      Well I get to work just before 9 usually, and then I have to answer all my emails and things, then I study in the morning, then have lunch, then study more in the afternoon and I usually leave at 6 or 7 in the evening, so it depends on how much work I have to get done that week but usually between 40 and 50 hours a week. It might seem like a lot but I like studying so it doesn’t feel that long.

      Well you will have to explain to me what do you mean when you use the word study. If you are asking whether I “study” as if I was doing an exam then the answer is I do not study. However if you equate study with learning new things in your own time and space then I never stop studying. The aquiring of knowledge at your own pace, in areas that you have a great interest, is one of the great experiences of being alive. The secret is to find something that really interests you. At your age there is no need to rush. Take your time and you will find those topics you love and wish to explore for as long as you are able. In your studies aim for the stars, who knows you may be lucky and hit a planet.

      I don’t do study for exams or anything in my day to day work, but I do expand on my learning and my knowledge. I make sure I am up to date with what’s happening in my discipline. Although at the moment I am doing a course, which is why I can’t answer questions in the day because I have no access to the internet. But I am always learning new things, and so you could say that I am studying all the time.

      Well, I normally work from about 8 in the morning until 4 or 5 in the evening. I don’t have to do any studying for exams or anything like that anymore (phew – I hate exams!), but I am always learning new methods and skills. Sometimes I go on a course to learn more about a method (these are normally about 2 days long, 9 till 5), but I am usually learning something for at least 5 hours every week…whether I am teaching myself, reading about something, having someone tell me about something, or going to a course.
