A Typical Weekend

Weekends are always busy for me during the academic year. Honestly, every day is pretty busy for me! The difference is that I focus more on classes & less on homework during the week. Every weekend I turn my focus to completing homework, preparing for the week ahead, catching up on sleep, & seeing friends.

Here's what a this weekend was like for me-

3:05pm - finish class
4:00pm - blogger training
5:00pm - quick supermarket run
6:30pm - make fajitas with my roommates
8:00pm - host a surprise birthday party for my roommate & fellow blogger Lauren
1:00am - go to bed

9:00am - wake up
11:00am - finally get out of bed & make breakfast
2:00pm - binge watch scandal
6:00pm - complete some work for the blog program
7:30pm - research for possible summer internships
9:30pm - back to binge watching scandal
11:45pm - go to bed

9:00am - wake up & make breakfast
10:00am - start homework
12:30pm - blog
1:30am - lunch break
2:00pm - back to homework
12:00am - go to bed

Cozy in bed, blogging & studying

My weekends are usually pretty low key. I always make sure that I see my friends & that I sleep in & relax a bit. Sometimes I'll go skiing at Smugg's, go to a movie or downtown for dinner, or I'll attend one of the weekend events put on by the RA's. What stays constant is the mountain of homework that I work to complete on Sunday.

My big stack of work still left to study

It's going to be a busy day! One thing that's nice is that, though most of my classes are difficult & work intensive, I have a few easier classes to balance out all the work. It helps to have a mix of classes, otherwise I would be so overwhelmed!

Now I'm off, back to homework. Feel free to email with any questions!
