Now that the school term is over, I’ve been trying to get a move on some personal projects because
fire cold season begins in full swing! As much as I’ve loved being at my site consistently these past few months, I’ll unfortunately be out a decent amount coming up, so there’s even more of a time crunch!
I know people usually ask me what I do on the daily, so I’ve attempted to create a daily schedule below! Sometimes I’m super productive and busy; sometimes I’m extremely, unjustifiably lazy. Sometimes I spend all day with people; sometimes I don’t talk to anyone for almost the whole day. It really depends! But I’d say this is fairly accurate.
06:30 – 07:00
Wake up, check my phone for messages,
stretch derp around on the internet.
07:00 – 07:30
Get up, let the ducks out, feed them, fetch water for my plants and water them.
07:30 – 08:00
Reading and breakfast time!
08:00 – 10:00
10:00 – 12:00
Free time to do whatever happens to pop up (playing with kids if they come over, harvesting beans, reading, etc.). This is also the time I’d make any work-related phone calls.
12:00 – 13:00
Lunch! I usually sit in my house or under my veranda and (surprise!) either read or derp around on my phone.
13:00 – 15:00
Miscellaneous gardening! One day i re-potted my tree seedling, one day I added manure to my demo field and changed the duck pond water, another day I weeded my flower beds. That kinda stuff.
15:00 – 17:00
This is the prime time for meetings, so I try to get out of my house and socialize! Sometimes the meetings are serious planning meetings, sometimes just hanging out with friends.
17:00 – 18:00
Socializing with the family and bathing!
18:00 – 19:00
Dinner plus podcasts.
19:00 – 21:00
Reading or derping on my phone
21:00 – 06:30
