My Marvelously Mundane Routine

This article is brought to you by the fifth Blaugust 2020 Promtapalooza topic presented by the awesome blogger Everwake: Everyone has specific rituals that they follow, tell us about one of yours.

My biggest personal ritual is probably the regular weekday routine I stick to very closely. Yeah. My offline life is honestly pretty boring, but I am actually quite grateful to still have most of the normality I took for granted in the pre-coronapocalypse era. Stability is where it’s at, yo!

Anyway, brace yourselves… here’s the super uninteresting typical weekday routine of a forever single asexual woman, and old crazy cat lady in training! On the weekends I pretty much just do whatever I feel like (usually sleep/video games and/or go on adventures with offline friends).

5:00am – Wake up to the sound of an annoying alarm. Or what’s been happening far too often lately: keep snoozing my alarm until I absolutely have to get up (or one of my cats claws me in the face).

This is Thumper! He’s the one who claws me in the face if I don’t get up on time.

5:00am to 6:00am – Get ready for the work thing, eat the usual breakfast (oatmeal mixed with chia seeds, blueberries, and almonds), pack lunch (no effort required since I subscribe to a healthy meal prep service), pay attention to my two needy cats as required.

6:00am to 7:00am – Walk to work. It’s a 3.6KM trip one way that takes about 35 minutes (I also have the gear to walk in all possible weather conditions). I usually take my sweet time and takeover a few gyms in Pokémon GO along the way.

7:00am to 3:00pm – Work. Conference calls waste a lot of this time lately. I could be using all of this time to get work things done, but nooo…. I gotta talk about everything I need to do for hours. Sigh.

3:00pm to 4:45pm – Kill time while I wait for my class at my gym (it’s near where I work). I usually read blog posts and bug streamers on Twitch during this time.

4:45pm to 5:45pm – Class at the gym. This is an hour of high intensity interval training hell, followed by the best feeling ever (yay happy brain chemicals from exercise).

Love how my gym keeps track of stats and whatnot.

5:45pm to 6:45pm – Walk home (more like stagger home since the gym is hard). I also stop at the grocery store on my way if I need anything.

This is Stewart! He’s usually the one waiting at the door to headbutt me when I get home from work.

6:45pm to 7:30pm – Eat supper, tidy up, pay attention to needy cats. Supper is no effort thanks to the meal prep service I subscribe to. I hate the whole cooking process and this is the best way to be lazy and eat really healthy, all while supporting a cool local business!

7:30pm to 11:30pm – Free time. Blogging, video games, watching people on Twitch, inadvertently falling asleep on the couch, etc.

11:30pm – Go to sleep and prepare to do it all over again the next day.

Zzzzzzzzz.

  1. My day to day stuff hasn’t changed much during the coronapocalypse either, strange how what is often considered tedious is now quite comforting to have that little bit of normality.

    One of my cats Chloe if I don’t get up when she wants me to she starts rubbing her head against my face and then pretty much lies on it if I still don’t move.

    1. It’s so weird how I’m clinging on to how happy my boring routine makes me these days, haha.

      Aw! Chloe sounds much kinder than Thumper. He always claws me if he doesn’t get his way. Spoiled brat haha

  2. Interesting work hours. I’d prefer to start at 7 am. I wake up super early.

    Anyway, hardly uninteresting, I’d say! Like 99.9% of us do the same thing every day. More or less. You can shake the routine up by carrying punching anyone you see on sight.

    And I just this second got an email saying, “Grab a £20 family bucket with KFC!” No. No, I will not. Drama!
