Hola! I’m welcoming my younger sister, Hannah, to the blog. Since it seemed like a lot of people were interested in reading about a day in my mom’s life, I thought it would be fun to have Hannah share her “typical” Monday!
Some background on Hannah: She’s 15-years-old, and in 10th grade at a local Christian school. She runs track, is active in our church, and maintains a 4.0 GPA. She is also one of the funniest people I know 🙂
6:00-7:00 a.m.- “My alarm goes off at 6am, but I’m normally not actually ‘out of bed’ until 6:20/6:30. I probably wouldn’t even get up if my mom wasn’t consistently telling me what time it is, or throwing Brandy (my puppy) onto the bed.”
“Once I finally roll out of bed, I head to the bathroom and wash my face. I then go back to my bedroom, get dressed, put on makeup, and do my hair. This takes me until about 6:40. Next I go out to the living room, drink some coffee, eat breakfast (which is always prepared by amazing mom), and watch TV. Today, in particular, I had a soft pretzel with cheese… I don’t like breakfast foods.”
7:10-8:00 a.m.- “When the clock strikes 7:10, I run (literally) back to the bathroom and brush my teeth. Then I strap on my backpack, grab my gym bag and lunch box, and head out to the bus, which comes at about 7:15. Melissa, my best friend and next door neighbor, and I ride the bus together to our school together. This fun time is filled with us listening to various songs, especially Ed Sheeran music. There are only about 6 or 7 people on our bus, and Melissa and I are two of them, so we tend to be the loudest (oops).”
8:00 a.m.-2:50 p.m.- “When we arrive at school at about 8:05, it’s time to unload my backpack. Then I go through the motions: Homeroom, Biology, Gym (only Mondays and Thursdays), Bible Survey, Spanish, Yearbook, Lunch (my FAVORITE part of the day), Algebra 2, World History, and World Literature.”
2:50-4:30 p.m.- “Once school is over at 2:50, I pack up all of my homework, and head down to the girl’s locker room to get changed for track. We run from about 3:10-4:00, and then lift weights from 4:00-4:30. After this exhausting hour and a half, my mom picks me up, and we drive home.”
“Once I get home, it’s straight to my room so I can do my chiropractor rehab exercises (I am very messed up) and I read my Bible. Currently I am reading through the whole Bible, I started this on January 1st, and I should be done by December 31st. I just recently finished the book of Mark, so I read a little summary of each book of the Bible, one I am finished with it, on my Kindle. I also tend to eat a snack while doing so.”
6:00-8:30 p.m.- “After this I go out to the living room to eat some dinner, tonight I had a chicken stir fry and Sierra Mist, it was AMAZING! By this time it is about 6:00. I then start my butt load of homework and studying.”
8:30-10:00 p.m.- “I normally finish my homework anytime between 8:30 and 10:00. Depending on the homework load, I may or may not have time to watch TV. I usually end up watching recordings of Dancing with the Stars, The VOICE, or 19 Kids and Counting! They’re some of my favorite shows!”
“By this time I am completely exhausted, so I brush my teeth, cross off my calendar, and read my devotional. So, this is what a typical Monday consists of for me, I hope you enjoyed!”
Thanks for sharing Hannah!
I think my favorite past of this post is when she said she literally runs from the couch to brush her teeth before school. I witness this all the time, and it’s hilarious She loves her morning couch time haha!
