It seems we have a wide range of people and reasons for being here. This isn't about your job so no need to post what you do for a living if you don't want to. It is more to see how people are fulfilling their day to day lives here, what you get up to, is it routine or random, how do you balance it all to make it work for you?

So, a typical day for me would be........................

Here's mine:

Up every morning at 5.

Drive to work.

Work until 5.

Go to house/carwash/movies(pick one)

Go home, go to bed.

Pretty boring.
When I go to The DR my routine is almost like yours but in reverse.

Party until about 5 in the morning.

Drive home if I can see the road.

Sleep until about 5.

Go to bar/car wash and pick up one (girl that is)...

Go to Cabana, go to bed :bunny: :bunny: :bunny:

Pretty boring too...if you ask me.



Disclaimer: It's a joke people...I don't pick up girls from carwashes...

Wake up 8am, at work by 9am. 3 hour lunch then 6pm I go to mirador sur park and run. Then come home to eat something. watch a movie on my projector screen, play with internet and then sleep at 12am.
In my spare time, I fix things, everything from fixing an old rusted stove, opening rusted locks to fixing laptops to modifying hardware to installing inverters etc. This weekend was a long weekend and rained everyday. I took the time off to fix 2 laptops with hardware problems, bought some poor people a used gas tank and installed it with all the tubes and regulators. I have found a place where you can buy reconditions (painted) gas tanks for very cheap (in santiago). Then I called codetel and had them change the whole telephone line all the way from my home to the poll. Now my internet dsl line does not go down and I get a rock steady fast internet.
So in my free time, I have become an expert in ghetto fixes.

I don't install inverters, I just install my inverters. I am an electrical engineer but only use it as hobby. By profession, I am a chiropractor. Hahahaha. go figure this out.

I wake up a 7:50 and take the girls to school. Come home, check email for anything work related then eat bfast. Post on DR1 and play xbox until time to pick up girls at 12:30. Eat lunch, check email for anything work related, maybe take a nap or play xbox. Later on take the girls to homework tutor, check email for anything work related and play xbox. Pick up girls check email for anything work related and play xbox until time to work out. Eat dinner, have one beer, post on DR1 and play xbox.

A couple of times a week I have to buy groceries but we also have a small supermarket that has free delivery. At the end of the month I have to get out to pay the bills. On the weekends we go to Moca. Every so often we go to the park or the movies even during the week to break up the monotony.

Also, if by chance I do get work I turn on my favorite internet salsa channel and play with autocad or some other program and make a bunch of call and send emails. Unfortunatley I can't listen to the radio nor receive emails when I'm making phone calls as I don't have enough bandwidth. But other than that it is great at 750 down and 250 up.

What happened with your X90 program, are you still doing it.
