“I've never been great at separating work from life.”

Andrew Schroeder

Baseball Fan, Marketer @ Bean Box • Seattle, WA

Andrew is new to the working world, a time-honored transition that comes with both struggle and insight.

§ What time do you get to sleep? What time do you wake up?
Anytime from 9pm to 1am. If it's on the later side, it's probably because I've found a show I like (I have a Netflix problem). I wake up around 7 on weekdays and 9:30 on weekends.
§ What do you dream about?
Work. I've never been great at separating "work" from "life." When I was in college, I solved (or attempted) many problem sets while sleeping. I do have the occasional dream where I'm playing professional baseball... sigh.
§ What’s the first thing you do once you’re awake?
I've never been much of a social media guy, but I always scroll through Twitter as soon as I wake up (I suppose it's my millennial way of making sure I'm up with things that I care about). My Twitter feed mainly consists of news, Seattle sports, and car related things.
§ What morning ritual do you have that’s sacred to starting your day off right?
I'm just not a ritualistic person. However, I find smiling and saying good morning to my coworkers always helps kick off the day in a positive way!
§ What one possession/object is essential to your morning?
My insulated water bottle. It's always by my bed when I'm at home and it's what I miss when I'm traveling. Honorable mention goes to my alarm clock, which gently lights up as the set time approaches.
§ With whom do you spend your mornings?
Me, myself, and I.
§ What do you eat for breakfast?
A frozen breakfast burrito, avocado toast, or, if I'm lucky, some sort of breakfast sandwich from a cafe.
§ What kind of coffee do you drink in the morning, and how do you prepare it?
I love to start the morning with a nice medium roast. I'll use a Chemex in the office, but an Aeropress if it's just for me.
§ What’s the one upgrade you wish you could add to your morning?
Oh boy... I guess I'd upgrade the view from my apartment. Seattle's a gorgeous city and it would be lovely to wake up to a view of the Puget Sound or Lake Union (I'm not too picky).
§ What do you consider the end of your morning?
When I'm out my door. I don't have much of a commute, so I'm basically at work.
