It’s been two months. The first term will end after a final exam in next week. I’d be okay unless I make terrible mistakes. There were a lot of reading, searching, and programming.
This busy feeling is since the last time in 2016. I was always busy and did not have enough time to relax. Working and having life as a wife was hard.
I enjoyed work and life, at the same time I was tired, frustrated, and stressed.
After that I started reducing workday, to four-day, and to three-day, and got a remote work at last.
It was before Covid, it was summer in 2019, a year of the RWC in Japan. My dad was in hospital. I needed to drive mom to the hospital.
Work from anywhere became possible. I could work sitting next to dad’s bed in the hospital.
After the summer, I moved back to my home. Then Covid in 2020.
I had two jobs and both were remote work. Another few years past. During these years I started thinking about the university.
A big difference is no commute. No worry about dinner prep as I’m at home. It allows to have two to three free hours everyday. Also utilize lunch time for groceries.
When I go to the office in Tokyo, it’ll take 60-90minutes on commute and another 60-90minutes for household and ready for work.
Now those minutes are used for the studies. In the next term, a course or courses get harder, I may need more time but I think it’s going to be okay!
The university I’m studying is online specific, no physical campus exist.
All students are learning from many different places, they all seem to be busy and they are handling courses. So I should be able to do the same.
