A Day in the Life: September 2015
A Day in the Life is a monthly linkup where bloggers document their daily life on a designated day each month to show what a typical day is like. To find out more, click here.
I was a bit reluctant on adding a weekend day to A Day in the Life because I don’t do much on the weekend, but perhaps people wonder what I do on the weekends anyway, and this is supposed to be a glimpse into my life after all. 🙂
Here is my day in a series of small but precious accomplishments, highlighted by subheadings.
I hugged someone I love ^O^
Waking up to someone you love is something I never experienced until this year. If you have a connection to someone, it can be a warm welcome to your morning. Nick usually stays over at mine on Fridays. I woke up quite early for a Saturday but neither of us got up until much later. I prefer to get up earlier on the weekends especially if I have a lot to do, but I think this weekend is a bit more relaxed in comparison to others.
Nick and I ate breakfast, which was some pastries my dad got from his friend, who I think owns a bakery. I had some white chai tea, which I got a sample of from T2 a couple of months ago.
I got rid of some band shirts
I vacuumed my bed and cleaned some of the open surfaces of my room. I also got rid of a handful of t-shirts. I got rid of some band shirts which I said was something I was going to try to do this month. I got rid of anything that didn’t quite fit anymore or was getting worn out.
I did a crap-ton of laundry
I did a lot of laundry today as well, with help from Nick and Brandon. We don’t do our washing every single day so it usually rounds out to one load a week. I did two loads since it was such a nice sunny day and we had a lot of thick jumpers and pants that wouldn’t fit in the first load.
I cooked a salmon fillet
For lunch we cooked up some hash browns and pies from the freezer. I found a salmon fillet that I joyfully cooked on the stove, but because I hadn’t given it enough time to thaw, the thick parts were still raw on the inside. I used the microwave to warm it up and it tasted really, really good, though the thinner and more fully cooked parts ended up being far more delicious.
I washed and folded a basket of clothes
I’m staying at Nick’s tonight and tomorrow night, and Nick and I decided to get to his house by 5pm so I could buy the new Apple iPhone 6s as soon as it became available. However we were a bit delayed since I really wanted to get the first load of clothes off the line and fold them. At least I did that though! I felt accomplished.
I pre-ordered an iPhone 6s
We weren’t going to arrive until after 5pm, so I pulled out my laptop while we were still in the car, connected to the internet and refreshed the Apple website. It continued telling me to check back, so I just kept refreshing the page. Eventually we just did it on Nick’s laptop when we arrived at his place. For some reason the page was loading on his laptop and not mine.
I pre-ordered the rose gold iPhone 6s, and got 64GB of space, which should be enough. I have over 60GB of music but I really don’t think I will be putting all of that on my phone since I tend to stream online now.
I bought two rings for the price of $0
Nick watched some of Rick Steves’s travel videos to prepare for our trip to Europe next year. He had been doing that for most of the day. I found it useful just to listen in the background while I replied to some emails and read some blog posts, as well as do a couple of things as part of my staffing role at The Fanlistings Network. I also I browsed The Peach Box – they have a weekend sale for spring. I wanted to see if there was anything on my wishlist worth getting. I realised I had a $39 coupon code that I received from them when a bracelet I bought from them had broken. I used it to get two rings, and ended up not having to pay anything. 😛
We showered then ate dinner, while watching a video about London. That will be early on in our trip, and it’s probably what I am most excited about. I have wanted to go to London for years.
I wrote this blog post
After dinner we drove to pick up Nick’s sister from work. It was getting kind of late and we considered watching a movie before bedtime but we changed our mind as we wouldn’t be able to fit it in. We were already tired. 😜
