Weekly review: Week ending August 28, 2015

Posted: - Modified: | review, weekly

Hypothesis: Time slept is positively correlated with feelings of accomplishment, instead of being negatively correlated as I might expect. When I think I've done a lot, I'm often surprised to find I slept quite a fair bit, too. (Conversely: when I'm surprised by how much the review tells me I've done, oddly, I'm usually also surprised by how average my sleep has been.)

Well, this week was a special case: more physical activity than usual, thanks to tiling, and lots of social interaction as well. So yeah, more sleep makes total sense.

Hmm. A fun way to test this hypothesis is to do the sorts of things that make me feel accomplished and awesome, and sleep as I need or want to. It's not a rigorous test, but it's hard to see a downside to this plan. =) Maybe they're not really correlated at all, and it's just my brain trying to see patterns.
