A Productive Work Day in My Life!

It’s been a while since I’ve described a day in my life, and today I’m typing this still in pajamas, because that’s a perk of working from home. To break it down, in case you’re new: I work for my mom’s psychology practice and I also work for a company called Continuity Care– I really love it! I also start my doctoral program in less than a week.

My lunch break was this with italian dressing, lemon juice, and Mrs. Dash spices, along with a large bureka.

After lunch, I took a shower and brushed out my hair. Apparently, the longer your hair is, the more knotted it gets, and quarantine has given my hair a chance to reach unprecedented lengths. Currently, my hair is drying. I’m doing a doozy of a report with lots of records. In psychology, the older the patient, the more records they have, which makes sense. I’ve been conditioned to prefer little kids at this point!

Update 2.0. I’m watching Selling Sunset because my friend Peri recommended it, and we’ll be talking on the phone tonight, so we may as well discuss the show. You may think the show is overdramatizing corporate conflicts, but the sad thing is, I bet there are people who actually do start conflicts in the workplace over minor issues. One of my biggest fears is to for the regional center, aka my dream company, to have these kinds of corporate conflicts. I bet they don’t. I bet they’re perfect.

Then, I worked out in the home gym today and did leg day. Evidentiary support:

This is me before, during, and after the workout! I’m a person who can never wear makeup to the gym, because it will either a) fully melt, or b) leave me with raccoon eyes, neither of which is a desirable alternative. I have a healthy addiction to Michelle Reed videos– her productivity, health, and connection with her religion inspires me.

Guys. Bad news. so remember the report that I summed up, the one that took me over an hour to sum up due to the amount of records? I just received an email with even more records for the person. Insert gasp of horror here. I’m totally kidding. It’s a little annoying, but I am obsessed enough with my future career not to mind.

With the rest of my evening, I’m going to call my friend Peri while I pack for a weekend trip. It’s weird because Peri is a freshman in college and I’m a freshman in grad school, but we are literally the same age; I don’t feel a difference between us.

Today was a really good day. I’m glad I documented it.

Hi everyone! I started my doctorate in clinical psychology in fall 2020. A google search revealed that there are no current grad school blogs for psychology students. Anyway, I happen to know a girl who wants to document her journey to getting a doctorate (spoiler: it's me). Welcome. Hope you stay awhile!
