"A Day in the Life"

This past weekend one of my Instagram followers mentioned how busy I always am. She said it seems like I never stop.  Come to think of it, I get comments like that quite a bit.  Especially, the "When do you sleep?" one.  I have to say that I honestly don't (usually) feel like I'm moving at a break neck pace.  Granted, I don't have a lot of down time.  Who am I kidding?  It's practically nonexistent, but I enjoy it all so much that it just doesn't seem like work. 

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.  ;  )

As the saying goes, you can sleep when you're dead. :)
