Today’s post from FLYTIP was an open topic choice. While I was in bed, planning for the next day, I was trying to think of topics. This one popped right up. All the time I think about what my ideal day would be like. What would I do? What would I read? So I thought this was the perfect time for some wishful thinking.
My ideal day would consist of waking up, on the right side of the bed of course, and making some tea. Then I would have some breakfast (fruits and pancakes) with Instagram. Every day I try to be on it 20 minutes per day. Afterwards I would answer emails, reply to comments and begin my reading chunk. I would split up my reading into before lunch and after lunch reaching for about 100 pages each session. For lunch I would have a light lunch with my partner and an episode of our favorite tv show. Then I would begin my second session. If I had just finished a book, I would fill this section with reviews, or writing discussion posts, like this one. Then I would make dinner and read some more before bed (with absolutely no goal in mind). This is what an ideal day would be like.
Waking up, sometimes on the wrong side of bed, and getting only tea – no breakfast. Then I read for way too long, skip lunch and am incredibly grouchy. Finally I scrounge together some sort of food, totally unhealthy and with much more tears than necessary. I read for a huge chunk more till I, again, forget about dinner. Luckily my partner has heard my stomach for the last hour, and started dinner. I wash my hands, straighten my pajamas, and get into dinner preparation mode. We make dinner, eat while watching a movie, and then I read until my eyes shut of their own accord. If my partner isn’t there to remind me about food, it’s a vastly different day, without food.
