I don’t have a steady work schedule. Work projects come in when they come in. Today was a heavy workday. I was tempted to declare it an day off from study, but instead I just made it a minimal study day. Short study periods are great for reviewing the basics. I didn’t have a lot of difficulty with resonance structures; however, I find sometimes that I go into autopilot mode when doing them. Reviewing the topic forces me to slow down and revisit the relevant concepts and processes at work. Sometimes studying isn’t so much about moving forward or getting the homework done; it’s more a matter of keeping up the habit of studying.
Numbers for the day:
Before 6 p.m.
Organic Chemistry – 45 minutes; review of resonance structures.
After 6 p.m.
Physics – 30 minutes; review.
Differential Equations – 30 minutes; review of problems I found difficult the first time through.
Workout — 60 minutes; 30 minutes on the treadmill (2.02 miles); short walk and basic exercises.
