Plans for stability
Starting this summer, I will try the 9 am-5 pm schedule for my research work. This should increase my research progress, while leaving me enough time to enjoy the short summer.
For now, I am taking two courses and TAing another one, while pushing myself a bit to get some research results. The course work spans over all my time, usually taking a good portion of my weekends. However, during summer I wouldn't have course work obligations and I would work on a full-time basis on my research. I also need to mention that I would NOT work on weekends. At least that's the plan. I shall see how it goes.
