This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish.
Heeey people! So just a quick announcement: future discussion posts will be a rotation of Celine, Larissa and myself. So next week, Larissa will be here with a post and then Celine and so on. 😀 Perhaps, when possible we will do all three of us on a specific topic.
Back in 2013, I had a truck load of time to blog. I barely had any homework (and it was really easy stuff as well) and my school was right next to my house. I slept late, and there wasn’t that much pressure on my academics. But 2014 was and still is a significant milestone in my life. I’ve moved to a selective school (meaning homework homework homework) and I spend over 3 hours on public transport on average in a day. And by the time actually manage to get home, there’s a nice stack of homework staring at me.
Anyway, I named my discussion post “Discussing Through Midnight” originally because the first time I wrote my post, it was around 2am in the morning. I was bored and this idea had just surfaced. And also, because it goes well with my blog name, lol.
Life As A Blogger in 2014? It’s hard. I love blogging and I don’t want to ever stop but I’m going to be posting less and less as the years go by into Year 11 & 12. I know that’s like 2 freaking years away but it’s never felt so close O.O Gah, I keep going off on a tangent. This was meant to be a post to show what my daily routine is like. *blogger fail*
6:00am: My first alarm goes off. It’s the annoying ‘Old Car Horn’ one on the iPhone because well…it’s annoying and crazy loud. Pretty much the only one that I can hear. What can I say? I’m a deep sleeper.
6:05am: Second alarm goes off. Another five mins later, so does another, and another. The first alarm never works. I wake up back go right back to sleep again.
6:20am: I actually manage to fall out of bed. It is the saddest part of my day. I just want to do this all day:6:55am: I go to school.
8:20am: I get to school. Yep that’s right. It takes me one and a half bloody hours just to get there. I read while I’m on the train. Sometimes I sleep.
3:10pm: School finishes! My school is like a peak hour and today, I had nothing to hold onto while standing on the tram so I was collapsing into everyone. My friends were laughing at my expressions. I make great friends, don’tcha agree?
4:50pm: I make it home. The way back on the train basically consists of me sleeping (again) or reading. I don’t know anyone who goes on my train line from school–which I actually prefer because then I don’t have to waste my time talking to them and use my precious time for reading instead. I legit have no other times to read now. Yes, I know, I am awfully antisocial but sometimes it’s for the best 😛
5:00pm: I sometimes blog first. My posts normally go up at 6:00pm and I suck at scheduling ahead. I sometimes don’t blog at all. Larissa or Celine are way more organised than me. They have posts ready 10 days in advanced. I can be such a terrible blogger.
Somewhere during this I peel my hands off twitter and actually do some homework and play piano
I also have food.
I also do some blog commenting.
10:30pm: Arguing with my co-blogger over at Finding Bliss in Books, Ellis. We have great debates. She recently screenshotted my tweet about saying that I’d post a selfie when it’s my 2nd blogverse. (*EDIT* So did Bec. Cruel, cruel people.) She tells me she won’t forget this and will make sure I do end up posting a selfie. (Probs because then she’ll be able to prove that I’m a 60 year old man in a 14 year old girl disguise) She makes the Internet a miserable place as well ;___;
10:40pm: After winning the argument, I can sleep in peace. (Note how early I sleep now, I used to go to bed at 1am last year. O.O)
So yeah. I have a pretty boring but really different life as a blogger now.
What about you guys? What does your day look like in real life?
