What My Day Off Looks Like

There’s nothing more exciting than knowing that your day off is only just a few days or hours away. I usually only have  a one day off after 3 days of working which kind of sucks sometimes cuz most people get two consecutive day offs but it’s good at the same time too since I can take a break after 3 days of working.

I bet some of you spend your day offs hanging out with friends or going to places. I usually spend mine just at home, enjoying alone time and catch some sleep. So here’s what my day off looks like:

1. SLEEP// My day off is usually after a graveyard shift. So I get home with tired eyes, eat breakfast, and sleep for 3-4 hours. Sometimes I would fight my sleepiness cuz I don’t want to waste my day off on sleep but usually, I still do.

2. BE ON FACETIME// This is actually the first thing I do when I get home. Call my boyfriend and talk to him until I fall asleep. When the connection’s good, when I wake up, he would still be on the call with me playing video games. lol.

3. NETFLIX// We would usually watch a movie together simultaneously so that it’ll feel like we’re actually watching it together but miles away. When he’s asleep, I would watch documentaries on Netflix alone like the one I saw yesterday called On The Way To School.  It’s about stories of 4 kids from different countries showing the struggles of how they get to school. Funny thing is, they don’t see it as a struggle, they were even happy even if they have to walk in the middle of an African Safari for hours, if they would have to push his brother’s broken wheelchair for an hour just for them to go to school. This is one of the most beautiful documentary I’ve ever seen. So inspirational.

4. SIMS 4// This is the only PC game I play. I used to be so obsessed with it but after awhile, it gets boring. I want a game with an actual story line like The Walking Dead. Any recommendations? I still play Sims though. Here’s my little family eating dinner.

5. READ BLOGS & WRITE A BLOG POST// Like what I’m doing right now. I would go on Bloglovin, check my feed and read other blogs. It’s no fun just writing a blog post without visiting other blogger’s post. Some can be really informative, some are funny and entertaining and some has really good photos. I drop a comment on it too cuz blog posts deserves comments.

6. TAKE SELFIES// When I’m really bored, I would take selfies. Sometimes I would put on makeup just for fun, go on Snapchat and lip syncing to songs on my Spotify playlist because why not? haha. If you wanna see my random snaps, my username is ALISSAMAGS.

 

 

7. READ BOOKS// I usually read eBooks so I just use my phone for that. I’m still currently reading P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han. I usually don’t take this long to read a book but nowadays, I would rather watch movies, shows and documentaries.

8. HANG OUT// When my friends are available, which rarely happens (*insert side eye emoji), we would go out shopping and eat lunch or dinner on a restaurant and catching up on each other’s lives. When they’re not available and I’m in the mood to go out, I’m lucky that my mom is always there to hang out with me (how sad lol). We usually just watch a movie.


Soo there ya go. How about you guys? How would you spend your day off?

    I usually spend my days off watching TV, stalking your blogs, and eating loads of chocolates. If I’m not lazy I try to cook for the whole family. A lazy day off is a day off well-spent for me 🙂 Anyway, I hope you enjoy the rest of your day, Alissa! 🙂

      You don’t have day offs? I mean you rarely do? Maybe it’s understandable cuz outside of the classroom you still have to do loads of paperwork. Well at least holidays can save you 🙂

    I spend my weekends sleeping in! Like I usually wake up around 2PM because Joey would be forcing me out of bed. Shower, head out, do stuff then go hang out with friends at night. It’s rare that I get to stay in on weekends, which sucks because I like doing nothing haha.

    You and your boyf are so cute. ❤

    I like my off days quiet during the day and eventful at night, haha! I always want to go to a club at night or wherever but that doesn’t usually happen so I usually end up playing the PS3 with the boy.

    When I’m on the internet world, I never really tried closing my laptop without visiting your blog, Al 🙂 I really enjoy reading your stuff here. And oh, #2’s just too cute, happy to know that you’re getting stronger ’cause I really know how hard it is to be in such. Also, playing Sims could be a little boring sometimes, I only like making their houses then after that I just leave the family like that and make another one then a new house again Lol. Just enjoy the rest of the day and the coming days :))

    I usually just sleep on my day off! It’s the only time I can get enough rest, work has been exhausting and I’m really having a hard time getting some decent sleep lately :/ but other than sleeping, I watch some movies and doing whatnot on the internet.

    p.s., how do I get to show up an image whenever I comment on here? Can’t figure that one out.

      Sleeping in sounds like a good idea! It’s hard working at night shifts when you have to get up while everyone is asleep. I’m glad my work at the delivery room, we get to sleep if we don’t have any patient

    I’m introverted, and I don’t really have “friends” in the stereotypical sense… I mean, I have people online, and those I have offline don’t hang out with me… mostly because of me. Because I don’t have interest in that. :p

    I have The Sims 3… I don’t think The Sims 4 will interest me much. I like the extensions for the game I have (I have all the extensions), and I wasn’t too fond of the changes for The Sims 4. What about creating miniature challenges for yourself? For example, for one family, you never use any cheats… or you plan one’s death/affair/etc. before you can get too attached to them. I usually use it to fill a void for boredom or to test out how one of my [written] characters will do in certain settings. OR I just design houses… does Sims 4 allow for that?

    I work from home, but for my days off, well… Idunno. I try to balance things out evenly, so that way it stays balanced. I do best on a schedule, otherwise I’ll find myself knocked off of it, and… well, that is never fun. >.>

      I don’t think Sims 4 has extensions yet but you can design houses. I agree it gets boring when the characters are always in the same setting. I don’t use cheats much aside from the money cheat and its quite hard getting their needs up while doing other things. At least I have something to do when I’m bored.

      And I know how you feel about not having many friends in real life. I rarely hang out with them too. So spending time online is enough for me lol

    I rarely get day-offs, haha how completely sad 🙁 Even if it’s the weekend and I don’t work on my freelance jobs, I still have school works and blogging, which definitely take up a lot of time. If I get a short break then I definitely like going on city trips because Cebu has new restaurants popping in and I like sharing them, however the traffic sucks and I definitely hate being stuck in them.

    Anyway, you and your boyfriend are adorable. I know LDR is hard, but you guys can definitely make it. Hope you stay stronger than before! 🙂

      And aww, you should rest from time to time though. Spending day offs at a new restaurant is the best way! 🙂 glad Iloilo city doesn’t really have traffic

    Ahhh I love Sims! I like it more because I can build houses and I like decorating and making them look pretty and real! Sometimes I even google photos that I can copy or whenever I see photos of houses in Facebook, I save them!!

      I think I’m the only one who doesn’t have patience to build a house that I really want. I’m just to eager to make the characters and play the game.

    Hey, all sound good to me, especially this thing you call sleep. What is that? Jk. I sleep all the time when I can. It’s marvelous! How is the Sims 4? I only have Sims 3.
