We have all seen those "Day In A Life" blog posts. In fact I did one at some point in time but I can't find the post and I am too lazy to look more for it. All I know about it is that it was while I was in college. And my life has changed since then and I know y'all are just dying to see what I do during my days.
For me each day looks different from each other. But from week to week they stay the same. I know what I do each day of the week (most of the time) even with the many changes that would happen. I chose Tuesday to show you for a two reasons.
1. It was the day I remembered to take pictures of my day
2. It is was one of my busier days where I have much more going on.
So here it is, what Mosby did on November 4, 2014.
6:30 a.m. Wake up. Check social media. Stretch. Think about what I want to wear that day. Go potty. Get ready for the day.
7:00 a.m. Done getting ready and now reading blogs. Normally I would be cooking breakfast at this time but I was out of food and decided to just go to Dunkin Donuts instead. So I am wasting time till I need to leave. And of course the blog I am reading is another "Day In The Life Post"
7:10 a.m. Leave for Dunkin and work. Make sure to give Brutus kisses goodbye.
7:45 a.m. Get to Lighthouse to start Grief Group at 8. This week we were finishing going over the Biblical references to our topic. I love that we are able to make connections like this for the women. It has become a time where I learn right along with them, which I always love spending time learning in my Bible.
8:50 a.m. Done with group. Remind clients they will be seeing me. Talk to the girls and catch up a little. I always miss so much over the weekends and I love that they want to fill me in. Knowing I am not just their "life coach" but also like a friend. It doesn't happen with all of them, but the ones it does is always great.
9:00 a.m. Get my files and head to my office. Decide I am tired of the clutter and reorganized for a minute. And I finally put something up on my walls! Thursday I plan to bring in some lamps to make the space even better.
9:10 a.m. Go pick up my first client. I say pick up because he is 4 and cannot get to my office on his own. We then proceed to have a tea party, play darts, open the window and watch cars, and play catch with my question soccer ball. Overall I call it an awesome session.
9:55 a.m. Drop my client back off at pre-school. Go back to my office and write in his file. Go potty. Talk to some of the caseworkers, the other counselor there, and prep for my next client.
10:45 a.m. While talking to a caseworker and the other counselor again I mention things I am in need of for my office and Play Therapy room. The other counselor and I are given permission to go to the toy room and find some things I needed. I was SO excited to finally have some baby dolls and Barbies!
11:30 a.m. Second client comes in for her session.
12:15 a.m. Session done. Write in file. As I am wrapping up at Lighthouse I get distracted by other clients. I run back and forth between offices trying to finish up so I can head out.
12:35 a.m. I finally leave LH and head to the grocery store. Half way there I get a reminder on my phone that I have a meeting with my school supervisor at 1:00. So I quickly turn around and make it to the school right on time.
1:30 a.m. Make it to the grocery store. At this point I am starving and just want to go as quickly as possible.
2:00 a.m. Make it home and unload the groceries. Finally sit down and eat the yummy salad I bought for lunch since I was starving at the grocery store and always end up buying myself more food than I need when this happens.
2:30 p.m. Watch Gilmore Girls. Return emails and play on the computer. Mostly spend time of Facebook and blogging. A little homework was done. As in 5 minutes worth. Look at me being an overachiever!
3:00 p.m. I'm exhausted and since I know I have class til 10 p.m. I take a 30 minute nap.
3:30 p.m. Wake up wishing I could keep sleeping. Get my things together for class and pack my dinner.
4:30 p.m. First class of three of the evening. It is my internship class where we get to share about clients and ask important questions. It is also where we all know I do my best blogging and homework.
5:50 p.m. Break for 10 minutes in between classes. Prep with a friend for our presentation during out third class.
6:05 p.m. Back to class and back to blogging. And time to eat. I was pretty happy I brought this sandwich with me. Cubans are my favorite. Also this class is Psychopathology. Definitely one of my favorites and I tend to do a little more listening and little less blogging.
7:50 p.m. Break for 10 minutes before our last class of the night, Spiritual Integration. By this point I am done blogging, done listening, and do not want to present in class. But Cat and I must. I actually didn't mind this presentation on one of my clients. I am always a fan of talking about them when I am allowed to.
9:50 p.m. Done with class and time to head home. All evening I have spent time looking for a sub job and know I will have to wake up early to get one for Wednesday.
10:10 p.m. Make it home and crash on the couch and cuddle with Brutus for a little bit. I know I need to go to bed but I want to watch more Gilmore girls.
