I've been studying like mad these past few days. Supposedly I've been on half-day study leave this entire past week, but I realized the other day a "half day" means a 7-hour work day, followed by hours on continous studying.
I never realized how long my working hours were until I was startled by my roommate's return the other day as I was studying at home. She was just in to drop off her things before heading right out to see a movie with her fiance. I was stupefied - off of work before 6pm with plenty of time to see a movie on a weeknight? Practically unfathomable! That, and also that I start work before she gets up in the morning.
