6:00 A.M. Alarm blares.I should get up
6:30 A.M. My gym clothes are right there! I laid them out on my chair last night!
7:00 A.M. I should at least get up and do a workout DVD.
7:45 A.M. Too late to work out; might as well cozy up and sleep some more.
8:00 A.M. Now I have to get up or else I'll be late.
8:10 A.M.:I drink coffee.
9:00 A.M. – 4:00 P.M.: Since I work for an organization that serves as a resource to women who often work in what I think of as high burnout fields, I try to attend to my own well-being too by not eating lunch at my desk! I take a break to eat, and then I ride my bicycle to the office a few miles away.
4:00 P.M.-8:00 P.M.I try to have the more detail oriented parts of my work done by this time, so now I make a list of posts to work on for our Tumblr site in the next two weeks, and look over some blogs we follow by other women and organizations in our field, choosing some content to share on our Facebook page and scheduling those posts.I also look ahead on our calendar to see what events we have coming up that will need email announcements. We do fewer programs over the summer, so there isn’t much on the horizon until fall, so I can breathe a bit of a sigh of relief.Then I read through the interns’ weekly written reports, which they submitted to both the ED and myself yesterday.The last thing I do before I leave for the day is check my to do list to make sure everything urgent has been attended to, and to make note of anything I need to prioritize the next day. I try to be out the door and headed home by 9:30 P.M.
