Due to various other things as part of ' Training', it takes time to set in any form of routine, especially in the initial few days

After a few weeks, one gets accustomed to everything going on, but in general, the sense of having a hectic routine shall persist

Regarding teachers and their methodology, everything and everyone have their own pros and cons, and this is a subjective issue

In general though: It is pretty good if you enjoy your subjects
