New Year's resolution progress

←Week 2 Week 4→

Here's how I did this week on my resolution about doing less than 4 stupid things a day on average:

Jan 15:


Jan 16:


(The clear part of the first status bar is 206 pixels wide...and the Sunday before this one, the dark orange part was 113 pixels wide! ;) )
Jan 17:


Jan 18:


Jan 19:


Jan 20:


(The clear part of the second status bar has a width of 668 pixels :O )
(Wait, second status bar? Aw gnat, it's only January and the bottom status bars are already being used! :( )
Jan 21:


Key:
orange - amount of stupid things I did up to that day. Sometimes I lose count, but can come up with lower and upper bounds of how many stupid things I did, so the dark orange represents the best-case scenario while it and the light orange together represent the worst-case scenario.
purple - maximum stupid things I could do up to that day and still keep my resolution (i.e. 4 × number of days into the year - 1). Still hasn't shown up on its own :(
maroon - orange and purple coexisting. A lighter maroon, if it were here, would have the same function as light orange.
The reason there are two graphs for each day is because 1,460 pixels is too wide, so I cut each graph into two 730-pixel-wide graphs.

It's become abundantly clear that I set my goal WAAAY too high.

And here's how I'm doing on the resolution about working an hour a day on one of my semi-creative projects:

(I finally started working on my userpics again! :) )
Jan 18:

Jan 19:

(Back to procrastinating :( )
Jan 20:

Jan 21:


Key:
green: The dark green shows how many days I had worked on one of my projects up to that day. I succeed if it enters the light green area.
red: shows how many days I had procrastinated and/or been too busy up to that day. I fail if it enters the pink area.

At least I finally got back to working for a couple of days!
