    If I'm in for a 9-5 day, I'll generally leave at 8.25 and get home at ~5.20 (I give myself more time than necessary in the morning so I've time for a coffee).

    Add another 15 minutes either side if I'm meant to be in Whitechapel and not Farringdon.
    Getting their early for coffee is quite the good plan. We have a brew every morning once we re set up but normally end up taking sips between customers.

    I m sure they get plenty of hungover freshers in hoodies in those lectures. Yeah it's getting the bus which adds over a hour to my day, I actually work 8 30 to 6.

    Haha yeh, but they can just roll out of bed into lectures

    Yeh - someone actually suggested to me I drive in every day from where I live. When seeing that it would've been about £990/month to park, not even considering fuel, running costs, I stuck to £625/month getting the train xD I do not like buses xD

    £990 that's just crazy, I don't love buses but it's my only option until hopefully we move next week and I ll just walk 3 miles a day instead.

    Well my job involves being on my feet for 8.5 hours but I suppose walking gives me an excuse to eat more

    Depends, my day varies quite a lot:

    Mondays: Up at 7am for a 9am lecture, gap between 10 and 2, finished by 4pm
    Tuesday: Up at 6am for archery at 7:30, then nothing until 2pm, finished by 4pm
    Wednesday: Up at 7am for a 9am lecture, finished at 11am
    Thursday: Up at 7am for a 9am lecture, gap between 10 and 3, finish at 5pm then anime society at 6 until 9 or gaming 7 until midnight
    Friday: Only lecture is 2-3pm, fencing is 7:30 until 10pm, usually back by 11pm.
    Saturday: Free all day so I get up whenever
    Sunday: Up at 7am for archery at 8:30, finish at 11:30

    So I'm up at 7 or earlier most days and the only days I finish late are Thursdays and Fridays. I'm pretty happy with the daily routine because I have enough time to fit in all the extra stuff I want to do.
