Sixty Minutes

Today’s daily prompt is, Twenty-Five Seven:

Good news — another hour has just been added to every 24-hour day (don’t ask us how. We have powers). How do you use those extra sixty minutes?

Wow! That would be nothing short of a miracle to add an extra hour to the regular 24 hours—and seems like the daily post has more super powers than any other super heroes!

Back to the question. What would I be doing during those extra sixty minutes? Hmm.

Sometimes, I desperately wish I had more time to do a significant amount of reading or writing during the day. Because, I work from 8am to 8pm (two jobs, actually) on weekdays—except Tuesday (my only day off!)—and also from 8am to 5pm on Saturday s and 1pm to 6pm on Sundays, respectively. I have my TKT Cambridge lectures at a college on Sunday morning until 12; thus I have a little amount of time each day to manage my other personal work or hobbies. I know. My schedule is terrible.

Time management is a valuable must-have skill that everyone must excel and surprisingly,—even though I am a spiral-clock26-year-old—I am not one of those gifted people. I do, however, manage to use my time and each day productively and make use of the 24 hours the best way possible, but sometimes, it’s just impossible and I would end up disappointing myself. On weekdays, once I’m home, I have my dinner, relax and fall asleep without even checking my emails or anything. I rarely can afford to stay up late and read a book because I am more than sleepy when I get home from work and then I have to be up early the next day.

Probably, the only thing you’d see me doing in that extra hour is more reading and writing. I mean 60 minutes may not sound like a lot of time to some people, but I’d at least be able to read half a book or finish off a book in those extra minutes which is pretty awesome. And, if..if I don’t feel like being productive on a particular day, I can always take that extra hour for some napping!
