I didn’t go to any more parties last weekend. That turned out to be a wise decision! This Master program is hard. Extremely hard. The minimal expectations are that you work 60 hours a week. 60 hours a week! I did 11 yesterday, and I was completely tired. I try to do 10 hours a day, and have Sundays off to relax, bike, and write my blog.
The trick is to get up early, start working immediately, use all the hours you have. No television, and (almost) no games. That’s the best way to do it. Use your spare time with friends: social interaction is most important.
Anyway… It’s quite stressful, and I hope I’ll get used to it. It is possible. I survived one day. That’s a start.
I’ll get back to you with interesting stuff about my courses this weekend. Monday is Labour Day, so I’ll have an extra day off to reflect on my situation.
Wait a minute. This sounds way too whiney. Hey, it’s all new, all unfamiliar. As soon as I get in the mood, I probably won’t notice the hard work anymore! The stuff I’m reading now is really interesting. And you know what? We get to put it into practice immediately! It’s going to be hard, but it’s going to be cool!
