A day in the life of Cecily Belford, a Fifth Form boarder from New York City. What does she do in a day in her life at Westminster? Let’s take a look.
The beginning of Cecily’s day is a blunt wake-up by her alarm which goes off to “Tonight” by SZA.
And then finally, Cecily is awake to start the day. She begins her morning routine by getting dressed and putting on lovely dress-code clothing. After such events, Cecily makes her way to the bathroom to do her makeup for the day.
This concludes the Edge morning routine.
Cecily then makes her way to the dining hall, for breakfast and some coffee before her first class. During class, she spaces out, glitches, malfunctions and drops her phone. Very productive. After the first period, she moves on to her next class, where she malfunctions again and again and drops her phone. Then is the next class, which typically runs smoothly considering she has already gotten all of the bugs out of her system. Then, she once again makes her way to the Dining Hall, for some lovely family-style lunch. She then makes another trip to the bathroom before class begins at 1:15. Then after the last class of the day, she goes back to the Edge dormitory and enjoys a second lunch before going to bed. In bed, she listens to music and doses off into her daily nap. After a successful nap, she wakes up and decides to be productive and go to the gym. She has a great workout and then is a screenager on her phone until dinner.
This concludes the outline that was given to me by Cecily Belford, so we will assume that there is also time for homework and school studies planted somewhere in the day.
