My daily routine

Published October 14, 2014 by Iphis of Scyros

It varies by the day of the week, like for most people….though not in the same way that it does for most people.


  1. I get up.  The timing varies.
  2. I feed the cats.
  3. The rest of the “getting up” routine.  (Breakfast, et cetera…)
  4. I sit down and start reading this week’s book(s).
  5. About noon, I feed the cats again, then have my lunch.
  6. After lunch, I resume reading.
  7. Sixish, I feed the cats again, and have dinner.
  8. At some point in the evening, I go online, post here, maybe check my e-mail, stuff like that.
  9. Most nights, I take a bath.
  10. Otherwise, it’s more reading.  (Though I also read in the bath…)
  11. About midnight, I give the cats their bedtime feed, and go to my room for the night.
  12. Finally feeling like I’ve given my classwork its due attention, I spend an hour or so on my novels, if I have the remaining strength.
  13. I go to bed.
  14. Back to 1.

The one exception is on Sunday, when lunch is with my parents, followed by watching the new episode of “Doctor Who”.

Tuesday:  depending on the week’s reading, it can follow the Friday-Monday pattern, or the Wednesday pattern.


  1. I get up.  The timing varies.
  2. Feed the cats.
  3. Just like the other list, morning stuff.
  4. I start working on my paper.
  5. Yeah, lunch for me, lunch for the cats.  (Not in that order.)
  6. Back to work on the paper!
  7. If the paper is going well, I take some time off to go to my brother’s place and watch the previous night’s episode of “Agents of SHIELD”
  8. Feed the cats and have dinner.
  9. Hopefully by this point the paper is finished, and I can spend more leisurely time online.
  10. Bath, and other usual stuff.
  11. Same as 11-14 on the Friday-Monday list.

Thursday looks a lot like Wednesday, except the work on the paper is more in the lines of polishing, and the afternoon and early evening are taken up with going to class.

Obviously, there are exceptions to the routine.  It’s peppered with going shopping–either for groceries, cat food, or in a vain attempt to slake my insatiable urge to collect dolls–and sometimes I take time off that I can’t afford in order to play the odd video game.  Or maybe to go to a movie.  (Though there hasn’t been a whole lot of that…)  And, of course, I have to do other odd jobs around the house, like cleaning the cats’ litter boxes, doing my laundry, all that tedious stuff.

For the most part, though, the lists I just gave sum up the majority of my experiences since classes started at the end of August.

Hence the fact that most days I don’t have anything particularly interesting to post here.

I had hoped that keeping a public, daily journal like this would force me to go out and actually do things.  But that was before I realized just how long it was going to take me to do the weekly readings.  If I’m going to survive graduate school, I’ve got to find a way to read faster.  Or, more accurately, I need to find a way to read this stuff without my mind wandering off and forcing me to re-read huge paragraphs over and over again.  That’s the real drag on my time…
