2% Fun

I had to make a pie chart of how I spend my time for a homework assignment yesterday. So I thought I should share. I spend 2% of my time on fun. This sucks.

Some thoughts:

You spend too much time sleeping.

But then again you spend a combined 40% of your time doing school related activities (studying, lab). So you're probly tired alot.

Wouldn't computer time/Web and rehearsal be considered fun?

actually, i sleep roughly 5 hours a night on the weeknights. it looks like 30% because i then crash over the weekends until about noon and this was done as a consideration of an entire week.

It may seem like I should just burn myself out sleeping only 10 or 20% of the time, but you have to remember that outside of the studying hours, I work in lab -- which requires a certain amount of mental focus since there is a potential for hurting myself. If I don't sleep, I could get seriously injured.

Rehearsal is not "fun" -- it is a long time commitment, and it's something that must be done every day or so. To argue that rehearsing a play is not work is doing a disservice to the sheer amount of energy that is needed to prepare a play adequately. While I may enjoy what I'm doing during rehearsal, it's still a "job" like any other that I'm doing.

And Computer Time/Web refers to work -- I'm a freelance web and graphics designer in order to earn some extra cash for my bills. I'm not just sitting around IM-ing.

Just curious, but how much time did it take you to make the chart? ;)

See, what you need to do is fold fun into one of the other categories...like eating or misc. It's that 2% hanging out there that's buggin' you. Eliminate it. You'll find you feel better immediately.

Trust me.
