So much to do with so little time.

My day consist of:


  1. Wake up at 5:30 am. I make breakfast and get my food ready

(which I prep on Sunday Lunch and dinner for 3 days and prep again on Wednesday for another 3 days’ lunch and dinner)


  1. Get ready for school and make sure I have everything ready for work

(Leave the house by 7:30 am and make sure my dog LOBO has food)


  1. Get to school and read from 8:30 am until 9:20 am


  1. Class 9:30am-12:15pm


  1. Work 1pm-10pm (gym if I have time, if not after work)


  1. Go home and read for classes/ do homework 10:30pm -12:30am


And repeat! Repeat!


Where does the time go? We all have very busy lives and we try to do so much with so very little time! My grandfather always told me not to rush and to appreciate the time we have on this world! We get one life and no matter what we want in life (money, success, happiness, love, etc.) the one thing we can never get back is time. No amount of money can buy more time! Success can’t add more years to our lifetime. Happiness is great to have but time still passes and The Beatles said it best “it can’t buy me love”. My grandfather also told me that giving someone some of your time is better than all the money in the world because it shows that you care. We get so blinded by our ambitions that we lose track of the people we love the most. Valentine’s Day is coming up soon and although it’s great to buy someone a gift, it’s also the easiest way. I think about the lessons my grandfather shared with me which is to give the people you care about some of your time. I understand we all have very busy schedules but make time for your family and friends. You don’t need to have a romantic candle light dinner with them but give them a hug and share some kind words to show them that you appreciate them. I appreciate you all even if I don’t know you. I also hope that one day I get to share some of my time with you.



-I dedicate this to my mother that is worth of my time and to the people I wish I had more time to share with my grandfather and grandmother.

About ernieg

Aloha! My name is Ernie Gomez, I am a junior in the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland, College Park (UMD) attending The Universities at Shady Grove (USG) campus. I was born and in Los Angeles CA, and moved to Hawaii when I was 2O years old. I moved to Maryland in order to attend the prestigious Robert H. Smith School of Business at UMD. After graduating high school, I joined the Marine Corp but after eight years of service, I enrolled in college. My decision enabled me to obtain my Associates Degree in Business and Mathematics, at Palomar College in San Diego, California. After my move from California to Maryland, I looked for a top ranked business school that could help me further my education. The Robert H. Smith school easily became my top choice. When I was applying for college at Maryland, I learned of USG and the great resources available to students. After acquiring more information about USG, I just couldn’t resist. If you don’t know me! My hobby? Working on cars. Who inspires me? Anyone and everyone inspires me, because I know I can learn from every person I meet. However, I admire Eric Thomas who famously quoted, “When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful.” Words that describe me: Humble, Compassionate, Powerful, Honorable My goal: My goal is to move back to California, next to the beach and buy a home also in HAWAII. I am a humble, compassionate and honorable individual who strives to accomplish my life goals. If you see me around school, feel free to say “Hi” and start a conversation. USG is my #1 pick and I am happy to be a part of the USG community. I hope you enjoy my blogs and if you have any suggestions please feel free to reply to my post.
