- 10.20: get up
- 10:20-10:30: shower, get dressed, comb hair, leave for job
- 10:30-11: travel to job, getting breakfast and eating it while walking
- 11: arrive at job
- 11am-7pm: work on various projects at job - most of them tech in nature, such as log analysis, SEO, and database stuff
- 7-8pm: travel home, shower, change out of job clothes, grab a snack
- 8-11pm: work on ADISC stuff, answering PMs, dealing with request threads, sorting out various things, fix a bug or two, etc, usually with TV news on in background
- 11pm-1am: eat dinner while playing videogames, like StarCraft II (c'mon rank 1, diamond league!)
- 1-2am: prepare for bed - check job email to answer late-night requests, check off TO-DOs and make tomorrow's TO-DO list
- 2am: bed, spend 30 minutes mentally winding down from the day
- 2:30am: sleep
(times are approximate)
- 6-8h sleeping, depending on if/how many times I wake up
- 8-9 hours working at my job
- 3-ish hours working on ADISC
- 30-45 minutes eating
- 2-3 hours of personal/fun time
- 2 or so hours of misc things like travel and such
(again, times are approximate)
So, now, if you ever wanted to know "what's Moo's life like?" - now you know.
Well, you know about the weekdays. Weekends revolve around sleep, ADISC, and errands (like doing laundry, buying food, and so on).
Today's Cow Thoughts:
- Work on something you love, and it won't seem like work.
- For me at least, a good job tends not to be 9-5. It tends to involve longer hours (employers want unpaid overtime), but flexibility about when, during the day, you work those hours.
- Have a hobby. Preferably, a hobby which gives you lasting satisfaction by training your skills, challenging you, allowing you to help others, or some combination of these.
- Reserve time each day to let your hair down, and have some real fun.
- Plan your days. Know what you will do each day before it comes, and your days will be more productive. You won't always be able to stick to the plan, but having a plan ensures you'll get more done than if you had no plan.
- Make sure those quick but important things (like eating, taking your vitamins, etc) are in your plan.
