Yesterday, I had a typical day as an Energy Engineer

I woke up at 6 feeling refreshed and ready for the challenges ahead.

After doing push-ups, squats, and sit-ups, I prepared myself a coffee and a sandwich.

Once breakfast was finished, I said goodbye to my family and started my commute to work. While driving I listened to a podcast.

When I arrived at the office, I settled into my workstation and began checking my work email

Then I prepared all that I needed for the afternoon wind farm inspection.

Around 10:30 AM, it was time for a quick break. I joined my colleagues in the breakroom, where we talked about last night’s basketball game and our weekend plans.

After the break, I returned to my desk and ordered some equipment necessary for the wind farm maintenance.


Lunchtime rolled around, and I headed to the office cafeteria with my colleagues. We chatted about Mr. Robot, The Boys and other Amazon Prime Video shows

In the afternoon, We checked the performance of the turbines.

As the workday drew to a close, I prepared the wind farm maintenance report. Then I shut down my computer and started my commute back home.


During my commute home, I listened to an audiobook called “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck”

When I got home, I played Minecraft and Roblox with my kids. We had so much fun.

I went to bed around 9
