A Day In My Life As a High School Student (Freshman Edition)
Welcome to this blog on a day in my life as a high school student (freshman edition)
For the past 30 minutes, I’ve been searching the web for an interesting topic to write a blog on. However, it got me nowhere. And then, 15 seconds ago, I had the idea to write a blog on a day in my life as a high-school student. So, here it is.
This blog is definitely not going to be an “advice” article where I give you tips on how to improve yourself in some way. This blog is simply an article that takes you through a day in my life. You may not be interested in knowing about my routine, and that’s totally fine with me. I guess I’m writing this blog as a way to reflect on my daily schedule and routine.
You’ll find that I am not productive all the time. Yes, I do get distracted. Yes, I do procrastinate. But, even though I’m not the most productive person on Earth, I do like to believe that I am more productive than I am not productive.
For a little background information, I’m a freshman in high school at the time I’m writing this and I’m also part of the JV tennis team. I’m not part of any clubs yet, but outside of school, I partake in a few activities.
This blog will take you through a typical Tuesday in my life. (I honestly don’t know why I chose Tuesday.) But, at the end of the blog, I’ll mention some other tasks I complete on other days of the week.
Without further ado, here’s a day in my life as a high-school student:
6:30 AM: The alarm rings… I click snooze.
6:39 AM: The alarm rings again… I click snooze again.
6:48 AM: The alarm rings for the third time. This time, I get up.
6:49 – 7:30: During these 50 minutes, I get ready for school. I do brush, take a shower, get dressed, and do my hair.
7:30 – 8: After I’m finished getting ready, I head downstairs to eat and pack my lunch. For breakfast, I usually make an acai bowl, which I’m obsessed with.
8:05: I leave for school!
8:30: School starts.
8:30 – 3:30: School. I take 6 periods, including biology.
3:30 – 7: Tennis
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I have games. The game itself doesn’t last for 3 hours, but transportation and waiting until all players are finished add up.
On Mondays and Wednesdays, I have practice. Practice lasts for about 2 hours.
Regardless of whether I’m in practice or playing a game, I always have fun and make the most out of it.
7 – 8: At around 7, I’m back home and I take a quick shower to freshen up. I then eat dinner with my family and we watch an episode of a show, usually Modern Family.
8 -9: This is the time I take to focus on homework or studying. I don’t get that much homework as a freshman, but there are still assignments I have to complete. For example, taking biology notes, completing a math worksheet, or working on an English project.
9 – 9:45: If I still have homework left, I finish it up (after procrastinating for about 10 minutes on Youtube or Instagram.) Otherwise, I go back downstairs to get a glass of water and spend time with my family.
9:45 – 10: This is the time to work on myself and myself only. First, I use Notion to make or adjust my to-do list for tomorrow. Then, I choose my outfit for the next day as well. I also meditate for about 5 minutes.
10 – Next Day: I usually get tired by 9:30 so I go to bed by 10. I know, it’s super early. But, it’s the perfect time for me to sleep. I don’t expect this to hold up next year and in the following years of high school, though. By sleeping at 10 and waking up at around 6:45, I get a little less than 9 hours of sleep.
Other Days of The Week:
Now of course, this schedule above is not an accurate representation of every day of the week. For example, on Mondays, I get the most homework so most of my night after tennis is spent doing homework. On Wednesdays and Thursdays, I don’t get that much homework so I’m able to spend more time with my family and watch TV with them after I come back home. On Fridays, I don’t have tennis practice so I come home directly after school and watch Netflix for 1-2 hours before working and being productive.
The weekends are a whole different story for me. I try to finish all my weekend homework on Friday so that I have Saturday and Sunday to work on other things. On the weekends, I spend 50% of my day working on my tasks and the other 50% to just relax and reset. For example, after breakfast to lunch, I write half of a blog. After lunch, I work on my other priorities. On Sunday, I finish the blog, and after lunch, I don’t really do anything productive except exercise.
Hope you enjoyed this post on a day in my life as a high-school student (freshman edition!) As you can see, I added freshman edition because I’m 99% sure this routine is not going to stick with me for the following 3 years of my high-school experience.
While this routine is written to the best of my ability, it is not 100% accurate because each day is a different day and new things come up. However, if I were to sum up the days, this routine would be the most consistent one.
I hope you were able to see both the highs and the lows, as there is no such thing as the perfect day. I do snooze my alarm twice before waking up, I do procrastinate before getting to my homework, and I do watch a lot of TV on some days. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t stick to my habits and that I am not able to cross things of my to-do list and get closer to my goals.
If you have any questions you’d like to ask me about being a freshman in high school, or any comments you’d like to mention about any similarities with your routine, please feel free to do so!
