Exam Period: At a Glance
January 18, 2014 § Leave a comment
I’m taking a little study break and thought it would be interesting to visualize this exam period by the amount of hours spent studying each day. Of course, everyone has different study techniques. Mine is pretty much: get up, study, go to bed, get up, study, etc. I’m really bad at taking time to do anything else. Skjalg has been really good about getting out – he’s even been going to CrossFit classes 4 times a week. I wish I could relax the same way that he can. I will say that he has rubbed off on me a little over the years…at least I take breaks now.
I use an app called TimeSheet when I study to log my hours. I’ve mentioned in several times before. It’s a really great tool for getting an idea of how much time certain tasks take and how much time is really needed to study for something. So, I used the app info to add the total study hours to a calendar. The numbers represent the amount of hours from when I sat down to study to when I stopped (so they include break time, which usually totals an hour or so a day…sometimes more).
This might give you a better idea of what we go through during exam period (and explain why we are so stressed and exhausted!).
