So, what to do? Cut down on television, recreational reading, USENET - certainly (though the first two probably accounted for about 7 hours a week total). Double up on technical reading and organization of seminars and journal groups - check. Prioritize my research and advising schedule - sure (though I dknot like to cut Ph.D. students' time to less than an hour a week and have already narrowed other individual meetings to 15 minutes).
A person who's quite good at time management told me when I started university that music is a great way to relax and unwind without wasting too much time and attention. Fedinately goond advice.
That pretty much leaves only sleep, which I haven't borrowed heavily against this semester yet, and eating time, which I have - much to Burger King's profit and my personal chagrin (see The Lay of Cholesterol). I'm knot forswearing showers as the Gret Unwashed One of TEUNC has, though! #-)
