A day in the life of… mxmtoon

From dusk 'til dawn with your favourite acts.

You know what’s easier than following around your fave up-and-coming indie-stroke-pop stars, day in, day out, to see what they’re up to? Asking them.

10:30am – wake up & coffee

I tend to wake up and immediately go see if my brother wants to get coffee. The answer 9/10 times is “yes,” so we go out to our favourite cafe! I always get an oat milk vanilla latte.

12:00pm – start my workday
Usually consists of promo for upcoming releases! So, doing interviews, grabbing videos, and whatever else is needed that day.

1:30pm – break
I tend to scroll through Twitter and TikTok or play 8ball with friends on Game Pigeon. If I have enough time though, sometimes I’ll walk out to a plant nursery and see what new leafy kiddos are available!

3:00pm – prime lunchtime
Usually consists of me ordering from my favourite pizza spot, Roberta’s. I’m trying to cook more and lately I’ve been making a lot of pasta and noodle dishes! Today’s was peanut noodles.

4:00pm – podcast time
I’ll record episodes for my daily podcast for a few hours. Takes me about 30 minutes to track an episode, and depending on the topic I’ll end up diving into more research on the subject just because it’s interesting!

7:00pm – dinner time!
My brother and I live together, so we also cook dinner together when we have the time! Our go-to recipe is salmon with white beans. It’s this older recipe that sounds kind of plain but is literally one of our favourite things to eat ever.

9:00pm – think about going to bed
As many of us do, I tend to aimlessly scroll around on my phone before bed, or I’ll watch some more episodes of whatever series I’m trying to get through. Right now I’m on season 3 of Community!

1:00am – actually go to bed
after a good few hours of meandering online or on Netflix, I’ll try to sleep. if i can’t, I listen to Animal Crossing music with rain noises… it’s soothing!
