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).
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).
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.
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.
