An insight in my schedule:


Wake up and get ready to take a shower.


I have breakfast, pack my bag and take the bus to Uni.


Say hi to my friends, we pick our spot together in the lecture hall.
09:15 Today we have a lecture of "Urban economics and planning". 


I go out with my friends to the best spot in town to have lunch. It has delicious pizzas.


I come back to Uni to prepare for my workgroup.


The workgroup of this morning’s lecture is scheduled.


We are quite tired! I go home and see my girlfriend.
19:00 We have dinner and study together for about two and a half hours at my place.
22:00 We call it a day and we fire up some Netflix to watch ‘How I Met Your Mother’.
