SMA: What’s a typical day in Eki’s life like?
Eki: Wake up, Check Instagram and post a few things, look through my emails and mentally make a note of things to add to my to-do list.
Get in the bathroom, do a few squats/lunges while I brush my teeth, get in the shower, say a quick prayer while I’m in there as well
Get out get dressed, get my breakfast and lunch & I’m out.
Get to work about 9, look over my to-do list from the day before and add more things to it. Get started on that. If it’s Monday/Wednesday, we have a team meeting. Work work work Rih Style
Take a break for lunch.
More work, update my to-do list and then head out. Sometimes I meet with friends after work, sometimes I don’t. When I don’t I head home and do some more work on social and on the websites.
