You're confusing masturbation with procrasturbation.

Procrasturbation is a gratifying excuse to postpone getting started on a task.

Masturbation is a blissful self-gratification that occurs when you have no other duties.

Libraries only exist in this day and age to sequester oneself in an environment where procrasturbation is very unlikely to occur.

How fast do you walk? My guess is they drove at least 60 kph, probably 80 kph. Meaning it was at least 10 km away.

A fast walking speed for an adult is 6 kph, so at least 1 1/2 hours.

Now a bike is another matter, you easily do 15-20 kph on that, making it a 30-40 min. drive, but then there is size of roads and safety etc.

I think it just depends on your major. I spent much less time in class each week in college (~12 hours) than in high school (~32 hours), and I think I also averaged less time each week on out-of-class homework/studying. Sure, there were large assignments in college like 8-10 page papers and the exams took a while to study for, but there was far less busywork for me in college, and taking 3 classes at a time instead of 6 made it so much more manageable.

You're in the sweet spot of free time that is college. Give it a few more years, it's not that unreasonable to see 9-10 hour days if you include commute times.

I personally would rather spent 8 hours at work making money than 8 hours in class/doing school work(depending on your major 8 hrs of school work is accurate)

Agreed. Engineering = shit loads of homework and reading.

level 5

It is a lot of work but honestly it's not as bad as people make it sound. You can still have a social life, but people act like engineers don't get time for friends.

level 6

None of the engineering majors at my college had free time, especially past freshman year. My floor was mostly all engineering majors, with a few aviation guys and me who switched from EE to accounting after having trouble with physics.

My roommate and I were super close friends but I barely saw him Junior year. Free time went to working on the senior design project.

level 7
54 points · 9 months ago · edited 9 months ago

Graduated with BS and MS in Aerospace Engineering. I had a lot of free time except for during the final half of my BS senior year and my MS second year. Those times did suck terribly though.

My trick: Doing my homework in a timely fashion, studying a little everyday instead of cramming, and paying attention in class. Also, I found taking notes with a pen & paper helped a lot for getting rid of distractions. I think only my programming/CAD classes really needed a laptop.

I found many of my peers didn't do homework if it wasn't worth credit (do at least some of it) and just surfed facebook in class. They would later wonder how they did so poorly on a test.

EDIT: It probably depends a bit on school and how much course load you're giving yourself. But I'd say for the average Engineering student had a good bit of free time if they manage things correctly.

level 8

I think it depends on the school. There was enough work to keep the sophomore-senior engineering majors busy doing homework every night and weekends at mine.

I was the only business major working at the brand new 2000 seat theater on campus and I was also the only one working more than 5 hours a week there. The rest were engineering majors and most of them worked a shift once or twice a week, I worked at least three days a week and all evening/rental events too. My boss later admitted he hired me over the other 30+ applicants because of my open schedule, but said it worked out because I was one of the hardest workers and he had rental clients asking for me by name for events. Point being, workload was vastly different depending on your major at my school.

There's a difficult transition to make from the school environment to the "real" world, whether that's high school or college. You start working, where you're reporting (usually) to a manager. You're conscious about your career's future, and things become competitive in an almost negative way.

The biggest change, though, is the social aspect. At school you're surrounded by a constantly changing set of peers who have at least a few things in common with you, but once you get out of the educational world... that doesn't really exist. You've got coworkers, who if you're lucky you might have a few that you vibe with. You've probably got those few friends that stick around after school, but that's really it. You have to create your own life as an adult, and to be frank, it doesn't come without a bit of effort.

It was a difficult year for me once I was totally on my own, in a new city where I only knew a few people. The upside is that most people are generally friendly, and if you get out there and try, you'll meet some cool people.

I have plenty of friends who either like, or love, their jobs. Don't work more than 8 hours (in general, special exceptions always happen). Get a decent paycheck (has some savings for emergencies, maybe even a short vacation). Some even have a house/kids.

Without college, this life style would have been far harder to achieve.

I went to college, worked full-time, and then went back to college. I'm in a program with people in similar situations. The general consensus is that working is much easier because you can go home after work and not worry about other things. In school, you go home and have to do assignments for hours. And generally there's less thinking involved in working, which makes it easier.

Am I the only person who is not a fan of this style of visualization? I see these a lot now and I don't see how it's clearer than setting up each branch as a bar.

level 2

Part of the problem is that it's popular lately and is being applied where it doesn't really belong. Sankey diagrams are intended for flow analysis, particularly when you have reunification and not just branching. It often represents a conserved quantity. This representation is actually taking advantage of the capabilities of the diagram and it would be harder to capture much of the detail in a bar chart.

level 3

Yeah, I definitely see how it helps when there's branching and unification into different groupings. Thanks.

level 2

I honestly find that a bar chart would have done this much better. They just don't line up visually on these graphs.

level 2

I think the chart type is fine to show breakdowns.

The issue I see in this case is that they don't go until the end, so you can't just see the parts all lined up on the right side.

There's no reason why "sleep" should not follow through and be on the most right side.

Also, when I first learned about this diagram, I read "Snakey" instead of "Sankey", which made a lot of sense, as the lines look a little like snakes.

The classes I had here in Germany in grade 12 (age 18) were:

  • German

  • English

  • Math

  • Sports

  • Chemistry

  • Physics

  • Social Economy

  • Philosophy

  • History

  • Art

  • Informatics

There are differences between the states but in my case you always had to have the first 4, could choose between Philosphy or Religion and Art or Music, could have another or even two addtional languages or like in my case a focus on the sciences (alternatively could have had biology or geography which I only had earlier on). Number of lessons (45min each) varried between 2 and 5/week depending on the course and if you choose it as a focus and would have it in the finals and the total number of lessons added up to a total of around 35 or so, don't remember exactly.

You're classes are only 50 minutes each? Damn I wish my highschool was like that... we had 4 classes a day for 90 min each except for the last class which was 85 min. If I had 50 min classes I think I probably would've been able to focus better, cause the last 20-30 min of class would really start to drag on for me.
