Photography task: My daily routine
Location: Tallinn, Estonia
Camera setting: Landscape, Food, Portrait, Close up
07:19 The alarm goes off. I shut it down and don’t get up until I’m awake enough to know what day it is. IT’S FRIDAY!
07:50 I’ve had my cup of coffee, I’ve done my hair and make-up, and I’m pulling on my shoes preparing to leave the building.
08:05 The tram left right in front of my nose, once again I didn’t make it. Next one comes in about 4 minutes, though, so I don’t give a toss.
08:30 I arrive to the office, I say good morning, they say good morning, I fire up the laptop and check the queue, it’s Summer so there’s no work to do.
08:45 I fetch a cup of hot chocolate, take out my scheduler for my blog and plan and schedule until work appears.
09:00 – 12:00 I’ve come up with a plan for next week and worked. Time to have some lunch.
13:00 – 16:00 I work.
16:15 I say “See y’all next week” and leave the office. The tram leaves just when I turn the corner to see the back of it. Next one comes in about 4 minutes, though, so I don’t give a toss.
16:45 The minute I arrive home I turn on the TV and find something, anything to just play on the background. This time it was a British show The Last Leg on Youtube
17:00 There’s a glass of wine (or today an open can of beer) on my livingroom table accompanied by an array of make-up. Time to get ready for the Friday night out!
18:00 Make-up done, it’s time to start preparing myself mentally for the next task ahead; tackling my hair. (Check out those knees btw :’D I stumbled big time a week before and the results are still visible…)
19:30 After multiple tries and re-tries, combing and brushing, oiling and hair spraying I’m finally content with the bun that I managed to erect on top of my head.
19:45 I slip on the clothes which I chose already the previous day, decorate myself with the necessary jewelry, spray on a little perfume and get ready to leave.
20:00 We arrive to a rooftop terrace in the Old Town for a glass of wine and the latest gossip.
23:00 There is a festival called Sweet Spot ongoing in the Kalamaja area. The after party is held in one of the coolest outdoor bars in the city: PADA. The area is sort of like a mini festival.
23:50 As awesome as PADA is the organizers have managed to fuck up the arrangements completely, once again. After queuing for half an hour to get into the area we get to the bar and are told that they don’t accept cash or bank cards. Instead we need to “download” money into the bracelets we received at the entrance. There was no information about this anywhere. So, back to the entrance we crawl and join another insane (in Estonian standards) queue.
00:20 We’re angry and we’re frustrated but we’ve finally got bracelets with which we can buy a drink. Yeah, I get it, you want to try out these cool new gadgets but this was not the place or the way to do it. Sure, have the bracelets, but also accept cards and cash next time, thank you!
01:00 We’re sitting down on the terrace and following how 2 Australian men jump from one table to the next. I find myself laughing my ass off: their intentions are crystal clear when they try to infiltrate another party of girls who eventually turn them down, so they move straight on to the next table of girls. There is another aspect of the locals I cannot comprehend: they’re Australian men!! Sorry gals, but you really can’t get anything better in this country ;D
01:30 We’re switching between rooms in the old stone building where each room has a different DJ playing EDM. So happy I got to dance! It wiped the bad memories of queuing and queuing earlier off my mind.
02:30 The place is great, the music is great but the party somehow doesn’t seem to start. Maybe PADA is more a sitting-down type of a place rather than an EDM party, I dunno. But since the mood is not developing we decide to leave.
03:00 I arrive home, wash off my make-up, change into my nightie and crawl into bed. Good night.
