5:00am : Wake. I’ve lived in the same neighborhood for over twenty years. Watched the sun rise from this location on my way to elementary school, high school, and now work.
6:30 am - 4:30 pm : Work. The sign above my desk, in case I get confused. I’m a programmer by day. It’s a good job. My degree is in creative writing, though so most days I feel like I’m just faking it.
5:00 pm : Welcome. My dog Bexley meets me at the door. We used to walk together every day but I’ve hurt my back recently, so we just roll around on the floor together for awhile.
5:30 pm : Cook. The view from my kitchen window while cooking dinner. My family and I eat together and watch shows in the evening. We have a schedule, one series running for each day of the week. Just like in the old days when we had to check the tv guide. I like rituals like this.
9:00 pm : Sleep. Actually probably later on most days, but nine is my goal. I journal and read before bed each night.
