This semester I consciously decided to reduce my number of courses I take. As far as academic work is concerned I need to focus on finishing the first and second semester and finish my master thesis. I reduced the amount of work in associations, I do not take some law course (oh, that’s been some while!) and I don’t take any courses of higher semester.
I wanted to discuss the amount of time I want to invest into something. I fixed holes in my schedule and organized remaining time. I have several categories and every category as a minimum amount of time I invest per week. Good opportunity to document that for future reference:
- I consider 16 hours per day productive. So I have 8 hours of sleep per day.
- I invest 42.5 hours per week in attending lectures, tutorials, meetings, visiting the Aikido dojo and quality time.
- 69.5 hours are left. How do I use them?
There are 10 categories:
- programs I want to release, watch tutorials/videos, publishing content
- old courses I need to finish (exams, submissions)
- course Analysis 2 and everything related
- course Linear Algebra 2 and everything related
- course Foundations of Mathematics
- master thesis:
- releasing subprojects for my master thesis, writing thesis document
- course Japanese Language and everything related
- learning Japanese on my own (especially Aikido & math)
- exchange student year organization
- upcoming Grazer Linuxtage – graphics work
And how much time do I invest into each category at minimum?
This sums up to 34 hours and I have 69.5 hours available, so this is flexible on purpose.
But it gives a relative measure for future reference:
|project||3 hours per week|
|university||4 hours per week|
|A2||5 hours per week|
|LA2||4 hours per week|
|FOM||1 hours per week|
|master thesis||8 hours per week|
|JAP||3 hours per week|
|日本語||3 hours per week|
|日本||2 hours per week|
|GLT16||1 hours per week|
