about an event during the day and if I make any appointments, I try to schedule them in the afternoon--The last part of the day seems to pass the fastest.
|Are you hungry yet? THIS is why I'm ALWAYS on a diet!|
After 5PM -- PARTY! Just kidding. But really. After I get off work, I'll try to talk myself into working out, cleaning the house, and all other adult like responsibilities. In reality, I'll most likely come home and watch Netflix and blog.
Dinner is either NOTHING (because I ate too much during the day) or something easy: drive through or frozen dinner. When I'm done binge watching my favorite shows (currently catching up on Once Upon a Time) I'll take a bubble bath and go to bed around 10PM. What an exciting life I lead. I really can't stay up late anymore--if I don't get at least 8-10 hours of sleep I will be a zombie at work the next day.
While my days are mostly routine, my favorite days are when I can get out of the office to go to a bridal show, participate in a tasting, or lunch meeting, or run errands.
What's your day like?
