Friday Five: A Day In The Life Of MOI!

After a couple weeks off I’m excited to be participating in the Friday Five with Courtney, Cynthia and Mar. This week’s topic? A day in the life of.


I have to admit. I didn’t quite know how to approach this one. I have so much on my plate that each day is different from the last. The only thing that’s consistent is going to work from 9 to 5 and even that isn’t the same on Fridays where I work from 8 to 4 instead.

So I’m going to keep it simple and just go over how Thursday was.

7:00 AM – I spent the night at my boyfriend’s so I have to wake up earlier than normal to get ready for work. My original plan was to wake up at 5:30 so I could go running but after a lengthy debate with my boyfriend the night before, he (somehow) convinced me that getting 7 ½ hours of sleep before a midterm was more important than waking up early enough to go running. He was being so annoying I let him win, but by yesterday evening I was so so glad I took his advice, even if I was annoyed that I couldn’t squeeze in a run.

7:30 AM – I’m out the door to drive to work. I can leave for work at 8 but that means I have to take the ICC and pay $4. If I can leave thirty minutes earlier I can take the back roads that are cheaper, more scenic, but also a little longer.

9-5 – Work! I work for a university as an advisor/recruiter/paper pusher/little bit of everything. I like my job and every day is different. Thursday was very busy, which was good because I didn’t have enough time to worry about my impending midterm.

My work family!

5-6 – Rush to Harris Teeter to pick up some healthy munchies, grapes and popcorn, so I won’t be hungry during my midterm, I don’t have a lot of food in the house because I’m trying to eat it all before I leave for Chicago on Saturday, I also knew I wasn’t going to have time to cook dinner so grapes and popcorn it was!

6-9:00 – IT’S MIDTERM TIME!! The midterm was take home, but timed, and we still couldn’t use notes or anything. Despite all my stressing out, once I received it I breathed a sigh of relief, because I knew how to answer every question, my studying paid off! I’m scared to be too confident though, because what if I jinx myself, but I’m pretty sure I did well on it.

8:30-12 – I finished my midterm with 30 minutes to spare, and then it was time to unwind, catch up on the Mindy Project, talk to my boyfriend, do laundry, start packing for Chicago, get started on some more studying that needs to be done, Snapchat with my sister, work on my blog post for today, crochet for a bit because I need to do something that is relaxing and doesn’t involve looking at a screen, look at the clock, freak out because it’s an hour later than I wanted to go to bed, and finally, SLEEP!

I know that’s actually 6 things but I couldn’t fit it all into 5 things! I also don’t know if seeing my entire day spelled out makes me feel more or less stressed…

What munchies would be your favorite picks?

  1. Haha I couldn’t just keep it to 5 either! 🙂
    I hope you did great on your mid-term! It sounds like it was a breeze for you. I always loved the take home tests. I was so much more relaxed doing them in my own house where I could not wear shoes and have snacks on hand. Grapes always work for me! (Also apples, cheese, cottage cheese with apples and cinnamon mixed in…YUM!)


  2. Your boyfriend was probably right about the sleep before a midterm but being right just makes it more annoying 🙂 it sounds like you did well! I love the ICC for saving time but the charge can be painful so I only use it sporadically as well.


  3. I shop at Harris Teeter too! I’m not big on “munchies” (I usually snack on apples with PB or Larabars) but I think that if I had to grab something quick before a test I would go with trail mix, since that always keeps me pretty full. I hope the midterm went well!


  4. Fingers crossed for your midterm results. I never thought of Harris Teeter as expensive – but I rarely go there. Giant isn’t cheap, but I’m used to the prices and know what goes on sale in cycles (like Chobani …)
