A Day in My Life as a College Senior

As you may know, I'm a senior in college at a small liberal arts school in Florida, where I'm studying literature and theology. In addition to taking 16 credits, I work 12 hours a week, as a student worker at the library and also as a writing tutor. As for extracurriculars, I'm part of a household (basically a prayer-based sisterhood... kind of like a small group or the Catholic school version of a sorority?), I sing in the acapella group, and I volunteer as a catechism teacher in a nearby town once a week.

Between homework and all these commitments, not to mention things like eating, sleeping, socializing, and keeping in touch with people back home, you could definitely say college keeps me busy! But it's a good kind of busy (most of the time ;), and I live an enriching, fulfilling, and fun life here at school ~ and I love it.

So let's get a little close-up of that life right now!


Here's a typical Monday or Wednesday for me:

7:00am: Wake up and pray morning prayer with my household

7:15-8:15am: Shower and get ready for the day

8:30am: Eat breakfast at the cafeteria

9:00-11:50am: Do homework, emails, blog stuff, etc. at the library

12:00-1:05pm: Class (20th Century Literature)

1:15pm: Eat lunch

1:45-3:35pm: Do homework, emails, blog stuff, etc. at the library

3:45-4:50pm: Class (Metaphysics)

5:00pm: Go to Mass

5:40pm: Eat dinner

7:00-10:00pm: Work at the library (where, most of time, I can do homework)
  • On Mondays: 7:00-8:00pm: Acapella rehearsal, followed by work
10:00pm: Wind down in my room: watch an episode or two of a show, do spiritual reading, get ready for bed

11:00pm: Go to sleep

So there you have it: a typical Monday or Wednesday in my life as a college senior this semester. Now I'm off to enjoy my much-needed and long-awaited fall break for the next few days!

What does a typical day look like for you?

Sincerely,
~Stephanie
