A Day in Life


Her alarm buzzed at 6.30am, 6.45 & 7am only to be turned off and pull the blankets to cover her face, even without blinking the eyes. She know there’s going to be more to jerk her out of bed and promptly that rang at 7.30am.
Even without properly opening her eyes she took her phone, changed to silent mode (the notification sound irritates her in the morning) and connected to WIFI to scan through the messages. As usual the WriteTribe group is fully active with more than 100 messages, she thinks while keeping her phone aside.
After turning, tossing and stretching she takes herself out of the bed to the washroom after the morning prayers, grabbing the book on her bed stand.
Once out of washroom with a “Chechi Kaapi” scream she slammed her room shut and within 20 minutes she’s out of her home with another scream, “Amma Bye. Breakfast venda.”

Once at work, her time flies with the daily to-do list and works. But once in a while she feels that a 9-5 job was much easier to heart and brains than the own ventures as there’s no pressure except for deadlines.
But the freedom one enjoys, and the excitement and adrenaline rush to do something new and the happiness when good things happen is immense. At that moment for her every ounce of pressure feels really small.

By afternoon one thing she feels grateful for is a home and mom, where a warm lunch will be waiting for her everyday even at 4pm. 
The break time is usually hooked up with blogging, reading or TV time.
After break, work resumes by 6pm which can extend till 10-11pm depending upon the scenario. 

Once back home and done with the day, after a quick dinner, either she slobs onto her favorite corner of the couch with a movie running or she retires to bed with a book until every drop of energy is oozed out. Her daily life is a routine. Sometimes it freaks her out fearing its monotonous, making her forget that it's OK to meltdown. But most of the days, there's something good in a routine to look forward. 

And that's Sleep

  3. Full day. Interesting touch writing in third person. Also, a nine-to-five isn't always nirvana.

  4. As a kid, we used to look forward to running out of the house and heading off to meet her friends. Growing up, we look forward to the sleep.

  10. I find that the routines are comforting. Any deviation from the same makes us yearn for our same old routine!

  17. A very honest post, Sheethal. In the midst of the monotony, we do love that time with family or writing the blog or reading the book, don't we? I think it's the magic of these things we love that helps us move forward.

  18. That is one hectic routine! I do sometimes tend to check my phone half asleep in the morning, could completely relate to that.
    The mention about writetribe notifications was a classic!
