Hello Lovlies! I know fall quarter is over for many of us, but I decided to share with you my typical school day morning anyways. This quarter I had classes at eight a.m. every morning, so I started my day pretty early in order minimize my stress levels while getting ready for the day. With that being said, let’s get into my college morning routine.
5:30-5:45 a.m. Wake Up
I wake up between 5:30 and 5:45 each morning depending on if I need to take a shower. While this may seem really early to you night owls, I go to bed pretty early so I still sleep the recommended amount each night.
5:45-6:05 a.m. Wash Face and Do Make Up
After I wake up, I immediately wash my face and put on my moisturizer. I sit and let my moisturizer sink into my skin for about five minutes. During that time I will either catch up on social media or make green tea. Once my moisturizer has sunk in a little bit, I begin to do my make up. Although my makeup for school is minimal, I still like to take my time doing it.
6:05-6:10 Get Dressed
Once my make up is done, I quickly pick out an outfit for the day and put it on. My typical school outfit consists of a v-neck shirt, jeans, and a sweatshirt.
6:10-6:30 Eat Breakfast
This is easily my favorite part of my morning. I usually eat scrambled eggs and a banana in the morning, since it is quick, easy, and full of protein. During this time, I also drink my green tea that I made earlier.
6:30-6:40 Brush and Style Hair
Once I finish breakfast, I usually head to the mirror to do my hair. Typically, I just brush my hair, add some dry shampoo, and let it be. However, if my bedhead was really bad, I take a couple minutes to straighten my hair.
6:40-6:45 Pack Backpack
This step of my morning routine is pretty easy since I usually pack my backpack the night before. However, I always like to check and make sure I have everything before I leave. If you’d like to know what is in my backpack check out this post.
6:45-6:50 Pack Snacks and Fill Water Bottle
The last thing I do at my apartment in the morning is pack snacks for the day ahead. This usually consists of a kind bar and some carrots.
6:50 Leave Apartment and Walk to the Bus Stop
Once my backpack is all packed and I have snacks and a water bottle to get me through the day, I put on my head phones and walk to the bus stop. I usually take the first bus to school in the morning because I have to walk across campus to get to my classes in the morning, which is why I leave so early.
Overall, it takes me about an hour and a half to get ready for school in the morning. I love how calm and destressing my mornings are. Although I woke up pretty early, I had a lot of time to have a quiet, chill morning before exercising my brain all day at school. I hope you enjoyed my fall quarter morning routine!
