A Day In The Life (2 stars)

This past May/June I took Anatomy at Mary Washington and was staying in one of my friends houses. I happened to make this TikTok to “vlog” what it was like to be up in Fredericksburg during the summer while also studying for Anatomy. My favorite thing to do was pack up my school supplies and head downtown for the morning to take some notes and study.

This day I woke up, made my bed, open the windows to let the sunshine in, and then got dressed to head downtown. After eating my breakfast I walked to Curitiba. Curitiba is my favorite spot in downtown Fredericksburg, it has the best environment to study in and they make the best matcha latte in town. I sat and learned all of the bones for about 2 hours and then walked back home after strolling around town for a little bit to window shop. When I got back home I decided to treat myself to a trip to Marshalls and Target, because retail therapy is a very important part of life.

After I got back from shopping, I laid out my blanket in the backyard and sat out there to study more for Anatomy while using my coloring book to ensure that I knew all of the bones. I put on some of my favorite old classic music and stayed out there for a while in the warmth. Once the sun started setting I headed upstairs to watch the sunset from my window and studied some more!


A Day In The Life

A typical day in the life looks pretty boring these days. I am trying my best to really soak in all of the relaxation that I can before school starts this fall. My working week schedule looks a little something like this….

The first thing I do when I wake up which is not featured in my audio here is snooze approximately 5 alarms before getting up for my 7 a.m. shadowing at the dental office. Once I finally decide to get out of bed, I head into my bathroom to brush my teeth, followed by opening my blinds. Opening the blinds in the morning is something that I have found really makes or breaks my morning. Whether is sunny or rainy, it is nice to just let in a new light after having the room dark for 8 hours. Once I do that, I head down to the kitchen to make a large glass of water. One of my goals this summer is to stay hydrated (which I am extremely bad at). After I make my water, I usually make a bagel with peanut butter and banana. I have been hyper fixated on this breakfast all summer, and I don’t plan on finding a replacement anytime soon!

After choking down my bagel at record speed because I am always rushing in the morning, I head back upstairs to throw on my scrubs and tennis shoes, grab my keys, and head out the door. Once I get to the dental office, I attend the morning meeting which summarizes each patient coming in that day and what procedures they are having done (my favorite part of the day). After the meeting I chat and catch up with all of the employees and we get to work. This summer I am shadowing a general dentist and it has grown my love for dentistry even more than I could have imagined. My hours there usually last from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. When I am all finished up there, I head back to my gym to get in a workout before I head home.

My current gym workout includes a daily 30 minute inclined walk on the treadmill, and either an arm day or leg day following after that. By the time I leave the gym I am STARVING after the day I have had so I arrive home and assist my mom with dinner prep to speed up the process. Once I eat I am ready to shower and get cozy and bed. I usually end my night with a few episodes of Modern Family to unwind. Then I set my alarms and do it all over again!
