The Clockworks Project

How I Spend My Time

This is a preliminary analysis of my Clockworks Project data, based on entries from the first 92 random alarms. Percentages will add to more than 100, since some entries fell into more than one category. The alarms were limited to times between 10 A.M. and 10:30 P.M., so some categories (exercising, eating dinner, watching TV, showering, sleeping, etc.) are missing or underrepresented.
