Reality of Student Life


It seems as if a lot of millennials are hustling in order to make their dreams a reality. If there was one title I would refer to myself (and every other girl out there making her dreams come true) it would be girl boss. Just because I am not the owner of some multi-millioextrn dollar company doesn’t mean I can’t be considered a girl boss. To me, being a girl boss means that I am not going to settle for anything less than what I want. Ever.

As a college student and working at a nursing home. I know what it’s like to have a full time job and still work extremely hard on my side hustle (blogging).  People regularly ask me how I am handling school and maintaining a job at the same time.  There are also others who don’t really understand what all goes into being a full time worker and student, so they don’t understand why I get stressed at times. Well, friends, today I am going to show you a typical day in the life of a college student.  Although school is over for the semester, I am working full time during the week, so this schedule will pretty much stay the same. Also, please keep in mind that this is just a general day in the life and since life is always unexpected, these tasks may vary.

8:15 am: Alarm goes off

I originally set my alarm clock at this time so it would give me time to do some kind of workout in the mornings…which lasted about a week.  Now, whenever my phone yells at me to wake up I ease into “awake” mode by scrolling through social media (especially instagram, since I love pictures and it doesn’t require too much reading in the morning).

8:45-9:00 am: Get ready for the day

This part is kind of self-explanatory, but my typical activities include taking a shower (because you know, I don’t want to smell), fixing my hair, and putting minimal makeup on. I will then pack my lunch, eat a bowl of cereal and make a cup of coffee because of course coffee is a necessity.

10:00-4:00 pm: Work Work Work Work Work Work

Work and school are pretty time consuming, so I never have time to do any work except for my lunch break.

5:00-8:00 pm: Get some serious blogging done

Depending on the day of the week and whether or not I have plans for the evening, I’ll usually devote some hours at the end of the day to get some real blogging and planning done.  This ranges from brainstorming new ideas for future projects and also checking out other types of blogs.

8:00 pm: Netflix and Chill

At this time, it is usually my Netflix and chill time. I like to just change into my comfy pants, grab a few snacks and get in bed and watch my favorite tv shows and movie. At the moment I am watching Gossip Girl, which happens to be one of my favorite tv shows.

11:00 pm: Unwinding

Although I would really love to work until the minute I hit the hay, it’s really not good for me to not take a little time to unwind from the day and just relax.  I use this time to read and drink some tea.

My days are pretty jam packed, but since I love both my job and blogging, it doesn’t seem like a bad gig for the time being!
