    Great, Diego! First do the math, and find out how many hours a week that means and schedule accordingly. Remember, planning on catching up later does not work: if you can't do 20 hours a week, nothing is going to change later so you can do 40... Also, doing a little extra buys you time off when you need it! Please post your progress!
