Running Out of Time


I had a panic attack today.

You think that an inspired-accountant-to-be would have figured this out before she quits her job and goes back to school. You think that a soon-to-be-twenty-nine-year-old would know how to manage her life. Well…

So I did a reality check. In a 168-hours week, I need to:
· Work for 18 hours
· Attend classes for 15 hours
· Study minimum of 16 hours
· Exercise for 5 hours at the gym
· Take 8 hours commuting between home and work/school
· Spend about 13 hours eating
· Get at least 56 hours of sleep
· Spend approximately 10 hours in the bathroom

This leaves me with 27 hours a week, which is an average of 3.8 hours per day to do whatever else that I want to do. The fact is, I am running out of time!

After all, I would still like to hang out with family and friends, sleep an extra hour or two, watch movies or Japanese dramas, write bits and pieces of thoughts for my websites, yap on the phone, take self-expressive photos with my digital camera, read inspirational books or just flip through magazines and newspapers...

If I am organized enough, think I can still have a decent life?

Hey 44

Going back to school makes me realize a lot of things. All of sudden everyday life seems a lot more precious. What a strange feeling! I think that having specific goals in mind really helps. They motivate you to go out there and get things done!

i think i meant to leave the previous msg on your msg board.

by reading this article again today gave me a panic attack as well!

i already don't sleep much each day, and yet i still don't get my things done, it's just never enough time. i feel like i'm wasting my life away, it's a bit scary.
