How many coffeemakers does one break room need exactly?
I am not wrong in my titling with no spaces. There is no room for error in my current life setup, no space. Whether or not I’ve said this in the past, I have calculated my average hours between my internships, work, and school.
Throw in time to sleep (average 6 hours/night ): 42
There are 168 hours in one week.
Add in time for homework (2 hours for every 1 hour in class): 18
Time spent in my car: hour and a half on Monday, hour and a half on Tuesday, two and a half hours on Wednesday, 10 minutes (sweet, right?) on Thursday, two and a half hours on Friday, 1 hour on some Saturdays and 10 minutes on others, ZERO on Sunday.
Let’s say I spend roughly 10 hours in the car throughout the week (traffic factor).
I have 53 hours to delegate to family time, eating, working out, reading, writing, photoshopping for my three school associations, me time, and any excess homework.
Almost 70% of my week is not mine. That other 30% has to be spent wisely, which can be bad since I’m a huge procrastinator.
Take right now for example: I’m currently working on copies for my one internship. I needed a mental break to shift away from items that I will most likely one day be using and focus on how much time I don’t have. Do I like writing? Yes. If I didn’t I wouldn’t be writing a blog.
Although 53 hours is actually more than two days, they are not consecutive hours. If they were, well, I’d still be super busy. I stay up later than I should because I need time to unwind and I go out on Fridays when I probably shouldn’t since I have work at 9 the next morning. But sometimes I just need to get out of my normal routine and go out. Do something different, even if that means being tired at work the next day. My performance doesn’t suffer until I want to go out Saturday night. I nap is necessary for prime enjoyment. I may still be young, but staying out all night and working all day does not mesh well anymore. I desperately need a Monday-Friday nine to five so I don’t have to mesh staying out late with working early.
One day, right?
May is right around the corner and I’ll be super exhausted, but I can officially pursue a job because I’ll have that piece of paper that says, “You passed, welcome to the jungle.”
Thank you Guns N’Roses.
Now that you have read my frustrations, I apologize for the discombobulation of my thoughts. It’s time to head back to my other writing so I can get more than six hours of sleep tonight. Oh, and not turn into a pumpkin and strive to be in bed before midnight.
