My name is Wilykit. I'm twenty-five years old.
I believe in taking care of myself, in a balanced diet, and a rigorous exercise routine. In the morning, if my face is a little puffy, I'll put on an ice pack while doing my stomach crunches. I can do a thousand now.
Soothing Beauty Mask
After I remove the ice pack I use a deep pore cleanser lotion.
Neutrogena Deep Clean Cream Cleanser, Oil Free - 7 oz
In the shower I use a water-activated gel cleanser...
Neutrogena Body Wash for Clean, Clear Skin 8.5 fl oz (250 ml)
then a honey almond body scrub...
100 Percent Pure - Organic Honey Almond Body Scrub - 14 oz
and on the face, an exfoliating gel scrub.

Then I apply an herb mint facial masque which I leave on for ten minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine.
Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque 12 oz. Jar

... bring the duvet into the front room and turn on the internet. Drink coffee, eat pain au chocolat whilst posting on Facebook, MMO Champion and DiS. Play WoW for a bit. Eat pizza, drink beer, smoke. Play more WoW. Pick up duvet, go back to bedroom, turn off light and fall asleep.
Only with less WoW, and he doesn't move from his desk apart from to piss, get food or go to a lecture...
... and use a gaming beanbag rather than any desk/chair combo. Plus I haven't been to uni for about 8 years now.

Midnightish - Bedtime.
09:00 = Alarm goes off
10:15 = Wank myself awake. Try to ignore smell of room/flat, which is a combination of expired socks, stale beer and highly evolved cell cultures
10:20-12:00 = Slap computer on. Decide against shower. Eat white sliced bread slathered with flora whilst carefully cycling through each of my daily visited sites. Sometimes put a letter into the address bar and vacantly scroll through the suggested results to remind myself what each of them are
12:00-12:30 = Walk to supermarket. Marvel at all the real people I pass on the way, going about their real lives as if it was nothing. Buy white sliced bread, curry sauces, Carlsberg, chicken nuggets, milk, digestives, and a sausage roll. Try not to hyperventilate at checkout when assistant accidentally brushes my hand
12:30-12:45 = Half-heartedly begin filling out application form for Tesco's. Give up on reasonable basis that they would pay me not much more than what I currently receive for doing nothing to do a lot of something I would absolutely hate, and would not do as well as a chap from Belarus would
12:45-15:00 = With completion of constructive effort period, real business of the day begins. Flit between Football Manager and a myriad of forums, mostly dealing in sarcastic putdowns, pointing out of grammar errors, and intricate critiques of modern day video games and the people that enjoy them. Check e-mails every half hour, get moderately excited every time there's a new one, even though it's always a viagra drone which has managed to scrape through the filter
15:00-15:30 = Write a withering response to an article discussing the supposed burgeoning of online rape culture, referencing Kirkegaard, Schopenhauer and Nietzsche
15:30-18:00 = WoW raid. Blame eventual failure of event on the Tauren Ranger with the adenoid problem
18:00-18:30 = Dinner. Chicken nuggets, ketchup and white bread. Look out of window, note how dark/light it is at this time of year
18:30-22:00 = CoD or CS, depending on mood. Start a votescramble any time my team loses. If this fails start a votekick against any person on my team who is not as good as me. If this fails join spectator
22:00-23:00 = Flick through politics forums again whilst downing the Carlsberg. Fervently wish I had been born 50 years ago/100 years in the future
23:00-00:00 = Masturbate to violent cartoon Japanese porn. Try not to think of check-out assistant at climax
00:00-00:05 = Pick winnets from arse crack
00:05-09:00 = Sleep
If you must know I don't own a flat, I live with my mum

couldn't do it.
i've got a 45-minute limit each way.
could you not move nearer to where you work?

When I was working I set my alarm for the same time as you, but I'd then use up your coffee'n'internet time earlier in the form of being semi comatose for the next forty minutes.
than arrive and start work immediately.
Plus, leaving a bit early enables me to avoid the rush hour and get a parking space. Leave ten minutes later and it takes me an hour to get in.
This is my first office job and I've only had it four weeks, so I'm sure this stuff will change.
Also, I can't "snooze" - I either have to get up or I will fall back to sleep for three hours.
Fortunately it was a pretty rubbish one.
feeling like limp bizkit.
Others I'm starting at 6am.
Ah, shift work.

I'd love to be finished for the day at 2pm, but on the other hand getting up at 4 must suck.
but riding to work in the crisp new dawn in the summer is awesome. It's also a good way to wake up. Finishing at 2.30 is great in the summer as I can go riding whilst most people still have 3 hours left to work. And I can get to gigs without rushing.
should've set it up on excel
Hope the machine's working right
When it's just precisely tuned
That's how it comes out so nice
Make sure my kid's got a jacket
and coat and shoes and I
