  • Morning routine

    What's your morning routine look like? When do you get up, make breakfast, do you take a shower, or workout? When do you leave for work? I recently moved for a new job and my morning are all weird now, so I'm looking for some ideas.

    I'm up and out the house in 15-20 minutes, no eating, no showering. Just dress, toilet, grab lunch, make coffee, get in car.....

      I get up and shower and get ready, I never cook in the morning, always the night before and I normally don't eat until lunch or my first break at work.

      I try to avoid having to a lot before work because I know I'll sleep in and then be stressed and rushing around.

        7:30 - Wake up
        7:40 - Dressed and out the door
        VELO! a couple miles to work
        8:00 - At desk

        And that's about all I can say.

          I wake up around 6 am splash some water in my face and over my body put on my flaming short, shoes, shirt and a cap. Then I guzzle down half cup of strong black coffee on my way to the beach for cardio that last an hour, including sprints, fartslek, easy jogging and some brisk walking. Then back for a shower. No real breakfast until 2 PM, just some diet gelatine…

              Interesting seeing the variations in everyone's routines. Here's mine . . .

              wake @ 5 AM (M-F)
              15 - 20 minute workout (Zgym)
              shower
              make coffee
              take care of dog
              get dressed while drinking coffee
              head to work
              @ work for 7:30 AM
              if hungry, I'll have breakfast (Greek yogurt w/nuts, shredded coconut & dried cranberries) at my desk, anwhere b/w 9-ish & 11-ish.

                I don't really have ONE routine aside from what I drink/eat first thing in the morning and showering, because every day is different. Some days are 12 hour photoshoots and some are with tons of client meetings. Other days I'm in class just like any other law student. Three types of typical days though...

                Law School Days:
                Get up around 8AM, make/eat/drink: Coffee + coconut milk/milk + gelatin (x2-3), vitamins, raw carrot, 1tsp coconut oil every other day or so.
                Shower.
                Spend 2 hours checking/answering emails with clinic clients (I do pro bono legal work for startups) and for fashion website. MDA if I have time.
                Read for class.
                Leave for class @ 2pm (I got lucky this semester) +clinic meetings+etc.

                Photoshoot days: Basically out the door after the coffee milk combo + shower. Pack 1L grassfed low fat kefir because or else I'm not going to get to eat all day.

                Non-law school/shoot days:
                Get up whenever (8-11am), make/eat/drink the same stuff.
                Make clay or aspirin mask, shower to wash it off.
                Check emails/do client work.
                Go to gym, lift heavy, eat a LOT.
                Come back and do more work for clients, for website, or FUN STUFF (whatever that is- so rare the past 2 months).

                  Aspirin mask? That's the first I've heard of that.

                  Is law school not an every day thing? Or is that a reference to weekends?

                    Yep it's like an alpha hydroxy acid peel but cheaper. As you may know, aspirin is a weak acid.

                    I have 5 credits' worth of clinic this semester, which is like a law firm job except we are in charge of handling our own workload and meetings with clients, and the only work we do is for startups (funded and unfunded) and small entrepreneurs. Hence I only really have real class Monday and Wednesday as it's only 7 credits of class (law journal counts as 1 credit). Thursday/Friday I meet with clients and my patent group within the clinic, but I get to do it on my own time. We file patents, trademarks, do incorporation, and play patent litigation support. Tuesday, Saturday, Sunday I do fashion stuff (freelance styling, etc.) or take it "easy" (I.e. Catch up on school LOL).

                      So I guess the clinic pays? If so it sounds like a good deal, since it's work it sounds like you want to do. NYC isn't exactly a cheap city, I'm told. It's on my to-do list...maybe next year...

                      I work full time and can manage full time school as two two-class mini-semesters at a time. Not very enjoyable. It's all for my job, anyways, so it keeps me motivated as I'm the Breadwinner for the SO and I. Nothing like not having the option to fail to keep you cutting through

                      Soon though I'm going to have MOAR WORKZ thrown on me as my superiors failed to properly inform me what's required for my SA letters and I have to go drum up the training for an MCSA in a Server environment. Before end of year. Heh.

                      I can't imagine it compares to law school, however, as lawyering is a real job and has a much higher education standard. I'm told.

                        Haha nah. It doesn't pay (it's just for credit and it's free legal work), and NYC is expensive. However, I have a full ride and so the loans aren't that bad. Hopefully the patent litigation internship this summer with big law will turn into a permanent offer. Usual at big law the percentage of interns who get offers is over 90%, so hopefully unless I do something stupid I will get hired. Then I will work maybe 5ish years to get a certain amount of salary to set aside post-loans, finish being trained (law school doesn't teach you how to be an attorney) and decide what to do with my life. I have a few ideas and they are all insanely ambitious. XD

                        I have no idea what your third paragraph means... *feeling stupid*

                          Up at 4:30. Breakfast at 5. Watch the news/weather/sportscenter/top gear. Get lunch together. Shower at 6. Work at 7. I like to not feel rushed in the morning.

                            Up at 6 to 6:30. Shower. Put shower water on garden, pick up newspaper.
                            Cook breakfast - eggs,and/or bacon, or rissoles with or without veg. Supplements.
                            Read paper while eating.
                            Teeth cleaning, dressed. Wrap last nights leftovers for lunch.
                            Out the door 7:30 to 8am.
                            30 minute walk to work.

                            Weekends very similar. Usually longer over breakfast, and may have a walk before shower and breakfast.

                              It's a reference to employment and education certification as the definition of/factor in one's place in social pecking order. I'm saying all the job related school crap is likely nothing in comparison to how law school is, as law school gets you in a real job while I just futz with computer systems.

                              The "real job" version of the IT/SA is a computer engineer

                              So do you live off loan disbursements? Sweet deal IMO.
