I dare not look at the statistics for this site, as I’m sure nobody checks it anymore, which is great cause I can write whatever I want and it wont matter!
I had a chat with Nick a while ago, and we commented how good it would be to have an online calendar which informed people of what we are doing all the time, and it would be great to know what your friends are doing as well. This would of course make catching up with everyone so much easier. However you would have to be very carefulbecause you could never hide behind the old – sorry its my mums b’day – because everybody would know your fibbing!
So the point is, if I haven’t been in touch recently, its because this is what my life is like at the moment:
Assuming a full day comprises 0800 – 2400 There are 16 Hours a day.
Subtract 6 Hrs a day for everyday chores. (2 Hrs a day Travel. 3 Hrs a day for food preperation and consumption. 1 Hr a day for when you forget your keys, etc.)
Assume a 5 day working week (10 x 5) = 50 Hours a working week.
Work: 20 Hrs a week.
Contact hours at uni: Estimate 12 Hrs a week.
Recommended study time: 28Hrs (9 articles * 4 hours ea)
Total: 60 Hrs.
There goes 10 hours of the weekend before I even get started! Can I really do 16 hour days for a whole year? Simon?
Can I manage to fit some tutoring into this schedule? I’d love to… but it seems crazy. But then, as Brett (Masters student doing some revision with us lowly honours students) rightly points out… he is lecturing at UWS, running an accounting practice and looking after two kids (in conjunction with his wife). Surely I can fit it in right?
ok, I’ll stop bitching now, but just letting everybody know what I’m doing these days and to inform you of why I might get pissed of if you don’t return my phone calls or messages etc etc… oh and yes mum, this is why I hardly call home as well!
