Not being in a formal internship program meant that I had to figure out ways to lock myself down and focus on the goals I had for that day. Without a regular 9-5, it’s really, really easy to do nothing, lay in bed, and just watch Netflix all day. To curb that and attempt to be productive, I decided that I needed to make a daily schedule. While it wasn’t super strict, here’s the play-by-play of what my summer days have looked like:
8:30am: Wake up, shower.
9:00am: Make breakfast (scrambled eggs, anyone?)
9:30am: Read from the summer reading list.
11:30am: Prep a dope lunch.
12:00pm: Eat a dope lunch.
12:30pm: Work on coding projects.
4:00pm: Grind on coding.
8:00pm: Go boarding.
8:15pm: Shower + Snack
9:00pm: Chill, relax, do nothing.
11:00pm: Keep reading from summer reading list.
That’s the schedule, and I tried to keep it as consistent as possible throughout the summer. It’s kept me sane, and more importantly it’s forced me to actually be productive. Self-starting is hard, but it’s absolutely worth it. So what was I actually working on? Stay tuned and you’ll see eventually 🙂
