Just for fun, let's compare the schedule of a typical college day (no finals), and my days now that I'm passing the time at home until next weekend, when L. flies back east from California and we both go back to Williamstown for the summer for our internships/fellowships.
Typical Day at Williams
10:00am: Wake up
10:00am-10:30am: Check my email, catch up on my blogroll
10:30am-11:10am: Shower and get ready (including picking out a cute outfit and doing my makeup)
12:35pm-1:00pm: Grab a quick lunch; usually don't finish it
2:30pm-4:30pm: Work at my publishing internship at the art museum
6:00pm-7:00pm: Finally get to relax a little; grab dinner with L. and some friends.
7:00pm-10:00pm: Write a paper, do reading, do a problem set, etc. etc. etc.
10:00pm-1:00am: Work at my on-campus job at the student center info desk
1:00am-2:00am: Do more work, maybe catch up on an episode of How I Met Your Mother or The Office with L.
2:30am: Go to sleep.
Quite a jam-packed day, huh? Now, let's see what a typical day at home looks like.
Typical Day at Home While Between School and Internship
9:00am: Wake up
9:00am-11:00am: Catch up on my blogroll, check my email, online shop, Facebook stalk.
11:00am: Make a soy protein shake and bring it to the living room; curl up on the couch and watch Gilmore Girls on ABC Family. (Yup. This is part of my "routine.")
12:00pm-2:00pm: Go to the gym.
2:00pm: Shower, get dressed (and by "dressed," I'm having a pretty ambitious day if I actually put on real clothes and not sweats and a t-shirt.)
2:30pm-5:00pm: Watch tv, check email some more, Facebook stalk some more.
5:30pm: Mum gets home from work; chat a bit, start dinner
6:00pm-6:30pm: Eat dinner
7:00pm-9:00pm: Watch move tv with Dad. Usually something sci-fi or action. Start to doze off.
9:00pm-9:30pm: Talk to L. because starting at 9pm I have free long distance.
10:00pm: Get into bed and start drifting off, but try to stay awake for Friends on the CW at 11.
11:30pm: Fall asleep.
It looks like the same amount of activities, but guys, don't be fooled. I am one bored girl. Luckily this pit stop of sorts at home only lasts until next Friday, and then L. and I are heading back to Williamstown. And I have some fun things coming up to break it up; tomorrow I'm heading down to Boston to spend some time with Real Life Dan Humphrey (also for a time known as Couple Friend Guy when he and C. were dating, but right now they're not together), and his roommate. We'll go out for dinner and drinks and then I'll stay at their apartment and come back Friday morning. And next week, from Tuesday til Thursday, I'll be heading down to Connecticut to stay with C.
I guess I should also feel a little nostalgic about my lazy summer pitstop at home, since it's actually the last one I'll ever have; next summer at this time, L. and I will be graduating and then staying just long enough to pack up my entire room/life into our cars before we drive across the country to live in L.A. It's definitely enough to make me appreciate being home, but since I'm terrified of laziness/boredom, maybe today will be the day I actually put on real clothes...
