Whoo, I'm busy busy. I was daydreaming the other day in class, wondering where all my time goes. I mentally compiled a list of shit I do during the day, and I was amazed at the amount of stuff I 'get done'. I have to say, this is probably the busiest I've ever been -

Weekly Tasks-
  • Linear Algebra Homework (0.5-1.5 hours)
  • Probability Homework (0.5-1.5 hours)
  • CS Lab Preparation (0.5-1.5 hours)
  • Assorted other schoolwork (1-2 hours)
Total: 2.5-6.5 hours/week on schoolwork

Daily Tasks-
  • Azumanga Daioh currently, or some other series (1 hour)
  • Sword of Truth (2-5 hours)
  • Kingdom of Loathing (0.5-1 hours)
  • Maplestory (0.5-1 hours)
  • DEFCON (0.5-1 hours)
  • 4chan (0.5-1 hours)
  • Programming (0.5-1 hours)
Total: 6-9 hours/day on 'fun' ~ 35-40 hours/week

Shit, my life is going to suck when I have to get a job... which is going to have to be soon as I only have $800 to my name and the Wii is being released next month... grah.

At least I'm getting really good grades (almost all A's so far) this semester. Devoting more time to schoolwork worked wonders.

How does everyone else appropriate their time? What do you try to maximize in life?

For me, I break down my time pretty simple. I do it by priority:

1. WORK - I go to work, Monday - Friday from 9am - 5pm.

then after that I pretty much just do whatever the fuck I want. Its a pretty easy solution to figureing out what to do. I get paid, and I get to have fun. :)

ow does everyone else appropriate their time?

I wish I could get by on so little schoolwork time. [sad]

Per Week:

Algebra => 4-6 hours
Calculus => 4-7 hours
Comp.Sci. => 2-3 hours
GameDev Club (and related) => 3-5 hours
Gaming (Oblivion, etc) => ~3-4 hours
Personal GameDev => 1-3 hours

So there's a good 10-16 hours of homework a week, and virtually no time for Skirmish or 'fun coding'. On the upside, I'm getting better marks now than I was in highschool. :P

What do you try to maximize in life?

The numbers say homework, but I'd love to expand my free time. Maybe one day..
