In February 2010 I was inspired by the google experiment "Life in a Day" - "Every day, 6.7 billion people view the world through their own unique lens. Imagine if there was a way to collect all of these perspectives, to aggregate and mold them into the cohesive story of a single day on earth." - Official Google Blog
You can view the project here - http://www.youtube.com/lifeinaday

I have had many penpals since then - some stay in contact some don't, But I always ask them to jot down "A day in the life of.. themselves" from sun up to sun down, what do they do? where do they go? what type of routine do they keep? I don't want to be too nosy but it is amazing the difference not only from person to person - but the Huge Difference from nation to nation, however you'd also be surprised at the amount of daily activities we all share in common! It's such a small but beautiful insight into anothers world. And it makes you realise how big the world is!

So here is the deal - All you have to do is write down "An 'Average' day in the life of... YOU!" From when you get up! To when you fall into bed - Who do you see, Where do you go, What do you do? Be as specific as you want to be; You can write it as a list ie:
7am - Wake up, Shower.
8am - Breakfast (Jam & Toast!)
Or as a story type - Each day I wakeup at 7am, I have to be at work at 9am, So I quickly shower etc.
You can choose to do a Weekday or Weekend - Although if you work 9-5 a weekend might be more interesting!

You will have 1 partner to Write too (& Decorate if you'd like to) on Notepaper or A Card & Send away!

Please no Flakers - this is a Fairly simple swap so lets make it a good one! Only users with a 4.8+ Rating May join! No unexplained 1's or 3's in the past 3 months.
Newbies Welcome - We all have to start somewhere! However you must have a filled in profile!

This is the first time I've hosted a Swap - I hope i've given you all enough information & i hope you'll find it interesting enough to join! If i've left anything out - or you'd like to ask me questions! Please contact me! :) Happy Swapping!

wow I never expected so many people to join my first swap! quick update - beth made a great suggestion..
if you'd like to include a photo of yourself - either a portrait, or doin one of the activities on your routine, that'd be lovely - but not mandatory! thanks guys!
happy swapping!

Should this just be a list of all the common things I do every day, or can it be a sort of diary of one specific day, including common things as well as anything out of the ordinary?

Hey Inox! Sorry it took me a while to write back -- Try and make it an average day - You can add in little notes for out of the ordinary things as well :) But as average as possible! if that doesnt make sense - let me know & i'll try to explain better :) Thanks! x Rin

Hi there people! So, as my project of 'day in a life' still has to have some work on it [seriously, it's getting really cute!], I won't be able to post today. I worked and studied the entire week, so I barely had time to make it. I'm so sorry, guys! But don't worry, I'll post on monday (which means I'll have time to work with all my love and dedication to make a beautiful letter!). I hope you guys don't mind being late...
