A Day in My Life During Quarantine

I cannot believe I have been in quarantine for almost a week now. I survived this far. This is what my day looks like now. A new routine has consumed my everyday life.

7:30 a.m.

I am not (really) a morning person. My morning usually starts at 7:30. I get up, make my bed, and go straight to the bathroom to wash my face and brush my teeth. Next, I prepare a cup of coffee. I like it creamy white, but I like white caramel more. Then go to the rooftop for a daily dose of fresh air, sunshine, and exercise to get my blood flowing.

The sun feels comforting.

I have been doing this for quite a while now.

8:00 a.m.

I go straight to the bathroom to take a warm bath and prepare for the day ahead. I wear house clothes all the time.

I am an introvert at heart. I love being at home.

9:00 a.m.

I look over and prioritize my to-do lists, respond to messages and emails, and eat breakfast, starting with a bowl of cereals, sitting cross-legged with my computer in my lap. Usually I have cereals, oatmeals, or anything on-the-go on weekdays. I go for corned beef, toasted bread, and eggs on the weekend.

Each morning, this has been my routine.

11:00 a.m.

I try not to spend much time on the internet reading or watching the news. I have a couple of breaks in between.

Noon

What is available in my pantry? For today’s lunch, I am getting Spanish sardines, some veggies, and apple. Either I am taking a few minutes to work on my blog or I am running some errands.

1:30 p.m.

I continue working on anything and everything I need to get done. I work on pending projects I have. I spend most of the time dutifully responding to my colleagues’ initial inquiries. During also this time, I aimlessly plan out the next day. In between, I have a little chit chat with my 6-months old nephew.

While I am working, I will usually snack on something like Combos or Le-mond (try this one they taste the same), butter cookies, smoothie (no ice), or coffee. I do love snacking in between. I also love roasted peanuts in between emails.

5:00 p.m.

Every afternoon I try to spend 10 to 15 minutes outdoors to get some fresh air while doing stretches then go straight to the bathroom for another warm bath. I consistently bathing twice a day.

6:00 p.m.

Evenings are my favorite time of the day. Before eating dinner, I binge watch for about two hours. I am currently watching the last couple episodes of the Kingdom. Then I make more family phone calls.

8:00 p.m.

I made spaghetti with lots of cheese for today’s dinner. I usually read or blog after dinner. Either of the two.

Midnight

I go to sleep at about midnight. I have been trying to go to bed earlier but have not succeeded so far.


I always look forward to waking up and starting a new day. How is your day so far?
