I played along with one of my favorite Ali Edwards projects, Day in the Life, and documented my Tuesday. I ended up with 55 pictures, all taken with my iPhone 6, that I converted to b&w for something different. I purchased Ali’s DITL kit so I am going to let that be my color when I add the pics to my PL album.
6:40 AM – Before I shower and get ready for the day, I pour a bowl of cereal for Sophie so she can eat while Ella gets dressed. I’ve learned the hard way that the less interaction they have with each other in the morning, the better.
7:12 AM – Hair is up first and, as it is naturally stick straight, I apply some product to help my chemically achieved curls maintain their shape. This stuff does the trick and has an awesome name besides.
7:18 AM – Sophie has a minor meltdown while attempting to comb her hair because a) it’s Tuesday and therefore band day and band day sucks; b) she has to go to school and school sucks; c) her hair is tangled and the brush won’t work, so they both suck; d) Ella looked at her funny and she sucks; e) she is tired and life sucks; f) all of the above, at the same time.
7:37 AM – On Tuesdays, Sophie is dropped off first for band practice (the one pic I missed). Ella gets dropped off after and warned me that I was not allowed to take a picture of her walking into school. I told her I make no promises and took one anyway.
7:55 AM – I arrive at work. I like to park in the last row of the front section of the lot. As I make my way to the building, I catch a glimpse of my shadow and decide a picture of it would be an awesome addition to DITL.
7:56 AM – Due to the nature of the business we do at the company I work for, pictures of the interior of the building are not really an option. The best I can do is a picture of the exterior, so here you go.
10:30 AM – My first break and a chance to play with my new brush pen. I’ve set a goal to work on my hand lettering skills and like to use this time to practice. I think it’s pretty obvious I’m a novice.
My DITL recap will have two more installments. Check back soon for pics of my afternoon and evening.
