William Wu


My name is William and I just finished my bachelor degree in business and will now continue on doing a masters. University can be very busy so it's important to have a routine to stay focused and motivated. Here is my daily routine as a student at QUT.

7.00 AM

Ever since I was a child I always wake up when the alarm rings (sometimes I even may wake up an hour earlier). I make myself a cup of coffee and then a new day of my student life begins.

8.00 AM

The first thing I do in the morning is going to the gym. Usually, I will control the intensity of training and time to one hour. As a young adult living with the motto 'time is the most precious treasure in the world', I try to make the best use of it',  Afterwards I might listen to the recordings of some tutorial or watch some documentaries.

9.15 AM

Taking a hot shower after a sweaty gym session is always the best. When I finish the gym, I usually have breakfast and briefly check the news and then I'm ready for uni.

9.30 AM

Normally I will switch to study mode at 9:30 am, but due to the outbreak this year,  most things are online, so time is more flexible. The first thing I will do is checking my school calendar to see if I have classes to attend today. If it indicates yes, I will first do class reviews and prepare a list of questions to ask during the classes. If I have no class to do, I will start doing my assignments and then move to the internship work.

12.00 PM

I try to keep my first two and a half hours of study time uninterrupted. To do so, I first prepare enough water and some snacks (nuts and fruits) and always stay in my room. If I am on campus, I will stay the whole time in the study room in the library. When the clock strikes 12 noon, I will stop studying and go for lunch. Thanks to work and study at home, I can prepare lunch without spending extra money on eating outside.

After lunch and cleaning up the dishes, it's time for the big time of my time, which I call it 'the big boy'.  Again, I will prepare enough water, several full bottles, and a snack for the rest of the day.

In the next hours, I will attend a tutorial or a class, communicating with my supervisors and teammates in my internship. Usually, it will take more than three hours, sometimes will even go beyond four hours.

4.00 PM

After a long day, I prefer to go to the gym again for a refresh. If I don't finish until 4:00 pm, I would postpone the refresh to 5:00 pm. Compared to the morning workout, the afternoon workout is focused on cardio such as rowing and cycling.

5.00 / 6.00 PM

To me, when I finish the refresh workout, the study the day is over. The evening I will spend having dinner with my roommates or dinner on my own, hanging out and chatting on face time with my family.
