What's your physique?

how can I be more efficient? Any tips on and off the dojang? Since it is only twice a week, I feel that I need to also do some research and training during my off-days. However, I only can do it in the confines of my apartment because a gym is out of the question and I do not have time to take up another discipline.
Once you're comfortable sparring TKD, maybe try sparring people from other backgrounds.
Also, this is a vague question, but how can I make Taekwondo into something more practical? I am not starting a debate on whether this is good for self-defense, but what I want is for the things I learn to become "muscle memory" and possibly be of use in certain situations.
A heavy bag or wavemaster would be ideal, but in an apartment you might have some trouble.
Finally, what exercises can I do to inject more power into my kicks and punches? Sorry, it should be commonsense, but back then, I never did any extra-curricular training apart from those tri-weekly classes.
