Let those of us who do, fall backwards!
:). Hello writers. In the states an old tradition that dates back to some really cool history (depending on who you ask, I am somewhat of a dork in my special interests, one being history) and which has drawn a lot of attention in recent years... the changing of the clocks. Where I am in the US we 'spring' an hour forward when winter is at an end and we 'fall' back an hour as we transition into winter. SO my challenge is... you are given one extra hour Sunday night November 1st of this year at 2am. How would you fill that 'extra' hour, what would you do during this sanctioned time traveling? I plan to send a lil 'juice' to my favorite. Have fun and I look forward to responses! :) Oh... ya know what...If you are someone who has in the past voted (yes it has been on a ballot or two) and you feel strongly about the abolishment of the tradition, please by all means state your case... but please live in an area that is effected by the practice. Perhaps 'juice' will come to a great argument as well. yeah!
Honestly, I don't get to sleep much between writing, school, and work.
This is legit my weekly routine unless I have a specific day off:
Get up, Go to my first class, get ready for work. Leave about 30 minutes early in case there's traffic of something. Get to work 15-30 minutes early. Skip my 2nd and 3rd clas because I'm working. Get home. Watch recordings of my classes (which are about 1 1/2 hours each so that's 3 hours of recordings.) take a small break. Start on actual course work for 4 different courses. Write whilst working on the course work. Finally go to bed anywhere around midnight to 2 AM. Toss and turn for an hour. Then I get up 8-8:30 again that morning. So I average about 4 hours of sleep. Oh, did I mention I help cook too?
On my days off of work it's a bit different. So if I don't work but have school work, this is how it goes: Around 8 to 8:30 I wake up and start my first class. Then I do my class work for said class. I go to my next class and do that classes' work (if I can, my second class is always messing up on the actual course.) Then I go on "lunch" which is always me doing MORE work. I go to my 3rd class do that course work. Then my 4th class doesn't have actual classes, just work. So I do that course's work. Then I start cleaning. Then I write. Then I cook. Then I clean more. I typically go to bed around 11 to midnight.
And when I don't have school OR work, (a rarity because I have to work on crap for school on the weekends too), I sleep in anywhere from 9 to noon. I get up and typically, I'll chill a bit and then I start cleaning. I'll make lunch and eat. Clean some more. Write a little bit. Then clean more. Just for the hell of it because I can get more writing done on these days, I stay up and write more and don't go to bed anywhere from 11 to 1.
Oh and while I do everything (except working at my actual job) I am also texting my boyfriend.
I have to somehow manage to fit showering, eating, and sleeping into my schedule. And I get 2 days off of work, typically one day "off" of school that I don't even fully get off.
All that being said, I'd do one of 3 things. 1. sleep. 2. write. 3. talk to my boyfriend more. And really, I'd probably do both 2 and 3 if I could.
