comment how to gain interest back in programming?
Further to @JanDoggen's comment, it is customary to start English sentences with a capital letter, and to leave a space after the full-stop at the end. The workd "I" should also be capitalized. If you want people to take the trouble to answer your question, then it would be polite to take a little more trouble in the way that you ask it.

comment What is the best way to schedule your day?
As for your specific question, it depends on the friend, the favour and what I need to give up to meet my friend's needs. For me, my immediate family's needs normally take priority over my friend's, but my friend's needs would take priority over putting in extra hours at work.

comment What is the best way to schedule your day?
That's a big question in itself! I've actually spent a lot of time thinking about what really matters to me, and I continue to re-evaluate my value system based on on new information and insights. The importance I place on things is influenced by my faith, the people around me, my teachers and (for good or ill) my personality. I found Stephen Covey's books, "First Things First" and "7 Habits" provided helpful guiance on how to think about these things.

comment How to reduce the usage of mobile at home?
As for family activities, there are lots of options. Going for a walk, sport, playing board games, just having a chat, doing chores together, playing with your kids, watching a movie, sharing a hobby, making stuff, playing video games... Your best bet is to ask them what they like doing.

Choice of blocking app will depend on what platform your phone uses. Some routers offer a site blocking function, as do some ISPs. Personally, I use my router's time-based profiles at home and Leech Block for Firefox at work (because I use a desktop there).

comment I procrastinated and now I'm in the hole several assignments deep, where do I begin the climb out?
You can't. Your last line is the giveaway: you're still focusing on parties and spending time with friends and not getting "too far" off course. If you were really serious about getting back on track, you wouldn't want to get off course at all. But you're not there yet. You think I'm wrong? Prove it.

comment How to deal with vague tasks?
The best way to determine if something is readable and understandable is to get someone to read and understand it. If nobody else is available, you'll have to do it yourself. So the specific tasks might be, (1) attempt to find reader or (2) read through work and identify problems. There is no magic formula for judging clarity, but with experience you'll learn about the general principles.

comment How do I set aside time for leisurely reading?
Could you increase your time on the subway? I've never been to NYC, but if it is anything like the London Tube you could travel the wrong way a couple of stops and then go back the right way again.
