A Day in the Life of Josh H.


I discovered the Monterey Institute almost a decade ago when I was stationed up the street at the Defense Language Institute. I got out of the Army in 2009, and coming full circle I made my way back to Monterey to attend MIIS. Thanks to the Yellow Ribbon Program I’ve been able to fulfill my dream of studying international policy at the graduate level.


A bit of a non-traditional student, I am married (this weekend is actually our 7-year anniversary), I have two dogs and two cats, and I don’t live actually live in Monterey near campus. Each morning my two corgis, Watson and Bentley, wake up me up around 6 am ready to start the day. After feeding them and packing a lunch for my wife, I see her off to work around 7:30 am. Every other day I’ll then work out for an hour or so, usually doing circuits of bodyweight-type exercises such as pushups and pull-ups in my apartment, along with some cardio. Around 9 am I’ll tire the dogs out playing fetch at a park up road,   then while they sleep I’ll shower and really start my day! By 10 am, I’ll put my nose to the grindstone and work on homework throughout the afternoon/evening and drive to campus as needed to attend class. Evenings I’ll catch up on Game of Thrones or maybe watch some classic episodes of the Twilight Zone before heading to bed and starting it all over the next day!
