8:00 AM: Now it’s time to get started with my studies! I turn my computer on, get my notebook ready (I prefer to handwrite my notes), enter Coursera and start watching today’s lectures. This morning I’m studying Computer Security.
10:00 AM: I exercise three days a week and today is one of those days! I run for 22 minutes before doing some push-ups. While exercising, I listen to some podcasts. When I’m done, I take a shower.
11:30 AM: Time to practice Italian. I’m bilingual as I speak both Spanish and English fluently, and now I want to become a polyglot. I currently have a 453-day streak in Duolingo. L’italiano è una lingua molto bella! (Translation: Italian is a beautiful language)
11:50 AM: I take the first break of the day. I might continue studying Italian for a few more minutes or check the messages in the Computer Science Slack server. It’s a great community, and I have had the chance of meeting classmates from all over the world. It’s amazing to get the chance to interact with people from different backgrounds and cultures!
1:00 PM: Time to eat lunch with my family. This is the moment where we get together and talk about what we have done so far during the day.
2:00 PM: I read the articles I left earlier or that have been published throughout the day. I may watch a video I have found interesting on YouTube.
3:00 PM: I continue studying. Depending on the day and workload, I continue studying my UoL modules. Perhaps completing some exercises or doing the essential reading. If not, I use my spare time to explore extra-curricular courses.
