Friday, June 15, 2012

Wake up at 6am
Get Ready
Walk to the Train Station
Catch the 7:12 or 7:35 Train... Usually the 7:35...
Read/Sleep on my way into the city
Arrive around 8:30
Walk to work
Start work around 9
Eat Lunch
Attend cool advertising meetings
Get off around 6. Sometimes later.
Check out something cool in Chicago. I have found when visiting a new city you have to do something everyday or you won't even put a dent in it. 
Walk back to the Train Station
Catch the Train home
Read or watch Netflix on the 1.5 hr train ride home
Arrive home
Grab some Dinner

Sleep by 10pm
