Things I need to do by the end of the week
1. OSD (open source course):
- blog on lab1 (1h)
- blog on lab2 (1h)
- Lab 3 (3h)
2. SPO (software portability course)
- lab1 report (1h)
lab 2 (4)
- draw 2 vertical lines on 6502 emulator using assembly
- wright report (+1h)
lab 3 (defer to next week)
3. CVI (computer vision course)
- watch about 2-3 hours of missed lectures (defer to next week)
4. Wright my DND character sheet and story, people are waiting (1.5h)
What have I been doing? Why is everything so late?
I have watched all SPO lectures
I was working on SPO lab3 in lab time with 2 partners, we did not get far, but it helped.
I was working on SPO lab2 partner for 2h, we was able to draw only the upper line, but I think 4 more hours, and I will be able to finish it. Will understand enough assembly.
I have watched half of OSD lectures (at-least I already know a lot how git works, but I will definitely catch up)
I did osd release 1 code, lab 2 code.
l have watched half of CVI lectures
I have been doing all the CVI labs right on class lab time (I have amazingly smart partners, but I am also engaging within my skills)
I do have a full time work, that is an absolute priority.
I did not have time on weekends
(except one day I had full 16h. I could have caught-up with most of my work. However I could not bring myself to do anything. Probably due to stress factor from having too much things to do) Any way, it looks like I can do work in smaller chunks. Also, I usually take quite a lot of time before I start, and some time between tasks.
How much time (before the end of the week) do I have, to finish all the tasks above?
Friday: 5h from now to bed time. (max 4 of them could be productive) Saturday: 2h between my gym and guests. (And no time until Sunday evening ) Also, from my experience 2hours are not enough time to even get started. Sunday: if I am home by 7-8, it would leave me about of 3 productive hours, unless I am too tired from all of the hiking.
How I plan to send my available time then?
Low hanging fruits:
- 2h to blog
- 1h to stair into code and think on lab 3 DND:
- 1h of character sheet SPO: 1h to spend on a lab2, trying to do some code
- 2h to work on lab 2, and perhaps start on blog report.
OSD lab 3 for all the time that's left.
(Note, from the few lines above where it was 5:00 pm, now it is 5:50; resulting with less time to work)
Why are you taking all these courses, you don't seem to have time for them?
They are fascinating. I might not learn as much from them as I could, but something is better then nothing.
If I I manage to finish them all well, means I have improved my time management skills by a lot.
I want to get masters eventually. However I need good grades. So I am sometimes getting a course, and if grade is bad, dropping it on the last day.
And now it is 6:00pm, so I am off to execute my plan.
