As I sit here, on a Saturday morning, sipping a freshly brewed cup of coffee, I can only breath for a moment before my weekend begins with fill itself with reading, writing, housework, errands, and internship work. Two full days I’ll have to myself to enjoy without a having to go to a job or school, yet some form of work is necessary to create the set up of a smooth and successful next week.
The rest of the fourteen weeks are probably going to look exactly the same as last week. Work, internship, and school. Work, homework, and school. Work, internship, and school. This will be the rhythm for at least four days straight. There are two days in which I’ll have three hours to take care of personal business. Life management items that can only be done during business hours.
As far as homework is concerned, I didn’t realize how much reading is necessary. My philosophy instructor has given us three chapters to read along with a one or two page paper to write by Wednesday. My cinema instructor has issued the class two chapters to read. And finally, my economic professor has us reading one chapter for class. All this has to be read over the next two days. The philosophy paper (given the amount of time I’ll have during the week) should be in it’s first draft by Sunday evening.
What I’ll have to sacrifice
Now that I have each syllabus for every class, I can see that entertaining the idea of creating some sort of social life is completly out of the picture. There is a photography Meet-Up tomorrow that I thought about attending. If I haven’t completed 80% of my homework by tonight, I’m going to forgo that idea. Also, I can’t even see where I can fit in trying to earn some extra cash from. There really isn’t any time left.
