No matter what part of the earth you call home, we each have the same number of hours in one day; we have routines, recreation, and work we fit into our time. This challenge is about expressing the things that make you proud, excited, and thoughtful to be who you are.
If you’d like to join the #24HoursAsMe challenge, create a video, blog post, social media story, or other form of message conveying what you do each day. You can also tag your friends, to challenge them to brainstorm a theme, too! This should be a fun, relaxing activity, and should hone in on the elements of your routine that most convey your personality and passions. Take a bit of creative liberty: combine things you do on different days that share your theme; or leave out unrelated actions. Make your summary your own, and show us what’s fantastic about you! I’d love to hear what your day consists of, so be sure to leave a comment below and link me to your entry!
For my focus, I’m doing my career/major: English studies. This ties into my passion for writing, my love of reading, and most of my daylight hours at this point in life.
Here’s my #24HoursAsMe entry:
