I am 19 years old. I moved from Toronto to Montreal three years ago to come to Concordia. I live downtown a short distance from the Concordia campus with my girlfriend of two years. I have two classes, one takes place on Wednesday nights and the other is online. I spend two or three days a week in Ottawa working in residential construction. In those two days I spend around twenty hours at work. I started my time diary the day after my second day of work on my way back to Montreal.
Trends and Patterns My time diary revealed that over three days (72 hours) I spent a total fifty five hours on essential activities. These activities include eating, showering, cleaning, studying and sleeping. An average of 18.3 hours per day was comprised of these essential activities. The remaining seventeen hours I considered leisure. An average of 5.6 hours per day was spent on leisure activities including watching television, surfing the internet, spending time with my girlfriend and socializing with friends. I decided to subtract sleep from my essential activities to look at my activity while I was awake. This yielded a total of 28 hours spent on essential activities. An average of 63% of my awake hours were spent in leisure down from 31% with sleep included. The time I spent on leisure was spontaneous and at different times of the day. Most of my time is open and it is up to me to use it wisely. Since I did not have many plans, I was free to fulfill my obligations
