If you’re like me, you have a daily routine for each day of the week. This routine usually begins at the beginning of each semester and remains this same. This means I can prioritize activities like school, work, and KTSW easily, but it also means I only make time for these things throughout the week. There are some things I wish I had time for, but I just can’t seem to fit them in my schedule Monday through Thursday.
For the most part, my weekends are much more relaxed than weekdays. Last weekend, I watched season seven of Shameless in 2 days. Trust me, that was on my weekend to do list since I don’t have time to do that during the week, but it made me think. I have more time than I think I do on the weekends. I’m not sitting in class or at office hours. I could use whatever free time I have to do something productive and good for my well being. Working out is something I will forever make excuses for during the week. From now on, I will make that part of my schedule on the weekends.
If cleaning is something you have a hard time doing during the week, make it a priority the morning your weekend begins. Blast your favorite music and clean away. You will feel so much better and more comfortable in your own home if your apartment is clean. I am a firm believer that your living environment is usually how you treat yourself, so keep a clean surrounding.
Keeping up with my family back home can be hard sometimes, too. They all have busy lives as well. My parents work all day during the week and my sisters are in school. I love hearing about their lives as much as I love telling them about what I’ve been up to here in San Marcos. This is the easiest thing I’ve begun to prioritize. I love facetiming my family. So far it has become something I do at least once a week.
From now on each weekend, I will be catching up with family more, screenwriting, practicing the guitar, and working out. Think about what you wish you could have more time for during the week, and make it a priority this weekend.
