DAY IN MY LIFE | HIGH SCHOOL BLOGGER

This post is going to be so fun for two reasons! Number one, I’ve always wanted to do a day in my life post and I’m finally getting around to doing it. Number two, this is a collab with one of my best blogging friends Zainab. She’s also sharing a day in her life, so go read her post here (:

My days are usually pretty busy and I don’t spend a ton of time blogging during the week (I write a lot of posts on saturdays – i’m writing this on a saturday in fact haha) but I’m going to share a typical school day in the life for me. My school is in person which I love but it also means I have to wake up early 😦 This will be super real/a totally normal day!


all pictures in this post are from pinterest and aren’t my actual morning so if you’re wondering why it looks so perfect that’s why haha

I wake up around 5:50 or 5:45 every morning depending on what time I set my alarm for. After doing my skincare and brushing my teeth I spend time with God, usually reading the bible, praying, and sometimes journaling as well.

I then get ready for the day, which usually doesn’t take me too long! I haven’t really been wearing makeup to school often and recently I haven’t been using as much heat on my hair just to let my hair/skin breath. We also wear a uniform (and I lay out my clothes at night) so I don’t have to pick out my outfit for the day.

Most days I will eat breakfast. Since it’s about 6:30 in the morning I’m usually not very hungry but I do try and eat something so I won’t be hungry later. I eat a lot of different things for breakfast (read my post here on easy, simple, and delicious breakfast ideas!) but recently I will either have cereal, make an egg, peanut butter toast, or yogurt.

We leave for school at 7:05 and I usually get home around 4:15. We live pretty far away from school (30 minutes without traffic) so that’s why we have to leave early and don’t get home until later. As soon as I get home I usually fill up my water bottle and have a snack then practice violin for 15-25 minutes. I am really trying to make that a habit, it can be really hard to be consistent with practicing but I play so much better when I practice obviously!

Next I do any homework/projects and study for any upcoming tests or quizzes. Depending on the amount of work I need to do, this takes me between 20 minutes to 2 hours. I have been trying to do a little bit each day for bigger projects or assignments that are spread out over several days. If I don’t have a lot of homework I usually spend this time working on blog stuff!

This year, I have been sectioning off about an hour to an hour and a half each evening where I just spend time with my family! I try to start this at about 6 pm, and during this time I eat dinner, do devotions with my family, and try to be off of my phone and everything so that I can fully spend time with them.

At about 7 or 7:30 I head back upstairs to do my workout! I have been trying to workout every day (except sundays… girl needs a break) for at least 15 minutes and sometimes up to an hour. Check out my favorite free workout youtube channels post here where I share all of my current favs! For the past few days I’ve been doing Holly Dolke and Sami Clarke’s workouts and they have been so good. I always feel so good after I get my workout in even if I don’t really want to do it.

Obviously after getting all sweaty I need to shower, so I do that and get dressed in some comfy clothes/put my hair in a bun and do my skincare. Unless I have any major homework I haven’t finished or a really important test to study for, I try to not work on schoolwork or anything, and keeping it to a specific part of the day has been really helped my productivity.

I usually spend time on my phone/instagram for the first time all day during this time which honestly I am so happy about because I used to spend 2+ hours on insta and now I really only spend 20-40 at the max! Check out my post on practical ways to limit your screen time/spend less time on your phone here. Before I do that I always pack my lunch! This year we have to pack our lunches because the lunchroom is closed due to covid restrictions, so it’s super important that I do this every evening.

Honestly for the rest of the night I just chill/read/go on instagram until about 9:30 when I head upstairs and brush my teeth and go to bed! This girl needs her sleep and I actually love going to bed early (haha i’m such a grandma lol).

anyway that’s a day in my life (: it changes day to day but most days are like that to be honest! I don’t blog every day (mostly on saturdays like I said) but for example I’m finishing up this post at about 5:30 pm on a school day right now! I didn’t have a ton of homework so I’m spending my time on my laptop 🙂

  1. This was so fun to read!! 💖💖 I love seeing what other people’s everyday lives look like.
    I usually get up around 5:00-5:30 a.m. to get a head start on school…I can do school anytime I want since I’m home-schooled. 😀 I’ll eat breakfast around 7:00 a.m., then do school until 12:00 p.m. Then I’ll eat lunch, and usually I’ll finish school around 2:30 p.m. I usually help with my younger sisters or dinner, read, blog, do some extra school, or clean after I finish for the day.

      1. Awww, I always wished I had a lot of siblings. Having a big family always seemed like so much fun to me especially like the Weasleys in HP:) I have two siblings so, not that much😂

  2. I love this post, your day in your life sounds very similar to mine. For the most part I get up around 6( earlier if I can) and I also do my devotions and prayer in the morning! Hahaha, I’m also such a grandma because I’ve always self inflicted a bed time for myself. I usually like to go to bed between 10 and 10:30 so, I’m amazed your in bed by 9:30!
    Thanks for sharing this post, I had a lot of fun reading it and the pictures that went along were great 👍
