Hi, I’m Rebekah and I live in Guernsey, which is a small island in the Channel Islands. I work full-time as a paralegal at a law firm and I’m in my last year of my degree. I’ve been working since 2017; I started studying towards my degree in 2018.
Today is a Wednesday, a work day. Most of my days are the same, to be honest, unless it is a weekend or a bank holiday!
07:00: My boyfriend’s alarm goes off. That’s okay though, because I’ve got another half an hour until I need to be up. I put some background noise on my headphones and head back to sleep to grab those extra few minutes.
07:30: My alarm goes off. I start work at 9am, and even though my commute is only ten minutes (no commute is very far in Guernsey!), I like to leave at 8:30am. I know I only need half an hour to get ready, so I get out my phone and scroll through social media. I like to do my daily Wordle and New York Times mini crossword before I get out of bed, and I’ll often do a little bit of Duolingo as well – I’m currently learning Norwegian.
08:00: I finally get out of bed and get ready. I pack my bags and am sure to include my study stuff in case I get some spare time during the day. Then, I leave by 8:30am.
08:40: There’s a parking space outside my favourite café, so I stop by and grab an oat milk latte – no better way to start the day!
