I was thinking about this post for a while, and I wasn’t entirely sure how to do it. I don’t have a specific routine, so this is more of a “what I like to do in the morning to take it chill and not start schoolwork before way later than I should”. You still with me? Let me take you through it then.
Unless I have specific plans for the day, I don’t set an alarm. The weekend is the only two days where I get to enjoy waking up when I want, and I take full advantage of that. However, I still wake up between 9 and 10 am most days. When I finally gather the courage to let my arm escape the cocoon of my duvet and turn on the light, I usually look a little something like this. I usually don’t smile this much though, as I can be a bit grumpy in the morning.
The first thing I do, sometimes even before turning on the light, is grab my phone and start my scrolling through social media. As I live in Europe basically everything on my social medias happen while I’m asleep, as I seem to only follow Americans. Oh well. The social medias that I check are Instagram, Twitter, Youtube and Tumblr. In fact, one of my favourite things to do on lazy weekend mornings is to watch youtube videos for hours, especially while eating breakfast and just lazing in bed. One of my favourites these days is Essiebutton and her vlogs.
When I finally manage to tear myself away from my phone, I usually grab my bullet journal and look over the list for today, which I have a habit of making the day before. This way I know what I’ve got to do, which blog post I’m writing and if I have any plans for the day. This is super helpful so that I actually know what to do when I get my arse out of bed and start working.
On Saturdays I always put up a blog post, and that usually gets written in the morning that day, before I get out of bed. Pictures I usually take either the day before, or later in the day, depending on how much time I have and all. But either way, the blog post mostly gets written before I do much, except if I get hungry enough to trot into the kitchen and get breakfast started. If I get properly hungry in the morning I get extremely nauseous, and that is just not the best way to start the day.
Eventually I bring myself to get out of bed, grab my computer and move to the kitchen. Sometimes I bother to change out of my pyjamas for this, sometimes not. For breakfast I usually just have a slice of bread with something on it and some tea, because that is how simple Norwegian breakfasts mostly are. However, today I actually had cereal and just made tea as usual.
And as I’m not going to start my work for today, I think that marks the end of my morning routine. Of course I also brush my teeth and maybe get dressed, but you know, I don’t need to show you that.
So what do you guys do in the morning? I’m curious!
