I take my classes from home, so I do have more time than I would if I chose to go to my closest college, which is over an hour away! I do millions times better doing it from home. I don't always have time for extra things, especially when my assignments are due, which is coming up this week. Usually I have to cut myself off from EF--well, from the world entirely--while working on an assignment for a day or two. I am a writer, that's what my schooling is, so I really have to concentrate. It's like an entire damn ritual when I go to work on a story or book. I have to take a day to clean the house, especially my work space spotless. Then I usually need a nice inspiring little moment. Usually that includes being outdoors in one of the lovely wide, open spaces out here on the mountains, or if I'm lucky a nice visit to the tanning bed will get things going for me. For me, there's nothing quite as relaxing as 20 minutes cut off from everything, tanning. I don't know what it is.
So, it totally depends on work, kids, and school. I usually manage to get on EF daily, even if it's just a few minutes at night. Tonight is one of those nights where I have little time to be on. However, when I am in the middle of a lecture or something like that, I can open another tab in my browser and do EF stuff while getting in on my lectures and other online assignments! Ha Ha. I love that. Sometimes I'll just download the entire lecture to my Kindle, spend some time relaxing instead, and then take my Kindle with me the very next day and have my partner drive us. That gives me time to do extra and just squeeze a lecture or two in while in the car. I like that because when you're in the car, you really can't do anything or get other things done, so it's nice to squeeze something important in during a drive.
