School Weekday Morning Routine

When I shared my summer morning routine, I got a few requests to share my morning routine during the school year. While my school year one is a lot shorter, it still could be interesting to some people so I wanted to share it.

I wake up and lay in bed for maybe 5 minutes. I am not a person who likes waking up and snoozing for an hour before I actually get out of bed. I would rather sleep in until the last minute possible then get up and go.

By this time I am eating breakfast. During the school week I stick to cereal just because it is quick and fills me up longer than some other quick foods. But let's be honest, I keep some sort of food in my locker to snack on between classes in case I get hungry! 

After I eat breakfast I go get dressed. I usually think of what outfit I am going to wear in the few minutes I spend laying in bed before I get up. This is another trick to help me get up because if I see a cute outfit, I get excited to wear it and get up! 

After I get dressed I go brush my teeth, brush my hair, and put my contacts in. I rarely rare makeup to school... usually just a little concealer and lip gloss. I will sometimes wear mascara but I usually will just curl my lashes if I want to do that. I will also put on a little body spray or scented lotion during this time if I want to. If I have extra time and I am feeling adventurous, I will try a hairstyle. Most days I will just put in a bow or headband, but sometimes I braid the front part of my hair or try something more complicated if I have extra time!

The night before I make part of my lunch, but at this time I pack the rest of it. I take my own lunch every day because the school does not offer good options. Ever. 

I am out the door by 7:45 or 7:50 at the latest. I only live about 5 minutes away from the school so I drive there. I usually get there 5 or 10 minutes early, so I sit in my car listening to the radio and catching up on social media and blogs! By 8 or 8:05 I am in the building and ready to conquer the day (or go back to bed...)! 

As you can tell, I have perfected my routine over the years so I can get up as late as possible. By 2nd semester I usually don't get up until 7:15 because I have gotten so into the routine! 

What is your routine? What time do you get up for school or work? Tell me in the comments!
