If you’ve read my Day in the Life of a DC Intern post, you probably already have a good idea of how this post is going to be structured. Essentially, I’m giving y’all a peek into my day via Snapchats – I always love being nosy and seeing what other people get up to during the day, so I figured I’d share what the average day in my life at the University of Georgia looks like.
8:30 a.m.: Pure Barre class
I love morning workouts. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, I don’t have my first class until 10:10, so I can fit in a workout before going to class. Waking up early enough to get to the Pure Barre studio can be a bit of a struggle (especially when I’ve been up late doing homework the night before), but it’s also a great way to really wake me up and get me going for the day).
10:10 a.m.: Economics of Law class
Since this “day in my life” is from a Wednesday, I only had one class – Econ of Law. Tuesdays and Thursdays are generally my more intensive days class-wise, while Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays are a little more laid-back.
11:30 a.m.: Internship
This semester, I’m interning at a domestic violence organization in Athens, doing a lot of the behind-the-scenes nonprofit work. I want to work in a D.C. nonprofit after graduation, so this is really great experience for me. I intern for about 15 hours a week here, and then I also do a little extra work for a nonprofit called HealthMPowers on the side. Between school, those two internships, and blogging, you can’t ever say I’m not busy.
7:00 p.m.: Dinner with the parents
This isn’t a typical occurrence, but it just so happened that my parents came to Athens and took me out to dinner this day. Only being 45 minutes away from home is really nice on days like this; I can guarantee I wouldn’t be eating this well if they weren’t treating me to it. On any given evening though, I’m usually either doing something with a student org, working on homework, or hanging out with friends.
9:30 p.m.: Homework!!
After my parents left, I went back to studying and getting some work done. I never really have time to get things done during the day, so the evenings and weekends are when I get 90% of my work done. I’m usually at my apartment or one of my favorite coffee shops in Athens – it all just depends on what I’m in the mood for.
So that’s what a typical day in my life looks like! Nothing too glamorous, but definitely busy. (Also, it’s slowly dawning on me that this is my last year of college and my fall semester is almost over… what??? Where did all of this time go??)
