I hope you’re having a great day!! I am currently writing this post aboard a Luther shuttle bus, heading toward home for the fall break! As I’ve said in previous posts, it’s really nice that Luther provides convenient transportation so that I can be with my family during the long weekend.
But before I’m home and away from my typical Luther schedule, I thought it might be fun to recap what that typical schedule looks like for me! When I was in high school, I always wondered what daily college life would entail, so I thought it would be fun to share what a day in my life with you, like Catherine did so excellently on her blog last year. So, without further ado, here is what I did yesterday:
6:20am – I wake up, shower, and get ready for the day.
7:20am – I head to the Union and get a to-go bagged breakfast. Today, I have a breakfast sandwich (two delicious eggs between halves of a biscuit), oatmeal with fresh blueberries, and a banana.
8:00am – After breakfast, I go to my World Pottery Class, where I put the finishing touches on my hand-built pitcher, start drying my wheel-thrown bowls for trimming next week, and throw an eight-inch cylinder for a homework assignment.
9:40am – I head to my work study job at Preus Library and finish digitally coloring a poster I drew for Homecoming.
11:00am – Once I’ve clocked out from my library shift, I walk over to Valders Hall of Science for my Psychology of Health and Illness class, where we’re currently learning about the relationship between social support and health.
12:30pm – After class, I go to lunch with friends and eat some yummy turkey and barley soup, along with fresh fruits and veggies.
1:15pm – In addition to working in the library, I work in the psychology department office on Thursdays and Fridays, which is really nice, since I’m a psychology major. Today, one of my professors gave me a book called The Forgiveness Project that he thought I might like to read.
2:30pm – I head back to my dorm room to work on homework and discover that my RA has left goodie bags of Halloween candy outside of everyone’s door in our hallway. Our RA is the sweetest!
3:30pm – I walk downstairs to the Center for Global Learning to schedule an appointment to learn about study abroad opportunities. The office is literally right below my room in Larsen, so it’s very conveniently located!
4:15pm – Every Thursday, I go to a meeting with Professor Toussaint’s psychology lab to talk about how research is going. This semester, I’ve been entering survey data mailed to Luther from all over the world into a statistical program so it can be analyzed.
5:30pm – I head to dinner with friends. I can’t remember what I ate, but it was good.
7:00pm – Dr. Bishop gives a really informative talk about applying for graduate school in psychology, so I attend.
8:00pm – Ballroom dance practice is in the Regents Center, so I run over there and start learning how to dance Standard Quickstep.
9:00pm – I walk over to the Center for the Arts to check up on my pottery. It’s getting a little dry, so I spritz my work with water and rewrap it.
9:30pm – Upon returning to Larsen Hall, where I live, I finish up my homework for the night and go to bed!
So that was a typical day in my life! Obviously, not every day is quite so busy, and the typical day differs for every Luther student. But I love that there is always something going on to keep me occupied, and there's never a dull moment here!
And now, I am off on my fall break! I hope you have a fantastic weekend, and I’ll figuratively see you next week!
