Ok, you be the judge. Let's go through a day in the life of Dwell by Cheryl. For starters, I wake up checking my social media feeds.
I know, I know. It's a BAD habit. It's really just Instagram (Facebook and Twitter aren't my favorites). Then, I roll out of bed, stumble to the Keurig and sit down with my sword (a.k.a. The Bible). I love the Ipad You Version app. It's a free app that let's you take the Bible (in all versions) everywhere.
Yes, I know this should come before Instagram. What can I say? I'm a work in progress. After some quiet time with The Lord, it's a mad dash to the door.
I typically know what my first social media post of the day will be (I decide that the night before) and I post it around 8:00 a.m. just as I'm heading out for work.
I like to be at the top of my followers feed most days. After a short commute, I arrive at the day job and my work space is quite quaint.
People comment on how cozy it is. I try to refrain from passing them my DBC Interiors card. : )
When I'm at work, I'm at work and DBC Interiors ceases to exist, that is until lunch time. I believe in maximizing every moment. Luckily my office is situated in a pretty good location, and I can often knock a few errands off my list when necessary.
When I'm not feeling like an outing, I will literally back away from my desk, get on Ipad with my own Internet and take a "break" to do a blog post, respond to social media comments, research a product, make calls, or just make a list for later on. I think the mental break helps me to be more focused for the remainder of my work day.
After work, two nights a week I head Uptown for class.
I usually dread going, but once I get there, it's like being at home. It's weird because I literally have to shut off my right left brain and turn on the right. It's really awesome when I'm taking a design or art class, but when it's an architecture class....not so much. It can be hard to focus on all of those lines and dimensions at 8:30 at night. Several hours later and I'm heading home, wondering what's for dinner. Sad but true. You'd think a Registered Dietitian would plan meals, right?
I try to respond to emails before bed and then I get ready to do it all again the next day.
Needless to say my weekends are chocked full of to do lists, meetings, pick-ups, drop-offs, shopping trips and HOMEWORK, hence the comment from one of my followers that inspired this post.
I can't complain though. Yes, it gets a bit crazy and I often get overwhelmed, but if this is where life has me right now, I plan to fully enjoy the ride. Lunch breaks over... gotta run. ; )
