For one day on January 18, 2007 I carried my camera everywhere and I took one photograph each hour. My goal was to capture a picture every hour that would represent whatever I was doing at that moment.
Life was a lot different back then! I was working full time as an administrative assistant at a travel agency. My hubby and I were living in an apartment & enjoying our child-free lifestyle. I’ll be doing another “A Day in the Life of…” photography day next week and I can’t wait to see how different January 2007 is from January 2011!
A Day in the Life of Rebekah – January 18, 2007
8:00 Am – Getting my lunch out of the fridge and running late for work. (Yeah, I was suppose to be there at 8 AM. Thankfully, I only worked a few blocks away.)
9:00 AM – Typing up names to print on the front of ticket jackets (special folders to hold airplane tickets).
10:00 AM – In the mail room talking to a coworker while working on UPS shipments.
11:00 AM – Working in the software program used to issue plane tickets.
12:00 PM – Asking a coworker about one of the planet tickets she issued.
1:00 PM – Standing in the check out line at the Ten Thousand Villages warehouse sale during my lunch hour.
2:00 PM – Handing a coworker yellow invoices for her to sort through & organize. (I think she was trying to lean out of my picture. 🙂 )
3:00 PM – Gathering paychecks to send to the other offices via FedEx.
4:00 PM – Stapling plane tickets together at my desk.
5:00 PM – At my desk packaging together more tickets. (See! I might have gotten to work late that day, but at least I wasn’t rushing out the door right at 5:00!)
6:00 PM – Eating chips and watching The OC, which I had previously recorded.
7:00 PM – Showing Nate our wedding album, which just arrived.
8:00 PM – Working on a puzzle in the living room.
9:00 PM – Still working on the puzzle and watching Nanny 911 with Nate.
10:00 PM – In bed for the night! (By the way, Nate doesn’t actually sleep with that hat on.)
I can guarantee that I will not be working on a puzzle for two hours this time around!!!
I need to give a big thank you to my graphic designer for the awesome “A Day in the Life of…” button! Donna from AnotherNewSeason.com created it and I hear she can make custom buttons for you too! 😉

Hmmmm. Interesting challenge. I may just have to try this, on a good hair day of course.
Nony, I would love for you to join the project! If you look back at my photos you can only see my face in one of them. A good hair day is not necessary. 🙂
