Goals of this post:
- Show my average daily schedule as a student at UofT
Wake up and get ready
Lately I have been trying to wake up earlier, but we all know how hard that is. I usually wake up around 7 am for my 9 am classes. After waking up, I brush my teeth and take a shower.
I used to skip breakfast a lot but realized that I get hungry around 10 am. Now I try to eat something small like a bagel with a yogurt.
Chill out for a bit
After eating I go back to my room and browse social media for a bit to catch up on the world. If there’s nothing interesting, I usually try to finish some work that needs to be done.
I leave my house at 8:30 am for school. It takes approximately 15-20 mins depending on how the TTC is feeling.
CLASS 1: Computer Fundamentals Lecture / APS105
CLASS 2: Materials Science Lecture / MSE101
CLASS 3: Calculus 2 Lecture / MAT187
12:00 pm – 2pm
During my breaks I usually finish up some work while eating. I also hang out with some of my friends since our schedules match up pretty well.
CLASS 4: Earth Systems Science Lecture / CME185
Probably the most boring class of the semester. It’s easy, but makes you fall asleep.
CLASS 5: Engineering Strategies & Practice II Lecture / APS112
This is the largest class in first year, so you are in a class with half of the first year engineering students. You also get a chance to meet people in other disciplines.
4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
CLASS 6: Engineering Strategies & Practice II Tutorial / APS112
In this tutorial, each student meets up with their team to discuss and further enhance the designs they have. Each group is assigned a company which has given the group an engineering problem they have to solve. My group and I are currently developing an app that can be loaded onto a restaurant manager’s order-taking device that will take summaries of orders taken, revenue, and profit from several food delivery apps. The developed app will provide recommendations to optimize revenue streams among various apps.
6:00 pm – 6:30 pm
Going Home 🙂
Chill for a bit and eat
After a long day of school, I relax for a bit before eating. My roommates and I are all home around this time so we just hang out in the kitchen.
Time to sleep
I try to sleep as early as I can (if I don’t check my social media for a bit before sleeping haha).
