A Day in My Life || College Life || Freshman Year 2019

Hey guys! Today I have a blogpost that I’m really excited about*! You got to follow me around a day in my life as a college student!

*though to be fair this was a more exciting blogpost in my head than in execution; my life is actually pretty boring, now that I look at it oopsA Day in My Life

My mornings usually start off pretty slowly: this semester, my classes don’t start until 11am, which is reaaaaaally nice. I like to try to be out the door by 9, though, so that I can get some study time in before class. Before I leave, I wake up, get ready for the day, make some coffee, and make my bed.

Then, I usually go do work while eating breakfast in the diner. Sometimes, I’m lazy and go back to my room after eating breakfast and do work there, though I get decidedly less done when I’m in my room.

I like to sit in the diner for a couple hours, and (hopefully) get some work done, then I head to class! I have between two to five hours of class a day, depending on the day. They’re usually split up in two blocks: one in the morning or early afternoon, and then one in the evening. Some days, I also have orchestra, which is always really fun!

Walking to class takes anywhere from five to twenty minutes, and I put on some music or a podcast to listen to. (I’m looking for podcast recommendations btw: let me know your favorites!). Sometimes I have classes with my friends, which is always really fun!

After my first block of classes, ending by 1pm or 3pm, depending on the day, I go back to my dorm to eat lunch and to relax a little bit before my evening classes. This is when I usually do my Bible reading, journal (if I’m feeling extra motivated) clean my room, and take a shower as well (the showers are a lot less crowded in the afternoon than they are in the morning).

My roommate is usually out so I get the room to myself then. If I have some spare time, I find some friends and study/hang out with them. Some days I don’t go back to my dorm, and instead find a quiet corner to study.

After my evening class, I usually eat dinner and hang out with friends. I also do my homework due that night or the next day. I got lucky this semester: if I budget my time right, I only have one assignment to do every night. If I have an exam the next day, I study for them as well. If I have any spare time, I read a book or work on blogging.

My roommate and I usually open up our room for a sort of study hall/hang out spot after dinner, so it’s always a fun time hanging out and studying together with our friends. Sometimes–usually on the weekends–we watch a movie after everyone is done with their work.

So there you have it! A day in my life as a college (!!!) student! It’s really not as interesting as I hoped it’d be, but I hope it gives you a look into what my life as a college student looks like!


What does a day in YOUR life look like? Are you in college, in high school, or out of school? What is your favorite podcast? Let me know in the comments!

    Your schedule sounds amazing to be honest! My classes start at 8am and end anywhere from 12:20pm to 4pm. And 4pm is THE WORST. I stay at home with my parents so one way commute takes me an hour, removing two hours of my day just like that. I try to listen to pump up music or podcasts but I usually just end up sleeping in the bus, or fiddling with my phone. I think the worst part is that our schedules, with the Indian education system, are so full that we don’t study everyday. In fact, I can very honestly tell you, I study only one day before. I had my internal tests (we have 3 every semester) where we have 2 one and a half hour tests a day with a 2 hour gap. And I study both the subjects either the day before or on that day. This is stressful for me, and I’m someone who is usually calm before exams and tests. I wish I could have your schedule haha.
