Media Diary: Rough Numbers

So my Media Diary data collection week is over.  Over the 7 Days from midnight 9/13 to 11:59pm 9/19 I’ve compiled the following numbers:

media

hours

computer 66.65
phone 9.99
books 5.10
pandora 4.82
TV 3.96
hybrid 2.05
planting 1.24
movie 1.06
paper 0.47
youtube 0.40
music 0.25

So it’s not surprising to me that I spent 66.65 hours on the computer. That’s consistent with my weeks lately. (I already track that time work/school independently for my own records). Most of that time is taken up with my four graduate classes.  And since I do track that time separately, I’ll bring in my work vs school data in the next post.  I’m sort of surprised that I use my phone almost 10 hours a week… it feels like so much less than that.  I Find it funny that I read as much as I listen to music on Pandora (though Pandora is almost always during computer time to help motivate me for light tasks).  And I’m happy to report that I work with the plants more than I YouTube.Some of these things were simultaneously used, but not “hybrid” use (where I used two things for the same purpose), so some of the hours do overlap. (And I’ll explore that in my next post).

So that’s a snapshot of my past week. No wonder I completely veg on weekends and only work 4-6 hours on those days.
