I'm wondering how others manage the demands of work lives and the desire to attend to your lucid dream 'training'.
(Although, as an aside, and a point of interest, once during a dream, the alarm went off in real life, and it appeared in my dream as a splash of red across the dreamscape; like red paint. As I awoke the color became the sound. Hard to explain. )

If I were you, I would prioritize dream recall over practicing MILD. There is no point in trying to induce a LD if you forget the darn thing. Once your dream recall is good enough, you should practice MILD or other techniques.
I do a LOT of RC's, though it depends on the situation; being concentrated on homework means less reality checks. I just take a short pause for a few seconds, check my hands for unnatural deformations, attempt to stick my finger through my hand, try to remember who I am, what I am doing and where I am. I also attempt to WILD every afternoon, I feel I am getting better at it.
As for the desire, I really want to LD. A large portion of my daily thoughts are about dreaming and what I could do in them. Not getting a LD in a night doesn't really matter to me, the dreams themselves are amusng enough.

I occassionally do reality checks while in the loo. You can also try to do non obvious kind of reality checking while at work.. eg look at a clock on a wall and see if there is anything weird going on about it, got a page of writing before you.. study it looking for weirdness etc.
