I have just returned to my place about 10 days ago. I spent the winter break at my parents house doing absolutely nothing. Surprisingly, it contrasted to my own nature as I love being occupied and constantly tinkering with whatever is my current interest. However, that time, I decided to do something different. I did nothing. And by nothing, I mean waking up, playing video games until I am exhausted then I fall asleep. This was on repeat for about a month.
However, since I am back to my regular routine now, I have to think about a schedule. It is not easy to come up with a sustainable plan because fifty percent of my schedule is decided by my classes. I also have problem with diverse interest and indecisive so, to tackle this problem,I started to ask myself a very important question.
" What do I want to learn and do this semester?"
My answer was,
Within 6 months, I must attend all classes, I must get front-end certification, conversing in basic Portuguese and polishing my writing skill.
As I have managed to identify my priorities, I created a schedule that will allow me to reach my goals. So, apart from my classes, I set 2 hours every Monday- Thursday learning to code, 2 hours every Monday-Thursday learning Portuguese, and Friday exclusively to brainstorming business ideas or catching up with old projects whilst doing my homework or assignment.
In between of that, I try to put 30 minutes exercises, 1-2 hours relaxing before I go to sleep, and 30 minutes to reply important e-mails and online tasks.
During the weekend, I am mostly using it to pursue anything outside my main goal and current interest. On the side, I am also trying to catch up with friends since especially most of them are abroad also parents who live thousand miles away from me.
Anyway, If you ask me how much I sleep in the day, it's ranging from 5-8 hours.
