Typical work day goes like this:
7:20 – Alarm goes off. I hit snooze.
7:30 – Alarm goes off, again. I hit snooze again. At this point I usually grab the phone (which is my alarm) and check e-mail, Facebook, Reddit for a wee bit while trying to actually wake up.
7:40 – Alarm goes off, again. I turn it off and finally get out of bed to get dressed and all that.
8:00 – I go downstairs. I eat some breakfast if I have easy stuff at hand. Otherwise it’s a glass of milk, or maybe one of those tiny yoghurt drinks. I feed the cats if Nienke hasn’t gotten up before me and did it. I fill my water bottle and put it in my work bag. For the rest it’s always ready to go.
8:10 – I leave the house, grab my bike and head for the train station.
8:18ish – Depending on how fast I ride, I arrive a the train station around this time. I put my bike away and walk up to the platform.
8:23 – My train comes, we leave for the city.
8:40ish – The train arrives at the city’s main train station. I get out and walk to work.
8:45ish – I get to work and go upstairs to my floor.
8:48ish – Made it to my floor, I pick a desk and turn on the computer.
8:50ish – Check in on the computer.
9:00 – Work starts. Generally I start with two hours of paper work.
11:00 – Break!
11:15 – Break over. Generally, this is when I start a call shift.
12:45 – Time for lunch. I often go to the built in cafeteria for some soup and stuff.
13:15 – Lunch over. Generally, this is when my e-mail or other non-voice stuff shift starts.
15:15 – Another break.
15:30 – Buckling down for the last two hours of the day.
17:30 – Time to check out and shut things down and head for the station again.
17:52 – My train goes.
18:10ish – We arrive back in my town. I head for my bike and go home.
18:25ish – Back home. Time to drop my stuff and feed the cats if Nienke hasn’t done it yet.
18:45ish – The evening starts 😀 Figuring out what to eat, maybe do some chores, relax, play a game, read a book, watch some TV or a movie, make stuff.
12:00-12:30ish – Time for bed.
