Well, it is very hard. Believe me, it’s not only about studies and BAJA but also about other stuff. I don’t get time for anything else than these two.
I will tell you about my routine.
10 am to 4 pm we have college and not supposed to do any activities related to BAJA. So we can only continue after 4 pm. Then we are in our workshop generally till 8 pm, as submissions of reports started it goes till midnight and as event date comes closer it goes till morning.
So you can see it is very hard to manage even these two things and forget about other stuff. What I have experienced is, you attend lectures regularly that will take care of your academics and after 4 pm focus on BAJA, that’s it. Apart from that I never get a chance to hang out with my friends or go out on weekends or to give time for hobbies or attend family functions or simply for sleeping.
Many of my friends complain to me about not giving them replies on time or not calling them or not even receiving their call and then call back or not even message them. Simply because I can’t. But still, I make sure that I at least give replies on time.
If you are willing to do both BAJA and academics you will also have to sacrifice many things like me otherwise you will end up with nothing in your hand…
But the most effective thing I do to manage my time is I write down my short term goals, long term goals, the things I am supposed to do from an academics point of view and from BAJA’s point of view and I try to follow it closely so that I don’t waste my time.
