Now that I’m back on track with my studies for almost 3 months now, I can safely say that my university life is taking so much of my time that I don’t have time to do anything else — and that includes using my leisure time for my hobbies because my leisure time is always spent with socialising with my friends and doing house chores that I don’t have time to do because I’m not always at home. Here’s the 5 things I wish I have more time for.

Blogging

Oh my god. I have been slacking on blogging these couple of months simply because I didn’t have time to sit down and write a proper post. My life isn’t what it was like when I took gap year last year and I realise now that juggling university and blogging at the same time is next to impossible. I’m thinking of cutting down my time outside and just be home and write, write, and write.

Reading

Aside from leaving my blog to dust, having my books literally covered with dust is much more agonising. I was that kid who received English to Malay vice versa dictionary for her 9th birthday from her father because she loved reading and English language so much but now.. what the hell happened. My 2017 book challenge is just a memory and we’re going into May with 0 book count. I’m so disappointed with myself.

Cooking home-cooked meal

When you’re a student, it’s much easier to buy outside food than preparing and cooking a meal because you just don’t have the time. I’m not even going to bother buying grocery stuff when I know that I won’t have time to cook that raw chicken which I’m 90% sure I will forget I have that in the freezer. I used to make chicken soup, soy sauce chicken, fried rice, rice porridge, and a heck lot of recipes with eggs, potatoes and mushrooms but now I don’t even have anything of mine in my rent house’s fridge. Sad.

Sleeping

Add 7 hour difference of long distance relationship into being a student equation and you’ll have me — I haven’t had a good night sleep since for ever and what’s 6-8 hours of sleep, anyway? Sometimes I went to bed early at around 12 am (that’s early for me) but I have difficulty in falling asleep sometimes until 3, 4 am and it drives me nuts when I have 8 am class in the morning. Shout out to my brain for keeping up with my f*cked up biological clock.

Resting

I love days where I can be in my PJs from morning till night and not having anything to do or anywhere to go the whole day and have my housemate buy me food for lunch and dinner because I’m such a lazy ass to go out. I miss days where I don’t have my friends asking me out and as much as I love spending time with them, I need a rest, too. I even forgot the last time I went home straight after class and took a 3-hour nap after lunch — that’s how busy I’ve been.

Are you a student who’s facing these, too?
