Hack Reactor Life Schedule

For those of you curious about what my day-to-day is like, here's a break down of my average schedule for the past few weeks.

5:30-6am wake-up
6-8am running/yoga + studying + shower + getting ready for the day
8:15-8:30am walk to Hack Reactor
8:30-9am second breakfast + studying + talking
9am-12:30pm lectures + pair programming + toy problems + reflections + other things
12:30-1:30pm lunch (every other day, lunch is two hours long)
1:30-5:30pm lectures + pair programming
5:30-6:30pm dinner
6:30-8pm lecture + pair programming
8-9pm guest talks/hackathons/coding
9-10pm walk home + get ready for bed + cook lunch for tomorrow

  • I usually go to bed around 10/10:30.
  • There's enough breathing space during the day that I don't feel at all hurried.
  • Saturdays are a little more laid-back at Hack Reactor. It is the same day schedule, except from 6:30pm to 9pm we have a social night (no coding!).
  • On Sundays, I usually do some kind of work-out (yoga/running), meet up with non-HR friends, study, do laundry, or go grocery shopping.
