Day in the Life: A Humber Fashion Student

Get a sneak peek into my life as a student of Humber College on a typical Monday. 10:00 AM My day starts with checking my phone, and after a hundred yawns later I get out of my bed.

Class starts around at 1:00 so this gives me time to prep for class, and also the late class timing works great for me because it gives me a lot of time in the morning to do my routine. When you are not really a morning person this works great! With a quick breakfast
