I created a timetable this morning to make sure I do enough studying and it shows how few things I can actually do at the moment. My whole life is summarised in one small timetable.
What I’ve put in my timetable
I started the timetable to make sure I do enough work. In my time table, I have put in 6 hours of work per subject per week, which hopefully is enough. I can do more if I want to. The college I am enrolled with says you should allow 250-300 hours of studying per subject, not including time to do the assignments. I think I will need more time as I need such high grades, at least an A in each subject. I want to finish learning everything in the courses by February 2020 at the latest. This means I will have a lot of time to revise and consolidate my learning.
In my timetable, I also had to set aside some time to eat. I sometimes forget when I’m busy learning. I didn’t do exact times, as I may not be hungry, but I just left an hour aside for each meal.
The other thing I had to timetable was reading in the evening, so I don’t go on my phone or watch TV. I get insomnia and the blue light emitted from screens keep you awake. If I don’t get enough sleep, I won’t be able to work, which was the whole point of the timetable.
I’m not surprised about how everything in my life can fit in the timetable with lots of free space, but I don’t like not having anything to do. That’s why I’m so eager to do some work. Watching TV is really boring now.
