Time Management

As of September I have been working as a software engineer for a company that builds screen printing equipment. The company is a leader in its field and supplies circuit board printers to most of the major technology companies in the world. The job has been fantastic in giving me an insight of what the software engineer profession is all about. Being paid to do something you are good at and you enjoy is a great feeling and something you only dream about while you are struggling through tedious exams at school. However one unexpected problem has resulted from the nine to five working hours. Simply I have suddenly realised how many things I use to do in my spare time, and how much little spare time I now have. I feel my hobby time has rapidly been eroded and in the last 3 months I have done little towards my final year university project that by now I wanted the requirements to be completed. It has become apparent that better time management is in order if I wish to continue building the BridTEC brand, something that in the new year I hope to achieve.
