A Day in the Life

by Zoë Noble

A friend just asked what we do on a typical day now that we’re freelancing in Berlin, and we thought we’d share it here so you can get a picture of our “exciting” new life. Warning: contains offensive slippers.

1. James wakes up at 8am and makes coffee from a machine that sounds like a pneumatic drill
2. I wake up shortly thereafter
3. We sit at the table and mess around on our laptops checking Twitter/Facebook then we get down to some “work” in our dressing gowns
4. Sometimes we break for shower at around 11am… sometimes not
5. At lunchtime we get clothed and either eat pitiful sandwiches or we venture out to a nearby hipster café for human contact
6. Back in the flat we pretend to “work” some more before boredom sets in and social networking takes over
7. Around 6pm it’s tea time, but it seems that without Tesco Online we can no longer function as normal human beings and have to resort to pasta and pesto every night, as it’s the only thing in our cupboards
8. For our evening’s entertainment we have hopefully downloaded something to watch, or like tonight, we will force ourselves to go out in the freezing cold to some hip Berlin event to be able to write a blog post about it
9. Get to bed around midnight, making a pact to work harder tomorrow
