Ever wondered what life is like for other grad students? Now’s your chance! This ‘day in the life’ series will give you a peek inside an average day for students from different disciplines and at different places on their academic journey. First up – my average Tuesday.
7:00-8:00 - Rise and shine! I like to get up reasonably early because I’m most productive in the morning.
8:00-10:30 - I have an assignment due soon so I’m busy working on that. Also tidying my apartment, making lunch, and sending a few emails.
10:30-12:30 – Office hours. I’m a TA for a second year class. Nobody shows up (typical) so I do readings and chat with my officemates.
1:00-2:30 - Class. I only have one class on Tuesdays. I have either one or two every other weekday.
2:30-3:30 - Time to pick up some groceries, do a couple errands, and head home.
3:30-6:30 - Research. There’s an annotated bibliography for my Research Methods class that needs to get done.
6:30-9:00 - Meet up with friends for a potluck dinner. Delicious!
9:00-10:00 - One final bit of research work before my day is done.
10:00-11:00 - I like to spend the last hour, or at least half hour, of the day relaxing before bed. Perfect time for yoga, playing guitar, and chatting on the phone with the boyfriend.
